But we have just received new evidence that a principal law enforcement arm of the United States government is deeply corrupt and thoroughly politicized, and apparently willing to do anything to find some crime to pin on Donald Trump so as to prevent him from ever becoming again. We have already seen this agency deeply involved in efforts to frame Trump as colluding with Russia. It’s entirely possible and even likely that we will soon see Trump indicted and even imprisoned. In light of all that, how can anyone be confident that there will even be a free and fair 2024 election?
Consider, by way of contrast, the fact that Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) recently announced that “highly credible” whistleblowers had given him information about FBI efforts to make the Hunter Biden scandal go away. Grassley wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland on July 25 that “the information provided to my office involves concerns about the FBI’s receipt and use of derogatory information relating to Hunter Biden, and the FBI’s false portrayal of acquired evidence as disinformation. The volume and consistency of these allegations substantiate their credibility and necessitate this letter.”
Will anyone hail me as a prognosticator of extraordinary powers when I predict, correctly, that in response to this letter, Wray and Garland will do absolutely nothing, except possibly to cover their tracks more effectively? No, because anyone who has been paying attention can see that.
