(Republican Leader) – Former President Donald Trump is a man of strong convictions. But not only that, he also possesses the intestinal fortitude to actually stand up and express those convictions without fear of the repercussions. And I think it’s safe to say that his doing this very thing, along with fulfilling his campaign promises to the American people when he was in the White House, have come with a very steep price. Trump, who is currently facing numerous criminal charges from his political opponents, has released an opinion piece through Newsweek where he completely skewers those involved in cooking up the Russian collusion hoax against him. It’s beautifully brutal.
Trump kicks things off by saying the report released by Special Counsel John Durham makes it absolutely crystal clear that the Russia Hoax — as he calls it — was one of, if not the absolute worst, weaponizations of the federal government in American history. What was done by the conspirators involved in the incident is incomparable to any other political crime.
“Seven years ago, I ran for office taking on all the most corrupt forces and entrenched interests in our nation’s capital. My agenda was an existential threat to a Washington establishment that got rich and powerful bleeding America dry,” the former president said. “I vowed to stop mass illegal immigration, terminate globalist trade deals, end the sellout of our country to Communist China, stand up to the permanent bureaucracy and the corporate media, and break the neocon addiction to endless foreign wars.”
Trump wrote that an “unelected cabal” comprised of folks at senior ranks in the government, working along with their preferred candidate, Hillary Clinton, and propagandists in the mainstream media, launched an attempted coup to try and essentially ensure that the former secretary of state beat him out in the 2016 election. He says the goal behind their action was to undercut his America first agenda in Congress, block the domestic reforms he wanted to introduce, and to meddle in his foreign policy.
“For nearly three years, they carried out a massive disinformation campaign and lawless persecution based on the monstrous lie that I was a traitor to my country. These Deep State plotters spied on my campaign. They forged false evidence to get illegal surveillance warrants and smear innocent people through leaks to the media. They offered $1 million for a fictitious dossier written by a foreign spy to try to frame me with treason. They shattered countless lives. The Durham Report proves that the key figures involved knew from the start that the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory was a lie. The FBI launched their witch hunt without a scrap of legitimate evidence—and when they came upon exonerating information time after time, they covered it up and kept the hoax going forward,” the op-ed continued.
Former President Trump points out that this corruption came from the top, using disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, who applied significant pressure to agents under his command for surveillance and warrants, as an example. But that isn’t the only name dropped, he also mentions former President Barack Obama and our current joke of a president, Joe Biden, claiming they too were in on the mess. In fact, Biden and Obama were both briefed in August 2016 about reports that Clinton planned to “vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian Security Services.”
He notes that these folks knew the truth and decided to cook up their own narrative that ultimately “put our country through hell.”
“As savage and cruel as the Russia Hoax was for me, my family, my staff, and so many innocent bystanders, the real victims were the American People,” Trump asserted. “At a critical moment when we should have been reducing tensions with Russia, the Russia Hoax stoked mass hysteria that helped drive Russia straight into the arms of China.”
However, as the former president points out, we do not have improved relations with Russia, which was the goal that Trump was working toward during his time in office. Instead, we have a “proxy war with Russia, fueled in part by the lingering fumes of Russiagate delirium. Ukraine has been utterly devastated. Untold numbers of people have been killed. And we could very well end up in World War III.”
It almost seems like that is what the radical progressives want, doesn’t it?
“As the Twitter Files have proven, the Radical Left establishment also used the Russia Hoax to attack freedom of speech. They built a sprawling domestic censorship regime under the guise of combatting so-called ‘Russian disinformation’—which they quickly defined to include any content they did not like. The intelligence community, the media, and the Silicon Valley tech companies then deployed this very pretext, ‘Russian disinformation,’ to censor the Biden corruption scandal in 2020—censorship orchestrated, as we now know, by the Biden campaign,” he penned in the op-ed. “In one poll last year, 79 percent of Americans following the story about Hunter Biden’s sordid laptop said truthful coverage of that wrongly censored story would have changed the outcome of the election. Our country is now paying a very steep price.”
Something every American should be concerned about is how the Russia Hoax normalized the weaponization of federal law enforcement against political enemies of the radical left, which Trump discusses in the article. The radicals, along with progressives in the media, are tickled pink to see the Justice Department under Joe Biden demand the FBI investigate parents at school board meetings, arrest pro-life activists, and of course, try to remove Trump from the 2024 playing field.
“There must be a reckoning. Accountability now lies in the hands of the voters. The Durham Report has made the stakes abundantly clear, and now the choice is ours: either the Deep State destroys America, or we destroy the Deep State,” Trump concluded.
