Who the hell knows?
Drop by drop, the truth comes out. Strzok/Page text messages. Unpredicated investigations. Illegally hidden Brady information. Nefariously setting up a patriot, for the “crime” of joining the President Donald J. Trump administration.
I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of the two-tiered justice system in this country. Why is it that Democrats like Chuck Schumer are allowed to apologize and present specious excuses for their potential crimes and then get out of jail free, while Republicans like President Donald J. Trump are held to the letter (and imaginary spirit) of laws and the Constitution?
Provided that the Democrats don’t simply cut their losses and pull the plug on this impeachment clown show, it’s likely they’ll continue their demands for “new” witnesses. They’re touting polls that supposedly show majority support among the public for witnesses, although the polls don’t indicate whose witnesses–the President’s or Democrat House Managers’ witnesses. Are we talking Hunter Biden and the so-called sham whistleblower? We’d all like to hear from them.
Recent circumstances call to mind the case of Jeffrey Alexander Sterling.
Jeffrey Alexander Sterling is an American lawyer and former CIA employee who was arrested, charged, and convicted of violating theEspionage Act for revealing details about Operation Merlin (covert operation to supply Iran with flawed nuclear warhead blueprints) to journalist James Risen.
Sterling was a “whistleblower” who was arrested, tried, and convicted during the Obama administration. He was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison and was released in January 2018.
Michael Atkinson, Inspector General of the Intelligence Community, works for us, for all of us: liberal, conservative, moderate, Democrat, Republican, Independent, Green Party, Libertarian, apolitical, indifferent. Supposedly:
In accordance with Title 50 U.S.C.A. Section 3033, the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community (ICIG) conducts independent and objective audits, investigations, inspections, and reviews to promote economy, efficiency, effectiveness, and integration across the Intelligence Community.
The ICIG does so with integrity, professionalism, and independence. We conduct our mission free of external influence and provide objective assessments, findings, and conclusions, regardless of political or personal consequence.

The Democrats are going to meet today to decide on impeaching President Trump, with a statement by House Speaker Pelosi to follow.
Impeachment. Not over the Russian collusion/obstruction fiasco but, this time, over a “whistleblower” complaint that is based upon hearsay. A complaint that nobody in Congress has even seen. A complaint that has already been determined by Department of Justice lawyers to not fall under the law concerning intelligence community whistleblowers, simply because the person who made the complaint is not complaining about anyone within the intelligence community and the person the complaint allegedly concerns is not under the purview of the intelligence community.
