Anderson Cooper: “Do you still believe the president could be a Russian asset?”
Fmr. FBI Director Andrew McCabe: “I think it’s possible. I think that’s why we started our investigation. And I’m really anxious to see where Director Mueller concludes that.”
That was a recent exchange between fired FBI acting director McCabe and CIA intern Anderson Cooper on CNN. McCabe had launched his book tour and was eager to sell copies of his bestseller, which should probably be moved over to the “Fiction” section of the bookstore by now – perhaps in the “Espionage” subcategory.
Here are some additional powerful people who have lied to the American voters for the past two years.
Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke: “It’s beyond the shadow of a doubt to me that if there was not collusion, there was at least the effort to collude.”
Fmr. National Intelligence Director James Clapper: “More and more I come to a conclusion that after the Helsinki performance and since, that I really do wonder whether the Russians have something on him [President Trump].”
Failed Two-Time Loser Who Is Not President, Hillary Clinton: “It’s clear you [Donald Trump] won’t admit that the Russians have engaged in cyberattacks against the United States of America, that you encouraged espionage against our people, that you spouted the Putin line, sign up for his wish list, break up NATO … and you continue to get help from him.”
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Chairman of the House Select Committee on Intelligence: “I think there is direct evidence in the emails from the Russians through their intermediary offering dirt on Hillary Clinton as part of what is described in writing as the Russian government effort to help elect Donald Trump. They offer that dirt. There is an acceptance of that offer in writing from the president’s son, Don Jr.”
John Podesta, Crooked Hillary’s Campaign Manager: “It’s starting to smell more and more like collusion.”
Current DNC Chairman Tom Perez: “There is, I think, a mountain of evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.”
Former DNC Chairperson, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL): “It was a disgusting and traitorous act and it needs to be prosecuted.”
Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee: “We know there was some collusion. We know the president’s son and campaign manager were involved in a meeting with the Russians to receive what they thought was information stolen by the Russians from the Democratic National Committee, as part of the Russian government’s attempt to help Trump in the election.”
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): “We saw cold, hard evidence of the Trump campaign – indeed, the Trump family – eagerly intending to collude, possibly, with Russia.”
Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), responding to a request from Tucker Carlson to provide any evidence at all related to collusion actually happening: “You’re peddling the narrative that the Trump administration is putting out, which also is the Putin narrative because they’re retweeting this with their Russian bots. If you’re on the same side as WikiLeaks and Putin, you should take a step back and wonder whose bidding are you really doing?”
Fmr. CIA Director John Brennan: “I use the term that this is nothing short of treasonous because it is a betrayal of the nation. He [President Trump] is giving aid and comfort to the enemy.”
Rachel Maddow, MSNBC Employee and Possible Insane Asylum Escapee: “The presidency is effectively a Russian op. Right? If the American presidency right now is the product of collusion between the Russian intelligence services and an American campaign… I mean, that is so profoundly big!”
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT): “The evidence is pretty clear that there was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.”
Jussie Smollett, Former Actor on ‘Empire:’ “Subway is open 24 hours. People kill me when they say things like that. Subway is open 24 hours for a reason. So that when you hungry at night and you don’t got no food, you go to Subway.”
Also Jussie Smollett: “I like to believe that there’s this thing called justice.”
Those are all exact quotes from people who went on national television and knowingly told lies to us. One of them faces 26 felony counts for lying and has had his career effectively ended. The rest of them have gotten away scot-free.
Sorry to break it to you Jussie, but that “thing called justice” is broken. Until the people other than Jussie Smollett face jailtime for lying to us all, there’s a two-track justice system in America: One for the Deep State, and one for everyone else.
