I don’t always agree with former AG Bill Barr, but when I do, it’s about locking up Hillary Clinton. This time he is right on the money.
What Hillary did with the fake Alpha Bank hoax and the fraudulent Steele dossier did real damage to this country. Besides the $50 million dollars spent on the FBI and Mueller chasing their tails, she cost the FBI and other federal resources to be wasted when there are real crimes that needed their attention.
Hillary was neck-deep in the email scandal and she needed a distraction, she followed the Democratic playbook and used the old Wag the Dog gambit by spreading outright lies against a sitting president of the United States. It is the same strategy that Biden is using to cover up, well, everything he’s done.
Bill Barr said:
“I thought we were heading into a constitutional crisis. I think whatever you think of Trump, the fact is that the whole Russiagate thing was a grave injustice. It appears to be a dirty political trick that was used first to hobble him and then potentially to drive him from office. I believe it is seditious.”
“It was a gross injustice, and it hurt the United States in many ways, including what we’re seeing in Ukraine these days. It distorted our foreign policy, and so forth.”
An FBI investigation into Trump’s campaign over alleged ties to the Russian government during the 2016 election was hatched by the Hillary campaign and the DNC that funded the Stele dossier and last week Clinton campaign manager, Robby Mook testified under oath that Hillary personally approved the plan to release the fake Alpha Bank hoax to the media.
Leaks from the investigation were used by the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign to accuse Trump of colluding with the Russians to interfere in the election, spawning conspiracy theories that his victory was illegitimate. After Trump fired FBI Director James Comey in May 2017, congressional Democrats accused him of attempting to obstruct the Russia probe, demanding the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Trump’s actions.
After a two-year, $32 million investigation, Robert Mueller released a report in March 2019 that showed evidence of Russian interference in the election, but said the “investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.” By this time, questions were raised about the origins of Crossfire Hurricane and whether the FBI had inappropriately sought a FISA court warrant to surveil members of Trump’s 2016 campaign using opposition research from the Clinton campaign.
