Imagine that a court brief from a well-respected federal prosecutor reveals the following:
Senator John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign paid a pro-GOP law firm to hire technical experts to hack into Democratic opponent Barack Obama’s computer servers at his home, office and campaign headquarters. They looked for evidence that Obama was born in Kenya and therefore disqualified for the presidency.
Once Obama was sworn in as president, McCain’s hacking operation accelerated. All of the Arizona senator’s men have broken into Obama’s computers, this time inside the White House.
When they found no evidence of Obama’s alleged Kenyan birth, they started Kenyagate anyway. McCain and other Republicans said the candidate who defeated them bowed to Nairobi rather than Washington.
Rather than challenge Obamacare, the Paris Accord on global warming, and the Iran nuclear deal on their merits, the GOP weaponized its Kenyagate fabrication and hounded Obama nonstop for three long years. If Obama turned out to be from East Africa, then hallelujah, Republicans said. If not, these false accusations would crush Obama, overwhelm his program and sink him in the polls.
Had a prosecutor’s court filing revealed this vast right-wing conspiracy, the resulting media coverage would have been wall-to-wall. Breathless anchors and impatient political analysts would have pondered every microscopic detail. Their barely contained rage would have smothered every smartphone, laptop, and 60-inch HDTV between Pacific Heights and Atlantic City.
But this hypothetical scenario did not happen.
In fact, highly regarded Justice Department special counsel John Durham submitted legal documents on February 11 accusing Hillary Clinton’s campaign and pro-Hillary lawyers of hiring technicians to hack into the computer servers of Donald Trump, his residence and presidential campaign offices.
They did so, Durham wrote, to “establish ‘inference’ and ‘narrative’ linking then-candidate Trump to Russia”, and “for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump. “.
When such evidence did not emerge, the Hillary team shouted about it anyway. What good is a lie if everyone doesn’t hear it?
“IT scientists have discovered a secret server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank,” Hillary’s chief foreign policy adviser Jake Sullivan said on October 21, 2016. “This secret hotline could be the key to unraveling the mystery of Trump. ties with Russia.
Sullivan was as transparent as tar. He omitted to reveal that Hillary Clinton funded these “computer scientists”.
The Duchess of Chappaqua made this Big Lie even bigger.
“It’s time for Trump to answer some serious questions about his ties to Russia,” Clinton said via Twitter on Halloween.
Rather than admit she suffered one of the most gargantuan upsets in political history, Hillary and her team hacked even harder. According to Durham, they continued to extract dirt from Trump’s computers.
Worse still, after his inauguration, the Hillary team scoured President Trump’s computer servers, to the White House. This from the same crowd screaming that Republicans are endangering democracy.
While Fox News Channel and other pro-conservative outlets followed the story, the regime media acted as bodyguards protecting a potentate amid heated topics. Rather than attacking this story, they simply pretend it doesn’t exist.
“So far, nothing on the ABC, CBS and NBC Sunday morning interview shows; Sunday night, Monday morning (“Good Morning America” from ABC, “CBS Mornings” and “Today” from NBC) newscasts, or Monday night and Tuesday morning shows, I was told Media Research Center Vice President Brent Baker. “Asterisk: No ‘Sunday Today’ or ‘Meet the Press’ due to the Olympics. »
ABC News and CBS News found time to discuss an exuberant passenger on an LA-DC flight. NBC News aired a story about billionaire Jared Isaacman’s return to space.
“This revelation doesn’t fit the story of Russian collusion that reporters have spent five years pushing,” Baker said. “So they have no interest in the embarrassment that would inevitably come from giving Durham discoveries time.”
The “mainstream” media cover-up of Hillary’s hackers has been virtually transparent. It would make George Orwell, the father of the memory lapse, cry.
