Letter: Just one layer of the onion

The response from the Democrats and news media (minus Fox) have been completely predictable by lying that the release of a memo exposing Obama’s remaining deep state government would create national security Armageddon.

The Dems’ big talking point about the memo is, “Is this all you have, is that it?” That would be like Hirohito staring at a 2,000-acre parking lot in August of 1945 where Hiroshima had stood hours before and replying to Truman, “Is this all you’ve got?” I can assure you, this is just the first leaf off of this rotten onion, with Obama and Clinton hiding within the inner bulb.

No one has yet asked or answered the essential question to clear up and expose the crooks involved in this unpatriotic fiasco. Why would Hillary and the Democratic National Committee spend precious, critical campaign resources to generate a mountain of lies from a British/Russian spy — Christopher Steele, who has freely admitted that he hates Trump’s guts — to generate a false dossier creating a warrant to spy on a “nobody” like Carter Page who happened to have some insignificant association with the Trump campaign? And, how did the FBI/Department of Justice wind up in possession of this dossier?

Consider this: Disgraced former FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe’s wife and Hillary are good friends. Not enough? Twice demoted, disgraced DOJ official Bruce Ohr’s wife works for Fusion GPS, where the phony Steele dossier sprouted from.

Bottom line: Muddied waters will generate mountains of reasonable doubt within Mueller’s investigation, impossible to overcome as fruit of the poisonous tree. Don’t believe that? I sell miniature Sasquatch cubs that greatly resemble hamsters.
