Okay I need to tell you that I am no conspiracy guy. I have always found there are usually enough known facts to condemn than to fabricate or go with things that are not easy to believe or prove. President George W. Bush took us to war on the false premise that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. And to add to that he mishandled the early days of the occupation because he was under the false perception that we would be greeted as liberators. These are pretty much the accepted facts. These are horrible missteps; I do not need to go into conspiracy theories to pile on the facts are piled deep enough.
Now having said that I present you with my conspiracy theory about Russia and our government. We know two things: that FBI Director Comey broke protocol and went against the United States Attorney General when he made his first pronouncement that although he could not prosecute [check spelling of Hillary and make uniform throughout] Hilary for her private email server she was very wrong and misguided in what she did. Now there has been a lot of speculation why he did this. Usually the FBI will say if their findings found the accused guilty or not guilty without any elaboration on the points. Comey did not follow this rule of thumb. It has been said that at least in part the FBI had internal dissension coming out of their New York Office demanding she be charged. Apparently the New York office has strong feelings against Hilary Clinton. So Comey, to keep the home fires burning, parsed the difference between saying she was not guilty by law but in essence was.
Comey, eight days before the election, made another public claim that newly discovered Hilary emails were found on her assistant’s husband’s computer, the tarnished sexting ex -politician Anthony Weiner. So they were re-opening the investigation. There is little doubt that this had some effect on the election. Again it was the New York FBI office that promoted this new effort that was found after investigation to be much ado about nothing. It appears that the FBI New York office coerced or pushed Comey to once again announce this publicly before the known facts could be assembled.
Meanwhile we learn Russia, with the help of Wikileaks and Russia’s own cyber propaganda machine, were pushing for Trump to beat Hilary in the election. At this point few if any reputable people disagree with this point. We have also heard that Russia has information on Trump that would make him a potential victim of control by Putin. This had not been proven but comes from a source that demands it be looked into.
So what is your conspiracy theory, you say. I believe that the New York office was also working as a Russian propaganda machine to defeat Hilary and elect Trump. Why do I say that American FBI agent [why the different type faces] Robert Hanssen one of Russia’s greatest spyies first contacted the Russian intelligence group when he was working in the New York FBI field office. He was caught in 2001. His activities have been described by the Department of Justice's Commission for the Review of FBI Security Programs as "possibly the worst intelligence disaster in U.S. history". We know that he began his career as a spy in the New York office; we also know that on at least two occasions he recommended persons for potential spyies to Russia. So it would not be too hard to make the speculation that some of the current FBI New York office might be compromised and working as agents of Russia. If this is so it might be Comey’s acts came after the persuasion of a New York office friendly to the Soviets.
There now you have my conspiracy theory. But what is the point? The point is if this is at all believable it is because the actions of the FBI and Trump allow one to ponder that their motivations might not be pure. The strongmen of Trump, Comey, Putin, Assange worked against a woman who presumed to aspire to too much power. The white men were caught off guard by the first Black man’s election to the Presidency and were not about to be caught off guard again.
There I got it out of my system. Let us be careful where we get our information and how we use it.
