Smokes and Mirrors


So many Investigations, so many cooks in the kitchen, all with their own apparent alleged feel good agenda to show The American People that they are fighting the ultimate cause to ultimately shed some light on the Russia Collusion Investigation, but is it all Smokes and Mirrors, are you being taken the “American People”, for a ride for Fools?

Currently it surely seems to be the case when you take into consideration who’s running the show and The Players on these Investigations. There were no less than six Investigations since The Russian Investigations kicked in, among them;

The Senate Judiciary Intelligence Committee; a Bipartisan Committee looking broadly into the 2016 Russia Collusion Investigation, Trump Associates and Michael Flynn Russia connections and the firing of former FBI Director James Comey which is under “veil of suspicion” that he was fired because Trump didn’t like the FBI Investigation into Russian involvement in our elections.

The House Intelligence Committee; also looking into Russia’s efforts to influence 2016 Campaign with Trump Surrogate Republican Chairman Devin Nunes going “Rogue” issuing 5-6 subpoenas unmasking requests to US spy agencies related to Russia’s election meddling between June 2016-January 2017, according to a Washington Post report, in an effort to identify which US persons foreign agents are speaking to or about so that he in turn would communicate this information to Trump to divert attention away from the investigation into Trump’s campaign, a “Violation” of Nunes’ recusal from the investigation, and that is not even touching into Nunes latest charades.

The House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, Investigating Michael Flynn whom ran The National Security Council, his Russian ties as well as the firing of James Comey.

The ongoing Investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation of Trump his Administration and Associates into the Russia Collusion Investigation stalled by Trump when firing FBI Director James Comey now with a new Director “appointed by Trump”.

The Justice Department Investigation; Robert Mueller assigned as Special Counsel Independent Investigation in charge of the Russia inquiry which is as independent as a doorknob from a door.

Mueller was assigned by Rod Jay Rosenstein Deputy Attorney General for the United States Department of Justice replacing Jeff Sessions whom had previously “recused” himself from all matters related to the presidential campaign and any Russian Collusion Investigation yet “Sessions and Rosenstein” were both involved in Comey’s firing along with Trump whom “stands accused” of firing Comey to impede the Russia investigation and then trying to pass it off on Rosenstein.

In a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Sen. Kamala Harris’ questioned Rod Rosenstein on why his appointment of Robert Mueller was done under Justice Department rules that give Rosenstein the ability to veto many key moves Mueller may make. Are you willing or not to give Mueller the authority to be fully independent of your ability, statutorily and legally to fire him? Rosenstein kept deflecting the question with lots of verbose galygoog and finally countered with; a Safeguard is the Honesty of the Officials, your Insurance is his Integrity”, Robert Mueller Integrity, My Integrity Rosenstein said. But we all know well that “Integrity” is in short supply when it comes to Trump his Appointees and Associates, it’s practically Extinct!

The Justice Department’s recusal regulation, 28 CFR 45.2, states that no employee shall participate in a criminal investigation or prosecution if he has a personal or political relationship with (a)ny person or organization substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution. No Justice Department employee should participate in a criminal investigation if he is himself substantially involved in the conduct that’s under investigation. The subject of Mueller’s investigation is whether Trump fired Comey to obstruct justice and then tried to cover it up by enlisting Rosenstein whom is a person “substantially involved” in that Investigation.

There’s more. Rosenstein told the Associated Press that he would recuse himself if that was necessary, said he made that pledge to Mueller as well yet there was no discussion of a possible recusal at a Hearing.

Robert Mueller Budget must be approved by Rosenstein whom can slow or deny requests or some aspects of it. Mueller can be fired by Rosenstein, Mueller is to hand over Investigation results and Recommendations to Rosenstein whom may or may Not abide by those recommendations, Trump could throw a wrench anytime on Investigation Delaying it or Stopping it and Sessions who “Perjured” himself on Russia could influence Rosenstein final decision while Director Mueller will still be in the chain of command “under the Trump-appointed leadership” of the Justice Department. All these Investigations are run by the Republicans Majority in both the House and Senate, they have full Reign and Control, including on Bipartisan Investigations.

Until Rod Jay Rosenstein “Recuse himself” and a truly “Independent Outside Commission” away from the hands of Republican “Partisanship” take place judging by Republicans response or lack thereof diluted outrage on all these issues confronting Trump, his Administration and Associates possibly colluding and breaking the law the hiding, obscuring or embellishing of the truth of a situation with misleading or irrelevant information, Falsehoods and Alternate Truths, Investigations are nothing but a Con, may end-up being nothing more than charades, Smokes and Mirrors, Now you see them, Now you Don’t! Have you been Republican Conned?
