NPR Blatantly Lies About Donald Trump Jr.ís 2017 Senate Testimony
The Federalist ^ | NOVEMBER 30, 2018 | Mollie Hemingway

Posted on 11/30/2018 6:47:39 PM PST by E. Pluribus Unum

NPR falsely claimed that Donald Trump Jr.’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in September 2017 conflicted with an account given by a former attorney for President Donald Trump.

Here is NPR’s false write-up of that testimony:

Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee in September 2017 that although there had been negotiations surrounding a prospective Trump Tower in Moscow, they concluded without result ‘at the end’ of 2014.

‘But not in 2015 or 2016?’ Trump Jr. was asked.

‘Certainly not ’16,’ he said. ‘There was never a definitive end to it. It just died of deal fatigue.’

Trump’s account contrasts with the new version of events given by Cohen on Thursday in a guilty plea in federal court. In that new version, Cohen says the discussions with at least one Russian government official and others in Moscow continued through June 2016, well into Trump’s presidential campaign.

In fact, Senate investigators were asking Trump Jr. about a series of efforts to develop property in Russia, going back several years. Reporter Phil Ewing (reporter Tim Mak contributed to the story) conflates one of those efforts with another separate effort. That conflation results in the false news report.

A full 100 pages before the portion Ewing quotes, Trump Jr. explicitly contradicts NPR’s false claim when he gives a clear answer to the following question:

Did they report it in that annoying-ass, semi-fag low monotone voice that sounds like the play-by-play announcer for British croquet?

So who’s gonna organize marches across the country threatening to start an insurrection if he is kicked out?

There’s nothing left to lose boys.

We can hang together now or hang separately later, like Ben said.

Yeah I’m willing to say it will be an insurrection at the rally cause i got nephews and nieces who need to inherit a real republic.

If Trump is ousted, we will go to war, it needs to be known, just like my tagline says.

I DONT want to spend 10 minutes in jail.

I’m fat and comfortable on my couch and it’s fun typing on FR.

And I’m scared they’ll grab us and throw us in some hole for a long time.

But what’s the alternative?

I’m all ears.

Well we’re just watching people’s houses being raided in the dead of night like the feds are the gestapo and things are just getting worse.

and i don’t know how to organize a rally or to get a larger movement going.

but the country is in jeopardy and i have a feeling ALL of the names of folks who visited FR exist somewhere in some deep state database.

Not saying they worry about us much. But we’re kind of a “down the line” kind of problem to take care of.

It’s not so far fetched anymore.

I’m sure posting on FR is being monitored and you’re probably right that we are not a top priority at the present.

Nothing became too far fetched to believe after Usurpation Day.

Once I realized that both parties were subverting the Constitution it became easier to believe that the conspiracies were real and only regarded as theories because no one was ever arrested.

NPR grying to do leg work for Mueller.

If your neighbor watches NPrR, your neighbor will denounce you to the state push come to shove. The mentality of people watching/listening to that subsidised crap is scary.

I know for a fact that quite a few years ago there was a guy writing specifically about me (DP0622) somewhere, i forget where and he was taking the time to tear apart my posts and try and humiliate me and I didn’t give a ####.

Some other FReeper warned me and I saw my FR name in lights :)

I searched my name here on google just now and saw some attacks on me from several years back :)

Quite a few of us probably could.

I just don’t care.

But there’s people out there that hate us.

Make no mistake about it.

LOL, out there? there’s people here who hate me.

I keep telling them the truth about what natural born citizen means and because their guy ain’t one they get pretty vicious.

At some point I expect they’ll have to kill me to shut me up.
