Thread on The NY Times disinformation piece starts here.
In the very first paragraph they show their hand. They say the report will fault “low level officials” and THEN tell us about upper level officials as though they should come second.
Clinesmith is identified as the official who altered emails etc, and The NY Times dismisses this act as though it’s no biggie, preferring to focus on “Trumps allies seizing” (Republicans Pounce) Obviously the FBI went into cover up mode, even falsifying emails. He was big on MYE
“DEBUNKED CONSPIRACY THEORIES!” (Trump saw the report and said this AM it was damning on Fox) and The NY Times here tells us that the report is not complete? And could have other findings? It debunks conspiracy theories, although we caution— it isn’t complete. There’s more.
“It doesn’t really say anything. It stokes both sides. No political bias” AKA “We have to say this because we know there’s a TON of damning info in here about political bias, and this gives us cover for not talking about the bad stuff - we say it *may* be there”
“The paperwork for the FISA contained things that should have been left out” AKA “They never should’ve used the Steele dossier to obtain the FISA warrant.” 🙄
Clinesmith took CIA info (assuming) and added his own stuff to it at the end to make it look better. They sent a criminal referral to Durham and THIS friends- is supposedly the ONLY reason we JUST learned that the Durham probe went criminal- “the people said”.
“Apparently” Horowitz thought that these changes were immaterial. So immaterial he referred them for criminal investigation 🙄
As per people, Horowitz said they had enough info to start the investigation, but the “bar is low” As per people.
Joseph Mifsuds attorneys would beg to differ OR he was CIA - I doubt it but either way. In addition? Andrew McCabe testified UNDER OATH that without the Steele dossier there would be NO FISA warrant. This is a puff piece trying to soften the blow.
It remains unclear what other judgements Horowitz will make.. because we saw an incomplete draft and we really have no idea what we are talking about. We are just here to pacify the base we’ve lied to for three years.
We also have no idea what they are going to do to Bruce Ohr and POTUS seems to think there’s something pretty damning in this report as he alluded to Durham.
This is one big puff piece trying to set the stage to minimize the crimes they uncovered. Wait for the report. Read the report. Skipping to the conclusion section will get you NOWHERE. Trust me. I’ve read several dozen of these. You don’t read the last chapter first.
And one more thing- Horowitz ALREADY found bias in regards to the Russia investigation. He announced Strzoks bias in the MYE report.
Also- remember that the entire thing was postponed over a HALF A YEAR because they uncovered so much more— the NYTimes equates this to a big fat nothing burger, maybe. Because they haven’t seen it yet.
The wonderful @Shem_Infinite adds some perspective and concurs with a lot of my points.
