Analyzing investigative results in retrospect always feels unfair to the author, but Gregg Jarrett more or less has dug himself a grave and jumped into it with this wonderful piece of speculative work. Clearly, the title “The Russian Hoax” gives away the author’s position on the issue and his intentions. In fact, Jarrett does not even allow the readers to speculate - as he has taken liberties to do - about what he means. He adds the subtitle “The Illicit Scheme to Clear Hillary Clinton and Frame Donald Trump,” on the front cover to clarify that this whole thing about the FBI investigation into Trump and the Trump organization’s connections to Russia as part of a wider conspiracy set up by other malicious actors to distract everyone from Hillary, who is truly guilty.
This is what Gregg Jarrett, a legal analyst for Fox News, considers the Russian Hoax and what he spends time providing evidence for in his book. So far, the convictions or admissions of those in some of Trump’s closest circles such as Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Rick Gates, and the fact that subpoenas for the digital operations of certain RNC members in 2016 have been made by the Mueller investigation. Let’s also not forget that Russian spy, Maria Butina, who “agreed to plead guilty to a single charge of conspiracy to act as a Russian agent on America's soil without registering as required with the Justice Department” and the public information about her influence among NRA members. And the fact that Trump suggested a desire to pull out of NATO. Only time will tell whether or not Jarrett’s analyses and assertions about this Russian Hoax, Hillary’s guilt, and the deep state should count as American priorities. But let’s not judge a book by it’s cover: check out some summaries of his evidence in the subsequent pages and decide for yourself.
