I always expect that the progressive left will act without intellectual honesty or conscience to achieve their ends. I did not expect the progs to be aided in their efforts by eunuchs in the Dept. of Justice. As Andy McCarthy opines, The Justice Dept. Is Killing Trump.
Everything in the public record to date suggests that the claim of “Russian hacking” had no quantifiable impact on the 2016 election, that President Trump was not involved in the Russian “hacking,” nor that the “hacking” was in any way coordinated on Trump’s behalf by someone in his campaign or administration. Yet since December of 2016, the progressive left (and Hildabeast) have made a cause celebre of “Russian hacking” in order to portray the election of Donald Trump as illegitimate. The Democrats were aided and abetted in that effort by the Director of the FBI, James Comey, who on one hand publicly announced in March that the FBI was investigating the Trump administration for ties to Russia and who, on the other hand, refused to relieve any of the pressure on the Trump administration by correcting the public record — including multiple requests that Comey make public that Trump himself was not and never had been a subject of the probe.
Let’s switch gears for a moment. As to special counsels, can you recall all of the special counsels appointed under Obama? No need to wrack your memory. There were zero.
Fast and Furious – none. Lois Lerner, the weaponization of the IRS on behalf of Democrats, and the IRS destruction of evidence – none. Hillary’s serial serial violation of our security laws and the laws governing destruction of government records – none. I could go on and on. The Obama years were an illegal enterprise. The Obama White House brazenly ignored the calls for a special counsel in each and every case, and certainly none of the Obama appointees in the Justice Department objected. They were, after all, on a mission to advance the progressive cause.
Fast and Furious demanded appointment of a special counsel. It involved potential illegal acts by senior members of the AG’s office. It is not possible for there to be a bigger conflict of interest than for the AG to investigate the AG. And then of course there was Hillary Clinton. On that one, it is now certain that the FBI and AG conducted a sham investigation, that AG Lynch coordinated her and the FBI’s use of language with the Clinton campaign, and that FBI Director Comey grossly overstepped his legal authority explicitly to prevent the appointment of a special counsel in that matter. In retrospect, it equally required the appointment of a special counsel.
