Donald Trump was exonerated once and for all when Attorney General Bill Barr made it clear there was zero collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Barack Obama, on the other hand, won’t come out completely unscathed.
And this is coming from CNN – a vehement defender of 44 and his legacy.
Check this out…
The partisan warfare over the Mueller report will rage, but one thing cannot be denied: Former President Barack Obama looks just plain bad. On his watch, the Russians meddled in our democracy while his administration did nothing about it.
The Mueller report flatly states that Russia began interfering in American democracy in 2014. Over the next couple of years, the effort blossomed into a robust attempt to interfere in our 2016 presidential election. The Obama administration knew this was going on and yet did nothing. In 2016, Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice told her staff to “stand down” and “knock it off” as they drew up plans to “strike back” against the Russians, according to an account from Michael Isikoff and David Corn in their book “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump”.Advertisement - story continues below
Why did Obama go soft on Russia? My opinion is that it was because he was singularly focused on the nuclear deal with Iran. Obama wanted Putin in the deal, and to stand up to him on election interference would have, in Obama’s estimation, upset that negotiation. This turned out to be a disastrous policy decision.
While speaking with White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, CNN’s Jake Tapper literally said his network made no errors when it came to reporting on alleged Russia collusion.
That’s like Stacey Abrams saying she is the rightfully elected governor of Georgia.
It’s not true.
Why Tapper feels this way is slightly befuddling, but then again, he does work for CNN.
From Daily Caller:
Jake Tapper said Sunday that CNN has not gotten “anything” wrong during the course of reporting on Russiagate, even though his network has bungled numerous stories over the past two years.
Tapper noted, “I’m not sure what you’re saying the media got wrong. The media reported the investigation was going on. Other than the people in the media on the left, not on this network, I don’t know anybody that got anything wrong.“
He added, “We didn’t say there was a conspiracy. We said Mueller was investigating a conspiracy.“
Mulvaney chimed in, “That’s fine, if that’s your recollection of history, that’s great. Face it, the media got this wrong. It’s okay. People get stuff wrong all the time, just not at this level.“
Hmmm. Might Tapper be attempting to cover for CNN, considering how truly dreadful the network is toward President Trump?
What can you do?
