The Mueller report is finished, and has been submitted to the Department of Justice…so what’s next?
For many, including President Trump himself, the answer seems to be investigating how exactly we entered into this long national nightmare in the first place.
When Hillary Clinton first began harping on Russia during the 2016 presidential debates, Americans seemed a bit confused. Why, out of seemingly nowhere, was the former Secretary of State suddenly lambasting then-candidate Trump over his willingness to work hand in hand with the Kremlin? After all, diplomacy is still part of the President’s job, right?
Soon, we understood why the democratic candidate focused on Russia: There were moles, spies of some sort within the Trump campaign, possibly even attempting to manufacture a Kremlin-connection on which Hillary could feast during the election.
With the Mueller report seemingly vindicating President Trump, (at least through the summary by Attorney General Bill Barr), some in Congress are now pushing to revisit “SpyGate” to determine just how dirty the democrats were playing back in 2016.
House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA) is planning to send a criminal referral next week to the Justice Department that will detail “multiple referrals on a number of different crimes,” including leaking classified information, as part of his investigation into misconduct at the Justice Department and the FBI.
“As of now, it’ll be one criminal referral but with multiple referrals on a number of different crimes,” he told Breitbart News on Wednesday in an exclusive interview. “We will have some leakers in there for sure.”
Nunes’ characterization of those involved furthered the “SpyGate” ethos.
He said on the ending of the Special Counsel investigation, after it found the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia, “We knew this was a joke from the beginning, and I’ve said as much for a long time. Basically from the time our report came out, which has been a year. But now, the real work begins. It’s good to not have that sitting out there. But we have to now go on offense and track down all these dirty cops and bad players.”
Should we discover that the Obama administration was willfully spying on then-candidate Trump for the purpose of assisting Hillary Clinton, there is little doubt that the democratic party will have a very tough time recovering in time to face Trump again in 2020.
