Full-blown panic ensued in the fake news media when it was announced that U.S. Attorney General William Barr was in Italy meeting with government officials about the role of Italian intelligence in what has become popularly known as “Russiagate,” the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
That panic only intensified when it was revealed that not only had Barr been meeting with Italian officials, he has also been in contact with the governments of the United Kingdom, Australia, and Ukraine, and that he brought John Durham with him on this latest trip.
You may recall that Durham is the U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut who was tapped by Barr to investigate the origins of the DOJ and FBI’s counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign.
The New York Times quickly put out a story decrying Trump’s call with the Australian prime minister.
The lede for the New York Times’ story read: “The discussion was another instance of the president using American diplomacy for potential personal gain.”
Well excuse me. This President spent the first two-and-a-half years of his first term under a dark cloud of suspicion of being a Russian agent and a traitor, and the entire country was put through that fiasco based on what is now known to have been a hoax.
How that hoax was created is something that demands investigation, even if the mainstream media that spent more than two years relentlessly hawking that hoax doesn’t think so.
