Former FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday. He talked about President Trump’s behavior with regards to Michael Flynn, his Russian investigation pre-firing, along with other topics. There was one portion of the testimony that stood out big time. Marco Rubio destroys Comey. “Why was everything leaked but this one thing?” Rubio asked.
There has been a massive amount of leaks to the public. Yet somehow it was not leaked that President Trump was not under investigation.
Per The Daily Wire:
“You know, this investigation is full of leaks left and right. We’ve learned more from the newspaper sometimes than we hear in these open hearings for sure,” said Rubio. “Do you ever wonder why of all the things in this investigation the only thing that’s never been leaked is the fact that the president was not personally under investigation, despite the fact that both Democrats and Republican leadership of Congress knew that, and had known that for weeks?”
“I don’t know,” answered the former FBI director. “I find that matters that are briefed to the Gang of Eight are pretty tightly held in my experience.”
Perhaps this has something to do with it.
Because there is a concentrated effort by the media not to vet, but to bring down The President of the United States. https://t.co/MkiQ8Q99xi
