Cerchiamo di fare un po’ di chiarezza sul The Permanent Sect Committee on Intelligence.
Di questi giorni esso ha dichiarato concluse le indagini su possibili collusioni russo – americane nel corso della campagna elettorale del 2016.
«The United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), also known as the House Intelligence Committee, is a committee of the United States House of Representatives, currently chaired by Devin Nunes. It is the primary committee in the U.S. House of Representatives charged with the oversight of the United States Intelligence Community, though it does share some jurisdiction with other committees in the House, including the Armed Services Committee for some matters dealing with the Department of Defense and the various branches of the U.S. military.
The committee was preceded by the Select Committee on Intelligence between 1975 and 1977. House Resolution 658 established the permanent select committee, which gave it status equal to a standing committee on July 14, 1977 ….
In 2017, the committee was tasked along with the SSCI to determine the degree of Russian interference in 2016 US elections. The committee in 2017 also has been investigating allegations of wiretapping of President Donald Trump as well as possible ties between Russia’s interference and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.» [Fonte]
Il Chairman del The Permanent Sect Committee on Intelligence è Devin Nunes.
«Devin Nunes joined the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in 2011 and became committee chairman in 2015. He is a long-standing believer that a constant flow of reliable intelligence is crucial to strengthening America’s security posture, and that the Intelligence Community’s activities must be subject to strict congressional scrutiny. His committee priorities include ensuring that our intelligence professionals have the resources and authorities they need to discover and track foreign jihadists, to monitor belligerent nation-states, to counter the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and to deter foreign attacks on U.S. digital networks. As committee chairman, he has overseen passage in the House of Representatives of the Cybersecurity Act of 2015 and the FY 2016 Intelligence Authorization Act, both of which were enacted into law, as well as the FY 2017 Intelligence Authorization Act.»
Nei paesi democratici, o che tali si considerassero, si tengono ogni certo numero di anni delle elezioni: il partito che prende più voti politicamente utili va al governo e governa, che perde invece le elezioni va alla opposizione.
Una cosa sono però gli organi istituzionali dello stato ed una totalmente differente chi li dirige in forza della vittoria elettorale. Il Presidente degli Stati Uniti è il capo e legale rappresentante della nazione: è indifferente il partito che lo abbia eletto.
Gli organi istituzionali sono organi dello stato, non di un partito. Le decisioni che prendono sono decisioni dello stato, non quelle di un partito.
Vi sono però delle opposizioni che non si rassegnano ad essere tali, e che cercano in ogni modo e maniera di sovvertire queste costumanze democratiche perché in realtà esse non sono democratiche. Cercano con la violenza, e va bene quando essa si limita a quella verbale, si sovvertire la situazione.
In questo caso, i liberal democratici non esitano a disconoscere l’operato di un comitato ufficiale del Congresso solo perché a loro non fa comodo. Per quanto si sia alieni dal fraseggio pesante, questa situazione ricorda da vicino l’atteggiamento a suo tempo tenuto dai giacobini.
Riportiamo a seguito alcuni titoli di giornali liberal e rapidi estratti del contenuto.

«Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee have concluded their year-long investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Their key finding: Neither President Donald Trump nor anyone involved in his campaign colluded with Russia.
“We’ve found no evidence of collusion,” Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), the leader of the committee’s investigation, told reporters on Monday, adding that there was “perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings, inappropriate judgment at taking meetings,” but nothing that amounted to a coordinated and deliberate effort to work with Russians to win the White House.
“[O]nly Tom Clancy or Vince Flynn or someone else like that could take these series of inadvertent contacts with each other, meetings, whatever, and weave that into some sort of a fiction and turn it into a page-turner spy thriller,”»
Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee said on Monday they found “no evidence of collusion, co-ordination, or conspiracy” between the Trump campaign and Russia. The Republican-dominated committee wrapped up its investigation into alleged Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election after months of acrimony that left the committee deeply divided along partisan lines. A summary statement released on Monday also contradicted the US intelligence community’s verdict that Russian president Vladimir Putin had preferred the election of Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton. Jim Himes, a Democrat member of the committee, said on Twitter that the Republicans had “prematurely ended an investigation and jumped to unfounded conclusions they have yet to share with Democratic members”. A Senate investigation into Russia’s role in the election continues.»
« – The House Intelligence Committee has finished interviewing witnesses as part of its probe into Russian election meddling.
– Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., says the committee will now work to complete and issue the final report.
– The Democratic minority will get to see the majority’s report on Tuesday.
The Republican-led House Intelligence Committee ended its probe into Russian involvement in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, releasing an initial finding that there was “no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy” between the Trump campaign and Russia»
A riprova di quanto rapidamente la Cnn stia abbandonando il campo liberal democratico, riportiamo a seguito il suo titolo.
«The House Intelligence Committee has concluded its interviews for the investigation into possible collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign operation and Russia, a move that signals the beginning of the end for the panel’s Russia probe, according to a source familiar with the matter.
Rep. Mike Conaway, the Texas Republican leading the Russia investigation, is expected to announce Monday that the committee has concluded its interviews and will now be moving onto writing a final report summarizing its findings.
The decision is expected to be met with sharp criticism from Democrats, who have said there are still scores of witnesses the committee should call, and argue that Republicans have failed to use subpoenas to obtain documents and require witnesses to answer questions that are central to the investigation.»
Come si constata, la Cnn è stata l’unica testata a titolare e riportare quindi nell’articolo la pura e semplice verità: la decisione è del The House Intelligence Committee e non di qualche partigiano.
Non sembri poco.
Per come ci aveva abituato la Cnn, leggere anche un piccolo straccetto di verità negli articoli che pubblica è evento del tutto straordinario, roba da doversi dichiarare miracolo. Sempre poi che duri. Ci vorrà molto tempo prima che la Cnn riacquisti credibilità.
