Just ran across this article on the hill and wow, does it really point out the absurdity of the FBI's "story." It is written by the award winning Sheryl Atkisson, who uncovered the fast and furious scandal. Chuck full of logic and sense, I'm sure our resident lefties will be thoroughly confused.

The 2nd and third paragraph really sum it up:

The best way to prevent the robbery — which is the goal, after all — would be for the FBI to alert all the banks in town. “Be on high alert for suspicious activity,” the FBI could tell the banks. “Report anything suspicious to us. We don’t want you to get robbed.”

Instead, in this fractured fairytale, the FBI followed an oddly less effective, more time-consuming, costlier approach. It focused on just one bank. And, strangely, it picked the bank that was least likely to be robbed because nobody thought it would ever get elected president — excuse me, I mean, because it had almost no cash on hand. (Why would robbers want to rob the bank with no cash?)


But for those who want the nitty gritty she also goes into some of the finer details, like this:

So, to protect this bank owned by the guy the FBI hated, the FBI secretly examined a list of bank employees and identified a few it claimed would be likely to help robbers — or, at least, would not stop a robbery. How did it select these targets? By profiling them based on their pasts.

These particular bank employees, the FBI said, were chosen because they worked long ago with customers who might have known bank robbers in the past — maybe not the particular robbers planning a bank robbery this time, but different people who knew people who were thought to have robbed banks in the past ... or, perhaps, people who thought of robbing banks at some point but never got around to it.


Anyway, the article is a great read and really makes a point as to how completely absurd the story the intelligence community is trying sell, is. Here's a link to the archived version, since the hill is kind of tough to read on mobile

From where i stand, congressmen supporting this narrative are traitors that cannot be trusted.

It's an opinion piece that doesn't contain even a passing attempt to present facts.

EDIT: Perhaps it should also be noted that the title of the article is both mispelled and misquoted.

Here's the actual article at The Hill.

I'll take deflection and conflation for 500, Alex.

That link is right at the top of the archived page.

Yeah, but it's customary to put it in your post, eh?

No problem. I did it for you.

As far as deflection? LOL ... it's an opinion piece with nothing factual about "Spygate/Liegate" in it.

It wasn't presented as anything more than an opinion piece. Thus the deflection. It's also not a piece laying out the facts of spygate. Thus, the conflation.

Two tried and true, loser tactics.

The bank analogy is stupid af.


And so, while all this was going on, the robbers robbed the bank.


Huh? Not only does that really illustrate just how abysmally bad the analogy is, she doesn't even have the timeline right. The "bank" that was "robbed" wasn't of course the Trump campaign. If you want to go with a bank analogy it would be like if bank robbers robbed one bank and deposited the stolen loot in another (the Trump "bank").

By the time the FBI became interested in the Trump campaign, the "robbery" was over.

Just like that is an opinion piece of an opinion piece trying to be passed off as 'fact' ?

No analogy is perfect and searching for weaknesses in the links between the details of the analogy and the details of the actual situation doesn't change anything about the absurdity illustrated by the analogy, it's just a deflection tactic.

The point is: the FBI's actions make no sense if their goal was to stop russian meddling. Their actions make a lot of sense if their goal was to frame the trump campaign.

I think the perfect analogy of what the FBI did is terrorists.

Wasn't one until they create them.

So everyone who doesn't agree is a "traitor?" Even if you are 100% convinced of *whatever*, don't you think that's a bit much? Would you call Nixon a traitor? Should he have been executed? After all, the sitting President's campaign used (in addition to everything else he did) ex-CIA agents to break into the HQ of the opposition party to steal documents for political benefit? Firing squad for the whole lot?

How about Reagan? Reagan's campaign is alleged to have used ex-CIA agents to steal briefing material for the sitting President of the United States, material which possibly contained classified information. Documents that were then given to the Reagan campaign. His VP, former CIA director George Bush, was implicated.

Funny how Reagan is still somebody that Republicans hold in high regard. Somebody that Trump and his mouthpieces have compared him to. Strange that this hotbed of traitors managed to regain the White House after 8 years with a booming economy with the other party's guy in the WH, after impeaching him for lying about an affair with an intern. They didn't even have to bring in new blood, they just ran the unqualified son of the top living "traitor" from their ring of "traitors."

Meanwhile, you're calling people traitors for not sharing your view of what I would consider a legitimate counterintelligence investigation which narrowly focused on the legitimate subjects. If you're going to use that word in these circumstances, we're going to need a couple new words: one to describe people who are known to have actually spied for political purposes and another to describe actual traitors.

The entire Russian narrative/investigation is based on speculation and heresy. The only indictments to come forward thus far are for Russians, and it was thought, oh they will never show up however they did show up for their day in court and are going to defend themselves, one of the indictments is against a company which did not exist when the crime was committed.

The indictments for lying are simple arm twisting by prosecutors to get someone to talk, even the FBI says Flynn was not lying.

Manaforts indictments is based on an earlier investigation for which no charges resulted at the time and has nothing to do with the campaign or the Russians. Just another boogie man story conjured up to explain Hillary's loss and now to cover the FBI's bungle in the real jungle that is the DC swamp

Because it is exactly what they want him to do...fire people so they can scream obstruction of justice. He is able to fire the FBI Director but as soon as he did they start screaming OBSTRUCTION....IMPEACH...the story for months has been Trump will fire Mueller but he has not and why...because they want him to so they can scream...OBSTRUCTION...IMPEACH...he isn't playing the game the way they want him too...instead he is taking care of business and letting this thing fall flat

Isn't it all the same thing ? They are lying about spies in the campaign which lead to the investigation which lead to the lie...its all built on the same spies and the same lie

Any trump appointee could fire them too.. sessions, whoever..

Um.... so trump has proof they set him up, but is choosing not to use it because they would accuse him of obstruction?!?!

What?!?! Lol


There is no classified information trump can’t declassify.. he would just have to declassify to for everyone..

So he could declassify whatever documents then who could charge him with obstruction for firing someone after committing fraud?!!

IMO
The FBI needs to be disbanded, reconstructed and maybe even repurposed until its replaced entirely by what ever the hell replaces it.

The Federal Investigative Agency would be nice. Oh and if they could actually investigate all organized crime as a safeguard to our country and its government that would be great. Just a thought. Thanks.

Because who even thinks the FBI is doing its job at this moment, in the true spirit of its supposed sacred purpose.
