ORBIS NON SUFFICIT
SOLUS DEUS SUFFICIT
This scandal — Weinstein, et al — blew up too quickly and all goes to the same political purpose, to include all the fake news. It all goes one direction. It cannot be coincidence that it does that.
What happened just before this blew up? Hillary collusion with Russians over Uranium One. Only that deal was not just Bill and Hill. It was deep into the IC and White House. This Weinstein business blew up. Managed news. Distraction accomplished.
And the original Trump/Russia story is connected to that. It, too, and earlier, was managed news to switch collusion with Russia attention from IC/Hillary, where it belongs, to Trump/Trump, where it does not. That distraction was failing, Uranium One was coming into view despite IC/Mueller’s efforts to deflect attention from it onto faked Trump/Trump collusion. So out trots the big deflection: Weinstein, et al. And who cares where that fire burns, other than women who will find difficulty now bedding their way to power because powerful men — and men always hold the preponderance of power, any kind of it, and all women know that — will not trust them to be discrete?
Legally, we are seeing a court (FISA) asked to make surveillance decisions on the basis of evidence (the dossier) suborned and manufactured by prosecutors who belong to a vast cadre of allies — inside the Federal Legislative, Executive and Judicial Branches — said prosecutors are shielding from scrutiny. And all to retain power to themselves through a POTUS, himself a clone of a female assistant, a POTUS Candidate and elements of the IC (mainly CIA and FBI), all busily bending an election or eliminating it. (And failing even at that!)
Now, the political context of that legal context is the coverup of White House, White House Candidate and IC betrayals and sales of USA sovereignty to Russia and other state (Cuba, Turkey, China, Iran, Pakistan) and non-state (ISIL, Moslem Brotherhood, DPRK, UN) actors.

Update 2: Andrew McCarthy: Forget Collusion. Can Mueller Prove Russia Committed Cyberespionage?
Rosenstein did not identify a crime because he did not have one. There are two reasons for this, but we have focused myopically on the wrong one: the fact that contacts between Trump associates and the Russian regime do not prove they conspired together in an espionage scheme. That simply shows that Mueller does not have a case. The more basic problem is that he cannot have a case. Russia’s espionage operation cannot be proved beyond a reasonable doubt, so it will never be possible to prove the Trump campaign colluded in it.
Update 3: Byron York via Glenn Reynolds: Former top spy rethinks: Maybe we shouldn’t have attacked a new president.
Reynolds: That this obviously foreseeable consequence wasn’t foreseen demonstrates that these intelligence guys aren’t very good at what they’re supposed to be good at. And it explains why their work product hasn’t been very good with regard to other countries, when they couldn’t even foresee an obvious result in their own.
