Normally, I would be parsing the Rachel Maddow Show for my Tweeps on Twitter tonight, as I do every weeknight. Sadly, my Twitter account has been temporarily suspended. That is a story for another time. Am going to do the parsing here:
Rachel is on fire, following up the ground-breaking post by Amazon founder and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos. His bombshell revelations about Mueller – cooperator, Trumpanzee David Pecker, and his media company AMI, threatening to expose sexually explicit photos and news about Bezos’ private life, have far-reaching repercussions.
Rachel gives context to the fact Robert Mueller had entered into a Plea Agreement with National Enquirer publisher David Pecker, that would mean no prosecution in return for his truthful testimony and cooperation, related to Donald Trump. That Agreement was entered into, based on the rule that Pecker & AMI must NOT commit any criminal acts in the interim before the cases he is assisting with, are fully prosecuted and discharged.
Pecker predictably picked the wrong folks to try and outsmart. What Jeff Bezos did, was to not only reveal the threats against him, but the fact that his own reputable private investigators had discovered Pecker and AMI’s connection to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
This is the same Mohammed bin Salman who arranged the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The same financial resource for Donald Trump, Jared Kushner and the rest of the Trump Crime Family. Buying good PR meant that AMI published The New Kingdom, a glossy ad mag for bin Salman. Pecker sought out that business, through Trump.
The sheer hubris of thinking that their blackmail business model would work on The Richest Man in the World, and other investigative journalists, dovetails perfectly with that of the Traitor-in-Chief, fake president Donald Trump. They are mobsters. Just like Vladimir Putin.
Trying to silence the Washington Post, and its ongoing investigations into Trump-Russia Collusion, the Trump-Russia Conspiracy, the Trump Corporation, the Trump Foundation, the murder of Jamal Khashoggi and the oppression of dissidents and activists within Saudi Arabia, might work elsewhere. Not in America. Not even in the America that is under relentless attacks by Enemies Foreign and Domestic. Democracy Truly Dies In Darkness…
Today’s contentious appearance before the House Intelligence Committee, by “Acting” Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, is part of the same attempt to subvert Democracy, and allow an installed puppet-government to continue it’s “Domestic” destruction of American institutions, including The Constitution.
What gives me hope, is that Robert Mueller and His Team, working with other judicial and law enforcement agencies across America, is building the most critical far-reaching and prosecutable case possible together. They are being aided by the best investigative journalists, allies around the Word and concerned citizens like you and me. The very reason that their efforts will eventually succeed, is that this is NOT Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela or other entrenched autocracies.
