As recently noted, the purpose of both the FBI investigation and the special counsel probe always was and still is to GET RID OF TRUMP.  Now, it turns out that everything we’ve suspected about the anti-Trump connections between FBI investigators and top Obama DOJ officials such as deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and former associate deputy AG Bruce Ohr –- married to Nellie Ohr, who worked for Fusion GPS, who hired (through Hillary Clinton, the DNC and law firm Perkins Coie) the anti-Trump British ex-spy Christopher Steele to write the unsubstantiated “dossier” –- has just been shown to be true.  The story emerges in hundreds of previously unreported emails and memos that show Ohr’s close association with those who were clearly out to get Trump, both inside the government (the FBI and Obama’s DOJ) and outside (Hillary and the DNC).

These documents show a friendly relationship among people who met often.  Notably, Ohr and Steele met at the Mayflower Hotel on July 30, 2016, the very day before FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok opened the FBI investigation into “Russia” and Trump.

Ohr, then the fourth most powerful person in the Obama Justice Department (under Sally Yates, who signed the FISA application for a warrant to spy on Trump campaign associate Carter Page), seems to have been the central figure, the coordinator of this group; he had contact with Christopher Steele through notes, emails and texts over 60 times, most of which were during the 2016-2017 period surrounding the investigation of candidate Trump and, later, President Trump.  Apparently, Steele was being paid by both the Hillary campaign (through Fusion GPS) and the FBI, which seems oddly appropriate considering they were essentially one and the same.


RELATED READING: It's all for nothing if they don't get rid of Trump


Even after Christopher Steele’s relationship with the FBI was officially terminated over charges of misconduct –- speaking to the media and lying about it –- Bruce and Nellie Ohr continued to function as conduits for him to continue digging up salacious gossip against Trump and funneling it to the FBI –- even after Trump was elected, and inaugurated.  (Why admit defeat just because the people have spoken?)  Obviously, the FISA judges were kept in the dark about this.  Reporter John Solomon, in his opinion pieces for THE HILL, has been all over this story for months, and there’s little I can add to his new report, so, please, just read it because he lays it all out so well.  But a warning:  it’ll make you so mad.

http://thehill.com/hilltv/rising/400810-opinion-how-a-senior-justice-official-helped-dems-on-trump-russia-case

Such outright corruption surely has enormous bearing on the legality of the original FBI investigation and, by extension, the special counsel.  There was never any evidence of a crime, nothing to show probable cause.  Was the appointment of Robert Mueller by deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein even remotely constitutional, especially since Rosenstein had major conflicts of interest that should have forced him to recuse himself?  Should any of this special counsel garbage be going on at all?  A U.S. attorney's office could be looking into Russian "meddling," as well as old tax and loan fraud cases like Paul Manafort's.  And what right does this bureaucrat (who never went through the confirmation process required for a position of such authority) have to make the President of the United States, on whom no evidence exists that he “colluded” with Russians, take time out of his busy schedule to answer even one stinking question? 


Commentary continues below advertisement


The President should not stand for this.  He’s been willing to cooperate because he knows he didn’t do anything wrong, but surely he also knows that in this investigation, his innocence doesn’t matter.  Rudy Giuliani has said his team is still “leaving the door open” for an interview with conditions.  But anyone testifying under oath can be unwittingly caught in a perjury trap, which undoubtedly is the goal here.  So, in the end, I'd say no interview, Mr. President.  But maybe it's good that I'm not your lawyer, because if Mueller tried to serve you with a subpoena, I'd have a hard time not suggesting a convenient but rather uncomfortable place for him to put it.

    So the cabal that established this narrative, pushed it, and built out the infrastructure appears to have had as it's original objective the procedural perjury trap and subsequent smoke screen of outrage that would either prevent President of US(A) Donald Trump's election with the backup of impeachment. Wouldn't that be sedition? Also, given the level of professional legal training these people have, wouldn't it be pretty much impossible for them to hide behind any kind of "curtain" along the lines that they acted in good faith but made an error?

    I got to have lunch with Gov. Laxalt when I was only 17- - scary, but exiting day for me. I was representing Nevada at the America's Jr. Miss Pageant in Mobile, AL. At lunch, I confessed I was terrified I'd spill my entire lunch on him! Without missing a beat, he said, "I was just thinking that I night spill my lunch on YOU!" I laughed and thought - - "What a classy guy!" We had a memorable, really fun lunch together. He asked me what inspired me to be Nevada's Jr. Miss and I said, "I want to help Nevada create the image Nevada deserve." I asked him what inspired him to be governor and he replied - - "Same as you!" We both spoke to the audience members and teased each other about who's speech was better. He donated 50 Silver Dollars so I would have a gift for all the girls. When leaving I said, "Governor Laxalt, you know you've created a Republican for life. And one day, I'll be able to vote! Such a nice tribute you gave him!

    Wouldn't it be great if you were an advisor to President Trump? There are so many great minds out there that would be so valuable to him and hopefully he knows this now.
    The truth that the Justice Department, FBI and CIA are so corrupt is almost unbelievable in the our country and thanks to Barack Odumbo for poisoning the system. It is so unfair and disgusting to watch how the President and his family are treated and nothing is done about it. How can the President and his family be threatened by DeNiro and other idiots like him and no one does anything about it? Sickening!
    We have an "imitation" Attorney General who has been missing in action and I believe he is afraid of the "justice mafia" and too bad President Trump didn't fire him when he wanted to. Why won't anyone stop the Mueller investigation? The millions wasted should have been used to help our poor people and people all over the world who suffer so much.

    This is all good as the corruption within government and collusion with the DNC and our "friends" in big media (what kind of friend deceives a friend?) is slowly coming to light. When the details about the genesis of the investigation including the probable setup of the Trump Tower meeting with a hillary operative present and likely setup of George Papandreou in order to give the appearance of foreknowledge of russian
    Interference, if confirmed, will show someone behind the scenes coordinating the project to destroy Trump. Has all the markings of a clinton operation, coordinated through the oval office. We'll have to patiently wait and see and continue to pray for this nation and for the exposure of its enemies (kind of a pun, definitely intended), without ceasing.

    Since ALL the Obama, HRC, DNC, FBI former head officials and others conspired (colluded) against candidate Trump, his campaign associates, President Trump and now his administration - ALL this is TRUE - why is there no mechanism in the law to debunk, prosecute, and serve justice to those who did commit criminal acts? If there isn't any precedent, then it's time that the American people make one. This is such a disgrace for this country, and a flagrant disrespect of our democracy and freedom.

    Mike,

    Everybody knows this has been fake news from the beginning. I don't care if Donald Trump built a 'Trump Tower Moscow'. This whole idea that he is in collusion with the Russians is a ridiculous piece of propaganda.  The real story is the Democrats / lefties / Progressive can't get over the fact that they lost. That was two years ago. Two years! The Democrats, the lefties, the liberal mainstream media and the like are like a cat chasing its tail. They keep telling everybody there was a Russian conspiracy, and they keep chasing what they're telling everybody. And a round and round they go.
