Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Those loud noises you heard last night were bombshells dropping all over the nation’s capitol. – Every day the last four years has been a busy news day, but it’s hard to remember one as busy as Tuesday. Let’s review some of the action:
Get ready for Hillary III – She’s running, and no one should doubt it. Expect her formal announcement shortly after the Oct. 15 debate in Ohio. Here she is, talking about doing it:
Hillary Clinton declares she could beat @realDonaldTrump “again” during interview in a shitty, poorly-lit, echoey rented Hampton Inn boardroom — not the Oval Office in the White House pic.twitter.com/I1yzY0a4Pb

Look, I know this is distasteful, but it’s pretty much inevitable at this point. After all, she no doubt sees her best shelter from looming prosecutions as coming from the corrupt media, which is protecting Quid Pro Joe with the ludicrous rationale that any Democrat running for the presidency is somehow immune to prosecution. You will see why she needs such protection in a moment. For now, just know you need to gird yourself for another year of the Grasping Grifter cackling, coughing and fainting on your TV screens as she mounts a third, and hopefully final, bid for the nation’s high office.
The Barr/Durham investigation expands its scope. – And now you know why the Fainting Felon will be tossing her hospital gown into ring soon. Based on what their investigations into the origins of the FBI/CIA illegal spying on the Trump Campaign and Trump Transition Team have revealed, the DOJ is now expanding this investigation to include a look into the origins of the Rosenstein/Comey/Mueller coup attempt that germinated in the early months of 2017.
Speaking of Robert Mueller, it appears he perjured himself in his congressional testimony a few months ago. – The ex-American Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” told congress that when he met with President Trump a day before he was appointed to that position by Oily Rod Rosenstein, he was not interviewing for the FBI job. But now multiple people present that day are letting it be known that was at least Mueller’s pretense for being there that day:
“My understanding was I was not applying for the job,” Mueller said on July 24. “I was asked to give my input on what it would take to do the job.”
John Dowd, who served as the president’s attorney during the probe, ripped Mueller for meeting with Trump, calling it the “most dishonorable conduct I have ever witnessed.” He added, “Capt. Robert Mueller, USMC, sits in front of his commander-in-chief being interviewed for FBI director knowing he is going to investigate the president and never says a word.”
“Dishonorable Conduct” is Robert Mueller’s middle name.
White House finally sends its letter to Pelosi. – Readers of the Campaign Update knew this was coming last Thursday, and the White House finally got around to sending it on Tuesday:
The White House outlined in a defiant eight-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and top Democrats on Tuesday why it will not participate in their “illegitimate and unconstitutional” impeachment inquiry, charging that the proceedings have run roughshod over congressional norms and the president’s due-process rights.
“President Trump and his administration reject your baseless, unconstitutional efforts to overturn the democratic process,” the letter stated. “Your unprecedented actions have left the president with no choice. In order to fulfill his duties to the American people, the Constitution, the Executive Branch, and all future occupants of the Office of the Presidency, President Trump and his administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances.”
Turns out Ukraine actually revived its investigation into Hunter Biden’s pay for play operation this past January, seven months before the President’s phone call with Zelensky. – The great real reporter John Solomon laid that bombshell out on Sean Hannity’s show last night:
A newly unearthed document shows that Ukrainian officials had opened a new probe into the firm linked to Hunter Biden months before President Trump’s phone call with that country’s leader, Fox News contributor John Solomon reported late Tuesday.
Solomon said Tuesday on “Hannity” that the U.S. government knew Ukraine was planning to look again into activities at Burisma Holdings, an energy company that employed then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son as a member of its board of directors, early this year. The report is noteworthy because President Trump has been accused by Democrats of threatening in July to withhold foreign aid to Ukraine unless its new president pursued an investigation into the company and the younger Biden’s role there.
Of course, the fake news media will do everything it can to cover this inconvenient truth up, but the reality is that it completely destroys any notion that President Trump engaged in any sort of qui pro quo on his call with Zelensky.
All the President needs now is a good trial lawyer to lay his case out before the Senate should the House actually approve articles of impeachment, and hey, guess what? He has one.
Trey Gowdy will join the Trump defense team. – Many conservatives will have a problem with this, given their disappointment in Gowdy’s lack of results during his congressional probe of the Benghazi scandal several years ago. Like many members of congress, Gowdy gained a reputation for being all bark and no bite, as it were. Then again, most people simply don’t understand how powerless a congressional committee really is in the face of an utterly corrupt Justice Department like the one run by Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch for Barack Obama.
So, you’ll see people bitching and moaning about that all day today, and that’s fine. Some folks just need to vent.
But here’s reality: Trey Gowdy, before he ran for congress, was one hell of a prosecutor. In fact, he was undefeated in that role. Remember also that he served on two key House Committees during the years when the DOJ/FBI/CIA cabal was attempting to fix the 2016 election and then mounting its Mueller-led coup d’etat attempt.
Gowdy knows the truth about all of that – he has already seen everything that Barr and Durham are currently investigating, and knows what they’re going to find. Do you think, knowing what he knows, that Gowdy would agree to join the effort to defend the President and give up that cushy job as a highly-paid contributor for Fox News if he did not know he will win the case?
This is a big deal. Yesterday was a real inflection point in this whole sham.
And now we dance:
