The revelation Democrats hoped would be revealed in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation didn’t happen. Instead the report revealed what may be evidence of Barack Obama’s crimes rather than President Trump’s alleged collusion.
Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy made that prediction on Fox News host Bill Hemmer’s podcast, “Hemmer Time,” indicating that “some of the highest Obama-era officials” were the ones that “spurred the investigation.”
McCarthy reminded Hemmer’s listeners that Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s reports are going to “start flowing out” next month and his findings are ominous.”
Horowitz is a former assistant U.S. attorney who served as a prosecutor in the case of blind sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman who masterminded the 1993 terror attack on the World Trade Center. McCarthy said of Horowitz, “The inspector general is a very thorough meticulous guy who served one with him in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New York. He’s a terrific lawyer, good investigator.”
When asked by Hemmer if he thinks Barr has been under pressure from House Democrats because they wanted to “dent his credibility,” McCarthy agreed that this “is what these guys are good at.”
McCarthy went even further, saying he thought that the Russia-gate fiasco occurred because no-one on that side expected Trump to win. He said, “I think a large part of the reason they did a lot of the things they did, everybody knew Hillary was going to win. And in addition to that, they did everything by counterintelligence so it was all under the code of classification. So they figured this was never going to get out.”
As McCarthy pointed out, after Trump won that left Obama with just ten weeks before Trump took over and had access to all intelligence reports he’d gathered on him. Along with that, they knew he “was going to have access to all of the intelligence files of the executive branch all of the top secret information in government.”
Obama and his administration knew that Donald Trump was not the average politician that would keep his cool and wait for the whole affair to “blow over.”
Contrary to that they probably said, “Trump is going to go crazy when he finds out about this so it’s inevitably going to come out anyway.”
Those ten weeks, while he still had control of the government, the Obama Whitehouse has to amplify the “newly discovered” threat of a Trump-Russia conspiracy.
Since they knew the information unearthed by Mueller would come out, McCarthy said Obama’s people knew they “needed to justify why they used the government’s extraordinary counterintelligence powers” to launch an investigation against a presidential campaign.”
When Hemmer asked if his guest was suggesting those in Obama’s White House were trying to cover their tracks, McCarthy responded: “They were trying to justify their tracks.”
The subject then turned to why Robert Mueller took so long to tell the public there was no collusion between Russia and Trump.
Former federal judge and President George W. Bush’s attorney general, Michael Mukasey has criticized Mueller for the delay. He asked on Hemmer’s show last week, “When did Bob Mueller know, or when did the people who worked with him know, that there was no coordination, which is what they were looking for?”
McCarthy agrees with Mukasey that Mueller knew by the end of 2017 there was no collusion. He said, “If you read Mueller’s indictments that he filed especially the ones against the two groups of Russians they preclude the possibility that there was collusion between the Russians and anyone on the American side, not just Trump.”
Hemmer asked Mukasey last week that if Mueller had come forward sooner would that have prompted AG Barr from making his much-maligned official announcement. George W. Bush’s former AG said it would have certainly taken the edge off media speculation.
Russia has been meddling with the West in general, and especially the United States, since the 1917 Communist Revolution. As Mukasey told Hemmer, that doesn’t lessen the reality of the threat. It does, however, remind us that we need to have a “sense of proportion here.”
Attempted Russian interference is nothing new. What is new is this blatant attempt by the shadow government of Barack Obama to affect the outcome of a presidential election.
Candidate Trump knew instinctively what must be going on in 2016.
Hopefully we can get this news out about the real story of Russian collusion and Obama’s lies to the American people—not that the mainstream media will report on this.
