As America prepares to slumber into it’s dual holiday seasons of Christmas and drinking itself blind, aka, the post-Christmas to New Year’s Eve non-stop drinking party (or whatever the hell you consume), news is quietly being made and sometimes, looking beyond the headlines should wake everyone up.
You know, headlines like these:
That’s just a small sample of the news. The obviously apparent bias by the Mueller team to protect the Democrats and attack Trump is a problem ignored by the left but starting to bear fruit from the non-conspiracy mainstream right. The investigation was opened without any criminal investigation or pretense thereof due to a lack of any crime being committed yet the Mueller team went fishing and so far has dredged up four undersized fish that would have to be thrown back in the water if you lived where I do.
The events of the last few weeks are nothing short of amazing as General Flynn’s illegal activities as a lobbyist have been blown up into absurd allegations that Trump was feeling up Putin’s boxers in search of the lost nuclear launch codes which Obama misplaced during a stoner weekend at the Burning Man Festival. The truth however is that Trump, albeit as incompetent as he is engaging in some matters at the government level, would not risk his administration or future by dealing with the Russian government in an illicit manner before or after he was elected.
Meanwhile in the background, there appears to be an exit strategy starting to formulate not just based on Mueller’s pro-Hillary bias, especially from his staff, but based on actual legal activities outside of Trump’s and Mueller’s legal team.
A little reported story by the Washington Examiner‘s excellent reporter Paul Bedard should have set off alarm bells on Friday:
The headline sounds innocent enough, as do the conclusions, but this excerpt should provide a clue:
An FBI email released through the Freedom of Information Act said that Sessions had no obligation to reveal any contacts with foreign officials unless he “developed personal relationships” with them.
The bottom line: His two contacts with Kislyak in 2016 did not have to be revealed to the FBI on his SF-86 security clearance application, part of his confirmation process.
Sessions has repeatedly denied that he talked about the campaign with the Russian, but critics have continued to question his decision to not list them on his SF-86, which contains a box to check for contacts.
The email confirms statements from Justice staffers that Sessions did not need to check the foreign contacts box.
It does not list any name, but the “From” line reads “FBI.” It is dated March 7, 2017.
The email references a question asked by Sessions aide Peggi Hanrahan about previously asking if the attorney general needed to list is foreign contacts on the SF-86.
While the FBI official didn’t recall any prior discussions, the email said Sessions did the right thing.
“For the purposes of the SF-86, he was not required to list foreign government contacts while on official government business unless he developed personal relationships from such contacts,” said the FBI official in the email.
Why you might ask?
This email provides cover for Attorney General Sessions and his ability to do the unthinkable:
Un-recuse himself from the Russian investigation.
While this might not seem like a big deal today, the FBI under DoJ’s supervision which includes Hillary cronies like McCabe and Rosenstein still basically just cleared Jeff Sessions of any involvement from the criminal side of the case that Mueller is allegedly investigating.
Since Jeff Sessions has been harangued by President Trump for his withdrawing from the case originally, now Sessions can offer a trade to President Trump after the tax reform is passed and signed and the calendar shifts to 2018.
Attorney General Sessions can un-recuse himself from the investigation, fire Mueller and his staff and place the investigation under a trusted US Prosecutor who will not abuse the process.
In exchange for his sacrificing himself on the sword, President Trump will allow Sessions to resign during the Easter break in 2018 and the investigation will turn towards the activities of the Hillary and Obama embeds in DoJ who behaved in obvious violation of U.S. law.
This might seem like a longshot but based on the activities of the administration and actions by Mueller’s team, it appears that the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard has stumbled on to a bombshell which may not be recognized until next year. IF this does not happen, Trump’s regime is in trouble due to his paranoia and sometimes Nixonian mentality.
