A few things have been bugging me since I wrote my last blog post. Here are a few quick thoughts.
In the 8/9/18 John Soloman piece in The Hill quoted in this blog post something keeps bothering me about how the Obama DOJ and FBI handled information coming from Glenn Simpson, Christopher Steele and now we find out DNC-linked lawyer, Michael Sussmann too. What did the FBI actually do to try to verify this information? James Comey and other top Obama officials have often stated some of the Steele dossier is verified, however none of them or the Dem spinmeisters ever mention anything except the Trump Golden Showers and Cohen in Prague.
Now, with this Soloman report on Bruce Ohr’s testimony, well, here’s the part that struck me as bizarre:
“A couple of the experts flagged that most of what Simpson allegedly told Ohr was not from Moscow — where the alleged plot was supposed to be based — but from a reported Russian in the United States who later seemed to disappear, according to Ohr’s notes.”
Did Ohr relay this information to the FBI? Did the FBI try to identify and locate this Russian source in America? If so, what did they find out? If not, well, why the hell not?
It just seems like these top people in the Obama DOJ and FBI were intent on investigating only the Trump campaign and willing to use Hillary campaign/DNC op dirt as the flimsy pretext to do so.
As each little bit of truth gets exposed, it looks more and more like an orchestrated effort to take down Trump and once Trump was elected, Comey, Clapper, Brennan appear to have become key players in the effort to destroy Trump’s presidency, by any means necessary. For a long time, I believed there had to be some legitimate intelligence they were using, but it’s looking more and more like they relied solely on Clinton/DNC op dirt filtered to them through Steele, Simpson and now we find out about this DNC-connected lawyer Michael Sussmann.
And at the same time Comey was peddling this Steele/Simpson dirt, he was working to shut down the field office investigations into the Clinton Foundation. That quickie Weiner laptop investigation was a PR move to give cover that the FBI had “thoroughly” investigated that laptop and “nothing to see here”, which went with the Clinton SPIN that poor Huma had no idea those emails were backing up to the Weiner home laptop. Comey let McCabe take the hit in the IG investigation into the email investigation. McCabe said Comey was aware of the FBI leak efforts to counter the leaks coming out of NY about the FBI criminal investigations into the Clinton Foundation in several states.
Comey was the one who briefed Trump about the Steele dossier dirt, then Comey was the one to keep talking to Trump privately reassuring Trump that he wasn’t the target of an investigation, stringing Trump along and trying to incriminate him. Then Comey immediately typed up his memos of what Trump had said, only instead of acknowledging those were official FBI business, Comey sent those memos to his friend, to leak to the media. At this point, I don’t believe much that James Comey says. I think Comey lied… A LOT.
