How the MEDIA has been the Silent Accomplice in the Russian Collusion Investigation.
The Strzok/Page emails confirm yet again the DOJ/FBI clique’s tactic of strategic leaking to media allies to gin up calls for investigations. They did this with Michael Flynn. They did it with Carter Page. Strategically placed media leaks that gin up public cries of “Gee somebody really oughta investigate that/him/her!” Having artificially created the demand, the FBI then moves to ‘investigate’. See how it works?
They want to place
@GenFlynn under suspicion so they could begin ‘investigating’ him. How’d they do that? Well they call up willing media people and shop a story to them. “Listen you didn’t get this from me, don’t use my name, but here’s a leak from a classified intelligence report on Flynn calling the Russian ambassador to discus OBAMA’S NEW RUSSIAN SANCTIONS!”
They took Flynn’s perfectly legal phone calls to then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak & turned them into a POSSIBLE CRIME that simply DEMANDED FBI investigation. And it ‘worked’. Imagine that.
An immediate hue and cry was raised all over the media. “What’s Flynn doing calling this Russian guy up? What’d they talk about? DID HE TRY TO DO A SECRET DEAL TO UNDERMINE OBAMA’S NEW SANCTIONS?! Did Flynn violate the Logan Act?! SOMEBODY INVESTIGATE THIS GUY!”
That was on January 12th, 2017 that David Ignatius wrote a column in the Washington Post making allegations against Flynn. All the DNC Media picked it up and by the time Trump was inaugurated on Jan. 20th, a loud hue & cry for Flynn to be investigated was nonstop. So – SURPRISE! – the FBI clique then ACTED upon the demand it had artificially created by it’s own strategic leak to a media ally and Peter Strzok showed up to ‘interview’ Flynn on January 24th.
Now we discover that with the intrepid secret help of Glenn Simpson & Christopher Steele of
#FusionGPS, this very same strategy was used to HOODWINK the FISA Court to get a surveillance warrant on minor Trump campaign figure Carter Page. After Glenn Simpson & Christopher Steele are paid by the Hillary Clinton campaign to produce this dossier & then go around to all the media shopping it’s allegations, the FBI makes USE of this.
This DOJ/FBI clique, knowing the dossier’s origins & who funded it, and EXACTLY WHO has been visiting various media sites planting stories about Carter Page & pee tapes and so on, makes the decision to out Page itself. This story and several others appeared at almost the same time from September 22-23rd, all naming page and engaging in a bunch of chin-stroking about his ties to Russia and the Trump campaign.
“Gee somebody really should investigate that Carter Page guy!” was the immediate loud response of all these planted stories in the media. AND THE FBI THEN MOVED TO DO EXACTLY THAT. Remember these FBI folks had just spent 8 years covering up extensively for all manner of Obama/Holder/Hillary corruption. Imagine what their view of TRUMP was at that time. [And still is!]
@JenniferKashani reminds me of a point I should have made:
After spying on Trump’s campaign team starting in late October up to the election itself, they found nothing they could use. Then they spied on Trump’s transition team from early Nov. to January 20th. Still they found nothing. So they CONTINUED surveillance of Trump’s team AFTER he assumed office, until the warrant ran out in Oct. 2017. And still they found….NOTHING.
Can you imagine how DUMBFOUNDED these people were after a year of spying on Trump’s team that they NEVER found anything they could use? They ended up having to launch a fake narrative in the press in January to get an investigation of Flynn started.
If these plotters had found ANYTHING they could use to take Trump down with, it’d have LEAKED long ago. STOP WORRYING. They have NOTHING.
