"Investigative journalist Lee Smith's The Plot Against the President tells the story of how Congressman Devin Nunes uncovered the operation to bring down the commander-in-chief. While popular opinion holds that Russia subverted democratic processes during the 2016 elections, the real damage was done not by Moscow or any other foreign actor. Rather, this was a slow-moving coup engineered by a coterie of the American elite, the "deep state," targeting not only the president, but also the rest of the country. The plot officially began July 31, 2016 with the counterintelligence investigation that the FBI opened to probe Russian infiltration of Donald Trump's presidential campaign. But the bureau never followed any Russians. In fact, it was an operation to sabotage Trump, the candidate, then president-elect, and finally the presidency. The conspirators included political operatives, law enforcement and intelligence officials, and the press." --… (more)

The Plot Against the President

Excellent summary of the Trump-Russia fiasco. Smith summarizes:

"Without the big titles and the national security bureaucracy’s legalistic self-defense mechanisms, the story was pretty straightforward: The Clintons hired a bunch of con men who got their dirty cop friends to frame Trump. The press and a corrupt prosecutor handled the cover-up.

The details mattered because the lawmen had used programs designed to keep Americans safe from terrorism as the centerpiece of the sting."

I still find it dispiriting people are so intent on getting Trump out of office they are willing to engage in, and encourage others, to engage in illegal and immoral acts. Then they congratulate each other on their actions.

Trump hasn’t been bad for America. What is bad is the corruption he has exposed in the press, the intelligence community and politicians.
