I don’t like to engage in soundbite snippets and slogans but what is happening in Washington is so outlandish and dangerous it should cause everyone to take note and become concerned. However, the Left, Liberals, Progressives, and Never Trump crowd are applauding while many Republicans in Congress are largely sitting on their hands or cowering in the shadows. We need to carefully consider what has transpired with former FBI Director Comey and the Special Prosecutor or Investigator Muller. THIS IS DANGEROUS and not just because they are going after Donald Trump but because of the damage, this can and likely will do to the Republic.
From time to time, even news agencies and newspapers who are not normally friendly to Donald Trump get it right, as did the Wall Street Journal recently. They had a headline that read: “Robert Muller’s Mission” – The special counsel needs to rise above his Comey loyalties. PRECISELY! But, I have no real hope he or those behind him will. I say that for several reasons, not the least of which is his close ties and friendship with James Comey. Birds of a feather tend to flock together and the brotherhood of bureaucracies tends to be joined at the hip in protecting their own and destroying any and all threats to their position and power.
James Comey, admitted, under oath that he LEAKED a memo with the specific intent of securing the appointment of a special counsel against Donald Trump. It was just days after that leak that his good friend Robert Muller was appointed to investigate Donald Trump for “Obstruction of Justice”. The ever-changing story of James Comey and the never-ending pursuit of the Democrats to find anything they can use against the President opens the door to a Pandora’s Box in the Swamp that no American should desire. YES, we want to have truth and an unbiased impartial investigation is perfectly fine, but that is not what is taking place. Vendettas are not only undesirable they are dangerous. You can challenge that statement but I ask that you allow me to lay the foundation for my hypothesis before you toss it out as a mere conspiracy theory.
How many recall that Robert Muller as Director of the FBI joined James Comey Deputy Attorney General in threatening to resign in 2004 over President George W. Bush’s antiterror wiretaps. Imagine that! They opposed the something very closely akin to that which Mr. Comey has used to try to find dirt on Donald Trump. As FBI Director, Mr. Muller was deeply involved in the debacle in 2006 which led to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that his FBI raid had violated the Constitution’s Speech or Debate Clause. Interesting, isn’t it? The FBI was doing things outside the Constitution’s guidelines and now this violator of the Constitution is trying to use the Constitution to investigate Donald Trump on weak if not totally bogus grounds.
We have reports from sources such as the Washington Post citing five or more unnamed officials claiming that the President is being investigated for obstruction of justice over his firing of James Comey. His act was squarely within the guidelines of the Constitution but since it is Donald Trump it is nothing short of treason, according to the Left and others who hate Trump. Then almost immediately unnamed sources advised the Jared Kushner is also under investigation. The continual leaks, innuendos, rumors, and allegations are at best immoral if not illegal. They all seem to be coming from sources directly connected to the Special Counsel’s investigation and team.
Justice Antonin Scalia warned of the monster of special counsels and articulated the reality that they possessed some powers and advantages that even the Attorney General did not. He warned that an overzealous and unaccountable independent counsel could pick his targets and then prosecute them for the most minor or technical offenses. He saw it becoming nothing more than a political tool to attack political enemies. The Supreme Court Decision to disallow the Reagan challenge, Scalia warned, would weaken the Presidency and expose the executive branch to ‘debilitating criminal investigations’. He was right and now he is gone.
There has been ZERO evidence that any collusion between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin in the 2016 election but still we hear RUSSIA STOLE THE ELECTION. How about Hillary Lost the Election instead? But some of the people Mr. Muller has elected to have join his team are possibly the most poignant proof of my assertion that this is not a genuine investigation but a fishing expedition with one purpose – DESTROY DONALD TRUMP. It would be a useful pursuit to unearth who Michael Dreeben is. What is his purpose? There is only one, “make a case for impeachment.” He has also added Andrew Weissmann, how oversaw the Enron Task Force and secured the conviction of the Arthur Andersen accounting firm. Please note that the SCOTUS unanimously overturned that conviction, but left the 28,000 U.S. employees in the cold. Mr. Weissmann is also a contributor to Hillary Clinton and his legal work has been questioned and criticized. These are fair and impartial participants? If so, then the Fox should be considered safe to guard the henhouse. There are more people that raise red flags such as Jeannie Rhee, a lawyer for the Clinton Foundation. How can anyone claim this is or will be a fair, unbiased, and impartial investigation? I use the term “Fishing Expedition” but President Trump is not off base when he calls it a “Witch Hunt.”
What we have is a clear example of the Swap Denizens going on the offensive and forming an alliance designed to TAKE DOWN THE PRESIDENT. They do not care what their actions might do to the Constitutional Republic. Their primary interest is their position, power, and purse and that is far more important to them that the Republic. America, it is totally up to us to make our voices heard. It is up to you and me to make enough noise that those in D.C. cannot ignore us and then in 2018 take action that will back up our words by sending enough of them home to get their attention. Are you up for the task? America is standing in need, “Ask not what your country can do for you but ask what you can do for your country.”
God, bless you and God bless America is my desire and prayer!
