One thing about the limp-wristed, panty-waists of the GOP “leadership” is clear: they love—and I mean LOVE—to lose. It’s in their genes. Case in point is the point guard of the Washington Generals, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-LOSER), coming out in support of U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy’s (R-SC) mission to protect the #Resistance elements within the intelligence community.
As Politico reported, Ryan said he “had seen ‘no evidence’ to back Trump’s assertion that the FBI wrongfully planted a spy in his campaign.”
But as D.C. McAllister argues over at PJ Media, “One doesn’t have to be party to a secret intelligence meeting to ask some very legitimate questions about the FBI informant and have serious doubts about the conclusions drawn by Gowdy, Ryan, and the bobble-headed cabal of Democrats.”
For instance, the FBI snitch Stefan Halper actually approached Carter Page in June 2016—one month before the investigation began according to James Comey’s testimony before Congress. Comey claimed that he opened the case due to George Papadopoulos trying to obtain Hillary’s hacked emails from a Kremlin-linked professor. Of course, that entire pretext has since fallen apart. The professor, one Joseph Mifsud, was actually in bed with the Clinton Foundation—not the Kremlin. And he denies he told Papadopoulos anything about having the Clinton emails.
McAllister asks why the FBI used such intrusive methods on an advisor to a political campaign (and implicitly suggests the FBI broke their own guidelines in their over-the-top investigation). Finally, the FBI’s nonchalance about investigating the DNC servers compared to how they treated the Trump campaign rings all kinds of alarm bells:
The FBI was willing to dive into a sensitive matter investigation, risk violating privacy rights, risk losing public trust, risk an international incident by deploying a human source instead of a trained undercover agent overseas, yet they would not seek every legal avenue to examine the scene of the crime. What insanity is this?
But according to the denizens of the swamp, this was all done by the book. Nothing to see here. What a joke.
