Sandy Hook truther Alex Jones brags his InfoWars conspiracy site cleared to attend White House briefings

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s administration has given several fringe right-wing news outlets access to the daily White House press briefings, and now conspiracy theorist Alex Jones says he’s about to join the party.

Media Matters notes that Jones — who in the past has embraced conspiracies ranging from 9/11 being an “inside job,” to former President Barack Obama’s birth certificate being a forgery, to the Sandy Hook massacre being a “false flag” — said this week that he has been offered White House press briefing credentials by the Trump administration.

“I know I get White House credentials, we’ve already been offered them, we’re going to get them, but I’ve just got to spend the money to send somebody there,” Jones said in a video posted on Wednesday.

In addition to sending one of his “reporters” to attend White House press briefings, Jones said that he also wanted to send people to do investigative journalism in Washington, D.C.

“But there is investigative journalism, or people to interview in D.C.,” he said. “Might be good to put a few reporters there, it’s just all a money issue.”

In addition to his role in fueling the “9/11 Truth” and “Birther” conspiracy theories, Jones has also opined that same-sex marriages are a plot by eugenicists, that the Air Force is creating tornadoes in the Midwest, and that Michelle Obama is really a man who kidnapped her two children to hide her true identity.

The Justice Department inspector general's report debunked President Donald Trump’s repeated claims that the FBI’s Russia probe was launched out of anti-Trump bias by FBI leaders. Conversely, it did find anti-Hillary Clinton bias among FBI agents.

Trump claimed for years that the FBI investigation was opened because of anti-Trump bias by FBI leaders, citing text messages sent between former top FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page that criticized him during the 2016 campaign. Inspector General Michael Horowitz concluded that neither Strzok nor Page were in a position to start an investigation into Trump’s campaign and concluded that the FBI probe was justified, refuting claims that the probe was opened because of bias by the FBI’s top officials.

AG Bill Barr will ‘try to interfere’ in the 2020 election to re-elect Trump: MSNBC national affairs analyst

Published

Attorney General William Barr will use the Department of Justice to "try to interfere" in the 2020 presidential election to re-elect Donald Trump, MSNBC's national affairs analyst predicted on Tuesday.

John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word."

"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.

"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.

Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.
