Republicans and the fraudulent election

What bothers me most is wondering why the media didn't demand to see the email search warrant? USAToday reports.

Legal experts who have examined the FBI search warrant determined not enough evidence to warrant the Clinton laptop investigation.

Republicans must examine their wrong minded support for the Republican Donald Trump, in light of evidence about how the Russian government interfered with the pre-election information by hacking the Democratic National Committee (DNC) email and releasing damaging confidential data of no importance to the campaign. Moreover, there is more reason to declare the 2016 election as fraudulent, evident in that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Director James Comey had no reason to issue a search warrant for Hillary Clinton's personal laptop. Most important, now that we have been informed about how President Obama in fact used the highly sensitive "red phone" to warn the Russians not to interfere in the American elections, the fact is that Americans were not told about this high level communication. We should have been told. Ironically, President Obama goes into history as being the first US president to use the so called "red phone". It's a legacy he can now own; but Americans weren't told, at the time. Finally, it turns out, Hillary Clinton won the election's popular vote by a significant margin. In fact, the Electoral College numbers don't correlate positively with the math in the final vote tallies.

There's absolutely a lot of screwiness about the 2016 election.  

WASHINGTON — The FBI warrant that shook Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign in its final two weeks has been unsealed, and the lawyer who requested it says it offers "nothing at all" to merit the agency's actions leading up to the Nov. 8, election.

The warrant was released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by Los Angeles lawyer Randy Schoenberg, who wants to determine what probable cause the agency provided to suspect material on disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner’s computer might be incriminating to Clinton. Weiner is the estranged husband of Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin. Under the Fourth Amendment, search and seizure can only be granted when proof of probable cause of criminal findings has been documented.

The letter confirms news reports in late October that the FBI had detected “non-content header information” suggesting correspondence with accounts involved in its already-completed investigation of Clinton's private email server. The FBI request concludes there is “probable cause to believe” that the laptop contained “evidence, contraband, fruits and/or items illegally possessed."

Yet the documents show the FBI request was based on the presence of classified information on previous emails chains between Clinton and Abedin and no new evidence on the laptop at issue.

"I see nothing at all in the search warrant application that would give rise to probable cause, nothing that would make anyone suspect that there was anything on the laptop beyond what the FBI had already searched and determined not to be evidence of a crime, nothing to suggest that there would be anything other than routine correspondence between" Clinton and Abedin, Schoenberg said in an email to USA TODAY. It remains unknown "why they thought they might find evidence of a crime, why they felt it necessary to inform Congress, and why they even sought this search warrant," he said. "I am appalled." The FBI's Manhattan office did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Clinton campaign officials echoed Schoenberg's complaints Tuesday. Campaign spokesman Brian Fallon said on Twitter that the "unsealed filings regarding Huma's emails reveals Comey's intrusion on the election was as utterly unjustified as we suspected at time."

Just two days before the November 8 election, Director James Comey "covered his ass" by releasing a statement to end the investigation into the Clinton email "Where's Waldo" search.

WASHINGTON — In a stunning last-minute announcement, FBI director James Comey said Sunday the agency is still not recommending charges against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton after reviewing newly discovered emails.

In a letter to lawmakers, Comey said the FBI is standing by its original findings, made in July, that Clinton should not be prosecuted for her handling of classified information over email as secretary of State.

"The FBI investigative team has been working around the clock to process and review a large volume of emails from a device obtained in connection with an unrelated criminal investigation," Comey said in the letter. "During that process we reviewed all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of State," Comey wrote. "Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton."
In other words, the Republican campaign to defeat Secretary Hillary Clinton in 2016, was based on lies, fake news, illegal interference in the Democratic National Committee communications and a bogus "witch hunt" led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation into a "non-issue" with Hillary Clinton's email server.  Nevertheless, Republicans wrongly continue to claim an election victory they never legitimately earned. This is a horrible time for America and proves, in my mind, that Republicans have no interest in protecting and defending our US Constitution.  Unfortunately, many in the news media, particularly the ratings hungry "Morning Joe", "Mitchell Reports" (aka "Andrea Mitchell") and "FoxNews", are more interested in creating news than in reporting about the facts. Otherwise, they would have demanded to see the FBI search warrant before the election.
