Former Vice President Joe Biden may soon find himself between a rock and a hard place. For some unknown reason he is still the Democratic front runner to receive his party’s nomination for president next year. Every time 76-year-old Sleepy Joe opens his mouth he creates more problems for himself. So why are the Democrats sticking with Biden?
Just as sure as Cat-5 Hurricane Dorian tore up the northern Bahama Islands this week, U.S. Attorney General William Barr is about to unleash the laws of the land and issue indictments to a potential boat load of former and possibly current U.S. government officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Department of Justice and the various national security agencies. So what’s the connection between this mess and Biden?
Barr and his investigative teams are looking into just how did this bogus Russia-Trump campaign collusion investigation — that began under the direction of former FBI Director James Comey – get started and why? How far up the line did this go? Comey and his cronies at the FBI and DOJ obviously took direction from above in order to gain secret surveillance warrants against members of then presidential candidate Donald Trump’s campaign staff – primarily Carter Page.
This whole scenario is steeped in political intrigue worthy of a full-blown Hollywood movie. We know what we don’t know but we are all about to learn if former top Obama-Biden administration officials had any part in creating the now proven fake Trump Dossier that was used to secure the surveillance warrants to spy on Page. This phony Trump Dossier, according to news reports, was paid for by the Hillary Clinton Campaign for President and the Democratic National Committee. Millions of dollars in campaign contributions to both entities were used to pay for this fake document that became the driving force to gets the surveillance warrants approve by a federal judge after first being denied. It’s a sure bet these payments violated campaign finance laws.
Comey and his cronies needed more ammunition so up popped the Trump Dossier that Comey and others certified as being authentic, credible ‘top-secret’ information about candidate Trump. But it was all crap.
Here’s the clincher. It’s no secret about the many anti-Trump text messages that took place between FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page who both were central figures to the Russia-Trump campaign collusion investigation. The key text whose true meaning remains unknown was sent between the two on Aug 5, 2016 and it read “The White House is running this.” If there ever was a smoking gun it’s that text message and this is what Barr and his teams are investigating.
The closer Barr’s investigation gets to President Obama himself the hotter it will get for Biden. With 14-months to go before the national election of 2020 Barr’s presumed indictments will come down long before November 2020. These new defendants will all plead ‘not-guilty’ which means court dates will be set and let the long drawn out trials begin all the while Campaign 2020 goes on.
The Democrats are sticking with Biden because by chance if he unseats President Trump as many polls suggest he will, Biden will fire Barr and his investigative teams in an attempt to salvage what little legacy President Obama has left. This political show will end like a dust devil on a dry baseball field – gone with the wind.
President Trump has vowed publicly many times that the illegal spying on his campaign staff — that are American citizens — and the subsequent bogus investigations should never again happen to him or to any other presidential candidate in any political party. Bulldog Barr intends to collapse the ‘Deep State.’
