Trump knows the Deep State, and he is not George W. Bush
WARNING: The following is, necessarily, somewhat extensive reading because the web of deceit it outlines is itself complex.
Media speculation over the meaning of President Trumps pardon of Lewis Scooter Libby is predictable and wrong.
Bush should have pardoned him....period.
George W. Bush was part of the Deep State.
Yep - and I’d wager it stuck in Cheney’s craw all this time that Bush never did the right thing...
Except Bush kept Liddy out of prison.
So many times you could just see it on Cheneys face that he wanted to take W-wussTx out behind the woodshed.
G. Gordon Liddy went to prison.
Everyone involved in the matter knew all along that Dick Armitage was the leaker. Why wasn’t he put in jail? Or was he?
“G. Gordon Liddy went to prison.”
G. Gordon Liddy was a hero. A tough as nails SOB who would do literally anything for his country. No nation survives without guys like him in the weeds. In the good old days he or someone like him would have been dispatched and that evil prick Soros would have been taken out long ago.
Scooter was jailed for miss remembering. They got him on lying to federal officials. The same way they got Martha Stewart
You might be right, but what I remember from all of that is that Libby made a statement that was at odds with a statement another witness made, and the FBI assumed he was the one lying. The other witness might have been Judith Miller, but I don't recall for certain.
Plame was not an out in the cold spy. No reason for her not to be outed. Her job did not require secrecy. They went after Libby to get someone, anyone, in the Bush administration. He said two things slightly differently under oath. So he must have lied on one of them.
Bush and Clinton mena AK
Everything else is a distraction. We're supposed to argue about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.
I'm not falling for it.
I'm simply pointing out that whether or not Plame was an "out in cold" spy or whether or not Libby said contradictory things are just two of those angels.
The point is Armitage was the leaker.
Do I have to make the point again or would somebody else like to throw their number of angels out there?
The whole Libby/Plame thing was contrived.....she was out and about, not coming in from the cold.
LET’S STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE.
CIRCA 2017—Valerie Plame: Give me $1 billion and Ill put an end to Trumps Twitter account
hotair.com ^ | 8/23/2017 | John Sexto / FR Posted by rktman
Valerie’s latest scheme is to silence President Trump on Twitter. Her plan is to raise $1 billion dollars to buy a controlling share of the social media platform and then kick Trump off. Her GoFundMe page, which has so far raised about $3,000, says this is necessary to prevent nuclear war with North Korea:(Excerpt) Read more at hotair.com ...
AND THIS-—Here’s how Valerie and her husband tapped into a bundle of tax dollars w/ help from their pal, then-Secy Hillary.
BACKSTORY Sid Blumenthal was (is) the conniving Clintons’ bagman-—a $325,000 employee of the Clinton Foundation, hired to (gag) promote Clinton’s presidential legacy. On the side, Sid promoted dubious foreign deals and schemes in which he had a financial interest many of them predicated on the fall of Libya.
Blumenthal was ambidextrous-—emailing Libya foreign policy messages w/ one hand....his other hand firmly in the State Dept cookie jar.
In one (leaked) confidential e-mail to Clinton, Blumenthal was clearly colluding w/ onetime Amb Joe Wilson (Valerie’s husband) to score a bundle of tax dollars.
GAME ON Amb Wilson pumped himself as a ‘director’ of Symbion Power-—an outfit seeking millions of dollars in contracts from an obscure government agency chaired by Hillary....the Millennium Challenge Corp (MCC)....a notorious slush fund.
In September 2010, Hillary ordered MCC to award Symbion $47 million tax dollars for (cough) ‘power projects in Tanzania.’
NEED TO KNOW ......how much of the $47 million tax dollars got to Tanzania after the players divvied it up among Blumenthal, Wilson, the Clintons, Obama?.........
FREEPER ACTION PROJECT—DO THIS NOW: demand the State Dept’s Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) books be opened. We demand to know the financial details and the scope and dimension of individuals connected to these outrageous State Dept giveaways.........govt parasites like Blumenthal, Plame and her husband pocketing zillions at taxpayers’ expense.
CONTACT CONGRESS HERE———http://www.contactingthecongress.org/
Millennium Challenge is also the State Dept agency Obama took $100 million tax dollars to give to Michelle to give to Morocco “to teach Muslim girls.”
The catch is——the US-based Obama Foundation holds the $100 mill and will dole it out when needed. (waiting for hysterical laughter to die down)
The predicate of both was the alleged commission of a crime. And, in both cases, the predicate was based a fraudulent misrepresentation that granted a Special Counsel a prosecutorial license to target political adversaries.
In short, the arrangement created the perfect stage for a miscarriage of justice.
The M.O. in Plamegate saw the Department of Justice (then Deputy Attorney General James Comey) and the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (then Robert Mueller III) collude to appoint a Special Counselor (Patrick Fitzgerald) to discover who leaked Valerie Plames C.I.A. employment to a prominent Washington, D.C. reporter, the late Robert Novak.
But finding the leaker was not what this investigation was aboutnot at all.
On October 3, 2003, President George W. Bush nominated Jim Comey to serve as Deputy Attorney General, he was unanimously confirmed by the Senate on December 9, 2003, and the President signed his commission on December 11, 2003. (Source: The White House website)
The chronology continues:
December 30, 2003: Comey appoints then U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald as Special Counsel to find who leaked Valerie Plames identity to Novak. And, with that appointment, the Special Counsels time-and-money clock started rolling.
Then, in February 2004: Acting Attorney General Comey clarified Special Counsel Fitzgeralds delegation of authority to state that the authority previously delegated to him is plenary. It also states, further, my conferral on you of the title of Special Counsel in this matter should not be misunderstood to suggest that your position and authorities are defined and limited by 28 CFR Part 600.
In short, Comey gave Fitzgerald the green light to take the investigation wherever it led; it led to Scooter Libby.
There is no record of any member of the mainstream news media asking Comey why his close friend, and Godfather to one of his children, Patrick Fitzgerald, was tasked to find a leaker who had, nearly three months earlier, confessed to the F.B.I.
