Do you remember the girl who cried “wolf”?
You do? Okay, good. Now, imagine there are hundreds, thousands of those girls in Washington D.C… and around the country.
These girls are constantly warning of danger that does not exist.
You can often find these pigtails in the establishment media and Democratic politics (oh wait, I guess I’m being a bit redundant there. My apologies).
Remember when so many were concerned with the “scandalous” firing of FBI Director James Comey?
News reporters immediately screamed “scandal!” and told readers that Donald Trump fired Comey in an attempt “to squash an FBI probe into former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn.”
According to The Daily Wire:
Trump held Comey by the ankles — upside down — out the window of the White House’s Lincoln Bedroom as he quoted lines from Scarface, reports said.
No, that didn’t happen. Here’s what Trump is said to have said to Comey, according to a memo Comey did not provide to anyone: “I hope you can let this go.” Smoke alarm! Run away! We’re all going to die!…
…The New York Times published the memo story on Tuesday, citing “two people who read the memo.”
Two people read the memo that Comey never gave them.
And, for as credible as those random memos that surface from thin air are, the Senate Judiciary Committee decided to go directly to the source and ask Comey if he’s ever “been pressured to close an investigation for political purposes.”
Was Comey ever pressured to close an investigation?
According to Comey, no.
“Not in my experience. Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something like that — without an appropriate purpose.”
“I mean where oftentimes they give us opinions that ‘We don’t see a case there and so you ought to stop investing resources in it.’ But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason.”
“That would be a very big deal. It’s not happened in my experience,” Comey told the senators.
Yes, indeed. That would be a very big deal.
And his testimony certainly suggests the bogus nature of the memo.
