Here we go again.
The latest strategy to take down President Trump, and undo an election Democrats and their media accomplices don’t like, is the whistle-blower attack.
According to Julian E. Barnes, Nicholas Fandos, Michael S. Schmidt and Matthew Rosenberg’s article at the New York Times:
A potentially explosive complaint by a whistle-blower in the intelligence community said to involve President Trump emerged on Thursday as the latest front in a continuing oversight dispute between administration officials and House Democrats.
While the allegation remains shrouded in mystery, it involves at least one instance of Mr. Trump making an unspecified commitment to a foreign leader and includes other actions, according to interviews. At least part of the allegation deals with Ukraine, two people familiar with it said.
A “potentially explosive complaint” that is “shrouded in mystery“? This better get better.
But it doesn’t. Later on in the article – much later, after as much innuendo as the four (they really needed four?) writers could pack into a single article, we have this:
Some legal experts said it was not obvious how an exchange between Mr. Trump and a foreign leader could meet the legal standards for a whistle-blower complaint that the inspector general would deem an “urgent concern.”
Under the law, the complaint has to concern the existence of an intelligence activity that violates the law, rules or regulations, or otherwise amounts to mismanagement, waste, abuse or a danger to public safety. But a conversation between two foreign leaders is not itself an intelligence activity.
Uh….if that is the case – if, after starting with the fact that there are no specific facts, the article now tells us there probably is no issue here even if there were specific facts – then what the #%@&! is this article about? Why was it even written?
The New York Times – and the Washington Post, which is also pursuing this apparent non-story – have ceased to be newspapers and are now propaganda arms of the Democrat Party.
If you doubted it before, I would hope this latest pile of garbage makes it clear.
