Americans have long been curious as to when the President would finally begin the long, arduous process of going after those who protected Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election, and we may now have the beginnings of an answer.
During the tumultuous contest that saw Donald Trump eventually rise to the role of Commander in Chief, Hillary Clinton was outed as a career criminal on more than a few occasions. Trump himself, having known Clinton personally for some time, was quick to point out that, while they may have been acquaintances, he was well aware of her snake-like prowess when it came to cheating others.
That photo comes to us from the wedding of Donald and Melania, to which the Clintons were invited and had a grand time, at least by the pie-faced smiles seen in this visage from the night.
Trump knows The Clintons. We have to remember that, when Bill and Hillary needed to shed their Arkansas-roots in order to better appeal to the liberal masses, Hillary wound up as a Senator from New York – the city that was built, in part, by Donald Trump’s massive real estate empire. They were likely more than mere acquaintances, as evidenced by Trump blistering takedowns of the former First Lady on the election trail.
And that was only the first debate between these two political titans.
It wasn’t Donald Trump alone who took down the often-vilified Clinton in 2016, however. The real estate mogul had more than a little help from Julian Assange and Wikileaks, a whistleblower website that published a number of leaked email from within the Clinton campaign, shedding light on the former Secretary of State’s illegal and immoral behavior during her time as Secretary of State. Her “pay to play” schemes were the most damning.
“’The emails show “what happened” was that Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin obviously violated laws about the handling of classified information and turned the State Department into a pay for play tool for the corrupt Clinton Foundation,’ Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, in a swipe at Clinton’s newly released campaign memoir ‘What Happened.’ ‘The clear and mounting evidence of pay for play and mishandling of classified information warrant a serious criminal investigation by an independent Trump Justice Department.’
“In July 2009, Zachary Schwartz, an associate for donor Steve Bing, contacted Doug Band, a Clinton Foundation official and former top aide to President Bill Clinton, requesting help on visas for Cuba for a film production crew from Bing’s Shangri La Entertainment. Band forwarded the request to Abedin asking her to call Schwartz ‘asap.’ Abedin said she would. Bing reportedly donated between $10 million and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation.
“Another instance was in September 2009, when chairman of futures brokerage firm CME Group and Clinton Foundation donor Terrence Duffy asked Clinton to help arrange ‘government appointments’ in Singapore and Hong Kong. Clinton forwarded the request to Abedin, who said she would ‘follow up’ with his secretary.”
This horrific bit of corruption was only part of what was unearthed by the treasure trove of Clinton emails. There were also indications that Clinton’s long-rumored Parkinson’s Disease diagnosis was possibly accurate.
“Jake Sullivan, Hillary Clinton’s top foreign policy adviser, extensively researched the drug Provigil while working for her at the State Department in 2011.
“Sullivan, then Secretary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, informed Clinton in an email that Provigil, a drug commonly used to treat narcolepsy and other sleep-wake disorders, ‘was invented by the military.’
“’Provigil is used to treat excessive sleepiness caused by narcolepsy or shift work sleep disorder (sleepiness during scheduled waking hours among people who work at night or on rotating shifts),’ he wrote in a previously released email.
“Sullivan also noted that Provigil is often prescribed to treat ‘excessive sleepiness in patients with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis.'”
Provigil is also famous for being the methamphetamine substitute given to Russian fighter jet pilots to keep them awake on long flights.
Of course, all of these accusations were small potatoes compared to the Hillary scandal to end all Hillary scandals: The 33,000 missing emails from her private server at the State Department which were deleted with the use of a high-level deletion software called BleachBit.
“Hillary Clinton’s lawyers used a special tool to delete emails from her personal server so that ‘even God can’t read them,’ House Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy said on Thursday.
“Gowdy (R-S.C.) said the use of BleachBit, computer software whose website advertises that it can ‘prevent recovery’ of files, is further proof that Clinton had something to hide in deleting personal emails from the private email system she used during her tenure as secretary of state.
“Clinton has long said that the deleted emails were all of a personal nature, relating largely to yoga and her daughter’s wedding, but Gowdy said he did not know whether the Democratic nominee considered emails pertaining to the Clinton Foundation to be personal. It’s a question he said he hopes reporters ask Clinton the next chance they get.”
And, even after all of this evidence pointing to Clinton’s obvious corruption and subsequent coverup, nothing was done.
The FBI made a few statements condemning the actions of Clinton, but made the recommendation not to press charges, even though Hillary was clearly acting nefariously with her private email server – a move that endangered national security in ways that we cannot even imagine.
The director of the FBI at the time, James Comey, was one of the first bureaucrats on the chopping block when Trump finally reached the Oval Office.
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday strongly defended President Donald Trump’s firing of James Comey, linking the FBI director’s abrupt dismissal to his handling of the Hillary Clinton email server investigation.
“Sessions, appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, said it was ‘the first time I’m aware of’ in which an FBI director had performed the traditional role of Justice Department prosecutors by announcing on his own the conclusion of a federal investigation — that no charges would be brought against Clinton.
“He said he was further galled when Comey, weeks before his firing, insisted to Congress that he would have taken the same actions again.”
Comey was also the first of the high profile, drain the swamp firings that Trump initiated, but he wasn’t done at the FBI yet.
The organization itself had recently come under fire, (no pun intended), for their botched investigations not only into Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election, but also in the cases of mass shooters Omar Mateen and Nikolas Cruz, both of whom were reported to the agency in the weeks before their massacres, with Cruz having been described as someone who would likely “shoot up a school”.
Now, as the Trump team looks further into the ignorance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, they are discovering even more evidence of FBI wrongdoing, specifically involving Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
And, like Comey, McCabe’s offenses were too heavy to let slide, with the Deputy Director making several leaks in regard to ongoing investigations.
Even more damning: The termination came just two days before McCabe was set to retire with full pension.
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday night fired former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, a little more than 24 hours before McCabe was set to retire — a move that McCabe alleged was an attempt to slander him and undermine the ongoing special counsel investigation into the Trump campaign.
“Sessions announced the decision in a statement just before 10 p.m., noting that both the Justice Department inspector general and the FBI office that handles discipline had found ‘that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.’
“He said based on those findings and the recommendation of the department’s senior career official, ‘I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately.’”
The left has, predictably, reared back and begun an assault on the firing of McCabe, claiming that this is yet another symptom of their imaginary Russian Flu that is going around.
