15 pages of documents that former FBI Director James Comey wrote in meetings with President Donald Trump in the final months of his tenure at the FBI were released to the public. These documents were critical to the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel to take over the ongoing Russia investigation at the DOJ and the FBI. The quagmire that is the Mueller investigation may finally be coming to an abrupt end.
The FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Russian collusion and the Trump campaign began in July of 2016. But it seems the memos contain none of the nefarious elements the liberal mainstream media and the progressive Democratic base probably listed for throughout this investigation, which has yet to produce strong evidence that there was collusion between the Trump team and the Kremlin.
Via The Daily Wire: “The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), said that releasing Comey’s memos puts Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in serious jeopardy of being “being placed in contempt of Congress and the special counsel investigation of being shut down,” the Washington Examiner reported.”
Now, since it appears like the “official” narrative to explain away why Hillary Clinton lost the Presidential Election in 2016 turned out to all be made up by the Democrat Party and their sycophants, today they have taken on a new way to keep the fake Russian Collusion and obstruction of justice alive and well in the media as reported by NOLA.
The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump.
The complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and help Trump by hacking the computer networks of the Democratic Party and disseminating stolen material found there.
“During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found a willing and active partner in Donald Trump’s campaign,” DNC Chairman Tom Perez said in a statement.
“This constituted an act of unprecedented treachery: the campaign of a nominee for President of the United States in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the presidency,” he said.
The case asserts that the Russian hacking campaign – combined with Trump associates’ contacts with Russia and the campaign’s public cheerleading of the hacks – amounted to an illegal conspiracy to interfere in the election that caused serious damage to the Democratic Party.
Senate investigators and prosecutors for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III are still investigating whether Trump associates coordinated with the Russian efforts. Last month, House Intelligence Committee Republicans said they found no evidence that President Trump and his affiliates colluded with Russian officials to sway the election or that the Kremlin sought to help him – a conclusion rejected by the panel’s Democrats.
The president has repeatedly rejected any collusion or improper activity by his campaign. This week, he referred again in a tweet to the “phony Russia investigation where, by the way, there was NO COLLUSION (except by the Dems).
Suing a foreign country may present legal challenges for the Democrats, in part because other nations have immunity from most U.S. lawsuits. The DNC’s complaint argues Russia is not entitled to the protection because the hack constituted a trespass on the party’s private property.
The lawsuit argues that Russia is not entitled to sovereign immunity in this case because “the DNC claims arise out of Russia’s trespass on to the DNC’s private servers…in order to steal trade secrets and commit economic espionage.”
The lawsuit echoes a similar legal tactic that the Democratic Party used during the Watergate scandal. In 1972, the DNC filed suit against then President Richard Nixon’s reelection committee seeking $1 million in damages for the break-in at Democratic headquarters in the Watergate building.
The suit was denounced at the time by Nixon’s attorney general, John Mitchell, who called it a case of “sheer demagoguery” by the DNC. But the civil action brought by former DNC chair Lawrence F. O’Brien was ultimately successful, yielding a $750,000 settlement from the Nixon campaign that was reached on the day in 1974 that Nixon left office.
The suit filed Friday seeks millions of dollars in compensation to offset damage it claims the party suffered from the hacks. The DNC argues that the cyberattack undermined its ability to communicate with voters, collect donations and operate effectively as its employees faced personal harassment and, in some cases, d***h threats.
The suit also seeks an acknowledgment from the defendants that they conspired to infiltrate the Democrats’ computers, steal information and disseminate it to influence the election.
To support its case, the lawsuit offers a detailed narrative of the DNC hacks, as well as episodes in which key Trump aides are alleged to have been told Russia held damaging information about Clinton.”
When the Democrats can’t win in the court of ideas they always resort to these sort of tricks. All the way back when the so-called “Lion of the Senate,” Ted Kennedy colluded with the Soviet Union back in 1984 in order to defeat then-president Ronald Reagan. No one said a word back then because we know all too well the GOP sometimes lacks a spine and are afraid of their own shadows. The Democrats will stop at nothing to impede this president. although we are living through some of the best economic times our nation has seen since the late 90’s. And this time it’s not because of a Silicon Valley bubble where only a select few made the money while the rest struggled to make ends meet.
