Russiagate in Review

Not much new today, mostly coverage of issues that arose yesterday or earlier.

First off, let's see what up with the Flynn mess. Margot Cleveland at Da Fed says Michael Flynn Judge Emmet Sullivan Needs To Recuse Himself Already. It's long past time; he's ruined what reputation he had. Ace has this amusing video from a lawyer, Robert Barnes: "I'll Give You a Little Secret.... Judge Sullivan Is As Dumb as a Pile of Bricks"

And sundance at CTH has a video  the omnipresent Sidney Powell Discusses DOJ/FBI Selective Releases as Richard Grenell Points Out Senator Mark Warner’s Conflicts…, which is a pretty good segue to the remainder of Russiagate.  Andrea Widburg at Am Think agrees with me that Someone finally brings clarity to the Obamagate narrative regarding the Charles Lipson article I cited yesterday. Also, via the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 05.28.20,   Morning Joe, Mueller & Sleepy Joe Under The Fedora extracts a nugget from the Whitaker video I posted yesterday. Also, Don Surber: Mueller Shows The FBI Needs Disbanding. It might be time. Matt Vespa, Wait…That’s How Peter Strzok Signed Off on the FBI’s Counterintelligence Probe into Trump-Russia Collusion
There’s a pattern here, an odious timeline. Peter Strzok and the FBI concocted a shoddy and politically motivated counterintelligence probe that deviated immensely from department policy in order to justify this unjustifiable surveillance operation against the Trump campaign. No evidence of Russian collusion was found.

By the time Comey was fired, the Special Counsel’s Office under Robert Mueller was established to what seems to be turd polishing duty. The DOJ needed to have Mueller give an aura of legitimacy to this absolute waste of an investigation that broke all the rules when it was established by anti-Trump wingnut Strzok. Oh, and leading up to the SCO taking over for the FBI, the Strzok texts to Page were discovered. It’s why Mueller booted Strzok from the investigation, leading to his reassignment to human resources before his termination at the FBI. These texts were bound to be revealed. It was inevitable, but Mueller and his team were there for damage control. He’s impartial. He’ll ensure the FBI’s rogue investigation didn’t look totally insane.
Sundance has another video worth watching, Lou Dobbs Discusses “Spygate” With Investigative Journalist Lee Smith…. Tony Shaffer at Da Caller, The 6 Facts Americans Were Never Supposed To Know About The Russia Collusion Hoax. I'm sure the list could be extended substantially.

This topic was introduced yesterday. Ace wasn't impressed, but others think this is a big deal, Chuck Ross at Da Caller, Rod Rosenstein Will Testify Before Senate In Review Of Trump-Russia Probe. Matt Vespa at Town Hall reminds us Why Rod Rosenstein Is The First Witness in New Review of the Trump-Russia Collusion Fiasco and Liz Vaughn at Red State cites Dan Bongino: The Stunning Reason Why Rod Rosenstein Will Be the First Witness Before Senate Committee
So why did Rosenstein appoint a special counsel to investigate President Trump, a man he knew was innocent?

Bongino’s Analysis:
Do you understand the tactical nuke this is? Rosenstein knows, he’s been briefed by the FBI as early as April, that this case is total garbage and that President Trump is not a suspect in this thing, and they refuse to clear him. Why?
Because the Mueller probe has one purpose…To nail Donald Trump.
On May 10, Mueller is appointed to investigate Trump for a scandal that doesn’t exist.
It was always an effort to accumulate enough political damage on Donald Trump to hopefully impeach him, to get him out of office before this thing resulted in some denouement at the end.
Now you have it nailed down. Rosenstein knew what Mueller was going to do. That’s why he appointed Andy Weissmann. Andy Weissmann having a reputation for, at best, shady legal tactics. They appointed him knowing he’d keep this case open and knowing Trump wasn’t a suspect the entire time.
He ends the segment asking, “What else do you need to hear?”

I believe this is the single most extraordinary revelation we’ve heard in the last three years.
Sundance considers that AG Barr Appoints West Texas U.S. Attorney to Support Durham Investigation – Review Unmasking Before and After 2016 Election…

Chuck Ross at Da Caller, AG Barr Appoints Federal Prosecutor To Review Obama Admin ‘Unmasking’ Of Trump Associates and Capt. Ed at Hot Air, Barr: Time For A “Review” Into Obama Admin Unmasking Requests

Breitbart, Nancy Pelosi Delays FISA Vote After Progressive, Conservative Revolt, Sundance, The Line Holds – Speaker Pelosi Drops Plan For House FISA Reauthorization Vote…. Tobias Hoonhout at NR, House Dems Forced to Scrap FISA Vote following Trump Veto Promise. Time to go back and find some real reforms.

Ace, Ric Grennel Swats Eric Fartwell Around on Twitter "More from Deb Heine, here, but a few tweets below:"
News Thud, LISTEN: Mark Levin interviews Rick Grenell about unmasking and the Obama administration "The interview runs about 19 minutes but it’s a great interview from beginning to end:"

At Hot Air, AllahPundit whines Rush: Come On, Trump Doesn’t Care Whether Scarborough Murdered His Staffer. But you have to admit, they have a lot of gall objecting after all the nasty stuff they've said about Trump that turned out not to be true.
