If you go through the IG report point by point, it’s pretty obvious that we already knew most of what we’re learning.
For example, the Steele dossier was indeed the centerpiece to the FBI’s investigation. Looney leftists used it to justify their spying. However, their acts were truly criminal. They spied on Carter Page, a former Navy officer. And top FBI leaders approved this decision. Sadly, many powerful people were involved in this attempted coup of our President. Those people didn’t bother to step-in and stop the madness. Instead, they lied and covered up what was happening. Meanwhile, they all tried to portray Trump as a threat to our democracy.
All of this is exactly what we speculated. Now it was confirmed Monday by the IG’s report.
There is no doubt left. Washington, D.C. is a swamp full of rats. However, Horowitz also confirmed another conservative assertion. The mainstream media morphed into the #FakeNews the minute Donald Trump won the election.
Tucker Carlson Writes:
The report was a disaster for the credibility of our bureaucratic class in Washington. But it’s also a big, big problem for the American news media. They were exposed as liars and know-nothings as well.
We could you a million examples of this, but we’re going to give you just a few because they paint the picture.
Here’s one: In early 2018, Washington Post intelligence and national security correspondent, Shane Harris, lectured columnist Kimberley Strassel of The Wall Street Journal — someone who’s frequently on this show — about how little she knew about the story. “Yes,” he wrote condescendingly. “I am telling you the dossier was not used as the basis for a FISA warrant on Carter Page.”
Now, you may wonder how he could have known that since the FISA warrant was classified. He’s never explained. But it doesn’t matter. It was false. And now we know it’s false. But here’s the key: Harris has not apologized or even acknowledged his role in repeating falsehoods.
“Democracy dies in darkness,” right? No. His motives remain shrouded in darkness.
Or take NBC news’ so-called intelligence correspondent, Ken Dilanian, a consistent shill for the intel agencies. In the summer of 2018, Dilanian smugly tweeted this: “Trump is wrong about Carter Page, and the dossier, and the FISA warrant.”
Except it looks like Trump was right about Carter Page, and the dossier, and the FISA warrant, and Ken Dilanian and his sources in the intel community were completely wrong.
“CNN Newsroom” anchor and chief national security correspondent Jim Sciutto, meanwhile, actually did admit that the Steele dossier might have been used for the FISA warrant. But don’t be impressed. Sciutto lectured readers that “The FBI would corroborate information in the dossier, on its own, before using such intel to justify the FISA war.” In other words, you can believe your government, ladies and gentlemen, and anyone who doubts that is a bad person.
Of course, that was a lie, too. It didn’t happen. In fact, just the opposite happened. We now know, thanks to the IG report, that the FBI hid information showing the dossier was false. They didn’t confirm the information. They pretended it was real when they knew it wasn’t.
And they continued to use it to re-up the FISA warrant.
Could we get any more dishonest?
What happened to the days when reporters issued retractions alongside apologies when mistakes were made? Clearly, those days are long gone. Sciutto knew he was wrong. But he’d rather tweet Nancy Pelosi quotes than be an instrument of truth.
But it does seem a little unfair to focus on Jim Sciutto, buffoonish as he is. He was merely following the lead of almost everybody else at CNN, all of whom are frantically trying to convince you that the dossier was totally irrelevant to the FISA warrant. Right.
Instead of retractions, corrections or apologies, CNN continues to double down on their blatant lies. The sad thing is that Jeff Zucker thought his ratings would soar if he molded CNN into the foremost anti-Trump network. But ratings continue to plummet, and CNN hasn’t changed course.
And now Zucker’s got cry-baby Don Lemon prancing around telling audiences “read the report. Just read it.” And let’s not leave out Chris Cuomo, because he’s dancing in his chair as if the IG report vindicates democrats. It makes one wonder, did Cuomo read it? Because we know Lemon doesn’t have the comprehension skills to get through the first five pages. But Cuomo used to air on the side of knowledge. Apparently, Zucker replaced any redeemable qualities shared by his staff with nothing but an anti-Trump agenda. And it just backfired.
