aside The President’s Line Of Defense Against Accusations Of His Collusion With Russia

“Let’s not forget how this really began. Just weeks ago, fired FBI Director James Comey admitted under oath that he leaked privileged documents to a friend to give to reporters at the New York Times. Memos that he had written in the course of his official government duties about privileged conversations with the president.”

“Since that testimony, there have been news reports indicating that President Obama actually knew about the attempts by Russian President Vladimir Putin to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race through a cyber campaign.”

“Let’s find out what happened in August – why did the president not reveal this information at that time? And why did he not respond forcefully to the Russian hacking and other cybercrimes?”

“President Obama had this information in August 2016 – three months before the election.”

“The Obama administration expelled some diplomats, closed a couple of Russian compounds – action so minor that it was described by those inside the Obama administration as “largely symbolic.”

“So why did President Obama sit on this information?”

“I am sure he thought former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would win and perhaps didn’t want to muddy the waters in the run-up to the election. And he probably figured she would address this issue when she got into the White House.”

“But, of course, that did not happen. Almost immediately after Donald Trump was sworn in as the nation’s 45th president, the infatuation with Trump and all things Russia began. And thanks to James Comey – a Special Counsel is appointed to look into all of this.”

“The truth is there’s no need for a Special Counsel.”

“What’s really needed is an investigation into the actions (or lack thereof) by President Obama last summer when he became aware of this Russian bombshell.”

“Let’s find out what happened in August – why did the president not reveal this information at that time? And why did he not respond forcefully to the Russian hacking and other cybercrimes?”

“Important questions that must be answered. That should be the focus of an investigation.”

“President Trump deserves an apology.”

ON BACKGROUND: (It is important to know the back ground of the kind of person who could write the fantasy above alt-reality piece.)

 As per a 6/20/17 Slate Article by Mark Joseph Stern, “Sekulow is a conservative litigator who has spent his career dismantling the constitutional separation of church and state. In 1987, he persuaded the Supreme Court to strike down an ordinance barring Jews for Jesus from proselytizing in Los Angeles International Airport. The issue was close to Sekulow’s heart: Although he was raised Jewish, he became a Messianic Jew while attending Atlanta Baptist College (now Mercer University). As he explained in an essay, Sekulow “commit [his] life to Jesus” at a performance by the Liberated Wailing Wall, the Jews for Jesus’ music group.”

“Sekulow served as the Jews for Jesus’ general counsel for several years and founded a nonprofit, Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism, or CASE, to fund his legal work. In 1991, he moved to the American Center for Law & Justice, a conservative Christian advocacy group founded by Pat Robertson to counteract the American Civil Liberties Union. In his capacity as ACLJ chief counsel, Sekulow continued to argue cases at the Supreme Court, usually defending school prayer and government subsidization of religion. Sekulow also repeatedly attacked “buffer zones” around abortion clinics that prevent protesters from accosting women. He lost that fight but won several high-profile religion cases by asserting that restrictions on religion in schools violate freedom of speech.

“Sekulow’s profile rose precipitously in the 1990s thanks in large part to Paul and Jan Crouch, owners of the Trinity Broadcast Network. (Jan Crouch, the LA Times reported in 1993, referred to Sekulow as “our little Jew.”) The Crouches gave him a talk show on the network called Call to Action: Legal Issues Facing Christians Today, a platform that cemented his reputation as a top evangelical attorney. According to the LAT, donations to Sekulow’s nonprofit, CASE, quadrupled after he mentioned it on air.”

  1. Dear Mz. Gronda,
    While I, and most of your readers understand the end of the article, I fear that most of the tRumpsters will not, and it is quite possible they would seek to utilize it in a way not desired. I sincerely wish you would have ended the article with a summation instead of the quote from the FOX opinion piece. However the article was very interesting and pretty much summed up what my research had discovered.

  2. Dear Crustyolemothman,

    These are the words of Jay Sekulow and are not mine to change. Remember that this is what the right will be arguing. I’ll think about what to do. Maybe, I’ll just add my own thoughts.

    Thanks and Hugs, Gronda

    • Dear Mz. Gronda,
      I realized that, however I fear that some people may twist and distort and “assume” the words are yours! That is why I suggested a short summation at the end. Please don’t misunderstand my intent, it is not to tell you how to write your articles, as you are far better than I could ever hope to be, and please accept my comments as a suggestion..

  3. Slightly off-topic but worth mentioning: Trump white house backdoor channels may include the Russian “Telegram” app which encrypts any communication end to end. He may be getting his orders from Putin this way, and it’s undetectable!

    But now the Russian gov’t want to Telegram’s CEO to register with with new Russian Data Protection Laws. Russia’s communications watchdog Roskomnadzor had recently threatened to block Telegram if the service did not hand over information required to put the app on an official government list of information distributors.

    What this means is the Russian gov’t would now have control of ALL encrypted messages from anyone using this service thinking their communication is secure. Let’s hope the Dems are wise enough not to use a Russian messaging service, b/c everything is being monitored by the Russians.

    Russian state sponsored hackers “Shadow Brokers” are highly regarded as the best in the world, they are the ones who hacked into the DNC mainframe and Hillary’s email server, Anthony Weiner’s laptop and leaked it all thru WikiLeaks.
    They know everything the NSA knows, even hacking the NSA’s secrets and leaked Vault 7!

    Interesting, scary times we’re living in!
