Rosenstein & Comey (FOX News)

Unless Obama administration and Hillary Clinton campaign officials face indictments, Democrats could do very well in the 2018 midterms. They will likely take control of the House of Representatives. Consequently, they will impeach Donald Trump. They are that crazy.

Conversely, Republican voters know that Hillary Clinton committed multiple felonies. She did so when she had a private email server installed in her home, on which she trafficked in classified information. The FBI granted five people immunity and recommended the Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecute no one.

Now we know Obama administration officials committed multiple felonies as well – in Watergate 2.0.

Hillary’s team worked hand-in-hand with the Obama administration. Hillary and the DNC hired Fusion GPS in June of 2016 to dig up dirt on Trump. Fusion GPS hired former British spy Christopher Steele to get that dirt from the Russians. Steele then handed a “salacious and unverified” dossier that he created, to the FBI. The FBI then used that dossier as the basis for a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign and presidency.

Watergate and Watergate 2.0

This truly is Watergate 2.0 but with 21st century technology and corrupt institutions. In 1972, Nixon hired people outside government institutions to do the dirty work. Five Watergate burglars were arrested on June 19, 1972. By January of 1973, people went to jail. By February, one of the incarcerated blew the scandal open and sang like a canary.

That is what we need in Watergate 2.0 and soon.

In this scandal, the Obama administration co-opted the DOJ and FBI to do the same thing those burglars did in 1972.

Yet, no one has been indicted and Congress is the only body investigating. The one man responsible for holding guilty players accountable has recused himself from the case without reason; that would be Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Republican Voters Will Throw up Their Hands in 2018 if Justice not done

We’ve been here before. The three biggest scandals during the Obama administration were Operation Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting of conservatives and Benghazi. In each case, the smoke was thick and blinding but no one had interest in the fires. Not one person was indicted in any of those scandals.

Republican voters wanted justice but came away jaded in response to rampant corruption and criminality.

Then came Donald Trump. ‘Lock Her Up’ became a common chant at campaign rallies. During one of the debates, Trump even pledged a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary and to put her in jail:

So far, that hasn’t happened. However, since Sessions’ recusal, a co-conspirator in Watergate 2.0 – Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein –  did appoint Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Trump, the same man Rosenstein attempted to undermine.

As was the case with Rosenstein, former FBI Director Robert Mueller III had blatant conflicts of interest when it came to investigating Trump. Mueller preceded James Comey as Director and was a mentor to Comey, whom Trump fired. Instead of a Special Counsel to investigate Hillary, the DNC, the FBI and DOJ, co-conspirator Rosenstein instead directed Mueller to investigate Trump for precisely what Rosenstein was literally a part of himself.

Did AG Sessions Deliver Kiss of Death?

Those skeptical of Sessions and his bonafides as an AG for these times have a valid argument. On the same day the Nunes memo was released, which implicated people like Rosenstein, Sessions publicly praised Rosenstein and the #3 at DOJ behind Rosenstein, Associate Attorney General (AAG) Rachel Brand.

One week later, Brand resigned.

Is it possible that Sessions gave both Rosenstein and Brand the kiss of death?

Mueller’s investigation has netted four indictments – Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Michael Flynn, and George Papadopoulos.

However, his investigation is also slowly falling apart. The man at the center of Mueller’s probe – former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn – was indicted for lying to the FBI. Yet, former FBI Director James Comey told Congress FBI agents didn’t think Flynn lied.

Meanwhile about a dozen DOJ and FBI officials have resigned or been re-assigned. Still, no indictments.

Is the establishment going to win again or is it being set up? History points to the former, which is why skepticism is bountiful.

Republican Voters Want Justice… or Else

Americans who had major problems with the lack of accountability over previous scandals are out of patience. Watergate 2.0 has mountains of evidence. It’s got plenty of swamp creatures too. The DOJ and FBI are corrupt at the highest levels.

In order to hold the House of Representatives, Republicans must give voters a reason to vote for them. Democrats have already given their voters a reason to vote for them – the impeachment of Donald Trump.

Come November, if there are no indictments or at a minimum, a grand jury, Republicans will lose big at the ballot box. Democrats are quietly racking up special election victories. This points to mid-term momentum. If Watergate 2.0 is allowed to go the way of the other scandals, Republican voters will stay home.

This is not about partisanship. It is about a chronic lack of accountability for swamp creatures. Trump supporters have been loyal but they are not above throwing him to those swamp creatures if they are allowed to swim free in a slightly smaller swamp.

What Must be Done

There are journalists and members of Congress who are doing all they can but none of those individuals have the power to indict anyone. That responsibility falls to the DOJ.

Someone must fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein. We now know that he signed bogus FISA applications based on the Steele Dossier. He was a co-conspirator in the establishment plot to elect Hillary and then undermine Trump. Furthermore, he cannot indict himself.

The individual who would replace Rosenstein would be Brand but she’s gone. As a result, Trump has the ability to appoint an “acting” AAG who isn’t loyal to the bureaucracy or the establishment.

Once that individual is in place, Trump should fire Rosenstein if Sessions will not. At a minimum, Rosenstein’s conflict of interest relative to appointing Mueller is increasingly apparent. Mueller was hired to investigate Trump’s ties to Russia. Yet, Rosenstein is one of several people who signed the now discredited FISA applications based on the debunked Steele dossier.

Nunes Memo Implicates Rosenstein as co-Conspirator in Watergate 2.0

Whomever Trump appoints as acting AAG would then replace Rosenstein. At that point, the acting AAG should disband the Mueller investigation and either begin investigating Watergate 2.0 or appoint a new Special Counsel. Whomever he or she appoints as Special Counsel, such a person should hail from middle America, where conflicts of interest would be much more difficult to find.

In any event, Trump should get busy if he wants to avoid impeachment.
