Fake News Constructs Russia Narrative 2.0 via Democrat Intel Briefing Spin…

The New York Times and a host of allied political narrative engineers attempted to spin up another Russia narrative yesterday.  The claim surrounds a briefing by DNI Joseph Maguire (pictured below) to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI).  Adam Schiff and house Democrats in the briefing claim DNI Maguire stated Russians favored President Trump and would work to assist his re-election.

The Democrat spin was to claim President Trump replaced Maguire as an outcome of this briefing; and Trump wants to ignore Russia interference assistance. etc. etc.  The media ran with the framework of the Democrat narrative; and the political operatives piled-on.

However, in a surprise move Jake Tapper actually undercuts the narrative engineering through his own sources with information on the reality of the briefing:

(1) DNI Joseph Maguire never said Russia was, would, or is working to interfere in the election to help President Trump.  Rather the briefing nuance was that Russia has an understanding of Trump and would likely view him as a deal-maker they could work with and Sanders, Buttigieg et al were unknowns.

(2) President Trump wasn’t angered at the Maguire briefing; however, he was angered that he had to find out about the briefing from GOP members of the HPSCI instead of Maguire briefing the President on the material prior to briefing congress.  The executive office was blindsided by committee members asking questions of the White House, when Maguire never informed the President of his briefing material in advance.

Those two points were spun wildly by the left-wing media.  Kudos to Jake Tapper for setting the record straight.

However, it is not a surprise for President Trump to end the tenure of Maguire as DNI given this end-run around the President and the possibility Maguire’s motives might just be another example of the intelligence community undercutting the office of the President. [I would say that’s highly likely]

The fact DNI Joseph Maguire would brief congress without informing the White House of the briefing material highlights a possible intent by Maguire to undermine the President.  Whether that intent is accurate is a moot point.  The action by Maguire leaves open the possibility, and his lack of judgement created a mess for the White House.

Therefore Maguire’s action showed poor judgement and a compromise within his position.  Given the sensitive nature of the position he holds, both issues are fatal flaws.

Hence, President Trump selected a more dependable Richard “Ric” Grenell to replace Maguire as interim Acting DNI.

  1. The minuscule effort by Russian Intelligence to tamper with the 2016 election pales into nothingness compared to the massive and overwhelming election-tampering by American Intelligence.

    Ironically, one of the ways American Intelligence tampered was to blame the Russians. Since this stinks like a continuation of those crimes, this briefing on election-tampering is therefore a form of election-tampering itself.

    Layers, people, layers.

      Yes, Russian interference amounted to $4,000 in Facebook ads! Of course, what about Mexican, Canadian, German, EU and Chinese interference?

      I suspect our election shenanigans are entertainment for Vlad!! The abysmal “debates” of the communist democrats must be hilarious like Keystone Cops episodes. And the intrigue from our own intelligence communities undermining our government and elections must be like a spy thriller to him. Yes, he doesn’t need to interfere, just watch us self-destruct.

      In the private sector, you might respect your boss because they have achieved. In the government that might not be the case. There are exceptions to the rule in the private sector. Nepotism, man woman stuff. In government your boss almost never gets there on merit.

    These jerks that President Trump is forced to hire should, by now, at least know how people like Schiff, Nadler, Pelosi, Schumer and the news media are going to spin anything they say about Russia and the 2020 election into an anti-Trump narrative so they should use precise language and unspin Russian collusion in their opening statements! Ya think!

    Russia, Russia 2.0 is primarily to keep China 1.0 from destroying Mike Bloomberg if and when he faces Trump.

    Don’t forget all the dirt that China has on our esteemed members on the Hill as well.

    When our POTUS begins talking China, they’ll scream he’s trying to avoid talking about Russia….and IF he faces Bloomberg in the General, by God China will be topic 1.

    Did Vlad tell McGuire directly that he is supporting Pres Trump in the 2020 election? Yes? Excellent!!

    If Putin prefers President Trump he’s in good company. So did 63 million U.S. citizens in 2016 – and I hear a lot more prefer PDJT to the democrats in Congress and the democrat presidential candidates in 2020.

    Hee, hee, hee. The DIMs have scrapped their Google Form backup plan in the Nevada Caucus. Must be Russia’s fault.

    The new backup plan is to use an abacus to count votes. Any DIMs know how to use an abacus? Sounds like foreign interference to me.

    I fail to see what the big deal is about the non revelation that Russia likes to interfere with our elections process..
    The CIA has been interfering in elections around the world for over a hundred years with the blessings of the American gov. Not only has the CIA interfered with many foreign elections, they have outright changed the election outcome in many cases..
    To me all this dust up over election interference is just a lot of misdirection and garbage B.S.
    How can a knowing person take a politician or MSM source that is crying about Russian interference seriously when the U.S. government does the very same thing it is so loudly complaining about.
