Unless you are completely politically disconnected, and stumbled upon this blog by happenstance, you know that Donald Trump has been under a barrage of fake news and “anonymous leaks” that have asserted all sorts of nefarious plots by Mr. Trump to collude with Russia, alleging chaos within his staff and impeachable offenses.
Did you know that Trump and Bannon were fighting and Trump was going to fire him?
Did you know that Trump was going to fire Sean Spicer?
Did you know that Trump was going to fire Jeff Sessions?
Hey, wait – they’re all still there!
This week – disgraced former FBI director James Comey outed himself as a leaker. That’s right, he said he leaked a “memo” about a conversation with Trump in order to compel the appointment of a special counsel over the russia-did-it lie.
Comey said Attorney General Jeff Sessions lied and Comey said Trump tried to pressure him to drop the investigation in to former National Security Director Michael Flynn. Comey got lit up by both Jeff Sessions (the AG) and Mr. Trump himself.
One thing is clear – James Comey was trying to bring down Donald Trump after years of covering up scandals for the Clintons (most recently, the email server scandal of Hillary Clintons). Comey attempted to extricate himself from his cover up of the Hillary Clinton email scandal by implicating former AG Loretta Lynch for pressuring him to drop that investigation.
Donald Trump threw down the gauntlet – offering to go under oath to prove that Comey lied about him asking him for Loyalty and pressuring him to drop the investigation of Michael Flynn. These are the only remaining unresolved issues after Comey’s testimony.
Another leaker, “reality winner” got popped for leaking NSA documents. She is a real winner, who talked about joining the Taliban and burning down the White House.
The leaks were all stoking the inner fantasies of the media who are still feeling violated on a deep personal level after Hillary Clinton’s “stunning” loss to Donald Trump. Sorry, folks – I knew Trump was going to win starting in about August. Sometimes, drinking your own Kool-Aid has lifelong effects.
The New York Times got hammered:
In response to a series of questions from Republican Sen. James Risch about false reports based on unnamed sources, Comey exposed a widely cited New YorkTimes February 14 “bombshell” article alleging that “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence.” The article, Comey made clear, was almost entirely false, apparently based on sources who either simply didn’t know what they were talking about — a trend Comey noted among many of the leak-based stories coming out of the media.
Then CNN got hammered:
In fewer than two weeks, one CNN employee has “beheaded” President Trump, another has called Trump a “piece of sh*t,” and the network itself has been caught on video stage-managing a protest. If that is not bad enough, just yesterday The Daily Wire broke the news that CNN’s own parent company, Time-Warner, is sponsoring the nightly “assassination” of Trump.
Overall, it has been an awful year for CNN in the credibility and basic decency department, as CNN anchors have called for people to be raped and attacked 12-year-old girls who don’t want to be exposed to naked men. The network itself is also facing a discrimination lawsuit from upwards of 175 minorities who claim they were discriminated against in ways not seen since the Jim Crow South.
Things got impossibly worse for the Hitler Network Wednesday when the Comey testimony so blatantly exposed a lie the network had been pushing for days, CNN actually did something almost unprecedented … it issued a humiliating and high-profile correction of a huge story that proved to be — no surprise — a heaping pile of Fake News.
That’s right – CNN retracted a story. They alleged that Comey was going to light Trump up for Obstruction of Justice and collusion with Russia. They lied.
CNN also got caught staging an anti-ISIS protest with Muslims. There was no protest, it was a lie being created for the cameras by CNN.
NBC News was forced to issue a correction on Sunday evening after spinning its newest talent Megyn Kelly’s interview to falsely claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin “does not deny having compromising information” on President Donald Trump.
Ouch. Another nugget from the Comey testimony, the basis of the whole Russia Did it Lie was itself a lie.
