When the news broke yesterday that the DOJ investigation into the genesis of the RussiaGate hoax had shifted to a criminal investigation, the panic that arose from the news media was fun to watch. RussiaGate was a house of cards. And that house of cards is collapsing.
I think the biggest mistake the plotters made was assuming that Hillary Clinton would win in 2016 and therefore their attempt to interfere with the election would never see the light of day.
That confidence made them sloppy. These guys left a trail behind them like a slug on the sidewalk. And clearly the DOJ is having no problem following that trail.
But this house of cards is made up of far more than just their attempt to interfere with the 2016 election.
Because Donald Trump won.
And these guys knew they left a very easy-to-follow trail in their wake.
What’s the old saying? It isn’t just the crime; it’s the cover-up.
And how did they cover up their election interference?
By trying to destroy the man who defeated Clinton — all in hopes of hiding what they did.
What probably began as a well-crafted, carefully-guarded plot quickly turned into a desperate, ham-handed scramble.
They enlisted the help of Democrat politicians, members of the FBI and Intelligence Community. And in the stupidest move, they even brought the news media in on their plans.
In other words, the house of cards grew even bigger.
The more people you bring in to your conspiracy, the more likely it is the conspiracy will be exposed.
And it’s been exposed.
I don’t know how many of you know the story of David and Bathsheba from the Old Testament. But here goes.
Bathsheba was the beautiful wife of King David’s general Uriah.
While Uriah was at war, David became quite smitten with Bathsheba. So he slept with her.
And, as happens on occasion, Bathsheba became pregnant with David’s child.
Faced with a bit of problem, David arranges for Uriah to come back from the war in hopes of getting him to sleep with his wife to cover up the child’s paternity. But Uriah, loyal soldier that he was, returned, but refused to spend the night at home with his wife. Instead, he slept at the entrance to the palace.
Desperate to keep his affair with Bathsheba a secret, David had Uriah sent back to the war with instructions to put him in the heat of the battle hoping to get Uriah killed.
And it worked.
With Uriah dead, David marries Bathsheba.
And nobody was the wiser. Or so David thought.
Unfortunately for him, this house of cards that he built did not escape the notice of God. So God sends his prophet Nathan to David. And Nathan calls King David out for his sins.
It was the absolute low point of David’s life. And for good reason.
Read Psalm 51 and you will understand David’s anguish and shame.
It all starts with one corrupt move. Then that one corrupt move gets compounded by another and another and another.
Before long, the house of cards cannot withstand the weight of all that corruption – no matter how many people work to shore it up.
Eventually, as Shakespeare put it, the truth will out.
But like King David, the plotters are still scrambling to cover things up.
It’s too late. But what else can they do?
Democrats in Congress, pundits on cable news, compliant reporters from the major newspapers, and the plotters themselves are now seeking to destroy Attorney General Barr and John Durham.
I wonder how long before the builders of this house of cards use the word “lynching” to describe what’s happening.
This is the reason for the breakneck speed of the Soviet-style Shampeachment going on behind closed doors.
They know the house of cards is collapsing. So Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi are trying to beat the clock and get impeachment done before the collapse is complete.
As Julie Kelly points out in her column “Who Will Fall First? Trump or the ‘Praetorian Guard?’“
As Barr gets closer to the key people involved in concocting the phony Trump-Russia collusion hoax—which included the use of powerful surveillance tools and government informants—House Democrats are escalating efforts in their attempt to impeach Trump before Barr’s department starts issuing indictments. If Trump goes down before Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham, his point man on the investigation, can complete their work, that investigation could be completely discredited if not halted altogether as the by-product of an illegitimate presidency.
I think Julie Kelly is right.
This Shampeachment is the Hail Mary attempt to keep the house of cards from collapsing on top of everyone involved.
And their reasons for this Shampeachment are completely self-serving.
As Julie Kelly points out:
The outcome of the multiple lines of inquiry into the conduct of the modern-day Praetorian Guard likely will be very bad news for dozens of Democratic officials, including Joe Biden, who was involved in Brennan’s Situation Room briefings in 2016 about alleged “collusion” right up until Election Day. House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has been an integral part of the collusion hoax since its inception, which is why he is working overtime on his “impeachment inquiry” before he himself is implicated.
This is one reason why, despite the huffy outrage from the Well-I-Never-Trumpers, it’s good that the House Republicans are disrupting Schiff’s self-serving Star Chamber.
They know what Schiff is doing. And it has nothing to do with his “Constitutional duty” or holding the President to account.
It’s all part of the cover-up.
RussiaGate and its cover-up are about so much more than simply taking down a President they hate.
I’ve said before, it isn’t Trump they hate, they hate us. And they do not want the American people electing their own President.
This was, without question, an attempted coup.
Now the coup’s plotters are about to be held to account and they’re panicked and desperate.
Just like King David, these people will stop at nothing to hide their venal corruption in order to spare themselves the consequences of their actions.
And I imagine the builders of this house of cards are going to get a hell of a lot more desperate before this is over.
