Advantage for Trump.
October surprise is here.
Dems fight the Second.
This is Getting Uglier and Uglier
President Trump on Tuesday said he has “fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents” related to the Russia investigation and the FBI’s investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
“I have fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax. Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions!”
“All Russia Hoax Scandal information was Declassified by me long ago,” Trump tweeted. “Unfortunately for our Country, people have acted very slowly, especially since it is perhaps the biggest political crime in the history of our Country.”
The president’s tweets come after Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified documents that revealed former CIA Director John Brennan briefed former President Obama on Hillary Clinton’s purported “plan” to tie then-candidate Donald Trump to Russia as “a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server” ahead of the 2016 presidential election.
The notes stated:
“We’re getting additional insight into Russian activities from [REDACTED]. CITE [summarizing] alleged approved by Hillary Clinton a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service.”
A referral was sent to James Comey and then-Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok. That memo stated:
“The following information is provided for the exclusive use of your bureau for background investigative action or lead purposes as appropriate.”
“This memorandum contains sensitive information that could be source revealing. It should be handled with particular attention to compartmentation and need-to-know. To avoid the possible compromise of the source, any investigative action taken in response to the information below should be coordinated in advance with Chief Counterintelligence Mission Center, Legal. It may not be used in any legal proceeding—including FISA applications—without prior approval…”
“Per FBI verbal request, CIA provides the below examples of information the CROSSFIRE HURRICANE fusion cell has gleaned to date. An exchange [REDACTED] discussing US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning US presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering US elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.”
Jim Comey was interviewed by the Senate last week. Of course, he didn’t remember anything. How convenient. This whole thing has been a disaster. It has ruined the entire first term of Trump. Wasted tens of millions on an investigation that everyone knew was bullshit. And what was it for? It was to keep power and hide corruption.
This is another reason Biden can’t be President. If Biden becomes President, this investigation will end, especially since Biden and Obama were involved, and there will be no justice. Here’s the reality: someone needs to go to jail for this.
There’s Justice for You
Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple that stood in front of their home over the summer holding firearms as a large group of demonstrators marched by, were indicted on Tuesday on felony weapons and evidence tampering charges.
“Lawyer Joel Schwartz said he was told a grand jury indicted his clients on felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon and evidence tampering,” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. “He said he had no details. A St. Louis court clerk said the indictment was filed Tuesday but that she was not authorized to provide a copy.”
Schwartz said, “I am not surprised that the grand jury indicted them but I’ll certainly be interested in what was presented to the grand jury.”
The couple was each charged by Democrat Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner in July with one felony count of brandishing a firearm.
“The government chooses to persecute us for doing no more than exercising our right to defend ourselves, our home, our property and our family and now we’re getting drug here time after time after time and for what?” Mark McCloskey said on Tuesday. “We didn’t fire a shot. People were violently protesting in front of our house and screaming death threats and threats of rape and threats of arson. Nobody gets charged but we get charged.”
Let’s review the story. The McCloskeys live in a gated community. They had the misfortune to live in the same community as the mayor of St. Louis. So the protestors broke down the gates of the community and started walking to the mayor’s house. At this point, the protestors became rioters. The McCloskeys, afraid of what these people were about, armed themselves and stood outside their house. They were very clumsy with their weapons but they were protecting themselves. The rioters had just pulled out a wrought iron fence (illegal), burned down the city and some were armed. Oh, yeah. And they threatened to enter their house, burn down their house, kill them and kill their dogs. These are charming people.
This couple, who supported Black Lives Matter, now faces four years in prison and the loss of their law licenses. Yes, both the McCloskeys are lawyers. Seems like kind of a steep punishment for just holding their guns against a bunch of rioters.
Now let’s face the fact: these people are not going to get convicted. It’s possible this won’t even see the inside of a court room. This is an unjustifiable prosecution by a partisan prosecutor on a charge that, quite possible, could be unconstitutional. But, that’s the point, isn’t it? Our right don’t matter to the Left. The Second Amendment is part of a system the Left wants to destroy. The McCloskeys are the casualties. Here’s the problem we all need to worry about: we’ll all end up being casualties. It is time to fight this crap. If the McCloskeys put up a donation site, I would donate. So should you.
