Donald Trump’s firing of FBI Director Jim Comey whipped the Democrat outrage machine up into high gear.
Elizabeth Warren helped lead the outrage with thunderous charges about “cover ups.”
But she told a big lie and it was immediately obvious to everyone.
The so-called “mainstream” media was quick to push a message helpful to Democrats and instantly labeled this firing as the new Watergate.
Warren was quick to hop on the bandwagon and blabbered about how Trump fired Comey to cover up his campaign’s connections to Russia.
The Free Beacon reports:
“Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) said Wednesday there is “no doubt” that President Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey to hinder the bureau’s ongoing investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
CNN reporter Manu Raju interviewed Warren on Capitol Hill about Trump’s decision on Tuesday to fire Comey.
“Do you think this was a cover-up?” Raju asked.
“I think that there’s just no doubt, given the timing, that the reason that Comey was fired was because Donald Trump wants to cut off any investigation into any connections that he has with his campaign and connections to the Russians,” Warren responded.”
But there is no evidence proving any nefarious connections between Trump and his campaign with Russia.
In fact, Trump stated in his official letter firing the FBI Director that Comey told him three times he was not the target of investigation.
And no one has produced any public evidence to back up the hysterical claims made by Warren that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.
In fact, Warren was contradicted by her own colleague Senator Diane Feinstein.
Feinstein, a far-left Democrat from California who sits on both the Senate Intelligence and Judiciary committees, declared she had not seen any evidence of collusion.
The Free Beacon also reports:
“Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday that there is so far no evidence showing collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign aides and Russian officials.
Blitzer mentioned that Feinstein and other colleagues from the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence had visited CIA headquarters on Tuesday to be briefed on the investigation. He then asked Feinstein whether she had evidence, without disclosing any classified information, that there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign.
“Not at this time,” Feinstein said.
“Well, that’s a pretty precise answer,” Blitzer said.”
Warren made two ridiculous claims.
First, that firing Comey would stop the Russia investigation, which is absurd.
Multiple Senators from both parties have stated the inquiry will go on.
And the status of the investigation will be crucial to the confirmation of a permanent FBI Director.
Second, there is no evidence that has yet emerged linking Trump or his campaign to the Russian government.
Democrats may wish these things to be the case.
But there is still no evidence to back up their claims.
