I see #SarahSanders is trending again for all the right reasons: bitch-slapping the WH press corp for asking her baiting questions based on false narratives, which she then shot down.
"So when Trump called Russia meddling in our election a hoax...."

Man she shot that one down. That's why the Lefties are so mad today. They wanna wave the fake narrative "Trump claims all Russian meddling in the election is a hoax!" like the bloody shirt forever.
Trump NEVER said the Russians didn't try to interfere in our election.

He *agreed* with Rosenstein & Mueller: the Russians ATTEMPTED to interfere in our election with a pathetic troll farm that had no impact.

And the Russians got no help from the Trump campaign to interfere.
Another day goes by as doubt continues to grow in the hearts of Progressive Resisters everywhere that Mueller is going to deliver the proof of Trump/Russian campaign collusion with an honest-to-God indictment related to the 2016 election.

So they lash out.
Back when fake narratives were being floated to help the 8 year long Obama/Holder crime spree, the media was playing along with many of the fake narratives put out by the White House.
Obama or Holder or somebody high up in the administration would launch some categorically false narrative or say something blatantly dishonest & the media wouldn't challenge it, they'd parrot it, defend it, spin it.
Watching some of the absurd things Jay Carney would say or Josh Earnest where the media might grouse for a minute or two but nobody would ever SERIOUSLY challenge it. Like for days or weeks, showing it was false.
This helped create a Dem/Progressive base that is used to having the visible gov't actors helping and abetting their narratives.

A lot of these people are still in shock that's not Hillary Rosen or Brian Fallon up there answering the press corp's questions.
They are in shock that's not Hillary's Press Sec taking these questions.

They hate Sanders because they have to watch her not only challenge the usual fake talking points that got launched so effortlessly the 8 years Obama was in power.

She's absolutely DESTROYING them.
For several days, the agreed upon talking point of the Progressive base was that Trump said Mueller just proved any claim that Russia tried to interfere in the 2016 Presidential elections is a 'hoax'.
So today @PressSec went out there and absolutely destroyed this fake new talking point that the Progressive Resistance base had fallen truly, madly, deeply & oh so passionately in deep breathing love with.
Sanders pointed out the FACT that:

1) Trump never said Russia didn't try to meddle in the 2016 election
2) Trump said they tried to meddle but had no impact - which is EXACTLY what Rosenstein said
3) Trump said the narrative his campaign helped the Russians interfere = a hoax.
Once again the Progressive base is forced into a posture of the people in the play "Waiting for Godot", endlessly waiting for Mueller to deliver actual, real, honest to God[ot] Trump/Russia election collusion by INDICTING someone for it.

Stupid people haven't figured this out yet, so I'm going to have to explain it:

When someone involved in a conspiracy FLIPS, you get them to testify in court against the higher ups while holding over their heads the fact their own case remains unresolved.
You charge them WITH the conspiracy, not just minor process things or lame FARA violations. To make sure they don't double cross you on the stand & change their story you keep their cases open. They get their 'reward' AFTER they help you nail the higher ups.
NONE of the Americans Mueller has charged in his investigation has been charged with any kind of CONSPIRACY.

SEVERAL of them have already been allowed to plead guilty.
The Left has talking points that Flynn & Papadopoulos and Page and Manafort flipped long ago and have spent months singing like canaries about all the cool awesome Trump/Russia collusion they know about.

It's a fantasy.
We have a leak culture now. Mueller's team leaks like a sieve. The DOJ/FBI plotters used strategic leaks to plant stories in the US news media to drive narratives and they did this for years.
IF Mueller's team and IF the FBI/DOJ plotters had found actual real evidence of Trump/Russia election collusion, they'd have rushed it out the door while it was still piping hot out of the oven.

Recall how many times they THOUGHT they had that smoking gun?
How many times in the last year did the media rush some leaked info out as FAST as they could to 'prove' Trump/Russia collusion only to have it blow up in their faces?

Five times? Six? Or was it seven? Was anybody keeping count?
Yet we're supposed to believe Mueller's ALREADY been handed all kinds of smoking guns, he has real evidence of collusion betwixt the Trump campaign & Russia but amazingly, in months none of it has leaked in the media.

Isn't that....curious? 🤔
And so hope springs eternal! At this point the Prog/Dem/Resist base is clinging like as to a life preserver the hysterically funny talking point that Mueller has tons of incriminating evidence that hasn't leaked & he's gonna make huge Trump family/team indictiments any day now.
I understand how DNC Media leak culture works. If they had ANYTHING that proved Trump/Russia election collusion, you'd have seen it long ago.






They didn't have any last May and they don't have any right now.

THAT'S why the Left is freaking out about Sarah Sanders today.

Hope is...dying.

The doubts are growing.

You know what this calls for?

You know how a jet fighter launches chaff to throw the enemy off the target?

I'm halfway convinced it was the **TRUMP TEAM ITSELF** in the White House sending out people to be anonymous sources spreading these "OMG Kushner is an IDIOT!" stories in the Fake News Media.
Trump is a master of information warfare.

If anybody started putting 2 and 2 together and snooping around what Kushner was up to, I can totally see the White House sending people out to anonymously seed the media with stories like...this:

All the anonymous sources were in agreement: this Kushner guy is just benefiting from having married Trump's daughter, he's in way WAY over his head, has got no clue what he's doing.

Hi @seanmdav.

For a guy who calls out the Fake News Media an awful lot, you sure seem to trust what they tell you when it suits you.

Somebody who **actually** listened to Wray's testimony **instead of** getting their "Cliff Notes" from the Fake News Media:

My friend @Shem_Infinite:

There is no excuse for this. You're getting your "hot take" on what Wray actually testified from a Huffpost Reporter?

Do better.

We already saw this movie.

Didn't we already see this movie?

I think we all already saw this movie.

The only thing **different** about how Comey won't answer the questions put to him by these Congressional commitees [other than the standard "I don't recall"] is he won't be saying:

"I can't comment on that because it's currently part of an ongoing federal investigation."
Instead Comey will be saying THIS:

"On the advice of my legal counsel, I invoke my Fifth amendment rights."


"My counsel has advised me not to discuss this, and so I won't."

To people endlessly asking me if President Trump is aware of and taking steps to combat this whole "Color Revolution" playbook:

Yes, he is aware of it.

Yes, he is taking steps to deal with it.

No, he's not going to tell you what they are.
The biggest assumption people make is because Trump hasn't **publicly rolled out** his strategy for dealing with this threat that is all over the media & we're all talking about it is because....he's blind to it.

Utter nonsense.

Trump does not reveal things until HE'S READY TO DO THAT.

And he will only do that when there's nothing the enemy can do to sabotage his efforts.

Look at what just happened YESTERDAY.

Yeah. Durham's wrapped.

That's why they are issuing the subpoenas now.

I've had to endlessly explain this for going on 2 years now:

While the investigation is ongoing, you wouldn't learn anything from subpoenaing these goons because they'd do what COMEY & STRZOK & Mueller & everybody else did when they testified before Congress.

How many times did you want to hear over and over

"I'm sorry I cannot answer that question because the matter is currently under investigation by the Dept. of Justice" or the dozen of variations to that?

Because THAT'S what you would have heard before now.

You know I'm right.

A whole lot of people get SpyGate stuff wrong because they don't know the timeline of the actual events.

So here's a handy reference you can use:

Given to what's coming, I want to draw your attention to THESE two events that occurred in early March, 2016. Image
THIS got memory-holed. But pay attention. There will be a quiz later. Image
