U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted this gem yesterday: “DOJ’s criminal charges provide hard evidence that Russian intel agents attacked America to boost their favorite candidates, undermine others, and influence our elections. @realDonaldTrump, cancel your ridiculous Putin summit and get your butt on a plane back to the United States.”
Of course Liz conveniently forgets her CNN interview with Jake Tapper last November in which she said the DNC rigged the primary against Bernie Sanders.
She forgets the arrangement former DNC acting Chair Donna Brazile outlined in her book recounting the 2016 election, saying the DNC allowed the Clinton campaign to commandeer its finances, giving its preferred candidate control of the party long before Democrat voters chose their nominee.
Didn’t that undermine a legitimate presidential candidate — Bernie Sanders — and unfairly influence an election?
Of course it did but hypocritical liberals would rather keep screaming Russia, Russia, Russia and keep an unproven “collusion” narrative alive in an effort to derail the Trump administration instead of shining a spotlight on its own corrupt practices.
In an effort to distract from the damning Peter Strzok congressional testimony Thursday, the DOJ announced a dozen indictments of Russian nationals they say hacked into Hillary Clinton’s campaign to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
Before you swallow these new allegations, consider that this is the same DOJ whose FBI under former Director James Comey’s watch didn’t bother to obtain the Democratic National Committee’s server and do its own independent forensic analysis.
Instead, it relied on information it got from Crowdstrike, an IT firm on Hillary Clinton’s payroll.
This is also the same FBI that didn’t bother to investigate who paid for the dirty dossier it used to obtain FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. In a shocking April interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier, Comey said he “didn’t know” who funded the dossier.
Forgive me for setting the bar too high but doesn’t the “I” in FBI stand for Investigation?
One would hope America’s top law enforcement agency would investigate such highly relevant information before launching a special counsel against a sitting U.S. president.
The left isn’t interested in any of that. They want to impeach Trump at any cost.
Glass houses be damned.
