Here is one of the open questions that many of us have had about the whole Russia hoax all this time: Whose side was then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions on? Was Sessions just naïve when he recused himself from the Russia investigation, ostensibly putting Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in charge of the DOJ for more than two years? Or did Sessions recuse himself because he was part of the Deep State’s team that was engaged in the Russian collusion insurrection against President Trump? Now we can finally confirm the answer: Jeff Sessions definitely betrayed President Trump.
President Trump finally declassified a “foot-high stack” of secret Russiagate documents on his way out of the White House. One of those documents is an incredibly damning classified memo that was written by Andrew McCabe on May 16, 2017. Almost nothing is redacted in the memo, so its release shines a light on the slimy events that happened at the DOJ around the time of cornfield afficionado and then-FBI Director James Comey’s firing.
Among the NEW things we learned from this McCabe memo:
James Crowell was at the Rod Rosenstein/Andrew McCabe meeting where they discussed removing Trump through the 25th Amendment. This was the meeting where Rosenstein offered to personally wiretap the president, in hopes of making him sound crazy or paranoid so they could take him out. Who is James Crowell?
He’s the Director of the Executive Office for United States Attorneys – the guy who oversees all the US Attorneys in the country. This memo is the first time I’ve even heard of this guy, and it turns out he was a key player in the Russia hoax against the president. McCabe notes in the declassified memo that Crowell had two candidates lined up to serve as a Special Counsel to investigate the Russian collusion fairytale the week before James Comey was fired.
Especially since we’ve been told for four years that the act of Trump firing Comey was the pretext for the Special Counsel. It turns out this was another lie. They had already made up their minds to appoint a Special Counsel and indeed had one who was ready to start immediately. But that was temporarily placed on hold when Trump fired Comey, so they rewrote their script on the fly. Comey’s firing must have sounded more credible than whatever their original excuse was going to be.
The meeting described in this memo was also the infamous meeting when Rosenstein and McCabe discussed removing Trump from office by getting him declared to be “crazy” by his own Cabinet. It’s very clear from McCabe’s memo that Rosenstein was not “joking” about the 25th Amendment. He was dead serious. Which means that Rosenstein very likely perjured himself when he testified under oath to Congress that this was a conversation that was held in jest. Just a couple of guys joking around the water cooler.
Not according to Andrew McCabe. Here’s the direct quote from McCabe’s memo:
“We discussed the President’ capacity and the possibility that he could be removed from office under the 25th Amendment. The DAG [Rosenstein] indicated that he looked into the issue and determined that he would need a majority, or eight of 15 cabinet officials and that he might already have two supporters in the AG [Jeff Sessions] and Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly.”
Not only was Rod Rosenstein not joking about this evil plot to overturn the 2016 election… but he had discussed the plan with Jeff Sessions and believed that Jeff Sessions was on board.
That settles it. Jeff Sessions has turned out to be just another swamp creature who was stabbing President Trump in the back the whole time. No wonder Trump campaigned so viciously against Sessions in the 2020 primaries when he tried to run for his old Senate seat again.
The declassified McCabe memo is only two pages long, but it is an incredibly revealing two pages. You can read it for yourself HERE.
During his entire four-year term in office, President Trump never had an Attorney General that was not actively working against him. He really was going it alone.
Lesson learned. When Trump takes office for his second term (or if another America First champion picks up the mantle in 2024 and carries it forward), the first act on the very first day is clear: Fire everyone in the DOJ and the FBI, burn it all down, salt the earth and start over from scratch. The FBI and the DOJ are irredeemable. There are no good men and women working there, only swamp creatures who believe they are above the law.
