A Tight and Tangled ‘Collusion’ Web
American Greatness, by Roger Kimball

Posted By:earlybird, 3/10/2019 10:56:55 AM

Most people reading this will know Sir Walter Scott’s famous couplet (Snip) Oh, what a tangled web we weave When first we practise to deceive! Less well known, but undeservedly so, is the excellent completing couplet by J. R. Pope, published under the sly title “A Word of Encouragement”: But when we’ve practiced for a while, How vastly we improve our style! Indeed. You really have to give it to the suits in Barack Obama’s intelligence services and Department of Justice (many of whom, of course, are still strutting about in Donald Trump’s administration). It was quite a web they

FTA: "It wouldn’t surprise me at all if impeachment documents were drawn up. It would surprise me greatly were they taken seriously. The chance of their passing the Senate with a two-thirds majority are vanishingly small."

This is NOT about getting a Senate conviction of PDT on whatever charges are in the Bill of Impeachment. Was Nixon convicted of anything? (No, he was not.) And that´s the goal of this charade: Either Trump decides not to run for re-election, or he is made radioactive by this certain-to-pass Bill of Impeachment pending referral to the Senate, opening the door for challengers. Ol´ Mitch tells him that he may not have the votes to save him, and that somehow leaks...screaming headlines!

The next elections are 2020, a Presidential year. The GOPe wants Trump gone, too, but without dirtying their hands. They have white knight Sir Mitt and gun-grabbing MAGA Man Lindsey warming in the bullpen. The Uniparty Swamp wants his threat of their exposure ended.

The easiest way is to push Trump "voluntarily" off the 2020 ballot.

If that happens, rope sales will be through the roof, and a LOT of politicians are going to be elevated, no matter how much security they hire.

No, #4, he was not impeached...and he was not convicted of anything, either.

Let´s recall there was a three-article Bill of Impeachment that passed out of the Judiciary Committee, with six Republicans joining the Democrats. Soon after, Goldwater and Rhodes gave him the assessment that the House would vote impeachment and the Senate would convict. Nixon resigned...effectively the same result.

Think history cannot repeat?

Last month, Chris Buskirk wrote a column for the Spectator USA describing Representative Devin Nunes as “a hero of the Republic.” It was well-deserved praise. Nunes, a Republican Congressman from a rural district in California was, until January, chairman of the House Permanent Special Committee on Intelligence (he is now the ranking member). Nunes has worked tirelessly for more than two years to expose what our masters in deep-state Washington would bury from the glare of public scrutiny: the evidence that the entire Trump-Russian collusion narrative was a partisan effort, first, to undermine the Trump presidential

During a rather innocuous podcast discussion panel yesterday, one of President Trump’s personal lawyers Jay Sekulow mentioned the FBI had three FISA applications denied by the FISA court in 2016. [Podcast Here – Note comment at 25:05] The denials were always suspected; however, until now no-one in/around the administration has ever confirmed. Jay Sekulow did not expand on his statement and did not explain (Snip); however, if accurate this may explain the backstory to why FISA Judge Rudolph Contreras was recused. This issue has been nagging many people since the recusal notation in December 2017.

In March, Columbia Law Professor Katherine Franke took six of her students to Tijuana so they could assist migrants preparing to approach the border. They spent 10 days with the legal services group Al Otro Lado and for a first-hand look at a problem that may seem far away for many New Yorkers. First, she said she was surprised to see the "metered" system used at the Tijuana border by Customs and Border Protection. The agency will only take a limited number of migrants each day. As a result, those waiting to cross into San Diego maintain a list of names.
