What could be contained in the 1.2 million documents the Justice Department and FBI have refused to give Congress? There is no dispute that these agencies have a legal obligation to show Congress the documents. Still, they stall, slow-walk, obfuscate, and conceal parts of the messages that are released. It is almost a year of waiting. Even a four page memorandum seems almost impossible for the Congress to obtain from the FBI and Justice.

The lengthy, torturous nightmare of the FBI-Justice Department refusal to follow the law and give up the 1.2 million documents to the Congress causes the speculation.

Most observers believe FBI-Justice Department would not resist so strenuously if the documents were merely embarrassing, but they would resist this strenuously if the documents show criminal guilt.

A suspicion is the illegal surveillance is vastly more wide-spread than has currently been discovered. We know there was surveillance of Trump and his staff; there also is evidence that suggests the surveillance may have involved several FBI spies that were close to the Trump campaign, and there is also belief the government agencies involved in foreign security and surveillance played a major role in the Trump surveillance.

If we combine this information with what we know about the Obama Justice Department-FBI methods of playing fast and loose with surveillance during his entire administration, the question is: who all was being surveilled and who was supervising the surveillance?

There are signs that show the trail runs into the Congress and also into the White House. Available evidence suggests there was a clandestine spy management group within the Democratic congressional ranks, not officially on any organization charts, but with understanding and help with the surveillance of Trump. One email of the conspirators said: “POTUS (president of the United States) wants to be informed of everything.”

We also can trace interconnection of White House staff to those at the FBI-Justice Department. It would be unfortunate for the United States to have a rogue Department, such as the FBI-Justice Department, but it is triply unfortunate to have the Obama Administration guiding the illegalities. Many believe the Justice Department, FBI, and the media are attempting to protect the discovery of the cancer’s path all the way into the White House.

Although the actual individuals performing dishonest acts could be relatively small (perhaps under 100 people), the knowledge of the dishonesty may be far-more widespread. In Washington, D.C. the interconnections among people are complicated and intertwined. This is one reason why it is not credible when Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein (also special counsel Mueller is in the same category) claims not to realize all of the biases of the people they appointed to crucial positions. “Horse feathers,” these people worked in the same building, on the same floor, and saw each other at coffee. Mueller and Rosenstein knew exactly who they were appointing and protecting, and they knew it from day 1.

Releasing these million documents could also reveal more about the scandal ridden Obama-Clinton administration. There may be mention of other scandals, such as the IRS scandal or possibly the sale of 20 percent of the nation’s uranium supply to the Russians. Some members of the FBI-Justice Department people are connected to the sale of the uranium. This latter scandal is massive and represents a number of Hillary sycophants, holding offices in the government, who closed their eyes, held their nose, possibly had their hand out, and went along with the uranium deal.

Considering what already we know, an inspection of the documents may put to rest any remaining doubts that the Mueller investigation of Trump is a hoax, illegal, and a witch-hunt. Instead, most likely more evidence will reveal the Mueller special counsel was orchestrated by Democratic Party money in league with other agencies of government, including the Justice Department and FBI. Such information would essentially end the credibility of the Mueller investigation of Trump.

Another casuality of the documents release could be Loretta Lynch (the ex-Attorney General who met Bill Clinton at the Phoenix airport three days before Hillary was exonerated). She could be unmasked: a high-placed official who was without scruples and manipulated legal decisions because of political considerations. The documents related to Hillary’s legal problems would put Loretta Lynch in legal jeopardy and most likely her activities could be traced into the oval office.

The smell of the scandal is strong and one must suspect that we have found only the tip of the ice berg. The FBI-Justice Department is hiding much more than Hillary’s recipe books.
