Russian Fan Fiction, Part II

The Left’s Attempt to Derail the Trump Agenda

by Suzanne Eovaldi, staff writer

The bigger issue in the Comey FBI lawsuit filed by the Cause of Action Institute (CoA) involves conflict of interest.  There are just too many questions that his directorship has failed to clarify and this lawsuit is trying to get much needed answers.  A timeline reveals these closely connected dates: March 2, 2017, new AG Jeff Sessions recuses himself from the Russian investigation; April 17, 2017, the CoA lawsuit is filed; May 9, 2017, President Trump fires Comey; May 17, 2017, a mere eight days later, Acting Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein appoints former FBI Director Mueller—a close friend of Comey--Special Council, making the Russian involvement story a formal investigation. Preposterous ramifications involve conflict of interest among Mueller, Comey and Rosenstein, each of whom is a D.C. Justice/FBI insider. The highly visible elephant in this mess involves how much air time the media continue to provide this story as the Obama personal records, Hillary Clinton e-mails and Clinton Foundation issues all seem to have disappeared. 

Another sidebar involves House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) who is calling out "the delay caused by the meeting of Comey and Mueller the real collusion!"  The House member says "Certainly, if that was a Republican situation, everybody would be up in arms."  Franks says neither Mueller nor Comey can credibly deny that they are close friends."  Comey served as a Deputy AG under Mueller during the Bush and Obama years.  Franks points out that collusion of witnesses in a judicial trial NEVER WOULD BE ALLOWED!  Yet Mueller moves to the front lines here as arbiter, chief cook, bottle washer and denominator in what very well is fake news coming out of an internet troll campaign.  And Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Senator Chuck Grassley's letter to Comey on March 6, 2017, is getting little to no media exposure.  According to FoxNews Politics, Grassley's letter states: "There appear to be material inconsistencies between the description of the FBI's relationship with Mr. Steele that you did provide in your briefing and information contained in Justice Department documents made available to the Committee only after the briefing." Grassley, too, is asking the FBI if it paid Steele in connection with the "dossier" compilation. 

"This is a real bombshell!" says Dick Morris. "This means the FBI may have funded the phony, pre-election narrative linking Trump to a Russian conspiracy." (1) The pundit, a former senior President Clinton advisor, muses that "if the FBI did fund Steele's mudslinging," the entire media driven firestorm about Russian meddling is just masking former FBI Director Mueller's INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATOR status.  The first legal action taken by the CoA against the FBI states as fact: a request "seeking access to records whether the FBI paid, or caused to be paid, money to Christopher Steele for any purpose."  On two occasions in March, the agency acknowledged receipt of the FOIA request.  However, CoA went back into court because the "institute has had no further communications with the IRS regarding this FOIA request. . .the FBI has not issued a final determination on or produced any records responsive" to the Steele records request and has failed to comply with statutory deadlines. 

Meanwhile, the media continue to bash President Trump and now family members, especially Donald Trump, Jr. The media are not being even handed and therefore are leaving themselves open to partisan driven hypocrisy in the eyes of many voters which see this as just more political theatre.  The conflict of interest of insiders and governmental agencies is obvious yet ignored by virtually every member of the Fourth Estate. Is so much fan fiction merely a continuing effort to bind and block the people's agenda and President Trump's administration?
