Did you notice? Something beautiful happened this week. The NYT published a story, sourced to Camp McCabe, which targeted Rosenstein. Then the WashPost responded w/a story, sourced to Camp Rosenstein, exonerating him. What are the dueling articles are all about? =>
.@LeeSmithDC explained it last night in @IngrahamAngle. Trump’s decision to declassify the FISA application, etc. has set Camp McCabe and Camp Rosenstein at each other’s throats. Thru the haze and smoke of this fight we get a clearer picture of Rosenstein’s double game. =>
He helped Trump fire Comey but then ran to Team McCabe & pretended to be on their side: re-approving their rancid FISA application, & helping them get Mueller up and running. Rosenstein did not pick a side & did not follow the law. He bounced around like a pinball. =>
The article in the NYT was Team McCabe telling Rosenstein: Don’t you dare let Trump declassify those documents. If you let us go down, we’ll take you down with us. Rosenstein was actually doing his damnedest to slow roll Trump and keep the truth from getting out. =>
But neither McCabe nor Rosenstein has many plays left. The Mueller probe was their shield but it’s out of gas. All initiative is now in the hands of Trump, who, I predict, will get those docs (or most of them) declassified soon, in time to impact the elections. =>
And so what is the beautiful thing that happened this week? For the first time, the two leading liberal papers were publishing massive leaks from admin officials and former admin officials who were fighting with each other—all of whom have been working against Trump. =>
In other words, the anti-Trump coalition has, at long last, fractured. It took a helluva a lot longer than I ever expected, but it has happened. The war is not over yet. Not by a long shot. But from now on, Trump holds the advantage.
