CNN got so carried away covering for the Democrats that they forgot their bottom line.
They’re paying big for a scandalous story they refused to cover.
Donald Trump revealed one scandalous fact that sent CNN’s ratings in a nose dive.
There is a growing information crisis in the American mainstream news.
The mainstream news gets to decide the narrative to a large extent.
The accusations against Brett Kavanaugh were the headline every day while the allegations against Joe Biden are merely a footnote in the news when they are mentioned at all.
There was endless amount of news coverage on the Russia investigation and the media hype that lasted for years until Mueller was finally forced to reveal his empty report.
Now that it’s being revealed how corrupt the FBI was in promoting the Russiagate hoax the mainstream media is strangely silent.
Recently discovered handwritten notes by FBI former head of counterintelligence Bill Priestap, that were taken down after meeting with then-FBI Director James Comey and then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, suggests that the FBI was hoping to prosecute Michael Flynn.
They were hoping to get Flynn “to admit to breaking the Logan Act” when he spoke to the Russian ambassador during the Trump transition time period.
The notes also show the FBI was considering using their interview of Flynn on January 24, 2017, to “get him fired” and to “get him to lie.”
The Logan Act was enacted in 1799 but despite being on the books for over two hundred years has never been used in a criminal prosecution before. The original intention of the act was to make sure that American citizens aboard didn’t falsely claim to be government officials.
Flynn was charged with lying to the FBI, not any violation of the Logan act.
He pled guilty after being given a plea deal where the prosecution promised not to go after Flynn’s son as they had been thinking of doing.
Flynn has since tried to withdraw his guilty plea.
This is an important story that the American public should hear but as President Trump pointed out, CNN just will not cover the story.
“@CNN doesn’t want to speak about their persecution of General Michael Flynn & why they got the story so wrong,” Trump tweeted. “They, along with others, should pay a big price for what they have purposely done to this man & his family. They won’t even cover the big breaking news about this scam!”
Trump continued, pointing to the insane story CNN was reporting instead of the Michael Flynn story.
Trump tweeted, “Just told that Fake News @CNN is falsely reporting that I was recently shouting at my campaign manager over made up nonsense. Actually, he is doing a great job, I never shouted at him (been with me for years, including the 2016 win), & have no intention to do so. Just FAKE NEWS!”
CNN won’t report the basic facts to people, they’re no longer a news station they are Democrat propaganda.
