“Dossier” Fever–page 3 of 3

“Dossier” Fever–page 3 of 3

The drive-bys are in panic mode. Their rolling series of anti-Trump screamer headlines is being ignored by the American public. Ever since their world was turned upside-down on the night of November 8, with Trump’s shocking (to them) victory, they have feverishly tried one narrative after another, all with the underlying delusional message: “This’ll stop Trump! The last 4,739 may have failed, but this one will get him!”

A dossier, compiled by a person who has claimed to be a former British intelligence official, alleges Russia has compromising information on Trump. The allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors.” — BuzzFeed, 1/10/17

  • “BuzzFeed News reporters in the U.S. and Europe have been investigating various alleged facts in the dossier but have not verified or falsified them.” — BuzzFeed, 1/10/17
  • “BuzzFeed Posts Unverified Claims on Trump, Igniting a Debate.” — New York Times, 1/10/17
  • “BuzzFeed took a … well-established approach: Release what you can when you have it and see what new leads it generates. If this strategy pays off, the outlet that has morphed … [into] a font of serious journalism could end up with some terrific scoops.” — Columbia Journalism Review, “BuzzFeed Was Right to Publish Trump-Russia Files,” 1/11/17
  • “cnn has confirmed that the [dossier] synopsis was included in the documents that were presented to Mr. Trump but cannot confirm if it was discussed in his meeting with the intelligence chiefs.” — cnn, 1/12/17
  • “BuzzFeed’s Decision to Publish Dossier Reasonable.” — headline, Newsday, 1/12/17
  • “…[T]he information in the dossier, even if not true, has very legitimate reasons to be taken seriously.” — John Ziegler, Mediaite, 1/13/17
  • “Trump’s irrational love for Vladimir Putin and his inability to accept that Russia was destabilizing our election justifies the publication of the dossier … [It] leads one to believe Russia just might have something on him.” — Daily Kos, 1/15/17
  • “Why So Many Journalists Are Mad at BuzzFeed.” — headline, Washington Post, 1/12/17. Journalists were thrilled at the hit-job, but threw BuzzFeed under the bus when the dossier was exposed as bs.
  • “That [dossier] is a garbage document. It never should have been presented as part of an intelligence briefing … Trump’s right to be upset about that. I think … those intelligence chiefs … made a mistake here. And when people make mistakes, they should apologize.” — Bob Woodward, on “Fox News Sunday,” 1/15/17

Delegitimize Fever

  • “I don’t see any other way than to vote again.” — Robert Baer, former cia operative, on supposed Russian “interference” in the election, on cnn, 1/10/16
  • “Keith Olbermann: We Can Still Delegitimize Trump By Not Calling Him ‘President Trump.’” — Real Clear Politics, 12/19/16
  • “Remedy for Russian Meddling Should Be New Election.” — headline, The Hill, 1/11/17
  • “[Democrats and liberals] are hoping … that this unelected faction in Washington [i.e., U.S. intelligence agencies] will undermine and subvert and destroy the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s Presidency before he’s even inaugurated and I think what you’re seeing is actually quite dangerous.” — Glenn Greenwald, left-wing journalist, on Fox News, 1/13/17
  • “Ex-Clinton Aide: Trump ‘Very Insecure’ about Legitimacy.” — headline, The Hill, 1/13/17
  • “Clinton Allies Exact Revenge on Trump: Campaign Aides Flood the Airwaves to Pummel the President-Elect.” — Politico, 1/13/17
  • “Every day there are new developments, new shoes dropping, so to speak, that call into question the legitimacy of his win … I think Donald Trump is just trying to cling to whatever legitimacy still is in effect here.” — Brian Fallon, Clinton campaign press secretary, on cnn, 1/13/17
  • “John Lewis: Trump Is Not a ‘Legitimate’ President.” — cnn, 1/13/17
  • “Obama White House Refuses to Call Trump ‘Legitimate’ President.” — Breitbart, 1/15/17

In December Julia Ioffe, then Politico’s foreign policy reporter, sent a vile tweet accusing Donald Trump of incest. Jeffrey Goldberg, editor-in-chief of The Atlantic, hired Ioffe anyway, praising her as “an indefatigable reporter, a gifted analyst, and an elegant writer and I’m so happy she’s decided to join The Atlantic.”

Typical of the imploding drive-bys — who’ve been wrong about everything, pre- and post-election. They’re already on their next fever: Trump’s “impeachment.” And they wonder why no one pays any attention to them.
