Disgraceful Russia Bashing
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
The neocon CIA house organ Washington Post masquerades as a legitimate broadsheet.
It features all propaganda all the time on vital geopolitical issues, serving its CIA masters.
Russia bashing is a deplorable obsession, inventing ways to criticize its government and policies – supporting America’s global imperial criminal enterprise, instead of responsibly opposing it.
WaPo reported on undemocratic Dems wanting Facebook and Twitter to investigate what they called Russian efforts to release what House Republicans described as an explosive and shocking four-page memo reportedly showing extensive FISA abuses.
They claim it contains information about the Justice Department, the FBI and fake Trump dossier – prepared for Hillary Clinton and the DNC by former UK MI6 intelligence operative Christopher Steele.
The dossier contained accusations without evidence, alleging misconduct and collusion between Trump, his campaign and Russia during the presidential campaign – including phony accusations of Russian US election interference.
WaPo lied claiming online “accounts affiliated with Russian influence efforts have been supporting this campaign…interfering in (nonexistent US) democratic institutions,” adding:
Undemocratic Dems “dismissed the Republican campaign to publish the memo as a bid to undermine a legitimate law enforcement investigation into Trump’s campaign and transition.”
Russiagate is a colossal hoax, initiated to delegitimize Trump’s election along with bashing Moscow.
No Russian interference in America’s presidential election occurred. No evidence suggests it – just Big Lies falsely claiming otherwise.
According to Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee chairman Ron Johnson, former FBI deputy counterintelligence chief Peter Strzok – in charge of investigating alleged Russian interference in America’s 2016 presidential election, sent a text message, saying no evidence supports the accusation – two days after Mueller was appointed special council for the Russian investigation.
Johnson called the revelation “jaw-dropping…(T)here’s no big there there when it comes to the Mueller special council investigation” – no Trump/Russia collusion to investigate. Yet it continues, nothing done to stop it, fire Mueller, and end disgraceful House and Senate witch-hunt investigations.
The FBI destroyed five months of Strzok’s text messages to his mistress FBI attorney Lisa Page from December 14, 2016 to May 17, 2017, coverup of important truths to continue the anti-Trump/anti-Russia witch-hunt.
Strzok was removed from Mueller’s investigative team last August, reassigned to a human resources position.
Earlier as FBI Counterespionage Section head, involved in Hillary’s illegal use of her personal server for classified State Department business, he changed the agency’s account of her unlawful behavior from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” an attempt to whitewash her criminality.
At the time, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton issued a statement, saying:
“One can only conclude the FBI and Justice Department (including Mr. Mueller’s operation) wanted to hide the truth about how Strzok’s and Page’s political biases and misconduct have compromised both the Clinton email and Russia collusion investigations.”
Despite the FBI’s attempt to eliminate Strzok/Page communications, “over 50,000 texts” between them were found, according to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, saying:
“So we’re getting insight into exactly what is happening inside the FBI at the highest levels. And who knows who else they might implicate in terms of corruption.”
The FBI is America’s Gestapo, a sinister organization – an enemy of the public, not its protector, as falsely claimed.
In 1945, Harry Truman said “(w)e want no Gestapo or secret police. The FBI is tending in that direction.”
“They are dabbling in sex-life scandals and plain blackmail. J. Edgar Hoover (its first director) would give his right eye to take over, and all congressmen and senators are afraid of him.”
When Hoover died in 1972, Richard Nixon publicly praised his years of public service. Privately he called him a “c..ksucker…a man who will pull down the temple with him, including me.”
The agency is as diabolically sinister now as earlier – with state-of-the-art technology Hoover lacked to do its dirty work.
It’s at war with Trump, Russia and countless other targets, a sworn enemy of the public – its motto “Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity” a colossal Big Lie.
