Elder Patriot -Schadenfreude must not come close to the satisfaction Donald Trump is feeling today. The Republicans on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) are sitting on bombshell evidence that not only didn’t Donald Trump violate any laws but that the Democrats did.
Many, many felonies were committed by many, many Democrats. And Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats unanimously defended them. Their arrogance literally knew no bounds.
For Trump, who quickly learned that politics is a no-holds barred, winner-take-all death match, the fact that proof now exists that many of those who committed serious violations of federal law were positioned inside the FBI and the Department of Justice only adds to the sweetness of this moment.
These violations were written into a summary form by the HPSCI that filled four pages and has become known simply as the “memo.”
The memo reportedly chronicles all of the laws that were broken to justify the appointment of Robert Mueller with orders to destroy the Trump Presidency.
Democrats on the HPSCI immediately recognized the potential devastation the memo would reek on their party and moved to block its release.
Rep. Steve King has read the memo. He didn’t mince any words with his tweet:
The hashtag #alwaysHillary suggests that the memo also contains evidence that the FBI and DOJ were not simply breaking laws to subvert Donald Trump but also broke federal laws to protect Hillary Clinton.
If that’s true, the memo must cite the FBI’s gross mishandling of depositions, evidence collection and destruction, and the granting of immunity like it was handing out candy, that surpassed even the gross negligence standard.
HPSCI Chairman Devin Nunes and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy were so appalled by the contents of the memo that they have taken steps to make sure the American people see it as soon as possible.
This has the high level officials at the FBI and DOJ who perpetrated this criminal use of their powers in frenzied panic.
Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote to Nunes’ committee practically begging him to squash the memo:
“We believe it would be extraordinarily reckless for the Committee to disclose such information publicly without giving the Department and the FBI the opportunity to review the memorandum and to advise the HPSCI of the risk of harm to national security and to ongoing investigations that could come from public release.”
Pardon me while I stop laughing. Have they no shame? They know exactly what’s in that memo. At this point do you have any doubt Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the HPSCI who leaks so badly that he buys Depends by the truckload, hasn’t already told his co-conspirators inside the DOJ everything?
The only harm that could result from releasing the memo would be the daylight being shed on their criminal corruption of our jurisprudence system. Oh, and that the memo will show Democrats can no longer be trusted.
Once the HPSCI votes to release the memo it passes to the president who can order its immediate release.
Trump has withstood a battering of false charges, leaks, and attacks on his associates and family by persons inside the FBI, the DOJ, and Robert Mueller. A lesser man would’ve wilted by now.
Now the president has made it known through channels that he wants the memo released. The President’s desire was relayed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions by Trump’s Chief-of-Staff John Kelly last Wednesday.
A senior administration official speaking on the condition of anonymity said that the president “is inclined to have that [memo] released just because it will shed light. Apparently all the rumors are that it will shed light, it will help the investigators come to a conclusion.”
Of course that’s the president in Trump speaking. The street fighter inside Donald Trump is chomping at the bit to publicly bitch slap and shame those who used their authority to illegally corrupt the FBI and DOJ in order to destroy him.
If what we are hearing from members of the HPSCI and President Trump is accurate we might see the committee vote to release the memo as early as tomorrow.
That would provide the president’s speechwriters time to incorporate the contents of the memo into his State of the Union speech on Tuesday.
That would give the memo immediate and maximum exposure.
The sad fact is Trump either purges the DOJ and FBI of its Deep State operatives and Obama holdover loyalists, or they will eventually find a way purge him.
His opponents have been illegally spying on and investigating him for almost two years and are yet to lay a glove on him. Let’s see how they stand up to similar scrutiny.
