The Clinton protection racket explodes into hyperdrive

What we think we know about the dossier scandal …

What has been reported so far … A lot of folks have been confused following this story. I wanted to lay out what this whole scandal is about. In clear, easy-to-understand terms: The Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC reportedly paid a law firm to hide payments from the FEC that ultimately went to Fusion GPS, a shady opposition-research shop that then paid a retired foreign spy to investigate their American political rival with the help of the Kremlin. That "investigation" found its way to the FBI through Sen. John McCain and reportedly formed the basis for obtaining FISA warrants for the Obama administration to spy on political opponents.

Is there any wonder the media don’t want to talk about this?

Downplaying … The MSM continue to do the Clinton-Obama obfuscation dirty work. The LA Times editorial board says that it doesn’t matter who paid for the dossier. The Washington Post’s Paul Waldman downplays his own paper’s reporting. The Baltimore Sun editorial board calls the notion that it was Hillary Clinton who “colluded with the Russians” its “Alternative Fact of the Week.” This is all just the same tired Clinton protection racket going into hyperdrive. This is sadly nothing new.

Or just not wanting to cover … Yesterday, CRTV host Steve Deace was on HLN with Carol Costello. As Deace tried to highlight the media’s duplicity in covering Russia stories, Costello pivoted to a new topic. She actually said she wanted to cover “real issues,” not Russia.  I covered the jaw-dropping statement on Facebook Live yesterday.

WSJ reminds us of an important fact … In today’s Wall Street Journal is a report from Kimberley Strassel saying that a judge could rule as early as today whether Fusion GPS must give a House committee bank records regarding the work on the so-called Trump dossier. Hidden in that article is a reminder that Fusion GPS worked with Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who sought a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. Strassel puts the reminder in the same paragraph where she states that the bank records could show a monetary link to Russians. This could get very interesting.
