If You Believe in Russian Collusion, Why Can’t You Explain It?


Every single day I run up against an ever increasing issue of having to deal with people who believe in something so totally, so completely, that it shapes their perspectives, their intellect and every aspect of their reality, yet they have no capacity whatsoever to explain it. That thing is, “Russian Collusion”.

If you believe in Russian Collusion so strongly, why are you incapable of using your adult words to simply explain what it is you are talking about?

Over the past year, I have made an open challenge to every person asserting “Russian Collusion”: Simply explain what you believe happened, in your own words, without using any links to any news sources. Bonus points if you can actually cite a law you believe was broken.

Not one person has taken up this challenge, not even just using a few words to “sum up” what they believe “Russian Collusion” in the last election was.

Here is how easy it is, for me to speak about criminal activity during the last election, without using sources -from my mind and from my understanding of facts in evidence- in bullet point form. Anyone can feel free at any time to challenge the facts, but they have to be able to explain what they are asserting, as I will do here:

Fusion GPS/Sedition

Hillary Clinton’s Campaign (HRC) and The Democratic National Committee (DNC) paid Fusion GPS for a salacious dossier written by UK former-spy, Christopher Steele, on then Republican candidate Donald Trump.

This “dossier” was used by Obama’s FBI to get wire taps from a United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to spy in America on an American candidate for President, Donald Trump. People wire tapped were Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort and former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

These wire taps continued after the election.

Trump tweeted in March of 2017 that Obama had wire tapped him.

Obama denied any wire taps.

Liberal media mocked Trump for the suggestion.

Then FBI Director James Comey denied any wire taps and said he looked deeply into the FBI and found no evidence to support the claim.

By September 2017, it was revealed to the public that Donald Trump‘s ’campaign chairman, Paul Manafort was wiretapped by Obama’s FBI when James Comey was its Director.

Criminal charges are being considered against Fusion GPS Dossier author Christopher Steel, who 2 Senators say lied to Federal Authorities.

Paying for a non-substantiated dossier from one party as opposition research against a Presidential opponent, and using this paid for dossier, to manufacture the basis to wire tap the opponent before and after the Presidential contest in order to undermine his Presidency and/or frame him for “Russian Collusion”-means that HRC, the DNC, Obama and the guilty parties inside the FBI are guilty of Seditious Conspiracy.

U.S. Code › Title 18 › Part I › Chapter 115 › § 2384

18 U.S. Code § 2384 — Seditious conspiracy

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 808; July 24, 1956, ch. 678, § 1, 70 Stat. 623; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(N), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)

I find this exercise- in simply explaining reality- very easy to do. If you cannot explain “Russian Collusion” as easily-then how can you expect anyone to take you-or your belief seriously? What is it you actually believe if you can’t even explain what you think happened? Further, if you can’t actually point to a law you think was broken, what is it, exactly, you think has occurred?

These are not rhetorical questions.

If you can’t answer them, that should give you pause.

And for anyone doubting, you can read the memo, now that it is released. If you have not done so yet, I recommend you do.
