At The American Conservative, Pat Buchanan demands that the story of how President Trump’s accusers, “using the power of the state, almost murdered a presidency with lies, propaganda and innuendo,” be brought into the light.
Americans have every reason to expect a full accounting of how, on flimsy evidence, the nation was subjected to two years of a baseless investigation into President Trump. Two years of shadow were cast on America’s rightfully elected leader while he and his administration were attempting to deal with the friction in the Middle East, negotiations with North Korea and China, and a crisis on the border with Mexico.
Pat Buchanan asks “Is it unfair to ask who did this to us?” The answer is an emphatic no. He writes:
“The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia … to influence the 2016 US presidential campaign.”m
Sen. Joe McCarthy did not do a fraction of the damage to the reputations of Dean Acheson or George Marshall that the elite media have done, unjustly and maliciously, to the reputation of Donald Trump.
Years after French Artillery Capt. Alfred Dreyfus was convicted of colluding with the Germans in the late 19th century, and was sent to Devil’s Island, evidence against another officer emerged.
Soon, it was Dreyfus’ accusers who were in the dock of public opinion.
That needs to happen now.
The instigators of this investigation, launched to bring down a president, have damaged and divided this nation, and they need to be exposed, as do their collaborators in the press.
The roots of Mueller’s investigation go back to the Clinton campaign’s hiring of the opposition research firm Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on Trump.
Fusion GPS hired ex-British spy Christopher Steele. He had sources in Russian intelligence who provided him with the contents of his infamous dossier. This was delivered to a grateful cabal at the FBI, which used it as the basis of a FISA court warrant to surveil the Trump campaign.
The dirt in the Steele dossier, much of it false, would be secretly shared with Trump-haters in the media to torpedo his candidacy; then, when Trump won, to destroy his presidency before it began.
Now that Trump has been exonerated, the story of how his accusers, using the power of the state, almost murdered a presidency with lies, propaganda and innuendo, needs to be brought out into the sunlight.
