    How the Clinton-Emails Investigation Intertwined with the Russia Probe

    A tangled web of illicit moves by the Øbama Administration and his intelligence agency heads.


    How the Clinton-Emails Investigation Intertwined with the Russia Probe


    "Cruz just dropped out of the race. It’s going to be a Clinton Trump race. Unbelievable.”

    It was a little after midnight on May 4, 2016. FBI lawyer Lisa Page was texting her paramour, FBI counterespionage agent Peter Strzok, about the most stunning development to date in the 2016 campaign: Donald Trump was now the inevitable Republican nominee. He would square off against Hillary Clinton, the Democrats’ certain standard-bearer.


    The race was set . . . between two major-party candidates who were both under investigation by the FBI.

    ...

    In stunned response, Strzok wrote what may be the only words we need to know, the words that reflected the mindset of his agency’s leadership and of the Obama administration: “Now the pressure really starts to finish MYE.”

    MYE. That’s Mid-Year Exam, the code-word the FBI had given to the Hillary Clinton emails probe.

    “It sure does,” responded Page. Mind you, she was not just any FBI lawyer; she was counsel and confidant to the bureau’s No. 2 official, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

    If the thousands of text messages between Ms. Page and Agent Strzok are clear on anything, they are clear on the thinking of the bureau’s top brass.

    In its Trump antipathy, the media-Democrat complex has admonished us to ignore the Strzok-Page texts. FBI officials are as entitled as anyone else to their political opinions, we’re told; and if they found Trump loathsome, they were no different from half the country.

    That’s the wrong way to look at it. Regardless of their politics (which, the texts show, are not as left-wing as some conservative-media hyperbole claims), these FBI officials are a window into how the Obama administration regarded the two investigations in which Strzok and Page were central players: Mid Year Exam and Trump-Russia — the latter eventually code-named “Crossfire Hurricane.”

    The two investigations must not be compartmentalized. Manifestly, the FBI saw them as inseparably linked: Trump’s victory in the primaries, the opening of his path to the Oval Office, meant — first and foremost — that the Hillary investigation had to be brought to a close.

    And that is because bringing it to a close was already known, by May 4, to mean closing it without charges — opening her path to the Oval Office. It was the calculation of the FBI, the Obama Justice Department, the Obama-led intelligence agencies, and the Obama White House that wrapping up MYE was essential to stopping Donald Trump.

    This the very site that heavily promoted the 'birther' BS and gave it currency. Be very sceptical.

    For more than a year, Obama relied on conventional means to confront the blogosphere’s superheated rumour mill—to little effect. The “fact-check” feature on his website, for instance, only seemed to spawn more, and wilder, rumours. A mention there of Obama‘s birth certificate spurred National Review Online to demand that he produce it to dispel groundless reports that Obama was actually born in Kenya and therefore would be constitutionally ineligible to be President; that his middle name is not Hussein but Muhammad; and that his mother actually named him Barry. That National Review article in turn became fodder for cable television.

    It snowballed from there to be promoted by A. Jones and all the other internet bottom feeder sites.

    Sorry, but I think you're sorely mistaken on that:

    Well, that would be Time and Wikipedia that would be mistaken, but I do retract 'promoted' and substitute it with 'created' or 'initiated' for accuracy.

    On June 9, 2008, Jim Geraghty of the conservative website National Review Online suggested that Obama release his birth certificate.[36][37] Geraghty wrote that releasing his birth certificate could debunk several false rumors circulating on the Internet, namely: that his middle name was originally Muhammad rather than Hussein; that his mother had originally named him "Barry" rather than "Barack"; and that Barack Obama Sr. was not his biological father, as well as the rumor that Barack Obama was not a natural-born citizen.[37][38][39]
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barack..._of_the_claims

    Geraghty may have suggested he produce the birth certificate but neither he nor NR "heavily promoted" (or promoted at all) the birther BS. Instead, when you look back at the articles they've run on it, they've called it BS and those promoting it conspiracy theorists.

    NR is a conservative publication - no question about that. But it's far from sketchy. Also recall that NR published the infamous "Conservatives Against Trump"/Never Trump edition which torqued the MAGA crowd.

    Immaterial to asserting the bias of a site. Is 'Global Research valid because 'x' is not a 9/11 truther?

    False.
