Our very own Allen West shares some thoughts about what is happening to the Rule of Law in our country. The FBI raids on attorney Michael Cohen’s home, offices, and hotel room indicate to our Colonel that the FBI and the Department of Justice are highly politicized. This was caused by a “referral” by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. There are a lot of things to be concerned about in this attack on the President’s long-time personal lawyer. Read the details in Allen’s article today.
As Written By Colonel Allen West for Facebook:
As Y’all are reading this I am heading to Clemson, SC to address the Clemson Young Americans for Freedom chapter there on the topic “Protecting our Nation, Equipping our Troops.” Sadly, as I was returning back from Ft. Myers, FL yesterday after speaking to a great group of Veterans — including several World War II Vets — I heard some distressing news. The news left me wondering just how do we protect a Nation, its citizens when the rule of law and justice has become abjectly politicized? I am referring to the FBI raid of President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.
As reported by Fox News,
The FBI raided President Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen’s home, office and hotel room Monday to seize a collection of documents — a development that Trump slammed as “a disgrace.”
Federal agents reportedly obtained documents related to several issues, including his payments to adult-film star Stormy Daniels in the weeks leading up to the 2016 presidential election. The New York Times was first to report the raid.
“Today the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients,” Cohen’s attorney Stephen Ryan said in a statement Monday. “I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller.”
Trump lashed out Monday evening at the White House, calling Mueller’s investigation “a total witch hunt” and “an attack on our country, in a true sense.”
The FBI did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
Perhaps I am presenting something that is blatantly obvious, and rhetorical in nature, but, what does something that allegedly happened ten or so years ago with a porn star have to do with Special Counsel Robert Mueller? I am trying to ascertain how this has anything to do with Russian interference in our election or collusion? If we have come to a point where justice is all about trolling to find any and everything, then our rule of law in American has been degraded into a Stalinist style of politicization. How can it be that the Federal Bureau of Investigation would overly deem it necessary to raid Michael Cohen’s residence and office; it seems rather excessive to me.
Ok, I can hear the progressive socialist leftists ranting about him possibly destroying documents. Well, where was the FBI when Hillary Clinton was destroying computers and hard drives, you remember, bleaching out databases? Why was there never a raid of the Clinton residence? After all, they did have an unauthorized email server that was transmitting classified information.
Why didn’t the FBI ever raid the homes of Cheryl Mills or Huma Abedin, when they were caught up in a web of lies? And when did the liberal progressive left in America attain a sense of morality? After all, it was their beloved Bill Clinton who sexually assaulted a young intern in the Oval Office, while a sitting President.
Barack Obama lied about the Islamic terrorist attack in Benghazi, along with Hillary Clinton, and others, but there was no raid there…and four Americans died. We know that it was IRS employee Lois Lerner who abused her power to target conservative groups…no one raided her house. Oh yeah, she is now receiving a six-figure taxpayer funded retirement.
We have all this “collusion” between Peter Strzok, Lisa Paige, and Bruce Ohr — no FBI raids there — so will we ever know who carried the politicized Fusion GPS dossier to a secret FISA court? Heck, between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former FBI Director James Comey, who knows who is telling the truth, but no raids there.
I ask y’all to ponder this: do any of you believe that Eric Holder of Loretta Lynch would unleash their DoJ on Barack Obama? Doggone, Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress, nothing happened there. And, whatever happened with that Fast and Furious scandal that resulted in the death of US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry? Yes, another American died, but no FBI raid over that. I am quite sure our astute readers can come up with even more instances of the duplicitous hypocrisy. Heck, why has no one ever conducted a raid of George Soros? I tend to believe funding a domestic terrorist organization, Antifa, would be worthy of a little visit from the FBI. Matter of fact, why hasn’t the FBI raided Antifa?
Folks, this stinks, no, this is indeed FUBAR, and I did not even mention the criminality of the Clinton Foundation. I am quite sure the liberal progressive media is truly savoring this moment and somehow their feeble minds believe there is some impeachable offense. What the liberal progressive left had best realize, they are angering America. They are creating an environment where the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, at the upper echelons, have lost the trust and confidence of the American people.
Yes, we should trust our federal law enforcement agency, the FBI, but when there are so many blatant and politicized abuses of justice, and violations of our Constitution, namely the Fourth Amendment….trust is a hard pill to swallow.
How many more federal government agencies will be weaponized? And, who is next in this dark Stasi type of secret police politicized system of justice?
