Thursday's HOT MIC
Count me as one who doesn't believe there is anything at all to the Russia story. Nada. Zilch. I don't believe McGabe's testimony that this is a "highly significant FBI probe."Not for a second. Probe of what? Other than hacking, which goes on all the time and some people should learn how to defend themselves, what exactly has happened? Oh, yes, the ever-evil Mike Flynn blabbed to the Russian ambassador. But what did he say exactly? Here's my bet (and I'd give odds): it's something like "those sanctions will be on the table after the inauguration." Which of course they would be because that's what sanctions are for. You make them to get your adversary to do something. Your adversary does it, so you lift them. He doesn't, you don't. That one gets about three dozen "dubs." (More important and more dangerous than Pinocchios.) In other words, if I'm right, what Flynn did was basically meaningless and the ambassador, assuming he has an IQ in triple digits, would have known it anyway. It may have gone a little further than that, but not much. This entire brouhaha engulfing Washington is about nothing. Trump, unfortunately, doesn't seem to have the skills to defuse it. Or his adversaries are too insane to make that possible. More likely a fusion of the two.
And then the media -- specifically the NY and the WaPo -- can't stop lying about what happened. Every time you see an unnamed source, you know straight away -- it's a lie.
