Tick Tock

By Patrick Van Roy On October 11th, 2020

In mid-2016, the FBI got word that Russian intelligence believed Hillary Clinton’s campaign was planning to frame Donald Trump as colluding with Russia’s Vladimir Putin to hack her computers. Yet somehow, the crack agents never connected the dots when handed the Steele “dossier” commissioned and paid for by the Clinton campaign that claimed Trump was colluding with Putin.  Nor did it connect the dots to another “Russiagate” lead, the third-hand rumors passed along by a Clinton-allied diplomat that supposedly implicated another Trump aide, George Papadopoulos.

Instead, the Justice Department used that dossier as a pretext to spy on at least Trump aide Carter Page as it investigated the clearly spurious charges. Justice also distorted the facts about Page’s past relations with the CIA to suggest he had a history of working with Russian agents when his actual record involved turning them in. Meanwhile, it buried the fact that Steele’s main source was himself a suspected Russian agent.

  1. How many times can you beat a dead horse.

    I know you love these conspiracy theories but give it a rest or form a bubble with allen, you too can spend hours on skype telling each other fairy tales

  2. Yawn

    Trying to win in 2020 on the back of conspiracy theories from 2016. You guys must be really desperate. You know that you are heading for a big defeat and your only hope will be the SCOTUS.

    But you will have a good shot there for sure, even if you lose the College by 60-40. That’s why you really need whatsername every sperm is sacred to be rushed through this week. You denied Obama’s pick for 11 months in 2016 but you will rush through this one in two weeks. Gross hypocrisy, even by GOP hypocrisy standards.

    Watch out if the Dems get the senate. What goes around comes around. Why not a SCOTUS of 20 and an end to filibusters and two more states? You will have brought it on yourselves.

  3. Cornered and desperate president keeps lying and Patrick believes every word

  4. Trump tells lies? Who knew? They never mention it on Fox. But maybe that’s because they tell lies too?

  5. How many times can you beat a dead horse.

    HA HA HA HA!

    Years they spent pushing hoax. Every days for years the Dems and the media pushed this obvious and blatant hoax. That was the dead horse and it was dead on arrival in 2016.

    Yes, it was an obvious hoax and regulars in here (hi Phantom) know that I called it a hoax from the very start. Others went with it because they wanted it to be true. They were duped and lied to willingly. Millions believed the greatest media hoax because they weren’t thinking.

    No-one gets to just forget that they were wrong all along, and the Dems and the media will never be allowed to forget the terrible crimes they committed.

  6. What did the major media report that was not correct on this?

    Do you have any direct ” fake news ” quotes to share with us.

    Patrick has come up empty on this for years, but maybe you have something to share.

    Was there no reason to believe that Trump campaign officials were speaking with Russian intelligence in 2016? Please answer carefully.

    New: Department of Justice “unmasking” probe commissioned by Barr and encouraged by Trump fizzles. No charges or public report expected.


    Every word of this ” scandal ” over the years has been complete bullshit.

  9. I can’t buy it, since you’ve purchased it already.

  10. every rivet…….

  11. bad news for pat , this issue is officially OVER
    For a few years now, Donald Trump has been insisting that then-President Obama, then-Vice President Joe Biden, and others “illegally” unmasked Michael Flynn in U.S. intel reports during the transition period. To that end, Trump had Bill Barr launch a lengthy probe into this supposed unmasking scandal, in the hope of ginning up some kind of criminal scandal for Obama and Biden.

    But now the U.S. Attorney assigned to the investigation has found no real wrongdoing, and has completed his work without bring any criminal charges against any Obama people, or even a report detailing any supposed wrongdoing, according to the Washington Post. This isn’t surprising, because there was nothing to find. But it shows that Barr simply doesn’t have the muscle to twist U.S. Attorneys’ arms into bringing sham criminal charges.

    Over the past week Donald Trump has repeatedly chastised Bill Barr on Twitter for having failed to arrest any of Trump’s political adversaries. Now that Barr has officially failed Trump yet again in this regard, we’ll see how Trump lashes out in response. But the pattern is more clear than ever that Barr is either a highly inept henchman, or he’s merely been selling Trump a bill of goods all this time without really sticking his neck out.
