The list of traitors is long and distinguished!

Yes, “distinguished” in that they are all infamous.

Benedict Arnold.

James Comey.

John Brennan.

James Clapper.

Robert Mueller.

Peter Strzok.

Lisa Page.

Barack Obama.

Joe Biden.

Hillary Clinton.

Sally Yates.

Andrew McCabe.

Loretta Lynch.

Susan Rice.

Kathryn Ruemmler (Obama’s White House lawyer).

Bruce Ohr.

Nellie Ohr.

Rod Rosenstein.

Adam Schiff.

Jerrold Nadler.

“Which of these things is not like the others?”

“Which of these things just doesn’t belong?”

“Can you tell which thing is not like the others, by the time I finish my song?”

I’m sorry, because this is actually a trick question.

The correct answer is “no one on the list doesn’t belong!”

They all belong, because they’re all treasonous vermin!

And they all had many accessories along the way as well.

Not mention the lying, complicit, fake news, liberal propaganda, mainstream media.   

Actually, a case could be made that Benedict Arnold “doesn’t belong,” because he was the only one who wasn’t involved in spying on the Trump campaign, spying on President Trump while in office, and attempting to undermine and overthrow a duly elected president.

They have disgraced their names, their families, and their country forever.

Shame on them all.

If there is any justice, they should all be brought to justice.

TREASON!

With all of the unbelievable evidence being unearthed as a result of the General Flynn debacle, and the release of previously suppressed depositions regarding Russian Collusion investigations, and the illegal FISA warrant applications, and the coordinated coup attempt by numerous democrats and numerous democrat “deep state” scum, assisted by their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda fake news media…, there is no longer ANY question about their TREASONOUS behavior.

ahomage 20

And make no mistake about it…, we are definitely talking about TREASON against The United States of America and its citizens.

TREASON is defined as follows: “In law, treason is criminal disloyalty, typically to the state. It is a crime that covers some of the more extreme acts against one’s nation or sovereign. This usually includes things such as participating in a war against one’s native country, attempting to overthrow its government, spying on its military, its diplomats, or its secret services for a hostile and foreign power, or attempting to kill its head of state. A person who commits treason is known in law as a traitor.”

Furthermore, according to 18 U.S. Code § 2381 regarding Treason: “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

I, personally, would be just fine seeing these traitors walked out in front of a firing squad and shot.  That punishment may seem a bit extreme, but consider the crime(s).

Their actions have gone WAY beyond any kind of political gamesmanship.

Their actions had the intention of removing a duly elected president of These United States by ANY means necessary.  Illegal means, fraudulent means, unconstitutional means, or any other kind of dubious means.

Yes…, their actions went WAY beyond any kind of political gamesmanship.  These democrats and “deep state” democrats clearly, unmistakingly, and unapologetically, crossed the line into the disgraceful world of HIGH TREASON and TRAITOROUS behavior.

I pray that they all face justice and pay dearly for their crimes.

Here is an homage of memes I have put together regarding this collection of treasonous vermin.

The FBI and DOJ “chickens” are coming home to roost.

aflynn

Yes folks…, we’ve all heard of a chicken coop.  What we have here is a chicken coup!

A “coup d’état” that is!

aflynn 5

I have written many blogs dealing with “the swamp” and “the deep state…,” but the extent of this unholy cabal, as I am coming to understand it, is far worse than I could have ever imagined.

More concerning is the fact that “the deep state” isn’t all that deep, or hidden.  It turns out “the deep state” is really those bureaucrats, and it’s the majority of them, aligned with the democrat party.  That’s all.

aflynn 20

The FBI is full of these treasonous rats.

So is the DOJ.

So is the whole, federal, bureaucratic mess.

It’s absolutely disgusting.

aflynn 23

The process of “draining the swamp” is no small task.

aflynn 16

We witnessed a long parade of “swamp rats” trotted out during the fraudulent impeachment circus.

People often wonder how the German people capitulated to the horrible whims of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party.

Well, here you go.

First you have to assemble a group of like-minded people to help you carry out your plans and help to steer the corrupt “ship of state.”

These directors make and enforce “the rules.”  Their followers are “the tools” and the rest are “the fools.”

For the Nazi Party it was people like Heinrich Himmler (SS Commander), Hermann Göring (Hitler’s righthand man and chosen successor), Joseph Goebbels (News media propaganda Minister), Martin Bormann (Hitler’s Chief of Staff), and the list goes on.

For today’s Democrat Party, those people would equate to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, James Comey, James Brennan, James Clapper, Eric Holder, Susan Rice, Andrew McCabe, Christopher Wray, Rod Rosenstein, Peter Strzok, et al.

aflynn 19

If you don’t go along with their way of thinking, you are attacked by the media and labeled a traitor, a racist, a sexist, an idiot, etc.

aflynn 27

You may then be harassed by an arm of “their government” and potentially framed, ruined financially by “their government,” and even possibly imprisoned, ala exactly what has happened to General Flynn, along with many others in the democrats’ attempt to take down President Trump.

aflynn 8

According to Charles Creitz of Fox News, “Sean Hannity opened Wednesday’s edition of [his nightly show] ‘Hannity’ by declaring that former National Security Adviser [General] Michael Flynn was ‘unfairly and unjustly targeted by deep state bureaucrats’ after a bombshell [collection] of documents was unsealed in the case.”

My first questions would be why were these documents sealed and who sealed them in the first place?

Who had access to them?

Who had access to them, and undoubtedly knew they exonerated General Flynn, and did nothing?

Who had access to them, and undoubtedly knew they exonerated General Flynn. while unmasking the FBI and the DOJ as renegade and treasonous’ “deep state” entities, and did nothing?

“The Justice Department turned over the documents just this week, even though a February 2018 standing order in the case from United States District Court for the District of Columbia Emmet Sullivan required the government to turn over any exculpatory materials in its possession that pertained to Flynn. Fox News is told even more exculpatory documents are forthcoming, as Attorney General Bill Barr continues to oversee the DOJ’s investigation into the handling of the Flynn case,” according to Gregg Re.

What was the DOJ and William Barr waiting for? That standing order to turn over documents dates back over two years ago!

Two years ago!

I would expect this type of indifference regarding the law from the Clintons…, but The Department of Justice?!

aflynn 18

That’s why the jury is still currently out on Attorney General William and his underlings.

We’ll see about him and his quite shortly, and what their true colors are.

Our current FBI Director Christopher Wray is another story, however.

There can be no doubt that Christopher Wray has played a part in the effort to cover-up all of the FBI’s treasonous activities…, thus making him a treasonous co-conspirator in all of this.

aflynn 3

‘“Corrupt agents from Jim Comey’s FBI were discussing strategies on how to set General Flynn up on what we call a perjury trap,’ Hannity said, later adding, ‘truth be told, it was an ambush. It was an illegal, abuse of power, corrupt ambush.’”

aflynn 7

‘“According to one handwritten note, an unnamed agent asked, “Well, what is our goal here? … Is it truth, admission or to get him to lie?” To get him to lie, is that our goal? So we can prosecute him or get him fired? Is that the FBI’s role?’ the host continued.”

Gregg Re of Fox News reports that, “The handwritten notes — written by the FBI’s former head of counterintelligence Bill Priestap after a meeting with then-FBI Director James Comey and then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Fox News is told — further suggested that agents planned in the alternative to get Flynn ‘to admit to breaking the Logan Act’ when he spoke to then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition period.”

aflynn 4

“The handwritten notes are devastating evidence of an effort to disregard all standing protocols and rules, Sidney Powell said.”

“Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley called the document’s implications ‘chilling.’”

Charles Creitz continues, ‘“Ultimately that perjury trap was not a success,’ Hannity went on. ‘Agents saw no indication at all that the national security adviser was lying. They didn’t believe he was lying. They said they didn’t believe he was lying.’”

“Nevertheless, the host claimed, then-FBI Director James Comey tried to ‘exploit the chaos’ inside the then-transitioning Trump White House team to get to Flynn, which Hannity added was something Comey would never do to Barack Obama or George W. Bush.”

“Hannity went on to claim that Comey, thus emboldened, ‘turned the screws’ on Flynn by threatening to lock him up and then threatening to prosecute his son, Michael Flynn, Jr.”

‘“They were hell-bent on punishing anyone and everyone inside the Trump administration,’ he said.”

Former President Barack Obama’s name rarely surfaces in all of these discussions about treason and crimes at the highest levels, but his name should be raised and he should be held accountable as well.

Obama

aflynn 13

aflynn 12

aflynn 28

Gregg Re reminds us that, “Former President Obama personally had warned the Trump administration against hiring Flynn, and made clear he was ‘not a fan,’ according to multiple officials. Obama fired Flynn as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014.”

So, President Obama told President Trump he wasn’t “a fan” of General Flynn, huh?

No wonder why President Trump brought Flynn on board!

“One of Flynn’s interviewing agents was Peter Strzok, who has since been fired from the bureau after his anti-Trump text messages [with Lisa Page] came to light.”

aflynn 22

“Flynn has sought to withdraw his guilty plea and has been seeking exoneration, saying the FBI engaged in ‘egregious misconduct.’ Flynn, who has said more recently that he did not lie to the FBI, pleaded guilty in late 2017 as mounting legal fees pushed him to sell his home.”

“Flynn has since obtained new counsel — and his old attorneys, it emerged this week, then failed to turn over thousands of documents to his new lawyer, Sidney Powell. Powell has maintained that Flynn’s old lawyers at Covington & Burling had conflicts of interest and were otherwise ineffective, including by not focusing on Strzok’s evident bias.”

Flynn’s “old attorneys,” Covington and Burling LLP, were obviously wolves in sheep’s clothing, as far as Flynn’s defense was concerned.  With “friends” like that, who needs enemies?  Covington and Burling LLP were undoubtedly deep state “tools” in this case, and they should be disbarred, honestly.

Sara Carter also brought to light that, “Last week, another batch of documents withheld by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team on Flynn was turned over to his defense that allegedly reveals that the retired three-star general did not commit any crimes, as suggested by Department of Justice prosecutors.”

Well, there’s NO doubt that Mueller and his team are another collection of “tools.”

‘“It’s just absolutely appalling what these agents, and then special counsel operatives, did to General Flynn,’ Powell told Fox News’ ‘Hannity’ on Wednesday night. ‘It’s abuse of their authority at every turn.’”

“[Andrew] McCabe, who has admitted to lying to FBI investigators in a leak investigation, was fired for multiple violations of the FBI’s ethics code.”

“He has not faced any criminal charges.”

Next time you’re interviewed by the FBI, try lying to them and sees what happens to you.

“The Flynn revelations come as the Justice Department separately has revealed that the FBI’s investigation into former Trump aide Carter Page was riddled with fatal errors — and even featured an ex-FBI attorney deliberately doctoring an email from the CIA to make it seem as though Page’s Russian contacts were nefarious.”

“In fact, Carter Page was an informant to the CIA about those contacts — a key detail the FBI omitted when it told the surveillance court about Page’s overseas trips.”

“For his part, after years of legal setbacks and sustained attacks on his patriotism, Flynn took a moment to savor the day’s news on social media. He tweeted a video late Wednesday showing a slow pan to a waving American flag, with no audio but the wind.”

In case you’re not really too familiar with General Flynn…, here’s a little bit about him.

aflynn 28

Michael Flynn was born December 24, 1958, on Christmas Eve!  He is a retired United States Army Lieutenant General (3 star general) who was briefly the National Security Advisor to President Donald Trump.

General Flynn’s military career included a key role in shaping U.S. counter-terrorism strategy and dismantling insurgent networks in Afghanistan and Iraq.  He served as the 18th Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, serving from July 2012 until his retirement from the military in August 2014. He became a senior advisor to Trump during his presidential campaign and served as the National Security Advisor from January 23 to February 13, 2017.

General Flynn was preceded as the National Security Advisor by the ever “swampy” Susan “I never met a lie too big to tell” Rice.

Flynn resigned after information surfaced that he had [allegedly] misled the FBI and Vice President Mike Pence about the nature and content of his communications with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.

Flynn was commissioned in the U.S. Army as a second lieutenant in military intelligence in 1981. His military assignments included multiple tours at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, with the 82nd Airborne Division and Joint Special Operations Command. He also served with the 25th Infantry Division in Hawaii, at the Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, Louisiana, and the Army Intelligence Center at Fort Huachuca, Arizona.

Flynn served as the director of intelligence at the Joint Task Force in Afghanistan (Operation Enduring Freedom) and the Iraq War (Operation Iraqi Freedom).

General Flynn was asked in February 2016 to serve as an adviser to the Trump campaign.

As one of the keynote speakers during the first night of the 2016 Republican National Convention, Flynn gave what the Los Angeles Times described as a “fiery” speech, in which he stated: “We are tired of Obama’s empty speeches and his misguided rhetoric. This has caused the world to have no respect for America’s word, nor does it fear our might.” He accused Obama of enabling the Islamic State at the time.  Flynn went on to criticize political correctness and joined the crowd in a chant of “U-S-A! U-S-A!”

During the speech, Flynn launched a blistering attack on Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton. He led the crowd in chants of “Lock her up!”  He called for Clinton to withdraw from the race, saying that “if I did a tenth of what she did, I’d be in jail today.” He repeated in subsequent interviews that she should be “locked up.”

aflynn 11

The Washington Post has predictably come to “the swamp’s” defense and declared, “No, Michael Flynn wasn’t ‘set up,’” in an opinion piece by Randall D. Eliason.

aflynn1a

And who is Randall Eliason?

According to his bio at American University, in Washington D.C., where he is currently an adjunct professor, Eliason spent over 20 years as an Assistant United States Attorney and as a Chief of that section, for the District of Columbia.

Interestingly enough, Eliason is the recipient of numerous awards and commendations from the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Hmmm.

He is also a frequent media commentator on PBS, NBC, NPR, CNN and MSNBC.

Can anyone say “liberal propaganda, fake news?”

Basically, Eliason can be classified as “a tool.”

So, what’s the bottom line here?

The bottom line here is that the Obama administration, the FBI and the DOJ took the law into their own hands in an attempt to break General Flynn as a part of their effort to undo the 2016 election and Donald Trump’s presidency.

Like I said before…, the absolute bottom line here is treason against The United States of America and the American people…, and if nobody goes to jail for any of this, then “the deep state” are really the ones running the show, and our country is in serious trouble.

For “The Deep State,” an apology seems to be a “get out of jail free card!” 

Yes…, for “The Deep State,” democrats and liberals in general, a disingenuous apology seems to be a “get out of jail free card!”

adoj 1

At least in their eyes, the eyes of their “Deep State” comrades, and the eyes of their propagandistic fake news media conspirators.

An apology, of course, is only begrudgingly performed when the evidence against the “swamp rat” in question is SO overwhelming that the preferred strategy of lying, denying and pleading ignorance cannot be employed.

Republicans, conservatives, and all the rest of the law-abiding peons, however, are expected to operate under the laws as they were written, and receive punishment accordingly.

adoj 2

Case in point…, an article by Ronn Blitzer of Fox News, titled, “DOJ recommends maximum sentence for former GOP Representative.”

You will NEVER see or hear the words “DOJ recommends maximum sentence” before any liberal bureaucrat’s name or any liberal politician’s name.

In this case, ‘“The Government believes that a sentence at the top end of the Guidelines range is necessary in order to satisfy the objectives of Title 18 United States Code, Section 3553(a), and in particular to promote respect for the law, to provide just punishment for the offense, and to achieve general deterrence,’ prosecutors with the Southern District of New York said in a letter to U.S. District Court Judge Vernon S. Broderick.”

So in other words, they’re saying that there are cases where you don’t need to “promote respect for the law,” “provide just punishment,” and “achieve general deterrence?”

It seems like that’s what they’re saying.

adoj 8

And in fact, we’ve seen many cases where our “justice” system IS NOT promoting respect for the law, IS NOT providing just punishment, and IS NOT achieving general deterrence…, especially where liberal bureaucrats and liberal politicians are concerned.

Do the names Lois Lerner, Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Rod Rosenstein, James Clapper, John Brennan, Andrew McCabe, and James Comey ring a bell?

adoj 7

adoj 9

adoj 6

Another such case is the case of Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards, a former top Treasury Department official.

When someone is using three last names, that’s a good tip-off that we are dealing with someone who is extra pathetically liberal.

adoj 5

According to Gregg Re of Fox News, “A former top Treasury Department official pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy for leaking confidential banking reports associated with members of the Trump campaign, following her dramatic arrest in October 2018 as she toted a flash drive full of sensitive documents.”

“Natalie Edwards, 41, entered the plea in Manhattan federal court, where U.S. District Judge Gregory H. Woods set sentencing for June 9. Although the conspiracy charge carried a potential penalty of up to five years in prison, Edwards signed a plea deal with prosecutors that recommended a potential prison sentence of zero to six months.”

A plea deal you say?

What exactly is she pleaing?

She doesn’t seem to have much leverage here.

She must be pleaing that her special liberal privilege be recognized.

“Edwards was a senior adviser at Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, also known as FinCEN. Prosecutors said her crime began in October 2017 and continued for a year, with Edwards sending a BuzzFeed News reporter numerous Suspicious Activity Reports (“SARs”).

Oh…, she was a senior adviser at Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network!

Beautiful!

She should be held to an even higher standard here then.

“As law enforcement swooped in, she was carrying a government-issued USB flash drive containing not only thousands of SARs, but also ‘highly sensitive material relating to Russia, Iran, and the terrorist group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant,’ prosecutors said.”

Am I just stupid or does this seem like a pretty serious crime?

‘“I am sorry for what I have done and I apologize to you, your honor, and the court,’ Edwards said.”

THERE IT IS!

She played her “get out of jail free card” apology!

Also notice she’s apologizing to the judge and the court and not to the victims of her crime, her department, or the American people.

“Her arrest came on the heels of other high-profile, leak-related prosecutions under the Trump administration, which had pledged to go on the offensive against leakers whom the president has called ‘traitors and cowards.’”

Exactly, Mr. President.  I would classify her as a coward and a traitor as well.

Traitors should not receive bogus plea deals.

In another case, we have the F.B.I. (Director, Christopher Wray) apologizing to the Court for “botching surveillance of a Trump adviser,” and “pledging to fix their [the F.B.I.’s] procedures.”

According to Charlie Savage of The New York Times, “The F.B.I. acknowledged serious errors and omissions in the facts it put forward for wiretap applications targeting a former Trump campaign adviser.”

“[The] F.B.I. told a secretive court on Friday that it was increasing training and oversight for officials who work on national security wiretap applications in response to problems uncovered by a scathing inspector general report last month about botched surveillance targeting a former Trump campaign adviser.”

“A secretive court?”

What exactly is a “secretive court?”

I’m guessing “secretive” means “rigged” in this instance.

‘“The F.B.I. has the utmost respect for this court and deeply regrets the errors and omission identified by’ the inspector general, wrote the F.B.I. director, Christopher A. Wray, in a statement included with the filing. He called the conduct described by the report “unacceptable and unrepresentative of the F.B.I. as an institution.’”

Senate FBI Director

I’m sure you are very appreciative of this liberal leaning court, rigged in your favor, Mr. Wray…, and Oh…, THERE IT IS…, he played their “get out of jail free card” apology!

Excuse me Mr. Wray…, but you are so full of sh#t I can smell you a million miles away.

Believe me my friends…, these “Deep Staters” have no respect for their employer, the American people, and they think we are all idiots who will continue to keep falling for this crap.

Well…, it’s a new day Mr. Wray.

Our eyes are wide open now, and we recognize you people for what you are…, enemies of our country, and enemies of “We The People.”

“Under FISA — a law for surveillance aimed at monitoring suspected spies and terrorists, as opposed to ordinary criminals — the government must convince a judge that an American is probably an agent of a foreign power. Because the FISA court hears only from the government, and what it says is never shown to defense lawyers, the Justice Department says it has a duty to be candid and tell judges every relevant fact in its possession.”

Oh, sure, why wouldn’t we believe that would happen?!

“But the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, uncovered that the F.B.I. had cherry-picked and misstated evidence about the Trump adviser, Carter Page, when seeking permission to wiretap him in October 2016 and in 2017 renewal applications.”

In all there were 17 “serious errors and omissions in the facts” regarding the FISA warrant applications.

17!!!

That, Mr. Wray, raises the bar here from extreme incompetence to a treasonous disregard and manipulation of the law.

We are all painfully aware of our two-tiered justice system…, us being on the lower tier.

Apologies are not going to suffice here.

Our last hope of seeing any justice served, at least for a while, is U.S. Attorney John Durham and his investigation into all of this FISA stuff.

His report should be submitted to Attorney General Barr before this summer.., hopefully along with his recommendation of criminal charges for more than a few of these treasonous individuals.

I’ll be very disappointed if we just continue to see more of the same…, more apologies and more “get out of jail free cards.”

I’ll keep you posted.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein isn’t good at much…, except saving his own a$$!

…at least for the moment.

According to Nicole Darrah and John Roberts for Fox News, “Former Arkansas Republican Governor Mike Huckabee says Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s critical comments [about] the Russia election interference investigation [and of the Obama administration for their handling of the Russia investigation] is a soft way of saying there was a cover up.”

“Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who frequently found himself in the political crosshairs due to his role in the special counsel’s Russia probe and whose departure has long been expected, submitted his resignation on Monday to President Trump, effective May 11.”

rosenstein 7

“Attorney General William Barr in a statement said Rosenstein served the Justice Department ‘with dedication and distinction.’”

Ugh.  I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

‘“His devotion to the Department and its professionals is unparalleled,’ the statement read. ‘Over the course of his distinguished government career, he has navigated many challenging situations with strength, grace, and good humor.’”

Ahhhhh!  Ok…, that did it…, now I just hurled all over my keyboard!

What is Barr talking about?!

I’m confused.

At times it seems that Attorney General Barr is a pretty “straight shooter,” but then he comes out with this junk regarding Rod Rosenstein, and puts himself back into the “political hack” category.

Let’s just quickly review Mr. Rosenstein’s “distinguished” actions.

Rod Rosenstein was implicated in the FBI surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign in, recently released, declassified memos.

rosenstein 4

Rosenstein was responsible for at least one questionable surveillance warrant (FISA) application, which he signed, knowing full well that information supporting the application was obtained from a partisan anti-Trump dossier funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democrat Party.

According to Saagar Enjeti, a White House Correspondent for The Daily Caller, “President Donald Trump agreed that alleged discussions of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein invoking the 25th Amendment in the days after the firing of former FBI Director James Comey constituted an illegal coup attempt in a Monday morning tweet.”

rosenstein 6

‘“This was an illegal coup attempt on the President of the United States. Dan Bongino on @foxandfriends True! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 18, 2019,’”

“Trump quoted from a Fox and Friends segment by conservative commentator Dan Bongino who reacted to a Sunday night broadcast interview of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe on CBSNews’ 60 minutes.”

‘“60 Minutes Moment of the Week: Former FBI acting director McCabe says Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein raised the idea of removing President Trump via the 25th Amendment. https://t.co/wkC4AKxGiC pic.twitter.com/UkOb4QbrZh

— 60 Minutes (@60Minutes) February 18, 2019’”

“McCabe detailed two occasions in which Rosenstein raised the prospect of using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office and even suggested that two cabinet officials would be willing to involve themselves in the scheme.”

The 25th Amendment allows for the removal of the President of the United States if a majority of his Senate-confirmed cabinet believe he is no longer capable of discharging his duties while in office.

“Rosenstein’s discussion of wearing a wire and talk of the 25th Amendment was first reported by The New York Times in September 2018.”

“McCabe also alleges that Rosenstein suggested in a meeting that he would wear a wire into the Oval Office in meetings with Trump. The former FBI deputy director told ‘60 minutes’ in an interview that he took Rosenstein’s suggestion so seriously that he brought the idea up to FBI lawyers who waved off his suggestion.”

“The original New York Times report of Rosenstein’s discussion of wearing a wire into the Oval Office and invoking the 25th Amendment nearly prompted his ouster in September 2018. Trump, however, appeared to accept Rosenstein’s explanation at that the report was exaggerated or not true, and the deputy attorney general was allowed to keep his job.”

“The president changed his tune on Twitter Monday morning, however, indicating he now believes the reports.”

‘“Wow, so many lies by now disgraced acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. He was fired for lying, and now his story gets even more deranged. He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught…..

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)’”

rosenstein 1

Rosenstein also took over the Russia investigation after then AG Jeff Sessions recused himself from the investigation.  It was Rosenstein who later appointed Mueller to his post and got the whole “Russian collusion” and President Trump “witch hunt” rolling.

Quite a “distinctive” and “dedicated” career, huh?

William Barr said “His [Rosenstein’s] devotion to the Department and its professionals is unparalleled…”

I would say that his “devotion” was to “the swamp,” and the rest of his treasonous cohorts…, not the Department of Justice.

On his way out, Rosenstein has even defended Attorney General Bill Barr’s handling of the Mueller report.

Also, “Rosenstein was part of a small group of [Justice] department officials who reviewed the document [the Mueller Report] and helped shape its public release. After Mueller didn’t reach a conclusion on whether Trump had obstructed the investigation, Barr and Rosenstein stepped in and determined the evidence wasn’t enough to support such an allegation.”

“In his resignation letter, Rosenstein thanked Trump ‘for the opportunity to serve; for the courtesy and humor you often display in our personal conversations; and for the goals you set in your inaugural address: patriotism, unity, safety, education, and prosperity, because a nation exists to serve its citizens.’”

Oh, oh…, I’m starting to feel a little sick to my stomach again!

“…because a nation exists to serve its citizens,” huh?

And “swampy” federal employees, like yourself, exist to serve themselves and “the swamp.”

rosenstein 3

Rosenstein’s picture should be in the dictionary next to “slimy swamp monster.”

rosenstein 2

I’m glad to see Rosenstein go for now, but hopefully we’ll see him again in the not too distant future, giving up some his cohorts to again save his slimy, treasonous a$$!

Former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is a treasonous weasel among treasonous weasels!

Yes…, former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is a treasonous weasel, and so are all of the rest of his partners in crime from Obama’s DOJ and Obama’s FBI.

All of these vermin in this “swampy” nest of rats should be in jail in my opinion, and they still may end up there.

Catherine Herridge, Chief Intelligence Correspondent for Fox News, reported that, “Former FBI acting Director McCabe says the DOJ discussed removing President Trump under the 25th Amendment.”

Wait…, say what?!

“THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE DISCUSSED REMOVING NEWLY ELECTED PRESIDENT TRUMP FROM OFFICE!”

And no one in the “biased, liberal, fake news media” feels this is worth reporting at all.

If you regularly watch NBC, ABC, MSNBC or CNN you would not be aware of any of this because they all have chosen to ignore it.  Propaganda by omission.

Now take a minute to think about the reporting that would have resulted if the same type of efforts had been directed at former President Obama after he was duly elected.

That is what we call the “biased, liberal, fake news media.”

Michael Goodwin, of the New York Post, added, “McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016.”

“There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department played in spying on the Trump campaign and leaks of classified information for partisan purposes.”

“In short, what is arguably the greatest scandal in the history of America remains mostly hidden from the public.  That shroud of secrecy piles one scandal on top of another.”

This was undoubtedly an unprecedented plot to swing an election and later to remove the duly-elected president.

Andy “poor little angel” McCabe is talking because he’s peddling a book and, just like “Leakin’ and Lyin’” James Comey before him.

McCabe then used an interview with CBS’ “Sixty Minutes” to offer up more details of a discussion within the FBI and the DOJ to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

According to Michael Goodwin, “McCabe said that the effort took shape immediately after Trump fired Comey in May 2017 and that numerous people were involved, including Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.  Rosenstein, through an aide, denied the account.”

So now we one lying “swamp rat” calling another lying “swamp rat” a liar.

Beautiful.

All of these treasonous rats try to convince us that they were acting in the best interests of our country.  Ya…, that’s what all traitors say.  In actuality, they were acting in their own best interests.

Goodwin continues by saying, “Meanwhile, we do know that Comey and his dirty crew used the unverified Christopher Steele dossier, which was funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign, to get a secret court warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.  And FBI text messages, along with congressional testimony, confirm that the same agents probing Trump were simultaneously involved in the Clinton e-mail investigation and decided to go easy on her because they thought she would be their next boss.  Recall that Peter Strzok, the top agent in both cases, called the Trump probe an “insurance policy” in the event he won.”

Please tell me…, how are any of these slimy, treasonous, conspirators not in jail, still walking around, and selling books on top of it all?

Alan Dershowitz is an accredited and well-respected American lawyer and academic.  He is a scholar of United States Constitutional law and criminal law, and a noted civil libertarian. Most of his career has been at Harvard Law School where, in 1967, at the age of 28, he became the youngest full professor of law in its history.  He retired from Harvard in 2013, and subsequently became a regular CNN and Fox News contributor and political and legal analyst.

Dershowitz, giving his take on McCabe’s descriptions of Justice Department meetings where he said officials discussed ousting the president, said, “If [McCabe’s comments are] true, it is clearly an attempt at a coup d’état,” Dershowitz said.

“Evoking the 25th Amendment,” Dershowitz added, “would be a fundamental misuse of its original purpose.  It was originally about Woodrow Wilson having a stroke.  It’s about a president being shot and not being able to perform his office.”

So what exactly is in the 25th Amendment that is being referred to?

Let’s take a look.

Sections 3 and 4 from the 25th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America says:

3: Whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the Vice President as Acting President.

4: Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

The 25th Amendment was added to the Constitution in February of 1967.

Dershowitz added that, “Any justice official who discussed the 25th Amendment in the context of ousting the president has committed a grievous offense against the Constitution,” and that “using the 25th Amendment to circumvent the impeachment process or an election, is a despicable act of unconstitutional power grabbing.”

Mr. Dershowitz is definitely not mincing words here.

Getting back to the “Sixty Minutes” interview, “These were the eight days from Comey’s firing to the point that Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel,” Scott Pelley, the ’60 Minutes’ host said. “And the highest levels of American law enforcement were trying to figure out what to do with the president.” He [McCabe] said people involved were ‘counting noses’ and considering who might agree to the idea [of trying to remove The President].

“I was speaking to the man who had just run for the presidency and won the election for the presidency and who might have done so with the aid of the government of Russia, our most formidable adversary on the world stage. And that was something that troubled me greatly,” McCabe said in one excerpt.

Excuse me Mr. McCabe, but that is just an out and out lie.

You were entirely aware that the “Russian collusion” angle had been completely fabricated, and that was not what “troubled you greatly.”

What “troubled you greatly,” Mr. McCabe, was that President Trump and his administration might actually shine some light on all of the unethical, illegal, and treasonous activities that you and your “swampy” friends had performed and had become accustomed to getting away with.

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive! – Sir Walter Scott
