I can’t speak for the politicians, but I think I can safely say that every single normal citizen in this country is looking for an end to this Russia interference issue that has been going on and on. If the Russians did it, we need to patch the holes. If they didn’t do it, then the liberals need to shut their pie holes about President Trump not being legally elected and let us move on.
In order to sort this out, we really need to track the information about the 2016 election and Russia back to the source. That was the goal when information was found about one DC “research firm” who might have just originated the information about the whole thing.
Via Breitbart News:
Author Paul Sperry reports that the Senate is probing the partisan nature of a DC opposition research firm which produced a “dossier” on then-presidential candidate Donald Trump in 2016 alleging that he is a secret agent of Russian President Vladimir Putin — recruited via blackmail with a videotape of Trump and urinating Russian prostitutes.
Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly cited that discredited dossier as the basis for the current investigation of “Russian interference” in the 2016 election, which has been taken up by Robert Mueller, a friend of Comey’s who served as FBI Director under presidents Bush and Obama.
So it sounds like the FBI is using a private firm’s information as the entire basis of an investigation into the Presidential campaign. Which might be a reasonable thing to do if the firm were in any way unbiased. Unfortunately, that’s not the case with this particular company.
From the New York Post:
A secretive Washington firm that commissioned the dubious intelligence dossier on Donald Trump is stonewalling congressional investigators trying to learn more about its connections to the Democratic Party.
The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House.
What is the company hiding? Fusion GPS describes itself as a “research and strategic intelligence firm” founded by “three former Wall Street Journal investigative reporters.” But congressional sources says it’s actually an opposition-research group for Democrats, and the founders, who are more political activists than journalists, have a pro-Hillary, anti-Trump agenda.
“These weren’t mercenaries or hired guns,” a congressional source familiar with the dossier probe said. “These guys had a vested personal and ideological interest in smearing Trump and boosting Hillary’s chances of winning the White House.”
OK, so an extremely biased opposition research firm released some information about their opposition as if it were fact that he was in collusion with another country, and the whole world just bought it, lock stock and barrel. Now when asked to produce the actual basis for this information, they’re getting a little skittish.
Perhaps the idea was that even if they had to take a hit later, the damage to the Trump White House bid would have been done, and they could deal with the fallout later. Hopefully a later that included Clinton in the highest office in the land. While morality is getting more and more subjective, I think ti’s safe to say that if this firm was supplying the federal government with blatant lies to back up a candidate they wanted in office, it’s time for some serious punishment.
