Never-Trumper Republicans working on the 2016 election platform, the FBI, the Mueller bunch, disgruntled convention delegates, the Clinton/Steele dossier, smarmy democrats, leftist media, etc., etc. – all combined to get us to where we are now – sham impeachment articles, having nothing at all to with they originally claimed, and heading into a Senate trial.
Here’s how we arrived.
The FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller repeatedly kept alive a damning narrative that investigators knew to be false: namely, that a junior Trump campaign aide as a favor to the Kremlin had “gutted” an anti-Russia and pro-Ukraine plank in the Republican Party platform at the GOP’s 2016 convention.
Federal authorities used this claim to help secure spy warrants on the aide in question, Carter Page, suggesting to the court that he was “an agent of Russia” – even though investigators knew that Page was working for U.S., not Russian, intelligence, and that they had learned from witnesses, emails and other evidence that Page had no role in drafting the Ukraine platform plank.
The revelation is buried in the Justice Department watchdog’s just-released report on FISA surveillance abuses. RealClearInvestigations fleshed out this unreported story with footnotes from the Mueller report and exclusive interviews with Trump campaign officials who worked on the convention platform. read more
