Lots of people have speculated over the last few years that Obama and/or Hillary were behind the Russia collusion hoax.
A new book claims that’s exactly what happened, and the author is Andrew McCarthy, a conservative with an extensive and impressive background in intelligence.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Book: ‘Collusion hoax’ a Clinton-Obama payback for 2016 loss to Trump
The first authoritative book about the Russia election collusion “hoax” against President Trump since special counsel Robert Muller’s final report was filed charges that the case is a conspiracy to doom the president’s reelection, and one that should be investigated.
In Ball of Collusion, National Review writer Andrew C. McCarthy said the nearly three-year scandal was hatched by former President Barack Obama and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton to punish Trump should he win.
The book, which details in readable fashion every twist and turn in the case, said the duo had two plans: Plan A was to get Clinton elected. And Plan B, “the insurance policy,” to ruin Trump with impeachment hearings and kill his reelection chances.
“This book contends that the Obama administration, abetted by Washington’s politically progressive order, exploited its control of law-enforcement and intelligence agencies to help Clinton and undermine Trump,” he wrote.
Sounds plausible, doesn’t it?
Here’s an excerpt from the book, via National Review:
As for collusion, that word we’ve heard so incessantly from pundits and leaky government officials, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has rendered his judgment that there was none — at least, not the collusion he was hunting for. There really was a collusion plot, though. And it really did target our election system. It absolutely sought to usurp our capacity for self-determination. It was just not the collusion you’ve been told about. It was not “Donald Trump’s collusion with Russia.”
Here is the real collusion scheme: in 2016, the incumbent Democratic administration of President Barack Obama put the awesome powers of the United States government’s law-enforcement and intelligence apparatus in the service of the Hillary Rodham Clinton presidential campaign, the Democratic party, and the progressive Beltway establishment. This scheme had two parts: Plan A, the objective; and Plan B, a fail-safe strategy in case Plan A imploded — which all the smartest people were supremely confident would never, ever happen . . . which is why you could bet the ranch that it would.
Plan A was to get Mrs. Clinton elected president of the United States. This required exonerating her, at least ostensibly, from well-founded allegations that were both felonious and politically disqualifying.
Plan B was the insurance policy: An investigation that Donald Trump, in the highly unlikely event he were elected, would be powerless to shut down.
If this turns out to be true, it will be like a nuclear bomb was dropped on the world of media and politics.
And lots of people would go to jail.
