Pressure is building on Congress and the White House to investigate and fully expose the most dastardly and widespread series of crimes committed by the DNC and agencies of the U.S. government against the American people.
Meanwhile, news networks stubbornly refuse to explain or even acknowledge the explosive revelations about the massive effort to cripple the Trump campaign and subsequent administration. There is good reason for this.
As reported by WikiLeaks in 2015, no less than 65 mainstream media reporters were invited to meet with Clinton pal, John Podesta over lavish dinners to begin the work of selling the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign to the American people. Millions of people regularly read the skewed reports and listened to the shaded news stories written by these partisan insiders. Many still do.
Last week, House Intelligence Committee Chairman, Devin Nunes released his committee’s report of facts. The Nunes memo shows a pattern of collusion between the Department of Justice, the FBI and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign to impugn Donald Trump and prevent his election. Once that effort failed, the same elements embarked upon a propaganda mission to undermine the Trump administration with false charges of Russian collusion which escalated into the appointment of former FBI Director, Robert Mueller, as Special Counsel.

In a second memo released this week, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, Charles Grassley, recommended that criminal charges be filed against former British spy and FBI informant, Christopher Steele, for lying to the FBI. Steele was paid $160,000 through Fusion GPS which was funded by a DNC law firm that was hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign, to produce the fabricated anti-Trump dossier.
Steele compiled the dossier from unverified information he received from Russian intelligence sources. He then leaked details of the manufactured document to the New York Times, the Washington Post, The New Yorker, Yahoo News and CNN. For over a year, these and other “news” agencies have bombarded their audiences with the bogus narrative of a Russian-Trump connection.
The Clinton-funded dossier was used by the FBI and DoJ to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant and several 90-day renewals to conduct surveillance operations against several advisors to presidential candidate, Donald Trump. Christopher Steele was fired by the FBI in October 2016 for leaks to the media. However, the agency continued to rely on his unverified material. But wait! It gets worse.
According to Senator Grassley’s memo, DoJ officer, Bruce Ohr, continued to contact Christopher Steele and Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS. In fact, Ohr’s wife worked for Fusion GPS even as the FISA applications were being written and submitted. But wait! It gets worse again.
Christopher Steele was receiving information supplied by associates of former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, still working at the State Department and passing the specious intelligence along to Bruce Ohr at the DoJ.
Senator Grassley’s Judiciary Committee report coupled with the Nunes House Intelligence Committee report outline a complex web of lies, collusion with Russian agents and intolerable betrayal within the leadership ranks of the FBI and Department of Justice Offices. Every strand of this broad network eventually connects back to Hillary Clinton and perhaps, further.
President Trump’s administration now needs to take a battle-ax to the leadership of the FBI, the Department of Justice and the State Department. The coordinated covert effort to prevent the election of Donald Trump and subsequent attempts to drive him out of office are not simply attacks on the president. The Nunes and Grassley documents outline a dangerous assault on the American people and our democratic election process.
An investigation is now necessary to determine if this KGB-style coup was hatched by the Obama administration and to discover what other elements were involved. The public deserves to know the full extent of the conspiracy, including which news media sources released information that should not have been in their possession.
This enormous scandal within the federal government and consideration of its potentially catastrophic outcome should serve as a reminder to us all, of the critical importance of judging men and women by the content of their character. As our culture deteriorates, oaths of office mean nothing. The legal consequences prescribed for violations of law are no barrier to the insatiable thirst for political power and wealth.
We have forgotten valuable lessons of the past. We have failed to judge rightly. Scripture asks, “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Americans came gravely close to finding out.
