Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
How fake is the “whistleblower” scandal? The “whistleblower” in question doesn’t even possess first-hand information. – At least, if you believe the Washington Post’s reporting on the matter. This little nugget was buried deep within the bowels of a Saturday WaPo report on the subject:
“The whistleblower didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications, an official briefed on the matter told CNN. Instead, the whistleblower’s concerns came in part from learning information that was not obtained during the course of their work, and those details have played a role in the administration’s determination that the complaint didn’t fit the reporting requirements under the intelligence whistleblower law, the official said.”
Oh. Helps to know facts, doesn’t it? Too bad our fake news media refuses to focus on those facts, preferring instead to harp on the bullsh*t being spread by the Democrat Party.
Here’s another fact: The intelligence whistleblower law everyone keeps referring to doesn’t even apply to the President of the United States in any event. That law applies to people within the intelligence community and their conduct during the course of their jobs. The POTUS is not a part of the “intelligence community.” Attempting to apply it to the President would have huge separation of powers issues, given that the law is designed to give congress oversight related to the intelligence community.
The POTUS is the POTUS. Period. The POTUS has unique constitutional authority to conduct the foreign policy of the United States of America. The conduct of foreign policy includes phone calls with foreign leaders like the one in question in this fake news fake scandal.
Such calls are attended by an array of senior intelligence, State Department and other officials who listen as a matter of course. None of the officials who were actually on the call and actually listened to the conversation lodged any complaint or concern about it. The supposed “whistleblower” – almost certainly a holdover from the Obama administration – has no standing at all here.
This is a fake news fake scandal. Period. It is simply one more in a long line of unending efforts by the Democrats and their media toadies to harm this President and his ability to conduct the nation’s foreign policy. These are subversive, seditious actions by disloyal people who don’t give a damn about the health and survival of this country.
These are Democrats. This is who they are, and what they do.
That is all.
