Tucker Carlson was on an epic roll final night time. I caught his present and was sooo impressed by it that I rewound it and had hubby watch as effectively. It was riveting. He went over the entire Manafort indictment. In truth, Tucker stated this was the start of a lobbyist crackdown in DC, which might additionally ensnare Tony Podesta and his lackeys. In that case, that may be a superb factor. However there needs to be a separate particular counsel appointed to look into Hillary Clinton and her dealing on the Russian file and the Uranium One scandal. Mueller has a battle of curiosity and another person must deal with that. Tucker’s largest bomb although was that Tony Podesta is threatening him and Fox Information with authorized motion in the event that they don’t stop and desist. Not going to occur.
That is commonplace for high-powered attorneys. They threatened Tucker over studying details from a letter, which is ridiculous. They said it was a copyright violation. Bwa ha ha ha ha! That may by no means rise up in courtroom. They’ve their panties in a twist as a result of every week in the past, Tucker did a report that claimed former Trump marketing campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Washington, D.C.-based lobbying agency, the Podesta Group, had been the main target of Particular Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into potential Russian interference within the 2016 presidential election. And guess what? They’re. Tony Podesta resigned from his agency yesterday and the corporate is morphing into a brand new entity a la ACORN.
Podesta is blaming Fox Information and Carlson for him having to resign and for getting him in scorching water with Mueller. That’s not Tucker’s fault, you jackass. You made that mattress, now sleep in it. The Podesta Group has been in mattress with Russia for a few years and has made hundreds of thousands in earnings. Manafort labored for each Russia and the Podesta Group earlier than signing onto Trump’s marketing campaign. Tucker says that he and Fox Information have an hermetic paper path and stable details proving all of this. In different phrases, he instructed Podesta and his high-priced legal professional to pound sand. I adore it.
“[T]oday Tony Podesta resigned as head of his firm,” Carlson stated. “His excuse? Us. That’s proper. He blamed us. In his parting assertion, Podesta stated this, quote, ‘It’s unimaginable to run a public affairs agency by Fox Information and the right-wing media. Properly, Podesta isn’t simply complaining about us — he’s threatening us. This afternoon, we received a letter from Geoff Garinther. Its a lawyer with Venable LLP, a giant legislation agency right here in DC. The letter calls for that this present, quote, ‘instantly stop and desist disseminating false and deceptive experiences about Mr. Podesta and the Podesta Group.’”
101 Issues All Younger Adults Ought to Know
by Sir John Hawkins
John Hawkins’s e book 101 Issues All Younger Adults Ought to Know is crammed with classes that newly minted adults want in an effort to get probably the most out of life. Gleaned from a lifetime of trial, error, and writing it down, Hawkins offers recommendation everybody can profit from in brief, digestible chapters.
“It calls for we retract and delete all our prior reporting on the Podesta Group and warns if we don’t do that, quote, ‘Mr. Podesta might pursue authorized motion, together with for damages, in an effort to absolutely defend his rights,’” he continued. “It doesn’t cease there. It additionally warns we’ll face authorized motion beneath the Copyright Act merely for quoting from this letter publicly, as we simply did. Essentially the most amusing line, although, is that this one: Quote, ‘Paul Manafort didn’t work with the Podesta Group in its illustration of the European Centre for a Trendy Ukraine.’ That’s what the lawyer’s letter instructed us. Apparently, that lawyer hasn’t learn the Manafort indictment but.”
Certainly, as a result of it’s all within the indictment, which makes this even funnier. Tucker learn immediately from the indictment that said there was a connection between Manafort and the European Centre for a Trendy Ukraine and went on to declare the community was “not intimidated.” That warms my coronary heart. My hat’s off to Tucker who did a improbable job on all this.
“Podesta’s lawyer wasn’t making an attempt to tell us of something, however to threaten us — to close down our reporting on his shopper,” Carlson added. “One lawyer we talked to earlier right this moment stated the Podesta folks have used this tactic with others earlier than. It’s widespread — it’s an effort to make use of worry to manage press protection. We aren’t intimidated. We’ve got ample proof from Mueller’s indictment, from plenty of confidential sources to color a reasonably clear image of precisely what the Podesta Group was doing for years right here in Washington. We’ll let the details communicate for themselves. And we’re assured the Mueller investigation will likely be revealing much more about Tony Podesta’s lobbying practices within the close to future.”
“Within the meantime, in case you’re searching for a abstract of all of this — right here’s the one-sentence Cliff observe to the entire affair: The chairman of 1 main presidential marketing campaign colluded with the chairman of the opposite main presidential marketing campaign to complement themselves by secretly advancing the pursuits of a overseas adversary. That occurred. That’s the swamp they instructed you that wanted to be drained.” Sure, that is the true swamp and all the time has been. For over ten years, Trevor Loudon and I’ve warned in regards to the Russians. They’ve compromised politicians on either side of the political aisle. Individuals are going to be shocked at how awash DC is in Russian and Chinese language cash and affect. Let the video games start.
