Dirtiest Trick In U.S. History Comes Into Focus

New York Sun
By CONRAD BLACK, Special to the Sun
September 13, 2018

Excerpt:

The almost unnoticed fact in the latest Democratic assault on the Trump administration is that it is based entirely on charges of confusion, the circus, incoherence, and nastiness. These themes never have to be hammered very long before the faithful take up the incantation about impeachment, but these aren’t impeachable, even if the charges were true.

The Resistance has abandoned the accusation of impeachable offenses. The press barely noticed Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s acceptance of written answers to questions about collusion, or Rudolph Giuliani’s assertion that there would be no discussion of obstruction of justice, that there has been no obstruction, and that if Mr. Mueller thinks he has evidence of any, he should present it.

Everyone now knows that the entire Trump-Russian collusion argument was a complete fabrication on the basis of the Steele dossier, which was a pack of lies from A to Z, and, of course, was commissioned and financed by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign, through a law firm and Fusion GPS. In terms of ingenious political treachery, Mrs. Clinton and her entourage scored an immense success in subverting high levels of the intelligence agencies and the Justice Department and FBI to pursue this canard with the zeal they did.

On what has emerged to date, fanatically anti-Trump figures in Justice and the FBI swallowed Mr. Steele’s story and invested in it so heavily they severely compromised the institutions that employed them. Once Mr. Trump was elected, instead of letting the ruse die quietly, they swallowed harder and set out to claim that the election result was fraudulent because of the illegal Trump-Russian collusion.

Former national intelligence director James Clapper announced just two months ago that he believed the Russians had determined the election result, contradicting James Comey’s view. Senator Mark Warner, Democrat of Virginia, proclaimed 18 months ago that a thousand Russian canvassers had swung Wisconsin to Trump. The apparently thoroughly Trump-deranged John Brennan, former CIA director, has been routinely accusing the president of treason for almost two years.

The 2016 Democratic vice-presidential candidate, Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia, mused about whether the president’s son, son-in-law, and former campaign manager were guilty of treason because they met with a Russian lawyer who wanted to talk about the Magnitsky Act (nothing to do with the election).

Hillary Clinton must have been serenely confident that the source, quality, and funding of the Steele dossier would never see the light of day. In her memoir of the election, “What Happened” (not a question), she directly blames former FBI director James Comey for “shivving” her three times (two of the occasions were exonerations of her questionable appropriateness), and Donald Trump’s semi-treasonable collaboration with the Russian government, and she quoted Mr. Steele in support of this.

When the fact came to light that her campaign had funded this nonsense for about $9 million, she breezily said that it was “campaign information” but accurate anyway. (Treason applies only when collaboration is with a country with which the betrayed country is at war.)

It was the dirtiest political trick in American history, but, in fairness to Mrs. Clinton, I doubt if she intended to do more than throw muck at her opponent in the last days of the election, since the Billy Bush tape had not, as had been expected, knock (sic) him out. When she lost, as Mr. Steele himself was still, with the aid of some officials, padding around the less reputable media pushing his dossier, Mrs. Clinton seized on it to explain her inexplicable defeat and threw in poor old Comey, who had bent his giraffe-like frame over backwards to exonerate her on the emails debacle, where she almost surely lied to a federal official, Mr. Comey in particular.

*snip*

The mystery is why Robert Mueller, for all his experience and vaunted probity, chose a gang of rabid Trump-haters to conduct this operation, and why, when he must have realized it was a wild goose chase, he didn’t fold it up or turn it into an investigation of the sleazy conduct of Mr. Trump’s enemies, which, given the Russian connection, would have been within his mandate.

There is now evidence that Mr. Steele, even after he was fired by the FBI for leaking material, via senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr “and his lovely wife,” as Mr. Trump calls Mrs. Ohr (who worked at Fusion with Mr. Steele), moved straight to Mr. Mueller’s special-counsel team. Mr. Mueller may have mishandled this so badly, he ensnares himself in the misconduct of those who commissioned him.

Conrad Black could have gone longer with details of the rolling coup. Even the internet can handle only so many words in an essay. His logic is easy to follow. Especially for anyone who knew what the Mueller investigation was from the get go.

However, I disagree completely with his observation:

Quote

I recommend clemency. I don’t believe in a deep state, just an arrogant, smothering, bipartisan mindset that easily construed self-defense as service of the national interest, even when it involved criminal conduct. In this respect it does bear some comparison with the conduct of Nixon underlings in the Watergate era.


The deep state does not engage in "self-defense as service". It is actively trying take over this nation. It does not engage in "the conduct of Nixon underlings". This is a cabal of conspirators who want to wrest power not from PRESIDENT Donald J. Trump but the American people.

I'd never looked at it from this angle, but Robert Mueller could' a been somebody. If he'd just bailed on the Russia Collusion nonsense and turned his attention to the REAL culprits in this fiasco, namely Clinton, the DOJ and the FBI, he'd have been the hero of every red blooded American in the country. As it is, he's just another corrupt co-conspirator with egg on his face.

I have not been paying much attention to this and refuse to, until I hear the word grand jury THEN I will start to give it some credence, until then, it's just a bunch of swamp rats as usual.

You can also commit treason by threatening the security of the United States even when the country is not at war. The Rosenbergs were convicted of treason even though the United States has never been at war with the Soviet Union.

Then, did Trump threaten the security of the United States? Only in the Democrats' imagination, but they could hallucinate anything.
