Rand Paul Wants To Know Ms. Haspel’s involvement or coordination in possible surveillance of then-candidate Trump

This gets deeper than we imagined.

The new CIA director, Gina Haspel, was the London station chief for the CIA in 2016, a busy year and location for undermining a future president.

Senator Rand Paul asked Gina Haspel questions about the Steele dossier—about her and the CIA’s knowledge of the dossier.

His questions, at first, were about whether the CIA put candidate Donald Trump under surveillance.

As the process continued, however, Senator Paul moved on to questions about the Steele Dossier.

Cassandra Fairbanks writes at the Gateway Pundit, “EXCLUSIVE: Gina Haspel Refuses to Answer Senator Rand Paul’s Questions About CIA Involvement in Steele Dossier.

Senator Paul’s initial letter focused on the practices of the CIA during the 2016 presidential election. They heavily imply that the senator believes that the CIA was involved with the dossier that launched the Russian collusion investigation. Though the agency may not have been the one running the operation, Haspel is an acolyte of former CIA Director John Brennan — a fierce opponent of President Trump who, according to new reports, worked claims from the unverified dossier into then-President Barack Obama’s Presidential Daily Brief.

She answered some of Paul’s question, and seemed to evade others. When asked, she clarified, but she did not address many or Rand Paul’s eight subsequent questions.

“With regard to the current questions raised in your letter regarding Christopher Steele: for Question 3, I was not personally aware of Mr. Steele’s efforts when it was publicly reported in the press,” Haspel continued.

She added that, “As you know, this matter is currently under review by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) as part of their investigation into Russian active measures in the 2016 election — CIA is supporting those efforts. Additionally, many of your question relate to matters that fall within the jurisdiction of the FBI not CIA. I would refer you to SSCI for any additional questions you may have on this issue.”

Haspel did not answer any of the other questions posed by Senator Paul, including if the CIA aware of the efforts of Christopher Steele to collect information on the Trump campaign prior to Election Day or if the CIA received information from Steele’s investigation.

Senator Paul responded with one additional question, but has not yet received a response. He asked, via email, if the CIA received any information from British intelligence about Donald Trump, his campaign, or campaign associates.”

Though Haspel has been confirmed, it does not mean that she cannot be fired if she is found to have been lying in her responses to Senator Paul. If she was working with James Comey, she could and should receive the same fate. The CIA Director serves at the pleasure of the president.

New Video Posted By President Trump Proves He’s Denounced White Supremacy Over And Over Again

Published

on

President Trump released a video Tuesday that completely annihilates the left-wing narrative promoted in the mainstream media that he is a racist who supports and promotes white supremacy. Many folks in the MSM have made the accusation that the president has not condemned white supremacy, but this video showcases all of the times he’s done just that. Here’s more on the video from the Daily Wire: “The Trump campaign rolled out a nearly 5-minute-long video of the president, featuring video clips from as recently as this month, to his 2016 presidential campaign, and dating all the way back to an interview Trump gave to Matt Lauer in the early 2000s, where he denounced White supremacy and ‘disavowed’ White supremacist groups,” Fox News reported. “The video comes after Biden and Harris have criticized Trump, casting him as a racist and claiming he has not denounced White supremacy, and also comes as part of the Trump campaign’s final pitch to win over Black voters ahead of Election Day.” The video actually details 38 examples of when Trump denounced white supremacy. Here’s just a few of the ones covered in the clip.   From recent NBC News townhall: “I denounce white supremacy, okay?” From recent NBC News townhall: “Are you listening? I denounce white supremacy. What’s your next question?” From recent NBC News townhall: “I denounce white supremacy.” From recent NBC News townhall: “You start off with white supremacy, I denounce it.” https://youtu.be/Bd0cMmBvqWc Folks, the mainstream media is never going to ditch their anti-Trump racist narrative, regardless of how false it actually is. They believe this is one of their strongest strategies against the president and have worked hard, investing much time and energy, into covering this narrative and brainwashing their viewing audience with it. But it’s not true. Clearly, the president is…

Tony Bobulinski Makes Explosive Claims On Tucker Carlson’s Show, Media Skips Story

Published

on

Critics are having a hard time wrapping their minds around the fact that the mainstream media is choosing to ignore the Tucker Carlson interview with Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden, who stated that the Biden family casually shrugged off any worries that Joe Biden’s ties to all of his son’s business deals might have a negative impact on future presidential campaigns. This, of course, raises questions as to whether or not the MSM is worthy of public trust. Given the kind of anti-Trump coverage we’ve seen over the last few years, and the total destruction of journalistic integrity and ethics, the answer to that question should easily be “no.” via Fox News: Bobulinski’s comments to Carlson were completely ignored by CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and Washington Post as of 8 a.m. EST on Wednesday, exactly 12 hours after the start of the damning interview. “It is pretty much a 100 percent blackout of the Bobulinski story in the traditional media. Of course, there are lots of stories that need to be covered in the busy 2020 news agenda, but the total omission of Bobulinski’s accusations is curious, to say the least,” DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News. “Even if this story is not front and center on the news agenda, it does need to be approached somewhere along the way. Odds are that most mainstream media outlets are devoting very few reporting resources, if any, to the Bobulinski story,” McCall added. “It would seem those outlets could at least be investigating the accusations to try to prove them invalid.” “What little coverage has surfaced has basically just been running without challenge the boilerplate denials and indignation from the Biden camp. The manner in which this story has been covered…
