Ruslan Ostashko, PolitRussia - translated by J. Arnoldski -
Did you think that the American election campaign had already reached the bottom? Nope! There are chances that more surprises lie ahead of us, but some instances that took place over the past few days will go down in history no matter what.
It’s not every day that senators blame the director of the FBI for working for Putin, right? After FBI Director James Comey informed Congress that the FBI had resumed its investigation concerning Hillary Clinton’s storage of secret documents on a private server, he was immediately blamed for being a “Russian agent.” This is an unprecedented charge, but that’s not all.
Hillary Clinton called on the FBI director to immediately make publicly available the FBI’s evidence of ties between Russia and Donald Trump. By saying so, she meant that the FBI leadership has this evidence, but doesn’t want to present it to the American electorate.
For a moment, let’s believe Hillary Clinton and the Democratic senators who are hinting that Putin has a whole network of agents in the American business community and security agencies. Look what a lovely agent Russian intelligence has won over in the FBI director!
James Comey is a Republican, the former deputy attorney general of the United States, and the vice president of Lockheed Martin, a corporation that deals in developing top-secret weapons for the Pentagon. Comey is also a member of the board of directors of NSBC Bank and the director of the FBI personally appointed by Barack Obama. If Russian intelligence really managed to recruit such an American official, then the US has much more serious problems than interference in election campaigns.
In fact, if Clinton’s headquarters are ready to throw such accusations at the highest ranks of American security organs, then this means that the situation is really critical. If the situation were under control, then Clinton’s staff would have thought through the consequences, such as how such statements undermine the confidence of ordinary Americans and part of the American elite in the US’ intelligence services. And this is really bad for the country’s stability.
Those who believe in these accusations made in all seriousness can ask themselves the question: How did Putin possibly buy the FBI director, who, in addition to working for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, earns a lot of money from the richest and most influential transnational corporations?…
Maybe Russia isn’t so weak as the media says? And maybe it’s worth looking into just what Russia could offer specific American officials or officers? It’s time to give the Clinton headquarters an award for the best advertising for Russia’s intelligence services.
I would also like to dwell on the accusations against the FBI director, specifically that he is hiding some proof of ties between Trump and Russia from the public. Let’s think about what conclusions can be drawn from these allegations by devout American Democrats who really believe in their leaders and system’s media.
First conclusion: the CIA, NSA, and all other US intelligence agencies are made up of losers who can’t even find find Trump’s ties to Moscow, and even if they did find them, then they won’t present them to the public. And so it turns out that everything depends on the good will of an agent of Putin who, as it turns out, heads the FBI. This is already a national catastrophe.
Second conclusion: The entire leadership of the FBI is one big network of Putin’s agents. Otherwise, the American patriots from the FBI would have simply leaked to the media or handed over to Congress the lethal evidence of cooperation between Trump and Russia. This is the second national catastrophe. It’s time to introduce a state of emergency and not just appeal to the conscience of James Comey.
But I don’t see much panic in American media over this. This means that even the most hardened supporters of Clinton understand that all these accusations are nonsense.
But then another conclusion begs itself. It turns out that Clinton and co. see the whole American electorate as a bunch of idiots who can be endlessly fed even the most incredible lies and still believe in them. This is a losing position. A manipulator can and must take advantage of the weak spots of those whom he is trying to manipulate, and not merely lower the standard of manipulation.
The confidence that people will eat this up will sooner or later lead to the greater quality manipulator attracting these people to their side. And then it won’t be comments on social networks blazing, but tires on American streets.
It is this scenario that those who demand that Trump recognize the elections as legitimate are afraid of. Trump refuses to do so, as if he is leaving the opportunity open to bring people out on the streets.
Of course, if riots start in the US, then Putin will be blamed. But we’ll be too busy to respond to these accusations, because we’ll be standing in line for popcorn.
