Trump, Mueller – Collusion?


What The Heck Just Happened?

After two and one-half years we finally have the verdict from the Mueller Investigation. There is “no there there.” Despite the claims that the President was a “traitor” and that the Russians sabotaged Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the $35 million investigation found nothing. We are all sick and tired of hearing about Russians and collusion and really just want to move on with our lives.

But, unfortunately, we can’t.

What really just happened?

Something just happened. Something very profound, and we need to know what it was. This is not just a matter of satisfying our curiosity. It is a matter of knowing where we stand as a country and the danger we are in as a republic.

Maybe we just saw a bunch of over-zealous highly partisan senior officials attempt to intervene in the political process to the benefit of Hillary Clinton and the detriment of Donald Trump.

Maybe these individuals took poorly-sourced, suspect rumors and slanderous accusations and tried their best to turn them into something that would bring down a sitting President. That would be terrifying enough, but if that’s all that happened, that’s good news.

Was this campaign against Trump orchestrated?

There is another much darker possibility. It is possible that what we just saw was a deliberately orchestrated, carefully managed and directed coup attempt. It is possible that we just saw shadowy forces at work, who attempted to overturn the results of a free and open election and overthrow the duly elected President of the United States.

We don’t know that yet. We do know enough to know that there are a lot of questions that need to be answered.

How did this investigation get started? Who started it?

Former CIA Director Brennan stood up, on his watch, a counter-intelligence working group to investigate Donald Trump, the Trump campaign and allegations of collusion with Moscow. Why? How is it possible that Mr. Mueller found nothing to substantiate these allegations after two years of investigation, but Mr. Brennan was convinced of President Trump’s guilt from the outset? If Mr. Brennan was acting in good faith, where is the evidence on which he relied?

What did the counterintelligence working group that Mr. Brennan established do? What organizations were part of this task force? What operations did this unit run and against whom? What were the results?

Maybe most importantly, who were the other senior officials on this working group? Where are they now? Many of the key figures in this whole hoax are no longer officially in federal service. That doesn’t mean they’re all gone or have no influence.
