The Morning Report - 12/3/19

gumbarr.jpg

Good morning kids. Tuesday and the sham-peachment chronicles get bumped from the lead as our top story is the impending release of DoJ IG Michael Horowitz's report on FISA abuse. In this case, it's the reaction from AG William Barr who reportedly does not concur with Horowitz's findings that the FBI did have enough evidence/information to open up the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump 2016 campaign. This, of course is a complete crock since the players involved, specifically Alexander Downer, Joseph Mifsud and Stephan Halper colluded (heh) to entrap low-level Trump staffer George Papadopoulos with the bait of dirt/e-mails on Hillary Clinton, thereby setting in motion the whole "Russian collusion" narrative.

Well, considering Horowitz's Deep State pedigree we all kind of expected this to be another Comey whitewash. Plus, with Lisa Page now popping up and flapping her gargantuan gums about her innocence, and popping off at Trump for being mean to her about her tacky sexcapades with junior g-man Strzok, it's evident she knows she's in the clear. We also have the execrable bastard Andrew Weissmann, famous for railroading innocent people into multi-decade prison sentences, and the equally slimy Glenn Simpson, whose company Fusion-GPS specializes in manufacturing lies out of whole cloth for the purposes of smearing Leftists' political enemies, suddenly appearing on TV to claim the mantle of champions of justice, in an effort to minimize any damage the investigation might engender, or use as a whitewash to yet again attack Trump.

But, the investigations by Barr and US Attorney John Durham are still ongoing and I don't think either of them is going to sweep this under the rug. Do not let Barr's sort of disarming demeanor fool you; he strikes me as someone with character and a real sense of justice who is determined to get to the bottom of this and see some sort of justice done as well as attempt to clear the sullied name of the law enforcement institutions that he perhaps has or at least had pride in serving in, if that's even possible. Over the past few weeks he has given speeches and made statements that at least give some hope that there is at least one decent person in that nest of lawless tyrants. Now, will we see the likes of Comey, Brennan and Clapper, let alone Clinton and Obama, get perp-walked? I still have serious doubts about that. There is zero doubt in my mind that the latter two were the masterminds of this whole thing. At the very least, they knew about the plot and approved it. The actions of other regime capos like Samantha Power and Susan Rice in the final days of the bunker with all the unmaskings and the finagling of last second CYA e-mails are no less of a tell. All that said, people must be held accountable, and not just some second or third string bureaucrat. If an Obama or a Clinton, or at the very least Comey, Brennan or Clapper were to be indicted, what would that do to our already fractious political environment, which is ironic considering it is them and their political allies that have debased it to this low point in the first place? Perhaps our legal system is as far gone as the nation itself at this point and is beyond resuscitation. In any case, the Democrat-Media Complex will, and in fact is already spinning that these investigations are nothing more than an attempt to distract from Trump's alleged crimes and are abuses of power and persecution of his political enemies. Madness.

The bottom line for me is people have got to swing for this. Plus, the unaccountable and permanent bureaucracies that allowed this and all other depredations and abuses upon we the people have got to be neutralized if not completely dismantled. If not, make no mistake; the next time they gain power it will be us on the wrong end of the rope, figuratively and literally.
