A new special counsel should be appointed

By April 1, 2019Politics

Now it’s time to investigate the investigators.

It’s become abundantly clear there was a conspiracy waged against a sitting U.S. president now that the Robert Mueller investigation has confirmed the Russia collusion hoax was just that — a hoax — manufactured by a witches’ brew of Democrats including Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, the Democratic National Committee, Obama deep state officials and a complicit media seeking to derail the Trump administration.

The interference began as an attempt first to “stop Trump” from getting elected, as former FBI agent Peter Strzok said in a text message, since uncovered, to his lover during the 2016 election. When that failed, Trump’s enemies attempted to delegitimize and ultimately remove a duly-elected president.

Now we learn that after an exhaustive 22-month special counsel probe, there was no collusion between Donald Trump or his campaign with Russia. You can bet if there was any criminal wrong-doing, Mueller and his henchmen would’ve found it and brought indictments.

The question now becomes, when is House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s raid coming? How about predawn arrests for former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Strzok, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, former CIA spook John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and other Obama administration deep state officials who partook in the conspiracy to nullify a U.S. presidential election?

Will these corrupt actors who sowed enormous discord and distrust our democracy be treated the same as Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, lawyer Michael Cohen and adviser Roger Stone, who were subjected to heavy-handed raids by the feds at their homes and offices?

We’re talking SWAT team raids equipped with amphibious vehicles, helicopters and CNN hovering nearby to capture all the action — all part of an effort to smear the Trump administration.

Then there’s former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and others who signed off on deceptive FISA warrants to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page as a ruse to infiltrate the Trump campaign. There’s Justice Department official Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie, Fusion GPS, Hillary’s 2016 campaign and the DNC that commissioned the dirty dossier — using Russian informants — that was then used to launch multiple investigations against Trump, his family and campaign associates.

When are their raids coming?

They all were complicit in destabilizing our political system by allowing discredited opposition research crafted by foreign agents to upend our Democracy.

Attorney General Bill Barr must heed Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Lindsay Graham’s call for the appointment of a new special counsel to investigate the investigators and hold bad actors to account. A failure to do so will forever tarnish the integrity of the Department of Justice and jeopardize future U.S. elections.

Mr. Barr, we just can’t have that.
