As I said in a comment at the time, the hoax was time sensitive. Trying to work it up the ladder of the FBI bureaucracy wasn’t an option, because the bullsh*t was, er, palpable. As Strassel says, claims this ludicrous would never have made it past the first rung. She then brings in a host of slimey Deep State operatives:

And the powerful guys at the top continued to work their influence. Former CIA director John Brennan tipped Harry Reid to the collusion claims, prompting the Senate minority leader to write a letter that went public with the accusations. Mr. Comey engineered a Trump briefing in January 2017 that served as catalyst for BuzzFeed to publish the dossier. Mr. Comey secretly memorialized his privileged conservations [sic] with the president, later leaking these to provoke the appointment of his colleague and mentor Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate President Trump. All this was aided by the Beltway media, which ably served as scribes for their claims, and those of their buddies at Fusion GPS, some of whom formerly worked for the Journal.

The trial environment was no less intimate. Judge Christopher Cooper worked with Mr. Sussmann at the Clinton Justice Department in the 1990s. Merrick Garland, today attorney general, officiated at the judge’s marriage to Amy Jeffress, an Obama Justice Department official and now a private lawyer representing former FBI lawyer Lisa Page. And on and on the special circles go, down to the judge’s refusal to grant prosecutors’ request to dismiss a juror who admitted her daughter is on the same crew team as Mr. Sussmann’s child.

None of this—the special access, the abuse of power—would be granted to an average American, and it explains how the Clinton team was able to spiral a dirty trick into a national hysteria. If Washington institutions want to reclaim the public trust, they’ll first need to remember that the country is rooted in the notion of one set of rules for all. Not a special set for D.C. operators.

Now, in fairness to the nation, Trump was, in fact, elected in 2016 and was reelected in 2020. That “national hysteria” was, therefore, not a nationwide hysteria—it was the cynical faux hysteria of the Left. Shameful enough, I will grant, but it was very much an elite phenomenon that may have made a difference at the margin, to narrow Trump’s margin of victory, but wasn’t a deciding factor—in my opinion. Russia, Russia, Russia was simply a Cold War narrative that, after nearly 30 years, was losing its cachet outside Neocon circles. Even with a populace as neglectful of big issues as the American people, disinformation has its limits. That truth is coming home, more and more, as we see poll after poll documenting lack of interest, lack of belief, in each false narrative thrown up by the Left in this runup to Election 2022. I’ll say it again—shame on Bluto Barr.

Now, before I click on “Publish”, I want to remind one and all about just what was really going on with this Russia Hoax—what it was that made these people to suborn virtually every top level institution in our constitutional order. As Clarice Feldman noted yesterday (The Structural Legal Rot Runs Deep ), the rot has spread far and wide, but there was a precipitating issue here that did tip the balance. To explain that, I’ll quote this exchange between commenter Cassander and myself, earlier this morning. Because the roots of the faux impeachment can be found in the Russia Hoax itself and the Ukrainian connection that was at work in the Hillary campaign during Election 2016:

In the tweet from StarBoy which Mark includes in his post he says, "So the US admits that for the past eight years, America and its allies have planned and prepared Ukraine for war all along... The US began to supply weapons to Ukraine long before the start of the war - Pentagon spokesman John Kirby on Fox News"

I have a hunch they didn't tell Donald Trump what they were up to...another reason he had to go...

Remember Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman? At Trump's (first) impeachment proceeding he testified, "While my interagency colleagues and I were becoming increasingly optimistic on Ukraine's prospects, this alternative narrative [i.e., Trump's] undermined U.S. government efforts to expand cooperation with Ukraine."

Think about that.

Exactly. That has become crystal clear now. The "interagency" policy of the Deep State that even presidents are not allowed to alter is unalterable hostility to Russia as a strategy--US dominance over the Eurasian landmass as enunciated by the likes of Brzezinski. The tactical aspect to achieving that strategic objective has been a tightening ring of countries around Russia featuring NATO-ization of countries bordering the former Soviet Union and "color revolutions" in former Soviet republics--Ukraine (Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan). That is all accompanied by open economic war against Russia ("sanctions") with the increasing threat of military threats--first in Georgia, which Russia defeated, now in Ukraine which is a much larger challenge.

THIS IS WHAT THE IMPEACHMENT WAS ALL ABOUT. Preserving this Neocon policy imperative of subjecting Russia to Neocon rule. Anyone in DC who was unaware of the true dynamics of all this can only have been terminally stupid. I'm frankly puzzled by Trump's failure to understand the enmity facing him.

It is this drive to empire, to imperial overreach spanning the globe, that has corrupted our institutions. It also necessitates the 24/7/365 disinformation campaign that keeps these elites in power, undermining our national political culture for purposes that are never fully explained, never placed before the country for its approval. Because the DC establishment knows that, in this as in so many other policy areas, their schemes simply don’t resonate with We The People.

Might Biden be a Liar & Predator like McCarrick?

September 15, 2020   Everyone knows that sexual predator ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick is a liar. His whole life was a lie of betrayal of the most sacred vows he took and the violation of the moral tenets of the Catholic faith which he desecrated. Most people don't realize that part of this desecration of lies included lying for "gravely sinful" Democrats like Joe Biden. McCarrick protected Biden when then head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (later to be Pope Benedict XVI) wrote that bishops were not to admit to Communion politicians like "gravely sinful" Biden who supports the killing of unborn babies. McCarrick lied for politicians like Biden by ignoring the important parts of the Ratzinger letter and told bishops not to ignore the Catholic Church law.  Last year, Fr. Robert Morey denied Holy Communion to the “gravely sinful” Biden following a "2004 decree signed jointly by the bishops of

The Biben Lying Machine: "Joe , do you know what else is a Sin besides Killing Babies? Lying... "

October 09, 2020   It appears that Joe Biden was even a lying machine in 2008 according to the post " Media Ignores Biden Repeatedly Lies During 'Meet the Press' Interview" on the Weasel Zippers website: Joe Biden Repeatedly Lies During "Meet the Press" Interview, Claims he Doesn't Support Taxpayer Funded Abortions.....   Joe, do you know what else is a sin besides killing babies? Lying... ... Joe Biden repeatedly made the claim in a Sunday interview on the NBC political show "Meet the Press" that he opposes taxpayer funding of abortions. However, a look at his voting record over the years reveals numerous instances where Barack Obama's pro-abortion running mate did exactly that. "I don't support public, public funding. I don't, because that flips the burden. That's then telling me I have to accept a different view," he said on the program. As recently as February, Biden voted against an amendmen
