About That Contingency Plan

Back in October I wrote a shortish blog (by my usual standards) called The Russia Hoax As Contingency Plan, in which I argued that the Russia Hoax was developed as a contingency plan to steal the presidential election in case Hillary lost. I noted that while the Russia Hoax really took off just before and after the election, it actually had deep roots, all the way back to at least early Spring of 2016.

And now we get confirmation of that from no less authoritative a source than Christopher Steele himself!

When last we heard of Christopher he was embroiled in a law suit in London:

Christopher Steele was dragged into court in a defamation suit filed by three Russian bankers in London who claim they were smeared in a discredited Slate article about a computer server, Trump Tower and Moscow’s Alfa Bank — the three Russian bankers, Mikhail Fridman, Petr Aven and German Khan also filed a lawsuit against gutter oppo research firm Fusion GPS.

The Gateway Pundit notes that Slate's fake news story about the Alfa Bank was tweeted out by Hillary Clinton just one week before the election, based on hot new "information" that Christopher had just dreamed up in report 112 of his "dossier".

Steele has just responded to interrogatories in the case, and the Washington Times has provided us with one response:

Mr. Steele wrote: “Fusion’s immediate client was law firm Perkins Coie. It engaged Fusion to obtain information necessary for Perkins Coie LLP to provide legal advice on the potential impact of Russian involvement on the legal validity of the outcome of the 2016 US Presidential election.
“Based on that advice, parties such as the Democratic National Committee and HFACC Inc. (also known as ‘Hillary for America’) could consider steps they would be legally entitled to take to challenge the validity of the outcome of that election.”

And here's an image of the original, per Sean Davis, including the questions Steele was responding to:

And there you have it: Russia Hoax as contingency plan. I'd call it official now. And this is what's been behind "the resistance" for the past two years. A Russia Hoax dreamed up by an agent of a Foreign Power to overturn a US election. Any bets on the amount of column space or air time this will get in the MSM?

  1. Now go one level deeper and ask why Clinton would take the risk using her political power to coerce senior Obama Administration/CIA/DOJ/FBI officials into committing Class I felonies in order to keep Trump out of office. You certainly wouldn't do that unless the potential adverse impact was very significant. Loss of the presidency affected Clinton's future financial prospects (Clinton Foundation bribery income), but it also opened up the possibility of new investigations into legacy legal matters like the email server and Uranium One. The Clintons want to join the billionaire club, but more importantly, they don't want to go to prison. The ongoing coverup is being fueled by blackmail and payoffs, and will only get more desperate in the coming months. As strange as this sounds, even a coup against a sitting president is small potatoes compared to this larger scandal.
