Undemocratic Dems to Push Continued Russiagate Witch Hunt in 2019

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

In October 2016, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) willfully and maliciously deceived Congress and the public – falsely claiming the US intelligence community has high confidence that Russia interfered in the US electoral process.

It was and continues to be a Big Lie that won’t die!

In January 2017, DNI escalated things – falsely claiming Vladimir Putin personally ordered an “influence campaign” to favor Trump over Hillary, part of a Kremlin campaign to “undermine public faith in the US democratic process” – more disgraceful Big Lies!

DNI lied claiming Russian intelligence hacked DNC computers. No hacking occurred. Information was leaked by a Dem insider to WikiLeaks.

No Russian interference in America’s electoral process occurred, no improper or illegal meddling in the internal affairs of any countries.

Virtually all defamatory US/UK accusations against Russia in recent years were and continue to be Big Lies. Not a shred of credible evidence supports them – nothing!

House and Senate Russiagate probes since January 2017 found nothing suggesting Kremlin US election meddling. 

The same goes for special counsel Mueller’s witch hunt probe since May 2017, and the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into a possible improper or illegal Trump team/Russia connection.

Everything ongoing since October 2016 has been and continues to be an effort to delegitimize Trump for triumphing over media darling Hillary when he was supposed to lose.

It’s also about endlessly bashing Russia for its sovereign independence, opposition to Washington’s imperial agenda, its involvement in Syria combating US-supported terrorists, along with pursuing peace and multi-world polarity – an agenda polar opposite the way Republicans and undemocratic Dems operate.

US media are complicit in assuring the Big Lie about (nonexistent) Russian meddling doesn’t die – nor will it as long as Trump remains in office, perhaps continuing after he’s gone, for sure endless Russia bashing in some form.

Undemocratic Dems, media mouthpieces, and related dark forces want LT delegitimized and removed from office – for the wrong reasons.

Militantly Russophobic, anti-Trump House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff said he intends continued probes into the (nonexistent) Trump/Russia ties.

He lied claiming a “pretty damning portrait” already emerged about a (nonexistent) Trump/Russia connection. “We will pursue the investigation,” he roared.

House Oversight Committee chairman Elijah Cummings said he plans to investigate whether Trump personally profited from a Russia connection as president, saying:

“We want to…see…exactly how much money is going into his pocket, and try to make a determination whether he’s making decisions in the interests of the American people or his own bottom line.”

Additional Dem-controlled House probes intend going all-out to smear and discredit Trump for the wrong reasons, not the right ones, not what’s most important of all that both right wings of US duopoly governance wholeheartedly support – endless US wars of aggression, smashing nations to control them, massacring millions, flagrantly breaching international, constitutional and US statute laws.

According to Bloomberg News, Russiagate probes may continue for months in the new year – falsely claiming many questions remain unanswered.

With subpoena power, House committee probes may continue throughout the next two years, wasting time and millions of dollars, finding nothing credible about an improper or illegal Trump/Russia connection.

Last November, two years after DLT’s election, Sputnik News explained what’s indisputably clear. Endless months of Russiagate witch hunt probes failed to prove Kremlin US election meddling or collusion between Trump’s team and Russia to help him triumph over Hillary.

Yet witch hunt probes continue. Sputnik asked “where’s the proof” justifying them? Claiming Russia will interfere in the US 2020 presidential election is just as baseless.

Last July, DNI Dan Coats turned truth on its head claiming “warning lights are blinking red again” of (nonexistent) Russian meddling.

Claims about disruptive Russian social media bots involved in sowing dissent turned out to be another Big Lie – exposed by testimonies of Google, Facebook, and Twitter officials to Congress.

The year ahead may be more tumultuous politically than so far throughout Trump’s tenure. Dems aim to discredit and weaken him enough (for the wrong reasons) so their 2020 presidential nominee can replace him – if he’s not removed from office before then or forced to resign.

Long before the age of television, writer Finley Peter Dunne once said the following: 

“Sure, politics ain’t bean-bag. ‘Tis a man’s game, an’ women, childer, cripples an’ prohybitionists ‘d do well to keep out iv it.”

Democracy in America is pure fantasy, the best money can buy, defiling world peace and the public welfare – a system too debauched to fix, both extremist right wings of duopoly governance to blame.

The same goes for the nation’s deplorable major media, a collective mouthpiece for dark forces, a propaganda machine, a disgrace to what journalism is supposed to be.
