So John Durham finally did it. The special advocate dropped a real bomb confirming the worst fears of millions of Donald Trump supporters, describing a criminal plot by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016 to spy on Trump’s campaign – and then his White House. That’s cause for celebration for those who have claimed this to be true all along, isn’t it? Actually no.
A look at the timing of this staggering allegation that Clinton’s team hired a sleazy agent to surveil the 45th president before and during his presidency “for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump” will lead to the conclusion that exactly nothing will come of this. Yes, even though what Durham alleges could legitimately be called treason – as it has been by Trump aide Corey Lewandowski, among others – this revelation has already gone the way of the laptop story. by Hunter Biden; buried to protect a candidate who might as well have been nominated by a media outlet that did everything but produce ads for Joe Biden, when he calumny Trump on a daily basis.
Imperfect synchronization – by design
Two elements of timing speak volumes about your disappointment if you expect elite journalists to react like, well, journalists – they are now defenders. First, despite having the full weight of the federal government and the Department of Justice behind its investigation, it took just under three years – yes, three years – for Durham to reach a conclusion long assumed by those who were on the spot. Hillary Clinton’s rank corruption a long time ago.
More importantly, voters in 2020 should have been damn well informed about the illegal activity carried out by one party against the other in 2016. What value do these revelations have – apart from ending any distant hope of another candidacy? Clinton – now that the election that followed the one under investigation is more than 15 months in the rearview mirror? What good is this confirmation of what everyone suspected when voters were deprived of the truth when it came to – before November 2020?
Now, maybe you can explain the more than 1,000 days it took for the fully funded investigation to uncover the truth. There was undoubtedly a lot to sort out. But you can’t do that with the timing of the release: the Saturday of Super Bowl weekend. There’s a well-known saying around DC that if you have any news that reflects well on you, post it early in the week so there’s plenty of time to bask in the prime time afterglow. listen. But if you have to release something that is detrimental to you, do it on a Friday afternoon when everyone is heading into the weekend. Going one step further, sending what should be a triumphant release on one of the few days of the year when almost no one is focusing on the news sends a deeply unsettling message. Durham threw a bomb, but wants to bury it. How is it possible ?
Well, as far as his reputation as a high-flying prosecutor stretches in Durham, so does his longstanding and certified membership in the Deep State – the permanent, rotating bureaucracy to which people like him belong – and which suffers no influence outside its circle. . . Duty compelled this lawyer who served as a government prosecutor for 45 years to publish his findings, but not to do so at a time that could embarrass other members of the Deep State Guild — and help Trump.
And of course, true to the “see nothing, hear nothing, say nothing” precedent set in the 2020 election, this freshly revealed scandal didn’t even deserve a mention in the “official gazette.” But then we knew that this once-respectable publication — and the left-leaning rags across the country who follow it like a Pied Piper — sold their souls to the patella Trump long ago, and they will hardly leave a mere plot. betrayed by one of their party exes – the golden girls are stopping them from completing their designated rounds when they just have to do what they did with Hunter Biden’s outrageous story – ignore her .
The only reason these fake journalists are even willing to ask Biden tougher questions than his favorite ice cream is that his disastrous presidency – which they gave up their journalistic integrity to ensure – has now embarrassed them so badly. Could anyone really believe that Putin would be massing troops on the Ukrainian border or that our southern border would be overrun, inflation would rage and a crime wave would persist if Trump was still in the White House? Or is it mere coincidence that Putin kept his powder dry during the Trump era – then started shaking his sabers as soon as Biden set foot in the Oval Office? You can bet that the gassy corporate media will continue to turn into pretzels for postulating that what you see with your own eyes is just an illusion.
Never say never
Durham’s timing in the heart of Super Bowl weekend makes the job of the media all the easier, since their goal is to ensure that Donald Trump – or anyone of “his ilk” as Hillary recently put it in his typically inartistic way – never allowed to set foot on their territory again. Hell, they now wear a full-fledged 2020 plot to eliminate Trump as a badge of honor, evidenced by the seminal post-election article in Time magazine bragging on the astonishing depth and breadth of the conspiracy, describing it as “a well-funded cabal of powerful people, spanning all sectors and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer the media coverage and controlling the flow of information.”
Of course, since he succeeded in unseating Trump, you can be sure that another like-minded coalition will be assembled and ready to do almost anything – legal or illegal – to prevent another Trump victory. And they will hardly let the corruption and criminal activities of any of their chosen ships stand in the way.
But that scandal won’t amount to much either, because most Trump supporters were already convinced of the plot to destroy their man, both in 2016 and 2020, and the rest of the country will never know about it. these actions – which could well result in serious prison sentences. time – because the media will bury it. A survey of swing state voters after the 20 election found that at least half of voters had No knowledge of the story of the Hunter Biden laptop, but had they been made aware of the shocking contents of the laptop, the election result would have been reversed. Lesson: Given their success in destroying Trump by withholding a major story, the media is now more emboldened than ever to simply ignore even stories of enormous importance.
Ultimately, like so many of his other proclamations that were immediately dismissed by the advocacy media as crazy or paranoid, what Trump and his supporters had been alleging from the start of a plot to torpedo his 2016 campaign and presidency has now turned out to be entirely true – and if anything, worse than we could have imagined. The only question now is how much Following militant, this revelation will make the 45th president and his group of fiercely loyal – and furious – supporters determined to turn 45 into 47.
