The Trump colluded with Russia myth is now in full meltdown. Those people in the media that refused to abandon this story long ago are about to be embarrassed and humiliated.
Carter Page has now demanded that he be allowed to testify in a public setting. It is going to be hard for the Intelligence Committees to say no when they agreed to this with regard to James Comey.
Now that Comey is gone, the attorneys for Carter Page have been in contact with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and other DOJ officials regarding the multiple outstanding requests for immediate release of “illegitimate” FISA warrants that were allegedly filed by the Obama administration in 2016. They wouldn’t do that unless they already know what is on those FISA warrant applications.
It is clear that there never was just cause to investigate the Trump campaign. To put this in perspective, listen to the testimony by Brennan. What is missing is a legitimate reason to request a FISA warrant on someone connected with a Presidential campaign during an election:
“I encountered and am aware of information and intelligence that revealed contacts and interactions between Russian officials and U.S. persons involved in the Trump campaign that I was concerned about because of known Russian efforts to suborn such individuals. It raised questions in my mind about whether Russia was able to gain the cooperation of those individuals.”
Why didn’t any of the geniuses on the House Intelligence Committee ask Brennan a really obvious question? “Where you aware of information and intelligence that revealed contacts and interactions between Russian officials and U.S. persons involved in the Clinton campaign?”
It gets worse. John Sununu was interviewed by Alisyn Camerota and he literally laughed her out of the room. This is really fun to watch:
But it is much more than that. After desperately trying to come up with “something” to support the Russia collusion scandal Camerota was pinned down by Sununu:
Sununu: “I don’t see any evidence of collusion, Do you?
In the meantime, Harris Faulkner just may have put the final nail in the coffin:
“If it’s true, (Kushner was trying to set up a back channel) wouldn’t that signify that there was not collusion? Why would you need a back channel with the Kremlin, if in fact, you already had several established”
The Seth Rich case has not gone away. Kim Dotcom sent a letter to Robert Mueller volunteering to testify with regard to Seth Rich. Hmmmmm. The attorney representing the Seth Rich family has sued the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department to release its file regard this murder. The only thing certain, at this point, is that there are more questions than answers.
Sean Hannity was back on the air last night and he hammered the main stream media. USAA forgot that when you sell insurance to military and veterans they are unlikely to choose Rachel Maddox over Sean Hannity. USAA stopped running ads on Hannity and kept running them on Maddox. The backlash was enormous and USAA quickly caved. Hannity didn’t exactly let them off the hook. It is rare for a news commentator to criticize a sponsor, but Hannity did exactly that last night. He was sending a message.
Meanwhile, Scott Pelley, the CBS anchor on a mission to destroy Trump, was fired. He wasn’t even allowed to “go on vacation.” They cleaned out his desk while he was away on assignment for “60 Minutes.” This is more than a firing, this is being publicly humiliated.
The news coverage has turned the page and soon the focus will be less on whether or not there was collusion and more on why so many people fell for such a stupid and implausible story in the first place.
