Eyewitnesses Deny The Alleged Attempted Kiss Reported By WaPo, Which Covered Up Fairfax Allegation

Published

on

President Donald Trump did not attempt to kiss a campaign staffer, according to two eyewitnesses of the possible handshake reported on by the Washington Post.

The claim comes from a 43-year old woman named Alva Johnson, who alleges that the attempted kiss happened before a Florida rally. Johnson said that she turned her face, exposing her cheek, and that the alleged kiss “landed on the corner of her mouth,” according to the Beltway newspaper.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders strongly denies the claim.

Big League Politics reported:

Less than a week after learning that Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post refused to run the story of Dr. Vanessa Tyson who accused Democratic Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of Virginia of sexual assault stemming from an incident at the 2004 Democratic National Committee, the paper confirmed to Big League Politics some of the editors who were behind the decision to quash to the story.

“Specifically, it was the ranking editors in the newsroom who made the decision,” WaPo’s Vice President of Communications Kris Coratti told BLP via email. “Peter, it was a unanimous decision among the entire group of ranking editors not to publish the story because it didn’t meet our standards.”

Friday, we reported that WaPo columnist Theresa Vargas made the decision to spike the story, which was relayed to us by WaPo reporter Fenit Nirappil on a phone call. BLP has audio of the admission. Despite that, Coratti claimed the story was untrue, and demanded a correction.

When pressed, Coratti confirmed that editors Tracy Grant, Martin Baron, Cameron Barr, and Emilio Garcia-Ruiz were involved in the decision to quash the rape allegation story. She also confirmed that there were “many” other editors involved in the decision.

The official explanation from The Post is that the Fairfax sexual assault allegation story did not meet its editorial standards because the sexual assault allegations against Fairfax were not corroborated. But just four days after BLP broke the story of the sexual assault allegations, The New York Times was able to find five corroborating witnesses, all of whom Tyson told about the alleged sexual assault.

Compare that to the story of sexual misconduct allegations made by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh – a story which The Post gleefully published.

Executive Editor Marty Baron explained the decision to publish that story in a statement:

“Our reporting on Dr. Blasey Ford documented that in 2012 she told others of the alleged incident. Her husband learned of it during a couples therapy session, and he said he was told the name of Brett Kavanaugh at that time. Moreover, notes from therapy sessions that we reviewed showed that Dr. Blasey Ford spoke of a sexual assault by students “from an elitist boys’ school.” With that corroborating evidence, we proceeded to publish her account because it met our standards for publication.”

The allegations against Kavanaugh are far thinner, far less detailed, and do not possess nearly the level of corroboration as the sexual assault allegations against Fairfax. Remember, Blasey Ford could not remember the date, time, or place of Kavanaugh’s alleged misconduct. Tyson provided a detailed account of all of that information, and told her story to at least five people who confirmed to The Times that they had heard the story of Fairfax’s alleged sexual assault.

Still, Blasey Ford’s story was published, and Tyson’s was not.

Roger Stone Breaks Silence Big League Politics

The story is developing. 

On July 10, 2020, commentator John Cardillo reported that conservative operative Roger Stone received a commutation of his prison sentence from President Donald Trump.

Cardillo tweeted, “BREAKING:@realDonaldTrumpJust commuted #RogerStone’s sentence.”

Over the past few days, President Trump has considered commuting Roger Stone’s sentence a few days prior to his report to prison.

Stone is expected to report to a federal prison in Jesup, Georgia by July 14  where he will serve out a three year and four month prison sentence for allegedly lying under oath to U.S. elected officials during the politically contrived Russian interference investigation.

Trump has had a relationship with the Republican political operative for decades.

For some time, Trump has discussed the potential of commuting Stone’s sentence.

When asked by reporters earlier on July 10 about reports of his plan to pardon Stone, Trump remarked, “I’ll be looking at it. I think Roger Stone was very unfairly treated, as were many people.”

Reuters reported that back in November 2019, a “Washington jury convicted Stone on all seven criminal counts of obstruction of a congressional investigation, five counts of making false statements to Congress and tampering with a witness.”

The same report added that “Stone was convicted for lying to the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee about his attempts to contact WikiLeaks, the website that released damaging emails about Trump’s 2016 Democratic election rival Hillary Clinton that U.S. intelligence officials have concluded were stolen by Russian hackers.”

Stone’s commutation, while not a full-blown pardon that erases his conviction, is a solid victory for the Rule of Law.
