Ep. 976 Why Is This Republican Attacking Trump?

In this episode I address the incredibly suspicious texts between FBI personnel who appear to be attempting to insert a spy into the Trump White House. I also address the unbelievable attack on Don Trump Jr. by a sell out Republican Senator. Finally, I address liberal myths about the midterm elections and voter ID.

NBC News Shows Conveniently Ignore Exclusive Report Vindicating Trump

Yesterday’s NBC Nightly News show and this morning’s Today Show both conveniently ignored the network’s own exclusive report that vindicates President Trump, according to Newsbusters.

The report, from NBC News intelligence and national security reporter Ken Dilanian, describes how the Senate Intelligence Committee hasn’t found any evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. It was first reported yesterday morning on MSNBC Live.

The report cites Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.), who said last week that the committee doesn’t have “anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia.”

And–much to the chagrin of liberals everywhere–the NBC story notes, “Democrats don’t dispute” Burr’s characterization.

Newsbusters writes: “Instead of reporting on their massive breaking news story that drove a flood of reporting by other outlets, NBC Nightly News and anchor Lester Holt chose to hype DNA tests for dogs. [UPDATE: NBC skipped its own reporting again on Today.]”

NBC wasn’t the only network to skip out on the breaking story. Yesterday’s ABC’s World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News also ignored the story.

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos did report on the story this morning, however, and was quite eager to point out that Democratic Senate Intelligence Committee member Sen. Mark Warner (VA) has come out and stated that he “respectfully disagrees” with the report.

As Newsbusters reminds us, the big 3 network’s response to the Senate findings isn’t much different from their reporting on the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia:

“On March 12, 2018, a similar investigation by the House Intelligence Committee was ended because they too could find no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. In that case, ABC and CBS gave a combined total of less than one minute (58 seconds) to those findings. NBC seems opposed to reporting any news on the Russia investigation that could vindicate Trump because they also ignored the House Intel Committee findings.”

Senate Dems Finally Forced to Admit There’s No Evidence of Russia Collusion

A report by NBC News reveals that Senate Democrats are finally admitting that their beloved Russia collusion narrative has crumbled.

The report cites comments made last week by Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.), who told CBS News that their investigation found no evidence of collusion.

“If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don’t have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia,” he said.

He continued, “If I can finish tomorrow, I would finish tomorrow. We know we’re getting to the bottom of the barrel because there’re not new questions that we’re searching for answers to.”

NBC spoke with Democratic Senate investigators on condition of anonymity and the outlet reports that they “did not dispute Burr’s characterizations” to CBS.

“We were never going to find a contract signed in blood saying, ‘Hey Vlad, we’re going to collude,'” one Democratic aide told NBC.

Democrats plan on releasing a report on their investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia which they say will take six or seven months to write.

They promised NBC that the report wouldn’t be “good for Trump,” however, the piece notes that the investigators made one thing clear: they’ve found ZERO proof that the president “formed a corrupt pact with Russia to offer sanctions relief or other favorable treatment in return for Russian help in the election.”

Senate Intel Chair: Our Investigation has found NO Evidence of Russia Collusion

Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said his investigation has found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The Intelligence Committee has been investigating the allegations of collusion for over two years, and Burr told CBS News, “If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don’t have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia.”

He continued, “If I can finish tomorrow, I would finish tomorrow. We know we’re getting to the bottom of the barrel because there’re not new questions that we’re searching for answers to.”

The Daily Caller reports:

“The Senate panel has conducted more than 200 witness interviews and reviewed hundreds of thousands of documents as part of an investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The investigation, which has focused heavily on the collusion question, began in January 2017, alongside a parallel probe run out of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.”

Burr told Fox News in September that his committee had not seen any “hard evidence” of collusion, however, his most recent remarks to CBS are “his strongest comments to date on the topic,” states the Daily Caller.
