The MuellerGate Cover-Up Is Unraveling

Posted on | May 25, 2019 | Comments Off on The MuellerGate Cover-Up Is Unraveling

There was never any “Russian collusion” by the Trump campaign, and so why was there a need for a nearly two-year-long special counsel investigation? Because when President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey in May 2017, this caused a panic among “Deep State” operatives who feared the truth about the Obama administration’s surveillance of the Trump campaign would be exposed. Therefore, to conceal this scandal — to protect the people at the Department of Justice and other agencies who had been involved in approving this political surveillance — Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel, to manufacture a narrative of Trump wrongdoing that would distract from what really happened. That’s what it looks like to me, anyway. The Mueller investigation was actually a cover-up, and now that Attorney General William Barr has ordered an investigation of the origins of the “Russian collusion” story, Democrats and their media allies are beginning to panic:

California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff called Attorney General William Barr’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe “un-American” in a Thursday night tweet.
“While Trump stonewalls the public from learning the truth about his obstruction of justice, Trump and Barr conspire to weaponize law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies,” Schiff wrote. “The coverup has entered a new and dangerous phase. This is un-American.”
President Donald Trump on Thursday directed the heads of the CIA, FBI, State Department and other agencies to cooperate with Barr as he investigates the origins of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
The president also released a memo authorizing the attorney general to “declassify, downgrade, or direct the declassification or downgrading of information or intelligence” regarding the investigation into whether or not the Trump campaign was surveilled unlawfully.

Schiff’s claims are a bizarre inversion of reality. How is it a “coverup” to declassify documents? Wouldn’t a “coverup” seek to conceal secrets, rather than to disclose them? And who was it that “weaponize[d] law enforcement . . . against their political enemies”? Isn’t that exactly what the Obama administration did to the Trump campaign?

Meanwhile, Ace of Spades calls attention to the case of Svetlana Lokhova, a Russian academic who is suing FBI intelligence asset Stefan Halper and several media organizations who published stories based on Halper’s claim that Lokhova was a spy. She says Halper deliberately arranged to have Lokhova seated next to Gen. Michael Flynn (at the time, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency) during dinners at England’s Cambridge University. Halper then allegedly reported the Lokhova-Flynn meetings as evidence that Flynn was “compromised.”

This manufactured evidence subsequently became part of the “Russian collusion” narrative, and was reported by the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and NBC — all of whom are named as defendants in Lokhova’s lawsuit. So you see that there was a circularity of influence (between the intelligence community, Democrat politicians and the news media) involved in creating this narrative and selling it to the public, in order to sustain political support for the Mueller probe which, as I say, was intended to conceal the truth about all this.

Over the course of the next few weeks, Americans are going to learn how they have been deceived. Even Democrat voters who despise Trump will no longer be able to ignore how the Obama administration misused U.S. intelligence as part of an effort to help elect Hillary Clinton. CNN’s ratings are already in the toilet. How many people will still be watching CNN after it becomes evident — as it soon will — that the network was complicit in this dishonest propaganda operation?
