The origins of the scam
In his book, Bongino claims that the scam began with Barack Obama, who he says was ” groomed from a young age to be a community organizer and work for a radical left-wing agenda.” He claims that Obama “bought into” the scam when he became president, and that he used his position to further the goals of the scam.
According to Bongino, the scam has three prongs:
1) The political prong, which he says is designed to get Democrats elected and keep them in power.
2) The media prong, which he claims is designed to control the narrative and shape public opinion.
3) The legal prong, which he alleges is meant to weaponize the law enforcement and intelligence communities against opponents of the Democratic Party.
The players involved in the scam
There are many players involved in the scam, but the two main players are Barack Obama and Robert Mueller.
Obama was the President of the United States from 2009 to 2017. During his time in office, he oversaw the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 election in May 2017. He served in this role until March 2019.
The scam began when Obama was still in office. In June 2016, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) was hacked by Russian operatives. Emails from DNC staffers were leaked to the public, which resulted in embarrassment for the DNC and Hillary Clinton, who was the Democratic nominee for president at the time.
In response to the hacking, Obama appointed Mueller to investigate Russia’s interference in the election. However, Obama did not inform Congress or the American people about Mueller’s investigation. This is because Obama wanted to keep Mueller’s investigation secret so that it would not affect Clinton’s chances of winning the election.
Clinton ultimately lost the election to Donald Trump, and Mueller’s investigation continued into Trump’s presidency. In March 2019, Mueller submitted his report on Russia’s interference in the 2016 election to Attorney General William Barr. Barr then released a summary of Mueller’s report to Congress and the American people.
For years, we have been hearing about the Mueller investigation and the possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. We have seen people go to jail and be indicted, but there has still been no evidence of collusion. Now, we know that the Mueller investigation was a scam.
The cover-up begins
It was early morning, September 11th. The most shocking terrorist attack in American history had just occurred, and the nation was reeling. In the midst of all this chaos, one man was tasked with leading the investigation into what happened: Robert Mueller, then the FBI Director.
Mueller was a talented and experienced prosecutor, but he had one big problem: Barack Obama, the President of the United States.
Obama had been caught off guard by the attacks, and he was desperate to prevent them from happening again. He saw Mueller as a potential obstacle to his plans.
So Obama put pressure on Mueller to downplay the Islamic terrorist connection to the attacks. This would make it easier for Obama to sell his preferred narrative: that the Attacks were a result of “lone wolf” extremism, not Islamic terrorism.
Mueller caved to pressure from Obama, and he began to cover up the Islamic terrorist connection to the Attacks. This cover-up continued for years, and it eventually led to Mueller’s investigation of Donald Trump.
The cover-up deepens
As the details of the Mueller report fall into place, it’s becoming clear that this was never aboutCollusion. It was about a cover-up.
For more than two years, the American people have been told that Robert Mueller’s investigation was about Russia’s attempts to interfere in the 2016 election, and whether the Trump campaign colluded with those efforts.
But now that the report is out, it’s clear that this was never the case. There is no evidence of collusion in the report, and Mueller himself says that he did not find sufficient evidence to charge anyone in the Trump campaign with a crime.
So what was this really about?
It was about a cover-up.
The cover-up began even before Mueller was appointed as special counsel. In May of 2017, when it became clear that Mueller would be investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Trump demanded that then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions protect him from the investigation.
Sessions refused, and Trump eventually forced him to resign. But Trump’s attempts to obstruct justice didn’t stop there. In June of 2017, he tried to fire Mueller, but was stopped when White House Counsel Don McGahn threatened to resign.
And throughout 2018, as Mueller’s investigation continued, Trump repeatedly attacked Mueller and attempted to discredit his work. All of this was an attempt to obstruct justice and protect himself from an investigation he knew he couldn’t win.
Now that the report is out, it’s clear that obstruction of justice is the only crime Trump has committed. And yet, despite all of this evidence, Attorney General William Barr has refused to indict Trump for obstruction of justice.
The cover-up is complete. And it goes all the way to the top.
After nearly two years of anticipation, the Mueller Report is finally public. And while we don’t yet know the full contents of the report, we do know that it paints a damning picture of the Trump campaign’s dealings with Russia.
The fallout from the scam
Now that the truth is finally coming out about the Obama-Biden administration’s spying on the Trump campaign, we’re starting to see the fallout from their actions.
As more and more information is revealed, it’s becoming clear that this was one of the biggest political scandals in American history. Here’s a look at some of the key players involved and how they’re faring now that the truth is out.
- Barack Obama: The former president has so far managed to avoid any direct responsibility for the scandal, but his involvement is becoming harder and harder to deny. As more information comes out, it’s becoming clear that Obama knew about and approved of the spying on the Trump campaign. He may not have been directly involved in carrying it out, but he was ultimately responsible for it.
- Joe Biden: The Vice President was also intimately involved in the spying on the Trump campaign. He was caught on tape bragging about getting a Ukrainian prosecutor fired who was investigating his son, Hunter Biden. Biden is now facing mounting calls for him to be investigated and possibly even impeached.
- James Comey: The former FBI Director played a key role in carrying out the spying on the Trump campaign. He oversaw the investigation into Russia collusion, which we now know was based on fraudulent information supplied by Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Comey has since been fired from his job and is currently under investigation himself.
- Andrew McCabe: The former Deputy Director of the FBI was also deeply involved in the spying on the Trump campaign. He was responsible for approving an illegal warrant to spy on a member of the Trump team and he also lied to Congress about it. McCabe has since been fired from his job and faces criminal charges.
The ongoing investigation
Since the release of the Mueller report, there has been a lot of discussion about what should happen next. The thing is, the investigation is not over. In fact, it is just beginning.
Here is what we know so far: in 2016, the Russian government interfered in the US election with the goal of helping Donald Trump win. They did this by hacking into the email accounts of Democratic officials and releasing damaging information to the public. They also created fake social media accounts and used them to spread disinformation and sow divisions among Americans.
In 2018, Mueller was appointed as special counsel to investigate these allegations. His team spent 22 months conducting a thorough and wide-ranging investigation, interviewing over 500 witnesses and collecting over 1.4 million pages of documents.
The result was a 400-page report that detailed Russian interference in the election and outlined instances of potential obstruction of justice by Trump and his associates. However, Mueller was unable to establish conclusively that there was collusion between Trump and Russia.
Attorney General William Barr then released a summary of the report which said that there was no evidence of collusion or obstruction of justice. This sparked outrage from Democrats, who accused Barr of spinning Mueller’s findings in Trump’s favor. They demanded to see the full report so that they could make their own judgement about its contents.
After considerable pressure, Barr released a redacted version of the report to Congress and the public on April 18th. Since then, Democrats have been pouring over the report, looking for evidence that Trump obstructed justice or colluded with Russia. They have also been calling for more witnesses to be called and for Mueller himself to testify before Congress.
The investigation is ongoing, and it is clear that there is much still to be revealed about Russian interference in the 2016 election and Trump’s potential involvement in it.
