Sorry, but since only a fool would have believed the Steele Dossier, that leaves the press a ship of fools.
Why? Think this through. Christopher Steele has ultra-high-level contacts in the Russian government from his days at MI-6. These contacts are so high that he has information on an American president that would have been high level and highly classified under Putin.
So, if I’m understanding this correctly, when you retire from MI-6, they let you keep embedded contacts in the Russian government as part of the MI-6 retirement plan? BRAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
You can’t make this shit up! Imagine your job interview with MI-6.
“Besides your monthly pay, our pay package includes health insurance, term life insurance, a 401-k and upon retirement we’ll allow you to SELL CLASSIFIED INFORMATION TO POLITICAL PARTIES TO RIG ELECTIONS.”
In America, when classified information is leaked, we have a debate about the first Amendment. In Russia, they notify the next of kin. They kill all the suspects and sort them out later.
Of course, American media “elites,” with the possible exception of Glen Greenwald and Tucker Carlson have all the intelligence and insight of a 7-month-old cocker spaniel. They’re actually waitresses. They don’t care what’s on the plate, they just carry it from the kitchen to the table and bitch when the tip is too small. So, don’t expect much.
Amazingly, during the last election, their predictions weren’t as accurate as taxi drivers, red necks or women in quilting parties.
I have a simple rule that I follow with politicians. The only real difference between a politician and a prostitute is prostitutes get mad when you call them whores. As to the press, I wouldn’t believe a reporter if he was reading my drivers license back to me.
