Biden and Obama Admin Officials are Heading for the Tall Cactus in Flynn “Unmasking” Scandal
Former Bill Clinton hatchet man, now turned ABC Fake News Reporter, George Stephanopoulos asked Sleepy Joe Biden a direct question: Did Joe know anything about the FBI investigation of Michael Flynn’s contacts with the Russian ambassador.
Biden’s initial response was a categorical denial, “I know nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn.” Besides, what difference does it make. This whole thing is nothing but a distraction from the country’s real problems.
Even his pal George couldn’t let that whopper pass. He pointed out that Joe was present during a 2017 Oval Office cabal targeting Michael Flynn. Biden visibly shocked at being asked a tough question, something he hasn’t had to do yet in his campaign, tried to cover up his attempt to avoid answering. “Oh, I thought you asked whether I was involved in the investigation. I wasn’t.”
Actually, he was. He turned up on a list of Obama Administration officials who requested that Flynn be identified on the FBI surveillance reports of the Russian ambassador. Biden’s fellow conspirators who showed up on the list comprise a rogue’s gallery of enemies of President Trump: FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and Obama chief of staff Denis McDonough.
It takes no stretch of the imagination to figure out what motivated those folks. They formed a byzantine labyrinth of deep state power brokers. Comey had the juice to get a fake FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign and give the fake news media a pretense for breaking the Russian collusion scandal.
Also, the intelligence community had over the Obama years become Brennan’s personal kingdom. He wasn’t about to let an outsider and new President Donald Trump make the intelligence community subordinate to the White House.
Whatever Joe Biden’s role in the mess that is about to be unraveled with all the recent and upcoming releases by the Department of Justice, he’ll have to choose: Should he claim cluelessness and ignorance. Or should he risk exposure as a Washington, DC swamp dweller and lying politician?
Then there’s a more credible, yet worrisome alternative. Joe could have been telling the truth. No one believes that he was ever the brightest bulb in the room. President Obama, despite his recent endorsement of Biden, could never have regarded Biden as anything more than a doddering figurehead.
Perhaps Biden’s handlers wanted the information on Flynn and didn’t tell him.
Those handlers could also include the D.N.C., who viewed Joe as the only alternative to socialist Bernie Sanders—until someone better came along. What came along, unfortunately, was the coronavirus pandemic, which placed Joe in the basement broadcasting less-than-lifelike views of an already gaffe-prone candidate.
Whether clueless or lying, Joe Biden clearly was not truthful about his knowledge of the FBI investigation. Said President Trump, “The unmasking is a massive thing. I watched Biden yesterday…being interviewed by…Stephanopoulos, and he said he knew nothing about anything. He has no idea; he knows nothing about anything. Nothing at all. And then it gets released today that he was a big unmasker. So how do you know nothing if you’re one of the unmaskers?”
Sure, unmasking is neither illegal, nor uncommon. The big deal is that the information goes only to the person who requests the information. Joe Biden’s name is on the list, and he clearly knew that a campaign was underway to target Flynn, who knew that the Russian collusion farce was a deep-state undermining of a new President they never wanted to win the White House. This was an attempt by Deep State Democrats to stick it to a Republican, one who they knew was going to undo all of their work once he got into office. They just didn’t know they’d ever get unmasked too.
