In case you missed it, a few weeks ago President Donald Trump shocked the world when he took to Twitter to scold former President Barack Obama for wiretapping him and his associates during the presidential campaign and subsequent transition. Everyone laughed, pointed fingers, made memes, and said Trump was off his rocker. Only, now the Susan Rice revelations are showing that whether or not Trump was exactly right, he was at least not talking complete nonsense, and it will probably turn into quite a political and possibly even criminal issue as the Obama administration seeks to make Susan Rice the fall gal for the second time (remember Benghazi anyone?). We are not here to discuss the allegations and what it means. We just want to give our readers a quick scorecard so they are up to speed on where we are at with things.
Ok, let’s start back last year when Russia supposedly leaked to Wikileaks the emails that revealed that Bernie Sanders never was really in this thing, and the DNC let millions of Americans donate their hard-earned money to his campaign knowing full well that it was fixed and Hillary Clinton would be the candidate no matter what happened. Now, follow along here, Russia supposedly did this to “influence” the election by revealing to the American people that at least half of the primary process was fixed. Now, the whole Russia investigation revolves around the idea that Trump or someone close to Trump was talking and colluding with Russia to make this happen. Just in case that didn’t sink in, they are saying that Trump was colluding with Russia to leak the truth about the Democratic primary to the American people. In other words, Russia sought to influence the election in Trump’s favor by revealing to the American people just how corrupt the Democratic Party really was. And Trump was helping reveal the truth, which is what they are now investigating. I know it’s confusing.
Now, we find out that President Obama’s administration was also working hard to uncover the Trump collusion with Russia so it could leak it to the media or WikiLeaks and therefore influence the election in the other direction. Trump accused Obama of doing so, so he is now accusing Obama of doing what Obama is accusing him of doing. The scary thing is it looks like they are all right.
Yes, everyone is right. Everyone was trying to influence the election in an illegal fashion, and they were all doing it by revealing facts about each of the candidates that are basically indisputable. So, they sought to cleverly lie by telling the truth. Are you still with me?
Perhaps it would have been a lot easier if either political party could have simply found a decent human being to run for President. But that was too much to ask.
