The Wall Street Journal Communications department calls out ‘Secret Society’ Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) for his lie that FBI text messages show former President Barack Obama interfered in the Hillary Clinton email probe.
The WSJ tweeted: “Texts show FBI employees preparing Obama briefing on Russia; Exchange doesn’t relate to Clinton email probe, as Republican Sen. Ron Johnson suggests.”
President Obama was seeking to be briefed on Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. Fancy that, a president actually giving a damn about the integrity of our elections!
Johnson, who ran with the FBI “Secret Society” conspiracy theory only to have it blow up in his face, is at it again. This latest conspiracy theory imploded within a matter of hours. Every time they go after Barack Obama, they swing and miss because there’s nothing there.
If the people trying to accuse Obama of meddling took the time, they would have realized the dates on the text messages were after former FBI director James Comey had wrapped up the investigation into Clinton’s emails. The second investigation that came about after documents were found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop wasn’t until much later.
These Republicans literally have no shame. They are content to help Donald Trump engage in a cover-up in plain sight. Why? Because he will go along with their agenda to help the rich get richer while screwing the working class and poor Americans.
