FBI Targeting of Trump Comes Under Growing Attack

Jan. 14, 2019 (EIRNS)—There is a building furor from all sides of the political spectrum about the FBI targeting of Donald Trump as a Manchurian candidate traitor following the firing of James Comey. Some people absolutely get the fact that it is the British who are behind this. It’s our job to escalate this. As of this writing, Part I of Barbara Boyd’s three-part series on “The British and the Coup” has 3,700 social media shares.

John Dowd, the storied Washington, D.C. criminal attorney who represented the President in the initial rounds of the Mueller probe, put the matter succinctly in an interview with Fox: “Little did I know that it appears that they were all in it together,” Dowd said.

“I mean Rosenstein, Comey, Mueller, McCabe, the whole crowd, and they were out to get this President no matter what. I don’t think they sincerely believed anything about Russia.... This is our worst nightmare that someone with that kind of power would then decide to go after the President. I mean, it’s a coup,”

Dowd said. “That’s what it is, an attempted coup by Comey and his crowd. And the evidence is all over there. I take the New York Times article as an admission of their bad behavior.” Dowd otherwise commented that the United States must appear now to the world as a banana republic rather than a nation of laws.

Dan Bongino, the very popular Fox commentator, picked out articles from May 2018 for his Twitter and web audience, highlighting the British role in the aforesaid coup, and honing in on Richard Dearlove specifically. May 2018 was when the initial revelations appeared concerning Stefan Halper and Richard Dearlove which we have further unveiled now in LaRouche PAC’s three-part exposé.

Victoria Toensing and Joseph diGenova, in a piece also published on Fox, state:

“A stench has been emanating from the J. Edgar Hoover Building (FBI headquarters) for over two years. It landed Saturday on the front page of the New York Times in an article citing former law enforcement officials claiming they had to deal with explosive implications that President Donald Trump was knowingly or unwittingly working for Russia. Thus, the story goes, there was a basis to begin the Russia collusion investigation....

“In fact, The Gray Lady was covering the derrieres of the Obama Administration officials involved in the cabal to frame Trump, who now fear an imminent Special Counsel finding that during the 2016 campaign there was no collusion between Trump and the Russians. The article is intended to convey the following message: Even though there was no evidence to support the allegations, those making the decision to investigate Trump did so in good faith.”

DiGenova, the former U.S. Attorney for Washington, D.C., and Toensing, a former head of the Justice Department Criminal Division Fraud Unit, go on to completely lambast the bad and very dirty cops at the top of the FBI, noting,

“The New York Times story was created to obfuscate the real criminal conspiracy: violation of Title 18 of U.S. Code Section 242, which prohibits any person under color of law (i.e., Obama Administration personnel) to deprive another of ‘rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution.’ Such legal protection includes being free from a criminal investigation based on false charges....”

Finally, Glenn Greenwald in an article for The Intercept today takes the lapdog media to task for insisting that the targeting of the President for a security investigation is “unprecedented,” thereby erasing from American history the numerous previous chapters concerning an out-of-control FBI. In particular, Greenwald cites the J. Edgar Hoover investigation of Henry Wallace for his peacemaking efforts and direct defiance of the British Empire. Greenwald cites the following passage from a Wallace speech which, apparently, inflamed Hoover:

“Make no mistake about it—the British imperialistic policy in the Near East alone, combined with Russian retaliation, would lead the United States straight to war unless we have a clearly defined and realistic policy of our own.

“Neither of these two great powers wants war now, but the danger is that whatever their intentions may be, their current policies may eventually lead to war. To prevent war and insure our survival in a stable world, it is essential that we look abroad through our own American eyes and not through the eyes of either the British Foreign Office or a pro-British or anti-Russian press....

“We must not let our Russian policy be guided or influenced by those inside or outside the United States who want war with Russia.”
