The “what we already knew was happening” memo was released last Friday. As I read the content of the memo, my mind was boggled. I tried to comprehend how we could have gotten this far away from our values and the rule of law. My entire life I strived to be a good citizen. I am careful not to associate with shady characters or do things I know to be wrong, much less illegal. I remember as a kid being terrified of being arrested. This kept me honest growing up, and those qualities followed me to adulthood.
I grew up in Miami in the 80s. I lived through the scandal that set the City of Miami Police Department on fire. It was as if South Florida was living through a real life Scarface movie. A time when drug cartels were powerful to the level of infesting even police departments with corruption and cover-ups. My parents had a friend whose son was a City of Miami police officer. He was arrested during the Miami River Cops sweep that was the fall of many police officers in the City of Miami. As they perp walked him on television, I remember thinking I grew up with that guy, he was a nice kid… what happened? The lure of money and power?
On a national level, our elected officials and national security agencies seemingly work against the very people whose tax dollars keep the doors of those agencies open, you and me. The FBI and DOJ have been outed on corruption charges at the highest levels. The NSA spying on Americans, Senior level FBI agents eavesdropping on a duly elected President, and incoming cabinet members. DOJ officials lying to obtain FISA warrants to spy on candidate and then President-elect Trump, all paid for by the Clinton cartel, I mean campaign.
Interestingly, there is one constant in this entire FISA fiasco, two officials who have been destroying the FBI for decades Comey and Mueller. These two have been taking a wrecking ball to the FBI since the Bush Jr. administration. Looking back, these two were directly linked to botching up the post 9/11 anthrax investigation, even charging the wrong person for the crime, Stephen Hatfill; when the real perp was Bruce Ivins. Mueller and Comey oversaw this case.
Yet, here they are drawing salaries and pensions while collaborating with others in the FBI, DOJ and even the NSA to take down President Donald J. Trump. A president elected by We the People. Think about that folks, senior levels of the FBI colluded to interfere with the 2016 Presidential election and that is a fact; thankfully their bidding did not bear fruit. The wave of Americans going to the electorate to keep Hillary Clinton out of office was monumental.
Will we see Comey, Mueller, Ohr, McCabe, Rosenstein, Yates, Lynch, Strzok, Page, Clintons, even Obama perp-walked on national television? How about Steele, an ex-spy of the British government (who despises Trump) and his collusion with Clinton and the DNC to affect the outcome of the 2016 election. It is the leadership of the FBI under Comey and McCabe who used a dossier filled with Russian misinformation to secure a FISA warrant and wire-tap the Trump administration. Do you see any reason why any of these characters should not be brought up on charges and prosecuted just as anyone else who would violate the law?
The wheels of justice churn slowly it seems, especially when there are elites at the bench, I will be watching, but I won’t hold my breath.
