For the past year, the Democrat's trained hamsters of the main stream media have hyperventilated over a meeting that Donald Trump Jr. and other campaign staff had with a Russian lawyer, titularly to gather dirt on Hillary Clinton. In what amounts to a breathtaking level of disingenuousness, they are shocked, absolutely shocked, that one political campaign would want to gather dirt on another. They, of course, have decided that a one-off, 20-minute meeting that yielded no dirt on anyone is prima facie evidence of "Russian collusion." The hamsters, oddly, are absolutely uninterested in another set of paid activities and meetings, conducted by the DNC and the Clinton Campaign through Fusion GPS, in cooperation, it now seems, with the Obama DoJ and with direct cooperation of the Russians. Those activities resulted in a phony dossier that was used to initiate a surveillance campaign by Obama-weaponized FBI and intelligence agencies against an opposition political party. But media interest in all of that is nil, because ... Democrats were the perpetrators.

In a comprehensive analysis (read the whole thing), John Solomon comments on the latest revelations gleaned from just-released documents that the DoJ and FBI refused to release for over a year. He writes:
Hundreds of pages of previously unreported emails and memos provide the clearest evidence yet that a research firm, hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to find dirt on and defeat Donald Trump, worked early and often with the FBI, a Department of Justice (DOJ) official and the intelligence community during the 2016 presidential election and the early days of Trump's presidency.

Fusion GPS's work and its involvement with several FBI officials have been well reported.

But a close review of these new documents shows just how closely Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, who reported to Obama-era Deputy AG Sally Yates, maintained contact with Fusion — and, in particular, its primary source, former British spy Christopher Steele — before, during and after the election.

Yates was fired by President Trump over an unrelated political dispute. Ohr was demoted recently.

Ohr’s own notes, emails and text messages show he communicated extensively with Steele and with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. Those documents have been turned over in recent weeks to investigative bodies in Congress and the DOJ, but not reviewed outside the investigative ranks until now.

They show Ohr had contact with Steele in the days just before the FBI opened its Trump-Russia probe in summer 2016, and then engaged Steele as a “confidential human source” (CHS) assisting in that probe.

They also confirm that Ohr later became a critical conduit of continuing information from Steele after the FBI ended the Brit's role as an informant.
In January, 2017, the trained hamsters characterized Yates political grandstanding (she refused to resign her position at the end of the Obama administration) as a heroic form of political protest. What we now see is she was a blatant political operator who was actively involved in an effort to undermine Trump before he election and delegitimize him after his victory.

Ever so slowly, despite obfuscation by the Democrats and an active campaign to bury this major scandal by the media, the truth comes out. Drip, drip, drip.


Just this morning, GOP Representative Chris Collins was indicted by the DoJ for insider trading. I suspect the charges are legitimate. CNN gave over two hours of coverage to the story, including broadcasting the complete news conference conducted by the DoJ announcing the charges.

Interesting that a relatively unimportant indictment of a Republican gets massive coverage, while new revelations that have a bearing on a major national scandal involving Democrats gets virtually none. Heh.
