Suddenly, a lot of things are coming into focus. It is extremely important to pay attention to what people actually do and say before reaching conclusions. Two recent events are critical in understanding the Mueller investigation and the decisions made by Rod Rosenstein.
A Buzz Feed story broke saying that the Mueller investigation had solid evidence that Trump had ordered Michael Cohen to lie before congress. Almost immediately the Mueller investigation released a written statement saying that was not true. Think about that. The Mueller investigation NEVER releases any statements, other than when people are indicted. Yet they issued this statement within minutes. More recently Mueller allegedly told Trump he was NOT under investigation.
Andrew McCabe was interviewed by CBS. He said that Rod Rosenstein was seriously considering wearing a wire while talking to President Trump and agreed with the plan to ask cabinet members to invoke the 25th amendment. The DOJ responded almost immediately denying both of those allegations.
It is important to note exactly what the DOJ said in response:
“Finally, the Deputy Attorney General never spoke to Mr. Comey about appointing a Special Counsel,” the spokesperson said. “The Deputy Attorney General in fact appointed Special Counsel Mueller, and directed that Mr. McCabe be removed from any participation in that investigation. Subsequent to his removal, DOJ’s Inspector General found that Mr. McCabe did not tell the truth to federal authorities on multiple occasions, leading to his termination from the FBI.”
William Barr has been confirmed as the next Attorney General of the United States. For the first time since Trump was elected, an Attorney General appointed by him is not recused from the Russia Investigation. The significance of that cannot be overstated and definitely should not be ignored.
Andrew McCabe admitted in his book and on national TV that he personally started the Russia investigation with no authorization from anyone. He said he was motivated by the decision to fire James Comey. He also admitted to soliciting the support of the Rod Rosenstein, United States Deputy Attorney General to ask cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. This is nothing short of a conspiracy to overthrow the duly elected President of the United States. The dictionary describes this as TREASON:
the offense of attempting to overthrow the government of one’s country
Even if McCabe had evidence to support such action, he did not have the authority to personally launch an investigation of the President of the United States. In reality, he didn’t have any credible evidence. Recently released e-mails show that Andrew McCabe personally colluded with the Clinton Campaign to cover up criminal acts by Hillary Clinton. McCabe knew or should have known that the Russian Dossier was an unverified and probably fake document produced by opposition research paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign. It does not get much worse than this.
This puts the appointment of Robert Mueller in an entirely different perspective. Rod Rosenstein knew exactly what McCabe and others were doing. He was faced with an enormous problem. He could not allow them to continue unobstructed or he too would be part of the conspiracy. Jeff Sessions was recused and Donald Trump was not in a position to intervene without setting off an immediate constitutional crisis. Under the circumstances, perhaps Mueller wasn’t appointed to investigate Trump, he was appointed to stop McCabe.
Trump met with Mueller the day before he was appointed Special Counsel. The MSM assumed this was to interview Mueller for Director of the FBI. They then assumed that because Trump did not choose Mueller, Mueller was out to get Trump.
In retrospect, it never made sense for Rosenstein to arbitrarily decide to appoint a special counsel to investigate Trump. It seems more likely that Rosenstein advised Trump about the conspiracy to remove him from office and proposed the appointment of Robert Mueller to stop the conspirators. Trump may have interviewed Mueller, not as a candidate for Director of the FBI, but rather as special counsel.
As an added bonus, those people conspiring to overthrow the government would likely join the Mueller team under the assumption that he too was out to destroy Trump. This would be the ultimate sting operation. If that was the strategy, it worked perfectly as all the FBI and DOJ personnel involved have been removed from power.
Andrew McCabe just handed Trump his own head on a silver platter, hours before William Barr was confirmed as Attorney General. There was already evidence of what McCabe had done. Now we also have evidence of motive. Game, set, match.
William Barr is certain to recognize treason, when he sees it and he is extremely unlikely to ignore it. He will be sworn in this afternoon in White House ceremony where Chief Justice John Roberts will administer the oath of office.
He will raise his right hand and say the following:
I, William Barr, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter, so help me God.
If he means it, which he most certainly does, then Andrew McCabe and anyone who conspired with him should be afraid, very very afraid.
