The more we learn about corruption at the top levels of the Obama FBI, Department of Justice, and the partisanship of the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency — John Brennan — and Director of National Intelligence — James Clapper — just imagine how many are praying for a Democrat sweep in the midterm elections.
They want a “get out of jail free card” which they would definitely get from “Impeach 45” Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Ca., and her fellow Democrats if they gained control of the U.S. House of Representatives.
With Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Ca., taking over the House Intelligence Committee, you can bet your boots Democrats would find “New Evidence” to put a fresh coat of conspiracy paint on the “Trump Russian” caper.
Schiff — who has a reputation of having never met a camera he didn’t fall in love with — would be beside himself with the title of Chairman and the power to set an anti-Trump agenda.
He would not be the only one firing shots over the Trump administration bow.
Just look at the House Committee on Oversight and Government Relations now Chaired by Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C. He is working closely with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, D-Ca., to make the FBI and DOJ accountable to the Congress.
They have even had to threaten to hold the Republican Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General in contempt of Congress for withholding documents.
With a Democratic House, not only would Schiff Chair the House Intelligence Committee and probably tell the FBI and DOJ to forget about Nunes’ requests, Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., would replace Gowdy as Chairman of the Oversight and Government Relations Committee.
Cummings will be remembered for his staunch defense of Lois Lerner at her IRS hearings; for doing whatever he could to protect and defend Hillary Clinton during Gowdy’s Benghazi hearings; and, his defense of Eric Holder during his contempt of Congress proceedings.
Democrat takeover of the House would also dash any hopes of exposing and punishing Hillary Clinton, her aides, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch as well as exposing former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and United Nations Ambassador Samantha Powers for possible unnecessary and illegal unmasking and exposing of Trump officials.
Do you really think that Committees controlled by Cummings and Schiff would permit an investigation into illegal conduct by the above persons as well as Clapper, Brennan, Comey, or any Obama officials — including those who placed spies/informants within the Trump campaign?
We are long past the time in our country when there is equal justice for all — especially among the privileged elite who swim, slither, and crawl in the Washington D.C. Swamp.
Do you see any Democrats urging Rosenstein and the FBI to turn over documents to Nunes and Gowdy and respect Congressional authority?
They and some Republicans are doing their best to protect and insulate Mueller.
He would be ecstatic with a Democrat takeover since he knows they wouldn’t care what boundaries he crossed as long as he “got Trump” on something. Give him time enough and he will find a crime — regardless of what he tells the president’s attorneys about not indicting him — they should trust him at their own — and the president’s — peril.
While he searches for a crime, his high-ranking friends at the DOJ and FBI will do anything they can to delay and stonewall their investigation into agency corruption and potential illegality.
Why? Because the pressure might be off if the Democrats take over the House — where most of the pressure is coming from.
There are already those who believe that Mueller is either a part of the plot to get rid of Trump having been conveniently placed there by Rosenstein; or, is a useful idiot set up to carry out the “insurance policy” of Trump haters in the FBI, DOJ, and Intelligence community.
The problem is that the stench of Obama’s “Swamp of Corruption” is becoming so great that not even Democrats, the American Civil Liberties Union, and their media allies may be able to sweep the greatest political and domestic spy scandal in history under the rug.
This will be made even more difficult if the DOJ Inspector General issues a blistering report revealing chapter and verse of illegal actions by key DOJ and FBI officials which even Democrats and the media won’t be able to ignore.
Such continuing revelations will cause Republicans and Trump voters to turn out in record mid-year numbers and make Democrats and the media pay for turning a blind eye to the trashing of our Constitution.
