Some day a thriller of a book will be written about Donald Trump’s election, and the widespread efforts to undermine and delegitimize his presidency. To paraphrase the ancient (Chinese?) curse, we are certainly living in “interesting times.”
It’s safe to say not a single one of you reading this has ever seen anything like this in your lifetime — and we’re all on this ride together. The problem is, it doesn’t look like we can get off either.
Many were disappointed a few months ago when FBI Director James Comey held a press conference to reveal what he’d learned about Hillary Clinton’s private email server and her handling of classified information. As he laid out the various transgressions Clinton had committed, it seemed a slam dunk that he would conclude she should be prosecuted. But then…after all that, he folded.
Now as smoking gun after smoking gun appears regarding the possibility of illegal wire taps and surveillance on members of the Trump team and even the president himself, a new theory is emerging as to why Comey caved.
Per the Gateway Pundit, Blackmail is one of the most effective tools to control people in power, especially politicians. Is this why Comey didn’t recommend charges for Hillary Clinton on the email investigation? If Hillary was aware of the FBI wiretapping, she could use that as blackmail against Comey. Yesterday, TGP reported that FBI Director Comey asked the Justice Department to publicly reject Trump’s wiretapping claim. Did he order the wiretap? It appears that Hillary Clinton was aware of the wiretap because she tweeted about it one week before the election.
Don’t forget, then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch met with Bill Clinton on the tarmac of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in June of 2016 right around the same time as the first FISA request. Did Bill Clinton mention the wiretapping plan to his lovely wife? Were they all in cahoots?
The Gateway Pundit speculates, If Hillary Clinton had knowledge of Comey’s involvement in the wiretapping, perhaps he let her off the hook to save himself from Clinton blackmail tactics.
We are not only living in interesting times, but very dangerous ones as well. Looks like a tinfoill hat is not going to be protection enough from what we have yet to learn.
