Collusion Against Trump: A Timeline by The Elephant's Child

Sharyl Attkisson is an investigative journalist who, she says, tries to give you the information others don’t want you to have. She has put together a timeline of the  FBI / CIA Investigation into “Russian Collusion” and the Trump Presidency, which she describes as a “work in progress.” I called it all a “long-running soap opera,” acknowledging that that is far too frivolous a title.

This is very serious stuff. We have had plenty of campaign scandals over the years, but never before one with the intelligence agencies of the United States colluding to investigate the duly elected President of the United States in an effort to find something criminal with which they can charge the president in order to bring about his impeachment and return governmental power to the Democratic Party where it “rightfully” belongs. Her Timeline helps to put all the disparate events and information into an intelligible order that you can get your mind around.

“Collusion against Trump” Timeline

2011

U.S. intel community vastly expands its surveillance authority, giving itself permission to spy on Americans who do nothing more than “mention a foreign target in a single, discrete communication.” Intel officials also begin storing and entering into a searchable database sensitive intelligence on U.S. citizens whose communications are accidentally or “incidentally” captured during surveillance of foreign targets. Prior to this point, such intelligence was supposed to be destroyed to protect the constitutional privacy rights the U.S. citizens. However, it’s required that names U.S. citizens be hidden or “masked” –even inside U.S. intel agencies –to prevent abuse.

2012

July 1, 2012: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton improperly uses unsecured, personal email domain to email President Obama from Russia.

2013

June 2013: FBI interviews U.S. businessman Carter Page, who’s lived and worked in Russia, regarding his ongoing contacts with Russians. Page reportedly tells FBI agents their time would be better spent investigating Boston Marathon bombing (which the FBI’s Andrew McCabe helped lead). Page later claims his remark prompts FBI retaliatory campaign against him. The FBI, under McCabe, will later wiretap Page after Page becomes a Donald Trump campaign adviser.
FBI secretly records suspected Russian industrial spy Evgeny Buryakov. It’s later reported that Page helped FBI build the case.

Sept. 4, 2013: James Comey becomes FBI Director, succeeding Robert Mueller.

Sharyl Atkisson has two books available, the first is Stonewalled: My fight for Truth Against the Forces of Intimidation and Harassment in Obama’s Washington.

The second is The Smear:How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See, What you Think, and How You Vote.

President Trump has railed against “Fake News” and the media scoffs, but Trump is right. He deserves a lot of credit for his accomplishments and fulfillment of his campaign promises in the wake of a national media that has forgotten it’s role in the government which, they apparently never learned in journalism school, is not to indulge in politics, but to simply try to tell the truth. Instead they have just become the mouthpiece of the Democratic Party.
