I fear this is true. The corruption in DC is so glaring, so wide-spread and far-ranging that a full investigation and prosecution would be an existential threat to “the state”. The movie “Clear And Present Danger” was quite prescient.
The epiphany from the whole Trump collusion fiasco is that CNN and MSNBC don’t peddle fake-news and go into the tank for the far-left because they agree ideologically, though some of their anchors and pundits undoubtedly do. They are in the tank and peddle fake news because they thought it was a good business plan. They pandered to a gullible, biased market of far-left kooks, and it worked for two years.
Exit questions for leftists: don’t you feel stupid? Do you have any idea how you have been taken advantage of?
Victor Davis Hanson does his homework. He is one of the most qualified political writers of our time and is not a far-right nut. He knows his stuff. This is treason, and should be prosecuted as such. The penalty for that used to be death. I think the left and the deep state needs to pay attention.
In fact, it is a cesspool of dishonesty, dirty tricks, extra-legal activity and corruption and needs strict oversight.
And one of those chiefly involved in the past, John Brennan is an unhinged Trump-hater who has been credibly accused of leaking confidential information and may still hold a top-secret security clearance. He need to be investigated.
The draining of the DC swamp may soon begin. Former FBI assistant director and noted Trump-basher Andrew McCabe is about to face criminal prosecution on charges that he leaked classified information and lied under oath. Former FBI director and current left-wing media darling James Comey may well be facing the same. Will former Attorney General Loretta Lynch be next? When will she testify under oath about the infamous tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton? Did Lynch discuss with Comey a scheme to exonerate Hillary Clinton?
Fact: by not recommending prosecution for Clinton, Comey exceeded his authority.
Fact: Comey has admitted that he and others assumed Clinton would win the election, and that his decision to exonerate her was based partly on political considerations.
Fact: Hillary and the DNC paid for the phony dossier to smear Trump.
Fact: the entire special counsel investigation is based on a faulty FISA court warrant that was based on erroneous information. Mueller’s entire investigation should thus be halted immediately, except he is in on it too and likely knows he could be in trouble.
Fact: other high level FBI employees (Strzok and Page for example) were actively working to get Clinton elected.
Fact: McCabe has said he leaked information to the press at the behest of Comey.
This is just speculation, but it is possible that Clinton promised Lynch, Comey, McCabe and who knows who else all sorts of high-level positions in her government and therefore the whole email things should just go away. This could be the worst conspiracy in US government history. And the only one who looks clean right now is Trump, unless you really care about Stormy Daniels.
Buy some popcorn and watch the fun ensue as the DC vermin turn on each other.
