Are “Ukraine-gate” and impeachment a “magnificent diversion” of attention from the imminent findings by Attorney General Barr and his investigators of FISA and other felonies by the most senior former officials of FBI, CIA, and the Department of Justice itself?
After a year and a half of investigation, DOJ Inspector Michael Horowitz gave his findings on FISA violations to Barr four weeks ago. Trump gave Barr authority to declassify as necessary. So what’s going on?
Ray includes a critique of hapless former DNI James Clapper. Inter alia, Clapper actally wrote in his memoir that, while he was head of imagery analysis before the attack on Iraq, “intelligence officers, including me, were so eager to help that we found what wasn’t really there [WMD].” Ray also observes that Clapper seems to be, so to speak, a summa cum laude graduate of the the “Curtis E. LeMay Air Force School of Russian Studies.”
