Closing in on the Russian Connection

According to both the New York Times and the Washington Post, The Justice Department obtained a secret court-approved wiretap last summer on Carter Page, a foreign policy adviser to Trumpzilla presidential campaign, based on evidence that he was operating as a Russian agent, a government official said Wednesday.

This is just another link in the long chain of collusion being investigated by the House, the Senate, the FBI and every major news agency in America. And before you decide this is just a minor procedural step, keep in mind that  “to obtain a warrant, the government needed to show probable cause that Mr. Page was acting as an agent of Russia. Investigators must first get approval from one of three senior officials at the Justice Department. Then, prosecutors take it to a surveillance court judge.”

That means Justice wouldn’t bother getting a warrant if they didn’t think they had a case, and they wouldn’t get a warrant if there wasn’t something worth looking into.

So bombing an empty airfield isn’t going to help him. Sacrificing Bannon as a scapegoat isn’t going to change anything. Whatever was done has already been done. At some point, we’re all going to find out what was done. The only question then will be what we decide to do about it.
