Let’s say today’s date is Independence Day — July 4, 2019.
It’s been a tumultuous eight weeks as a sea change has taken over the political scene in the US.
Who could have seen the day when former President Obama and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton among others would face federal sedition and possibly treason charges as a result of the information in the declassified release of the FISA warrant applications in mid-March.
As I have written about numerous times, the Russian Dossier was a contrived plan brewed up by ex-CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to cover up earlier spying campaigns on GOP candidates Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz and perhaps other potential presidential Republican nominees. Both Brennan and Clapper will be tried in a military court as well due to the sedition charges and pending treason charges.
The question that will put both Brennan and Clapper away is How did the British, Australian, New Zealand and Canadian spy operations, as part of the Five Eyes cooperative surveillance program know what was contained in the FISA warrant? The secretive court is not even subject to Freedom of Information requests, yet foreign nationals knew all about its rulings against Trump campaign associate Carter Page and the two hop ruling.
The foreign spies knew the FISA court allowed the two-hop rule when spying on Page. This meant that anyone Page communicated with was subject to surveillance and then anyone that group communicated with was also a subject to the spies. So that gets you very far up the Trump organization, if not to the top.
The fact that Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch allowed the President to be implicated in this illegal spying operation — with assistance from Five Eyes allies — proves that no one in the White House believed Hillary Clinton would ever lose the election.
The fact is the information was included in Obama’s daily intelligence briefings and had audio and video surveillance presented in the Situation Room in the basement of the White House has put Obama in the cross hairs of two military criminal probes.
Trump was more than likely made aware of the Brennan/Clapper spying operation by the then NSA Director Mike Rogers, who is said to have told the President-elect to move elsewhere to form his transition team. The President-elect took his staff to his Bedminster, NJ mansion the next day.
And while the feds got Al Capone on tax aversion, Hillary will face much more criminal charges besides just improperly filing on Clinton Foundation tax situation. She faces multiple felony fraud charges.
This blockbuster news has moved the names we were hearing for months into the footnotes of history. Ex-FBI Director James Comey and staff as well as DOJ’s Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein et al become bit players who probably gave up everything they knew and then some to get a better deal from prosecutors and/or tribunials.
The rumblings coming out of Federal Attorney’s office in Utah appear to implicate members of the media with collusion and collaboration with Democratic partly members. Fed prosecutor John Huber may have a monumental effort to bring these charges, he believes he has the proof to get around any First Amendment defense on the part of these “journalists”.
It should be a glorious celebration in DC this Fourth of July.
