The Coming Collusion Bloodbath
Townhall, by Kevin McCullough

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/19/2018 4:38:27 AM

The firing of Andrew McCabe, the discovery of his “private notes,” the ill-tempered response by other Obama loyalists and a yet to be disclosed Inspector General’s report on an investigation that began before Donald Trump had come to office are all pieces of a story that dwarfs the still absent evidence of anything Trump and company did to cooperate with Russians in changing votes in Michigan and Wisconsin. So many Democrats and Republicans have asserted the lack of evidence in the Russian collusion issue its become comical if not annoying to endure as the uninformed continue to argue otherwise. But few have

One thing that we can be sure of is that anything that the dims accuse Trump and his people of doing is exactly what THEY (the dims) are doing. This is their MO and it is catching up with them.

It is past time to bring these lefties to trial and stop them from doing any more damage to this country

The coming IG report is going to be a big fat nothingburger. It is going to be just like the things Trey Gowdy has been teasing us with for years, and then he produces nothing. If it really was going to be explosive people would be leaving their jobs and yes, the country. Demotions are nothing, let´s see arrests and then there´s something. Comey and Mueller do not look scared. McCabe looked more annoyed than scared when marched out of his office. None of them are scared, so they know nothing is coming.

FTA "In some respects Robert Mueller never asked for the position he finds himself in. But if he is not willing to look at the evidence before him and truly follow where it leads then it is time for him to go as well."

Well Mueller is not willing to follow the evidence because it leads to his fellow corrupt members of DOJ and FBI and other Democrats higher ups like Clinton, Rice, Powers, Lynch, obama etc. Mueller´s only job is to create a process crime against President Trump! Show me the man and I´ll show you the crime. Mueller was shown Trump. The corruption in the DOJ, FBI, State Department, NSA, CIA, IRS, EPA under 8 years of obama is unbelievable and Mueller will ignore all of it. Mueller and his cohorts are the swamp problem!

Unfortunately RINOs don´t do bloodbaths. Instead all they know how to do are raspy tongue baths. Yes, occasionally they manage to hack up a furball like McCabe not getting his full pension (ooooh, burn), but that´s about it.

Doubt it? Check out Lois Lerner, caught red-handed, yet now blissfully sipping margaritas on some beach in Cancun on her taxpayer-funded Golden retirement. Or Hillary Havisham, eternal bachelorette, sending us I Don´t Love You notes from India.

Really good article Mr McCullough! However, I´m with poster #2. Hard to believe this will go anywhere near "explosive".

FTA... "In some respects Robert Mueller never asked for the position he finds himself in. But if he is not willing to look at the evidence before him and truly follow where it leads then it is time for him to go as well."

This I agree with 100%. But Mueller isn´t looking for evidence on Russian collusion. He is looking for a way to bring down our president.

First, Russian collusion is not, and never has been illegal. I hope I can get that through, someday. Second, Trump does not, and never has, given a whit about the Russians. It is the Democrats that have been carouseling with the Russians. The real outrage is that many members of the GOP voted for this investigation of Trump, continue to support it, threaten Trump if he tries to stop it. I hope those GOP members get justice.

The only way this ridiculous partisanship will end is that Obama and Clinton will, and should, be so damaged that no one will not want to be associated with them, even democrats. The facts are there that could do this, I hear. Indicting all of people, including Obama and Clinton. and dispensing the fullest penalties possible should be applied to all of them.

The whole Russia collusion sideshow is just another extension of Hillary´s loss of an election and a job that was HERS. The real crimes took place during the Obama administration and the real criminals are still walking around talking about it in foreign countries trying to evoke sympathy.

Obama and Hillary will go down in history as victims with nothing but a legacy of excuses for failure and the people who are still defending them will just go down as stupid.

Wait ... McCabe has "notes" ... and he "gave" them to Mueller? You mean those notes he wrote out two weeks ago to save his own butt? The ones he back-dated --- and then stepped on them, put his wet coffee cup on, tore a small corner and crumpled up and then flattened out to make them look old? Those notes? Oh yeah ... game changer!

There have been so many statements that have now been proven to be outright lies that I won´t believe anything from Mueller now or from any of the Obama holdovers trying to destroy Trump.

Here´s the deal: I don´t care of they produced a video tape of Trump, Stormy & Putin having a threesome. Or hand written letters from Vlad confirming the favors and the wire transfers to Swiss banks as payoff. The Left tolerated Clinton, Obama, Hillary, the Kennedys, Weiner, and all the corruption because they got what they wanted. Therefore, don´t expect me to get upset now.

What should these Obama loyalists fear? They got away with illegally suppressing and destroying an entire political party. The Tea Party. The Republicans stood by and allowed it. No one got punished. The problem for the Republicans is the government is made of greater than 90% Democrats. And in the higher ranking positions that bias is even worse. They feel emboldened by their victory over the Tea Party. And the Republicans are next on their list.

When you accept the utter absurdity of the current state of the investigation it is hard to form expectations that would seem rational.

It is a known fact that the entire impetus of the investigation was Hillary Clinton and her flying monkeys of the DNC. Ok the flying monkey part isn’t exactly factual.
It is a known fact that the elements of intelligence apparatus of the USA were part and parcel of an attempt to thwart the election of DJT and hinder his presidency after the election.

All that we are sorting out is exactly who was involved and at what level, the basics are no longer logically in dispute.
That cluster …stuff…culminated in the special council under Mueller who proceeded to appoint political partisans, 100% from the very opposition party that has been proven to have conspired with Russians to sway the election and impede the presidency.

All that having taken place without so much as a whimper from the MSM, any leader in the democrat party speaking out or even legacy GOPers. How then would I expect the train to switch to a logical track?

Unfortunately none of this matters because "How dare you interfere with our investigation!". The dems, with assistance from many Republicans, got Mueller assigned and he is their last and only hope. They will fight his dismissal or even the conclusion of his investigation because as long as he is still around they can continue their endless speculation as to Trump´s evilness.

Frankly, it´s a toss up right now whether canning Mueller would do more damage vs. leaving him in place for the 2018 elections. If the IG report comes out as expected, it will devastate Muller´s credibility and even the need for an investigation at all since it was all ginned up by the small group.

My guess is that Sessions is waiting for the release of the report and he wants it to be bulletproof. If some of the small group principles HAVE cooperated, the shock wave will be YUGE. Investigations and prosecutions can be carried out in earnest and the whole Russian meme can be dismissed with prejudice.

The Left will go (more?) insane. The media will melt down (again). Hillary will fall down another flight of stairs. Nancy Pelousy will be at a loss for words. Schiffty´s outrage meter will peg.

We will smile.

It can´t happen soon enough.

I think it´ll be explosive but they´ll try to distract. Here´s what they´ve got that I can think of: What really happened in Las Vegas; Hillary´s actual illness (she is a pawn now); the further list of Bill Clinton´s victims (also a pawn); nothing about Soros because he is not a pawn quite yet, until old age and death draw just a bit closer. Not Obama´s educational paperwork - he is a pawn now but his managers are not. And make the most of those already disgraced. Marital details on McCabe, as he´s done anyhow. Sympathetic profiles of Strzok and Page. Those are my guess and I bet they are pre-written.

apologies for further post - also expect that they have some derisive term prepared that will instantly spread everywhere. Note, there is no snappy term out there yet. "Gate of Gates" is very good though. Anyhow they´ll produce something like "that kerfuffle at the DOJ" and repeat it thousands of times, everywhere and immediately. Watch for it and for who uses it.

Hannity and his crowd have oversold this. When the media is in on the game with the left it is near impossible to convince America of anything different than the narrative they are selling.

To spend every night on your TV program trying to convince everyone that “in the next few weeks,the ax will fall on the FBI and everyone else”, I think does more harm than good. They have over hyped this and many are going to be left looking the fools. Meanwhile the left skates again without a speck of mud on their face and we are labeled conspiracists.

I can appreciate the expectation that the IG report won’t be “explosive” because the enemedia will refuse to light the fuse and the fatalistic predictions that none of the real perps will be brought to justice. I just cannot share them.

Donald Trump’s victory was a 9.9 on the American political Richter scale. So far, we have only been feeling the leading-edge waves. I expect a double-thump main jolt with the release of the IG report followed quickly by indictments from the “outside DC” federal prosecutor appointed by “sleepy” Sessions. (Imagine that!) The stone walls that have shielded the Deep State will be rubble about their ankles while onlookers gawk at their nakedness. Then the after shocks will kick in; sharp and of enough duration you think another big one is on the way, but then in decreasing intensity at wider intervals until you begin to rebuild. Then, wham! Another one. I expect the ground will be shaking under the feet of every Obamanation minion, as well as the Magic Negro himself.

There’s no going back to the way things “used to be.” That paradigm has been shattered. It’s easy from our armchairs to demand swift retribution, but we don’t know 10% of what President Trump knows. A criminal enterprise that has taken over the government of the greatest nation in the world it not something that can be dismantled immediately. I trust President Trump’s intellect and experience to oversee the demolition of the Deep State and still maintain citizen trust in the process. There is no other man with the qualifications to shepherd our nation through this crisis.

The coup failed and we are entering another critical phase in the restoration of our Republic. President Trump needs our prayers and patient support.

MAGA – Trust Trump.

The amount of evidence that has been exposed is explosive in itself. Now, it has to be verified and publicized by the IG report.

The Justice Dept. could have made accusations along the way, but I believe that the exposure of the Deep State is the goal....the big game.

Rush just noted that a very large percentage of the public now believe that there is a "Deep State" operating in the US. It takes time to expose this scheme.

If you read Sundance in "The Last Refuge" web site, you will be shocked by the enormity of the whole scheme to exonerate and then elect Hillary Clinton; cover up their past bad deeds; spy on Donald Trump; undermine his election; and finally to discredit him and get him out of office. It is mind-blowing in its complexity. A HUGE plot by the top people at the FBI, CIA and the other intelligence agencies, with the cooperation and involvement of the Obama Administration.

Sundance presents a very reasoned basis for a Justice Dept. Attorney General now working with the IG to provide the legal power to prosecute crimes. There may be much more afoot than is evident.

I thought that I was very well informed and have kept up with the whole scheme. But, Sundance provides insights that no one else has. Glad to see that others post many of his articles here on Lucianne.

The expected IG report will not be earth-shaking, but, sufficiently pointed. It will be the start of a long slow process to discover who colluded and establish a factual basis. The recent Intelligence Committee announcement as to no collusion by Trump will be supported by future announcements that Billary´s campaign team, a past president (Obie) and his team, and existing senators from both parties were the colluders. The term "bloodbath" is not a strong enough term to characterize what is about to happen to the guilty parties.

#´s 28& 29. Ya´ll posted while I was still typing. I wholeheartedly agree with you. Just let me add:

#’s 2,4,14. I think ya’ll are forgetting something. All you refer to was done under the Obama administration. There’s a new Sheriff in town. Nunes, Grassley, Goodlatte, and, yes, Sessions have been working on this the way it’s supposed to be done. It takes time. And when it’s time, all hell is going to break loose in the media, like it is now with McCabe. But it won’t matter.

When the OIG report comes out, and it will come out in phases, it won’t matter what the media screams about. The genie is already out of the bottle. There is already a YUGE amount of evidence out there as part of the public record. No amount of screaming will put it back into the bottle.

And that is what we know about. Think of all the leaks that have occurred up to now. What do you hear out of Sessions and the Inspector General? Crickets. That’s because they are doing the job the way it’s done to build a criminal referral. Strzok, Page, Baker, and both Ohrs have more than likely already signed statements. They are in the bag already. Bigger heads will roll. There is already enough known evidence to charge Comey, McCabe, Simpson, Jacoby, and Steele with felonies.

It hasn’t even started yet.

It was telling that as Tax Day arrived this week, the media’s focus was riveted not on the massive tax overhaul that President Trump recently signed into law, but on James Comey, Stormy Daniels, and Michael Cohen. In their own ways, these three players in the Trump drama symbolize the ethical storms and moral challenges constantly buffeting the president. Those tempests have imposed an unmistakable political cost on Trump—whose approval rating remains far below what might be expected in an economy this strong—and they represent an inescapable threat to Republicans in the November midterm elections.

When Mick Mulvaney, President Trump’s acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, appeared before Congress last week, he managed to illustrate the absurdity of the agency that he heads. In questioning him, several Democrats disputed that Mulvaney even is the director, claiming that an Obama-era appointee retains authority—and they may actually have a point. This squabbling may seem like government-incompetence-as-usual, but in fact, the CFPB is working as intended—shielding elected officials from the opposition of lobbyists who don’t want sensible financial rules and from the wrath of consumers who, a decade after the financial crisis, remain ill-served by an

Eleven House Republicans have sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray officially referring Hillary Clinton, fired FBI Director James Comey, fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for criminal investigation. FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who were caught sending hundreds of anti-Trump text messages during the Clinton investigation, have also been referred for criminal investigation.

Move over, Trump Derangement Syndrome. Another unhinged liberal pathology is back: Chick-fil-A-phobia. Perhaps, in the interest of public health, the CDC should launch a weekly C-F-A-P surveillance report to map the recurrence of this culturally infectious disease. Early-onset symptoms include fear of pressure-cooked poultry, allergic reaction to waffle potato fries and an irrational hatred of cow costumes. Anti-Christian prejudice and coastal elitism are common comorbidities associated with this debilitating progressive condition. Ground zero for the latest outbreak? The headquarters of The New Yorker magazine. This week´s issue online features the bigoted lament of writer Daniel Piepenbring, who decries the fast-food chain´s "creepy infiltration"

Please Stop Predicting the

Democrats and some concerned Republicans have been warning for months that firing special counsel Robert Mueller would be a point of no return for President Donald Trump. That speculative frontier advanced even further over the weekend, after the New Yorker’s Adam Davidson declared that the Trump presidency has now entered its “end stages,” following a raid on the office and hotel room of Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. What these predictions rather conspicuously lack is any attempt to explain precisely the series of events that would be Trump’s formal undoing. In the case of Mueller’s firing, Democrats, in typical Democratic

Comey and Brennan, Leaders of the Coup

Even as Jim Comey and John Brennan lecture the American people on what is “normal,” they adopt an astonishingly abnormal role for former heads of the CIA and FBI — the role of coup leaders whose partisanship grows more reckless by the day. “This is not a tin-pot dictatorship,” says Comey. But aren’t Brennan and Comey acting like officials of a displaced one? They are trying to claw back to power by spreading unverified charges against a duly elected president. Brennan says without evidence that the Russians have “something” on Trump. Comey says without evidence that it is “possible” Trump paid

The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump. The complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and help Trump by hacking the computer networks of the Democratic Party and disseminating stolen material found there. “During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found

Eleven House Republicans have sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray officially referring Hillary Clinton, fired FBI Director James Comey, fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for criminal investigation. FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who were caught sending hundreds of anti-Trump text messages during the Clinton investigation, have also been referred for criminal investigation. U.S. Attorney John Huber, who was tapped by Sessions a few weeks ago to investigate the FBI´s handling of the Clinton email probe, was copied on the request. “Because we believe that those

Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama are building a swimming pool at their home in an exclusive neighborhood of Washington DC. The 44th president and his family purchased the the 8,200 sq ft mansion in the Kalorama area of the capital in 2017 for $8.1million having initially rented the property. Plans are now afoot for a new swimming pool in the grounds, according to TMZ, which says it has seen building permits. The permit application process started in January, the website reports, and there have been a number of reviews about electrics and plumbing in recent months. Last year, it

“If the Trumps were Democrats,” conservative actor James Woods tweeted earlier this month, “Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” Woods may be exaggerating a little bit — only Oprah can put herself on the cover of a magazine every month, and it’s her own magazine — but he does make an interesting point. First Lady Melania Trump has not graced the cover of a single magazine in the United States since her husband took office over a year ago. Michelle Obama, on the other hand, was featured on at least thirty

"She is descending into hell right now. She´s not going to heaven. She was a bad person," Stone told controversial website InfoWars.com Wednesday.

“No one in modern politics, male or female, has had to withstand more indignities, setbacks and cynicism. She developed protective armor that made the real Hillary Clinton an enigma. But if she was guarded about her feelings and opinions, she believed it was in careful pursuit of a dream for generations of Americans: the election of the country’s first woman president.” That would have been the nut graf of The New York Times story about Hillary Clinton’s historic victory that would have run under the headline “Madam President” spread across six front-page columns, according to reporter Amy Chozick’s new book,

The past 12 hours brought two very big revelations involving former FBI director James B. Comey, President Trump and the Russia investigation, and they must be looked at side by side to fully grasp their collective importance. Comey’s memos of his conversations with Trump have leaked in full. This came after Republicans threatened to subpoena them from Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, leading him to release them to Congress. Comey confirmed to Rachel Maddow that before getting fired, he ordered an internal investigation into whether Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani had been privately tipped off by people in the FBI two weeks

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

Former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, a combative former prosecutor and longtime ally of President Trump, told The Washington Post on Thursday that he has joined the president’s legal team dealing with the ongoing special counsel probe. “I’m doing it because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the country and because I have high regard for the president and for Bob Mueller,” Giuliani said in an interview. Giuliani, who joins a legal team that has struggled to recruit new members to its ranks, said he has been speaking with Trump for weeks

New York set aside $10 million for the legal defense of immigrants targeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement just days after ICE announced the arrest of hundreds of people in the state. The Liberty Defense Project will ensure legal rights are being represented, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. It was launched last year, but it needs the additional funds in light of what state officials described as “overly aggressive tactics” from ICE. “ICE’s hyper-aggressive raids on hardworking New Yorkers are immoral and un-New York, and we stand more determined than ever to support the rights of all immigrants in the Empire State

President Donald Trump won´t be joining his wife in attending the memorial service of former first lady Barbara Bush. Bush was the matriarch of a political dynasty that Trump often clashed with during his 2016 campaign. The White House says Trump will not attend ´to avoid disruptions due to added security, and out of respect for the Bush Family and friends attending the service.´ The president is expected to be at his Florida estate this weekend. Trump has offered his condolences to the Bush family, calling Barbara Bush ´a titan in American life.´ Mrs. Bush´s funeral is Saturday in Houston. Running as a political
