Wondering about the slow pace? What happened to that foot and a half tall stack?
According to Kash Patel, the declassified docs are being withheld by DOJ. Huge failure by Trump's people to let that happen. I suppose we need to be grateful that someone got them to Solomon, even if that someone might now face problems from Horowitz.— Hans Mahncke (@HansMahncke) January 26, 2021
Yes, as I noted previously, John Solomon did appear to have the slightly less-redacted versions of the FBI material. Does he have some? All? His latest article at Just the News is worthwhile. It is now publically available information that Stefan Halper was sent by the FBI sent to SPY on Carter Page. To no one's surprise who can fog a mirror, or is not totally corrupt (looking at you Jim Comey), Carter Page was and is totally innocent. We will see what comes next, but I suspect that CP's lawyers just sent a bottle of very old, very good Scotch to John Solomon. Let's hope that there is more to come! Neil in SD.ReplyDelete
Hypothesis du jour:ReplyDelete
Trump and his team had to be aware there were dick heads at DOJ who would likely try to obstruct the release of the declassified docs until Trump left office, especially if the declassification/release order came in the last few days of his term in office. If they suspected it, they surely developed a plan to circumvent it.
One way would be for Trump, upon issuing the order to declassify and release the documents as proposed for release, to quietly authorize the release of copies in the WH possession to a select group of aides, associates, etc., perhaps with a proviso they agree not to release them to anyone else until DOJ makes them public or Trump tells them to distribute them. I can't think of any law that would prohibit the president authorizing the release of copies of declassified documents in the possession of the WH.
So, I'm betting key people have the docs, and Trump is just waiting for the right moment to tell them to distribute them, like when bad guys start saying things that are contradicted by docs, thinking DOJ has them locked down, so they can lie all they want with impunity.
It's possible Solomon is one person who was a beneficiary of this limited WH distribution, and agreed to only reveal content of specific docs until Trump green-lights further exposure. Alternatively, Solomon has a source in legal possession of the docs, and has agreed to reveal the content of only a select few so far.
If this is remotely true, things should get entertaining.
I applied this logic to election fraud. If they anticipated it, they would have a contingency to circumvent it. How'd that go?Delete
Nah, time to the take the black pill. The bad guys won.
There were too many places and means for Dems to cheat in the election, and GOP couldn't anticipate all of them, and be in all possible places ahead of time.Delete
DOJ was the only place that could delay the release of the declassified docs, since they were all in DOJ's possession. It's a much more obvious and simpler thing to anticipate and counter than election fraud.
It was spent on the negotiation table?ReplyDelete
Or Sullivan is releasing them as he writes an article, in a slow drip.ReplyDelete
I assume you mean "Solomon."Delete
Slow drip is exactly what it feels like; but that could change suddenly.
Yep, mea culpa:Delete
> I assume you mean "Solomon."
His latest article just shredded the fbi obstruction probe into Comey’s firing:
To me, what that suggests is that McCabe--with his established Dem ties to Hillary through Terry McAuliffe--may have been taking direction from Dems in opening the case. But nobody seems to want to investigate this stuff. Where was Bluto?Delete
A quick thought about Solomon's recent articles based on the recently declassified docs:Delete
there appears to be a "common denominator" or theme in Solomon's articles: they all deal with people at the top of DOJ/FBI and are related to CH. The same names keep appearing in multiple articles.
Solomon continues to say his sources tell him Durham is still moving ahead with plans to indict a number of former high level officials in FBI/DOJ, now expected in the next three months (originally expect last Summer, then Fall.)
I get the impression these articles are priming the pump for public awareness in preparation for some of these officials named in the articles to be indicted. IOW, Solomon isn't just randomly writing about what's in the declassified docs; it feels like he's laying out the evidence, slowly and methodically, that supports charging these officials crimes.
The Sperry article seems to have a similar thrust.
And Clinesmith's sentencing is supposed to happen Friday.
Since Jan 20 I've been doing regular tours of the diehard "Trump's still gonna pull this one outta his hat" crowd. It has been interesting to see the pretzel logic roll-out continue. At Brighteon, Vox Popoli, X22 Report, REX, Thomas Wictor, etc., the convoluted explanations have become a flood surge that has erased all traces of their earlier assurances that "Trump--The Master--has got this covered."ReplyDelete
Maybe Trump does have this covered in the sense that he can embarrass a number of coupsters. Is anyone still willing to put money on whether whatever Horowitz reports in the future ends up in indictments? Yeah, I didn't think so.
At this point, sifting through the ashes of the political arson that rendered Trump White Houseless, I'm reminded of the medieval scholasticism arguments about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. Some really fine citizen journalists (Lee, Ross, Mate, Mahncke, McIntyre) have developed amazing knowledge of the intricacies of the RussiaGate affair. They can, have, and could still obliterate the Dem stenographers at the NYT and WaPo. The only problem: nobody cares anymore. Trump waited too long, believed too many backstabbers. I hope he thinks things through a little more thoroughly if there's another go-around for him.
Yeah, PD, nobody cares anymore. Trump waited too long, and let Barr duck his vow to bring Fireworks.Delete
Trump should have purged those agencies--DOJ and FBI in particular--after his inauguration. No later than the first year, at most. Oh well.ReplyDelete
