By John Ubaldi, “Ubaldi Reports”
In a different time, political leaders in Washington would have been disgusted with the massive corruption at the DOJ, IRS and the FBI, but in the twisted political era we live in, this seems to be alright as along as the abuse goes against individuals we despise notably Donald Trump.
The dramatic and compelling testimony by Special Counsel John Durham who testified before Congress on his bombshell report how the FBI totally mishandled the alleged Russian collusion by Donald Trump in 2016, should shivers up the spine of all Americans, unfortunately it hasn’t.
Far too often Democrats consistently lecture Americans how Democracy is in peril, but these same Democrats who claim to protect our constitutional republic are the very ones who are threating its very existence.
The report laid out by Durham before the House Judiciary Committee where he testified that, “The FBI was too willing to accept and use politically funded and uncorroborated opposition research, such as the Steele dossier. The FBI relied on the dossier and FISA applications, knowing there was likely material originating from a political campaign or political opponent.”
What we learned was that a political campaign specifically the Clinton Campaign was perpetrating a major disinformation campaign by funneling false information to the FBI, accusing Trump of colluding with the Russians in order to deflect from Hillary Clinton’s classified email scandal.
The beginning of the Russian collusion investigation began and proceeded to its conclusion on the seventh floor headed by then-FBI Director James Comey and his immediate cohorts in both the FBI and the DOJ. The only piece of evidence the FBI and DOJ had and used was the Steele Dossier which was never corroborated! Without even trying to corroborate any aspect of the Steele Dossier the FBI and DOJ ran full steam ahead in its investigation of Trump based off this false and only piece of evidence.
The FBI then proceeded by falsifying a doctored Central Intelligence Agency email in which Carter Page a Trump campaign official was falsely accused of not being a CIA informant when in fact he had been one all along.
One only has to remember that Former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith, pleaded guilty to a false statement offense stemming from his altering of an email in connection with the submission of a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (“FISA”) application and lying to a federal judge about its authenticity. Then you have the Inspector General for the Department of Justice Michael Horowitz pulled 29 random FISA applications and found no evidence or miniscule evidence of the hundreds submitted, but no condemnation of the FBI and the DOJ from Democrats or the media.
All this information fed to the FBI came from the Clinton campaign, which the FBI jumped on without any reservation from the bureau that this came from a political campaign.
Durham told the House Judiciary Committee, “The FBI was too willing to accept and use politically funded and uncorroborated opposition research, such as the Steele dossier. The FBI relied on the dossier and FISA applications, knowing there was likely material originating from a political campaign or political opponent.”
In the summer of 2016 when the FBI was opening its case against Trump with no evidence, the bureau was closing its investigation on Clinton’s mishandling of classified materials with no charges despite mountains of evidence of her complicity.
Throughout Durham’s testimony he testified the “markedly different’ on the way the FBI handled the Clinton investigation compared how the bureau handled the investigation of Trump and how Democrats are treated with kid glove treatment to the vile nature Republicans are investigated.
Durham stated bluntly that the FBI had ample evidence in believing that all information they had on Trump came exclusively from the Clinton campaign’s opposition research and the bureau not only failed to verify its veracity they didn’t care to even begin to authenticate its origin.
Durham also reported another blockbuster revelation that the original head of Crossfire Hurricane the name associated with the Trump investigation was never shown any key details which pointed to the Clinton campaign as the source of all information, the agent involved Joe Pientka, was enraged by not being informed of this key detail!
Even with all this blatant corruption by the DJ and the FBI Democrats on the committee showed no curiosity and only attacked Durham as being a political hack and a stooge of Trump, despite receiving commendations from Janet Reno and Eric Holder both served as Democratic Attorney General under Democratic presidents.
What makes this even more repulsive is that CIA Director John Brennan having “realized the significance” that Clinton was planning and perpetrating a false narrative of Russian collusion by setting up Trump, “expeditiously” briefed then President Obama, then Vice President Biden, and other senior national security officials on this issue before the 2016 presidential election.
Why hasn’t Obama or Biden been asked about this? Ever since Trump won the 2016 presidential election he was falsely accused of colluding with Russia, why didn’t Obama or Biden stop this narrative when they knew it was false, plus it was put forth by Hillary Clinton and her campaign?
If this blatant corruption wasn’t despicable enough we learned from the House Ways and Means Committee this past Thursday regarding released testimony from two IRS whistleblowers who said the Justice Department, FBI and IRS interfered with the investigation of the tax evasion case against Hunter Biden.
Democrats instead standing up for the rule of law have resorted to attacking and demonizing the whistleblowers, it wasn’t too long ago that Democrats were adamant that whistleblowers should be protected when the rage was against Trump, but now that whistleblowers are aimed at President Biden and Democrats the tune is far different.
Committee Chairman Jason Smith, R-Mo., revealed the testimony “outlines misconduct and government abuse at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the investigation of Hunter Biden.”
“The allegations point to a steady campaign of: unequal treatment of enforcing tax law; Department of Justice interference in the form of delays, divulgences, and denials, into the investigation of tax crimes that may have been committed by the President’s son; and finally, retaliation against IRS employees who blew the whistle on the misconduct.”
This only a small sampling as this would take volumes to cover the blatant corruption and remember that those that claim to protect American Democracy are the very ones who are destroying America’s constitutional Republic!
