Trump’s Espionage? Washington DC and the Pundits Won’t Talk About This

quote:

Reading all the professional political chatter from both wings of the uniparty bird about the DOJ position on the Trump raid in Mar-a-Lago, something sticks out to me that readers here will relate to, but others, likely not so much. Consider this written to all the reasonable and intellectually honest people.

You see, there is an actual mechanism that is being ignored by members within the professional DC silos and the DC ‘outrage’ stenographers. I was reminded of it when reading the professional obfuscation in the Wall Street Journal as they outlined how Merrick Garland “weighed the raid on Mar-a-Lago for several weeks” prior to August 8.

Technically there is a mechanism for executive branch conflict resolution that involves actual transparency, not the political talking points of the illusion of transparency. However, when the Fourth Branch of Government was created, the conflict resolution measure that provides oversight and escape from accusations of unequal application of law was dispatched. It was dispatched because, well, the unequal application of the law was the intent.

What I am talking about is the legislative branch oversight mechanism known as the Gang-of-Eight. Whenever the executive branch runs into a conflict that involves sensitivity within an issue they define as “national security,” the executive branch is supposed to use the tool of the legislative branch to extricate themselves from the conflict.

Quite simply the DOJ/FBI could have briefed the Go8 on the nature of the sensitive ‘national security’ issue, and this bipartisan briefing to both democrats and republicans removes Main Justice from the appearance of political impropriety. If, later on, the nature of their investigation is ever questioned, Main Justice (the representatives of the executive branch) have the shield of telling the American public that congress was notified.

That is essentially the intent of the Gang of Eight construct. Leaders and key officials within both parties are informed of ongoing investigative activity that involves the national security of the United States. That’s the mechanism for the DOJ and FBI to avoid the appearance of political targeting.



quote:

If AG Merrick Garland and FBI Director Chris Wray wanted to avoid what Wray has previously called, “even the impression of impropriety,” the DOJ could simply have briefed congress on the issues and challenges related to President Trump and their perceived problem with classified documents.

The reality of Main Justice not seeking to avoid their conflict, stands as a stark reminder that they consider the mechanism of oversight as a risk to their intent.

The absence of congressional notification is evidence that the targeting by Main Justice is political.

The DOJ didn't even notify the Gang of 8.

If it was about certain sensitive docs they would have went in a got what they wanted and left instead of grabbing everything like an Antifa Target raid.

How many time are you going to believe Trumps lies? He was subpoenaed for the documents and tied to pull a fast one by only returning some of the boxes.

Plausible deniability for the Go8, most of which are perfectly fine with torpedoing Trump.

They didn’t have to. These 8 told them to.

You would have just accused the Gang of Eight of sanctioning a political hit

Isn't the article saying Comey kept the G8 out of Crossfire Hurricane mostly?

But now, Garland weighing this Trump raid 'matter' for weeks. The G8 was notified to give him cover?



It matters not. I don't trust any of them.

You are aware of the FBIs history with trump right? Trump is the person who you should be calling “liar”.

You mean after Blixt was allowed into MAL and reviewed everything Trump had left and simply requested they be stored in a more secure place? You were aware of that, right? I mean the Fing New York Times Acknowledged it today.
