Goodlatte and Gowdy emerged from nowhere as the faces of the probe into Obama DOJ corruption. They played bad cop until Huber was appointed, now “It’s all good.” Really? Is…
It’s quite likely that the establishment political machinery in the DC swamp recognized long ago that their ability to obstruct investigations into their corruption that were taking place or being demanded by Republicans was waning.
In the wake of Hillary Clinton’s unexpected loss their inability to stifle calls for investigations and to effectively just sit on evidence against the widespread Obama and deep state corruption was greatly compromised. They needed an alternative, more proactive plan to insulate themselves from discovery.
We can imagine a situation in which Attorney General Jeff Sessions was sitting in his office with his crooked Deputy, Rod Rosenstein and the corrupt crony of Mueller and Comey leading the FBI, Christopher Wray, back in the fall of 2017, working out a scheme to rope-a-dope the American people.
They’d continue to obstruct the release of documents to the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees, the only real threats to them, and rely upon the smokescreens of the compromised Senate Intelligence Committee, Rep Adam Schiff and other key politicians, along with putting forth some new spokespeople intended to manipulate the trust and ignorance of the American people into a weapon against them.
They’d select a career US Attorney from outside of DC to alleviate the appearance of being swamp connected, someone from Utah, with connections to Mitch McConnell’s boy Sen Mike Lee would be good. He’s hated Trump from the beginning and still does, but has an underserved reputation for integrity. The unknown John Huber was their choice.
They started the investigation in secret, so it would be ongoing when they announced their decision not to appoint a second special counsel, declaring a need to wait and see what that investigation produces.
Naturally they’d need establishment Congressional leaders for their gambit and they’d have to be Republicans in order to have the trust of Republican voters. They’d need to be fairly high profile and adept at delivering their message. Two committee chairmen, Bob Goodlatte of the House Judiciary Committee and Trey Gowdy of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee fit the bill.
Goodlatte was not well known to many Americans as the establishment tool he has always been, so a few key statements and MAGA-friendly statements over the course of a few months could serve to craft a public persona that fit their needs.
Rep Trey Gowdy is already well known, though his chronic failures to produce results, as in the botched Benghazi sham investigation, have caused many to see him as all talk and no results, the personification of what President Trump complained about as the typical Republicans populating the GOP. Imagine them as having been selected as the operatives for the next phase of the cover up.
First they’d make the rounds of the Sunday shows, with Gowdy going so far as to endorse the Mueller witch hunt on multiple occasions. Then they’d get together and call for information to be released. Gowdy wrote the Intelligence Committee report, putting him suddenly at the forefront of what had been the purview of Reps Jordan, Meadows, DeSantis and Gaetz. Out of nowhere he was the new authority on what needed to be done, calling for a second special counsel.
Similarly Bob Goodlatte stood up on his hind legs, issued a subpoena for documents being withheld and publicly told his partners in the rope-a-dope, Sessions, Rosenstein and Wray, that they’d be facing contempt charges if they continued to ignore Congress’ demands.
In response Wray issued a statement saying he’d double the pitifully small number of personnel dedicated to the production and do his best to meet their “request.” The staff of 27 people had produced roughly 3,000 documents in over six months, a pace of 500 per month. With double that staff they should be able to raise that to 1,000 per month. There are 1.2 million documents that have been subpoenaed for delivery in a little more than a week. Who is attempting to kid whom?
Are we being lied to? Suddenly Goodlatte, as is evident in his own words in this video, is willing to go along with the handpicked Huber, ignoring the fact that he’s going to have to investigate and report on the activities of his boss, Rod Rosenstein, who is part of the investigation. There’s no way this can be anything more than a charade.
Goodlatte says that recently the FBI and DOJ are “taking the issue a lot more seriously than they were before they issued the subpoena last week.” So one week of not acting as a criminal government unto themselves is enough to sway Goodlatte?
Of course if this is how things played out nobody other than those involved would know so this is merely speculation based upon their conduct, vulnerabilities of our system and the history of the possible players involved. It’s what some on the left would call a wild conspiracy theory of the same type as a belief that Obama spied on Trump, until it was proven and became conspiracy fact.
It’s worth remembering that over the past few months both Goodlatte and Gowdy announced they’d be retiring from Congress after this term. Did they get an offer they couldn’t refuse or do they just know their reputations are going to be so trashed by what they’re doing they’ll be unable to function. Was it both?
