Opinion | Lawrence David| With the IG Report pending and under review, and US Attorney John Durham’s inquiry now having morphed into a criminal investigation, it appears that there’s reason to suspect the Obama administration did, in fact, conspire to take down President Trump.
The timing of the announcement of the criminal investigation should not be viewed as independent of the IG Report but rather as the logical next step in line with the criminal wrongdoing that Inspector General Michael Horowitz uncovered.
For three years the mainstream media has repeated the same unsupported narrative that Donald Trump colluded with and is an agent of Russia.
Four independent investigations – FBI, special counsel, the Senate Intelligence Committee, and the House Intelligence Committee – uncovered no evidence of that.
However, over those three years a lot of evidence was uncovered and that evidence has been compiled by investigative journalist Lee Smith. It supports an entirely different narrative.
That narrative puts former President Obama at the center of the plot to discredit, delegitimize, and remove President Trump.
Judging by the timing of the Trump-Russia collusion narrative, coming largely post-election and continuing after Trump’s inauguration, it suggests that Obama had become desperate to protect himself from the scrutiny that Trump had promised he would order.
The fact that those in the Clintons’ orbit have tried to block the release of Smith’s book suggests that Hillary is concerned that revelations contained within the book will be politically (legally) damaging as she appears to be gearing up for another run at the White House.
“People in the Clinton world are keen for this book not to come out” – Lee Smith.
(Fox News) … Clinton family associate Sidney Blumenthal… tried to stop it from being published,” the source told Fox News, saying the Hillary Clinton confidant sent threatening letters to Smith and publisher Center Street…
…Blumenthal has been linked to the Russia investigation in the past, as former Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., implied in a 2018 Fox News interview that the Clinton confidant was a key link in the chain of information that helped create the Steele dossier.
Blumenthal has long been recognized as one of Hillary Clinton’s attack dogs.
AFTER DONALD TRUMP was elected forty-fifth president of the United States, the operation designed to undermine his campaign transformed. It became an instrument to bring down the commander in chief. The coup started almost immediately after the polls closed.
Hillary Clinton’s communications team decided within twenty-four hours of her concession speech to message that the election was illegitimate, that Russia had interfered to help Trump.
Obama was working against Trump until the hour he left office.
Background established – this is the end of part one.
