WASHINGTON. It should be obvious by now that President Trump is not your typical Republican. That’s because he relishes a good fight. A character trait that takes a sturdy backbone. A structural component sorely lacking in today’s GOP lawmakers.
Justice Department sources informed Fox News that Attorney General William Barr has assembled a “team” to investigate the origins of the Trump/Russia collusion hoax. A move that could presage the appointment of a special counsel.
An honest Attorney General
Barr has acquitted himself honorably in the wake of the nearly two-year recusal by his predecessor, Jeff Sessions. A man who sheepishly announced he would have no comment regarding the findings contained in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation.
Once a cowardly recuser, always a cowardly recuser.
A traitorous accusation of treason
Democrats and their media comrades refuse to accept Mueller’s conclusions that no evidence exists to support the absurd charge that President Trump is a traitorous spy working on behalf of Moscow. Or that he attempted to obstruct the Justice Department’s long witch hunt into the Russia matter.
The mainstream media simply pretend, like congressional Democrats, that the Russia hoax still has legs. Therefore, the best strategy for the Trump administration is to investigate and expose Russia hoaxers before the 2020 presidential election.
A spy by any other name
To that end, Attorney General Barr ignited a firestorm by stating an irrefutable fact in testimony before Congress regarding the Obama administration’s “counterintelligence” operations against the 2016 Republican presidential campaign:
“I think spying did occur… I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal… I’m not talking about the FBI necessarily, but intelligence agencies more broadly…. I feel I have an obligation to make sure that government power is not abused. I think that is one of the principal roles of the attorney general.”
Barr’s conclusions are reasonable considering congressional Democrats, US intelligence services, and the mainstream media sought to use the charge of Russia collusion as a pretext to remove a duly elected president from office by means of impeachment. Add to this the threat of Trump’s criminal prosecution once he was removed from office, and the seriousness of the last two years comes into stark focus.
A traitor’s lament
President Obama’s former CIA Director John Brennan told MSNBC he was “very disappointed in what Attorney General Bill Barr said.” He insisted all that spying by the Obama administration was merely an “investigation.”
The Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, even suggests an investigation into the origins of the Russia hoax is a threat to American democracy:
“The casual suggestion by the nation’s top law enforcement officer of ‘spying’ may please Donald Trump, who rails against a ‘deep state coup,’ but it strikes another destructive blow to our democratic institutions. The hardworking men and women at the DOJ and FBI deserve better.”
Our new election monitors?
Deep State thralls supposedly swear an oath to defend the US Constitution. They are not elected nor do they exist to grant legitimacy to those who are. In short, they do not exist to devise “insurance policies” to thwart the will of the American electorate.
Pinning the tail on the treasonous donkey
Speaking to Fox host Sean Hannity, President Trump gave the Russia hoax its true name, bluntly summarizing its purpose:
“We can never allow… these treasonous acts to happen to another president. This was an attempted takeover of our government, of our country, an illegal takeover.”
President Trump is right. And Attorney General William Barr should waste no time launching an exhaustive, forensic hunt for the traitorous attempted coup leaders – the true enemies of the American republic.
And one of them may very well be a former Democratic president whose last name begins with O.
