If you read the newspapers, tuned into the cable TV pundits or received an email from one of the Democrats running for president, youd swear Donald Trump was back to his treasonous ways.
All that was missing was an annoying OMG text exclamation punctuating the unfounded claims that Trump might violate the law in 2020 by accepting intelligence on a political rival from a foreign country. The inference, of course, is that it would come from a hostile power such as Russia or North Korea or Iran.
Actually, what Trump told ABC Newss George Stephanopoulos was that hed consider taking intelligence dirt about a rival from a friendly ally. (Norway was the actual example he used.)
Sound familiar? That is EXACTLY what the Obama administration did in 2016. Its something no one in the media or the political space grasped during the tsunami of breathless reaction that followed the interview.
In July 2016, the Obama administration accepted unsolicited information from Alexander Downer, an Australian diplomat who just happened to have helped arrange a $25 million government donation to the Clinton Foundation years before. Downer said that he had witnessed a Trump campaign aide, George Papadopoulos, bragging about some dirt that the Russians supposedly had on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
Though Downers claim was reported two-plus months after the alleged event, and was only hearsay gathered at a London tavern, the Obama administration gave it to the FBI which, in turn, thought it was weighty enough to justify opening a counterintelligence case against the lawfully elected Republican nominee for president.

Sorry. Had to.
“Aren’t delirious Democrats now accusing Team Obama of treason? “
Even if they were, they’d only be about 10 years too late. More recently, it was Hillary and the DNC who committed treason, via their many layers of collusion with the Russians, including through pro-Russia people in the Ukraine.
Anyone interested in the ‘details’ of all this, please go to my FR Home.
One strategic detail missing from that account, is that the “info on Hillary” that GP got in London was actually dropped on him by a plant, an asset of the FBI, DOJ or some other DC spook outfit, who were part of the plot to defeat Trump; or failing that, to frame him and remove him from office.
Solomon puts this together in a reasonable, unconfrontational way. There are those who say POTUS used Stephanopoulos to ensnare the Lefty loons into convicting Hildy when the time comes. We will see. Obviously Andrew McCabe believes that as long as you pay someone else to commit a crime - you are innocent... and this dope worked for the FBI?
Obama .... If you want your doctor, you can keep your doctor.
Trump .... If you like the dirty political methods by team Obama, you can keep your dirty political methods (but its our turn now)
I can’t stop laughing! They ALL fell for it.
He should have said....
>> Why would I report it to the FBI, when they and the RATs (including you George) were the ones trying to frame me? <<
