Orwellian Cloud Hovers Over Russia-gate | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Orwellian Cloud Hovers Over Russia-gate

George Orwell would have been in stitches Wednesday watching Attorney General William Barr and members of the Senate Judiciary Committee spar on Russia-gate. The hearing had the hallmarks of the intentionally or naively blind leading the blind with political shamelessness.

From time to time the discussion turned to the absence of a legal “predicate” to investigate President Donald Trump for colluding with Russia. That is, of course, important; and we can expect to hear a lot more about that in coming months.

More important: what remains unacknowledged is the absence of an evidence-based major premise that should have been in place to anchor the rhetoric and accusations about Russia-gate over the past three years. With a lack of evidence sufficient to support a major premise, any syllogism falls of its own weight.

The major premise that Russia hacked into the Democratic National Committee and gave WikiLeaks highly embarrassing emails cannot bear close scrutiny. Yes, former CIA Director John Brennan has told Congress he does not “do evidence.” In the same odd vein, Brennan’s former FBI counterpart James Comey chose not to “do evidence” when he failed to seize and inspect the DNC computers that a contractor-of-ill-repute working for the DNC claimed were hacked by Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russiagate was a lie from inception to its agonizingly slow death, as of the end of last week; the American people do not like to be lied to.

For all those players who believed that the Dementocrats were so clever, to have come up with this, a word of caution; Russiagate is about to explode like a bad trick cigar.

And when that happens, there is no one the Democrats can run in 2020 who will be able to save it from another massive route.
