So, Will Jake Tapper's Top Stories Be About Veterans Today?

A commenter asked that.

I think he'll have all kinds of topics to cover besides the revelation that CNN employee James Clapper leaked a highly classified briefing to CNN, and then CNN published a #FakeNews story dutifully relaying Clapper's dishonest denial of having done so:



I've noted that before, too: CNN knew damn well that Clapper was leaking to them, yet CNN ran Clapper's false claim he wasn't leaking to anyone and ran it as if the fact were true -- or, at least, they did not contradict it.

See this from Sean Davis, too -- a long time ago he reported that Feinstein's former staffer was now running the post-election Fusion/Steele effort.

It's now being reported in the Congressional Russia report that Feinstein's former staffer hired Fusion and Steele -- and raised fifty million to do so.

CONFIRMED: Former Feinstein Staffer Raised $50 Million, Hired Fusion GPS And Christopher Steele After 2016 Election


A declassified congressional report confirms that Daniel Jones, a former intelligence committee staffer for Sen. Dianne Feinstein, hired Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele to push the Russian collusion narrative against Donald Trump.

APRIL 27, 2018 By Sean Davis

A declassified congressional report confirms prior reporting by The Federalist that Daniel Jones, a former staffer for Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), hired Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele after the 2016 election to push the anti-Trump Russian collusion narrative.

According to the report, Jones, who runs an investigative outfit called the Penn Quarter Group (PQG), told the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in March of 2017 that he had retained the services of Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele to "continue exposing Russian interference" in the 2016 election. Steele is the former British spy who authored the infamous unverified dossier of allegations against President Donald Trump.

Some observations:

1, The Federalist is a frequent reporter on Fusion GPS -- and not in a positive way.

2, According to William Brower, who pushed for the Magitsky Act after a Russian friend of his was murdered in prison after complaining of actors connected to the Russian government stealing money, Fusion has reporters apparently loyal to them that push Fusion narratives and attack Fusion critics. (BTW, Fusion is of course the most prominent American actor pushing for the repeal of the Maginsky Act -- in other words, Fusion works for the Russian government to spread Russian propaganda and advocate against sanctions against Russian oligarchs to protect the Russian government against penalties for crimes and murders.)

3, There is now a campaign being pushed on Twitter: #WhoFundsTheFederalst. The campaign seems designed to suggest that the Federalist, like Fusion itself, is a paid propaganda operation for Russia.

Some questions:

Who the fuck cares who funds the Federalist? Seems to me the only way you could get to me to care who funds the Federalist is if you paid me cash money to care who funds the Federalist.

Now I like the Federalist a lot, but they're not exactly a household name.

Where is all this interest in slandering The Federalist coming from? Who is this personally concerned about the Federalist?

Who funds #WhoFundsTheFederalist?
