NationalSentinel House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) had a few choice words for Speaker Nancy Pelosi and “Pencil Neck” House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) after they criticized POTUS Donald Trump for comments he made to ABC News earlier this week about possibly accepting information about a political rival from a foreign source: Shut the hell up.
In comments that the “mainstream” media will refuse to report because they have refused to report the “Spygate” scandal truthfully thus far, McCarthy blasted both Democratic leaders over their hypocritical comments regarding the president after they have been silent for more than two years about the real scandal here: The use of foreign ‘dirt’ against President Trump’s 2016 campaign by Hillary Clinton, the DNC, and an allied opposition research firm, Fusion GPS.
“What I am appalled about is what has happened in our election. I watched in the last campaign the Democrat presidential campaign spend $6 million to a foreign entity to travel the world to try to find something when they could not find it, they made false accusations, salacious accusations at that,” McCarthy told reporters.
“Drove this country into a special counsel lasting more than 22 months. Using this false information, sending it to the FBI that went and got a FISA court [surveillance wrrant]. Then to spy upon Americans and took us through something we should never have to live again.
“I did not hear the Speaker be appalled at that. Or to have a chair of the House Intel Committee think that he’s knowingly speaking on a phone to a foreign entity, to supply some other false allegations. And what action did he take? Those are the things I’m appalled about that actually did happen,” he said.
At one point, a hack reporter attempted to defend the Clinton campaign, but McCarthy was having none of it; he repeated that Hillary, not Trump, bought and paid for foreign opposition research. What’s more, Clinton specifically sought it out by using a #NeverTrump British spy asset.
As a reminder regarding Schiff, McCarthy is reminding these ace reporters that the Intel Committee chair was pranked by a couple of Russian comedians who claimed they had “naked pictures” of POTUS Trump — and he was willing to accept them, per Real Clear Politics:
In this audio posted on YouTube by Russian pranksters, Rep. Adam Schiff can be heard discussing claims that the FSB has naked pictures of President Trump. Assume these Russians are involved with intelligence operations.
The Daily Mail reports that Schiff sent his staff to try and collect “classified materials for the FBI” after the prank callers told him Putin has naked blackmail pictures of President Trump.
Schiff can be heard discussing the Russia investigation with a man who claimed to be Andriy Parubiy, the chairman of the Ukrainian Parliament.
Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), the co-chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, was also in contact with foreign (Russian) actors while Mueller’s investigation continued, the president reminded reporters Thursday. Trump is referring to when he says Warner “spoke at length … with a talented entertainer,” but Warner was in contact with a Russian oligarch’s lobbyist in an attempt to reach dossier author Christopher Steele, The Daily Caller reported.
As for Clinton’s involvement in paying for foreign dirt on Trump, not only did her campaign pay for the Steele dossier, it was also involved with the Ukrainian government, and for the same purpose: Attempting to dig up dirt on Donald Trump.
We cited a report from The Hill‘s John Solomon:
In its most detailed account yet, Ukraine’s embassy in Washington says a Democratic National Committee insider during the 2016 election solicited dirt on Donald Trump’s campaign chairman and even tried to enlist the country’s president to help.
In written answers to questions, Ambassador Valeriy Chaly’s office says DNC contractor Alexandra Chalupa sought information from the Ukrainian government on Paul Manafort’s dealings inside the country, in hopes of forcing the issue before Congress.
Chalupa later tried to arrange for Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to comment on Manafort’s Russian ties on a U.S. visit during the 2016 campaign, the ambassador said.
Chaly says that, at the time of the contacts in 2016, the embassy knew Chalupa primarily as a Ukrainian-American activist, and learned only later of her ties to the DNC. He says the embassy considered her requests an inappropriate solicitation of interference in the U.S. election.
As far back as the summer of 2017, we noted the Ukrainian/Clinton/DNC connection. And lo and behold, back then, it was none other than Adam Schiff who said it wasn’t “appropriate” for Hillary’s campaign to have sought foreign dirt on the Trump campaign:
“It wouldn’t be appropriate for the Democrats to get help from the Ukrainian government,” Schiff, whose committee is investigating Russian election meddling, said. “It would be problematic to get any kind of support from a foreign government.”
There are some undeniable facts here that truly ought to outrage every American, regardless of political affiliation, because if it is allowed to go unpunished another administration will do it again:
a) Barack Obama’s administration spied on a rival political campaign — spied on it;
b) Obama knew about it and authorized it;
c) He allowed his sycophants in the Justice Department, FBI, and U.S. intelligence agencies to utilize deep state and foreign assets built over 70 years since World War II and put in place not to spy on presidential campaigns but to enhance our national security;
d) The lamestream media refuses to report this scandal honestly, refuses to ask Obama about it, and refuses to question Hillary because they are nothing more than shills and propagandists for the Democratic Party.
The thing is, POTUS Trump knows what happened. He knows what’s being investigated. And he knows what’s about to come out in terms of allegations and indictments.
He just set up Democrats and their media propagandists to go on record as being outraged by what he never did but Hillary did do.
