Journalists Were Co-Conspirators in the Trump-Russia Collusion Hoax
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | February 15, 2018 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 02/15/2018 12:15:24 PM PST by Kaslin

RUSH: Something else, that if the shooting hadn’t happened today, that I would have led with today. There’s a great piece at The Federalist today by Lee Smith. I’ve got some pull quotes from it. But the primary point of his piece is, why isn’t the media covering the exculpatory things that have been uncovered about the Steele dossier and Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia? Why aren’t they reporting it? Why aren’t they reporting that it was Hillary Clinton opposition research? Everybody thinks they’re not reporting it because it’s liberal bias.

In Smith’s view, that’s not the reason. It’s something far worse. Everything that we have learned, that Steele has been lying to the FBI and talking to the media, that Steele never went to Russia to talk to his sources, that FBI never talked to Steele’s sources, that this dossier was nothing more than a political opposition document paid for by Hillary Clinton with a couple of cutouts, the mainstream media is not reporting it, as I’ve pointed out over and over again.

People that watch CNN, MSNBC, read the New York Times, Washington Post do not know what I’m talking about here because they have never heard this. Why? Lee Smith’s opinion is not that it’s bias. It is that the media was used to further this conspiracy, that the media conspired with Hillary, the media conspired with the FBI, the media conspired with the intelligence community to report and push this fake news. And he cites evidence. It’s a long piece. We will link to it at RushLimbaugh.com so you can read it quickly yourself.

But it’s right on the money. The reason the media can’t report this is because they made it all happen. They were coconspirators in the effort to bring down Trump. They were not innocent bystanders simply reporting what was leaked to them. Now, you might think, “Rush, we’ve known this all along.” Making myself perhaps not as clear as I should. It’s not that they were happy to accept leaks and publish the leaks. It is that they were actually conspiring with the Clinton campaign, the DOJ, under Obama and the FBI to run lies, to publish lies.

And he names the names of prominent journalists at the Washington Post, the New York Times, and Slate.com who did this, and he cites the examples of their stories and the headlines. He says they were willing participants. They were active co-conspirators, and, as such, they can’t report on this because it would require them to report on their role in it.

I want to see the cash flow that went to the journalists.

Were the payments made with “in-kind” favors of value?

Who will finally tell the people? The MSM won’t tell them. Will they believe it from other sources?

Thanks Kaslin. Rob Porter is just a DNC talking point, which the Partisan Media Shills regurgitate.

Not just the media.
I had an issue with an operation out of New York State.
I called the NYS attorney general’s office.
The first thing the recording said was if you have an issue with Donald Trump, press 1.
What a sick son Schneiderman is.

that FBI never talked to Steele’s sources


Did the FBI ever question Steele? Did it ever question Steele's motivation?

No problem: Start here in the Clinton Foundation archives to trace the journo/Clinton paper/money trail.

Poof! CNN's Jake Tapper disappears from Clinton Foundation website:
Column by Kelsey Rupp and David Mastio, USA TODAY
Published 4:57 p.m. ET May 20, 2015 | Updated 5:10 p.m. ET May 20, 2015

Yet another high-profile TV newsman may find himself embroiled in controversy over his connections to the Clinton Foundation.

Until late Tuesday afternoon, the Clinton Foundation website listed CNN anchor Jake Tapper as a "speaker" at a Clinton Global Initiative event scheduled for June 8-10 in Denver. After USA TODAY asked CNN about the event, Tapper's name was swiftly removed from the Clinton Foundation website.

One reason for CNN's quick reaction is easy to understand. Last week, ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, once a political operative for former president Bill Clinton, was widely attacked after he failed to disclose $75,000 in donations to the Clinton Foundation even as he covered the Clintons.

Tapper has no comparable connections to the Clintons. But by participating in the event next month, while Hillary Clinton is running for president and the foundation is in the news, he too could face criticism for an overly cozy relationship with the Democrats' most likely 2016 presidential nominee.

Jake Tapper's bio on the Clinton Foundation website, before he was scrubbed from the website. (Photo: Screenshot from May 19, 2015 at web site.)

Tapper wouldn't comment on the record. A CNN spokesperson, who asked not to be named, said Tapper was improperly listed as a speaker on the foundation website; he is scheduled to interview former president Clinton at the event and later moderate a panel discussion. The spokesperson said the network-approved interview will be televised. There will be no restrictions on the questions, and Tapper will not be paid by the foundation. Other details are still being negotiated.

That stands in Tapper's favor, but it does not solve the problem for Tapper or CNN, which is scheduled to host three Republican presidential primary debates. After Stephanopoulos' donations were reported by the conservative Washington Free Beacon, the ABC anchor withdrew from participation in a Republican debate, a blow to the network that reportedly signed a $105 million contract with the former Clinton White House employee.

Tapper has a far better reputation among Republicans than his controversial former ABC News colleague. But like Stephanopoulos, Tapper has a history on the liberal side of the political fence. According to a glowing profile of Tapper in Politico (written by a former Obama administration spokesperson), from 2000 to 2003 Tapper was a political reporter for the left-leaning news site Salon, where his work showed great skill and a liberal edge. Years before that he was spokesman for a Democratic congresswoman who became Chelsea Clinton's mother-in-law in 2010.

Since then Tapper, like Stephanopoulos, has successfully walked away from partisan politics to embrace a non-partisan persona and network stardom. In 2013, he wrote a well-received book on the war in Afghanistan, and he has contributed to conservative magazines such as The American Spectator and The Weekly Standard.

Here's a disturbing peek at how the Clintons calculatedly established The Clinton Foundation as a
quasi-global government. The Clinton Foundation has its own agenda-it is a counterpoint to American
government . It shapes global politics to fit the Clinton's financial needs.

This is just one of the many ways the Clintons cajoled these global entities to part with public revenue
to finance the Clinton Foundation and its several offshoots.

Each Clinton Foundation offshoot has its own money-raising machine.

=============================================

(Drum roll please) The Clinton global government

How was this trip, honorariums and on-site expenses booked on the EXPENSE CLAIMS?

Someone took a tax deduction.

Fertile ground for audit.

Journalists are co-conspirators in reshaping our society into a valueless group of government worshippers too.

When journos attended Clinton Global Initiative conferences how was the trip, journo honorariums,
travel, hotel suites, meals and other on-site expenses booked on the JOURNOS' EXPENSE
VOUCHERS TO THEIR RESPECTIVE EMPLOYERS?

<><> How were the expenses listed on annual reports to shareholders by publicly-traded media companies?

<><> And who took the tax deduction?

Looks like fertile ground for an audit. (hat tip ptsal)
