In Washington, when it comes to drama and intrigue, truth is often stranger than fiction.
Who needs to watch House of Cards, Scandal or Madam Secretary?
It’s all here in real life.
Try following this plot line:
The FBI Director threatens to expose dirt on the president and the president fires him. The dismissed director then uses a surrogate to leak classified information to the NY Times and as a result, a friend of the fired FBI director is appointed to serve as special counsel to investigate possible Russian collusion in the election. The special counsel then proceeds to hire investigators who supported the political campaign of the president’s defeated election opponent.
Stranger yet is that a Russian lawyer connected to the company that circulated a fake dossier on the president was granted special visa permission to enter the United States. She then met with the president’s son indicating she may have dirt on the Democratic candidate for president. She didn’t have any. Was it a set-up?
Despite denials from the office of the former attorney general, people in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New York City (overseen by the attorney general) suggest their office granted the visa permission to the Russian lawyer with approval from Washington.
Did Attorney General Loretta Lynch act on behalf of the Clinton campaign? More intrigue!
We know she instructed James Comey to refer to the Clinton email investigation as a “matter” rather than an investigation. This happened in the heat of the presidential campaign.
We also know she met with former President Bill Clinton just days before the FBI was set to question his wife Hillary about those deleted emails and pummeled hard drives.
Now that may be collusion worth investigating!
Comey’s writing a book, Christopher Wray is likely to be confirmed as the new FBI director, and what about the Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya? How did she get in to the U.S. to meet Donald Jr.?
