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.

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.

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?

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.

    There are many American citizens who believe that there is not a lot that we can do about this blatent and outright attack against our President. Do I need to remind you that we are still the voters. Remove the votes from the electoral states and what do you have? We need to let our senators and congressmen know that we are not going to listen to them claim ignorance of the facts. If the average American can see what is going on, then don't hand us this bull**** that you didn't know when they live it day in and day out. It is all very clear and I will make this my stand today and at the polls. Every Democratic congressman/senator knows what is going on. Every Republican congressman/senator knows what is going on. They have wasted our time, patience, and huge amounts of money that could have went to help those in need, which is the main part of the platform that they ran on, for the American people to be there for each other-- bunch of lies again. I don't care if you have been of democratic persuasion for 20 generations, what wrong is wrong. The Democrats see there platform falling apart and they are grasping at imaginary straws to try and save it, and being an embarrassment to their party as a whole, to themselves, and to their voters who believe in their honesty and moral fortitude enough to vote for them. THEY HAVE PROVEN THEMSELVES TO BE LIARS TO THEIR OWN PEOPLE, and amazingly enough, there will be some who will vote for them again. For what reason? Not because they are honest and trustworthy. There is really only one reason--just because they are Democrats. It is time for the American people to speak out with a VERY LOUD voice and let the LIARS and DISHONEST parties,and our congressmen/senators, whether Democrat or those Republican who are showing themselves to be weak and spineless by trying ride the center line, that if they do not immediately disassociate themselves with these LIARS and LOSERS, THAT THEY WILL NOT SEE ANOTHER TERM IN OFFICE. It has been proven that the Democrats lied, perjured theirselves, and broken all kinds of laws and protocol. It is time,today, not tomorrow, not next week, for each one of our elected officials to make a decision. The Democrats have drawn that line in the sand. There is no middle ground. Those straddling the fence need to go down with the Democrats when,not if( because we already see it happening) their little fiasco finishes falling apart. So call or text your elected officials today and let them know they will either stand for what is right or we will find someone who will next election, and we are not going to wait until right before election time for them to make up their minds.

    At least we get to see 1st hand just how dirty D.C. is. It is sad that Donald Trump and his family must take the brunt of the blow. I intend to VOTE appropriately. I am just not sure if it will do any good after the subversive engineering that I am seeing, it may just be that the bad guys HAVE TAKEN the hill. It may be that they are dug in so deep that the only way to remove them will be "amputation".

    Why not declassify everything before mid terms and the statute of limitations run out....gambling on election results given the gravity of these crimes seems either arrogant or inept.

    Mueller and all should be investigated for Conspiracy to take down the President Right Now! That is what it is. A Conspiracy! The News Media President Trump calls Fake have their hands in the Conspiracy, Too. Free Speech Should not be used to Promote a Conspiracy Like This! Fake News Media is Actively Involved! By the Definition of Conspiracy given by Judge Napolitano, it is a Conspiracy. All invoved should be charged and News should report it as such!

    If there are strong incontrovertible evidence, it would be most urgent and proper to file a case in court so these guys would be prosecuted, and convicted, in a court of law, not in the newsmedia. The democrats are very aggressive against republicans and have one solid voice which shakes any republican to eventually drop out or resign.....particularly they don't have the media on their back....So it would be relieving if cases against democrats are filed in court.
