The ‘Deep State’ Unmasked: Joe Biden Targeted Trump Aide Gen. Flynn

Posted on | May 14, 2020 | 2 Comments


Remember when anti-Trump rhetoric was about his supposed violation of “norms”? Remember when Trump’s criticism of hostile media was considered a threat to a free press? Yeah, forget all that:

The director of rapid response for former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign called CBS News senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge a “right-wing hack” in a tweet that was later deleted.
Andrew Bates criticized Herridge in the deleted tweet for her exclusive reporting obtaining acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell’s notification to Congress.
The notification contained a list of dozens of former Obama administration officials who reportedly asked for documents that led to the identity of former national security adviser Michael Flynn being “unmasked” from intelligence reports between the 2016 election and President Trump’s inauguration.
A copy of the list, later obtained by The Hill, includes Biden and former White House chief of staff Denis McDonough. . . .
“Attacking the press and attempting to intimidate independent media is a standard part of the authoritarian playbook,” Biden said in a statement earlier this month. “Efforts to undermine public confidence in the integrity of fact-based reporting violate our core American values and threaten our very system of government.”

As recently as May 3, the Biden campaign considered it “authoritarian” to criticize “independent media,” but when the media reports that Biden was part of the Obama administration’s illegal surveillance of their political opponents, suddenly the standards change. You are a “right-wing hack” if you think it was wrong for Biden to exploit the U.S. intelligence apparatus as a weapon against Trump’s incoming administration by “unmasking” Gen. Flynn’s communications.

They think we don’t see this. Democrats think the American people are too stupid to understand what’s happening here. I hope they’re wrong.
