Tucker Carlson on his show last night exposed Adam Schiff for the myriad lies he’s told about having evidence for the now debunked Trump Russia collusion story. But as the Fox News opinion host rightly points out, this could not have succeeded had it solely been a partisan political ploy. “The entire apparatus of official Washington has been exposed by these [House Intelligence Committee] transcripts as well as by the documents just released in the Michael Flynn case.” Carlson stated.
“Look around. Do you know anybody who trusts the government anymore?” Carslon asked rhetorically. “There’s a reason for that. And it’s not good. It’s things like this.”
He went on: “And by the way it’s not just Democrats you should blame for the corrosion of our public life. The vast majority of the Russian collusion investigation…occurred during the first two years of this administration. Who ran the government then? At the time Republicans controlled both Houses of Congress and every single committee by definition. They had the power to expose this hoax and to shut it down but they did not.”
“We can only speculate as to why they did not.” Carlson added. “Perhaps they were too cowardly to tell the truth. Or maybe deep down, a lot of them agreed with the aims of all of this. Either way, it will be very interesting and we’re going to sit back and enjoy it as Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell and Richard Burr and so many of the other useless Senate Republicans, total phonies; who tell you they are representing you but don’t; explain why they didn’t really do anything to stop the derailment of America while it was in progress”
On his Thursday May 7 show, Carlson addressed the left’s angry response to the news that the DOJ is dropping its Michael Flynn prosecution.
This, from Fox News:
“There is a passionate debate underway right now among political partisans over the Justice Department’s decision to drop the case against General Flynn. They’re screaming,” Carlson said. “But there shouldn’t be a debate because there actually isn’t a debate about why the case was dropped. We already know. DOJ officials explained it in detail today.”
“Michael Flynn did not commit a crime and they knew it. How did they know? Because the FBI had already tapped Michael Flynn’s phone, which itself is a shocking outrage, completely unacceptable in a free country,” Carlson said. “But for some reason, nobody in Washington seems to notice or care about it. They should.”
[…] “We almost didn’t find out what really happened in this case. Michael Flynn almost went to prison. And that gets to the nub of all of this. Most important question of all, how often does the FBI set people up?” Carlson asked. “How many other lives have they destroyed without the public knowing about it? In other words, this isn’t about Michael Flynn. It’s about you.”
