Perhaps this wasn’t actually the most statistically improbable perfect storm of innocent oversights and clerical errors, all of which worked against Carter Page.
The unredacted, exculpatory facts will be downplayed or ignored, in favor of the sweet, sweet comfort of the unprovable, and thus easily manipulated, redactions.
Sally Yates’ Justice Department had no legitimate reason to believe Michael Flynn was either compromised or susceptible to compromise, yet they carried on as if it were so.
The bad news for Trump is that Schiff is the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and he’s dropped any pretense of accepting a Mueller decision as the final word on collusion.
With the possible exception of former CIA director John Brennan, no one had a more uncomfortable post-Mueller report release than one James Comey.
It’s beginning with the false narrative that there’s a ‘fight’ with Attorney General William Barr over releasing the Robert Mueller report to Congress.
There will be no public mea culpa from the media for two years of feverishly biased hyping of unfounded allegations that the president of the United States is engaged in treason.
In a different time, the media would be out following up on the inconsistencies and alarming assertions Andrew McCabe provided in his interviews.
Would you do everything you could to determine whether you could trust a source who lied to you before relying on him to treat a U.S. citizen guilty of treason?
If James Comey, who signed the FISA application, couldn’t figure out who funded the dossier, how could a judge?
The information Christopher Steele was providing so perfectly fit into a narrative of conspiracy that it was impossible to ignore, and almost too good to check.
The inspector general’s direct answer whether James Comey lied was curious, in that his conclusion conflicts with facts and testimony detailed in his own report.
The decision to use Stefan Halper as an informant instead of a messenger cannot possibly be considered a favor to the Trump campaign. It’s as insulting as it is ridiculous to assert.
Consider James Comey’s vague responses and the unlikeliness of the scenarios he describes. There has to be an explanation for this anomaly in Comey’s carefully crafted narrative.
Democrats’ memo destroys only straw-men unassociated with the proceedings, and confirms the use of raw intelligence to argue an American citizen committed treason.
They must address whether the FISA court was misled about the credibility of the Steele dossier.
Lots of somebodies are lying about what’s inside and behind the House Intelligence Committee memo charging abuse of secret surveillance measures.
Who has the most to lose here? The answer to that question will help you decide who’s closer to the truth in this matter.
Consider it for a moment. What if Donald Trump had nothing whatsoever to do with any nefarious activities related to collusion, conspiracy, or cooperation with Russia?
It’s fascinating that James Clapper continues to put himself in front of reporters as an authoritative source of information regarding an investigation he knows nothing about.
