Much like yesterday, at tad of Russiagate and a ton of Biden Crime Family antics. I'll deal with the Bidens in subsequent post. From Politico,
FBI agents urge Biden and Trump not to fire Christopher Wray
"Democrats, as well as many Republicans, on Capitol Hill have largely endorsed
Wray as a straight-shooting, apolitical and effective leader of the FBI." I'm
sure the ones who were deeply involved in the misuse of the FBI to go after
Trump appreciate the cover that Wray has provided. WaPoo has the story too:
FBI association calls on Trump, Biden to keep Wray as director. Oh, it's an association? Remembering O’Sullivan’s Law:
O’Sullivan’s Law states that any organization or enterprise that is not expressly right wing will become left wing over time. The law is named after British journalist John O’Sullivan.
The only other news, that I'm grouping loosely under the Russiagate banner is the revelation that the 'famous' "Anonymous" who wrote the NYT op-ed saying that he and many other high level members of the administration were opposed to Trump and were trying to subvert his goals, has finally outed himself. He turns out to have been Miles Taylor, who's highest title was Chief of Staff to the Secretary of Homeland Security. Not so high level. When asked by Anderson Cooper on CNN if he was "Anonymous" he denied it, and let Victoria Coates take the rap in the press. TNP, Famed ‘Anonymous’ Trump Official Is Actually Junior Staffer Who Never Worked W/ POTUS
The former Chief of Staff to the Secretary of Homeland Security from 2017 to 2019 claims to be “Anonymous” – the author of a 2018 article “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration.”
“I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations,” he wrote for The New York Times.
Now, however, Taylor is stepping forward as the author of the piece. Taylor recently made headlines for publicly endorsing Biden for President, as part of a Republican Voters Against Trump-backed effort.
Taylor has also appeared on several Lincoln Project videos.
The article garnered considerable traction in establishment circles, bolstering mainstream media’s claims about President Trump as an incompetent leader. Taylor’s claims, however, are undermined by the fact he was a junior staffer in the administration who never worked directly with President Trump.
John Sexton at Hot Air, Former Homeland Security Official Outs Himself As ‘Anonymous’ (Update: Will Remain As CNN Contributor), AllahPundit at Hot Air, Trump: I Was Worried This “Anonymous” Sleazebag Might Be Hope Hicks Or Jared Kushner, Ace, Former "Senior Administration Official" (According to the Media) Who Penned Anti-Trump Diatribe As "Anonymous" Reveals Himself... and It's.. a Nobody
When this mid-level bureaucrat first wrote his screed in the New York Times, Trump suggested it was a mid-level bureaucrat.
CNN's Chris Cillizza said no way it's a mid-level bureaucrat, Trump You Demon Liar, because the New York Times would never publish a mid-level bureaucrat and claim he was a "senior administration official."
So is CNN going to retract and correct now? Will it admit the New York Times straight-up lies?
Miles Taylor was a low level policy advisor within the Department of Homeland Security when he wrote the op-ed for The NY Times; he later became spokesman for DHS under Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. A DHS “policy advisor” is a long way from a “Senior Administration Official…. and even the far-left loons are now left rolling their eyes at the revelation.
The Anonymous op-ed, and the resistance claims constructed therein by the newspaper, was a complete snow-job by the New York Times in an effort to intentionally frame a false narrative against the Trump administration.
Knowing the truth of their false presentation is now stark and admitted, what does that say about all of the New York Times reporting using anonymous sources?
And the delightful Molly Hemingway at Da Fed demolishes him and the NYT in New York Times’ Miles Taylor Op-Ed Shows Everything Wrong With Anonymous Sources. A small quote, but read it all!
I don’t care about the stupid book. I wonder, though, what kind of man let’s @VCGCoates45 twist in the wind, knowing he’s the author and she’s being savaged over something that, if he had any honor, he could have spared her by just being a man and taking ownership.— Andy McCarthy (@AndrewCMcCarthy) October 29, 2020
So Taylor was neither a senior administration official nor a principled conservative. The only thing that is really known about him is that he is capable and willing of lying, as he did on air when asked by Anderson Cooper if he was “anonymous.”
If The New York Times was willing to lie about how high-level its anonymous source was for their very high-profile September 2018 information operation, imagine the lies they’re willing to tell about all the other anonymous sources they use.
If the New York Times is willing to deceive readers about how high this author’s perch was, imagine how much other papers and media outlets are willing to lie in support of their anti-Trump narratives.Every time you read in an outlandish Big Media narrative that an anonymous source is “senior,” interpret it as “junior.” And if the reporters don’t even bother with that level of characterization, assume it’s someone they met on the street.
