#1 Not just in USA.

#2 The sheer magnitude of FisaGate with all its connections and tentacles is staggering--far larger than Watergate. FisaGate is an existential threat to our Republic and system of justice.

#3 Or that Carter Page worked for the FBI...

Something REALLY weird is up.

#4 We are now in the midst of a third great modern scandal. Members of the Obama administration’s Department of Justice sought court approval for the surveillance of Carter Page, allegedly for colluding with Russian interests, and extended the surveillance three times.

A hand picked court of nodding nabobs and pisslewinks.

#5 This is an extension of the technique known as 'pretexting'. Pretexting is used when the "law enforcement" people need an excuse for a prosecution, but can't get a legally defendable trail. So they use illegally gained knowledge (from let's say, a wiretap) to feed a source who will send confidential information back to them, allowing a paper trail to begin.
They've been doing it for years in drug smuggling arrests. You actually thought a random traffic stop just happened to come up with ten tons of pot?

..I'm not at all confident that a single one of these ba$tards will ever swing for their crimes, but let me suggest this: has anyone noticed how (relatively) quiet the Clinton and Obama teams have been on this? No ringing denials from the mountaintop? No rallies to support bringing down these falsehood-speaking Republicans? No nothing.

With that in mind - is it possible the Trump Administration has quietly put the word out that though we might not be able to get you for this...we know you did it. Keep your mouths shut and behave from here on out, or you may well discover that there are far, far worse things than Federal trial for treason and fraud.

Yes, on the advice of legal counsel no doubt. I am savoring the quiet interlude, and I still have my Robben Island dream foto.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
