Wheels Coming Off Mueller’s Clown Car and His Media Accomplices
If you rely on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, or PBS for your news, you may not realize what an astonishing, discrediting week or two it’s been in the Media Left’s War on Trump.
Just to hit a few low points, it was recently reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had to fire a top aid in his boundless investigation, because the FBI’s Peter Strzok is a vehement anti-Trump, pro-Clinton partisan. The taint goes deeper. Not only was Strzok a key player for Team Mueller, but Forest Gump-like, he appears to have played a major role in every development and decision relating to investigating the Clinton and Trump campaigns. He was part of the Cliniton email investigation. He attended the interviews of Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and Hillary Clinton. He massaged James Comey’s get-out-of jail speech to lessen the legal implications for Clinton. He was part of the gang that investigated and cornered Michael Flynn.
The FBI and Mueller appear to have employed a regular Inspector Javert whose raison d’etre was to exonerate Hillary and incriminate Trump.
Former federal prosecutor Nick James explains why that news alone may be enough to end Mueller’s expedition. Short version: Because prosecutors are required to turn over to defendants all potentially exculpating information. That means to press forward, the Special Counsel would probably have to lay bare all of Strzok’s texts and emails about his hate of Trump and support for Hillary, and those communications probably spread further than the FBI agent girlfriend he reportedly was talking with. Congressman Jim Jordan delivers a scathing examination of FBI Director Wray here on the subject Strzok’s stench..
The courts don’t want to be left out of the embarrassment. It was reported the judge overseeing the case against Michael Flynn was suddenly and mysteriously recused from the case. The unusual language in the announcement did not say he recused himself. Rather, he was recused. No explanation given. Hmmm.
Meanwhile, major US media continues to beclown and disgrace itself in its frenzy to manufacture and hype dirt against Trump. Honest liberal Glenn Greenwald goes on a tour de force explanation of how badly and maliciously CNN, CBS, and MSNBC bothed a story on Friday that appeared to implicate Donald Trump Jr in shady dealings with suspected Russian operatives. It turns out networks, operating site unseen with anonymous sources misstated the date of an email by 10 days, which has the effect of turning a supposed bombshell revelation of secret and dirty dealing into a benign email about information that was already in the public domain. But, for sustained hours, the networks furiously peddled it as a nuclear disaster for Trump.
Greenwald makes the following devastating observation:
But what one should expect with journalistic “mistakes” is that they sometimes go in one direction, and other times go in the other direction. That’s exactly what has not happened here. Virtually every false story published goes only in one direction: to be as inflammatory and damaging as possible on the Trump/Russia story and about Russia particularly. At some point, once “mistakes” all start going in the same direction, toward advancing the same agenda, they cease looking like mistakes.
Surreal things have happened and keep happening and the major media shows no signs of reflecting on the lessons. Rather, it’s full speed ahead. Stay tuned.
