======================= SPECIAL SUNDAY POST ======================
Something is afoot as the midterm elections draw near.
Expected BOOMS have died on the vine as DOJ Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has further exhibited his nine lives. His sit down with President Trump on Air Force One and subsequent nixing of his Congressional panel testimony prove he surely has cards left in his hand to be played.
I have to assume through the continuing silence on Rosenstein from the White House the FISA declassification will not be used to taint the midterm election. My thought suggests that the parsing of all the information from declassifying the FISA documents would require a few weeks to decimate the impact of the news for general population.
You could not break the news with revelations that the Obama White House was aware and updated almost daily though intelligence briefings about the spying on a rival party presidential campaign and president-elect by using a Democratic Party oppositional report to allow the Clinton campaign to get espionage court to allow the FBI/CIA through our allies to spy on American citizens.
That scenario is just too much for a general population to wrap their heads around in two weeks. And given the divisiveness of the country, it would probably fall on deaf ears as partisan news organizations would couch the charges as a means just to sway the election.
No, indictments would need to be revealed with press conferences and perp walks to even register a blip on the radar of the national stage.
The time needed for all that has passed and the lack of communication from the administration has pretty much confirmed this theory.
I have to assume that Trump’s White House feels there is no need to muddy the waters even further, since their polling data shows the House and Senate are not in jeopardy at this time.
That’s what I take away from the lack of BOOMS prior to the election. The BOOMS will occur on Nov. 6.
