Republicans Sitting On Evidence That Clears Trump, by Paul Craig Roberts

Paul Craig Roberts makes a good point: the Republicans are better of releasing the “bombshell” House Intelligence Committee memo and its supporting evidence sooner rather than later. Why give the opposition time to discredit it? From Roberts at paulcraigroberts.org:

The Stupid Party Remains Stupid

In the 1970s neoconservative Irving Kristol aptly described the Republicans as “the stupid party.” We are seeing this today in the hesitation of the House Intelligence Committee to release to the American public the results of its investigation of Russiagate.

The committee has released a description of its findings to members of the House, and most Republicans who have read it are demanding that it be released to the public as it clearly proves that Russiagate was an orchestrated conspiracy between the Democratic National Committee, the FBI, and the Obama Department of Justice against Donald Trump.

Apparently, Republicans are not smart enough to understand that to announce that you have proof that turns Russiagate away from President Trump and toward its DNC, FBI, and DOJ originators and then to sit on the information gives the Democrats and the presstitutes time to discredit the information in advance of its release.

And that is exactly what we are witnessing. For example, presstitute Greg Sargent writing in the Washington Post, a long-time CIA asset, mischaracterizes the finding of the House Intelligence Committee as “the latest effort to delegitimize the Russia probe by painting it as born of partisan dirty tricks and an illegitimate abuse of power.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/wp/2018/01/23/republicans-launch-extraordinary-new-tactics-to-protect-trump-on-russia/?hpid=hp_no-name_opinion-card-f%3Ahomepage%2Fstory&utm_term=.73506281e6ba

The presstitute Sargent goes on to allege that “the campaign to discredit the Russia investigation continues unabated, and the Nunes memo [the House Intelligence Committee report] is at the center of it.” Sargent dismisses the report, which he has not seen, as merely “a selective release of cherry-picked info that will give Republicans ammunition to shield Trump from accountability, secure in the knowledge that the full set of facts allowing us to gauge the memo’s accuracy will not be released.”

Note presstitute Sargent and the Washington Post’s assumption that Trump is guilty of some Russiagate accusation despite the absence of any evidence.
