Reporters Who Put Together Smear Story On Kavanaugh Say NY Times Cut Exculpatory Info From Initial Report

The plot thickens.

The reporters who put together the smear story against Justice Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend that allegedly detailed yet another sexual assault claim against him, have said that the publication cut the exculpatory information from their initial report before publishing.

If this is indeed accurate, then that means, without a shadow of a doubt, the Times purposefully removed the information in order to craft a narrative that painted Kavanaugh as guilty so they could potentially play a role in his impeachment.

Trending: Report: Schiff Pressured Witness to Say Trump Applied Pressure On Ukraine to Investigate Biden

Reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly told MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell their editors were responsible for the significant factual omission.

“In your draft of the article, did it include those words that have since been added to the article?” O’Donnell asked.

“It did,” the reporters responded.

Pogrebin then explained the editors cut the alleged victim’s name from the story per the newspaper’s internal guidelines. But that does not explain why the key detail — that the alleged victim does not remember the incident — was also cut.

“So I think in this case the editors felt like it was maybe probably better to remove [the alleged victim’s name], and in removing her name, they removed the other reference to the fact that she didn’t remember [the alleged incident],” Progrebin said.

The article itself was adapted from a book the two reporters wrote about the whole Kavanaugh ordeal. The controversy with the article started when Mollie Hemingway, a writer for The Federalist, got an advanced copy of the book and highlighted the omission on her social media accounts.

The Times was later forced to correct the story and add the exculpatory information into the article, which essentially destroyed the narrative they tried to put together.

Yet, despite all of this information, the reporters themselves have still not stopped pushing this narrative.

This just goes to show you how dedicated the left is to destroying conservatives, especially ones put in positions of power that have a direct influence on the culture we have at large. It’s sad to think that these folks are this dedicated to destroying everything wonderful our nation stands for, but that’s the left for you.

Kavanaugh has had his reputation destroyed by unfounded claims for several years now, no doubt putting a ton of strain on his family. The left has proven they’re willing to fight dirty, so how we respond to that without selling ourselves out morally is something we as conservatives have to keep wrestling with.

Kevin McCarthy Says Top Dems Who Walked Out Of White House Meeting Are ‘Infatuated’ With Impeaching Trump

Published

on

Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the top member of the GOP in the House of Representatives, told his side of the story about the now infamous meeting that took place in the White House that featured House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, and Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer all walking out the door in the middle of things. According to McCarthy, the reason for their departure is because they are “infatuated” with the idea of impeaching President Trump. Pelosi recently launched an impeachment inquiry into the president not that long ago over a phone call he made to Ukraine concerning possibly shady business dealings involving Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Check out what McCarthy had to say via Fox News: “They left the meeting, other Democrats stayed and we had the most normal meeting you could ever have that was productive with the general of the joint chiefs, the secretary of defense and the president talking about how do we keep the homeland safe,” he said. “The president starts out and he provides the letter he sent to the president of Turkey, Erdogan,” he continued, claiming Pelosi did not look at it when it came to her turn and instead put it face down on the table. “I have served with six presidents,” the Maryland lawmaker said in a clip played by host Laura Ingraham. “Never… have I seen a president treat so disrespectfully a coequal branch of the government of the United States.” “These people are infatuated — they are fixated on impeaching this president instead of worrying about fixing our problems,” he said. McCarthy went on to say, “Who is the leader? The person who stayed in the room and had a discussion. The people who left the…

Sources Claim Turkish President Erdogan Tossed Trump Letter In The Garbage

Published

on

Sources are claiming that Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan wasn’t too thrilled about the letter he received from President Trump that warned him not to take action along the Syrian border and tossed the letter in the trash. These same sources, who are close to Erdogan, confirmed with the BBC on Thursday that he “thoroughly rejected” the president’s letter, in which Trump threatened to annihilate Turkey’s economy if he decided to go forward with military action in Syria following Trump’s announcement several days prior to pull troops from the northeast of Syria. Here’s more from Fox News: Erdogan reportedly took the letter warning against being a “fool” and tossed it “in the bin,” the sources said. The letter, first obtained by Fox Business Network, came the same day Erdogan launched a Turkish military offensive into Syria, claiming it wanted to “neutralize terror threats” and establish a “safe zone.” Turkish forces last Wednesday carried out airstrikes and later announced ground troops had invaded northeastern Syria. Nearly all U.S. troops there have been removed and will be redeployed in the region in the coming weeks, something critics said was the “green light” for Erdogan to act. Here’s the letter Trump sent to Erdogan via Trish Regan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/trish_regan/status/1184559361638748161 Trump took a lot of criticism for his decision to remove troops from Syria, with many folks saying that this move was basically granting permission for Erdogan and Turkish forces to waltz into Syria and attack our Kurdish allies, essentially leaving our “friends” hanging. The president has since defended his actions saying the move to pull troops was not a “green light” for the attack on the Kurds.
