There are seemingly endless layers to the concept of the liberal “resistance” to the President, with the mundane end catering to the keyboard warriors of the left, while the more extreme examples finding play within the realm of the Deep State.
When it comes to inter-governmental malfeasance, no one has been more faulty than the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the past few years, with the spy agency constantly finding itself embroiled in a number of controversial, anti-Trump activities.
Obviously, the complete and utter lack of spine on former Director James Comey comes to mind. The democratic lackey has been proven time and again to have had no inclination to investigate Hillary Clinton’s horrific crimes against this country while operating as Barack Obama’s Secretary of State – something that he was later fired for by uncompromising populist President Donald Trump.
The agency has continued its downward spiral in recent weeks as well, having been proven to have utterly botched their response to warning regarding two of the nation’s most horrific criminals, Omar Mateen and Nikolas Cruz.
Now, as the nation continues to grapple with the overt “resistance” to our President coming from within the government itself, new evidence suggests that the FBI may have planted a mole within the Trump campaign itself during the time that Obama was still President…an act so despicable that it could change the very way in which we interact with our government.
There may have been an FBI spy interacting with the Trump campaign in 2016, Kimberly Strassel reported in the Wall Street Journal Thursday evening, adding fuel to long-held suspicions that an FBI/DOJ mole had attempted to ensnare Trump campaign advisers in some sort of Russian collusion trap.
This revelation comes after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein again backed down after a protracted fight with Republicans on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, allowing members to view classified documents about “a top-secret intelligence source that was part of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign.”
Explains Strassel: “When government agencies refer to sources, they mean people who appear to be average citizens but use their profession or contacts to spy for the agency. Ergo, we might take this to mean that the FBI secretly had a person on the payroll who used his or her non-FBI credentials to interact in some capacity with the Trump campaign.”
“This would amount to spying, and it is hugely disconcerting. It would also be a major escalation from the electronic surveillance we already knew about, which was bad enough. Obama political appointees rampantly “unmasked” Trump campaign officials to monitor their conversations, while the FBI played dirty with its surveillance warrant against Carter Page, failing to tell the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that its supporting information came from the Hillary Clinton campaign. Now we find it may have also been rolling out human intelligence, John Le Carré style, to infiltrate the Trump campaign.”
This news would be earth-shattering for the American political powder keg that we are currently roosting atop.
The implications are that a former President, in order to preemptively delegitimize his endorsee’s opponent, ordered a spy agency to infiltrate the campaign of an American citizen. If that’s not treason, it’s certainly usurping of the Constitutional process and something that should be dealt with under the full weight of the law.
