While television networks are refusing to report on the series of scandals that have rocked Hillary Clinton, some other media outlets, as well as some top names in Democratic politics, have suddenly gone from talking about her like she is “all that and a bag of chips,” to throwing her directly under the proverbial bus, then taking turns jumping into the driver’s seat to keep running her over.
In the last three weeks, Hillary Clinton has been hit with what Fox News panelist, Charles Hurt calls “Three Watergate-Level scandals,” each one more damaging than the other, all of them implicating others such as Barack Obama, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, other deep state members, the Clinton Foundation, the entire DNC apparatus, deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, and more.
Week One, Scandal #1- Uranium One: While “Clinton Cash” exposed quite a bit of information on the Uranium One deal, the majority of the MSM kept calling it all a “conspiracy” theory, when The Hill exposed the level of corruption seen from bribery to potential money laundering, possible racketeering, and more, it blew up all over the internet, and now has follow up reports implicating Barack Obama in setting up a back channel to allow yellowcake uranium, the raw material used to make nuclear fuel and weapons, to be exported out of the U.S. and into Europe and Asia.
So many people, including Robert Mueller, have been implicated in the Uranium One scandal, because Mueller was FBI director at the time, that three GOP lawmakers have just introduced a resolution in Congress, saying that “Robert Mueller is compromised and should resign from his special counsel position immediately.”
Week Two, Scandal #2 – DNC, Clinton Campaign Funded “Trump Dossier”: Reports exposed that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC, paid out over $ 1 million to Fusion GPS, who hired former British spy Christopher Steele, to create the “Trump dossier,” using Kremlin links sources. Once again as that story blew up on the internet, more information was revealed that Barack Obama’s official campaign organization paid over $972,000 to Perkins Coie, the same group that funneled the money into Fusion GPS for the Clinton campaign and the DNC.
The Washington Post reported last week that Perkins Coie, an international law firm, was directed by both the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s campaign to retain Fusion GPS in April of 2016 to dig up dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump. Fusion GPS then hired Christopher Steele, a former British spy, to compile a dossier of allegations that Trump and his campaign actively colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 election. Though many of the claims in the dossier have been directly refuted, none of the dossier’s allegations of collusion have been independently verified. Lawyers for Steele admitted in court filings last April that his work was not verified and was never meant to be made public.
Keep that Perkins Coie reference in mind as we discuss the scandal revealed this week.
Week Three, Scandal #3 – Donna Brazile Admits Hillary Clinton Rigged Primary: Via an excerpt from former interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile, published at Politico in a piece titled “Inside Hillary Clinton’s Secret Takeover of the DNC”, she reveals what Bernie Sanders supporters have long alleged, the primary was rigged, but Brazile reveals the extent of corruption that ran rampant since 2015 in regards to the collusion between the Clinton campaign and the DNC.
While the Politico piece is long, NY Post succinctly cuts through the dramatizing of the book excerpt to get to the core issue:
Consider, then, that a formal agreement signed by the DNC and the Clinton campaign was executed in August 2015, two months before Biden made his decision.
The agreement, according to Brazile, “specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy and all the money raised. Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff. The DNC also was required to consult with the campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics and mailings.”
Via Washington Post (archive is link here) we see that Perkins Coie played a part in arranging for Clinton to basically take control of the DNC before she was even the official nominee:
Jeff Weaver, Sanders’s campaign manager, said in an interview that their campaign was led to believe it had the same joint fundraising agreement as Clinton.
“We were not offered veto power on staff at the DNC, I can tell you that,” said Weaver. “This was a laundering operation. They’d go to fundraisers, they’d get a $350,000 check from donors which was supposed to be divvied up. Instead of dispersing that money, they’d turn around and run a small-dollar fundraising to generate small contributions that went to the Clinton campaign.”
In a September 2015 email obtained by The Washington Post, a lawyer from Perkins Coie, a law firm representing both the DNC and the Clinton campaign, wrote the Sanders campaign with a copy of what was presented as a “standard joint fundraising agreement.”
“This is the same one we have used with other campaigns,” wrote Perkins Coie’s Graham Wilson.
While each of these scandals surrounds Hillary Clinton, as they have grown and more information has been revealed, spurning multiple congressional inquiries, more and more people are being implicated in the Clinton’s corruption.
So why now?
‘SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED AND IT’S VERY BAD’
Political pundits are weighing in and the majority of those we are seeing are wondering, why now? What happened, that we don’t yet know about, to suddenly see all this information not only being published, but causing Democrats to run as fast as they can away from Clinton, obviously trying to distance themselves?
Resurgent writer, Doctor Jesse Kelly, summed it up in a tweet on his verified Twitter account where he said “Something has happened and it’s very bad. To have them all turn on Queen Hillary at the same time is too coincidental.”
Dr. Kelly is not the only one asking that question in one form or another, as Zero Hedge reports how Elizabeth Warren jumped on that bus that is rolling back and forth over Hillary Clinton and the whole corrupt Democratic apparatus, telling CNN’s Jake Tapper that the Democratic primary was rigged, ZH concludes with the following paragraph:
And now if only some less easily impressionable, and more informed minds could tell us if as some have asked, Hillary’s rigging at the DNC pushed Biden out of the race, and more importantly – just what huge revelation is coming this way for the entire Democratic Party to suddenly throw Hillary Clinton under the bus – we would be grateful.
Donald Trump Jr. is also asking the question “It’s only been 16 months. Better late than never. EW and Donna B turning on the queen on the same day… wonder if there’s more???”
Either Democrats and some portions of the media know something we do not, something new that hasn’t been reported yet, and is getting ready to break, causing them to throw Hillary Clinton under the bus, or they know there is something more about one of the most recent three scandals that is getting ready to be revealed….. either way, it appears they do not want to go down with her and are cutting ties.
Either way it has got to be something huge because Democrats all know the Clintons do not forgive or forget.
BOTTOM LINE QUESTION -LAST STRAW FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS?
President Trump has been ripping the Justice Department and the FBI due to the lack of movement regarding investigations into these scandals, and others, tweeting up a storm, saying “Everybody is asking why the Justice Department (and FBI) isn’t looking into all of the dishonesty going on with Crooked Hillary & the Dems..”
Another one on November 3, 2017: “…New Donna B book says she paid for and stole the Dem Primary. What about the deleted E-mails, Uranium, Podesta, the Server, plus, plus…”
He continues “….People are angry. At some point the Justice Department, and the FBI, must do what is right and proper. The American public deserves it!”
Now we see a report saying “Trump won’t rule out firing Sessions.”
President Donald Trump said he is “disappointed” with the Justice Department and won’t rule out firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions, if Sessions won’t investigate Democrats.
“Honestly, they should be looking at the Democrats,” Trump told reporters before departing the White House on a 12-day trip to Asia.
The president’s comments came after he tweeted several times Friday morning to criticize his former 2016 rival Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee: “Crooked Hillary bought the DNC & then stole the Democratic Primary from Crazy Bernie!,” he wrote, adding it’s the “real story on Collusion.”
Asked if he would fire Sessions if DOJ doesn’t focus its investigative powers on Democrats, Trump said, “I don’t know.”
Trump continued: “A lot of people are disappointed in the Justice Department, including me.”
Frankly, President Trump may not have much of a choice here because Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from Russia related investigations, and both the Dossier and the Uranium One scandal have aspects that fall under the “Russia related” category, therefore AG Sessions cannot do the job required of the Attorney General.
If Sessions has any integrity he will not force the President to fire him, he would step down on his own.
