It was an almost unbelievable story—fit for a spy novel, and among the most disturbing and consequential allegations of governmental abuse in recent history. The alleged abuse went right to the heart of our ability to participate in free and fair elections. But much of the U.S. media seems ready to forget about it.
On December 9 Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz reported that a critical piece of evidence used to obtain a warrant to spy on a Trump campaign associate in 2016 was falsified by an FBI lawyer.
Even before the release of the report, the New York Times had the scoop in November but buried it under a headline which suggested a sort of vindication for the FBI: “Russia Inquiry Review Is Said to Criticize F.B.I. but Rebuff Claims of Biased Acts; A watchdog report will portray the pursuit of a wiretap of an ex-Trump adviser as sloppy, but it also debunks some accusations by Trump allies of F.B.I. wrongdoing.”
The investigations are not finished…..
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stood up immediately following President Trump’s State of the Union address and ripped up the pages of his speech on camera as the president began to exit the podium.
The move followed an awkward exchange at the start of the night where Mrs. Pelosi extended her hand for a handshake, but the president snubbed her.
Both jabs caught the attention of social media users, where the exchanges began trending on Twitter.
Mrs. Pelosi said she ripped the speech because it was the “courteous” thing to do. The White House official Twitter account jumped on the speaker’s move, using it as an opportunity to showcase the guests Mr. Trump had accompany him to the address. “Speaker Pelosi just ripped up: One of our last surviving Tuskegee Airmen. The survival of a child born at 21 weeks.The mourning families of Rocky Jones and Kayla Mueller. A service member’s reunion with his family. That’s her legacy,” the White House tweeted.
When the Dems lose the House majority this November, they can thank the Speaker.
Last week Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts played politics and REFUSED TO READ SENATOR RAND PAUL’S QUESTION on the Anti-Trump whistleblower during the Senate impeachment trial!
There is NO LAW that prevents this anti-Trump CIA leaker’s name from being revealed in the impeachment investigation!
Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts was playing politics and siding with Democrats!!
Senator Rand Paul announced earlier that this afternoon at 1 PM ET he would insist on his question which reveals the name of the whistleblower.
On Friday night (Jan 31), a few days after my new book about deplatforming and cancel culture came out, the news broke that Twitter had permanently suspended Zerohedge for breaking the platform’s policies. The move was taken in response to an article penned by Buzzfeed writer Ryan Broderick which falsely accused Zerohedge of “doxxing” a Chinese coronavirus researcher. We have not amplified the false account by linking to it.
I’ll still post to them, but…..
