NY Times: Counterintelligence Investigation Was Payback for Trump Firing Comey
We have an actual government of elected officials. And a vast unelected body of officials who pursue their own agendas.
With the Mueller coup, the two have come in direct conflict with one another.
Here's the New York Times narrative.
In the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests, according to former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation.
The inquiry carried explosive implications. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security. Agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence.
The premise here is a tissue of nonsense and lies.
Nobody in the FBI actually believed that Trump was working for the Russians. The upper echelons knew very well that it was a theory put out by an operative working for the Clinton campaign. No amount of plausible deniability by Comey and Co. is going to change that.
But the payback? That part is real.
Everyone knows that if you go up against a Federal or State agency, they will come after you twice as hard. But now they did it to the President of the United States.
