WASHINGTON, October 26, 2017 — The promoters of the narrative that Donald Trump conspired with Russia to steal the election from the most reprehensible figure in American politics and American life, Hillary Rodham Clinton, got a swift kick in the keister.
It turns out the discredited Trump dossier, compiled by Christopher Steele, a former member of Her Majesty’s Secret Service, was instrumental in triggering congressional, Justice Department and deep-state investigations of President Trump and his associates. However, the dossier was filled with unsubstantiated and sexually explicit material for use by a firm dedicated to smearing the enemies of its paying clients.
That firm is Fusion GPS. And their clients paid a cool $9 million for the dossier. Those clients were none other than the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. It was also discovered that another Fusion GPS client is from within the government of Mother Russia.
Foreign agents, Russian and British, worked tirelessly with Hillary Clinton and the DNC to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
Stanford University Law School professor Nathaniel Persily told Politifact,
“A foreign national spending money to influence a federal election can be a crime. And if a U.S. citizen coordinates, conspires or assists in that spending then it could be a crime.”
Professor Persily, of course, thought his esteemed legal theorizing condemned Trump to certain impeachment and hard time behind bars. It never dawned on him it actually applied to Hillary Clinton.
Persily, I’m sure, is searching feverishly through his legal tomes for loopholes designed to save the habitual liar from Chappaqua, New York.
When the Washington Post broke the Fusion GPS story, New York Times reporter Kenneth P. Vogel whined via Twitter,
“When I tried to report this story, Clinton campaign lawyer @marceelias pushed back vigorously, saying ‘You (or your sources) are wrong.”
And the Washington Post’s Maggie Haberman also took to Twitter,
“Folks involved in funding this [Fusion GPS Trump dossier] lied about it, and with sanctimony, for a year.”
There are two takeaways from the tweets above:
- When it comes to lying with “sanctimony,” fake-news media-types would very much like to keep their monopoly, thank you very much. Political reporters are smarting having carried water for many decades on behalf of the Clinton duo, Bill and Hillary. And never more so than during the 2016 presidential campaign.
- Journalists, or so we are told, are trained to be skeptical. But it’s clear from the two very representative statements above that so-called journalists suspended their natural mistrust of politicians for the sake of a specific political goal: making Hillary Clinton president of the United States.
The good news is that the American people, an apolitical lot if ever there was one, clearly saw Hillary Clinton as a craven, corrupt and perpetual liar of the first order. It was her criminal behavior, not ideology, which informed their choice on election day. They already knew what gullible journalists are only now discovering.
This could mean the media’s Trump Derangement Syndrome is abating, if only slightly. At least long enough for some of them to begin unraveling an international plot, paid for by Hillary, the DNC (and maybe the FBI’s James Comey and possibly Russia) to derail the American people’s attempt to “Make America Great Again.”
This is also Trump’s opportunity to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller and any such person appointed to harass a duly elected government by any and all Obama administration holdovers residing in the Justice Department.
It’s also an opportunity for Trump to insist that Attorney General Jeff Session stop recusing himself from quashing such witchhunts in the future, or resign so the president can appoint someone that will.
Believing Hillary Clinton’s toxic lies, we now know, is at the heart of mainstream media fake news.
