Today’s paragraph comes to us from Andrew McCarthy, former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York and current contributor to, among other media outlets, National Review.
In my opinion, Mr. McCarthy has consistently written the most knowledgeable, reasoned pieces about both alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, and the Clinton campaign’s dirty hands in this matter. His December 23 commentary is no exception.
Its title and sub-title:
Was the Steele Dossier the FBI’s ‘Insurance Policy’?
Clinton campaign propaganda appears to have triggered Obama administration spying on Trump’s campaign.
Here is its last paragraph:
In conclusion, while there is a dearth of evidence to date that the Trump campaign colluded in Russia’s cyberespionage attack on the 2016 election, there is abundant evidence that the Obama administration colluded with the Clinton campaign to use the Steele dossier as a vehicle for court-authorized monitoring of the Trump campaign — and to fuel a pre-election media narrative that U.S. intelligence agencies believed Trump was scheming with Russia to lift sanctions if he were elected president. Congress should continue pressing for answers, and President Trump should order the Justice Department and FBI to cooperate rather than — what’s the word? — resist.
I award Andrew McCarthy Paragraph Of The Day honors for providing the facts and reasoned logic to come to the above conclusions…
with the caveat that, to fully understand them, it is imperative that you user the link I’ve provided above to read his entire piece…which I, of course, urge you to do.
I wish everyone in the country would do so as well.
