We now know who's lying and it isn't Trump
Take a deep breath and think about the evidence

We now have a boatload of evidence that points to one certainty -- "deep state" Democrat campaign operatives within the Obama administration committed treasonous criminal acts they thought would never come to light because they were so certain Hillary Clinton would win in November 2016. Remember the post-election shock and awe of the delusional Clinton supporters? Those "deep state" operatives in highly placed positions of the Obama administration who were in on the collusion were suddenly exposed to criminal prosecution if their activities were to be uncovered.

When the reality of Hillary Clinton's big loss in November 2016 began to settle in, among those who were most shocked by the election were the criminal conspirators inside the Obama administration who had worked doggedly during the campaign to cover up a slew of illegal acts committed by Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State.

In addition to providing cover for Clinton and derailing their own "investigation" of her criminal acts that were so brazen that knowledge of them could not be kept out of the campaign, these conspirators set about to create a "story" that would allow them to take down Donald Trump should he manage to win the election. They inserted at least one spy (informant) inside the Trump campaign, they abused the FISC court by using fake "evidence" to illegally obtain FISA warrants to "unmask" members of the Trump campaign to create the illusion of a legitimate "investigation", and they paid foreign agents to create false information and give them an excuse to claim a connection between Russia and the Trump campaign. This was the "Plan B" that Clinton operatives within the Obama administration created with Barack Obama's full knowledge (as testified to by text messages between co-conspirators).

Even the Democratic National Committee (DNC) did their part by making a false claim that their computers had been hacked. We know the claim is false because the DNC adamantly refused to allow any federal agency access to their computer to make a determination who may have been responsible. The claim was made so that conspirators could plant a story that somehow "Russia" had attempted to affect the 2016 election and hacking the DNC computer was just part of that scheme. So the story became, "Russia hacked the DNC computer" when there is no evidence whatsoever that anyone had hacked the DNC computer. Except, if Russia had been interested in hacking the computers of political parties to affect an election, they would have hacked both the DNC and the Republican National Committee (RNC) computers. But the RNC computers were never hacked.

As soon as the shock of Clinton's loss subsided sufficiently to break their emotional paralysis, these criminal conspirators recovered their composure sufficiently to launch their carefully orchestrated "Plan B" -- the operation designed to (1) divert attention from Clinton's criminal acts, (2) work to bring down the newly-elected President Trump, (3) allow the manic-DNC propaganda organ, aka, "news media" to have cover for their onslaught against the newly-elected President, and, (4) provide "grounds" for a Special Counsel to be created with one of their co-conspirators named as Special Counsel to ensure the "investigation" drag on sufficiently in the hopes it would help energize Democrat voters in the mid-term elections.

The chronology of unfolding "Plan B" events:

  • So long as James Comey remained FBI Director, the "deep state" conspirators could work to cover their trail while preparing for the possibility that Comey was replaced. Having neutered the new Attorney General by convincing him he had to recuse himself from anything remotely connected to allegations of Russian collusion that had been carefully leaked to the media, everything was in place to begin the colluders' offensive to mount their silent coup.
  • When everything was in place, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and the nearly invisible AG-in-hiding both recommended to the President that he replace James Comey. Comey had already "set the table" with his contentious meeting with the President.
  • Comey was fired and he set "Plan B" in motion leaking his storyline to the media through a fellow operative.
  • Meanwhile, President Trump interviews candidates to replace Comey. Rod Rosenstein accompanies Robert Mueller to interview for the job of FBI Director. With Comey gone, replacing him with co-conspirator Mueller might be sufficient to prevent the reopening of investigations of Hillary Clinton's many criminal acts that Comey had carefully squashed.
  • When Mueller was not selected, the "deep state" operatives immediately launched their covert contingency plan. Rod Rosenstein appointed Mr. Mueller Special Counsel, ostensibly under Department of Justice (DoJ) rules for doing so. In fact, Rosenstein had no legitimate evidence upon which to appoint any Special Counsel, but that didn't matter because the "deep state" knew with the neutered Sessions being handled by Rosenstein, it could stonewall every attempt to expose their treasonous activities. Their only objectives were to shield Clinton from any reopening of an investigation into her criminal activities and to keep a high profile Special Counsel "investigation" going until the mid-term election cycle so that the Democrat Party could whip up sufficient enthusiasm to (1) win control of the House of Representatives (and then impeach the President, regardless of the evidence), and (2) protect as many vulnerable Senate seats as possible.
  • You see, it's really all about the increasingly radicalized "Left" in the Left-lurching Democrat Party seizing control of the government by any means ("the end justifies the means") after the people had the temerity to express their desire for change by throwing the Left out of power in the 2016 election.
  • While these events were unfolding, Democrats in the Senate (with the aid of a compliant Republican Senate Majority Leader) were stonewalling Trump nominees to fill judicial and administrative positions in a brazen attempt to prevent the Trump administration from operating as efficiently as it could and to preserve as many operatives of the "deep state" in positions where they could be useful.
  • As the Mueller investigation proceeded, Senate oversight committees became more active as it quickly became apparent that Mueller had no real evidence of any collusion with Russians by the Trump campaign to affect the 2016 election..
  • What began to unfold was not Trump campaign collusion, it was solid evidence that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee had, indeed, colluded with a foreign agent to pay for the creation of a fake dossier claiming certain connections between the President and some Russians. By the way, there is no federal law against "collusion". If there were, the Clinton campaign and DNC would be susceptible to criminal investigation for their collusion with foreign agents to create the fake dossier used to illegally obtain FISA warrants
  • We also learned that the basis for the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) allowing the Obama administration to "unmask" American citizens who were part of the Trump campaign was, indeed, that Clinton-DNC bought and paid for collusion with foreign agents that was without any merit. The cabal of losers who had conspired to create this "Plan B" had put these events in place as "insurance" in the event Donald J. Trump was elected in 2016. That cabal of losers appears to include the highest members of (1) intelligence agencies (e.g., Brennan, Clapper, et al), (2) the DoJ (e.g., Lynch, Rosenstein, Yates, et al), (3) the FBI (e.g., Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, et al) and, (4) high echelon personnel within the State Department.
  • Mr. Mueller packed his investigative staff with people of dubious background including Andrew Weissmann, known for his unethical activities during the Enron investigation, and co-conspirators Peter Strzok and Lisa Page who were both let go by Mueller when it became public knowledge that they were deeply involved with setting up the "Plan B" contingency.
  • As time dragged on with no real revelations of Trump campaign improprieties, oversight committees of Congress demanded information because there was increasing concern about whether a legitimate basis for naming a Special Counsel existed and, in any event, Mueller's long-time close relation with both Rod Rosenstein and James Comey and Mueller's past position as FBI Director while Clinton was Secretary of State presented more than adequate grounds for Mueller recusing himself from being Special Counsel on the basis of conflicts of interest.
  • For more than a year, as oversight committees have been consistently blocked in their effort to get to information that would bring some clarity to this ongoing unproductive Special Counsel (who refused, as required by law, to acknowledge his severe conflicts of interest), they have had to put up with stonewalling in the form of "slow-walking" and highly redacted material that, when unredacted, should never have been redacted in the first place.
  • Throughout this time, President Trump has maintained there was no collusion and has been fully cooperative with Special Counsel legitimate requests for documentation related to their investigation. In short, the Trump administration has been open and compliant with requests for relevant information by the Special Counsel.

A reasonable person would look at the evidence and clearly see a seditious campaign orchestrated by the manic Leftist media to agitate the electorate, claiming President Trump should be impeached.

A reasonable person would clearly see a concerted deliberately drawn-out effort to (1) delay compliance with requests from congressional oversight committees to produce key information, (2) redact any incriminating evidence contained within requested documents before they are finally turned over under threat of congressional impeachment and, (3) prevent any revelation of key material underlying the appointment of a Special Counsel that would render the appointment null and void.

A reasonable person would realize that, (1) having wire-tapped the Trump campaign, (2) having surveilled key members of the Trump campaign, (3) having planted an informant or two within the Trump campaign, if there had actually been "collusion with the Russians" there would have been ample evidence of that collusion from the product of those assets to have quickly wrapped up an investigation into illegal activities of the Trump campaign. Yet after all that plus another year of "investigations" there is nothing.

A reasonable person would expect that with all the leaking going on to subvert the Trump administration, that there would have been damaging leaks revealing any unsavory activity of the Trump campaign. But there was not.

Consider how this charade of an investigation has played out.

Who has been forthright by promptly producing materials requested by the Special Counsel? President Trump.

Who has been stonewalling and redacting key provisions of materials requested by congressional oversight committees? The DoJ and the FBI.

Who has asked for a speedy end to this "witch hunt" that has produced ZERO evidence of any crime by the Trump campaign or President Trump himself? President Trump.

Who has dragged this nonsense out for well over a year by obstructing every effort by congressional oversight committees to obtain key information concerning the legitimacy of (1) the allegations that spawned the creating of the Special Counsel, and, (2) possible criminal activity to obtain FISA warrants on the basis of unverified material whose provenance was withheld from a FISC judge awarding the FISA warrants? The DoJ.

Who has stood idly by while torrents of evidence have emerged that clearly demonstrate Hillary Clinton violated a host of federal laws by (1) using unauthorized insecure personal email servers for most of her four-year term as Secretary of State, (2) handling many dozens of classified email messages, including those at the highest classification (TOP SECRET SAP and TOP SECRET Compartmented) that should never have been made electronic for email distribution (someone in the Clinton office broke national security law by illegally obtaining highly classified papers, illegally scanning them to make electronic copies, and then illegally emailing them to a nonsecure personal email server!), (3) destroying tens of thousands of emails and related computer equipment under subpeona in an act not only of obstruction of justice but of defiance of justice, (4) running a pay-to-play scheme while Secretary of State, selling favors to foreign interests in exchange for massive "donations" to the Clinton Foundation (a cash cow for the Clintons and their loyal "associates" that gave a relative pittance to those it claimed to be helping)? Attorney General Sessions, who has positioned himself to become the greatest traitor to his oath of office of any Attorney General in this nation's history. That is a tall order given the two who preceded Mr. Sessions, both of whom participated in multiple criminal acts themselves. It is an act of utter disregard to our nation's sense of justice and the responsibilities of his office and duty to protect and defend our Constitution when AG Sessions continues to allow this compromised witch hunt to continue given the enormous body of evidence that testifies to it as being illegitimate and designed to be nothing more than an aid to elect Democrats during the mid-term elections.

Who was responsible for (1) sheparding the Clinton email investigation to a "nothing to see here" conclusion to prevent Clinton from being arrested, convicted, and sent to jail for most of the rest of her natural life based on her well-documented criminal activities, (2) shutting down the investigation into Clinton's pay-to-play scheme while she was Secretary of State, a scheme designed to enrich The Clinton Foundation, a cash cow for the Clintons and their associates, (3) surveilling without proper authority by wire-tapping and inserting at least one spy into the Trump campaign to develop the "Plan B" scheme in the event Donald J. Trump defeated Hillary R. Clinton in November 2016, (4) in violation of federal law, leaking sensitive government information while serving as FBI Director? The infamous James Comey, a man who has indelibly stained the FBI's reputation for generations to come, possibly going down in history as the very worst person to serve as FBI Director in this nation's history.

I could go on and on, documenting who is being open, honest, and forthright and who is obstructing congressional oversight, improperly redacting incrimnating evidence, covering gross misconduct and violations of federal law by a host of Obama appointees, but if anyone doesn't have a clear picture by now, they either are entirely detached from what has transpired over the past three years, or they are suffering from a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, a form of self-delusion precipitated by those whose hubris has grown to such monumental proportions they begin to believe their own lies and propaganda.

Reasonable people do not continue to desperately cling to manufactured justifications for this ongoing travesty of justice known as the Special Counsel investigation by the corrupt contingent of partisan "investigators" working for Robert Mueller.

No sane reasonable person could ignore the partisan nature of Mueller's severely tainted operation.

There is neither a reasonable nor legitimate basis for claiming this concocted witch hunt should be allowed to continue.

It's time to put a stop to this nonsense. Without a moment's delay!

Let's focus on the real criminal activity of the Obama administration henchmen who worked diligently (and illegally) to try to secure the election of Hillary Rodham Clinton, a known criminal as James Comey so carefully itemized on July 5, 2016.

Biography - Bob Webster

Bob Webster, a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.

A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
