Even yesterday, DAYS after it was revealed now that APPARENTLY (Fox, Eli Lake – Bloomberg, and others) Susan Rice, Obama’s NSC chair appears to be the person who asked for, read the unredacted secret NSA transcripts of the Trump teams discussions, and then ILLEGALLY leaked the names only CBS has mentioned this, and THEY DEFENDED RICE.
Susan Rice, who said Bo Bergdahl, about to face court martial for desertion, has served with honor and distinction. Susan Rice who told the nation that Americans had died in Libya because of a movie made here by a private person, merited defense by the only other news channel which mentioned all this – on CBS.
CBS reporter Margaret Brennan to anchor Scott Pelley:
“Well, Scott, as national security adviser to the president, Susan Rice could and did request the names of individuals who were picked up during legal surveillance of foreign nationals.” She then cited unnamed sources who told her there was nothing wrong with what Rice did:
Now, according to a former national security official, Trump associates were not the sole focus of Rice’s request, but they may have been revealed when she asked to understand why they were appearing in intelligence reports. However, Rice did not spread the information according to this former official, who insisted that there was nothing improper or political involved.
Aside from assertions of collusion by some unknown mechanism, and for some unknown reason with NO EVIDENCE YET FOUND, the only actual CRIME we have found is that SOMEONE committed a federal felony in revealing names.
What APPEARS to have happened especially after the ON THE RECORD interview of Ms Farkas on MSNBC, is that LIKE DAN RATHER and “W”, the Obama admin assuming their personal conviction of Trump and his people to be treasonous(?), thieves, who would destroy evidence of their conspiracy with Putin ... spread the secret information around the executive dept by specially signed Ob
ama EO, and that SOMEONE, and right now it looks like someone who reports DIRECTLY to Obama instead revealed the names in the ‘pursuit’ of rightness. Was this the president’s direction? Or will she turn out to be a buffer?
We observe that both 5 of 6 MSM channels AND Democrats acting under the cause of “WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TRUMP AND RUSSIA?”, instead of “IS THERE A RELATIONSHIP?”
I observe that WHEN the only felony we know of is finally covered by 1 of the 5 media channels they defend the scenario. I observe that EVERY SINGLE leader of the channels of observation and analysis (Comey, Rogers, and Clapper) has stated there is NO evidence of collusion (i.e. a crime by Americans with Russians). I observe the motives attributed to ANYTHING the Trump admin attempts. I observe the LACK of coverage of ANYTHING positive ..for instance the NY Times covers Trump’s donation of his salary to the National Park Service by stating Trump’s budget hurts them, and replaying the inauguration crowd stupidity.
I observe that Trump, from now until the day he dies, can be covered completely by this theory … take nothing Trump says LITERALLY, take everything Trump says seriously. That s NEITHER positive or negative, it just IS. So where is the media?
Let’s look to Martha Raddatz, who TYPIFIES the MSM and her incredible, iconic interview with Nikki Haley, our UN Ambassador.
ABC’s This Week went off the rails Sunday morning as fill-in host Martha Raddatz assaulted U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley with ridiculous questions about Russia, and at one point insinuated that she doesn’t speak for the U.S. “And you mentioned this. President Trump has said he respects Putin. But you say you don’t trust him. You’ve said the U.S. needs to take hacking seriously. President Trump has been dismissive of it,” Raddatz prefaced before chided, “Which one of you should our allies and adversaries believe?”
Respect…what does that imply? Maybe Time Magazine can tell us.
3 times on the Cover
oh, look, Russia’s leader – Man of the Year
Respect does not imply approval, merely acknowledgment of position, and CLEARLY that is a bipartisan observation set.
Unless, of course, you are engaged in the cause of a seditious ruination of ANYTHING the elected president of the USA does.
I seriously question the value of ANYONE in the Trump admin granting any interview. Maybe the problem is not that Trump keeps tweeting, but that he is the only one doing it.
Too bad he didn’t donate his salary to Wikileaks, or cut out the middleman and sent the money right to the FSB, Martha, back to you.
