When I read on Drudge yesterday that the Washington Post had a “bombshell” story about President Trump allegedly leaking intelligence information, I looked at the time. It was apparent that this story broke a little ahead of the 5 and 6 p.m network news programs so that they could lead with this.
Others noticed it, too. The Conservative Treehouse said:
When the CIA wants to leak a damaging story they coordinate with the Washington Post and ABC. (and vice-versa).
When the State Dept. or FBI/DOJ wants to leak a damaging story they coordinate with CNN and the New York Times. (and vice-versa)
This consistent pattern has NEVER been broken.
Tonight using “unnamed” and the most vague descriptions of “anonymous sources” The Washington Post creates a fake news story specifically timed to release at the 5pm hour to hit President Donald Trump.
Transparent Media Agenda:
First indication is the timing of the Washington Post news release (5:02pm EDT).
Second indication coordination with NYT for immediate follow (6:26pm EDT)
Third indication – Same exact pattern as Flynn intelligence leaks. Identical timing.
Fourth indication – Same use of entirely anonymous sources: “former American government official” ie. an Obama official.
Only 3 U.S. Officials actually in the room with first-hand information: National Security Advisor HR McMaster, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Senior Adviser for policy, Dina Powell.
Publication motive/intent – The Washington Post never contacted anyone in the White House for questions, nor did they ask McMaster, Tillerson or Powell for comment before publication. All three call the Post article – fake News.
Look how eager the Washington Post was for this:
Curiously, another big story broke that could explain why this one was put out ahead of it.
Drudge has up “Dead DNC Staffer ‘Had Contact’ With Wikileaks.” Private investigator Rod Wheeler says he has evidence of this. Seth Rich is the dead DNC staffer. He was killed one night last summer. The police called it a robbery, but nothing was taken from him. He had three bullets in his back. Many believe that his anger at the way the DNC treated Bernie Sanders led him to leak info. Perhaps someone had motive to stop him. Wikileaks thinks so.
If this is true it would destroy the Dems narrative of Russian hacking. Since they have perilously put their eggs in this basket for the 2018 elections, they must divert attention from this story.
This Trump “bombshell” will keep media tongues wagging all week, they hope.
It’s also hard to discount Obama and Valerie Jarrett’s role in all of this. They want to take Trump down. It’s what they’re living for right now. I can see them picking up the phone to some of their buddies still entrenched in the CIA, FBI, NSA and State departments asking them to leak something to the eager media. It doesn’t even have to be true; it just has to look bad for Trump.
The president needs to go on offense. He needs to start prosecuting the Clinton Foundation and look into the Hillary server/email situation. He needs to find something on Podesta and his cronies.
Given their histories, it shouldn’t be hard.
