From the VG Bookshelf: “The Russia Hoax”
The Russia Hoax, by Gregg Jarrett, is a tautly written book that is a vigorous defense of the Rule of Law. Does it defend President Trump? Yes, because the facts expose a two-tiered justice system which should disturb anyone regardless of political loyalties.
In 286 pages, Jarrett precisely lays out the facts of what is an unfolding soft coup attempt. With copious notes sourcing the narrative, he lays out a clear chronology. While many of the key facts are public record, Jarrett pulls together the disparate parts into a cohesive whole. The too-close-to-be-coincidence of significant events and the close relationships of the players reads like a political thriller. The book begins where unraveling this whole sordid mess of corruption must begin — with Hillary Clinton.
On or about the day Clinton was sworn into office, January 21, 2009, the State Department activated a classified email account on its secure government server for her benefit. Clinton never used it. (page 3)
Jarret cites the laws Clinton broke during the four years she operated an unsecured server in her basement. He also points out that the server was an open secret. Even President Obama used it, albeit under a pseudonym. Any employee who voiced concern over the arrangement were shut down and instructed “to never speak of the Secretary’s personal email system again.” Rules were for little people, not Hillary.
Consider the Uranium One debacle of 2010, where Russia ended up half of America’s projected uranium production. Not only did Bill Clinton receive a cool half million dollars for a one-hour speech to a Russian financial institution, but $145 million from various people connected to Uranium One ended up in Clinton Foundation coffers. Who were FBI directors during the Russian uranium probe? Robert Mueller and James Comey. Who was supervising Russian bribery prosecutions? Then US Attorney for the District of Maryland, Rod Rosenstein.
There is no public information that these three men ever advised Congress of any of the incriminating materials they had discovered documenting Russian corruption. It appears they buried the evidence from Congress, key officials in the executive branch, and the American public.
It would seem that these three government officials saw no danger in Clinton’s allow Russia to control more of the world’s nuclear power supply, yet they later became the three top people most alarmed by allegations that the Trump campaigned conspired with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election. (page 81)
Coincidence? The book is rife with them.
We are expected to believe it was a coincidence that former President Bill Clinton just happened to be on the tarmac of Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, Arizona, at exactly the same time as Attorney Loretta Lynch on June 27. 2016, a scant five days before Hillary Clinton was to meet with FBI officials for questioning about her suspected wrongdoing. Perhaps it was also just a coincidence that eight days after the furtive tarmac meeting the decision was announced that criminal charges against Clinton would not be filed.
Chapter after chapter, Jarrett highlights the relatively small group of inside players and how they use their positions to manipulate the system. Hillary is exonerated of crimes where lesser people serve prison time. Donald Trump and anyone around him are investigated for non-crimes.
The book really takes off when exploring the whole issue of “collusion.” Jarrett lays out the case that the FBI never had a basis to open an investigation. He covers what are the legal requirements of any opening of an investigation. He quotes the scandalous, Trump-hating texts between lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. He even reveals how John Brennan primed Harry Reid to wildly accuse Trump of “being a Russian agent” and his campaign engaging in cyber theft of Democrat emails.
Each turn of the page is another step lower into the basement dwellings of career bureaucrats who were convinced Hillary Clinton was going to be President. During her campaign they used their positions to spy on the Trump campaign. They used a Clinton Campaign “dossier” to fraudulently obtain FISA warrants. When she lost, they barely missed a beat into turning the apparatus of the Federal government against the duly elected President by subverting due process and rule of law. When there is no evidence of a crime, one punishes The Enemy with process.
As Gregg Jarrett says in the preface:
The greatest peril to democracy today is not a foreign force, but the abuse of power from within … As Justice Brandeis put it, “if the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for the law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.”
My one regret about this book is that the people who really should read it, won’t. The real collusion has been between the Deep State and legacy media. They truly believe that only they are capable of telling the rest of us how we should live our lives. Their contempt for Trump is a manifestation of their contempt for the regular folk who dissent.
I’m going to wait until history finishes up this mess before I buy the book to find out if he was right.
