February 2, 2018 – MEMO DAY!
Bruce & Nellie Ohr sliding information from a private organization into FBI files under the radar is highly improper, if not unethical.
Andrew McCabe should have recused himself immediately from the Clinton email investigation as the connections between his wife and the Clintonistas (McAuliffe has always been an extension of Bill and Hillary) were too close to ensure that he could investigate Hillary impartially and critically.
If Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos are in the docket for the mortal sin of lying to the FBI, Peter Strzok, Christopher Steele, and Lisa Page should be standing right next to them.
The only collusion we’ve seen evidence of is collusion between Democrats to undermine the 2016 election wherever possible and to lie about their biases while doing so.
But, at least Russians have finally gotten woke to Russian subversion, even if it 60 years after they should have.
D.C. is an incestuous little nest of vipers. This is not new. What the HPSCI memo reveals is how highly-placed government officials will use the power of their office in service to partisan politics. The Democrat abuse of FISA only proves that their villanization of Richard Nixon as a political anti-Christ for spying on his political enemies is not based on any moral objection to spying, but the fact that a Republican would have the temerity to spy on them.
