The investigation has been going on for some time. So why now? Why just a week or so prior to elections? Cast and crew are ready and the press has been given talking points…lights curtain….
Martin Marcus over at The American Thinker has posiited an interesting idea in his article titled, “Robert Mueller’s well-timed indictment.” Is it possible that Mueller’s indictment tomorrow is political? (smile) Marcus writes:
Special Counsel Robert Mueller plans to indict someone this week, we are told. Nobody knows whom or for what, but I know why. People suspect that a Trump ally will be indicted for something vaguely related to colluding with the Russian Government. We do not know any more details than that because we just cannot find any crime there. So why is there such a hurry to indict a Republican now?
The key is that the indictment comes in late October. Right before a November election. There is pattern of October indictments against Republicans.
Marcus counts the ways: Sheriff Joe Arpaio on October 25, 2016…October 30, 1992, Former Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger…Senator Ted Stevens was convicted on October 27, 2008 for failing to report gifts. On November 4, 2008, he barely lost re-election. In 2009, Democrat Attorney General Eric Holder learned that prosecutors withheld evidence, sent a key witness away, and possibly allowed another witness to perjure himself. Knowing that Stevens was about to reveal this in court, Holder beat him to it and dismissed the case. Stevens was exonerated, but he still was an ex-Senator and the prosecutors were not punished.
Thomas Lifson, also of The American Thinker also believes there’s choreography going on here:
David Gergen, on Anderson Cooper’s show as the news was breaking, framed the rollout for CNN’s viewers: “It certainly looks like the dam is about to break.”…This political theater is being managed. The conning tower of the Deep State is breaking the surface. … Arrests, with prominent defendants in handcuffs make for great visuals. I think it is a stunt when there is no possibility of a defendant fleeing, but from the same gang that staged a predawn raid on the pajama-clad Manafort household, it is to be expected.
There are serious questions hanging over the process. The announcement of “the first” indictment by CNN is getting a lot of blow back. Clarice Feldman adds reality to the theater aspect of what goes on in DC in The American Thinker:
The aftermath of the 2016 election has revealed the criminality of the Democrats, the perfidy of the Deep State, the corruption of the press, and the bought and paid for motives of the scribblers in the conservative pundit class. And Trump won despite all that. … Fusion GPS’ dossier was a replay of a classic Soviet disinformation campaign. … In much the same way, I believe, Russian agents working for the Clintons and the DNC through Fusion GPS and its hireling Christopher Steele provided fake information in a dossier which the FBI (headed by James Comey) and the Department of Justice (headed by Loretta Lynch ) used to craft an affidavit to obtain a FISA warrant authorizing electronic surveillance on people connected, however tangentially, to the Trump campaign. This, after previous such warrants had — and this is unusual — been turned down by the FISA court. Then-president Obama allowed the surveilled communications to be widely circulated throughout the government, so that the names of the targets caught up in the surveillance and their communications were thus widely available for leaking, and were leaked.
And, in timely fashion, Ed Klein has released his new book, All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump. Included in the book is a report compiled by “the FBI’s field offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit, and New York.” :
The mainstream media’s effort to cast doubt on the existence of the Deep State has been dealt a stunning body blow by an FBI report on rogue elements within the permanent federal bureaucracy. … After conducting 2,000 interviews, the FBI’s field offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit, and New York compiled a 1,400-word report on the Deep State last summer for then-Director James Comey. … “The Bureau has gotten actionable intelligence that there is, within the federal government, a growing and organized movement to block or interfere with administration policy decisions,” the report states.
Radical Democrats today have been enamored with Marx and socialism at least since their college days. Some were born to it as red diaper babies of card carrying communist parents. The deep state has been formed largely through their efforts, capturing compromised elitists of both parties along the way. Seems to be the season for uncovering and exposing the louts. Let the grand theater begin….
