In Wednesday’s online edition of the New York Post, columnist Michael Goodwin wrote that for all the world, it sure does appear as though a massive scandal is engulfing the FBI (and, to another extent, the Department of Justice).
Specifically, based on weeks of reporting from just about everyone but the “mainstream media,” it appears as though the Obama administration, using Deep State operatives within both agencies and throughout the Executive Branch, improperly and illegally spied on the campaign of President Donald J. Trump.
Comparing what we’re seeing with the 2007-2009 Great Recession, when lawmakers bailed out banks after declaring them “too big to fail,” Goodwin sees the burgeoning scandal involving the nation’s — and the world’s — premier law enforcement agency as “too big to believe.”
“Yet each day brings credible reports suggesting there is a massive scandal involving the top ranks of America’s premier law enforcement agency,” Goodwin writes.
“The reports, which feature talk among agents of a ‘secret society‘ and suddenly missing text messages, point to the existence both of a cabal dedicated to defeating Donald Trump in 2016 and of a plan to let Hillary Clinton skate free in the classified email probe,” he said. “If either one is true — and I believe both probably are — it would mean FBI leaders betrayed the nation by abusing their powers in a bid to pick the president.”
The columnist noted that it also seems likely, based on reporting and some credible evidence, that the Clinton-financed “Trump dossier” — which was supposed to be political opposition research — was used by the FBI to obtain a FISA court warrant so it could spy on a political campaign.
Goodwin (and others) also believe that the FBI got approval for a counterintelligence surveillance warrant to spy on Team Trump by representing the dossier as real intelligence — without telling the court it was opposition research and that none of it had been substantiated.
Fox News, The Gateway Pundit, and a smattering of other news websites including The National Sentinel have been all over this developing story. Circa News investigative reporter and Fox News contributor Sara A. Carter, along with the network’s top host Sean Hannity, have also done yeoman’s work in getting out detail after detail of this story, beginning way back when it was first learned that the infamous “Trump dossier” was paid for by Clinton’s campaign.
Who hasn’t done any work on this story? Fake news outlets like CNN, The New York Times, the Washington Post (where, apparently, democracy is dying in darkness), and other establishment media outlets.
Now, who has tried to block efforts to inform the American people (of all political persuasions) about this massive corruption?
That would be Democrats — members of the same party whose president no doubt directed this scandal from top to bottom, along with hand-picked sycophants within his administration. (Related: Bongino: ‘SH*T is about to HIT THE FAN’ for Dems, OBAMA, over ‘devastating’ FISA memo from House Intel Committee.)
This is a conspiracy like no other. This is a scandal like no other. The abuses of our intelligence apparatus and judicial system is mind-boggling. Think about it and let it sink in real good: A sitting president and his administration politicized two of our most important institutions — our legal system and our intelligence-gathering institutions — to not only exonerate a Democratic presidential candidate who was so obviously guilty of violating national security statutes she should have been put away for decades, but also to spy on a rival campaign.
The Democrats have done this, not the Republicans. This is the textbook definition of “Conspiracy to commit offense or to defraud the United States,” at a minimum. There should be arrests. There should be convictions. There should be examples made.
Yet, many Americans are clueless about it because of a dearth of reporting by the “responsible media.”
These abuses are all believed to be detailed in a four-page “FISA memo” authored by Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., for the House Intelligence Committee and fellow lawmakers. They are at present trying to get it out to the public, but it’s classified.
It can be instantly declassified by the president of the United States.
Not only should Trump do that, he should read it during the upcoming State of the Union Address, so that every American has an opportunity to learn just how corrupted their most cherished institutions have become, and who attempted to use that corruption to their advantage: Democrats.
If this corruption doesn’t stop here, now, it will only fester and metastasize even further, spreading throughout Big Government. We elected Trump to “drain the swamp.” This would be a huge step toward that objective.
