The left wing in the media and congress are cherry picking out of the report the phrase, “We did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced the decisions.”
They left are hanging all their hopes on that, while totally ignoring the rest of the report… as if that sentence makes all else in the report irrelevant, or better somehow.
But, I think John Durham has something to say about that which the left hangs their hopes. He’ll release his report soon.
The funny thing is, the Nunes Report from last year claimed the Carter Page FISA warrant relied primary on the Steele Dossier, among other things.
The left wing media and their sock puppets online all claimed he was wrong and it was a distraction. The insults cast at Nunes were disgusting, frankly.
Horowitz Report: “We determined that the Crossfire Hurricane team’s receipt of Steele’s election reporting on September 19, 2016 played a central and essential role in the FBI’s and Department’s decision to seek the FISA order. ”
Nunes is totally vindicated. He was right. Nunes also asserted that Peter Strzok was the one who decided to use the Steele propaganda.
Horowitz Report: “We determined that the FBI’s decision to rely upon Steele’s election reporting to help establish probable cause that Page was an agent of Russia was a judgment reached initially by the case agents on the Crossfire Hurricane team.”
Peter Strzok was in charge of Crossfire Hurricane.
Again… Nunes is vindicated.
In the end, Horowitz reported, “at least 17 significant errors or omissions in the Carter Page FISA applications, and many additional errors in the Woods Procedures,” which were the 3 FISA warrants granted after the first one on Carter Page.
To this day, not one allegation in the Steele Dossier has been substantiated in even the least bit.
And Comey? That guy really needs to keep his mouth shut, unless he’s planning on being the fall guy for this debacle. Comey took an action at a key point in time that moved forward onto the next stage the left’s plan to remove Trump. That next stage was getting Mueller appointed to lead an independent council.
An independent council has immense investigative powers and is, as the name suggests, independent of direct oversight. An IC can dig into anything or anyone connected to the target, and Mueller’s team cast a very wide net.
Mueller got some people around Trump, that true, but the thing the poor left wing losers can’t get over is he found nothing on Trump.
I’m as surprised as the left. I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016, because Trump sure as hell acts like a shady used car salesman, and I figured he was corrupt somehow. Consequently, I figured Mueller would find something, but when all we saw coming from the IC was the squeezing of Trump associates, and half the people charged were charged for process crimes, I knew Mueller had nothing at all…
It was a fishing expedition and Trump survived it.
Trump is cleaner than I imagined, so I decided to vote for Trump in 2020.
I think the democrats lost many people right there. Those of us who understood the power of an independent council knew if there were anything if Trump was corrupt, Mueller would find it.
The real problem is there’s a cancer in our bureaucracy… Setting political motivations aside, we’ve had people, whether acting individually or in concert with others, engaged in actions that undermined a duly elected President.
Trump is doing what voters elected him to do…
- NAFTA fixed or scrapped.
- get tough with China on trade.
- no more trade agreements, particularly with China.
- regulatory and tax relief.
- don’t go into Syria.
- American immigration laws enforced.
- better border security… a wall would be nice… with deadly alligators maybe. 😉
- stop giving foreign aid to corrupt countries!
The point being, the things Trump’s doing aren’t illegal. They’re actions Trump’s voters wanted, but there are elements in the bureaucracy fighting Trump as if his actions are illegal. Sadly, many elements in our media are helping to sell that narrative.
Me thinks they’re invested in an outcome… quite literally invested.
Well, I guess, at this point, mere freedom is a motivator. Bureaucrats fighting Trump have their very freedom at stake. As we well know, Durham has his own investigation, and it’s a criminal investigation. Given Horowitz’ report on the Hillary email server investigation, combined with his report on Crossfire Hurricane, anyone with half a brain should see where Durham’s investigation is headed.
There’s a lot of people sweating, and there’s a lot of left wingers in government and media trying to help them cover it up… sadly.
But I see the incremental destruction of this house of cards, and it does fill me with hope justice will be served.
