Before the day is over, Judge Kavanaugh will likely become Justice Kavanaugh and one of the lowest points in political history will be over. But Christine Blasey Ford’s ugly, baseless accusations have inflicted much damage, not only to Kavanaugh and his family, but also to America. One by one, each of CBF’s claims are blowing up, and it’s looking more and more like her case against Kavanaugh was a setup.

Could it be that this fragile, childlike, 51 year old woman, whom we all must believe, was acting? The theory that CBF was simply the face of a deliberate plan by liberal activists led by her life long friend, former FBI special agent Monica L. McLean, is starting to gain traction.

This is the same Monica McLean who CBF once allegedly coached prior to an FBI preemployment polygraph test. McLean passed her test and remained with the FBI for 24 years, retiring in 2016.

The Conservative Tree House’s “Sundance,” believes that this woman orchestrated CBF’s case against Judge Kavanaugh. And his story is very convincing.

He reported that in (or around) 2003, McLean transferred to the Southern District of New York (SDNY), FBI New York Field Office. She worked as a Public Information Officer (PIO), side-by-side with SDNY Attorney General Preet Bharara.

Sundance points out that McLean’s PIO partner in New York, Jim Margolin, is still employed there and is coincidentally attached to the case against President Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen.

McLean, now currently retired, lists Rehoboth Beach, DE as her home address.

During her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, CBF stated that she had prepared her letter to Dianne Feinstein by herself in Rehoboth Beach, DE.

[Transcript]

MITCHELL: The second is the letter that you wrote to Senator Feinstein, dated the — July 30th of this year.

MITCHELL: Did you write the letter yourself?

FORD: I did.

MITCHELL: And I — since it’s dated July 30th, did you write it on that date?

FORD: I believe so. I — it sounds right. I was in Rehoboth, Delaware, at the time. I could look into my calendar and try to figure that out. It seemed…

MITCHELL: Was it written on or about that date?

FORD: Yes, yes. I traveled, I think, the 26th of July to Rehoboth, Delaware. So that makes sense, because I wrote it from there.

MITCHELL: Is the letter accurate?

FORD: I’ll take a minute to read it.

Sure looks like CBF had spent the four days leading up to the July 30th letter to Feinstein visiting Monica McLean. Are we really to believe that McLean had no involvement? Sundance writes:

That would certainly begin to explain quite a bit about who exactly was handling Ms. Ford; and how there would be an intentional effort, from a subject matter expert, on how to best position the attack against Brett Kavanaugh.

Who better to help scrub the internet history, and know what processes and people to enlist in such preparatory work, than a retired lawyer who worked deeply inside the FBI?

Not only did Ms. McLean possesses a particular set of skills to assist Ms. Ford, but Ms. McLean would also have a network of DOJ and FBI resources to assist in the endeavor. A former friendly FBI agent to do the polygraph; a network of politically motivated allies?

Does the appearance of FBI insider and Deputy FBI Director to Andrew McCabe, Michael Bromwich, begin to make more sense?

Do the loud and overwhelming requests by political allies for FBI intervention, take on a different meaning or make more sense, now?

Standing back and taking a look at the bigger, BIG PICTURE…could it be that Ms. McLean and her team of ideological compatriots within the DOJ and FBI, who have massive axes to grind against the current Trump administration, are behind this entire endeavor?

Considering all of the embattled, angry, institutional officials (former and current); and considering the recently fired DOJ and FBI officials; and considering the officials currently under investigation; and considering the declassification requests which will likely lead to the exposure of even more corruption…Could it be that these elements wanted to do something, anything to get back at the executive branch; and possibly change the tide?

If so, and I think the likelihood is pretty good, doesn’t everything known just easily reconcile if you think of Ms. Blasey-Ford as a tool for those ideologues?

If Ms. Monica Lee McLean and her allies wanted to strike, she couldn’t be the visible face of the confrontation because she was retired FBI. It would be too obvious. She would need a patsy; a friend who could deploy the hit on her/their behalf.  It would need to be someone she could shape, easily manage and guide etc. Someone who could be trusted, and at the same time would be trusting of them.

It is quite likely Ms. McLean selected/recruited her life-long best friend, Ms. Blasey-Ford.

It’s a very plausible theory and one that actually explains a lot of the peculiarities in the case. It explains why none of the four named witnesses have any recollection of the evening. And because CBF makes no definitive statements about time, place, how she got there and home, the incident is impossible to prove or disprove.

It explains why CBF’s mother never guessed that something was very wrong. The visible trauma on a 15-year-old girl who had just been sexually assaulted would have been difficult to hide from most mothers. Also, the fact that CBF never told any of her friends now starts to make more sense.

But, there are inherent problems with a plan like this, namely the unanticipated reactions of old boyfriends and friends, documents (or the lack thereof) such as therapy notes, records that can’t be altered like building permits and one’s travel history.

And, I also believe that McLean, if she did indeed orchestrate this fraud, and certainly CBF herself, never, ever believed the situation would go this far. Perhaps they thought they could simply plant a seed of doubt, never dreaming that CBF would be asked to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee or that it would be broadcast on national television. Instead, they probably assumed they could make an allegation, but insist upon anonymity. And that’s likely just what McLean told CBF to get her on board. Then, once Feinstein (or whomever) leaked the story, it spiraled out of control.

It doesn’t require much of a stretch of imagination to believe that the same folks who framed the President for colluding with the Russian government to win a presidential election, would be capable of a hoax like this. This is small potatoes by comparison.
