“If that son of a bitch wins, we’ll all hang from nooses!”
-Hillary R. Clinton to Donna Brazile (2016)
The Mueller investigation was an insurance policy against the possibility of a Trump win in 2016. It was not their first plan, it was a contingency plan in the event that their preferred candidate failed to beat Trump. This is a fact that is reflected in the text messages of former FBI agents and lovebirds Peter Strozok and Lisa Page.
We’ve been saying this for two and a half years. Now the truth is coming out as a matter of public record.
Last week, Senator Rand Paul told Fox News that the Russia collusion investigation “began with abuses of power.” He said, “I think they took this great power we entrusted with them to spy on foreigners and they directed it against Americans for partisan reasons. So, I think this has to be investigated and I think it’s wrong for any Republican to think, ‘Oh gosh, this is a legitimate investigation.’ I think it’s a very partisan investigation.”
In their report, Newsmax.com wrote, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), who has called for Trump’s impeachment, “[…] has argued in recent weeks that Trump should be impeached based on special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. He joined Democrats in pushing for impeachment following Mueller’s public statement on his investigation, in which he said that Justice Department policy prohibits charging a sitting president with a crime.”
Paul commented that he believes Amash is alone in this sentiment among Republicans. He said, “I do not believe Republicans will support impeachment.”
Paul has been talking about this for some time now. It’s a habit that goes some distance to explain why the Senator from Kentucky has been physically attacked by left-wing goons several times since Trump took office. Early in May, he told reporters that he believes Mueller’s special council was “politically motivated from the very beginning.”
In the second week of May, be told ABC This Week host George Stephanopoulos, that he believes serious constitutional issues are at the heart of the way the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act has been used against American citizens. Not the least of which include illegal surveillance of citizen Trump and his campaign team.
“The primary constitutional issue is whether or not the FISA court, which is supposed to spy on foreigners, which has a lower constitutional standard,” Rand Paul said. “… can you use them to spy on a presidential campaign or seek information about Americans — that truly is a travesty and unconstitutional, and that’s the root of the problem we should be addressing.”
Paul goes on to describe the underhanded tactics used by the FBI to prosecute people on process crimes. This was a practice used by the Mueller probe to destroy the lives of dozens of people while portending to investigate Trump. The prosecutors reference an event, which they have recorded in a certain way. They then ask the subject to describe the event. If the person’s memory fails, or if their story deviates from the form on record- then they are charged with lying. It’s a tactic known in law as a perjury trap- and it is illegal- though very difficult to prosecute.
Senator Paul described it this way, “Most Americans would hate the idea that you’re called in to talk to the FBI and when you’re called in they say, ‘you know, what did you say on the phone to somebody two months ago?’” he said. “And if you describe that inaccurately, then the government’s going to say ‘we’re going to put you in jail.’”
He referred to the same tactic as it was used to convict Martha Stewart. She was convicted of lying about a stock sale when her memory failed as she attempted to describe the manner in which she sold a certain stock.
Earlier this week I described Mueller’s long history of using underhanded tactics to push dubious government agendas, railroad the political enemies of the powerful, and to deceive the American people through brutal lawfare.
The Special Council is just Mueller’s latest foray into the realm of legalistic smears. He and his anti-Trump team have buried dozens of lives and destroyed careers in the effort to thwart the will of the people.
At present, we await the investigation of Attorney General William Barr. There is every reason to believe that those who set the Mueller insurance policy into action may soon face real justice at the hands of the Trump administration.
