On Thursday September 21st this Jew was shocked to hear that liberal icon Valerie Plame of Plamegate fame, the phony made up media scandal that the Bush derangement press and Left were hoping would bring down the Bush Administration, was in the news again making headlines. What shocked me was Plame coming out of the blue and boldly promoting an article on Twitter (praised by David Duke) accusing America's Jews as lacking integrity and being evil warmongers driving America's wars. This antisemitic tweet raised such a storm that later that day Plame was forced to issue an apology where she claimed that she was misunderstood; and that by "Jew" she meant hawkish American Jewish neo-cons like Bill Kristol, whose photo she included in the tweet.
But this article is not about that incident. It's about the strange, thought-provoking "coincidence" of Plame briefly resurfacing in the news in such a noticeable way in the middle of Special Council Robert Mueller's investigation into Russiagate: a phony, made up Trump derangement media scandal about the Trump campaign criminally colluding with the Russians to damage Hillary Clinton and win the 2016 election.
Trump derangement nuts are hoping that Russiagate will be Trump's impeachable Watergate resignation disaster - when the sudden shocking reappearance of Plame is, I believe, a certain auspicious sign that they're headed for disappointment; that Russiagate will no more turn into an infamous historic Watergate scandal, that brings down a president and forces him to resign, than was Plamegate the undoing of George W. Bush (Cheney and Rove). Indeed, it might very well turn out that Russiagate will fall far short of what Plamegate was with an outcome even less satisfying to the psychopathic bloodthirsty anti-Trump Left.
In short, Plame in the spotlight was a sign that Russiagate is no Watergate and will never evolve into one. She was a sign that Robert Mueller, who was FBI Chief when Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald (picked by then Acting Attorney General James Comey) was probing the Plame affair, is another mostly failed and frustrated Patrick Fitzgerald. In effect, Plame making news signaled that Mueller like Fitzgerald (as I wrote HERE) will end up indicting smaller fishes than Scooter Libby (Vice President Cheney's Chief of Staff) thus turning Russiagate into a Plamegate-like fiasco - a complete money wasting hoax from start to finish. And when this happens (and it will) the big winner (to the humiliation and shame of the destroy Trump media) will be Donald Trump vindicated in his view that Russiagate was a witch hunt and massive, vicious left-wing conspiracy to bring down his presidency in revenge for beating Hillary.
Above I predicted that Mueller's Russiagate probe will turn into another Plamegate fiasco, or something even more absurd. For Plamegate ended in the indictment and conviction of Scooter Libby (Vice President Cheney's Chief of Staff) for perjury and justice obstruction (not for leaking Plame's CIA identity to the press)*. If a Manafort or a Flynn is indicted, neither are in the Trump administration, this wouldn't even qualify as a Plamegate bust.
*Ironically Libby allegedly lied to the FBI (which he denied) which at the time was headed by Mueller - with Comey his boss at Justice.
