While legacy outlets run cover for their election interference in October that stories surfacing related to Hunter Biden were Russian propaganda despite no real evidence, some Democratic elites who engaged in the conspiracy are outright whitewashing their earlier claims.

Former Obama Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, who now serves as a professor at Stanford and contributing columnist for the Washington Post, is no exception.

In the early hours of Wednesday morning, McFaul wrote in response to Federalist Publisher Ben Domenech challenging the claim that McFaul ever dismissed the Hunter Biden story as Russian disinformation.

“If you have actual evidence that I lied about the Russian disinformation campaign against the Bidens, please post,” McFaul wrote. “Otherwise, delete this tweet. Its disinformation.”

A quick online search revealed no shortage of evidence.

Here’s the former ambassador condemning a CBS reporter for daring to ask the former vice president on the campaign trail about the treasure trove of emails published by the New York Post implicating the Democratic candidate in his son’s potentially criminal business ventures. The question came after the Post reported emails verified by Fox News showing Joe Biden stood to personally rake in millions from Chinese businessmen with deep ties to the Chinese Communist Party funneled through his son, Hunter.

“‘Story’? That’s not the right word to describe a hit piece so false that Twitter wont even post it,” McFaul snarked, as if Twitter’s selective censorship was proof of its illegitimacy. “By discussing disinformation, you legitimate and amplify it.”

Just several days earlier, McFaul challenged Twitter users again to find evidence that Hunter Biden committed a crime, apparently ignoring the Post’s blockbuster reporting and an 87-page report from a three-year Senate investigation surrounding Biden’s finances and detailing potential crimes.

Senate investigators for example, flagged a six-figure shopping spree for Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s brother James, and James’ wife Sara paid for by Chinese communist leaders as potential criminal activity.

The report also exposed the existence of transactions, which the public still knows little about, such as a $3.5 million dollar wire transfer to Hunter Biden from an ex-Moscow mayor’s wife.

McFaul held no reservations throughout this fall perpetuating claims from corporate media that the Hunter Biden email scandal incriminating their preferred presidential nominee stemmed from a Russian campaign to interfere in the November election.

The news plaguing the Biden campaign, at least from responsible outlets meanwhile, was merely dismissed by McFaul as a “kooky crazy conspiracy.”

McFaul also freely went on MSNBC to engage in the actual conspiracy pushed by the Biden campaign that the Hunter Biden stories were a plot of Russian disinformation.

Speaking on “AM Joy” under the premise that the Hunter Biden story is Russian disinformation, McFaul likened the ongoing scandal to Russian interference in 2016.

“It is exactly the same. And what I think Vladimir Putin wants, is he wants polarization, he wants delegitimization, he wants us not to hold a free and fair election that the majority of Americans will recognize and this is part of achieving that ultimate objective,” McFaul said. “They are playing with us. They are trying to do their disinformation tactics.”

McFaul employed the same Democratic talking points during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Meet The Press Daily.”

Last week’s statement from Hunter Biden himself admitting the existence of an ongoing FBI probe into his finances have cast further doubts on claims of Russian disinformation, as if the conspiracy had not already been debunked prior to the election with statements from the FBI, the Department of Justice, the Department of National Intelligence, and the Department of State.

Trump calls Limbaugh ‘legend,’ in first TV interview since Senate trial

Published

on

Former President Trump on Wednesday afternoon praised the career of conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, who has died of cancer.

“He loved his country, and he loved his fans,” Trump said on the Fox News Channel. “He is a legend.”

The interview was Trump’s first since the conclusion of his Senate impeachment trial last week.

Limbaugh’s wife, Kathryn, announced her husband’s death earlier in the day on his radio show. He had been diagnosed about a year ago with Stage-IV lung cancer. He was 70.

The president also said he had a personal friendship with Limbaugh, who was an early supporter of his 2016 presidential bid and who, like Trump, thought the president won reelection in 2020.

Trump also pointed out that Limbaugh was a provocateur in his views about conservative politics that often sparked backlash from liberals and other critics. 

Trump last year in his State of the Union address awarded Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Rep. Bennie Thompson targets Trump, Giuliani, Proud Boys and Oath Keepers in Capitol riot lawsuit

Published

on

Rep. Bennie Thompson is targeting former President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers in a suit alleging that they conspired to incite the violence that transpired at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

The lawsuit filed on behalf of the long-serving Mississippi Democrat by the NAACP and the Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll law firm claims that the defendants broke the 1871 Ku Klux Klan Act by attempting to meddle in Congress’s certification of the Electoral College count, according to NPR.

“The insurrection at the Capitol was a direct, intended, and foreseeable result of the Defendants’ unlawful conspiracy,” the lawsuit claims. “It was instigated according to a common plan that the Defendants pursued since the election held in November 2020.”

According to the outlet, Thompson told reporters on Tuesday: “I am privileged to partner with the NAACP to have my day in court so that the perpetrators of putting members of Congress at risk can be held accountable.”

Trump was acquitted on Saturday in his Senate impeachment trial in a 57-43 vote. While a majority of senators voted that the former commander-in-chief was guilty regarding the single article of impeachment that was passed by the House last month during Trump’s waning days in office, the 57 guilty votes failed to clear the two-thirds supermajority required to secure a conviction.

Judicial Watch sues U.S. Capitol Police in pursuit of emails and videos pertaining to Jan. 6 riots

Published

on

Judicial Watch has lodged a lawsuit against the U.S. Capitol Police in an effort to obtain emails and videos pertaining to the riot that transpired Jan. 6 at the Capitol.

The watchdog organization said in a press release that it filed the suit under the common law right of access to public records following the Capitol Police declining to provide materials sought in a Jan. 21 request.

“The public has a right to know about how Congress handled security and what all the videos show of the US Capitol riot,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “What are Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer trying to hide from the American people?”

The January request sought all video from within the U.S. Capitol during a nine-hour period on Jan. 6.

The request also sought “Email communications between the U.S. Capitol Police Executive Team and the Capitol Police Board concerning the security of the Capitol on January 6, 2021. The timeframe of this request is from January 1, 2021 through January 10, 2021,” according to Judicial Watch. The request also sought, “Email communications of the Capitol Police Board with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Department of Justice, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security concerning the security of the Capitol on January 6, 2021. The timeframe of this request is from January 1, 2021 through January 10, 2021,” according to the watchdog group.

The Capitol Police said in a Feb. 11 letter that the materials sought do not constitute “public records,” according to Judicial Watch.
