Wrapping Up Russiagate — The Neverending Farce That Made Everyone Look Stupid

This is, once again, a no politics zone. Believe me, I will not be getting into political intrigue again. But since I did dedicate nearly 2 years of content on Trump, politics, and my hopes to one day see Hillary rot inside prison, I wanted to share a treatise of sorts with you — from Matt Taibbi, who is an unbelievable investigative journalist.

He’s left leaning of course, but he’s not stupid. In this article he documents the Russiagate probe in his grande stupidity and how it became this generations WMD.

The sequence of events in that second week of January, 2017 will now need to be heavily re-examined. We now know, from his own testimony, that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had some kind of role in helping CNN do its report, presumably by confirming part of the story, perhaps through an intermediary or two (there is some controversy over whom exactly was contacted, and when).

Why would real security officials litigate this grave matter through the media? Why were the world’s most powerful investigative agencies acting like they were trying to move a stock, pushing a private, unverified report that even Buzzfeed could see had factual issues? It made no sense at the time, and makes less now.

Enjoy.

    Reserving judgment. But for a baseless witchhunt, they sure did bust a lot of witches. POTUS hangs with a sleazy crowd, probably time to investigate again.

    The “Trump-is-a-Putin-tool” nutjob conspiracy theory has always been laughable …well, maybe not so laughable as it has helped launch us into a new cold war as a de-balled Trump tried to show his anti-Russian macho by flailing around against Russian interests in Ukraine, the Black Sea, Syria, INF, pipelines, etc. Anyway, Is there any group of people who have ever lived who are stupider than Colbert’s …or Maher’s studio audiences?

    However, anyone following the news can see that Trump is indeed a tool of a foreign power …of Netanyahu and his Likud.
