Trump Administration attempts to discredit the FBI and the Steele
There is a danger that the United
States under Donald Trump will be transformed into a Mafia state very
similar to that of the Russian Federation under Vladimir Putin.
late January 2018, political operatives for Donald Trump have initiated
a counter attack against Robert Mueller's investigation by trying to
discredit the FBI and the Steele Dossier. At the forefront of the
attack appear to be letters to DNC personnel from GOP Senators Grassley
and Graham demanding information on the Steele Dossier and the
so-called Nunes "Memo" attributed to GOP Congressman Devin Nunes. Links
to these documents, as well as my short summary, are provided below.
Strangely, they concentrate only on the period April to November 2016,
when Fusion GPS (and by extension Christopher Steele) was being paid by
the Democratic Party, but ignore the much longer period dating back
to 2015 when Fusion GPS was being paid by the Republican
Party (or their sympathizers). Even more strange is that they
Steele of being "biased" against Donald
Trump, when he uncovered evidence that Mr. Trump and his supporters
were collaborating with Russian intelligence services. Of course he
would be concerned or "biased"! Any normal person interested in the
security of Britain and the United States would be.
demands blind "loyalty" from his subordinates and expects blind
"loyalty" from the FBI and other American institutions. This is
dictatorship. Should he succeed in compromising the independence of law
enforcement and the judiciary, there is a danger that the United States
under Donald Trump will be
transformed into a Mafia state very similar to that of the Russian
Federation under Vladimir Putin. The similarities are striking!
