NY Times “CrossFire Hurricane” Story Covering For FBI Shows They Ain’t No ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’ [VIDEO]

The media’s narrative and spin involves propping up Hillary, Obama, James Comey, and the deep state. It’s also one that continues to madly scramble to find proof of any kind that Trump colluded with Russia. Problem is, as this NY Times ham-handed story shows, the spying and collusion came from the FBI…NOT the Trump campaign!

The F.B.I. investigated four unidentified Trump campaign aides in those early months, congressional investigators revealed in February. The four men were Michael T. Flynn, Paul Manafort, Carter Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said. Each was scrutinized because of his obvious or suspected Russian ties.

They used what is called ‘national security letters’ as a way to obtain specialized warrants to spy on all four men and hopefully find some juicy dirt on Trump. However, deep in the story as Powerline’s Scott Johnson points out, we find this admission.

A year and a half later, no public evidence has surfaced connecting Mr. Trump’s advisors to the hacking or linking Mr. Trump himself to the Russian government’s disruptive efforts.” [Emphasis Added]

Talk about burying the lead! The New York Times fish wrap did an outstanding job of burying three crucial pieces of information into one story.

  1. The FBI was indeed spying on the Trump campaign the entire time
  2. The same agents supposedly investigating the Trump team were basically the same group that gave Hillary a pass regarding the email investigation
  3. No one in the FBI was able to nor has been able to find evidence of Trump/Trump Team Russia collusion -which they buried in the 70th paragraph!

This thread from Kimberly Strassel is an excellent fisking as to why this story is nothing yet is it very much something NOT TRUMP.


Read it all.

Meanwhile The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway tore apart the story and put together a biting Top 10 greatest hits of NY Times FBI defense. One highlight regarding the NY Times liberal misuse of facts:

The story claims, “News organizations did not publish Mr. Steele’s reports or reveal the F.B.I.’s interest in them until after Election Day.” That’s demonstrably untrue. Here’s an October 31, 2016, story headlined “A Veteran Spy Has Given the FBI Information Alleging a Russian Operation to Cultivate Donald Trump.” It is sourced entirely to Steele. In September, Yahoo News’ Michael Isikoff took a meeting with Steele then published “U.S. intel officials probe ties between Trump adviser and Kremlin” on September 23, 2016. That story was even used in the Foreign Intelligence Service Act application against Page.

I guess the NYT no longer has any fact checkers nor could their so-called ‘journalists’ be bothered to do a modicum of research. Then again, if they did so it would destroy their very big and wonderful narrative they’ve been peddling since Hillary lost.

Why did the New York Times spin this oh-so friendly ode of protection to the FBI?

Several reasons.

A. Protect the narrative dammit!

B. Protect the media’s friendly leaker pals wandering around the FBI/DOJ and White House!

C. And a supremely clumsy attempt to spike the narrative because the upcoming Inspector General report slams the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email investigation.

Ain’t that the truth!

Fact of the matter is, it’s stories like this, which protect a favored narrative against all reality; is Reason 90 billion and eleventy as to why the media is no longer trusted.

The New York Times published a helpful article as to why agencies chose Code Names. It’s rather dry, but it’s also hilarious that they felt they had to write such a primer.

Well folks, guess who has shown that they ain’t no Jumping Jack Flash? Hint, it is NOT President Trump.

The NY Times article quoted one true thing at the end of it’s article.

Hours earlier, Mr. Trump told The Times that stories about Russian election interference were being pushed by his adversaries to distract from his victory.

And he debuted what would quickly become a favorite phrase: “This is a political witch hunt.”

Yes indeed it has been and it is. The fact is, what the NY Times wrote backfired on the NYT and the FBI. Will the media back down from their Crossfire Hurricane stance? Highly doubtful because NARRATIVE DAMMIT!

    Oh c’mon, Nina! No reference to the movie and Whoopi’s hilarious take on Mick’s song? “Mick, Mick, Mick, speak English!”
    That movie is also a sadly prophetic bit of foreshadowing about today’s intel agencies. *smdh*
