“Burden is on the people making the accusations” to provide actual evidence of Trump wrongdoing

“Burden is on the people making the accusations” to provide actual evidence of Trump wrongdoing

“Media has done incredible damage to itself” and is “playing out day after day why they don’t deserve to be trusted”

http://www.cnn.com/interactive/2017/01/politics/trump-inauguration-gigapixel/

I was a guest on the Tommy Tucker Show on Louisiana superstation WWL this morning.

We covered a wide range of topics over almost 17 minutes. Thanks to Tommy for giving me the time. 17 minutes in radio world is like a million years in real people time.

We started with the weekend media eruption over Jared Kushner, “Backchannels,” and the Robert Mueller special counsel investigation.

I’ll add some transcription shortly.

“I’m very skeptical about those reports regarding [Jared Kushner], and not just because they’re based on anonymous sources, I mean a lot of things are based on anonymous sources, but just the way they’re phrased, they seem to be phrased in a way to make it seem worse than it is…. “Scrutinized” sounds like they’re suspecting he did something wrong, but that’s not a legal term. “Person of interest” is not a legal term. He has volunteered, this is public, he has volunteered to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee to testify, he’s volunteered to appear to meet with the FBI, it’s been known for months that he had some sort of meetings or interactions with the Russians and with many others, he was the point person for the Trump transition team relations with foreign governments, so that’s not shocking, so what you did did is you have actually no news about him turned into a 4-5 day news cycle about him….”

* * *

“You have a mainstream media which, if you’ve seen the clips of election night coverage, had never accepted Donald Trump’s victory.”

* * *

“We don’t know how this ultimately plays out. We only know what’s been publicly disclosed. What’s been publicly disclosed so far shows no wrongdoing, no criminality, nothing regarding the election or the transition that would cause legitimate concern.”

* * *

“[Backchannels with foreign governments] is completely normal in a transition, in fact Jared Kushner was the designated person to make that reach out to foreign governments, because you don’t want to be sworn in as president and have had no communications with most important foreign governments, be they friendly or not friendly…. Now it would be inappropriate if it crossed over into conducting diplomacy before you’re sworn in as president, because we only have one president at a time, but there’s no evidence that that happened. There’s no evidence that the so-called backchannel to Russia actually was ever implemented…. There’s just a lot of things floating out there that are phrased in ways to make Trump look bad, but when you actually dig down to it, at least based on what’s been disclosed so far, there’s nothing actually wrong with it. And that’s what the whole media cycle has been. And they roll out these new stories day after day after day.”

* * *

“The Media has done incredible damage to itself. They went into this presidency with historically low ratings of trust in the media. And they are playing out day after day why they don’t deserve to be trusted. And that’s not a good thing in the long run, because one of these days they will actually come up with a legitimate truly scandalous story, and nobody’s going to believe them.”

* * *

“We have to go, in my view, based on the evidence that we have, not on the suspicions. And so far there’s been a lot of innuendo, etc. We don’t really know what the relationship was, but I don’t think there’s any reason to presume that it was unlawful or improper in some way. There’s no evidence of that. So again, where I’ve always come back to on this is not that Trump did nothing wrong, it’s that the burden is on the people making the accusations and innuendo to give us actual facts, give us actual evidence….”

What?…innocent until proven guilty? What party are you from?

    You must be a Trump apologist!

    Look at the mountains of circumstantial evidence!

    And all these stories from courageous anonymous sources — where there’s this much smoke, there must be one heck of a fire!

      You forgot your snark tag.

      Yes, yes, and when the MSM isn’t calling Evil a good thing, and Good an evil thing, they’re busy running cover for their Pay Masters.

      Case in Point (some good reading): “The Paris Climate Treaty has nothing to do with “climate” and everything possible to do with economics, globalism and the controlled redistribution of economic wealth as constructed through decades of advanced policies of multinational financial interests.

      There are factually TRILLIONS of dollars at stake.

      When you consider the pontificating pearl-clutching from the financial and industrial elites, ask yourself this very basic question:

      If Elon Musk (Tesla), Tim Cook (Apple), Larry Page (google), Mark Zuckerberg (facebook), or any of the myriad of multinational executives really cared about “climate change”, then why are they doing business in China?

      The primary concern for every affiliated entity surrounds economics, not climate. “Climate” issues are the Trojan horse, the false ruse, the talking point, the scheme to get economic systems in place -yes, political systems- to control the distributive flow of larger economic wealth within all nations. Period.

      What ObamaCare was to your loss of healthcare individualism, so too is the Paris Treaty a political tool to deconstruct national economic individualism. FULL-STOP……”

The left are faithfully, notoriously, adherents to Pro-Choice moral and legal precepts. He is presumed guilty, unworthy… they are not seeking an impeachment, but rather an abortion under their quasi-religious doctrine.

You are soooooo last administration William!!

Funny how none of the msm was the least bit curious about Barry’s ACTUAL REAL back channel communications with Iran isn’t it. Why it’s ALMOST as if the msm COLLUDED with Obama to keep EVERYTHING about Iran off front pages and tv’s to help Barry arm the mullahs in Iran against their shared enemy Israel.

HE’S A WITCH! A WITCH I SAY, A WIIITCHHH!

AND WHAT DO WE DO WITH WITCHES? WE BURN THEM! BURN THE WITCH! BURN THE WITCH WE SAY!!!

“What do Never-Trump conservatives and Republicans want to happen?”

They want to be invited to act as the token Republican on the Sunday morning chat shows.

The Left can’t win a fair fight anymore and anyone without brain damage knows it. Nothing is safe, no price too high nor lie too big in their quest for control.
Any other tactic, and likely even this one, will get them moar Trump!

“Facts?!? We don’t need no stinkin’ facts!!!”

No one seems to wonder how it is that the media published the revelations from a monitored communication to Moscow? Doesn’t that announce to the world that we have broken the Russian diplomatic communications code? This is not a big deal?

Or was the communication NOT encrypted? In which case, why not – did the Russians WANT us to pick it up and run with it?

So either the media have made public some extremely sensitive intelligence about Russian code-breaking, or they have been trolled hugely.

It’s a very simple legal point. When your name is Donald Trump and just won an election that was rigged against anyone not named Hillary or Jeb by running on the OFFICIAL Republican platform AND MEANING IT (hello Never Trumpers?), being president is an impeachable offense. Everything he does is incriminating.

To ” Notamemberof : These ” Never Trumpers,” wanted another ” Patsy, to run. All of the money ” Rinos,” and people in sync with the “Clinton Crime Family,”spent and ballot stuffing, to no avail. She was promised the ” Presidency in ’08, if she let Oblamo get the nomination. She was here to collect on that promise. ( Never mind the NO qualifications or personal accomplishments.) Only Obama could get away with that. These young people, want a ” Do Over.”
