The Russian collusion delusion – brought to you by – the MSM.
Sara cited, “the letter notes that the two text messages in April 2017 were during the same time frame as the FBI and DOJ officials were having conversations with reporters.”
She continued, “During that time the Washington Post ‘broke a story on the Carter Page FISA application on April 11, 2017, setting off a flurry of articles suggesting connections between President Trump and Russia’.” (Continued below.)
“Review of the new documents raises grave concerns regarding an apparent systemic culture of media leaking by high-ranking officials at the FBI and DOJ. Related to ongoing investigations.” – Congressman Mark Meadows
What Congress is doing about the MSM leaks.
Congress has created a task force. The letter that Meadows sent over to Rod Rosenstein also asked for more information and more communications.
Congress asked for more communications from three other people involved. They are Stu Evans, Mike Kortan and Joe Pientka. The letter is careful to state that “some of these individuals may share the committees’ same concerns.” (More below.)
Additionally, the task force is asking for MORE communications. They are seeking what Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page and Mueller’s lead prosecutorial attorney, Andrew Weismann shared between themselves.
Bob Goodlatte – Chairman of the Judiciary Committee was also sent a copy of the letter. Additionally, Chairman of the Oversight Committee of Government Reform, Trey Gowdy was also sent copied on the letter.
