If you want to know how governments in third world countries are overturned by a corrupt few in high places of power, just look at how Democrats and their lap dog major media in the U.S. turned a blind eye to highly questionable and many believe illegal actions by Obama’s FBI, Department of Justice (DOJ),  and Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

During the days of Watergate and the Nixon administration, it was those in the GOP who tasked three of their leaders, Sens. Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz. and Hugh Scott, R-Pa., and U.S. House Leader John Rhodes, R-Ariz., to tell Nixon it was over! This after a major effort and expose' by The Washington Post which became the scandal known as Watergate.

And it was Senator Howard Baker, R-Tenn., who, as the ranking Republican on the special Senate committee investigating the Watergate break-in, asked the key and historical question, " . . . what did the president know, and when did he know it?"

In those days, like today, the media and Democrats hated the Republican president. How times have changed.

Unlike Congressional Republicans in the days of Watergate who confronted Nixon, to the best of my knowledge, not one Democrat or member of the major media has raised questions regarding the stench of corruption and illegality emanating from the top levels of the FBI, DOJ, and IRS.

Why? Because the sewer of corruption is populated by top level hold-overs from the Obama administration. An administration which will likely go down as one of the most corrupt in history.

We know that:

  • Obama’s IRS was used to target the administration’s political opponents

  • His FBI Director James B. Comey and associate Peter Strzok engaged in questionable conduct to shield Hillary Clinton and her top aides from prosecution for her private e-mail usage

  • Strzok sent anti-Trump texts to an FBI "lady friend" for which he was removed from Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s probe of Trump

  • Former Associate Attorney General Bruce Ohr met with anti-Trump dossier writer Christopher Steele and the head of Fusion GPS — hired with Democratic Party money to get dirt on Trump — while Ohr’s wife worked for that same company.

Then there is FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe who refused to recuse himself from any involvement in the Clinton investigation after his wife accepted over $700,000 in campaign funds from Clinton ally and then Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe.

As if all of this was not enough to cause heads to roll — at a minimum — many believe there may be a potential bombshell coming. It may be proven that the FBI used that anti-Trump phony dossier to get permission from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court to spy on Trump campaign officials.

Obama’s deep state imbeds in law enforcement and intelligence agencies corrupted and weaponized the law enforcement and intelligence apparatus of the U.S. government.

This unfortunately included the admitted unmasking and spying upon American citizens--all directed against an opposing political party’s Presidential candidate and incoming president Donald Trump!

As Alan M. Dershowitz, professor emeritus at Harvard Law School, wrote recently in The New York Times, "An overly flexible, easily expanded criminal statute is a loaded weapon capable of being fired by zealous prosecutors at almost any target. It’s time to store the weapon until it is really needed — and not the next time someone wants to wound his political enemies."

To Democrats who think they can pull the wool over America’s eyes on this corrupt crew, the American people are not stupid and are taking notice.

A majority of polled voters in the latest Harvard CAPS-Harris survey — 54 percent — say special counsel Robert Mueller has a conflict of interest because of his past ties to former FBI Director James B. Comey who succeeded him. That includes 70 percent of Republicans, 53 percent of independents and 40 percent of Democrats.

It’s too bad Congressional Democrats’ noses are not as sensitive as the American public’s. Americans will soon start asking why not one Democrat has even raised questions about these revelations, the IRS targeting of Republicans, or the unprecedented requests for unmasking by Obama’s national security adviser and U.N. ambassador.

It is pretty obvious that Democrats on key House and Senate committees charged with protecting the legal and foreign policy interests of our country are putting the protection of deep state Obama operatives ahead of their sworn duty to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States . . . "

Speaking of that oath, based on their silence, you would think that Congressional Democrats have their own secret oath, ". . . to support and defend the Constitution of the United States — as long as it promotes the interests of the Democratic Party and advances a leftist agenda."
