Wow, not a word from @SharylAttkisson on this. It’s almost like she doesn’t care enough about the facts of what she writes about to ask about them. #whoknew?
So here’s an interview with myself about every fact about me and this conspiracy theory contained in her article. I put this out there not because it’s interesting but because if Comet Pizza and QAnon show anything, it’s that it’s not a good idea to let conspiracy theories fester
Q: Had you ever heard of Peter Strzok when you wrote your #CoalitionOfAllDemocraticForces article?
A: No
Q: Had you ever heard of Lisa Page when you wrote your #CoalitionOfAllDemocraticForces article?
A: No.
Q: Have you ever spoken to either of them about an “insurance policy” of any kind?
A: No.
Q: Have you ever spoken to @Comey about an “insurance policy” of any kind?
A: Nope but he will be my first call if I ever become a State Farm agent.
Q: So it was a total coincidence that you used a common phrase in an article in roughly the same context as Strzok used it in a text to Page?
A: Yup. Imagine that. 2 people independently suggesting that Donald Trump was the kind of thing you might buy insurance to hedge against
Like a natural disaster or a health crisis—or death. It’s a real shock that this common metaphor might occur to more than one person.
Q: Is your activity part of some kind of “insurance policy” against Donald Trump’s Presidency?
A: I certainly hope so. The policy even has a name. It’s called democracy.
