If you thought the liberal media would be happy to feed off the failure of Anthony Scaramucci for a while, you thought wrong. The Wall Street millionaire being canned by Trump just 10 days into his new jobs is old news to the Washington Post. They need something more juicy, and they have to test newly appointed Chief of Staff John Kelly, so tonight they’ve gone back to same ole’ narrative…. Russia.
No doubt it’s a story printed with the intent to ruffle the feathers of Trump and Kelly, because it’s all based on “sources who are familiar with the president.”
According to the Washington Post (WaPo), while preparing to leave the G20 Summit in June, “President Trump’s advisers discussed how to respond to a new revelation that Trump’s oldest son had met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign.”
WaPo claims Trump’s team devised a truthful statement for Donald Trump Jr to release, but that the true statement went into the trash can once President Trump got involved.
WaPo writes, “They wanted to be truthful, so their account couldn’t be repudiated later if the full details emerged. But within hours, at the president’s direction, the plan changed.”
WaPo reports that it was during the flight home on Air Force One, that President Trump scripted the statement about Trump Jr. and the Russian lawyer had “primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children” when they met in June 2016.
WaPo says it got the information about the alleged scripting from “multiple people with knowledge of the deliberations.”
As we all know by now, Don Jr’s first statement to The New York Times had nothing to say about the Russian lawyer offering information about Hillary Clinton. Thus, WaPo states Don Jr. was later shown to be misleading.
According to WaPo, “the extent of the president’s personal intervention in his son’s response, the details of which have not previously been reported, adds to a series of actions that Trump has taken that some advisers fear could place him and some members of his inner circle in legal jeopardy.
As special counsel Robert S. Mueller III looks into potential obstruction of justice as part of his broader investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, these advisers worry that the president’s direct involvement leaves him needlessly vulnerable to allegations of a coverup.”
WaPo, which is constantly being labeled correctly as “fake news” by the president, is never shy on revealing its hate for Trump.
They have a history of putting out error-filled stories based on nameless sources intended to hurt conservatives, Trump, Republicans, and anyone who has any passion for ‘Making America Great Again.’
As I’ve reported several times on this website, late last year WaPo printed a hit piece based on “nameless” people who pointed to websites like ours as being in bed with the Russian TV network known as RT.
I have never spoke or met with anyone from RT. And yet, WaPo will try to put honest people like myself in hell’s fire because we have a large audience that is pro-Trump. So, keep that in mind as you read the rest of this story.
WaPo writes, “This was . . . unnecessary,” said one of the president’s advisers, who like most other people interviewed for this article spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive internal deliberations. “Now someone can claim he’s the one who attempted to mislead. Somebody can argue the president is saying he doesn’t want you to say the whole truth.”
WaPo points out in its article that “misleading the public or the news media is not a crime.”But then goes on to say “advisers to Trump and his family told The Washington Post that they fear any indication that Trump was seeking to hide information about contacts between his campaign and Russians almost inevitably would draw additional scrutiny from Mueller.”
Right. So people who are close to the situation, and who are concerned for Trump, are running off to WaPo with this sort of junk? Who writes this crap!
It gets better.
According to one of WaPo’s nameless sources who is so concerned for Trump, the president “refuses to sit still.” The source also said, “He doesn’t think he’s in any legal jeopardy, so he really views this as a political problem he is going to solve by himself.”
WaPo reached out to Trump Jr. for a comment. He did not respond.
WaPo did get a response from Don Jr’s lawyer when asked about the president scripting his son’s original story. WaPo claims the lawyer said he has no evidence to support that theory.
WaPo goes on to give details about who said this, and who said that on the day President Trump allegedly scripted the statement for his son. According to WaPo’ source, one of the president’s trusted aides, Hope Hicks was acting as the buffer between Trump and his son about the contents of the statement.
The source claims the president dictated the final statement to Hicks. She then gave it to Don Jr. who was not on the plane at the time.
They should have stuck with poking fun at Scaramucci, it would have gotten many more clicks. Stupid people at WaPo. Just downright stupid!
