BIASED Media Coverage of AGs in Trouble

MSM Session v Holder

SESSIONS: On March 2, 2017, Democrats accused Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions of misleading Congress during his confirmation hearing. While admitting that the statement Sessions made to Congress was not actually false, the MSM still devoted more than 1 hour and 12 minutes to the subject.

HOLDER: On June 28, 2012, Obama’s then-Attorney General Eric Holder became the first Cabinet member to be held in contempt of Congress for withholding documents from the House investigation into the Obama administration’s Fast and Furious scandal. The MSM yawned.

3/7 UPDATE: I just corrected the title on this graphic.  It originally said, “Media covers Attorney Generals” which I realized today was wrong on two counts.  “Media” is plural, so it’s “they cover”, not “it covers.”  Also the correct plural for Attorney General in American English is “Attorneys General.”  Sorry ’bout that.  I actually knew those things yesterday.  Dunno where my brain got off to OR WHY BOB DIDN’T CATCH IT! lol

OBAMA wouldn’t DO that, would he?

Sure, he would. And it’s not new news.  Check out the date on this cartoon:

2013 Obama spying

We KNOW that during his 8 years in the White House, President Obama had long-term taps placed on the phones of the Chief of Staff of UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR); the Director of the Rules Division of the World Trade Organisation (WTO); five top EU economic officials; Italy’s ambassador to NATO and other top Italian officials.

He stole sensitive Italian diplomatic cables between Israel and Italy and intercepted details of high level strategy discussions between between the leaders of France, Germany, and Italy; between UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel; and between EU and Japanese trade ministers.

He also wire tapped various individuals in the Associated Press and CBS and spied on Fox News’ reporter James Rosen and on his family.

The Great One lists the evidence already in the public record

Mark Levin joined “Fox & Friends Weekend” Sunday to discuss President Donald Trump’s allegations of wiretapping of Trump Tower by the Obama administration.

“This is not about President Trump’s tweeting; this is about the Obama administration spying.

“The issue isn’t whether the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign or transition of surrogates; the issue is the extent of it.

“Donald Trump is the victim. His campaign is the victim. His transition team is the victim. His surrogates are the victim.

“I will tell you this, [Obama] is more involved than he says; it’s his executive branch.”

Video [12:46] is worth watching in full.

Ingraham on Russia-Trump Allegations: ‘Typical Washington Feeding Frenzy Based on No Evidence,’ ‘Feverishly Overblown’
Conservative talker Laura Ingraham called the ongoing Russia-President Donald Trump collusion allegations a “typical Washington feeding frenzy based on no evidence,” adding that the whole thing is “feverishly overblown” and “tenuous.”
“This is a typical Washington feeding frenzy based on little to no evidence,” Ingraham said while speaking on “Fox News Sunday.”
She continued, “I think most people watching this are like, are we actually going to talk about the fact that, you know, we need to have jobs, the economy and the border enforced? I think people are saying, ‘Enough already.’”

Obama Minions Shouldn’t Act High and Mighty When It Comes to Abuse of Power

Forgive me for not wanting to hear a peep from these Obama toadies. So far, most of Trump’s missteps have been a result of incompetence, not malfeasance. Besides, I guarantee the first time Trump pulls something truly inappropriate with the press, he’ll use Obama’s behavior as a cover. Until then, I think I’ll continue ignoring Rhodes — and I suggest you do the same. If Rhodes really cared about limiting a president’s power, he wouldn’t wear his previous job title so proudly.

Top Democrat urges Justice Dept watchdog to probe possible interference
WASHINGTON – US Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer on Monday called on the Department of Justice’s inspector general to probe any possible political interference in its investigation of contacts between President Donald Trump’s associates and Russia.

In a letter to the department’s inspector, Schumer urged an “immediate investigation into whether there has been any political interference with an ongoing …(DOJ) investigation related to President Trump’s campaign, transition, and administration’s contacts with the Russian Federation and attempts of Russia to interfere with the 2016 United States election.”

‘I don’t know how anybody can defend this president – even if it’s their job,’ the she blared at the president’s spokespeople
‘You need to think of the endgame here,’ she warned, ‘because there is one at the rate we are going’
After months of advocating for candidate Trump and weeks of attempts to secure an interview with the president during his transition period, the ‘Morning Joe’ hosts have become full-throated administration opponents

Democrats blocking Trump confirmations

DEM It's not fascism when we do it

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the Democrats are stalling confirmation of not just Trump’s top cabinet picks, but also his choices for the 1,987 vacancies further down the food chain within the administration.

Their underlying goal is to allow remaining Obama-appointed bureaucrats to do as much damage to the Trump administration as they can before leaving.

Stilton on ObamaGate

2017_03 06 Obama wiretaps Trump

“We find it entirely plausible that there could be an effort by the flagrantly corrupt Obama administration to abuse power in order to undermine our election process and potentially take down a sitting President of the United States. … We encourage Trump to use every legal weapon in his Presidential arsenal to bring the truth to the American people and bring the guilty – no matter how highly placed – to justice.”

Dayum, She’s Quick

The original plan was to call this post Obama Gate, Tower Gate, Deep State Gate. My dear friend CtH, ever vigilant, did her post as I enjoyed my morning nap.

What is disgusting is that Obama has never gone away. He is staying in Washington, running the covert acts of sedition the left thinks are going to bring down the Trump administration. The faithful whores in the media are in full vigor, advancing every unsubstantiated, demonstrably false assertion from the left while at the same time screaming when Trump claims his lines were tapped before the election to PROVE IT!!

Here’s the List: More Than a Dozen Proven Victims of Obama’s Many Wiretaps
It is not unfounded that former President Obama would wire tap President Trump during the election process. This is because he has done this before. Here is a list of individuals who were wire tapped by the Obama Administration.
Obama is no stranger to wire tapping. His administration tapped phones and computers of friends and foe alike.

Ask James Rosen and Angela Merkel about Obama Spying
Clapper may think that the Obama administration is incapable of such an act, the same Obama administration that used the IRS in a way Richard Nixon only dreamed of in targeting the Tea Party movement. Such an act would indeed make Watergate look like, well, a third-rate burglary. Clapper forgets as well how the NSA and the Obama administration spied on world leaders, starting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel:
JAMES CLAPPER IS A PROVEN LIAR

Edward Snowden later released classified documents that proved Clapper lied to Congress.
On Sunday Clapper denied reports that the Obama administration was spying on Donald Trump.

Chris Coons walkback: “I have no hard evidence of collusion” between Trump world and Russians
Contradicts prior suggestion of possibly incriminating transcripts
DOOGIE HOWSER WENT BALD AND GOT A SENATOR JOB
As if proof were needed at the time of an accusation for a media that has put Trump on trial for the last 6-8 months based on innuendo about Trump campaign ties to Russia. As pointed out repeatedly, there is zero proof in the public record of such media and Democrat accusations, and no proof was demanded by the media.
In fact, Democratic Senator Chris Coons recently suggested there were incriminating transcripts of calls involving Trump or his associates:


Yet on Fox News Sunday this morning, Coons admitted (as Sen. Tom Cotton also stated on the show) that there is no hard evidence of collusion:

DeepStateGate: Trump Ends the Wiretapping Innuendo Game by Dealing Himself In
The White House is placing a substantial bet on what Congress will uncover. Don’t expect those cards to be dealt swiftly because such investigations take time. The Obama administration was highly adept at stalling investigations until the Democratic media could pronounce them “old news” and ignore the outcome.
The Trump administration can distinguish itself by cooperating energetically with this one and helping it move forward quickly. Rest assured that no matter how long it takes, the media will never consider it “old news” as long as there remains any chance for anyone connected with the Trump 2016 campaign to get in trouble over contacts with the Russians.

Obama Admin Source Confirms Wiretapping Was Conducted
A source inside the Obama administration acknowledged that wiretapping was conducted to spy on Trump during the 2016 Presidential election.
“Democrat Kathy Arue: “My sources from the White House told me, she thinks it’s all true. She said, um there were concerns that Trump-and this is from the White House and the administration inside the White House…there were concerns that Trump and his surrogates may have been colluding with the Russians and a possible bargaining chip to influence the election, therefore a wiretap was conducted.”
That’s a load of crap.
The Obama administration knew there were no Trump ties to Russia that is just the excuse they are using now to try to cover for their illegal activity.

Holder Admits to Coup Led By Obama

Media Hypocrisy: Jeff Sessions and Russia vs. Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress
We spend a lot of our time correcting misreporting, slopping reporting, and reporting presented as objective when it clearly is not.
Increasingly, it’s apparent the attempt to oust newly-minted Attorney General Sessions was a good, old-fashioned media hit job. Who was behind it, we don’t know. These things seldom happen on their own, especially in the age of a completely incurious press.
The good folks over at the Media Research Center studied media coverage of the Sessions incident and compared it with the amount of coverage previous Attorney General Eric Holder received when he was in contempt of Congress. The results? Well, they’re pretty much exactly what you’d expect them to be, sadly.
Seven times more coverage was devoted to Sessions.
New Acting AG Will Enforce Trump Immigration Order
REMEMBER SALLY YATES? SHE WAS THE ASSISTANT AG WHO WAS FIRED FOR COUNTERMANDING TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION ORDER.
HAD SHE NOT BEEN FIRED, SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATING THE BULLSHIT CLAIMS SESSIONS COLLUDED WITH THE RUSSKIES. DO YOU THINK THAT WAS NOT OBAMA’S PLAN?
New Acting AG Will Enforce Trump Immigration Order

Report: Trump furious that Sessions recused himself
SESSIONS IS THE KIND OF HONORABLE MAN WHO WOULD BE STAMPEDED BY THE MOB LUSTING FOR MORE SCALPS.
TRUMP SAYS,’SCREW YOU!’
Sessions said he made his decision after consulting with officials at the Justice Department, who recommended he should no longer participate in the probe.
Washington Post reporter Robert Costa tweeted Saturday morning that President Trump left the White House “in a fury” on Friday, “fuming about [Jeff] Sessions’s recusal and telling aides that Sessions shouldn’t have recused himself,” also calling the reports of his meeting “bull.”
ABC News also reported that Trump went “ballistic,” on Friday, also over the Sessions news
Hours before the Sessions press conference, Trump threw his full support behind his embattled attorney general, who was a loyal campaign surrogate, and insisted he should not recuse himself from the inquiry.
Trump officials have repeatedly dismissed the Sessions accusations as partisan attacks against the president in the aftermath of his speech.

Pence Goes On The WARPATH After The AP Release His Wife’s Email Address
In a low blow move that wouldn’t surprise anyone that was remotely plugged into the political environment, the utterly one-sided media lap dogs of the Democrats pulled off a move that cements the reason why Americans are disgusted with the institution that should be working for the people instead of a political party.
That email address was sent out Friday, contained within the 29 pages of old AOL emails that were released to the public by the Indianapolis Star. They themselves obtained the emails through an open information request.
The Vice President was furious when he found out… And he and his wife found out the ugly way when emails began to pour into her account, filled with malicious messages
DEMOCRATS DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THE COUNTRY…REVENGE, HARASS, DESTROY BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, LEGAL OR NOT

Trump wiretap charge flummoxes law enforcement officials as FBI head reportedly asks DOJ to reject claim
WHY IS THIS JACKASS STILL HERE?
“How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!” he tweeted.
Trump’s charge also left many in the White House and Justice Department confused and scrambling over the weekend to find any kind of factual backup for the president’s accusations.
Also Sunday, the New York Times reported that FBI Director James Comey asked the Justice Department to publicly reject Trump’s assertion. According to the Times, Comey argued that Trump’s claim falsely implied that the FBI had broken the law. The Justice Department had not issued any such statement as of Sunday evening.

#ObamaGate Is a Lot More than a Hashtag
Forget the usual smokescreen of hyper-partisan blather from Chuck Schumer on “Meet the Press” or the myriad calls for Trump’s head from the usual press suspects and consider the situation: Congressional committees, the FBI, not to mention numerous avid media organizations and who knows who else (NSA? CIA? ASPCA?) have been investigating putative Trump-Russia collusion for some time now and come up with… exactly nothing.
Are they likely to come up with something of significance at this point? Almost certainly not.

Leaks and unnamed sources fuel media’s plan to destroy Trump
To judge by their scattershot approach, the conspirators are fishing for a bombshell. The fallback goal is to inflict death by a thousand cuts.
Already they’ve gotten one scalp and part of another. Gen. Mike Flynn is gone, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions is wounded. Each made a mistake that obscured a larger truth: Somebody in the government has been spying on Trump’s team and giving top secret information to anti-Trump media outlets.

Flashback: First FISA Request on Trump Tower Came After Clinton and AG Lynch Met Privately on Tarmac
Was it coincidence or an indication of things to come?
Snakes on a Plane.
On June 27th of 2016, Bill Clinton met secretly with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
A week later FBI Director James Comey laid out in a press conference the many scandalous activities taken by Hillary Clinton while she was President Obama’s Secretary of State and then he said the famous words:
“Our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
We now know that the meeting between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Lynch occurred at about the same time that the Obama administration filed a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers.
No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continued, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes.
The Obama administration was monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.
