A brief look into Fox News defense [this week] of Trump considering the Russian Probe!
Walter Kirn on Fox News Nework the 6th August 2017 : “Every 6 months people are gonna look up and see this country changed, they’re still gonna be talking about Russia”.
There always certain types of apologist, just as some defend Martin Luther, other defend John Calvin and even some Judas. At this point in the political spectrum as the evidence and the leaks of investigation into the President Trump Campaign of 2016 are hitting the public. There will be drawbacks and be speculations. Certainly, there are hoover-crafts and snipers trying to debunk every single piece of clue or tarnish the investigation. The grandest part of that is the Fox News Network and their allies. Who are embedded with the Presidency. They are not like the rest, who question the evidence and asks why the President and his associates acted like they did. They are like State TV at this point. That is why I have looked into this weeks special efforts to defend Trump. Because it shows the strangeness of it all. Especially, since these conservatives and these patriots would be horrified if Barrack Obama had a collusion practice with a foreign power and with an adversary. However, when it concerning the master and ideal prince of hope Trump, he cannot do nothing wrong, even if he do? Does it matter. The defenses from Fox News, should not surprise anyone. Therefore let’s take a look at just a few!
It’s Okay that the President is a Crook!
“So does it matter to you whether or not the president is a crook? The answer for a lot of Americans may be no. With the revelation that a grand jury is looking at evidence against members of President Trump’s 2016 campaign team, we move closer still to the possibility that someone could be in very big trouble. Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his squad are moving fast, and the likelihood that some charges will be brought can no longer be ignored. It is not hard to imagine a moment in the very near future where some associate of the president is in the dock, charged with misdeeds relating to Russian interference in the 2016 election” (Stirewalt, 2017).
YES, it should matter if the President are a criminal and done illegal activity, he is not above the law. If he worked with foreign powers to gain the presidency, he could be blackmailed and could be forced not to work in the faith of the constitution, but of the will of the foreign powers. That is worrying for any independent office and any state official if they are colluding with foreign powers. If it didn’t matter, why had the National Security Advisor Michael Flynn had to resign just days into the Presidency for the paid work for the Turkish. If that is an issue, than it should be bigger issue if the President are doing the same for Kremlin and the Russians. That is why it matters.
Judge Jeanie defense of Trump:
““Folks, this was a cover-up of an illegal meeting, collusion, between Bill Clinton and the attorney general after which the FBI interrogated Hillary then exonerated her after which Hillary brazenly proclaimed, if she won, she would hire Loretta Lynch as her attorney general,” said Pirro. “So while this country is now virtually paralyzed with fake news stories of collusion, I ask you, what evidence, give me one piece of evidence, one iota of something that Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with the Kremlin. … You haven’t heard one piece of evidence for 8 months, 24/7 collusion between Donald Trump and Russians.” (Baker, 2017).
The investigations, the 6 of them, with even public hearings and questioning has showed no clear evidence. So that the “judge” are still directing and wanting to detain and to criminalize Clinton is just sad. It shows the double-moral of the Fox News Broadcaster, which can address the Clinton’s for their misgivings, but if Trump does the same or even worse. It doesn’t matter, because he is Republicans and Republicans can acts as they like. Trump has questionable connections with Russians, both in business and during the campaign. The ones that are picked to positions are also connected with Russian associates. It is hard not to find anyone who isn’t connected, who hasn’t had agreements and had trades with Russians at some point in the cabinet and in the White House. Everyone has met and done shadow agreement with Kremlin associates. So Judge Jeanie should boggle about that and wonder why there are no-one who are in the public light who hasn’t had something with an oligarch or with anyone associated with the Kremlin to do.
Normalizing “Grand Jury” of Mueller investigation:
“As an old Justice Department reporter, I can tell you this is utterly routine. Prosecutors regularly convene grand juries to question witnesses and gather evidence. It’s what they do. The shocker would have been if Mueller completed his investigation without bringing in a grand jury. In fact, as the Journal story notes, there already was a grand jury, across the river in Alexandria, that the FBI was using in this case before Mueller was appointed. But in the public mind, “grand jury” is associated with “indictment.” And notwithstanding the old adage that a prosecutor can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, the former FBI director could conclude that nothing in the case rises to an indictable offense—at least as far as the president and his inner circle. We have no way of knowing that, and neither does Mueller” (Kurtz, 2017).
This is the only little sense from the Fox News commentators. Since it is an ordinary thing to do, but not with an investigation into a President. Since the Grand Jury are signaling that the prosecutor planning to dig deeper and look into Trump and his associates with more subpoena’s, where he can legally get more paperwork and more evidence for criminal conspiracy. This is not a short-con, but taking down a long-con. Who has not been open with business transactions and Trump Organization before getting public office. The business model and the transactions done can be in question, since the President never revealed this and might only happen through a criminal investigation.
Katrina Pierson on Fox News on the 6th August 2017 said: “There has been no evidence found. Even Democrats are saying we have no evidence. Collusion is not a crime”.
He has been sued over 1000 times for all sort of financial tricks and frauds. Still, the vision of a clean business are not something that seem likely, if so, he would have released the IRS Tax Returns like the Clinton’s did within their campaign. There are some secrets that will reveal some shady stories the Trump family and associates wants to hide from the public. Peace.
