The conspiracy comes crashing down
To the editor:
It wasn’t supposed to go in this direction.
It was a masterful plan, worthy of a dictator of a banana republic. The country’s leader used the full force of government — FBI, CIA, Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security and a handful of other agencies — to prevent the election of the opposition candidate and to preserve his own “legacy.” They spread lies about the candidate, even going so far as to accuse him of treason.
They concocted, with the aid of a former British spy and a few Russians, a fairy tale of a “dossier” to bolster their case. Then they lied to the FISA court in order to obtain multiple warrants to spy on several American citizens. They also destroyed incriminating evidence, buried exculpatory evidence and leaked classified material to the press. It was mostly illegal, of course, but, hey — when you learn politics in Chicago, the most corrupt city in the nation, laws are meant to be ignored. Unless, of course, they can help your side.
But the USS Russian Collusion hit an iceberg and is taking on water. Like any other rats deserting a sinking ship, the vermin in this incident are all looking out for Numero Uno, turning on the others. James Comey, Andy McCabe, James Clapper, John Brennan, Loretta Lynch and dozens more are all accusing one or more of the others of lying. Dozens have already been fired and are under investigation, more will surely follow. The stench of this trail leads all the way to the former president. He will doubtless assure us that, as with Hillary Clinton’s illegal e-mail server, he didn’t know anything about it until he saw it on the news. But he communicated with Hillary on that server, and there is that troubling email from Lisa Page to Peter Strzok (two of the main characters in this Mongolian cluster-hug): “POTUS wants to know everything we’re doing.” Everything. The whole thing was probably his idea, a perfect example of the “Chicago Way.”
The fake news media were in on it from the get-go. They repeated all the lies as gospel, and some are still sticking with the lies. And plenty of fools believed, and even repeated, those lies. We’ve had one repeat the collusion lies in letters to this paper, over and over again. I could visualize him rubbing his hands together in anticipation at the thought of Trump being frog-marched out of the White House in handcuffs.
But alas, it was not to be. In spite of the massive cheating, Hillary Clinton lost the election. Overnight, behavior the rats expected to be rewarded by Clinton became a liability. It is a classic case of projection, which Democrats have mastered. I believe the proper psychological term for it is “hot mess.” It is, without a doubt, the worst political scandal in this country’s short history.
