In a shocking story with shocking allegations which should shock absolutely nobody:
The Justice Department is investigating whether then-FBI Director James Comey illegally leaked secret information concerning a Russian document to The New York Times and The Washington Post, the Times reported late Thursday.
Thank goodness we have freedom of the press. Thus, we can have independent and impartial investigations by The New York Times into whether a government agency investigating our government (the FBI) leaked a document from Russian sources in an attempt to influence our elections to a private agency investigating our government (The New York Times). I wonder if The New York Times will find that The New York Times was colluding with the Russians in an effort to influence our elections? I guess you’ll have to buy The New York Times to find out. Be sure to let me know how it turns out.
The most wonderful part of this story would be hard to pin down – it’s all equally wonderful. But my favorite is the part in which The New York Times describes current efforts to figure out how a Russian intelligence document came to be used by four leftist organizations: The Russians, the FBI, the Democratic Party, and The New York Times. In their relentless pursuit of the truth, The New York Times suspects that this investigation simply cannot be a coincidence:
The new review, which the Times downplayed as a possibly politically motivated probe, reportedly concerned a Russian intelligence document
Ah, of course. It’s not an ethics investigation. It’s a politically motivated probe. Which should be downplayed.
Words matter, my friend.
The Russians, the FBI, the Democrat party, and The New York Times seek only the truth. And subsequent efforts to clarify what, exactly, they were doing should be ignored, as they are “possibly politically motivated.” The Russians, the FBI, the Democratic Party, and The New York Times cooperate to influence American elections. But the investigation of that process is “possibly politically motivated.” Ew.
I really, really, really wish I was writing satire. This would be funny.
But this is not satire. And this is not funny.
Please read the article linked above. But here is one more brief passage:
Dutch intelligence accessed the document on Russian computers and provided it to the FBI. Included in the document was a discussion between Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., then the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, and Leonard Benardo, who worked with the George Soros-founded group Open Society Foundations.
Schultz told Benardo in the document that then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch would ensure Clinton was not prosecuted in the email probe.
If I made this stuff up, I’d be a wacko conspiracy theorist. But I’m not. I’m just copying and pasting off a news site that describes the documented behavior of leftists.
I really wish this was satire.
But it’s not. This is real.
Brace yourselves. This is going to be a nasty election.Published in
