Elder Patriot| A host of Democrats including Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Charles Schumer are demanding the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report – in its entirety.
That’s been the Democrats’ talking point since they took control of the House and control of chamber’s investigative processes.
That was the point when they reversed their objections to the release of such findings that they originally contended would endanger national security. Such is the power of controlling the narrative.
Suddenly the national security concerns, that Dems cited to justify their prior objections to the release of a ten-page memo written by the House Intel Committee (HPSCI) while Republican Devin Nunes was its chairman, no longer matter.
Now that one of their trusted narrative writers is in charge of writing the final report, Democrats are confident that it will be full of juicy half-truths and innuendo that Mueller’s team “just couldn’t manage to prove.”
Pelosi-led Democrats in the House will use that narrative to drive an endless stream of investigations – with selected salacious but unproven leaks being reported around the clock, 24/7, by their propaganda arm, aka the mainstream media .
The goal is to tarnish President Trump to the point that he becomes toxic to voters.
The new Attorney General, William Barr, is not likely to accommodate the Democrats’ request. Out of fairness to the investigation’s target, Justice Department rules require Barr to issue a report only in the event that there is a criminal finding.
However, Nunes understands how this game is played. Politics will be as important as the factual findings, likely even more important, as we continue the march towards the 2020 election.
Democrats will be counting on the propaganda media to run Democrat infomercials for their unfounded allegations and accusations in what will be an extended political campaign against President Trump. Just look back over the past two years if you don’t believe that’s their plan.
So facts matter but politics matter more. Nunes gets that. And he has a strategy to win on both fronts.
Remember, as a member of the Gang of Eight, Nunes has the highest security clearance in Congress. Also, having led the HPSCI investigation for two years he knows what’s likely to be in Mueller’s report. At least the factual findings and not the innuendo.
That’s why he’s seeing the Democrats’ call to release the final Mueller report and upping them by going all in.
Nunes told the Washington Examiner’s Byron York:
“I want everything that Mueller did made public. I want every email, everybody that they wiretapped, every warrant that they got. Every single thing that Mueller used needs to be made public for all of America to see.”
Nunes is confident that if Americans get to see the heavy-handed police-state tactics that have been employed against Donald Trump they will be appalled and demand a cleansing of the Department of Justice and the FBI.
Nunes is expected to make several criminal referrals in this regard as soon as Mueller releases his report and President Trump becomes free to declassify the proof of what those departments – and others within the Obama administration – did to undermine his candidacy and later, his presidency.
The extent of the Obama intel community’s corrupt efforts will also be shown to go far beyond trying to discredit Donald Trump, alone. Once they set their sights on Trump, it no longer mattered who got crushed in the effort – including highly-decorated general, Michael Flynn.
“In May of 2017 there was a document identified to a small number of people in the United States government. It’s in the possession of the Defense Intelligence Agency. For eighteen months there’s been an effort to resist declassifying that document; I know that that document contains extraordinary exculpatory information about General Flynn. I don’t believe the president has ever been told about the existence of this document. One lawmaker discovered it, but was thwarted by the Defense Intelligence Agency in his efforts to disclose it. I think we should all ask for that declassification; get that out; it may enlighten the judge; it will certainly enlighten the American public.”
Nunes is almost certainly that lawmaker. Remember, back in March 2017, HPSCI Chairman Devin Nunes was taken to the White House SCIF by white house official Ezra Cohen-Watnick. Cohen-Watnick was fired shortly after that and Nunes was the subject of a dust-up over recusal.
This is just one example of the treachery that Donald Trump and those around him have been subjected to by Obama-Clinton Deep State loyalists. Nunes likely knows there’s far more than this and where to find it.
That’s why when Democrats demand the release of Mueller’s carefully tailored report intended to inflict maximum political damage to President Trump, as well as to supply fodder for ceaseless congressional investigations of the president, Nunes has responded by saying release it all!
