We're not getting definite information, but we are getting hints or suggestions that China may have been involved in the election fraud--probably through some tie in to Dominion. You may also remember that we discussed recently the fact--and this is a fact--that the FBI had a FISA on Patrick Ho. Andy McCarthy and Chuck Ross have written about this, cf. Highly Recommended--A Collusion Tale: China and the Bidens:
United States intelligence agencies clearly took notice. As the Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross reports, our government obtained at least one FISA surveillance warrant that yielded evidence against Chi Ping Patrick Ho, one of CEFC’s heavyweights. The surveillance authorized by the FISA court included electronic eavesdropping as well as physical searching.
As Russiagate and the challenges to investigating it have made painfully clear, FISA surveillance is classified. The government applications and evidentiary showings that lead to it are closely guarded national-security secrets. Even on the rare occasions when evidence derived from FISA surveillance is used in court, as it was in Ho’s eventual prosecution for corruption crimes, the lawyers for the defendant and the trial prosecutors are not informed of the factual basis that predicated the surveillance. The full breadth of the counterintelligence investigation is not revealed publicly. The full range of targets remains secret, and we learn neither how long the monitoring went on nor what specific intelligence-gathering methods were employed.
Is it far fetched to think that the FISA was picking up the Bidens--Hunter and Joe and Jim? I don't think that's far fetched at all. To the contrary, I'd be surprised if that were not the case. Imagine the kinds of things that might have been discussed! Trump, politics, a presidential run? Why not?
Be that as it may, Seth J. Levy is offering a theory, a big picture theory of what's been going on, which of course suggests that there could be some big things coming down the line. See what you think:
1/ Ok I’m going to briefly lay out a speculative theory that fits what we currently know.
2/ I’m speculating that China acted to interfere in the election.
Trump admin, via CIA, DOJ, State and other agencies were aware and monitoring.
3/ They followed the Obama precedent and monitored instead of intervening.
4/ They are able to know, because of their monitoring, that Trump won based on the legal ballots.
5/ As it is an active investigation, Trump can’t discuss it publicly. The details also could not be shared with his campaign. So any campaign efforts would need to be based on public information and information collected by the campaign.
6/ That scenario would explain why Barr and Haspel went to see McConnell and why McConnell is supporting Trump in contesting an election that seems lost.
Lindsey Graham is also supporting Trump. Graham isn't part of the Gang of Eight, but he does have oversight of DoJ and FBI. This investigation would be an FBI investigation.
7/ It could also explain why the Trump admin is avoiding briefing Biden, particularly if, as I suspect, Biden is unaware of China’s actions. Remember Trump says it can never happen to another President what they did to him and Flynn. They used the briefing to target.
8/ This would be an incredibly sensitive investigation and would require only certain people be read in. Which would explain why Republican Senators unaware are saying Biden should be briefed while McConnell is not. They haven’t been read in.
9/ This would also explain why Pompeo is so certain there will be a second term. Something the Secretary of State doesn’t say from the State Department podium lightly.
10/ Anyway again this is speculation. /end
Hey, it's a theory.
