The mainstream media have finally, reluctantly, decided to cover the FBI corruption scandal that has been featured prominently for weeks in the alternate media. The mainstream articles are characterized by coverage of secondary details that swim amidst a flood of quotes from Democrats that what is being published are just smears coordinated by Trump himself, using long-time anti-Democratic partisans. Today’s Washington Post coverage is typical of the genre.
Missing from the Post article is former Federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy’s bombshell brief that puts together the details suggesting an FBI conspiracy, in coordination with the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee. This, according to FBI agent Peter Strzok, would provide “insurance” against a Trump win in case Hillary Clinton’s vote lead evaporated as election day approached — or to bring down Trump subsequently in case he won anyway. Strzok’s insurance plan was discussed in present FBI acting director McCabe’s office.
McCabe is hoping to do a “Lois Lerner” by stonewalling Congress — as he did last week in seven hours of memory lapses and other ruses — and then retiring in March with full pension, just as she did. Lois Lerner was the IRS officer who made sure that tea party groups were maximally harassed by the IRS so that they wouldn’t interfere with President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign.
Contrary to mainstream media claims, President Trump has not been coordinating the campaign against Special Prosecutor Mueller’s investigation. That’s been the work of journalists, professionals like Andrew McCarthy writing in the alternate press, and Congressional investigators. But the President has not left his Twitter followers uninformed regarding developments.
The FBI has not lacked important co-conspirators, however — Obama’s NSA head James Clapper and CIA head John Brennan. Both have violated agency standards of professionalism by going public as virulent anti-Trump partisans since leaving office — and proven by the foolishness of their statements what poor exemplars of spymaster trade craft they are.
Meanwhile, the Mueller focus on alleged Trump collusion with Russia becomes less and less credible with the facts on the ground — what Trump is actually doing to counter Russia versus all that Obama did to assist it.
