Look at just the last few years, look at the press did. They sold the phony Russian collusion narrative. They buried Hunter’s laptop, they silenced those who are actually reported on it. Then they pushed the destructive lockdowns and vilify those who question the lockdowns. They touted universal masking even of little kids. They sided with BLM at the same time covered for violent ANTIFA and anti-government protesters. And of course, can’t forget this, they obsessed endlessly over January 6th, and then they downplayed inflation.
And come on, they’re still covering for China, we know that, even when they’re starving, China is, tens of millions of their own people. So unfortunately, as we’ve seen in so many other areas of American life, the media lost its prestige and credibility long ago, just like the public health sector has lost the respect of a huge segment of the American people, just like the courts, just like the prosecutors, just like the Intel agencies, even the Pentagon, they’ve all become hyper partisan.
But remember, they’re supposed to work for us. But too often, it seems like they’re working against us. And the ideals that made our country great. For many years, the GOP was run by the Bush’s and the Cheney’s and those folks have proven over and over, that they would rather lose to the Democrats than actually do what the Republican voters want. So, I think they were kind of happy to live with a bias press corps, because they hated their own voters more than they feared the Left.
…….And a court filing late Friday, Special Counsel John Durham argued that the CIA concluded data from Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, alleging this coordination supposedly between Trump and Russia was not technically plausible, and was user created. In other words, it’s phony.
Durham also alleges that in February 2017, Sussmann provided an updated set of allegations including the Alfa Bank claims that additional allegations related to Trump to a second U.S. government agency that Fox News confirmed was indeed the CIA.
Joining me now. Jonathan Turley, George Washington University Law, Prof and Fox News Contributor. Professor, why did Durham find it necessary to get this information, this new information out and file it, so it’s obviously in the public domain?
JONATHAN TURLEY, GWU LAW PROFESSOR: Well, for one reason, Sussmann, the former Clinton campaign attorney has been really taking a scorched earth approach to the trial, which I understand but he’s trying to keep out evidence trying to oppose witnesses receiving immunity, all as an effort to keep out some of these facts. And so that has forced the hand of the Special Counsel who told the court why this is all important. And these are very important disclosures we haven’t seen before.
You know that this, the finding by the CIA, is quite telling because we know that the law firm Perkins Coie had two of the critical figures here, Sussmann, who’s under indictment and the General Counsel of the campaign, Mark Elias. Mark Elias is the figure most associated with the Steele dossier. And the campaign was just sanctioned by the FEC after they hid the funding of the Steele dossier as legal costs at that firm.
So well, Elias was accused of hiding the funding of the Steele dossier, Sussmann was accused of hiding the Clinton campaign’s role in the Alfa Bank. Both of them were debunked Russian collusion claims.
The same liberal garbage networks that screamed “RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA” on a 24 hour loop, downplayed the investigation and are now ignoring the findings that point directly at Hillary’s illegal hacking.
The FBI’s role in the persecution of President Trump and the corrupt Russian collusion hoax should have resulted in mass firings and indictments. The entire bogus ‘collusion’ fell apart the first month of Trump’s tenure, but they wanted Trump gone by any means. Even if it involved illegal wiretaps, lying to the FISA court, perjury, and pushing a fake dossier.
The more that comes out, the worse it gets.
