Now that their President has been fully exonerated on charges of collusion, Republicans are looking to launch a counter-attack against Democrats.
While making an appearance on Fox News, Senator Lyndsey Graham (R-SC) stated, “Republicans believe that the FBI and [Department of Justice] – the top people – took the law in their own hands because they wanted [Hillary] Clinton to win and Trump to lose.”
Abuse of Power
To any neutral observer, something hinky was definitely going on in the Justice Department and FBI during the 2016 election season.
Hillary Clinton was faced with a mountain of evidence against her, yet she got off without so much as a slap on the wrist.
On the other hand, there wasn’t an ounce of evidence against Trump regarding collusion, but a special counsel was convened to undermine the presidency with the hopes of removing him from office outright.
For some reason, James Comey has been turned into somewhat of a folk hero among Democrats.
Keep in mind, Comey was the man that leaked confidential memos to the media and clearly influenced the Hillary investigation towards exonerating her.
Comey made the decision on his own not to indict Hillary because he personally did not feel a conviction could be had if the case were to go to trial.
As Comey announced his decision, legal pundits across the country were stunned he did not indict with the evidence he had and allow it to play out in court.
Comey is but one player that abused his power and position in this matter.
The real concentration of a new investigation can and probably will focus on the FISA warrants.
Once again, James Comey is a prominent player, as he allowed the Steele dossier to serve as an anchor to obtain the warrants.
Of note here is that Comey himself has gone on record to debunk the dossier.
We also now know the dossier was first sanctioned by an anti-Trump Republican and later picked up by the Hillary campaign as well as the DNC.
Furthermore, we know the dossier was created using a CNN search tool called iReport.
In essence, Comey used a report that was paid for by Trump’s opposition that used unverified, slanderous information about Trump.
It is the equivalent of using a supermarket tabloid to prosecute someone.
As Americans, we all need to seek justice in this to ensure it never happens again, to any president, on either side of the aisle.
The fact Democrats and their supporters were able to pull this off is astonishing, but it is even more astonishing there is not a larger call to bring all the players to justice.
