Citing Anonymous Sources, Vanity Fair Pushes More Russia Conspiracy

Published

on

In a piece fraught with a salvo from an anonymous source, Vanity Fair suggested yesterday that Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller is preparing to hand down indictments in his never-ending Russian “collusion” investigation before the midterm elections this November.

“As the Russia investigation races toward a conclusion, however, Trump and his Republican allies are due for a reckoning,” wrote Abigail Tracy. “Mueller is reportedly winding down his obstruction probe—an interview with Trump is likely to be the capstone to that investigation—and moving on to whether there was an underlying crime to cover up.”

Citing anonymous sources who allegedly spoke with Bloomberg, Tracy reported that “Mueller is ‘preparing to accelerate’ his inquiry into whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russian nationals to tilt the outcome of the election.”

“That timeline could prove troublesome for both Mueller and the Republican Party,” she wrote. “If Mueller does, in fact, reach some kind of conclusion this fall, the result could be highly damaging for Republicans in Congress.”

Still conspicuously missing from any story reported by leftist media regarding the Russian “collusion” narrative is any evidence of wrongdoing on the part Trump or his campaign. While the implication is that where there is smoke, there must be fire, Americans have yet to see any fire. But activist journalists on the left continue reporting as if the absence of news is, in itself, news.

At the same time, they have been nearly silent on obvious anti-Trump bias at the FBI, the highest law enforcement agency in the land, which vowed to stop Trump from becoming president in the first place.

It is clear that Tracy herself believes there was a wide-ranging effort by the Russians to spread disinformation and meddle in America’s latest presidential election.

“A number of Obama officials I spoke with were quick to admit that they missed the Russia disinfo threat,” she said in April. “‘I’d be a liar if I told you I thought that the U.S. would be next,’ one said. Under Trump, there is a fear the same mistake will be repeated in 2018.”

It is also clear that Tracy views the Trump administration as either incompetent or hostile.

“Yesterday, Pompeo said Trump will warn Putin it is ‘completely unacceptable’ to meddle in our elections,” Tracy tweeted. “I’m not sold on it.”

When Mueller’s investigation will end – if ever – is still unknown. Not to worry, though. There is enough speculation to last a lifetime.

Sebastian Gorka Blasts Trey Gowdy as ‘Grandstanding Fake’

Published

on

A national security strategist and former strategist for President Donald J. Trump blasted Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) over Gowdy’s statements to the media regarding Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland tomorrow.

“This why I can’t take Gowdy seriously,” Gorka tweeted. “The ‘great prosecutor’ had Hillary testify on Benghazi & with what result? ZIP. Now his advice 2 [President Trump] is ask former KGB colonel Putin where he can “pick up” his GRU colleagues? What a grandstanding FAKE.”

Gorka has a point. Gowdy, once known for his sharp tongue and pointed questions during the House Select Committee on Benghazi hearings, has accomplished little in his time as a Congressman.

“I would ask the president to give some serious consideration, your first request of Vladimir Putin needs to be, ‘Tell us which airport we can pick up the 25 Russians that tried to interfere with the fundamentals of our democracy,'” Gowdy told Margaret Brennan on “Face the Nation” on Sunday.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein indicted 12 Russians on Friday over alleged “hacking” of the DNC during the 2016 campaign cycle.

But the fact remains: More than 700 days have passed since the “Russian collusion” narrative was first injected into the mainstream, and not one iota of evidence exists suggesting that Trump had anything to do with Russian meddling in the election.

Still, Gowdy wants to talk tough.

“If you really claim that you had nothing to do with it, then you should be as shocked as we were that your military being used to impact our election, tell us where your going to extradite those folks because an American grand jury indicted them for undermining our democracy.”

Of course, none of that has been proven either. An indictment is not an indication of guilt. And lest we forget, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller actually indicted a Russian company that does not exist as part of his partisan witch hunt.

Yet Gowdy, a prosecutor who should indeed be a bit skeptical, seems to be taking Mueller at his word and inferring guilt from an indictment.

Gowdy talked tough at the open hearing of disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok last week regarding pre-election bias in the nation’s highest law enforcement agency. Still, frustrated Americans have nothing to show for it.

He let Lisa Page, Strzok’s lover and confidante, also a disgraced FBI agent, ignore a congressional subpoena to appear before Congress on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, former Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton never faced any consequences for perjuring herself on live television during the very Benghazi hearings over which Gowdy presided, and has never been seriously investigated for any of the myriad of other misdeeds related to her scam charity, The Clinton Global Initiative.

Just another day in the swamp.
