042818 Probable cause: Russia doesn’t match the eyewitness description

Just to set the stage here, imagine a rape victim – in say, oh, why not Ferguson, MO – telling police that her assailant was a six-foot-five-inch-tall white male with red hair and a big, bushy red beard.  Got that?   The eyewitness description is for a six-foot-five-inch-tall white male with red hair and a big, bushy red beard.  Would that eyewitness description justify the Ferguson police rounding up all the short black men in town as suspects?

Would that be a righteous investigation?  Or might we hear a wee bit of protest about lack of probable cause?  Methinks probable cause might be a sustained topic of some heated conversation amongst the Democrats and media talking heads, don’t you agree?

Well, the eyewitness in our case is Julian Assange, the head of Wikileaks.  He has publicly said his source was not Russia.  So how can the government have probable cause to investigate a target who does not match the eyewitness description?

And in case you protest that the DNC report saying it looked like the Russians did it, constitutes an eyewitness description … remember that part of what Wikileaks published was the revelation that CIA has tools which can hack into your system and then leave traces which make it look like the Russians did it.  The sponsors of the Steele dossier were part of a combined team (Obama administration + Clinton campaign) who had access to those tools, and they had control of the crime scene for five weeks.  At the end of which they presented a report saying, “Hey, gee whiz, whadda ya know, it looks like someone with no conceivable motive did this!”

That’s not exactly reliable eyewitness testimony.  But the geniuses of Washington grabbed that ball and ran with it.  They’re still running with it.  Their willing accomplices are loudly insisting that the geniuses of Washington be allowed to keep on running with it.

So that’s where we are, America.  No probable cause, not a shred.  No reason to be shocked by the election outcome.  No crime committed.  Denial of equal protection of the law.  The target of the investigation has no conceivable motive and does not match the eyewitness description.  But the geniuses of Washington keep right on “investigating.”

I see two possible endings for this path:  either we fire them … or they take away our freedom.
