Crossfire Hurricane - Part IV

Jerry Nadler and his pro-impeachment cohorts in the Democratically controlled House of Representatives scoot across the political landscape like demented elves, screeching "obstruction! ... racism! ... collusion! ... impeachment! ... white supremacy! ... Russia! ... " over and over in a pathetic attempt to unseat a duly elected president. Polls indicate that the public is tired of listening to their empty accusations, but Trump Derangement Syndrome is a powerful force that makes otherwise sane people take truly insane positions. Actually, there might be a bit more to it, but more on that in a moment.

The Chicago Tribune's John Kass interviewed author Andrew McCarthy who wrote a new book Ball of Collusion—not about the hoax that suggested Trump collusion with the Russkies, but rather the evidence-based collusion between Trump opponent, Hillary Clinton, her ally, Barack Obama, her party in the form of the DNC, and a variety of federal intelligence of law enforcement officials along with unnamed Russian sources. That's the "crossfire hurricane" scandal (also, here and here), and to quote a once-mentor of Barack Obama, "The chickens are coming home to roost.'

Kass writes:
... in a few weeks, sooner perhaps, the dogs will begin barking even louder upon release of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on his investigation of possible Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuses by the Justice Department and the FBI as they looked into Donald Trump and Russia ...

Citizen Barack Obama understood how federal power could be abused as he lectured on the Constitution at the University of Chicago, not too far from where Chicago plans to build him a great temple.

But did President Obama worry about this when he convened that secret White House meeting on Jan. 5, 2017, just as Trump was about to take control?

John Brennan of Obama’s CIA was at that meeting. And Vice President Joe Biden. James Comey, then of the FBI, was there, as were national security adviser Susan Rice (who lied for the Obama White House about the Benghazi disaster) and other intelligence bosses ...

The real collusion was that the Obama administration put the awesome powers of the federal government — law enforcement and intelligence — at the service of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

The scheme to get Clinton elected had two parts, McCarthy argues. The first was to shield former Secretary of State Clinton from disqualifying and potentially criminal allegations that she violated federal law by having a private unsecured email server and later destroyed the evidence.

And, as an insurance policy, the other part of the scheme was to portray Trump as an agent of Russia’s Vladimir Putin.
These are fact-based allegations supported by communications from the perpetrators in their own words.

The Dems' trained hamsters in the media will do everything possible to downplay the Crossfire Hurricane findings by following the Treacher Rule:

But Nadler and his elves have a role to play as well. As the Crossfire Hurricane findings begin to be made public, their screeches will intensify—impeachment will become I-M-P-E-A-C-H-M-E-N-T!!!—a shiny object than will allow politically biased and corrupt media types (and that covers about 90 percent of the national media) to disregard the most significant political scandal in the history of the United States.
