A vast conspiracy of silence kept the ‘Russia Collusion’ story alive. Under oath Comey testified that he told President Trump that he was not under investigation for Russian Collusion. However, President Trump was far from alone in being told he was NOT under investigation.
James Comey also admitted he told congressional leadership the exact same thing, repeatedly. Specifically, James Comey stated he informed: Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, Devin Nunes, Adam Schiff, Richard Burr, Dianne Feinstein, and Mark Warner.
And they were not alone Comey also personally informed Republican and Democrat leadership, and both the Senate and House intelligence committees, that President Trump was not under investigation.
Do you realize how many people that is? Here is the list…
Mike Conaway (11th District of Texas), Peter King (2nd District of New York), Frank LoBiondo (2nd District of New Jersey), Tom Rooney (17th District of Florida), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (27th District of Florida), Michael Turner (10th District of Ohio), Brad Wenstrup (2nd District of Ohio), Chris Stewart (2nd District of Utah), Rick Crawford (1st District of Arkansas), Trey Gowdy (4th District of South Carolina), Elise Stefanik (21st District of New York), Will Hurd (23rd District of Texas), Adam Schiff, Ranking Member (28th District of California), Jim Himes (4th District of Connecticut), Terri Sewell (7th District of Alabama), Andre Carson (7th District of Indiana), Jackie Speier (14th District of California), Mike Quigley (5th District of Illinois), Eric Swalwell (15th District of California), Joaquin Castro (20th District of Texas), Denny Heck (10th District of Washington), James Risch (Idaho), Marco Rubio (Florida), Susan Collins (Maine), Roy Blunt (Missouri), James Lankford (Oklahoma), Tom Cotton (Arkansas), John Cornyn (Texas), Dianne Feinstein (California), Ron Wyden (Oregon), Martin Heinrich (New Mexico), Angus King (Maine), Joe Manchin (West Virginia), Kamala Harris (California)
All of them knew President Trump was not under investigation.
That also means that all of their key aides, staffers who assist each of the aforementioned politicians – and sit in on intelligence briefings, knew President Trump was not under investigation. That network extends downstream to thousands of people on capitol hill, and everyone surrounding the White House, and everyone in key legislative conact, and they all knew President Trump was never under investigation.
Other than one obtuse statement from what was apparently a frustrated Senator Chuck Grassley, the entire DC system kept a lid on the truth that President Trump was not ever under investigation.
The stunning truth is that the American political and media establishment allowed a phony story – that they knew was phony — to dominate our political discourse for months
For months, these “leaders” have allowed a FAKE STORY to dominate the news. And they all knew it was a LIE.
For all his faults, Donald Trump is fighting against this corrupt collective. We, the American people must decide which side will prevail.
