We Live With Lies in America

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said on Fox News on Sunday: “If you pause for one moment and you read this IG (inspector general) report, here’s the FBI; they broke into President Trump — at the time candidate Trump’s — campaign, spied on him, and then they covered it up. It is a modern-day Watergate.” He added, “They broke into his campaign by bringing people into it. They have been trying to cover it up for the whole time.”

Now here is the problem! He is lying, not mistaken, flat out lying. Here is why. Justice Department Inspector General found no evidence the FBI “broke into” the Trump campaign while investigating the campaign’s relationship with Russia. The investigation found zero evidence that any member of the FBI investigation ever even suggested inserting informants into the Trump campaign! The FBI did not try to recruit members of the Trump campaign as CHSs (confidential human sources), did not send CHSs to collect information in Trump campaign headquarters or Trump campaign spaces, and did not ask CHSs to join the Trump campaign or otherwise attend campaign-related events as part of the investigation. This information is right out of the very report Kevin McCarthy said he got his facts! So he can read, I assume, so he intentionally lied! It seems like Trump’s contempt for the truth has somehow infected the GOP! This report is available to the public, so you do not have to take my word for anything! It says exactly what I just said it does!

McCarthy said this on Fox News, who made no effort to inform you of what information was actually in the report, which they knew, but made no attempt to inform you! This is why I warn against them. They do not report the news; they are just like those magazines at the check out counter at the grocery store! They are only interested in how to sensationalize so their audience will return for more!  McCarthy repeated the lies that Trump told about this subject, a man who never bothers with facts!

In his Christmas message, Trump called for a Christ-like “respect”. This from a man who has set the record for the number of insulting nicknames he has called his political foes, including “Sleazebag” for FBI Director James Comey, “Shifty” Rep. Adam Schiff, “Low IQ” Rep. Maxine Waters, “Crooked Hillary”, “Little Rocket Man”, “Lyin’” Sen. Ted Cruz, “Dumbo” Randolph Alles, “Fat Jerry” Rep. Jerrold Nadler, “Head Clown” Rep. Chuck Schumer, “Mr. MagooJeff Sessions, and “Dummy” Rep. Beto O’Rourke — to name just a few. Is this the government representation you deserve?

Well, if grade school name-calling does not bother you, or you have not actually read the actual report McCarthy is using as his reference to see for yourself that he and Trump told you lies about what it says, then I guess you do deserve what you get!

    When you reference something so clearly why wouldn’t you leave a link for others to check your source? Very well written Superman!
