Last night news broke that Christopher Steele, the author of the series of reports that make up the Steele dossier, at the center of the Trump-Russian Collusion investigation, won’t cooperate with the DOJ investigation into the origins of the investigation.
I posted a comment pertaining to that and here’s part of it:
“The respective partisan spin choruses jump into action and relegate everyone to one camp or the other, but I lean towards believing that while there was definitely anti-Trump bias among most of the key players in the Trump-Russia mess, there was also these massive Dem/mainstream media spin attacks launched to try to propel specific political or government actions, at key points in this mess.
I believe these Dem-orchestrated spin attacks impaired judgment and decision-making at the highest levels of the FBI and our intel agencies. I don’t think there was some massive conspiracy within the FBI – I think they were deliberately being fed false information by Dem operative lawyers and taking the mainstream media news seriously.
In war, they always talk about the “fog of war”, well, I believe that this hysteria created by the this scorched earth SPIN info war played a significant role in clouding judgment – I’ll call it the fog of SPIN war factor, for lack of a better way to say this. I suspect a good deal of what happened wasn’t malevolent actions in the FBI, but a combination of factors, where the media hysteria, the bogus Steele dossier being sold as reliable intel (by some foreign intel peeps too) added to Trump’s often bizarre statements fawning over strong men thugs in the world, led to real concerns that Trump was conspiring with Russia. Add in that Trump really was trying to make a deal for a Trump-Moscow project, the concerns were justifiable.
Where things broke down was in acting before calmly, and carefully vetting intel, but here again, this relentless Dem SPIN effort in the media, the Clinton lawyer operatives seeding false information, presented as real intel into the State Dept., the FBI and intel agencies. I believe the real “crimes” weren’t Comey and the FBI – BUT with the Clinton operatives who deliberately and maliciously fed this false information into official government channels – to deceive them. That Shearer dossier needs to be investigated and these Dem lawyers who were feeding this garbage into official channels.
What happened to me was deliberately false information was fed to a retired general, who hates my guts – but I have no way to ever prove it happened. I was writing about their malicious, orchestrated SPIN on those Excite message boards in ’98 too.
Anyway, I honestly think Rosenstein was manipulated by Clinton-aligned lawyers too to appoint a special counsel- being bombarded with this false information and pressured to act. They deliberately created this crisis spin environment using the media.
McCabe was an expert on working Russia mafia cases and terrorism. I went back a reread the Horowitz summary and McCabe’s wife receiving a lot of campaign money was investigated. McCabe had actually gone through proper FBI channels reporting that to the ethics people. Horowitz’ team recommended policy changes, but McCabe followed the rules. I still think Comey knew about the media leaks to try to stem the flow of unauthorized leaks coming out of the New York field office. Comey told Horowitz he didn’t know anything about that. Anyway, I want to read some of McCabe’s book, especially the part where that quote was pulled about Mueller’s “left behind” cell phone. I like to know what other information came before and after that cherry-picked quote. We all “cherry-pick” quotes, and sometimes those cherries are ripe with important facts, but too often they’re sour, taken out of context or misleading pieces of information.”
I boldfaced the key point. The Dem lawyers, who were feeding the Steele dossier and later the Shearer dossier into the Obama State Department, the intel agencies and the FBI. They were deliberately trying to perpetrate fraud. This is how the Clinton operatives operate – from ’98 to today. They intertwine U.S. government assets with their private operatives, to advance for their partisan and personal goals (and vendettas). The email scandal boiled down to Hillary merged her State Department email onto the personal foundation server in their home, that Bill Clinton had set up. This melding of official intelligence with Hillary’s operatives is par for the course. She did the same thing as Secretary of State. Clinton operatives pushed the Steele dossier, their op dirt, into official government channels and simultaneously seeded that dossier throughout the mainstream media, for another media spin effort to create a “crisis” environment, in order to propel the FBI and intel officials to jump into “Russian scare mode”.
I’ve written about our domestic SPIN information war so often, that I am sick of it and I know anyone reading my blog must be sick of it too. However, I feel strongly that this SPIN war that is mass media generated repetitive messaging campaigns to manipulate the American people with false information is destroying our political institutions.
This idea of instigating mass media messaging campaigns to fuel mass panic or set the stage to ram through political action is not only corrupt, it’s creating a national security problem. In this Trump-Russia Collusion Clinton/Dem/Media spin effort, Trump wasn’t the only one damaged by fueling wild Trump-Russia spin efforts in the media, by deliberately seeding false stories, America was hurt too. That false “spin narrative” left an America embroiled in ginned up hysteria about “what if we have a Russian agent in the White House”.
I don’t think most of the people in the FBI at the top, even Comey, were involved in some mass conspiracy. I think they were trying to do their jobs, some may have had bias against Trump (which I understand completely, since I find Trump’s conduct appalling and disturbing often too).
Just heard that Mueller is going to speak now – so, I’ll cut this post short. The real crimes were committed by Team Clinton and Dem operatives who concocted this whole FRAUD.
