Skip to comments.DNC Communications Director: Flynn Unmasking Story Will "Backfire" On Republicans
Posted on 05/13/2020 5:11:45 PM PDT by Sir Napsalot
FNC's Bill Hemmer repeatedly asked DNC Communications Director Xochitl Hinojosa why Joe Biden's name appears on a recently declassified list of Obama administration officials who asked to "unmask" the name of then-incoming National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
XOCHITL HINOJOSA, DNC: First of all, this is a distraction. All you are having Republicans do right now is distract from the fact that they continue to politicize the Justice Department. I'm someone who worked there and I understand the dependence of the justice Department and yet you have thousands of justice Department employees that reacted to the Michael Flynn news and what we want to see is making sure that the independent returns to the Justice Department. Also, unmasking, unmasking is just something that you are looking to see more intelligence. It is not scandalous in any way. Frankly, this is going to backfire on Republicans because it just shows how serious Michael Flynn was and his conversations with the Russians. So republicans can try to use this to play political football. But in reality, this will backfire.
BILL HEMMER: Is it a crime to talk to other countries during that period?
XOCHITL HINOJOSA: Whenever you are trying to interfere in an election, or in any way trying to go against the United States, I think that is something that is... But right now, when it comes to the Justice Department politicizing things, time and time again you continue to see this Justice Department politicize issues in order to help Donald Trump.
BILL HEMMER: The answer there is the suggestion of collusion. There is no proof of that. Where is that?
XOCHITL HINOJOSA: You continue to see this Justice Department and specifically Bill Barr trying to cover up for the president, ...

She was still trying to spin "Russian meddling" and 'election interference', as this somehow tied to Gen. Flynn. As for the 'independence' of the Justice Dept, don't look at us, pal. Obama, his wingman Holder, and Lynch, and etc. etc. are the ones politicized IC and DoJ as weapons against his political opponents.
Schumer said the same thing. Schumer: GOP Pushing "Absurd Russian-Generated Conspiracy Theory" About Obama, Biden
Frankly, this is all Dems can push their spin right now. A "Conspiracy Theory", even though it is beyond a theory, there are proof (and more coming out) that a conspiracy existed, perpetrated by Obama AND Obama henchmen/women against a US president.
Wait, is that a name? is this a parody?
I think the fact that she is comms director for the DNC tells you how bad off the DNC is.
Found that name in a bowl of Alphabet soup ?
I saw this painful interview. Apparently Bill Hemmer has the patience of a saint.
Holy crap! I can’t believe she helped us out by telling us this information! We better listen to her!!
Saw this “interview”- this lady was scrreeeeching pathetically. Were the Dems not ready for the uncovering of the unmasking after its been known these 4 years? What are they thinking?
I can’t remember the last time I turned off an interview solely because of the person’s voice. I don’t even know what she was talking about, all I heard was screaming weasels on fire.
I can only guess you have never heard Mike Wallace. Lol.
Unfortunately, I don’t think she or her Dems have a lot to be worried about. I hear a lot of republicans talking about who asked for what, or who accepted what data. That’s a long ride from actually bringing charges and indicting someone for a crime. I do hope to be proven wrong. If they plan to take it the next level, then don’t wait too long. We are about to enter the Summer Convention seasons.
Ever since I heard that McCabe was NOT going to be prosecuted, I lost a lot of faith in this group of white house lawyers to bring the hammer down. And I don’t mean another ‘sternly worded note to ‘whom it may concern’.
Xochitl, its not the thousands of DOJ employees you need to worry about. Its the tens of million American who believe that the DOJ has not only violated Americans Constitutional Rights but also have committed crimes.
Well, more a bowl of Aztec soup.
DNC asshat supports spying on US citizens
ACLU is okay with civil rights abuses
It backfired on them. And there is more to come. Unmasking is just the tip of the iceberg.
What nationality is the lady?
Nah. (They sure sound nervous, no?)
Not very good spin on the part of the DNC. They own Bidden as their Presidential candidate.
As the ancient knight in the Indiana Jones Holy Grail move says to the Nazi (him being the DNC) “you have chosen poorly.”
