The non-Fake News version of the story, when it comes out, probably goes something like, “President Trump asks intel heads to counter leaks and unauthorized surveillance. Obama appointed and hired spooks refuse to stop leaking and surveillance to try to keep the “Russia!” narrative alive in hopes that the President never finds out about the political wet-work performed at the behest of the Democrat campaign team.”
The non-Fake News version of the story might ever go something like, “Trump asked intel heads confirm what several Senators, Representatives, and Intelligence Department heads have claimed over and over on national TV, that there is no evidence of Russian-Trump election collusion.”
Hey, making up the news is fun! No wonder the media all do it!!!
I’m not linking to WAPO: Report: Trump Asked Intel Heads to Counter FBI Investigation
President Donald Trump reportedly asked the heads of American intelligence agencies to counter the FBI’s investigation of collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russian entities.
At what point does the media’s credibility run out?
Update: Former CIA Chief Squashes Accusations Trump Tried to Shut Down Investigation
Testifying before Congress on Tuesday, Obama’s former CIA chief John Brennan squashed liberal accusations that President Trump had pressured the intelligence community to shut-down their investigation in to Russian election interference.
The ranking democrat on the House Intelligence committee, Adam Schiff, asked Brennan point-blank if the President had pressured anyone to “drop” the investigation of Michael Flynn.
“Have any members of the [Intelligence Community] shared with you their concerns that the president was attempting to enlist the help of people within the intelligence community to drop the Flynn investigation?” asked Schiff.
“No Sir,” said the former CIA chief.
“Are you aware of any efforts the president has made to enlist the support of intelligence community personnel to push back on a narrative involving the collusion issue?” pressed the democrat.
“I am unaware of it,” Brennan told the committee.
Yea that’s what I thought.
