Another phony attack on Trump is in the works!

Marty Watters, Investigative Reporter

The folks that gave you the infamous "Steel dosseir" are now working to give you the "Waas dossier".

The former Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, who was instrumental in the Russia -Trump investigation, initiated by the phony Steele dossier, is currently under investigation for leaking confidential information to the media.

But don't think for one minute that's going to stop the Clinton clan from continuing their efforts to take down Trump.

No, the Clinton crew never gives up. Now it appears that McCabe's attorney, Michael R. Bromwich, has taken on the task of orchestrating the latest false narrative about Trump to be fed the public via their friends in the media.

So get ready for yet another phony attack on Trump!

Bromwich, the former Department of Justice Inspector General under Bill Clinton, has teamed up with New York Review of Books (NYR) and independent journalist Murray Waas to help pivot from the discredited Christopher Steele dossier and "Russiagate" to the Waas dossier and "Obstructiongate".

Waas' latest fairy tale states that Trump fired FBI Director James Comey to obstruct the "Russiagate" investigation.

But Waas' credibility had already been destroyed years ago.

For those who don't remember Waas he's a blogger who was celebrated for his reporting on the Plamegate scandal even though he has since admitted his reporting on Plamegate was false, and that the whole thing  was a hoax.

Plamegate “journalist” dis-owns book!

Now, just like he did in Plamegate, Waas is claiming to have received confidential information and documents from anonymous sources inside the DoJ.

What Rod Rosenstein Knew When He Helped Trump Fire Comey
By Murray Waas

"I was able to read the full draft of that letter, and two earlier drafts, as well as notes made by Stephen Miller, a senior policy adviser to President Trump, who helped the president write the various drafts. The Trump administration has refused to provide these records to Congress, citing claims of executive privilege."

Waas' latest claim is that he has obtained access to multiple draft letters written by President Trump to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that prove Trump obstructed justice in the firing of Comey. Drafts that only Waas can tell you about!

Waas claims to have access to draft letters that are protected by Executive Privilege? Really?

Wait! It gets better!

Bromwich is now extolling what a great case Waas makes for obstruction of justice against President Trump in his most recent article, and he is urging Democrats to use Waas' story as a guideline for questioning Robert Mueller in the upcoming July 17th hearing where Mueller will give public testimony.

Timeline of Deceit: From Trump’s Draft to Rosenstein’s Cover Story

Bromwich wants Congress to ask Mueller about the recently created Waas dossier instead of the Steele dossier.

Do you think the Democrats will oblige him? Bet on it!

Now Laurence Tribe, a Clinton apologist and strong advocate for impeaching Trump, is also on board with Waas' unsubstantiated claims. Tribe states that Waas "makes a strong case for demanding the live public testimony of Rosenstein".

Joining Bromwich and Tribe in spreading the Waas claim is the Democratic National Committee insider, Alexandra Chalupa, who in 2016 solicited dirt on Trump from the Ukrainian government. Chalupa had this to say: the "confidential draft letter Trump wrote confirms he fired FBI Director James Comey because he was investigating Putin's attack on the 2016 U.S. election."

Wow! That's rich coming from a woman who will go to prison if a legitimate investigation is ever done.

Here's the best part:

Waas' editor at NYR, Matt Seaton, was asked specific questions about Waas' claims and Seaton's answers made it crystal clear that he did not want to go on record as having any knowledge about Waas' sources, or that he even vetted Waas' story. Instead, Seaton rambled on about a "trust" he had in Waas.

Now why would Seaton behave so squirrelly?

Well, could it have anything to do with the fact that former Inspector General Bromwich has a brother that also writes for NYR?

David Bromwich, author of the book: "American Breakdown: The Trump Years and How They Befell Us"(published 1-10-2019)

Waas alleges he is getting confidential information from an anonymous source inside the DoJ. But what Waas doesn't want you to know is that he just so happens to write for the same outlet as the brother of the attorney who represents both Christine Blasey Ford and Andrew McCabe.

How convenient. Could it be that Bromwich is Waas' anonymous source who is using Waas to further a false narrative, just like the FBI did with the Steele dossier?

Sure looks that way.

Maybe Congress should invite Murray Waas to testify about who was helping him construct his dossier.

James Comey might want to fire his attorney

Marty Watters, Investigative Reporter

Former FBI Director James Comey may want to rethink his decision to have his friend, former U.S. Attorney, Patrick Fitzgerald, represent him in his upcoming Russiagate troubles.

Jimmy, trust me when I tell you Fitzgerald lacks the intelligence and intestinal fortitude to get you out of the jam you are currently in.

Case in point:

I recently informed Fitzgerald of the irrefutable evidence that I had compiled proving that his appointment by James Comey to be Special Counsel investigating the outing of Valerie Plame as a CIA employee (Plamegate), was fraudulent. And, that he (Fitzgerald) conducted a phony investigation culminating in the dog and pony show known as the Libby trial.

Fitzgerald was so rattled by my confronting him with the facts of his and Comey's criminal conduct in the Plamegate hoax that he completely lost his composure and made the following statement: "I'm not denying anything about this".

In other words. Fitzgerald pled guilty as charged!

Wow Patrick, you really shouldn't speak to me without your lawyer present.

Comically, unless Comey trades Fitzgerald in for a sturdier attorney, Fitz will be defending Comey against felony charges of leaking classified documents.

And the punchline is: the classified documents that were leaked by Comey were done so in order to ensure that another friend of his and Fitzgerald's (Robert Mueller) would be fraudulently appointed Special Counsel to perpetrate what's widely known as the Russiagate hoax.

Stay tuned, it gets better!

Canada Free Press: ‘Deep State Playbook: Comparing Plamegate and Russiagate’

Ernie Souchak, Editor-in-Chief

The Report On Mueller

By Lee Cary & Marty Watters

The only “Mueller Report” that matters was not written by Robert Mueller III. It’s written about him, and his co-conspirators.

Long before the Russiagate hoax began, the authors examined the Special Counsel methods of then FBI director Robert Mueller, former Deputy Attorney General James Comey, and once U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, before and during Plamegate.

We found that all three acted with an intent to serve and protect the Deep State.

Their modus operandi (M.O.) reflects Mueller’s Fake Investigation Playbook.

The M.O. of the Playbook was evident during the George W. Bush administration in Plamegate. Then, before and during the first term of the Trump administration, it was replicated.

Below is a step-by-step comparison of the Playbook’s 10 steps during two Special Counsel episodes.

Deep State Bombshell: Armitage confirms Mueller and Comey are Dirty Cops!

Marty Watters, Investigative Reporter

After years of dodging questions about his role in the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate the outing of CIA employee Valerie Plame, former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage finally confessed that "Plamegate" was a hoax orchestrated by senior officials at the FBI and DoJ.

And by doing so, he confirmed the fact that Robert Mueller and James Comey are Dirty Cops.

In 2006, Armitage told CBS News that he was the source for the Robert Novak article that led to the appointment of Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald. And that he, Armitage, told no one for three years because Fitzgerald asked him not mention it.

CBS September 7, 2006

Armitage says he didn't come forward because "the special counsel, once he was appointed, asked me not to discuss this and I honored his request."

Armitage now admits that was a lie.

William H Taft III, who was legal advisor to the State Department and was present at the Oct 2, 2003 meeting at FBI headquarters when Armitage confessed to being Robert Novak's source, told me, in a telephone conversation, that in that meeting, Armitage, Secretary of State Colin Powell and he were all asked by the FBI to "not tell anyone" about Armitage's confession.

This silencing came three months before Fitzgerald was appointed Special Counsel tasked to find out who leaked Valerie Plames association with the C.I.A.

EXCLUSIVE: How Deep State ‘Journalist’ Michael Isikoff Has Been Setting Up Mueller’s Enemies For Years

When asked to respond to what Taft told me, Armitage replied "you can put what Taft said on the record."

Armitage confirmed that it was FBI and DoJ officials, not Fitzgerald, who asked him to, withhold information. And by remaining silent he, Taft and Powell allowed a Special Counsel Fitzgerald to be fraudulently appointed three months later, even though everyone knew Armitage was the leaker. In short, there was no legitimate reason to appoint a Special Counsel.

How Mueller Has Been Silencing Whistleblowers To Set Up Fake Special Counsels For Years

Sound familiar?

When Armitage was pressed to provide the names of the FBI and DoJ officials that asked him to conceal his confession he stated "it was a long time ago," as if he couldn’t remember. Then he abruptly ended the conversation by saying, "I'm going to go now," and hung up.

So, we ask:

Who was Director of the FBI at the time of the meeting?

Robert Mueller.

Who was the DoJ official that appointed Fitzgerald?

James Comey.

Isn’t it time to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate the last two appointments of a Special Counsel? (Plamegate and Russiagate)

BigLeaguePolitics.com opens big “Special Counsel Mueller” can of worms

Ernie Souchak, Editor-in-Chief

During his twelve-year reign as FBI Director, Robert Mueller not only protected his criminal friends by silencing those who could expose their bad acts, he projected his friends’ crimes onto others in order to fraudulently appoint a Special Counsel. And the FISA court judge Reggie Walton — who was hacked by Obama officials John Brennan and James Clapper, according to whistleblower evidence — has been involved in more than one of these plots.

There is no better Deep State tool for punishing your enemies than a fraudulent Special Counsel (who is not accountable to anyone) with an unlimited budget and no deadline. Mueller is responsible for two such Special Counsel appointments.

First, there is Uranium One – the only genuine Russian Collusion case.

Patrick Fitzgerald’s “not not denial” that he warned Blagojevich

Ernie Souchak, Editor-in-chief

Was former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald displaying his intellectual shortcomings or was he just being duplicitous when he was given the opportunity to deny that he was the one who ultimately warned Governor Rod Blagojevich that he was recording Blago's phone conversations?

In a recent phone call Fitzgerald was asked directly:

"Do you deny that the U.S. Attorney's Office had communications with the Chicago Tribune about the Blagojevich case on Dec. 4, 2008?"

Fitzgerald's response: "I'm not denying it and I'm not not denying it."

Really, Patrick? "Not not denying it"?

You either deny it or you don't.

And for the record, you did "not deny" communicating with the Chicago Tribune before you decided to "not not deny" communicating with them.

What's next, Patrick? Are you and former White House counsel Greg Craig, who is now your law partner at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, going to do Abbott and Costello's "Who's on first" routine for us?

And by the way is "not not" the kind of nonsense you teach the students at the University of Chicago Law School in your capacity as a Feirson Distinguished Lecturer?

If so, they will never be able to practice law anywhere but Chicago.

Please inform Patrick Fitzgerald that the Office of Professional Responsibility and the U.S. Inspector Generals Office would be who conducts an investigation of a U.S. Attorney.

You are on the record claiming that you do not know who would investigate the U.S. Attorney's Office regarding the leaks to John Chase and the Chicago Tribune.

Do you agree, there should be an investigation?

The fact that the University of Chicago Law School is welcoming former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald to be part of your schools program. And, that your showering him with accolades at a time that he is embroiled in controversy. Leads me to believe that you might not be aware of just how serious this may ultimately be for your institutions reputation.

Are you aware of the following?

And, if so, have you done due diligence?

In Fitzgerald's defense, there is the distinct possibility that he really is this stupid. And let's face it, if he truly is mentally challenged, how would he know unless someone told him?

After all, the media does nothing but tell Fitzgerald how wonderfully smart he is.

In fact, the fawning Chicago media actually remained silent as Fitzgerald declared during a press conference about the Blagojevich case that the leaks to the Tribune "might have come from his office so he could not investigate them," and that he "had no idea who would investigate".

Wow! Can you believe that?

Amazingly, no one in the adoring mainstream media insisted that Fitzgerald explain those ridiculously stupid statements.

Well, Patrick, IP2P has news for you: you're not as bright as the media has led you to believe.

And now that it appears that Blagojevich will get out of prison soon, we insist that you explain your asinine statements about the leaks from your office to the Chicago Tribune.

And while you're at it, Fitz, you also need to explain to the public why you buried irrefutable evidence that:

(A) Sibel Edmonds gave you in the Plamegate scandal;

(B) John A. Shaw gave you in the Nadhmi Auchi scandal; and

(C) I, Ernie Souchak, gave you in the Blagojevich scandal.

Not to mention the well-documented burying of evidence you did in the Southern District of New York.

Judith Miller’s book canceled due to recent Plamegate confession

Ernie Souchak, Editor-in-Chief

Fox News contributor and author Judith Miller recently confessed that Dick Armitage was not the person who exposed Valerie Plame as CIA, and that "a lot of people" in Washington knew this.

Miller went on to say that she was going to tell the story of what really happened during the Plamegate scandal her way in a book due out this spring.

Keep in mind that at that time, Miller had not planned to make a confession about Plamegate. When she realized what she had done, she immediately contacted Scooter Libby in hopes that he could do damage control.

Anyone want to guess what happened next?

Suddenly, with absolutly no warning and no explanation, the release of Miller's book was canceled.

Ouch. It's gotta hurt when you write your memoir and you can't release it because of your own big mouth.

Now Miller is refusing to answer any questions about Plamegate or the cancellation of her eagerly awaited book.

And she's not alone.

Her publisher, Simon & Schuster, and Fox News are also refusing to answer any questions.

The good news: former CIA attorney John Rizzo's recent willingness to discuss Plamegate and his acknowledgment that it was a CIA disinformation campaign could very well make hearing Miller's version of events unnecessary.

We'll see, won't we?

In any case, it might be a good time for you to consider another career change, Judith.

Just a suggestion.

Former CIA attorney John Rizzo confirms Plamegate was a disinformation campaign

Ernie Souchak, Editor-in-Chief

Former acting general counsel for the CIA, John Rizzo, was recently provided articles from IP2P that state clearly and unequivocally that Plamegate was a CIA disinformation campaign, and he was asked to comment on them.

After reading these reports, Rizzo conveyed his compliments, adding that "Mr. Souchak is obviously a good, dogged reporter".

So not only did Rizzo not dispute my reports that Plamegate was a CIA disinformation campaign, he actually praised me for them.

Thank you, John.

Now we're getting somewhere. Valerie Plame, it's your turn to tell the truth.

Please start by explaining your relationship with Marc Grossman, the man who really exposed your cover, Brewster Jennings & Associates, as a CIA front.

And while you're at it, Valerie, why don't you tell everyone exactly what your husband, Joe Wilson, was doing for the American Turkish Council.

And I am sure that your adoring fans would also love to hear why you're actively campaigning to elect Hillary Clinton president after she appointed Marc Grossman special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan in 2011.

Remember it was Grossman that got caught on a FBI wiretap peddling nuclear secrets on the black market that ultimately wound up in Pakistan.

Or was that sanctioned by the CIA as well?

What say you, Valerie? You were supposed to be watching out for that kind of activity, weren't you?

In any case the good news is that we can now once and for all dispense with the ridiculous notion that Dick Armitage was the person who exposed Valerie Plame as CIA.

The Armitage cover story was so easily disputed that it was downright embarrassing for us as a nation to have swallowed such a feeble lie.

And best of all, now that John Rizzo has confirmed for us that Plamegate was a CIA disinformation campaign, will someone please lower the curtain on the nauseating "Valerie Plame Show"?

Richard Perle feeds American Thinker editor Thomas Lifson

Ernie Souchak, Editor-in-Chief

Not only was Richard Perle feeding the American Thinker what he wanted them to report during the Iraq war and Plamegate.

Turns out he was also sautéing foie gras for American Thinker editor Thomas Lifson and friends.

Lifson's good friend Bob Lee tells of an intimate gathering at the house of Washington insiders Clarice and Howard Feldman, where Perle played a co-host of sorts.

Yes, this is the same Clarice Feldman who writes for American Thinker and who recently insisted that Plamegate was not a deliberate plot by Goerge W. "Bush and pals to distract from Iraq."

It also turns out that Clarice Feldman considers Richard Perle such a good friend that she puts him to work in her kitchen when he attends her soirées.

Here's what Bob Lee wrote about the intimate gathering.

Richard Perle Sauteed The Foie Gras …

There were probably 1000s of other such conversational gourmands meeting inside the Washington Beltway on Friday night. Nine adults enjoying a 4-course gourmet dinner au conversation. Ours had a former Asst Secty of Defense, the ex-wife of The Head of The World Bank, a military historian, a Libby Trial aficionado, a right-wing fanatic from Berkley, and a North Carolina couple referred to as friends of Tom. … That grotesquely hilarious report about Apple Cheek Johnny's Poverty Castle ??? Wait til BobLee tells you THE REAL STORY!

If you want to skip down to the hilarious REAL STORY about Apple Cheek’s Monster Manse go ahead … but do come back up for this account of our Foggy Bottom Fandango.

Remember The Brunswick Stew Party a few years ago. Given my druthers I’d take that over Friday night for pure conviviality plus b-stew trumps foie gras every time with me. But, our dinner party in a prominent DC-A list neighborhood certainly added a few memories to the life larder. The Mizzus could not get out of Georgetown fast enough Saturday as urban congestion about did her in. With me it was the Euros and faux Euros that slink up /down M Street. They are sorta like Shineolas except they (the Euros) have greasier hair.

Our dear friend Thomas The Berkley Right-winger had invited us. Clarice and Howard were our gracious hosts. We had no idea who was on the guest list, nor did they. They likely still don’t know and we’re still not sure ourselves.

Howard perked up when I said I am a legendary humorist. So is my brother he said. Feldman ... yikes ... was this MARTY FELDMAN's brother??? ... Hump, what hump ... Walk this way ... I'll take the one in the turban. No ... Michael Feldman ... an NPR talk show guy that is well outside my interest sphere.

When the big man in the hat said his name was Richard Perle I first thought the guy that started those Vision Centers. Close … the former Reagan Asst Secty of Defense not affectionately known around DC as the Prince of Darkness. Richard, legend has it, was the first one to get GWB’s ear after 9/11 and strongly recommend taking down Saddam ASAP.

I introduced myself as the last remaining member of The Flying Wallendas and Mizzus said she was Stephanie Powers’ younger sister. I detected a glimmer of recognition with the name Wallenda but it flickered and died quickly. After game after game of “hey look, IT’S BOBLEE…” it was sort of nice to be naught but a whozit for an evening. Now I know how those three little white boys at the end of Dean’s bench musta felt all those years.

A pre-dinner conversational mini-joust highlighted by one of Thomas’ Napa Valley finest led us to the dinner table. I was seated between Thomas From Berkley and a little Jewish lady named Clare with a daughter at Chapel Hill and an ex-husband who was almost CIA Director and instead is Head of The World Bank – Paul Wolfowitz.

Mizzus was between Richard and Peter The Lawyer From Annapolis. During the course of four courses and about two hours of chitting and chatting, Peter actually used the word Parenthetically ... TWICE. In well over 50 years I’ve never used in once nor do I ever intend to. Peter used it with a deftness that would lead one to believe he uses it daily if not hourly. I wonder if Paul Johnson, a football coach who lives in Annapolis, has ever used the word parenthetically? I doubt it.

A French onion soufflé began our epicurean journey. At about the 15-minute mark Richard left the table. When he returned he had grease stains all over the front of his blue oxford button-down. Since I’ve been known to get a tab rowdy in eating I chose not to inquire “yo Perle, whats with the grease spots?”

Clarise explained it all … she had asked Richard to sautee the foie gras. Although he knew one should slide the foie gras delicately into the hot pan, silly Prince of Darkness DROPPED the foie gras from several inches above the skillet … voila … grease spots all over his shirt. And this was the man that convinced GWB to take out Saddam! I wonder if Cindy Sheehan knows how to sautee foie gras?

The thought occured to me twixt Course Two & Three ... suppose Ol' Fruitcake Freddie From Franklin Street had been hiding under the table? That silly wabbit's tin foil hat woulda been spinning like a top. Lord have mercy, Freddie would have been dialing up the Mutha Ship for sure to report a new CONSPIRACY!

I cleaned my plate because that’s how I was raised plus, like Mikey, I eat most anything. Mizzus nibbled and later expressed her pique at the goose liver. The Beef Wellington of Course Three was equally tasty to me but a bit too rare for Mizzus.

As the evening progressed everyone seemed to assume familiar roles … listening to Richard Perle tell about meeting with world leaders and getting the Chi Coms to reduce the price of AK47s to the Mujaheedin. Richard Perle does NOT care much for The Saudis. In other words, the same chit chat you get about anywhere. Richard did ask me which other humorists I admire the most. Since I did not mention PJ O’Rourke or Robert Benchley it didn’t much matter who I mentioned. I deftly dropped Dave Huxtable’s name and I thought I noticed a slight shiver from ex-Mrs Wolfowitz.

John McCain’s name came up. Mizzus did that finger down the throat gag sign which took Peter Parenthetical aback. The military historian lady even pretended to care on that. Richard seconded Mizzus’ low opinion of McCrazy with a few stories on him that likely are not in his official bio. Apparently John McCrazy has a hair trigger temper and the attention span of a gnat. But, unlike Barack, he has normal ears ... and unlike Hilly, he has discernible ankles.

I noted to ex-Mrs Wolfowitz that out-of-state tuition had just been increased at UNC. She said she didn’t care since her(daughter’s) father can afford it. He’s head of The World Bank. She’s likely right. I tried a second question tied to 40 Point Frank’s next career move. I lost ex-Mrs Wolfowitz … never to regain her. I later learned she is a somewhat famous anthropologist specializing in Sumatra. She woulda lost me quickly on that.

We did learn all about the shadow government that really runs Washington … the insidious webees that have been in place forever and defy all administrations and/or new personalities.

Clarice, our gracious host, attends the Scooter Libby Trial each day. She had many harsh words for Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald. I later learned from Thomas that there are at least two websites devoted to people who dislike Clarice a lot. TWO … My kinda woman!

On the drive home Saturday we stopped at the Silver Diner at Potomac Mills. Mizzus had a grilled cheese. I had a crab cake melt. It was good.

>>><<<

Wow. Although no doubt unintentionally, Bob Lee has opened a serious can of worms for the American Thinker by preserving for the record the events of that little get-together.

First thing we have to ask is this:

If Richard Perle was feeling chatty enough to talk about "meeting with world leaders and getting the Chi Coms to reduce the price of AK47s to the Mujaheedin", why did Lifson and Feldman not find this interesting enough to write about?

And as long as Perle was telling war stories, why didn't Lifson or Feldman ask him about more current topics, such as the 550 Tons of yellowcake that was then still sitting in Iraq?

And while we're at it, why didn't the American Thinker editor ask Clare Wolfowitz about the letter she wrote to George W. Bush that derailed ex-husband Paul Wolfowitz's bid to be the director of the CIA.

Instead, Thomas Lifson and Clarice Feldman continued to publish stories attacking those who disagreed with Perle or Wolfowitz without disclosing that they were close personal friends.

How is that for journalistic integrity?

We now know that Clarice Feldman's ridiculous attack on Sibel Edmonds' credibility, claiming Edmonds "misunderstood what she had overheard," certainly must have come from Richard Perle.

We also know that Feldman cannot name Perle as her source for that dubious claim due to the fact that Edmonds made it clear that if the FBI wiretap tapes she translated were ever made public, Perle would go to prison.

Remember, the Department of Defense, Perle's old stomping grounds, was instrumental in invoking states secrets privilege on Edmonds so that she could not talk publicly about what was on those tapes.

Bit of a conflict there, don't ya think, Clarice?

If that's not enough to make you ask who's running things at the American Thinker, we have reason to believe that the "military historian lady" at this private gathering was none other than Laurie Mylroie.

If so, we have a few questions for Clarice Feldman's "dear friend" Mylroie as well.

Perhaps Lifson or Feldman will get back to us on that.

In any case, we can hardly wait to read Judith Miller's tell all book due out this spring.

Judith, can you give us a preview?

Did Clarice Feldman just say “Plamegate was a deliberate plot by Bush and pals to distract from Iraq”?

Ernie Souchak, Editor-in-Chief

American Thinker writer Clarice Feldman is not only on record stating that Plamegate was a "hoax", she has also at one point or another accused half of Washington of being involved in a "conspiracy" against George W. Bush.

Right, Clarice. Poor George Bush and Dick Cheney were being picked on by all those bad people that worked for them. Ok. Got it.

While being questioned about her "conspiracy" theories, Feldman let loose with this unexpected gem:

" When do we get to Ernie's fantastical notion that Plamegate was a deliberate plot by Bush and pals to distract from Iraq? "

Holy cow! Where did that come from?

Clarice, we never said that "Plamegate was a deliberate plot by Bush and pals to distract from Iraq." But now that you mention it, that scenario would explain a great deal of unanswered questions.

For example:

Why would the CIA send Joe Wilson to Niger to investigate Saddam Hussein's alleged attempt to purchase yellowcake uranium, when the CIA and George W. Bush knew Hussein had 550 tons of yellowcake 19 miles outside of Baghdad?

And why were the yellowcake documents that Wilson said he read long before they were actually ever made available to anyone in the CIA such poor forgeries? Were the forgeries designed to be easily discovered?

Would a President really tolerate any high-ranking officials in his administration keeping secrets from him, especially during wartime, as Feldman contends?

Of course he would not.

President George W. Bush meets with Secretary of State Colin Powell and Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, Wednesday, Aug. 6, 2003.

 

So while IP2P was trying to get Feldman to explain how she came to the conclusion that the CIA, the State Department, the Department of Justice, the FBI, and the DoJ Inspector General's Office were all involved in a "conspiracy" against President George W. Bush, she answered with this out-of-the-blue defense of Bush and his Defense Dept.

And in doing so could very well have helped solve the mystery of what the "Plamegate hoax" was really all about.

Coincidentally, the DoD is where Feldman's close personal friends Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle and Douglas Feith were practically running the show during the lead up to the invasion of Iraq.

Clarice, you may have really turned us on to something here. Thank You!
