Is Today’s Treason Trivial?

Written by Jim Bowman

Apparently, these interrogations of Sessions outweighs the mounting evidence of possible treason by our high ranking!  Since broadcasts of such, albeit limited to Fox News, have provided more than enough to warrant at least the media’s interest, if not an official inquiry, our dogged media sleuths  remain addicted to anything that is anti-Trump.  As such, treason has been relegated to a minor and/or trivial status.

Instead, today’s news gloats upon a Senatorial free-for all against our Attorney General regarding the Comey firing, along with the possibility of past Presidential Russia linked conversations.   And in the “can you believe it” bracket,  the nothingness from this Special Persecutor’s political vendetta supposedly overshadows the news of a national security breach.  Is there any wonder as to Trump’s charge of “fake news” gaining its credibility?

Instead of reporting the breaking details of the 2010 uranium sale to a Russian firm, a Wall Street Journal (WSJ) article was replete with worn out statements, personal complaints and insults.  No mention of what qualifies as the story of the decade.

In a Fox News piece, Gregg Jarrett refers to The Hill and Circa News reports by John Soloman/Alison Spann (Hill) and Sara Carter (Circa) which “reveals that the FBI gathered a multitude of documents, secret recordings, intercepted emails, financial records and eyewitnesses accounts showing that Russian nuclear officials directed millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation…”  Also, “that Hillary Clinton presided over a governing body which unanimously approved the sale of one-fifth of America’s uranium supply to Russia.”

Jarrett’s report continues with the unbelievable, “The FBI and the Department of Justice reportedly had the evidence in their possession before the uranium sale, but kept the matter secret and never notified Congress…”

Also pertinent as Jarrett reports, “Robert Mueller was the FBI Director during the time of the Russian uranium probe, and so was his successor James Comey who took over in 2013 as the FBI was still developing the case.  Rod Rosenstien, then U.S. Attorney, was supervising the case.  There is no indication that any of these men ever told Congress of all the incriminating evidence they had discovered and the connection to Clinton.  The entire matter was kept secret from the American public.”

And let’s not forget that paragon of Justice, Eric Holder who as Jarrett explains, “was the Attorney General when the FBI began uncovering the Russian corruption scheme in 2009.  Since the FBI reports to him, he surely knew what the bureau had uncovered.”

Instead of this block buster, the Wall Street Journal feeds America with the same old, “Mrs. Clinton has cited Mr. Comey’s public statements about the case as one of the reasons she lost the presidential election.”  Of course, in her mind, everyone caused her defeat!

The WSJ’s piece concluded with the career Senator from Vermont, Pat Leahy, falsely accusing Sessions that, “My concern is you were part of the Russian façade and went along with it, and I’ve known you for years, I’m sorry you would do that.”  Talk about “in the windmills of your mind!”

Leahy should be the last to accuse, based upon his long ago critique of Kenneth Starr’s investigation of Clinton.  Back then, he falsely accused Starr on NBC’s Meet the Press.  He charged that, “The fact of the matter is that Kenneth Starr has been totally out of control.”  “He has a fixation of trying to topple the President of the United States.”  Today, this seems eerily premature when viewing current prosecutorial antics.

The only saving grace to this media dribble is the comparison provided by the total irrelevance of Mueller’s ongoing vendetta verses his actual uranium culpability!  When this affair attracts an active inquiry, then the high crime of treason will regain its proper relevance.
