MO' MAGA BLUES - You Think It's Bad Now? Wait for Next Year's Show Trials

https://www.thedailybeast.com/you-think-its-bad-now-wait-for-next-years-show-trials




I’ve been trying to tell people, with varying degrees of success, that next year’s campaign is going to be—by far—the most ruthless and dishonest campaign that any living American has seen. Some people take me seriously. But most say something along the lines that it can hardly get any worse.

Oh yes it can. It can get a lot worse. And if you want to see how, watch this clip of Corey Lewandowski on Fox News Thursday night, via Josh Marshall’s Twitter feed:

Here’s the transcript, although you really have to study his face and eyes and hear his voice to get the full Weimar effect: “They should be fearful, and I’ll tell you why. The person who has gotten a pass on this so far is Joe Biden. Because I believe that the investigation which was launched came from somewhere inside the White House to greenlight Clapper, Comey, and Brennan to start this investigation into Donald Trump for no valid reason. We now know the State Department, we’ve seen the contemporaneous emails that were put into place after Victoria Nuland did a meeting with Christopher Steele, then notified the FBI this person had no credibility. But it continued. Because it came from the highest levels of the government.

GREGG JARRETT (GUEST HOST): The distraction, as you call it, I think is driven by fear. They fear what is about to happen, the inspector general report is going to come out. And I suspect it's going to be devastating about corruption in the Obama administration, under his leadership at the FBI and the Department of Justice. How they used their positions in law enforcement to target Americans for political reasons, which is a clear abuse of power and a myriad of other crimes: lying to a FISA court, which would not only be perjury, but obstruction of justice as well. And I think they fear what Bill Barr is doing, investigating the investigators. What do you think?

COREY LEWANDOWSKI (FORMER TRUMP CAMPAIGN MANAGER): They should be fearful. And I will tell you why, the person who has gotten a pass on this so far is Joe Biden. Because I believe that the investigation, which was launched, came from somewhere inside the White House to green light [James] Clapper, [James] Comey, and [John] Brennan to start this investigation into Donald Trump for no valid reason. We now know the State Department -- we've seen the contemporaneous emails that were put in place after Victoria Nuland did a meeting with Christopher Steele. They notified the FBI this person had no credibility, but it continued because it came from the highest levels of the government and Joe Biden has not answered what he knew and when he knew it of how this investigation began.

And when Attorney General Barr and Mr. [Michael] Horowitz release that report in approximately a month, I think we are going to see additional criminal referrals with [Andrew] McCabe getting another referral, Comey a referral, [Peter] Strzok and [Lisa] Page, James Baker, possibly Bruce Ohr and other people who we haven't even meant as household names yet will have criminal referrals. And I think what we're going to see, Gregg, is in March or April of next year, James Comey, Andy McCabe, Strzok and Paige will be on trial for the crimes they committed against the Fourth Amendment and against this president. But we can't wait.

1. Some figures like Comey should consider suing for libel

2. The righties have been threatening this since early 2017

They are really riled up now because Barr is with them. I don't believe it will end with criminal convictions. The righties have kook conspiracy theories. A bet against a kook conspiracy theory is a good bet.

4. Jesus Christ, where are all the intelligent & creative patriots to stop this dangerous bullshit?

I'm here sick to death while Putin's over in Moscow creaming his jeans because these traitorous assholes are using our Constitution against us.

5. when (I refuse to say IF) we claw back to power, we need to start to deconstruct the imperial

presidency, and de-fang the ultra-concentrated power positions like AG.

I am fairly certain I will never get my wish, as the power superstructure will self-preserve.

If we do not at least do a little there, plus add PR, DC, and maybe split California into 2, so 3 new states (thus yielding 6 new Dem Senators and pushing back on the demographic constitutional nightmare of 30% (whiter, far more rural, older, more RW, more fundie xian, less educated than the other 70%) of the population controlling 70% of the Senate seats by the mid-2030's or so), plus vastly expand the House to over 1001 (at bare minimum, and then much more fairly distribute the seats to the huge states, thus sorting the EC far more than it is at present), and add 6 new SCOTUS justices, the medium to long term event horizon is looking so fucked.
