The Hunter (FBI) Gets Captured by the Game (Trump)



by LV

Every day things change, and the world puts on a new face
Certain things rearrange, and this whole world seems like a new place
Secretly I’ve been trailing you
Like a fox that preys on a rabbit
I had to get you and so I knew
I had to learn your ways and habits
Oh, you were the catch that I was after
But I looked up and I was in your arms and I knew that I was captured

What’s this whole world comin’ to
Things just ain’t the same
Anytime the hunter gets captured by the game

I had made such a tender trap
Hoping you might fall into it
But love hit me like a sudden slap
One kiss and then I knew it
Oh, my plan didn’t work out like I thought
‘Cause I had laid my trap for you but it seems like I got caught

What’s this whole world comin’ to
Things just ain’t the same
Anytime the hunter gets captured by the game.

From the looks of it, top FBI and Department of Justice officials have been caught red-handed playing politics with our justice system. Like the hunter in the Marvelettes hit song from the 1960s, they got caught in the tender trap they had set for Donald Trump.  

The first part of their plan was to give presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, a pass on alleged felonies ranging from violations of the Espionage Act to the willful destruction of subpoenaed evidence.  The second part of their plan was to besmirch and destroy her opponent, Donald Trump, by alleging he colluded with the Russians.  However, the cleverly conceived pincer-movement wound up entrapping the FBI itself instead of the intended game, Donald Trump.  

For the plan to work, the underlying assumption was that Clinton was a prohibitive favorite to become the next president of the United States.  At the time, it was inconceivable to law enforcement officials in the Obama administration that there would be any other outcome.  Therefore, the FBI, noted for its diligence in pursuing targets of its investigations, threw caution to the wind.  They got sloppy – real sloppy.  Some would say they were extremely careless or even, dare we say, grossly negligent.

It should be noted that the conspirators of this twisted scheme to exonerate Clinton and attack Trump were not rank-and-file FBI agents.  Instead, they were arrogant half-assed politicians at the very top of the FBI organization, along with corrupt DOJ attorneys, who thought their devious machinations would be never be brought to light.  After all, poll after poll at the time indicated that Clinton had a lock on the presidency.  She was the uncrowned queen.  

In reality, the deep-state really isn’t that deep.  It mostly consists of top tier government officials who are the decision-makers.  Beneath the tip of the iceberg are honest workers, who try to do their jobs as best they can.  Numerous reports indicate that the politically-driven decisions of a few wise guys at the top of the food chain frustrated and angered rank-and-file FBI agents who toiled to gather evidence that would have indicted anyone without powerful connections in a heartbeat.

The motivation for the scheme was simple.  No one in his right mind with any sense of self-preservation was going to indict royalty, especially one who happened to be the leading candidate of the political party in power at the time; i.e., the Democratic Party.  This mindset drove unelected unaccountable law enforcement officials at the FBI and the DOJ to ingratiate themselves to Clinton and do backflips to exonerate her.  For their service, they figured they would earn her everlasting gratitude, which would do wonders for their careers.  

So, they banded together to throw sand in our face. The fix was in from the jump.  The scheme was hatched and implemented as the praetorian guards hid behind their shields.  The conspiracy to obstruct justice assumed that the general public was too dense to see through their charade and that their lofty perch atop the premier law enforcement agency in the world would insulate them from any repercussions.  They figured it was a safe bet to take sides for Clinton and against Trump — safe, that is, until it backfired in their faces.

Like a sudden slap, Clinton lost the election and their plot began to unravel.  Slowly the tide receded and the naked bodies were seen strewn along the beach.  The deep-state had lost its cover.  Pain-in-the-ass questions were being asked for which they had no good answers.

The FBI and the DOJ tried desperately to keep the scandal under wraps.  FBI managers stonewalled Freedom-of-Information-Act requests for over a year until a judge ordered them to deliver the files, which they heavily redacted, claiming the hidden information would divulge intelligence sources and methods.  Currently, the DOJ is trying to block the public release of Congressman Devin Nunes’s memo, which alleges that the FBI abused surveillance laws.  Chief FBI investigator, Peter Strzok and his girlfriend, FBI lawyer, Lisa Page, carelessly exchanged thousands of text messages on government-issued cell phones that discuss the conspiracy to obstruct justice in real time.  Initially, an FBI spokesman said they lost thousands of the damning text messages, which spanned a critical time period, and then the FBI quickly backtracked and said the messages were recovered after an onslaught of public rage and ridicule.

With a scandal of its own making metastasizing rapidly, it’s laughable for the FBI and the DOJ to warn that its sources and the methods would be compromised if its records were released to the public.  That’s because they themselves are the source of a conspiracy to obstruct justice in order to influence the outcome of a presidential election.

The methods they used were so simple a caveman could do it.  For the most part, all FBI and DOJ management had to do was to sit on their hands to pull off one of the biggest scandals, if not the biggest scandal, in U.S. history.  The DOJ used its prosecutorial discretion to demur on charging Clinton for criminal violations of the Espionage Act and the destruction of subpoenaed evidence.  But this wasn’t their first rodeo.  They abused the same discretion in the past to give Lois Lerner a pass in the IRS scandal after she pleaded the Fifth and appeared to be guilty as hell.  God only knows how many unindicted felons are out there because prosecutors at the DOJ looked the other way.  

This aberrant behavior by attorneys at the Justice Department contrasts to the way common folk are normally treated.  No such munificent discretion is granted to Americans who have no powerful political connections.  Quite the opposite.  The FBI and the DOJ come down hard on the no-account masses and show them no mercy.  G-men over the decades have built a reputation for no-nonsense enforcement of the law.  By playing politics, their current leaders have badly tarnished that reputation and undermined the integrity of the Bureau.

Incredibly, it wasn’t enough for the FBI and the DOJ to let Clinton off the hook.  The feds sought to destroy her opponent, Donald Trump, at the same time, betraying an exaggerated sense of invulnerability and arrogance on their part.

Indications are that the DOJ and FBI used a bogus and lubricious Trump-Russia dossier, which was paid for by Hillary Clinton through the Democratic Party, to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to spy on Trump campaign officials, who supposedly colluded with the Russians during the presidential election process.  

Secretly I’ve been trailing you
Like a fox that preys on a rabbit
I had to get you and so I knew
I had to learn your ways and habits
Oh, you were the catch that I was after

So, how did the vaunted FBI lose its way?  One only needs to track the number of politically-related cases to see a pattern of prosecutorial malpractice.  The occurrences of foul-play by FBI and DOJ principals grew steadily over the tenure of the Obama administration as one scandal after another was buried with no one being criminally charged.  There was the matter of the Uranium One deal.  Lois Lerner and IRS.  Fast and Furious.  And the unmasking by Obama administration officials of their political opponents, who got caught up in the routine surveillance of foreign targets.  

The record shows that the praetorians at the FBI and the DOJ made sure they didn’t enforce the law in these cases because it would embarrass the Obama administration, whom they worked for.  This disturbing progression of subverted justice ineluctably led to the exoneration of Hillary Clinton, which enabled her to make her run for the roses without the sword of Damocles hanging over her head.  In a sense, chief FBI and DOJ officials had become a quasi-political star chamber with the power to pick and choose whom to investigate, whom to indict, and whom to exonerate.  

But exonerating Clinton wasn’t enough for them.  Instead of letting their cover-ups scroll off the public’s radar screen over time, they refused to lay low.  They figured offense is the best defense.  If it’s alright to waive charges against their political favorites, then it must be alright to pursue charges against their political enemies.  Hence, they thought it would be a wonderful idea to interfere in a presidential election and, when the results weren’t to their liking, they tried to undercut a sitting president with a biased investigation that has yet to show any evidence that President Trump colluded with the Russian government.  

By orchestrating the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate accusations against President Trump’s campaign team for supposedly colluding with the Russians during the election, law enforcement officials appear to have gone too far.  They sought to destroy Clinton’s opponent, Donald Trump, but, in the process, they themselves became the focus of attention and not in a good way.  

Like a fox that preys on a rabbit
I had to get you and so I knew
I had to learn your ways and habits
Oh, you were the catch that I was after
But I looked up and I was in your arms and I knew that I was captured

For his probe, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller selected a host of investigators and attorneys, who happened to be strong Clinton supporters.  As the probe continued, blatant conflicts of interest surfaced among its chief investigators.  There appeared a disturbing nexus between the personnel who investigated the Clinton case and the Trump-Russia probe. As mentioned earlier, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page showed virulent political animus against Trump, as the sweethearts traded thousands of damning text messages.  Former Associate Deputy Attorney General, Bruce Ohr, had compromised himself and the Bureau by meeting with Fusion GPS, the firm hired to prepare the phony Trump-Russia dossier.  Further, Ohr’s wife worked for Fusion GPS.  You can’t make this up.

Not only did FBI officials stiff-arm FOIA requests from citizen advocacy groups, they also refused to respond to record requests from congressional committees, which have constitutional oversight power over the DOJ and the FBI.  Ironically, the probe into Trump-Russia collusion has turned the klieg lights on the upper echelon of the FBI and the DOJ.  The bureaucrats tried to thwart each and every attempt to find out about their suspected use of the phony Trump-Russia dossier to acquire a FISA court warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.  And they continue to do so.

The hunters got caught in their own trap.

Suddenly things rearrange, and this whole world seems like a new place.

They thought they were exempt from FOIA requests, congressional oversight, and leaks to the media. They forgot that they are nothing more than civil servants who are supposed to work for taxpayers, not water boys for political parties and powerful politicians.  They let that sense of invincibility go to their heads.  As a result, they destroyed decades of public trust in the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Department of Justice.

They sullied the bedrock American principle of equal justice under the law.  They cynically discarded this ideal as a meaningless platitude intended for the consumption of politically naïve masses.  In real life, spineless government officials did what they thought they had to do to get ahead.  Or so they thought.

This time, their schemes to dispense unequal justice finally caught up to them.  They played political Russian roulette by targeting a sitting president with manufactured evidence paid for by his opponent, Hillary Clinton, after letting her skate away from criminal charges.  But karma is a bitch.  Their half-baked Machiavellian plan is being exposed with one stunning revelation of bias after another.  And the main players in this American tragedy at the FBI and the DOJ are feeling the heat and jumping ship or being reassigned to the gulags within their organization.  James Comey got fired, Andrew McCabe announced his retirement, James Rybicki resigned, Bruce Ohr has been demoted and reassigned, Peter Strzok has been exiled to the Human Resources Department at the FBI, Lisa Page still works as a lawyer for the FBI, and so forth.

They can run but they can’t hide.  The Lady with the scales, whom they abused, is in hot pursuit.  And, if justice finally catches up to them, as it eventually will, they will stand trial before a jury of their peers, just like the multitude of Americans they applied the law to and indicted when they held the reins of power.  What goes around comes around.

Oh, my plan didn’t work out like I thought
‘Cause I had laid my trap for you but it seems like I got caught

What’s this whole world comin’ to
Things just ain’t the same
Anytime the hunter gets captured by the game.
