The Real Truth about Russian Interference in the 2016 Election
With the passage of enough time, the truth has a tendency to come out and it often bites one right where he sits. So goes the obsession of Democrats and their quixotic quest to find guilt with Donald Trump concerning Russian interference in the 2016 election.
So convinced in their wee little minds that the Trump campaign must have colluded with Vladimir Putin to deny Hillary Clinton the presidency, that all of the eggs they have thrown at the president have now landed back in their own faces. As it turns out, the Russian interference in the 2016 election was the fault of…yes, Barack Obama.
It is recalled that it was Barack Obama who infamously said to then-president of the Russian Federation, Dmitri Medvedev, “Tell Vladimir (Putin) that I will have more flexibility after the election,” referring to Obama’s own re-election campaign. The promise to Putin, caught on a “hot mic” shortly before the 2012 election, evidently referred to Obama’s reluctance to take action against Russia for all the many bad things that they were up to…Syria, Ukraine, their ties to Iran and, as it now seems, interference in the presidential election of 2016.
With regards to the latter, it really doesn’t matter that it was the Democratic National Committee whose confidential e-mails were hacked. The Russians tried to do the same thing to the Republican National Committee, but the Republicans had a better firewall than the Democrats and the Russians failed to hack into the GOP. When the FBI asked the DNC to turn over their own server, they refused to do so in order to conceal their own collusion with Hillary Clinton’s campaign against Bernie Sanders.
Apparently, Barack Obama knew about such interference as early as the late summer of 2016 and, during a meeting with Putin in September of that year, told him to “knock it off.” Yet, the president failed to reveal these shenanigans to either the Clinton or the Trump campaigns because he did not want to rock the boat in an election which he was certain that Hillary would win.
Why else would Obama say nothing and do nothing when he found out about the tampering?
Obama publicly revealed the tampering only after Trump won the upset victory, and put into motion a misinformation campaign to lay the blame on Trump and his campaign. It was Obama and his administration who colluded with the FBI, his Democrat caucus in Congress, their allies in the mainstream media and NeverTrump Republicans to try and blame Trump and his associates, but alas…
…there was, and is, no evidence that Trump and his campaign did any such thing.
Not deterred by the lack of such evidence, former FBI Director James Comey repeatedly leaked information to the media in an effort to cast aspersions on Trump, all in an effort to have an independent counsel named to explore the matter further. In the absence of any evidence to support Trump’s involvement, his mentor Robert Mueller, who was thus selected as that independent counsel, has now appointed a cadre of high profile attorneys, all of whom are Clinton supporters including one who successfully fought FOIA requests for documents related to the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private server while Secretary of State. Their goal is to dig up enough dirt on Donald Trump to bring about his impeachment, fulfilling the desire of Democrats, NeverTrump Republicans (they’re the ones who keep insisting that Comey and Mueller are beyond partisan reproach), the mainstream media, and “Deep State” of Obama and Clinton loyalists throughout the federal government.
No doubt, all of these nefarious forces will surely and eventually find something, anything to upend the result of last year’s presidential election, and the real cost to the nation will be the survival of representative democracy in the United States.
Yet in the long run, history- real history will bear witness to the extreme amount of corruption within the Obama administration, the Clintons, the mainstream media and the “Deep State” that exists within the federal government because the truth, in the end, always comes out.
