‘Russiagate’ is Failing And Its Supporters are Getting Worried

  • ‘Russiagate’ is Failing And Its Supporters are Getting Worried

    In the absence of new information supporters of ‘Russiagate’ are thrashing around with non-stories such as the one involving Devin Nunes.

    Three weeks ago I wrote a piece for The Duran in which I suggested that the corner appeared to have been turned in the fake ‘Russiagate’ scandal.

    What was a tentative conclusion then can now be firmed up.
    Though the leaders of the US security services have denied the President’s allegation that they wire-tapped him – though they were careful not to deny that they mounted surveillance on him and his associates – the President’s claim that they did, in effect smoked them out.

    Thus former DNI James Clapper admitted that he had seen no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians up to the point of his retirement on 20th January 2017, and former Acting CIA Director Michael Morell more recently has publicly trashed the whole story of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

    Possibly the single most important admission that no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians has been found came however from within the FBI itself, though it has gone almost completely unnoticed.

    This came in the form of information deriving from an anonymous leak which appeared in an article in The New York Times on 5th March 2017.  This leak almost certainly originated with FBI Director James Comey himself.  The relevant sentence in the article reads as follows:

    In addition to being concerned about potential attacks on the bureau’s credibility, senior F.B.I. officials are said to be worried that the notion of a court-approved wiretap will raise the public’s expectations that the federal authorities have significant evidence implicating the Trump campaign in colluding with Russia’s efforts to disrupt the presidential election.
