Media Hopes Dashed, but I Doubt It Will Make Much Difference
Morell appeared at an intelligence community forum to “cast doubt” on “allegations that members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.”
“On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke, but there is no fire at all. There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark. And there’s a lot of people looking for it.”Morell also cast serious doubt on the credibility of the infamous, explosive “dossier” originally published by the sewer drain BuzzFeed, saying that its author, Christopher Steele, paid intermediaries to talk to the sources for it. The dossier, he said, “doesn’t take you anywhere, I don’t think.” Morell’s comments echo the categorical remarks by Obama’s top national security official, James Clapper, who told Meet the Press last week that during the time he was Obama’s DNI, he saw no evidence to support claims of a Trump/Russia conspiracy. “We had no evidence of such collusion,” Clapper stated unequivocally.
Unlike Morell, who left his official CIA position in 2013 but remains very integrated into the intelligence community, Clapper was Obama’s DNI until just seven weeks ago, leaving on January 20.
The media,which now has the laughable credibility of a high school student newspaper is run by gossip queens, odorous swamp creatures and mindless puppets who have long abandoned any ability to engage in legitimate journalism. The Washington Post, NYT and CNN are all now little more than rumor mill fiction rags hell-bent on destroying Trump no matter how much credibility they lose in the process.
