Sure, the Dems are still planning to continue their impeachment theater with Team Mueller showing up, we think, for testimony before Congress. Butt Trey Gowdy's Fox interview last night was instructive--Gowdy was totally dismissive, writing the whole exercise off as theater that would produce nothing new. And might even turn out to be a shot to the foot for the Dems. Moreover, the general public has long since discounted it all. It's just the Dems going through the motions, as Gowdy indicated.
Meanwhile, Barr and Durham are focusing on the Intelligence Community Assessment--the foundation of the whole Russia Hoax narrative. And as if on cue Judge Dabney Friedrich in New York extracted an admission from Mueller that the whole much vaunted Russian troll farm narrative was, yes, a hoax. No connection to the Russian government. And so Judge Friedrich instructed Mueller and his minions to just shut up about it. That is devestating for the ICA's overall narrative, given that there is still no evidence of the other prong of the narrative: Russian "hacking." Who thinks that Team Mueller wants to face questioning under oath on these matters--especially with Barr and Durham sniffing around? When they're not looking into the Brit and Ukrainian angles that point directly at the Clinton/Obama establishment.
Not only that, but news that DNI Dan Coats' days are numbered is a clear signal of just how serious Trump and Barr are. Declass will happen.
And as if all that weren't bad enough there's another double whammy: Open civil war among the Dems, both in the House and on the campaign trail, with the SJW wing of the party savaging the Pelosi establishment wing and dragging them ever leftward. And the Epstein cancer is now threatening to go metastatic, taking down "some of our faves," as Pelosi's daughter tweeted.
And there's so much more. These dog days could well last right through the 2020 election.
And so here's a selection from a blog at Zerohedge, by James Kunstler, that explains why I've been linking the Russia Hoax with the Epstein affair. Hmmm. Come to think of it, there's no catchy title for that yet? Pedogate? Anyway ... Nemesis Rising!
Can there be any shred of doubt left in this land that if anyone “colluded” with Russians to interfere in the 2016 election it was the Clinton Campaign’s Fusion GPS disinformation unit, which assembled The Narrative, with the assistance of CIA Director John Brennan, and peddled it to the willfully credulous FBI led by James Comey and the news media. We won’t rehash any more of this excruciatingly complex criminal project, except to note that it is now unraveling with equally painful blowback to the people responsible, including Hillary Rodham Clinton who may be liable for a heap of felony charges in the matter.
All of that nasty business may redound to the various intrigues emanating from HRC’s years as Secretary of State, namely the fantastic hoovering up of hundreds of millions of dollars by the Clinton Foundation from foreign parties doing business with the State Department, including the Russian Federation. How did all that indecency slip through the cracks? Once again, the media ignored it because it would not advance their interests in gender and identity politics to investigate the avatar of the party promoting those crusades. And because the Obama Justice Department under Loretta Lynch deliberately looked the other way for similar reasons.￼
And now there is the Epstein matter, which threatens not only former president Bill Clinton, but a cosmos of political, financial, and entertainment “stars” in countless ugly incidents that involve a kind of personal corruption that has no political context but says an awful lot about the obliteration of moral and ethical boundaries by the people who ended up running things in this fretful moment of US history. President Clinton has already kicked off this debacle by lying to the media about the number of rides he took on Mr. Epstein’s notorious airplane.
