Newsmax CEO: Russia Investigation is ‘Allegation in Search of Crime’
The world is finally starting to figure out that the Russia collusion investigation is a sham.
On Sunday, longtime Trump friend and Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy blasted the Russia investigation as a “false, fake, phony allegation of a crime.”
Ruddy told CNN’s Ryan Stelter that he is “very frustrated” with the ongoing Russia collusion probe and that “liberal fears about a conservative candidate shouldn’t warrant a political investigation.” Ruddy added that Trump should “stay away” from the investigation and that firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein would only make matters worse.
Ruddy’s criticism follows the release of a controversial memo written by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA), which in recent days has exposed “shocking” anti-trump bias within the DOJ and FBI.
“We had an unprecedented surveillance of a political campaign in American history,” says Ruddy. “The House Intelligence Committee says that at least 100 members and associates of Donald Trump were surveilled and unmasked. And I think that’s the big story. Why did that go on, based, again, on a phony allegation in search of crime?”
The unmasking story broke last spring, when Nunes accused Obama aides of making hundreds of unmasking requests in order to expose the names of Trump officials in intelligence reports. “We have found evidence that current and former government officials had easy access to US person information and that it is possible that they used this information to achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information,” Nunes wrote in a letter to DNI Dan Coats.
Despite evidence suggesting the contrary, former CIA Director John Brennan and former National Security Adviser Susan Rice have claimed the unmasking requests were made for legitimate purposes.
Author’s Note: Punchingbag Post has followed this circus of an investigation closely over the past 18 months, and our opinion hasn’t changed since the beginning: the investigation was designed to draw attention away from Hillary Clinton’s compromised email server.
Now, people are finally connecting the dots between the memo (which describes bias) and the larger effort to defeat President Trump. And the whole thing originates with the DNC (which is now broke) and the Hillary Clinton campaign, which together paid for a fake dossier against Trump.
