Some questions after the memo

leave a comment »

Chris Buskirk has a few questions now that the memo has been released:

1) What role did Hillary Clinton play?
2) Was Attorney General Loretta Lynch involved with these efforts to surveil associates of the Trump campaign and, if so, to what extent?
3) We know that Susan Rice and Samantha Power were both involved in unmasking the names of U.S. citizens who were being targeted in this surveillance. Were they coordinating with elements within the FBI and/or the Justice Department? Were they coordinating with the DNC and Clinton campaign to give Hillary an electoral advantage?
4) What did Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton really discuss during their tarmac meeting in Phoenix on June 27, 2016.
5) Did Barack Obama know about and/or participate in a conspiracy to use the police and surveillance powers of the federal government to undermine Donald Trump and rig the presidential election? Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) wants to see Obama and Clinton’s emails.
6) Who else was at the meeting attended by McCabe, Strozk, and Page where they discussed an “insurance policy” against Trump’s election? How often did they meet, where did they meet, and what did they discuss?
7) Why couldn’t the FBI, which touts its forensic expertise, locate the Strozk-Page texts but the Inspector General did it in two days?
8) What is the “insurance policy” Strozk and Page discussed? Is that a reference to the conspiracy itself?
9) To whom in the media did the FBI leak information about their Trump spying? How long and how extensive was this disinformation campaign.
10) What discussions took place among Justice Department resisters about refusing to obey Trump’s direction as president?

Well, let’s find out some answers.

The memo raises several questions

leave a comment »

Here are two key points of the memo, according to Power Line:   

The fake “dossier” compiled by Christopher Steele with the assistance of unknown Russians “formed an essential part of the Carter Page FISA application. 
In fact, McCabe testified before the committee that no FISA warrant would have been sought without the fake dossier. 
Steele was paid over $160,000 by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign to come up with derogatory information–true or false, apparently–on Donald Trump.
DOJ and FBI failed to mention in their FISA application that it was based on opposition research paid for by the Clinton campaign and the DNC, even though this apparently was known to the FBI. 

This is very serious.   

My guess is that the partisanship will drive this to an independent counsel.

Remember the one about “the blue wave”?

Remember the one about “the blue wave”?   

Nate Cohn of New York Times raises an interesting question in this headline:  

“Last month it seemed that Democrats might ride a giant tsunami to control of the House and Senate. Now, some are wondering whether there’s a Democratic wave at all.”

As I’ve posted before, it’s too early in February to predict November’s election results.   However, it is not too early to say that all of the talk about “the blue wave” is very premature.

Wait until summer.
