How the FBI Criminalized Trumpís Transition
The Observer ^ | 12/07/17 | Thomas Farnan

Posted on 12/07/2017 1:10:42 PM PST by detective

What do you call a system of government that cannot tolerate a transition of power without corrupt machinations by those unwilling to cede control? Banana Republic is a term that comes to mind.

The Special Counsel was appointed to determine whether Russia colluded with Trump to steal the election. Michael Flynn was indicted for a conversation he had with the Russian ambassador on December 28, 2016, seven weeks after the election.

This is an excellent article. The attempt to sabotage the Trump administration began before the election. The Russian collusion story is just part of this sabotage attempt.

From the article:

"If the Special Counsel investigation has proved anything it is that there was no Russian collusion to steal the election. None of the indictments even hint at such collusion. After almost two years of investigation there still is no evidence that Trump and Putin got together to undermine Hillary. There is no there there."

Strzok and the Clintons cooked up the whole thing.

Comey: "We are not weasels."

Crooked Hillary & the Clinton Crime Family was so in bed with the Russians on U!1 that the Russians became the logical & convenient “boogeyman” to hang around Trump’s neck.

The first time really that we have not had a peaceful transition of power.

It is not a system of government. It is a group of swamp people within the system of government. And these swamp people are rightly called traitors.

Haven’t we always said the Clintons and the Obamas would have to be dragged out of the White House?

If Libs aren’t in government they don’t eat. The Clintons have a mountain of cash by promising to do things for people when they are in power. Soon as that becomes non-existent, the “donations” dry up, and they starve.

For them it’s a matter of survival...they don’t have marketable skills.

We know that Rod Rosenstein and Mueller were involved with Uranium One. How much would you wager that counter-intelligence agent Strzok was involved too?

In actuality, the only ones we know who were trying to illegally influence the election were members of the OBAMA administration and the FBI. That we know for a certainty.

Everything else the media is spewing amounts to evidence-free accusations of non-crimes.

Nixon was not really a crook except with his “I have a Plan” Viet Nam campaign pronouncements.

By now we all know what happened. I’m now much more interested in what’s going to be done about it. So far I see the usual ineffective Congressional investigations, a perpetually out to lunch AG, and a boxed in president while Mueller and his henchmen proceed apace. I see zero concrete actions to put a stop to this so far bloodless coup attempt.

Worse than starvation......donors to the Clintons who dont get what they paid for might resort to “other” methods.

I disagree with the author's basic premise about "criminalizing the transition." That's not what the whole game plan was for the outgoing Obama administration.

The real story here was that they had engaged in illicit surveillance of Trump campaign officials for months leading up to the election. They thought they'd get away with it because they assumed Hillary Clinton would win the election, and nobody would ever learn about what James Comey and mutants like this Stroker dude were up to.

When Trump won the election they knew their malfeasance was going to be uncovered by the incoming administration, so they concocted the "Russian collusion" story to retroactively justify the surveillance.

It's really as simple as that. And it's the illicit surveillance and the shady circumstances surrounding the FISA warrant that was used to give the whole operation legal cover that's going to cause the whole thing to unravel.

there still is no evidence that Trump and Putin got together to undermine Hillary.

The whole thing is absurd. If the Russians were trying to help one candidate it would've been Mrs. Bill Clinton. She's the one who is absolutely known to the Russians to be careless with Secret and Top-Secret information. No one knows it better than the Russians - they have all of the emails.

Exactly. If they don't indict someone for something they are themselves in legal jeopardy.

YEP, and all their dirty tricks are going to backfire.
