Without getting into the everyday political, about which I know nothing, I have a lingering suspicion about the Mueller/Rosenstein/McCabe/etc. scenario as it unwinds.
As Q said a long time ago (and I don’t agree with everything Q says; his estimation of President Obama, for example) “they never thought she’d lose.”
They never thought that the cabal would lose its grip on the apex of power – the Presidency. Clinton or Bush – it doesn’t matter. The cabal was in the driver’s seat in either case.
I believe they failed to cover their tracks in their planned program to dominate the world.
They held people silent through fear, but sooner or later someone would spill the beans.
But then they’d “deal with” that threat, mafia-style. And anyone else who took up the cause. Or attempted to disrupt their financial empire. Or did anything they just didn’t like, as John F. Kennedy and Dwight Eisenhower warned us about decades ago. (1)
The Alliance are taking the cabal down based on evidence they’ve gathered and judgements secured in uncorrupted legal proceedings. They’re doing it according to the law.
The evidence the NSA can gather would be enough, I suspect, to ground most legal cases. But there’s a plethora of other evidence – Wikileaks, the Panama Papers, Snowden releases, the Wiener laptop, insider whistleblowing, etc., etc.
The Alliance faces a burden that the cabal does not. They must show the public that everything they do and have done has been legal. Things go faster when you simply whack your opponent.
A similar thing happened in my local provincial legislature recently. The sergeant-at-arms and clerk of the Legislative Assembly were defrauding the government of large sums of money.
When the new house speaker – their boss – determined to end their game, it was easy to secure the evidence. The sergeant-at-arms and clerk thought that no one would ever catch them (like the cabal). Or be bold enough to question them. So the evidence was there in transaction after transaction. They’d grown overconfident and failed to cover their tracks.
As a former historian, I’ve always been struck by the way that history favors the truth. If something is found to be a lie or a fraud, it eventually is written out of the historical record.
Thereafter it only has importance for its impact on things, whereas things that were honest and true have enduring importance unto themselves.
For me that means that the way the Alliance are approaching matters has a chance of enduring in the historical record whereas the cabal’s way of life will only be of interest as something to avoid.
