Since the House Intelligence Committee, chaired by Congressman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), voted on Monday to release a memo detailing alleged misconduct and legal abuses by the FBI, the three major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) have been acting like the mouthpiece for the Democratic Party. Between January 29, when the vote was held, and February 1, the networks dedicated roughly three and a half times the coverage to worries about releasing the memo than the allegations against the FBI than its purported contents.
Twitter's #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag, referring to the four-page memo which allegedly contains evidence of extensive "abuse in ... surveillance practices" at the FBI and Department of Justice, has gotten on Beltway Democrats' nerves. An attempt to pass off Americans' interest in having it released as a campaign led by Russian bots appears to have blown up in their faces, because two of their leaders believed a bogus report from the far-left media fever swamp.
In a Thursday interview with Wolf Blitzer, Democrat Adam Schiff inanely wondered why only anti-Donald Trump texts and no anti-Hillary Clinton texts from Robert Mueller's partisan Democrat-dominated investigative team have been presented to Congress. Naturally, Schiff engaged in this pathetic misdirection on CNN, where he was confident he wouldn't be challenged — and he wasn't.
On Sunday evening, ABC's World News Tonight and the NBC Nightly News both reacted to Vice President Mike Pence walking out of an NFL game in Indianapolis by dismissing his reaction as a "stunt," with ABC fretting that he was "reigniting the fury." It did not seem to occur to either network that, when several of the '49ers players sparked the move by kneeling during the National Anthem, this display could also be called a "stunt."
Just when you think you’ve heard it all, you’re shown otherwise. During Thursday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews compared the Russian-backed social media trolls during the 2016 election to the 9/11 hijackers who murdered thousands of Americans in New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
Remember when the folks in the mainstream media almost universally mocked President Donald Trump's claim that Trump Tower had been wiretapped? With the recent news that Paul Manafort, who lived and worked in Trump Tower, was wiretapped that charge sure sounds a lot less laughable. Among those treating Trump's claim about Trump Tower being wiretapped more seriously is CBS's John Dickerson who asked Congressman Adam Schiff on today's Face the Nation if Trump was right on this matter.
Of course, Schiff denied that Trump was right but Dickerson seemed to have a lot more respect for that claim. As you shall see, Schiff also continues to appear to be going nowhere in the supposed Trump-Russia collusion investigation since he is actually giving credit to the "Golden Showers" dossier and making a big deal of Russia's relatively minor ad buy on Facebook during the election.
Dude, who stole my Trump-Russia collusion investigation? Ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, appeared on CNN's State Of The Union today with host Jake Tapper and the interview was much more notable for what was not asked than what was discussed. And what was not asked was anything about Schiff's Trump-Russia collusion investigation. The very absence of this topic screamed loudly since almost everybody now aware of Schiff know him solely because of his role in the investigation to nowhere.
The Washington Free Beacon’s video editor and 2016 Noel Sheppard Media Blogger of the Year Award recipient David Rutz published on Monday afternoon a study put out by the Trump White House, showing how camera-loving Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff (Calif.) has spent over 14 hours on cable and network TV since President Trump’s inauguration.
On Sunday, Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for President Trump, appeared on ABC’s This Week to discuss the latest developments in the Russia story, particularly those involving the President’s son and son-in-law. Towards the end of the interview, Jon Karl pressed Sekulow about the concerns of presidential pardons, citing the worries of Senate Democrat Mark Warner. But no matter how many times Sekulow explained that he didn’t know the President’s position on the question, Karl kept insisting he was saying Trump was seriously thinking about it.
The frenzied liberal journalists at ABC, CBS and NBC on Wednesday smelled blood in the water. They threw around the “I-word,” “impeachment” and “impeachable offenses” for Donald Trump. Rather than waiting for actual memos to appear or for evidence unrelated to anonymous sourcing, former Bill Clinton operative and Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos excitedly wondered, “The big question, did President Trump try to block the FBI's Russia investigation [and] commit an impeachable offense?”
House Intelligence Committee ranking member, California Rep. Adam Schiff, was the political guest on the May 12 episode of Netflix’s Chelsea, titled “Answer Me This.” Schiff serves as the House Select Intelligence Committee co-chair in the investigation of President Trump’s possible ties to Russia. While discussing the reasons given for the dismissal of F.B.I. Director James Comey, Schiff said, “It just doesn’t pass the smell test.”
The liberal media was overjoyed Thursday, by the fact that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was recusing himself from his committee’s Russian influence investigation after he discussed evidence with the press. The media weren’t so keen on similar calls for the ranking Democrat on the Committee, Adam Schiff to do the same after he opened up to the press about what evidence he had seen. During ABC’s This Week, moderator George Stephanopoulos teed-up Schiff to combat those demands.
