Over a week ago, I was prepared to say I had given up on even the remotest idea of Hillary ever being held accountable. It seemed the one thing we can count on today beside taxes is Hillary walking away. Not much public confidence in justice out there.
Then came word that Durham’s office was staffing up and already conducting interviews. Then came DOJ’s announcement that Barr was doing a broad investigation. (I do like the term broad in there) And he said he was examining CIA. All right then.
So now I see a little hope in an otherwise bleak tunnel. What is there to base that hope on? I have no answer, just asking. I guess we have to hang on for the long ride, again.
Along comes the duck and cover media. George Stephanhoopla does an interview with Trump. He asks the only thing they care about — the whole reason for the interview. Suppose someone from a foreign government offers you information , would you (A)take it or (B)call FBI? So only two choices? Well, Trump said maybe you do both. Immediately the buzzers declare “wrong answer.”
Media also claims that type of information pedaling can influence elections and “undermines our democracy.” Then can we have any country left after what Hillary did? We know the details of what she did, no need to dredge through all that.
I’ll be darned, a whole interview to get that plus a new AF-1 design? But that’s all the press needed. It happens to be the same time Donald Trump Jr is speaking to the Senate, again, on that very subject. That’s not the only coincidence for George’s question of the year.
We can see a foundation forming for the defense of Hillary “the rotten” Clinton. That question is the critical predicate of it. Have everyone agree taking information is bad, calling FBI is the only answer. Then they will say that is what Hillary’s campaign did.
That defense is almost laughable after everything she did. But it is supposed to get her off the treasonous hook. (taking foreign information is treason) It is more than a defense for Hillary; it’s one for intelligence and everyone else too. So when they get nailed, they can claim to be working or cooperating with FBI, intelligence and the investigation. Media will then call them all heroes not traitors. Yep, that’s their defense coming down the pike.
Actually, George Stephanopoulos’ interview could be labeled opposition research. Though at what point in all this does press’s information pedaling become treasonous?
