New York Times Lies to Cover for Reporter Who Allegedly Broke into Senate Candidate Staffer’s Home
The New York Times is blatantly lying in an effort to cover for a reporter who allegedly broke into the apartment of a staffer for Corey Stewart, a GOP candidate for U.S. Senate from Virginia.
“Ms. Saul went to an address for Landrum Associates in Woodbridge looking for Mr. Landrum. She was told by a woman who opened the door that he was not present. She left a note with the woman for Mr. Landrum asking him to call. At no time did she enter the premises,” a New York Times spokeswoman told NBC Washington, regarding the alleged break-in by reporter Stephanie Saul.
But according to Stewart’s staffer Brian Landrum, that account cannot be true. The apartment itself does not have street access. It is located inside a building which is secure. At the very least, Saul broke into the building.
“Access by non-residents must be approved by other resident or management staff,” Landrum told Big League Politics. “Management stated to me that they didn’t let her in. I had no prior contact with Stephanie Saul – no calls, no texts, no emails. According to the office she entered the building twice that way.”
Landrum said that he has filed a police report, which will be made available to him and the public in a matter of days. A detective and police officer came to his apartment to take statements and collect evidence.
“I did file a police report on Thursday,” he said. “That’s when sworn statements of myself and my guest were taken. The police report has already been compiled.”
Landrum’s guest confirmed that she came face-to-face with Saul during the break-in, inside of Landrum’s apartment.
Following her conversations with police, Amber Fincham provided Big League Politics with the following account, describing how Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter Stephanie Saul entered Landrum’s apartment without permission or notice.
“I was staying at Brian’s apartment in Woodbridge on Wednesday afternoon. I took a shower and was doing my makeup and listening to music. At about 2:15pm I was walking out of the bathroom and heard a noise over the music,” Fincham recalls.
“I turned off the music and turned around and a woman I didn’t know was in the kitchen walking to the door. I said hello? She said hello and said she was looking for Brian and asked if he was home. I said he was at work and she asked me when he was coming home and I told her 8:00. She had a note pad and wrote a note and tore it off and left it with me to give to Brian that had her name and phone number. After she left I called Brian and told him what happened. He said he didn’t know a Stephanie and asked me to send him a picture of the note which I did,” Fincham continues.
