Even though Dick Morris was dead wrong on the outcome of the 2012 presidential election when he predicted a Mitt Romney victory, he is right much of the time. In a video posted on Facebook last week, Dick discussed the Russian hacking story and couched it in a simplistic manner which all of us can understand and refer to as this unravels. And believe me, there is still an amount of unraveling to be done.
In the opening of his video, Dick indicated that Obama was leading a “Coup d’ Etat” in hopes that his activities and the activities of those who are with him, after many months, will lead to the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Obama and his henchmen are attempting to transform the Hillary email and wiki leaks scandal into an attempt by the Russians to hack into the 2016 presidential election and influence the outcome. Their plans were to make the Russians radioactive, blaming them for all the leaks which may or may not have been the case. Dick also surmised that Obama’s group would create false documents and false evidence if they couldn’t find anything through their investigations.
Then they keep playing the chorus in the background about the Russian hacking and how it influenced the 2016 election. Then have the FBI, still under Obama’s jurisdiction tap the phones of the folks working for the Trump campaign and, of course, the Russians.
The next step would be to ambush the appointees to say things in their confirmation hearings that while technically true, could be min-interpreted to lay the bait for future investigations.
Their first victim was Michael Flynn, who was confirmed by the Senate as National Security Adviser, but then resigned after allegedly giving false information to Vice President Pence. The Obama group was particularly into getting rid of Flynn because of the hard lines he took on Iran and other issues, much harder than those taken by Trump’s Secretary of Defense, Maddis, and Trump’s Secretary of State, Tillerson.
Next came the confirmation hearing of the president’s pick for Attorney General, Jeff Sessions. When Sessions was asked about having contact with the Russians, particularly the Russian Ambassador during the campaign, Sessions responded negatively thinking the question was about having contact with the Russian Ambassador regarding the Trump campaign in which the Attorney General indicated that he was a surrogate.
As a member of the Armed Services Committee, the former Senator would meet regularly with Ambassadors, including the Russian Ambassador. In fact, one of the meetings that the Democrats are pointing to was a brief unplanned encounter with the Russian Ambassador following a speech that Sessions had made. Other Senators were also around having conversations.
Once trapped into a supposed lie, the Democrats put pressure on Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from any investigation involving the alleged Russian hacking, which he did.
The next step is to demand a special prosecutor to investigate. The actions of a special prosecutor cannot be limited. It is his or her purpose to bring the president to impeachment. Then gather intelligence from lower level operatives, many of which are career people who may or may not have been hired during the Obama Administration, and some who are political appointees.
Because of the delay in the confirmation of President Trump’s secretaries, the president can’t get to the firing and re-hiring and appointing of new lower level operatives.
According to Dick, this is without precedent and is being micromanaged by Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, and Valerie Jarrett.
As everyone knows, the Democrats are still acting like small children not getting their way because their candidate lost the presidential election. And, they were so sure that they were going to win. This coup by Obama and the Democrats has made this country look like e banana republic. The United States has always prided itself in how the transfer of power from one administration to the next administration was handled.
What’s going to happen? Are the Democrats going to continue with their agenda, pushing their lies in hopes that one day folks will believe them? Or will the Republicans finally grow a pair and fight back? While Republicans have never been known to grow a pair and fight back, the future of this country depends on it now.
