The Black Washing Begins
This past week, there has been a concerted effort between the White House, Fox News commentators and a secret splinter group of elected GOP officials in Washington, to blackwash both the FBI and the Department of Justice in an attempt to thwart their efforts to investigate Donald Trump’s ties to Russia and Vladimir Putin.
As reported on MSNBC by Rachel Maddow back in April, 2017, several European Intelligence Agencies were already contacting U.S. Intelligence agencies to warn them of suspicious activity between members of Trump’s campaign team and Russian intelligence operatives already under surveillance by the British Intel agency GCHQ – the Government Communications Headquarters. Additional Intel agencies contributed further to these warnings to U.S. intelligence agencies, including Germany, Estonia, Poland and Australia. That report – made before the Mueller team indicted Paul Manafort and Carter Page, and secured guilty pleas from former NSA Michael Flynn and advisor George Papadopolous – can be viewed below ↓
The Blackwashing Continues
GOP House Representatives are pursuing their campaign to raise doubts about the integrity of the Mueller investigation, led by Devon Nunes, and have been meeting in secret to review classified documents obtained during the course of the investigation. Their goal is to destroy any credibility of those involved in the FBI special counsel, so that Trump might be spared impeachment, even if that means compromising themselves, the Republican Party as a whole, and our entire Democracy, for that matter.
According to todays LA Times editorial:
“Perhaps most ominous, some Republican members of Congress increasingly are sounding like Fox News commentators in besmirching Mueller’s investigation and the FBI and pushing unsupported conspiracy theories”
Here is this mornings coverage with Brian Williams at MSNBC:
Further Help From Fox News
Former Judge Jeanine Pirro, an ardent Trump supporter, and a formerly disgraced District Attorney of New York, herself investigated by the FBI for tax crimes committed by her and her husband (for which he was imprisoned for 19 months) has also publicly contributed to raising suspicions about the FBI, as seen here on the notorious Fox News channel last week:
And again, her continued attack against the institution which investigated both her and her husband for tax fraud –
Preserving our Democracy and our government as a whole is the duty of every American citizen in these threatening times. Sadly, Pirro and Nunes seek only to preserve one man, Donald J. Trump, through their distorted Republican Party loyalties rather than honoring this Great country which allowed them the golden opportunity to rise to power and success. I suspect karma has a surprise or two in store for both of them. It always does 😀
