WASHINGTON, DC: It is little wonder that the Mueller inquisition found that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. They knew all along that it was a hoax. Many of the principal actors in the origins of the Mueller investigation, like Andrew Weissman, were instrumental in framing Trump in the first place. They used the fruit of the poisonous tree to try to destroy Donald Trump and his Presidency.
Andrew Weissmann was the insurance policy
Andrew Weissmann was not only a central figure in incorporating the Steele Dossier in the original FISA warrant on Carter Page. Working hand in hand with Peter Strzok, he was part of the team launching the counterintelligence investigation of Trump.
Weissmann was ultimately the vehicle to implement the “insurance policy” Strzok was texting about.
How convenient that 8 months later, in May of 2017, Robert Mueller chooses Weissmann to lead and staff the Special Counsel investigation of the Russia Hoax. Or that the Inquisition team is full of rabid anti -Trump Democrats. A team who spends the next two years giving a public colonoscopy to President Trump and the far reaches of much of the Trump administration.
Using the Russia hoax to attack Trump
But there is a dirty little secret. The same people behind the initial counterintelligence investigation and the Mueller Inquisition are the same people who conspired with CIA and State Department operatives to concoct and disseminate the phony Steele Dossier in the first place.
The same people who sent a string of CIA and foreign intelligence operatives to set up George Papadopoulos. In a nutshell, the same people who perpetrated the Russia hoax were the ones investigating the Russia Hoax.
John Brennan, James Clapper, Jim Comey, Peter Strzok and Andrew Weissmann knew the Steele dossier was a total fabrication.
Derived from Russian sources close to Putin. Unreliable. Unverified. Kremlin disinformation. A political hit job pushed hard by Brennan and Clapper.
Paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC.
All of it in coordination with many of the players ultimately involved in the investigation.
The fruit of the poisonous tree
But they used it anyway. Because that was the point. They all knew the Russia collusion story was a hoax. They were the ones creating the fiction they would use to destroy Trump.
So they launched the conspiracy onto the American public. Deliberately. With a vengeance. The Liberal cabal lying to the FISA court, the media and all Americans. They put Mike Flynn in their crosshairs. Leaked classified information to the press, including the Steele dossier to Michael Isakof at Yahoo News and David Corn at Mother Jones.
It was the promotion of a narrative to undermine the Republican Presidential candidate as a Russian agent.
So egregious are their actions, that everything that follows that first FISA warrant is the fruit of the poisonous tree. The entire Russia collusion narrative was a total hoax. Every action is the result of an illegal conspiracy.
Every aspect of the Mueller inquisition has the taint of ill-gotten gains. No crime means no obstruction.
Think of the underlying coordinated campaign of leaks and attacks by Brennan, Comey, and Clapper in the months between December 2016 and April 2017. Unmasking and leaking General Flynn’s encounter with the Russian Ambassador. Leaking Presidential phone call transcripts.
Setting up the President with a Steele Dossier briefing and using that as a pretext to leak the contents to the press.
Creating, disseminating, and perpetuating the Russia hoax
The key issue to keep in mind at every point is that Brennan, Comey, Clapper, Strzok, and Weissman knew all along that the Steele dossier was a hoax. But they were covering up bigger crimes. 4 years of unauthorized surveillance on Republicans since 2012 using FISA court 702 authority to access NSA secret databases.
They all knew Joseph Mifsud, officially a so-called Russian agent was actually an Italian intelligence asset. Mifsud also worked with British Intelligence, the FBI, and the CIA. Some Russian agent. But somehow he is the central figure in the Mueller Weissmann report, named as a Russian agent.
It’s a lie. Mifsud was an American asset.
So when the firestorm erupts after Comey is fired. And he leaks classified documents to the New York Times. Then Rod Rosenstein buckles and names a special counsel. The wheels of the coup plotters are now spinning in overtime.
The Russia Hoax: a 22-month public colonoscopy
Weissmann staffs up the entire operation, with Peter Strzok and Lisa Page on board, until the inspector general comes upon their vicious anti-Trump text messages. They are forced out of the Mueller probe quietly in July 2017. We find out about their dismissal and the text messages 5 months later from Inspector general Michael Horowitz.
According to John Dowd, Mueller knew conclusively there was no collusion that same month, in December of 2017. The reality is that every person on the Mueller team knew there was no collusion from the very beginning. They pursued it anyway.
Mueller and Weissman carried on for another 16 months, undermining the President, impacting the 2018 midterms. Hoping the Democrats would win back the Congress.
And then finally the Mueller Weissmann report was issued. I call it that because it was almost certainly written by Andrew Weissmann. And low and behold, even Andrew Weissmann can’t find a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. Of course not. He knew that from day one. They wrap up the origins of the probe in the official Joseph Misfud, Stephan Halper lie.
The Russia Hoax and the damage done
Of course, the damage has been done. Two years of his Presidency have been eviscerated. The greatest political hoax in the history of the Republic has played out. All of it a total sham. But Democrats have still achieved their central cynical objective. To undermine the American President and try to destroy him. Mission accomplished.
Whatever the method. Whatever the cost. Virulent unrelenting McCarthyite attacks and smears for two years. Calling the President a Russian agent. A traitor. Knowing it was a lie all along.
In doing so they have done more harm to America than the Russians could ever do.
Along with the calculated plan to cripple the Trump Presidency, add the failure to clear the President of collusion until after the 2018 midterms. 11 months after Mueller knew it for a fact. Then consider that the Mueller Weissmann report spends 200 pages essentially accusing the President of Obstruction of Justice on 10 separate occasions.
The dishonesty of Andrew Weissmann
This is a classic Andrew Weissmann gambit. Similar to the Arthur Anderson – Enron case the Supreme Court overturned 9-0. (Innocent after Proven Guilty: Supreme Court throws out Arthur-Andersen conviction). Weissmann employing the same tactics Comey’s attorney Patrick FitzGerald used when he targeted and prosecuted Scooter Libbie and Alaska Senator Ted Stevens.
Its the same baseless obstruction of justice claims made in the 200-page operetta that is part two of the Mueller – Weissmann report. And why, after 2 years and 30 million dollars, when he was hired to reach conclusions, did Mueller punt on obstruction and issued a 200 page DNC press release instead.
The late Justice Scalia wrote nine pages of unanimous opinion in the Arthur Anderson case. In that opinion, Judge Scalia specifically says that the intent to obstruct justice was fabricated, a crime that Weissmann, using unsavory and illegal acts, invented. It is a process Weissmann seems to have repeated and perfected with the Mueller inquisition.
Trump committed no underlying crime, and therefore could not have any corrupt intent to obstruct.
He was an innocent man defending himself from a witch hunt.
Bitter fruits: A reckoning is coming
The fruit of the poisonous tree taints everything about this case. That is why William Barr has unflinchingly appointed US Attorney John Durham to look at all the aspects of governmental and intelligence agency abuse involved in the Russia Hoax. The Steele Dossier. How Brennan, Clapper, Comey conspired in an axis of evil.
Open questions are the unmasking activities of Ben Rhodes, Susan Rice, and Samantha Powers. The degree to which Loretta Lynch, John Kerry, and the White House echelon, like Valerie Jarrett, are part of the cabal.
Exactly what did Barack Obama know, and when did he authorize this investigation against Donald Trump?
John Durham successfully prosecuted two corrupt FBI agents in Boston who, in 1967, sent four innocent men to prison for murder. Agents who were also working for mob kingpin Whitey Bulgar as hit men. Those agents are now in prison for life. The men they framed were eventually let go after decades of imprisonment. But not before one had died in prison. (Why Mueller Left Four Innocent People in Jail in the Whitey Bulger Case)
The US Attorney in Boston at the time, the person opposing the release of the knowingly innocent men? None other than Robert Mueller.
Robert Mueller is no saint. Andrew Weissmann is no warrior for justice. The Mueller – Weissmann inquisition is the very definition of the fruit of the poisonous tree. Now the corruption and anti-constitutional activity is being brought into the light by US Attorney John Durham. A Grand Jury has been empaneled.
The fruit of the poisonous tree, as outlined in the Fourth Amendment, is certain to be a bitter one for the coup plotters. But true justice will be a beautiful thing to see, at long last.
