Now that it’s become abundantly clear that their only hope of removing President Donald Trump from office is to prove some form of conspiracy with the Kremlin, we’re assured that a major breakthrough in the Russia investigation is just around the corner.
You know, like when The New York Times published an article back in February that U.S. intelligence had intercepted numerous calls between Trump officials and Russian intelligence — a story later refuted by none other than then-FBI Director James Comey under congressional testimony. Or the infamous meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and a Russian lawyer, which Tim Kaine said could have amounted to “treason” — and yet turned out to be the biggest dud since “From Justin to Kelly.”
The newest angle is that the Trump administration interfered with the investigation into collusion with Russia. That’s the latest way that the left continues to hold on to the narrative, aided and abetted by the media. That’s why you’re not hearing much about what new FBI Director Christopher Wray just said, which absolutely blows that narrative to bits. Again.
According to The Daily Caller, during a speech before the Intelligence and National Security Alliance in Washington on Thursday, the new FBI chief said he hadn’t witnessed any meddling from the Trump administration or his White House surrogates in the probe being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
“I can say very confidently that I have not detected any whiff of interference with that investigation,” Wray said.
Meuller was Wray’s predecessor as an FBI chief, leading the agency from 2001 to 2013 and Wray expressed appreciation for Mueller’s abilities.
“I have enormous respect for former Director Mueller, who I got to work with almost daily in the early 2000s, as a consummate professional,” Wray said. “He’s really running that investigation.”
During his confirmation hearings in July, Wray said that he would resign if any pressure was put on him by the White House to compromise the investigation.
“No one should mistake my low-key demeanor as a lack of resolve, as some kind of willingness to compromise on principle,” Wray said at the time, according to The Washington Post.
Yes, in spite of the fact that Mueller’s investigation has turned into a fishing expedition that I’m sure will eventually look at whether or not Trump returned Nikolai Gogol’s “Dead Souls” to the library on time (Sure, Gogol was Ukrainian and not Russian, but that’s just part of the ploy! Wake up, sheeple!), the Trump administration has more or less stood back and let it do its work.
That’s not the impression you get in the media, however, which constantly seems to intimate that the Trump administration is somehow interfering with the probe. And while the media did report on Wray’s speech — mostly because it was his first public remarks since taking over the FBI — the coverage was kept low-key.
The reason why isn’t hard to see: Impeachment, no matter how improbable it may be, sells. And Russia is the last avenue the Democrats have for impeachment. Why let the facts get in the way of a good story?
