Today we continue looking at the massive implications unleashed by the report released by Special Counsel John Durham. Before we get into the detail, we need to give ourselves a moment of must needed levity. We turn to my good buddy, Jim Gossett, who gives us a fantastic, yet satirical, nostalgic look-back at the opening of The Muppet Show. This time, his version is called The FBI Show.
We then take a moment to look at when James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence, appeared on CNN with Anderson Cooper in October of 2019. At the time, he was making a comment about how changes in the intelligence community (IC), thanks to President Obama, led to the Mueller investigation to be able to look into Russian Collusion with Donald Trump. Though he was trying to compliment the former president, looking back now, in light of the Durham report, we now know who is responsible for the weaponization of the IC.
This leads to testimony by former CIA Director John Brennan to the House Government Weaponization Committee hearing where he said there was intelligence regarding Russian colluding with the Trump campaign. Unfortunately for Brennan, this was before the Durham report dropped. Will he be held in contempt for perjury? Because we know he was aware of the hoax given it was he, himself, who have the briefing to President Obama, VP Biden, AG Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey. The sad part, if I am being honest, he wasn’t really lying. He was telling the truth. There was intelligence. He just left off the part where it was falsely manufactured intelligence.
We also have learned that Peter Strzok, lead FBI investigator behind Operation Crossfire Hurricane, was informed by the CIA that Hillary Clinton could be behind the Russian Collusion story, but he never shared that with anyone else. Every FBI agent interviewed during Durham’s four-year investigation, could not remember once being told about the CIA memo or the possibility they were operating based on a hoax created by Hillary Clinton.
Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) wants the House to go after Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) for all of the lies he spread and all the damage he has done to our nation. In similar fashion, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said reminds us the same pattern used by the Hillary Clinton campaign to fabricate the Russian Collusion hoax is the same pattern used to hide the Hunter Biden laptop. They follow the same playbook because they know they will be aided by the media and amplified by social media.
While these folks in the GOP are saying all the right words, they are, in point of fact, just words. Unless they can do something, the weaponized agencies will continue to get away with it and continue to ignore the Constitution. Congress really only has the power of oversight and the power of the purse. While the former can be ignored (it seems) if witnesses ignore requests to appear, the latter cannot. However, the latter takes immense intestinal fortitude and I just don’t see that coming from so many lawmakers with spines of linguine. All we can hope for is for enough Americans to have the eyes and minds opened to how we are much closer to any Oligarchy than we are a Republic, and that is a scary realization to come to.
