The Morning Report - 10/1/19

Good morning kids. Tuesday and the beat goes on with the Democrats' republic-killing election strategy of impeachment with the parallel goal of using it to bury any revelation of the Bidet Crime Family's corruption, which leads straight to the Clinton-Obama-Intel Community attempt to overthrow the 2016 election.

That said, there are some new wrinkles to these intertwined tales. First, Julie Kelly over at American Greatness warns us that something is rotten in Denmark with this intel community IG Michael Atkinson:

... Atkinson, we are told, is a truth-seeker with no partisan agenda or political grudge. "The intelligence community's chief watchdog, Michael Atkinson, is known to his peers and colleagues as a highly cautious 'straight shooter' who tends to keep his head down," cooed Politico reporter Natasha Bertrand on September 23. One critical period in Atkinson's resume, however, has been overlooked - probably intentionally - by his boosters in the media: His work as a top deputy in the Justice Department in 2016 and 2017 during the very same time that the DOJ was investigating Trump campaign aides and, after the election, incoming administration officials. Atkinson worked directly for two figures involved in both the counterintelligence probe into the Trump campaign and the set-up of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn...

... Another red flag is that Atkinson sent two letters about the "whistleblower" to the House Intelligence committee instead of its Senate counterpart. During his January 2018 public testimony to the Senate Intelligence committee prior to his confirmation, Atkinson said if there was a dispute with the Director of National Intelligence about the veracity of a claim, he would "talk to this Committee if that situation arose to that level, to keep you informed about those events."

But Atkinson instead notified the highly-partisan House Intelligence committee led by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the same lawmaker who has lied to the American people for three years about evidence of Russian collusion. In a letter dated September 9 addressed to Schiff and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), Atkinson alerted the committee that the acting Director of National Intelligence did not agree with Atkinson's judgment that the claim was an "urgent concern" (An assessment somewhat laughable now that the call's transcript is public)...

... Subsequently, Atkinson sent another letter to Schiff and Nunes on September 17, which is best described as the IG tattling on the acting director for not responding the way Atkinson wanted him to respond.

Republicans should be raising several questions about Atkinson: Was he aware of or in any way involved in the Justice Department's investigation into the Trump campaign? Did he handle the FISA warrant against Carter Page? Did he know about the FISA on Page prior to April 2017? Did he meet with Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page or any of the collusion conspirators in 2016 or 2017? Was he aware of or involved in [FBI National Security Division Chief Mary] McCord's dealings with the White House regarding Michael Flynn?...

Sorry for the beefy pull-quote but you should read the whole thing. In any case just reading not only connections between Atkinson and the original coup plotters but his subsequent actions involving this Ukraine bullshit, and I don't have to read any further to remove any doubt that this is just more of the same.

Next up, surprise surprise! Looks like Schiff-for-Brains himself might have actual ties to a think tank backed by Hunter Bidet's "ex-employer" Burisma Holdings. By the way, I refer you to the article either yesterday or Friday with half-artichoke/half-gin blossom Bill Weld and his ties to Mueller, Whitey Bulger, John Kerry's stepson and Bidet the Lesser and their collective involvement in Ukrainian corrupt politicians and businesses.

Last, and most disgusting and/or stupid is Mitch McConnell now saying that if the House votes to impeach the President, the Senate has no choice but to hold the trial. How about you and the rest of the saggy, flabby duplicitous jag-offs of the GOP-e taking to the microphones to denounce what the Democrats are doing instead of dignifying an extension of the greatest political crime in American history? No, of course not because, bipartisanship. Feh.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.
