‘Worse Than Watergate’: Rand Paul Calls for Investigation Into Obama Officials’ Collusion Against Trump
Compared to Watergate and Nixon….Obama and his administrators are at least 10 times worse. Just look at Hillary Clinton and her deleted emails and private server alone! That’s not including any of the wiring tapping of Trump or the fake Trump dossier or ANYTHING else. This is BIG LEAGUE folks! ….and don’t forget Nixon was forced to resign.
In a tweet Thursday, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul alluded to a major scandal involving “high ranking Obama government officials.”
The Kentucky Republican called for an investigation into a scandal he said “could be WORSE than Watergate.”
Time to investigate high ranking Obama government officials who might have colluded to prevent the election of @realDonaldTrump! This could be WORSE than Watergate!
This could be WORSE than Watergate!
Speculation began to build, with the Washington Examiner noting that his tweet came shortly after two FBI officials were found to have expressed personal criticism of then-candidate Trump as they worked on investigations with a potential impact on his campaign.
The news has prompted Trump and a number of his closest supporters — including a handful of Fox News Channel hosts — to promote the theory that the current investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia is a politically motivated witch-hunt.
“Justice with Judge Jeanine” host Jeanine Pirro offered what she claimed was evidence of such a conspiracy in a recent monologue.
“Sounds far fetched, doesn’t it?” she concluded. “It’s not. There’s a core group of arrogant, corrupt and lawless individuals that felt that they, and not we, should decide the presidential election. And when they failed, they conspired to create the false narrative to not just muddy our choice for president but to bring down his presidency and his family as well.”
Pirro further alleged that “the evidence is there” to support her theory and “the motive (is) disclosed.”
They changed …”Grossly negligence”…to “extremely careless”…..or should I say Peter Strzok advised former FBI Director Comey to protect Hillary. ….YES! The same Peter Strzok who created and supported the Trump dossier….YES! The same Peter Strzok who sat in on and recommended that Clinton’s personal assistants be interviewed together… Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin. Oh, I’m sorry did they not think most Americans would connect the dots. Excuse me! That’s right move along little sheeple!
Trump himself set the tone for that narrative in public statements and tweets questioning the ability of the FBI to perform its duties.
Earlier this month, he impeached the agency’s reputation in a pair of tweets, writing in one post that it “is in Tatters – worst in History!”
After years of Comey, with the phony and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more), running the FBI, its reputation is in Tatters – worst in History! But fear not, we will bring it back to greatness.
Tainted (no, very dishonest?) FBI “agent’s role in Clinton probe under review.” Led Clinton Email probe. @foxandfriends Clinton money going to wife of another FBI agent in charge.
While HPSCI staff would not confirm who will be summoned for testimony, all indications point to demoted DOJ official Bruce G. Ohr and FBI General Counsel James A. Baker, who accompanied McCabe, along with other lawyers, to Tuesday’s HPSCI session.
The issuance of a subpoena against the Justice Department’s top lawyer could provoke a new constitutional clash between the two branches, even worse than the months-long tug of war over documents and witnesses that has already led House Speaker Paul Ryan to accuse DOJ and FBI of “stonewalling” and HPSCI Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., to threaten contempt-of-Congress citations against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray.
“It’s hard to know who’s telling us the truth,” said one House investigator after McCabe’s questioning.
Fox News is told that several lawmakers participated in the questioning of McCabe, led chiefly by Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.
Sources close to the investigation say that McCabe was a “friendly witness” to the Democrats in the room, who are said to have pressed the deputy director, without success, to help them build a case against President Trump for obstruction of justice in the Russia-collusion probe. “If he could have, he would have,” said one participant in the questioning.
Investigators say McCabe recounted to the panel how hard the FBI had worked to verify the contents of the anti-Trump “dossier” and stood by its credibility. But when pressed to identify what in the salacious document the bureau had actually corroborated, the sources said, McCabe cited only the fact that Trump campaign adviser Carter Page had traveled to Moscow. Beyond that, investigators said, McCabe could not even say that the bureau had verified the dossier’s allegations about the specific meetings Page supposedly held in Moscow.
That’s because it was ALL just a SET UP! A witch hunt! Nothing more. Nothing less.
The sources said that when asked when he learned that the dossier had been funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, McCabe claimed he could not recall – despite the reported existence of documents with McCabe’s own signature on them establishing his knowledge of the dossier’s financing and provenance.
Could NOT recall! …Are you frickin’ kidding me??! ….Seriously???!!!! Lock this dude up!
It’s time America moved on. Put away the real criminals and stop with the stonewalling Trump and his #MAGA.
Is THIS worse than Watergate?…..Is the Pope Catholic?
