CNN Covering For DNC Corruption?

We should have known this hysteria would come after election night.

All one needs to do is look at the District of Columbia voting results to understand that President's Trump's campaign promise to Drain The Swamp would rouse every sordid creature from the depths of D.C..

The backbone of the Russian hysteria story has been built exclusively on two sources, both of which have been debunked and characterized as false.

The substance of this hysteria has been parroted by the mainstream media (MSM), lawmakers, and the Intelligence community. The goal all along by these groups has been twofold:

  • Deflect any tie to the DNC and their involvement in the leaks that harmed the Clinton candidacy and forced the removal of the chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
  • And delegitimize the Trump presidency.

The now debunked Russian dossier was brought forward by the consulting firm, Fusion GPS.

Fusion GPS is a D.C. group with deep ties to Hillary Clinton and the DNC. The group is now stonewalling congressional queries into their practices.

The New York Post wrote a recent piece detailing those connections and why the dossier is nothing more than a piece of science fiction designed to damage the president.

Another Democratic operative is the CrowdStrike crew.

CrowdStrike was the group who gained exclusive access to the DNC servers after the hack, then claimed Russia was to blame. Typically, if a foreign power gains access to sensitive information, like the damaging DNC emails, it's a felony.

In the June 21 House Intelligence Committee hearing, Rep. Trey Gowdy noted, "The DNC was the victim of a crime. I’m trying to understand why the victim of a crime would not turn over evidence to  and Jim Comey.”

To Gowdy's point. Not only was the information not turned over, the DHS chief testified that the Department of Homeland Security and FBI were not even allowed access to the servers.

Think Tanks from around the globe have debunked CrowdStrike's conclusion that Russian operatives hacked the DNC.

The "Russian House of Cards" conspiracy took a big hit on June 21.

The testimony by former DHS chief Jeh Johnson was a game-changer.

For the first time under oath, an Obama official placed the glaring hacking spotlight not on Russia, but on the DNC.

When questioned about not being allowed access to the DNC servers, Johnson replied, “I recall very clearly that I was not pleased that we were not in there helping them patch this vulnerability.”

If in fact a crime was committed by Russia, and if in fact it was democracy shuttering, and if in fact it was designed to destroy Hillary Clinton's candidacy, why didn't President Obama respond?

Instead, according to the Washington Post piece, Obama sat on this information for months because he didn't want to "influence the outcome of the election."

Huh?

The reaction to Johnson's testimony was extraordinary and expectedly over the top:

“All the nice cutesy little ethics that used to get talked about in journalism school, you’re just like, that’s adorable. That’s adorable. This is a business,” said CNN Supervising Producer John Bonifield.

As noted by the incredible undercover video with a CNN producer, what we're ingesting isn't news, it's mock outrage. It is orchestrated by the Washington one percent, and carried out and colluded by anchors, reporters, and lawmakers working hard to keep the D.C. power structure in place.

A Media Research Center study of every evening newscast since the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller on May 17 found 353 minutes of airtime devoted to the Russia probe.

That's 55 percent of all coverage of the Trump presidency during those weeks dedicated to a

"mostly bulls*** story."

Forget tax reform, health care, Syria, jobs and infrastructure.

No, let's focus on delegitimizing the president because he isn't "our guy."

As noted in a piece written by IVN, we should be watching what happens with the Wasserman Schultz investigation.

We should be paying close attention to the investigation into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

And perhaps, if the Senate Intelligence Committee has real stones, and as noted by the former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Congress should subpoena Barack Obama.
