Mark Hemingway at Real Clear Politics offered a tough critique of Washington Post reporters Isaac Stanley-Becker and Tony Romm for their article headlined “Conservatives spread false claims on Twitter about electoral fraud as Iowans prepare to caucus.” This came before the caucus debacle.
Two conservative outlets have complained that their livestreams of the Senate impeachment trial have been taken down—for no apparent reason. Judicial Watch’s president, Tom Fitton, noted that the organization’s livestream of the impeachment trial was halted mid-stream. YouTube claimed that the stream was “violating ‘community standards,’” according to Fitton’s Jan. 21 tweet. While the stream still remains on Judicial Watch’s feed, it was not allowed to continue.
So as I sat in a television studio in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania ready to beam in on Thursday night’s Sean Hannity show, I checked my notes. The topic was to be the media and President Trump’s visit to El Paso. The format was, first, a Hannity monologue, then the segue to the opening El Paso segment, where I would be paired with Dr. Sebastian Gorka, the former Trump White House aide and now host of The Sebastian Gorka Show. In the world of cable news, completely normal.
Last week, federal Judge Royce Lamberth ordered the State Department and the Justice Department to hand over information related to the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation. The decision was a victory for Judicial Watch, who has requested the information via a Freedom of Information Act request.
There is a determined disinformation campaign by the establishment press contending — in the face of admitted evidence to the contrary — that Barack Obama's FBI didn't spy on Donald Trump's presidential campaign in 2016. Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at The Federalist, appeared Thursday on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show to debunk that nonsense.
In an official statement on Friday, the Department of Justice announced the indictment of former Maryland executive Mark Lambert on “11 counts related to foreign bribery, fraud and money laundering scheme.” The indictment effectively tied Lambert to the Uranium One scandal because his alleged illicit activity involved JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), an arm of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation which now owns both TENEX and Uranium One. Despite the importance of the new indictment, the major three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) had been dead silent.
Thursday’s New York Times provided a long, unfriendly article by Jonathan Mahler on the government watchdog group Judicial Watch, under a dismissive headline: “Group’s Path on Clinton: Sue Early and Often – Judicial Watch Is a Foil That Won’t Quit.” The nonprofit legal group is doing the investigative legwork on Hillary Clinton that the liberal media won’t do, and the media won’t forgive them for it: "
Judicial Watch was one of the Clintons’ original tormentors, a charter member of what Mrs. Clinton famously called a 'vast right-wing conspiracy' to destroy her and her husband by seizing on any potential scandal. The organization filed its first lawsuit against the Clintons shortly after its formation in 1994, and it pretty much never stopped."
It is not a theory that delegating the protection of our embassy and military personnel to other countries risks lives. It is a reality bathed in American blood. The latest reports on Benghazi released this week underscore the persistent dangers of outsourcing security.
Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton appeared on the Fox News Channel (FNC) Monday afternoon and informed viewers that a Department of Justice (DOJ) attorney admitted to his organization on Friday that the e-mails belonging to former IRS official Lois Lerner that were thought to be lost likely still exist. He declared to FNC’s Shannon Bream that the story of Lerner’s hard drive being damaged and destroyed and thus her e-mails were permanently lost has “all been a pack of malarkey” and “a big lie.”
When it came to the major broadcast networks covering this huge story on their Monday evening newscasts, there was no coverage to be found as ABC, CBS, and NBC all carried out the latest censoring of news surrounding the IRS. [MP3 audio here; Video below]
The latest bombshell in the IRS scandal has landed. On Monday, Judicial Watch’s president Tom Fitton told FNC’s Shannon Bream that a Justice Department attorney told them the missing Lois Lerner e-mails do exist.
Appearing on FNC’s The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson, Fitton announced: “A Department of Justice attorney told a Judicial Watch attorney on Friday that it turns out the federal government backs up all computer records in case something terrible happens in Washington and there is a catastrophe....So everything we’ve been hearing about scratched hard drives, about missing e-mails of Lois Lerner, other IRS officials, other officials in the Obama administration, it’s all been a pack of malarkey.” (video after the jump)
