It’s not the liberal media that’s bringing down Trump — it’s law enforcement

Published

on

The Washington Post and New York Times have been dropping bombshell after bombshell on the Trump team’s efforts to conceal their ties to Russia — but these explosive reports are coming from inside sources.

And those sources are in law enforcement.

The Daily Beast analyzed how those anonymous sources are identified by reporters and determined they’re current and former officials within the FBI, CIA and other law enforcement agencies.

“It’s not the liberal media that’s out to destroy Trump, although make no mistake, the media generally hate the guy — and why shouldn’t they?” reported Michael Tomasky. “Remember ‘enemy of the people’? It’s law-enforcement. It’s intelligence. That is, it’s the protectors of our laws who are trying to send this president to an early retirement.”

FBI agents had largely backed President Donald Trump during the election, because they tend to be “law-and-order” Republicans, and both former FBI director James Comey and Rudy Giuliani’s associates in the New York field office seemed to be helping the GOP candidate.

But something happened after the election.

Trump stepped up his rhetorical attacks on the FBI, which began during the campaign, and started pressing Comey to back off his investigation of possible Russian collusion.

It’s also possible the FBI has found hard evidence of criminal wrongdoing related to Russian interference in the presidential election — although no such evidence has been revealed.

However, it seems certain — based on how the investigation has played out in newspaper reporting — that such evidence will be leaked, if it exists.

“The people who are looking to bring Trump down aren’t the people with press passes,” Tomasky wrote. “They’re the people with badges.”

The outcome is another major political loss for President Donald Trump, who had held multiple campaign rallies for Rispone.

During his most recent rally, Trump begged the crowd to give him a "big win" in the election.

Eddie Rispone has conceded the #lagov race to Gov. John Bel Edwards, giving the Democrat four more years in ruby red Louisiana despite Trump’s best efforts to flip the seat. Edwards camp says Rispone called minutes ago to concede. #lagov #lalege

Published

on

Press secretary Stephanie Grisham on Saturday argued it was "dangerous for the country" for anyone to challenge the veracity of her claims.

Grisham made her argument after President Donald Trump went to Walter Reed Hospital for an unannounced doctor's visit, resulting in a great deal of speculation.

Following the visit, Grisham claimed Trump was "healthy" and "without complaints" -- a claim many found unlikely as the president has spent a good deal of time as president airing his many grievances.
