The jigsaw puzzle is taking shape

© 2019 Jim Spence -  It’s all starting to really make sense now. The Russian Collusion narrative was a smoke screen all along. It is now turning out to be, along with the impeachment farce, part of a coordinated cover-up strategy. This will wind up being arguably, the biggest political scam ever foisted on the American public. In the days, weeks, and months ahead, former high-ranking officials in the Obama law enforcement and intelligence agencies will shift into extreme damage control modes. It is already happening.
Observing this political theater has been like putting together a jigsaw puzzle that winds up being an ugly picture nobody wants to look at. As the picture gradually takes shape, those of us who have been trying to get all the pieces in the right spots, have become more and more disgusted with just how maniacally corrupt the appointees in the Obama administration were.
The timeline of this scam, which includes this incredible impeachment con game, can be made complex or simple. Let’s simplify the timeline.

  1. Hillary Clinton used an unsecured server in direct violation of the law.
  2. What happened to Clinton explains why what she did was against the law. Her server was hacked, and her classified emails fell into the hands of Russian agents.
  3. It didn’t take long for many unsavory facts to surface. The Clintons were screwing Bernie Sanders silly in the primaries and Barack Obama was sending emails to Clinton's illegal server using a pseudo name.
  4. Once it became clear that Donald Trump would become the GOP nominee, literally an army of self-assured bureaucrats in the Obama administration began plotting ways to trip up Trump and damage him. There was direct assistance from the DNC and Clinton campaign given to the CIA and FBI. 
  5. These agencies leaked false information to the press. 
  6. And worse yet, the FBI lied to the FISA court judges to obtain what they thought was legal permission to conduct electronic surveillance on the Trump campaign.

All of these things happened because of an attitude in the Obama White House that mirrored that of the Nixon White House. And nobody thought any of these criminal activities would see the light of day because of course……Hillary Clinton was going beat Trump easily.
Can you imagine the Oh My God moments being experienced by people in the FBI, CIA, Obama White House and Democrat friendly press, when Trump was declared the winner of the 2016 election?
Within this context, the behavior of Democrats ever since November of 2016, finally makes perfect sense. The hatred of Trump has been over the top and naked for three years and running for good reason. Intelligence agency leaders like John Brennan and James Clapper have been downright belligerent. Their actions and words have been way too emotional to make any sense without this context. What is really going on is these men have been and will continue to be fighting to stay out of prison. The same is true of Andrew McCabe and James Comey. They know their lies are unraveling.
So serious was the danger of this situation, that John Brennan and James Clapper went on angry speaking tours to accuse Trump falsely. They did so all the time knowing that they were playing defense with a strong offensive, against Trump. Now McCabe, Comey, Clapper, and Brennan are hanging by a thread thanks to the fact that the Inspector General’s Report appears to be redacted to protect the links of this scandal to the intelligence community. After all, life goes in in the espionage business despite the fact Brennan and Clapper were manipulating domestic politics for their preferred outcomes instead of protecting the nation from foreign spying operations.
It is FINALLY difficult for reporters like CNN's Wolf Blitzer and others to continue to ignore the harsh rebuke of the FBI leadership, by the internal watchdog Inspector General. Andrew McCabe, who believe it or not is actually on the CNN payroll instead of in jail, was hauled into the CNN studios for an interview earlier this week to do some explaining.

“Jim Comey said it was sloppiness. This wasn’t just sloppiness. These were brutal mistakes, deliberate errors, concealments involving surveillance activities of an American citizen,” Blitzer said to McCabe.
McCabe, who originally and similar to Comey, outrageously claimed the I.G. report exonerated him, was not going to get away with this preposterous lie with Blitzer. Predictably, McCabe pivoted and threw his underlings under the bus in an effort to stay clear of obvious implications that he is a crook too. McCabe actually signed one of the four fraudulent FISA warrant applications. Feigning surprise, McCabe said he was “shocked” by the I.G.’s findings. He also said his biggest mistake was delegating the process to his subordinates. “The biggest mistake, I think, is the process that was in place essentially left so much responsibility on the lowest level of FBI agents and supervisors involved in a process that once those mistakes are baked in they become very, very hard for the many, many layers of oversight to uncover.” Blame shifting pure and simple. Underlings are not allowed to spy on the political opposition without the knowledge of the chiefs at the FBI. More bunk from McCabe.
This is just the beginning. By the time the criminal investigation phase of this scandal is over, expect everyone implicated to blame other Obama appointees and pretend their hands somehow remain clean. No doubt much of the Democrat-friendly media will try to provide cover.
In the meantime, the judges who were lied to by McCabe and Comey are mad as hell. On Tuesday, Judge Rosemary Collyer, who presides over the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), castigated the FBI in no uncertain terms for providing “false information” in applications to conduct electronic surveillance on the Trump campaign. In her stinging rebuke, Judge Collyer cited the Justice Department’s inspector general (IG) report findings. The FBI has until January 10, 2020 to make a submission to the court detailing what steps it is taking and plans it is making to make sure the claims in surveillance applications accurately reflect the facts in the FBI’s possession.
We should expect to see more expressions like those on the faces of Brennan and Clapper in this column to emerge as everyone involved in this scandal of all scandals gets implicated. The wheels of due process and justice will slowly turn in the weeks and months ahead, but the day of reckoning is coming. The impeachment proceedings are a grand diversion concocted by Democrats who saw this coming.
