Film director Amanda Milius has just been vindicated.
In 2020, Milius released The Plot Against the President, a documentary that alleged Hillary Clinton’s campaign had colluded with intelligence agencies to falsely smear the Trump administration with links to Russia. The political left treated the film’s narrative as a right-wing conspiracy theory of the lowest order. Facebook wouldn’t allow the filmmaker advertise the film. Amazon put it under review for two weeks mulling over whether to allow it. Mainstream reviewers refused to review it.
Well, they can start writing their apologies now. Special Counsel John Durham just released the final findings of his multi-year investigation into the basis for the FBI’s surveillance of the Trump presidential campaign before, during, and after the 2016 election — and it turns out they had no legal justification for that surveillance and subsequent legal harassment against him. They did it simply because the Obama administration didn’t like Trump. A straight up soft coup. It was, as Amanda Milius suggested, quite literally a plot against the President.
Per the Federalist, “The Obama administration possessed no real evidence that then-candidate Donald Trump colluded with Russian government officials when it launched its investigation into the Trump campaign leading up to the 2016 election, according to a new bombshell report…Despite the agency’s claims that the inquiry — commonly referred to as Crossfire Hurricane — was predicated on the belief that Trump’s campaign was colluding with Russian officials leading up to the election, Durham’s report found the FBI had no evidence to warrant such an investigation.”
This is Watergate times ten, because this plot involved not just a handful of corrupt officials but entire agencies of the US government. Milius is more than vindicated.
If you haven’t seen The Plot Against the President, I strongly recommend it.
