Trump Let’s Loose on NBC Over Erroneous Report, Obliterates Them in One Tweet

Published

President Trump is a man loved by many Americans simply because he’s the kind of a guy who doesn’t take garbage from the left-wing media, holding them accountable for their biased coverage and for their attempts to push propaganda.

The latest example of this comes from a single tweet from the president where he takes NBC News to the woodshed for an erroneous report they made this week concerning his attorney Michael Cohen’s phones being wiretapped.

Trump pulled absolutely no punches, delivering a massive blow to the network for being, in his words, “wrong again.”

The president’s tweet came after NBC News issued a correction to its original report released Thursday. Initially, the outlet reported that Cohen’s phones were wiretapped prior to the FBI raiding his home, office and hotel room last month.

But NBC later said other officials clarified that investigators were only logging phone numbers, but not listening in.

Fox News also confirmed that federal investigators kept a register of phone calls made by Cohen, while not recording those calls. Sources with knowledge of the proceedings told Fox News Thursday afternoon that investigators used what’s known as a pen register, or a dialed number recorder (DNR), on at least one of Cohen’s phones. A pen register records all numbers dialed from a given phone number, as well as the length of each call.

Cohen is currently being investigated as part of a grand jury probe into his business dealings, which includes a hefty payment of $130,000 to porn star Stormy Daniels just weeks prior to the 2016 election.

The cash was allegedly paid as a means of keeping Daniels quiet about having an affair with Trump in the early 2000s.

It’s so refreshing to have a leader in office who doesn’t take any junk from the mainstream media, the vast majority of which is radically left-leaning and willing to do anything to destroy the president.

Perhaps, one day, we will see journalistic integrity make a comeback and news outlets once again care about making sure the public stays informed with the truth.

Diplomats Speak On White House Transcript Of Ukraine Call, Say It Was ‘Substantively Correct’

Published

A pair of career diplomats who were highly involved in the crafting of U.S. policy in Ukraine have given testimony about President Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky which was transcribed and released by the White House, saying it was “substantively correct.” Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: The transcript of the call, which is at the center of the Democrats’ impeachment investigation, shows no explicit quid pro quo between Trump and Zelensky but does show Trump pressuring Zelensky to investigate corruption allegations into 2020 Democratic front-runner Joe Biden. Trump has said the call was “perfect” and decried the impeachment process as “the greatest political witch hunt in history.” During their public hearing on Tuesday, Jennifer Williams, a foreign service aide detailed to Vice President Mike Pence’s office, and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the top Ukraine specialist on the National Security Council, were both asked about the transcript by the House Intelligence Committee. “I didn’t take a word-for-word accounting. When I first saw the publicly released version, it looked substantively correct to me,” Williams said when asked whether the transcript was “complete and accurate.” “I certainly would describe it as substantively correct,” Vindman agreed, adding that it was “correct” and that he called it “very accurate” during his closed-door testimony. https://youtu.be/MEB-s2I205k Kurt Volker, who served as the former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, a former NSC aide, will also be giving testimony during the impeachment inquiry to be held on Tuesday. Despite saying the Trump transcript was “substantively correct,” Vindman spoke with House investigators during his private deposition and alleged the White House omitted some important words and phrases.
