ICYMI: Opinion| Towards the end of the contentious 2016 presidential election, then-President Barack Obama said:
“I have never seen in my lifetime, or in modern political history, any presidential candidate trying to discredit the elections and the election process before votes have even taken place.”
As with everything else B. Hussein Obama told us, that statement was hiding his greater deception.
We can now say that because Christopher Steele, the author of the never verified Trump-Russia dossier, has told us that the law firm representing Hillary Clinton’s campaign, Perkins Coie, was instructed to find a way to contest the 2016 presidential election results were she to lose.
Steele’s account of his employment is explained in a sealed Aug. 2 declaration connected to a defamation lawsuit.
The lawsuit was brought by three Russian bankers, Mikhail Fridman, Petr Aven and German Khan.
According to the Washington Times:
The trio’s American attorneys filed his answers Tuesday in a libel lawsuit in Washington against the investigative firm Fusion GPS, which handled the former British intelligence officer.
In an answer to interrogatories, Mr. Steele wrote: “Fusion’s immediate client was law firm Perkins Coie. It engaged Fusion to obtain information necessary for Perkins Coie LLP to provide legal advice on the potential impact of Russian involvement on the legal validity of the outcome of the 2016 US Presidential election.
“Based on that advice, parties such as the Democratic National Committee and HFACC Inc. (also known as ‘Hillary for America’) could consider steps they would be legally entitled to take to challenge the validity of the outcome of that election.”
Based on Steele’s report, and given to America’s hyper-partisan political environment nurtured by the mercenary propagandist media, it sure seems Team Clinton succeeded in poisoning American politics and dividing the country.
Okay, so Hillary Clinton refused to accept the results of the election. Most people have already concluded that on their own. But what, if any, was Hussein Obama’s role in this great deception?
While the direct link to Obama has not yet been affirmatively established it appears to be only a matter of time before it is.
Keep in mind that it was Obama’s FBI and DOJ that jointly asked the FISA court to rely on the Steele dossier to issue the surveillance warrant on at least four members of the Trump campaign. And, because of the two-jump rule, likely every other member of the campaign as well.
It was Obama’s FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe who testified as to the importance of the Steele Dossier when he appeared before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) in December of 2017 that:
“… no surveillance warrant would have been sought from the FISC without the Steele dossier information.”
That was after the FISC had been duped into renewing the spy warrant 3 additional times.
The significance of McCabe’s admission became glaringly important during the testimony of Obama-appointed FBI Director James Comey of June 2017 that, during a January 2017 briefing of President-elect Trump on a summary of the Steele Dossier, he told the president that the dossier was “salacious and unverified.”
Read that again, closely. In January of 2017, months after the initial FISA application, Comey admitted to the unverified nature of the underlying evidence supporting that application.
The two highest-ranking FBI officials in the Obama administration are both on record basically acknowledging they had misrepresented the validity of the evidence they had sworn to the FISC was verified and Obama would like us to believe he had no idea of the great deception taking place right under his nose?
Additionally, as ABC News reported:
More than a thousand applications for electronic surveillance, all signed by the attorney general, are submitted each year, and the vast majority are approved.
The Attorney General when the initial FISA application was submitted was Obama-appointee Loretta Lynch. Her deputy was Sally Yates. Again, Obama would like us to believe that he had no idea of the great deception taking place right under his nose?
Hillary Clinton had signaled to go “scorched earth” if needed to save her from the consequences of her alleged criminality – Espionage Act violations, Uranium One, etc – from being investigated by a new and uncontrollable administration.
Evidence continues mounting that Barack Obama was too. Either that, or Hillary Clinton was calling the shots while Obama was asleep at the wheel.
