During the 2016 election, something peculiar and nefarious occurred right before our very eyes.
The first indication that trouble was afoot, at least for the general public, came during one of those contentious debates between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Clinton, a career politician who was loathed by her own party, began dropping preconceived soundbites regarding Donald Trump’s alleged connections to Russia and the Kremlin. The former Secretary of State would even go so far as to insinuate that Trump’s hope for a diplomatic relationship with Vladimir Putin was evidence of his being compromised by the Russian leader.
The idea was pure insanity, but wound up instigating the RussiaGate investigation, undertaken by Robert Mueller and spanning the course of nearly two years. In the end, Mueller would not suggest any criminal charges against the President, however, fully deflating the left’s hope of nullifying the results of the 2016 election.
But where did Hillary even get this wild idea? And how did it morph into an all-consuming nightmare of bureaucracy?
That’s what the Department of Justice is looking to find out during their current SpyGate investigation – one that looks like it will ensnare some of the Obama administration’s most prominent information peddlers.
This includes James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence under Obama, who recently appeared with Anderson Cooper on CNN to discuss.
ANDERSON COOPER: Director Clapper, as the man who was there and oversaw the launch of the Russia investigation, what do you make of [the DOJ’s criminal probe?]
DNI JAMES CLAPPER: I’m very curious, since presumably, I guess, I’m one those under investigation.
COOPER: And you just heard about this?
CLAPPER: Yes, I just read the clip about 20 minutes ago. I found the timing interesting, given the increasing heat around the impeachment inquiry. The timing is interesting. I’ll just let it go at that. And the other thing I wonder about is whether we’re talking about the overall investigation of the Russia interference or are we talking about the counterintelligence investigation that was launched in July by the FBI about potential engagement or collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign. What is the alleged criminal activity that prompted this?
Inspector General Michael Horowitz this week indicated that the now-criminal investigation into this issue is nearly complete, leaving many Americans to wonder if the SpyGate probe will take a wrecking ball to the “formal impeachment inquiry” being propped up by progressives.
