The Weekly Standard was once a credible source for honest information, but in the last 2 years has transformed into a swampy diatribe of bilious, never-Trump gruel.
We’re sorry to be an audience to such a low end for what was once a beacon of truth.
Their latest editorial regarding the Mueller investigation is a travesty of journalism, with every paragraph containing questionable omissions or dishonest innuendo, in an effort to build their case that the special counsel was legitimate, but needs to wrap things up.
The editors assert Rosenstein was right to appoint a special counsel, but fail to note that legislation mandates a special counsel appointment only WHEN A CRIME EXISTS but no such existence or proof of a crime was established at its inception.
The first paragraph cites his order to “ensure a full and thorough investigation of the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election…” but never notes in the article that ‘full and thorough’ should have included any Democrat effort…
…and never mentions discovery of proven Democrat collusion that Mueller’s ignored.
Only through omissions and innuendo can this article reach the conclusion that special counsel was warranted, and we won’t link to such a deceptive weakly standard…
…that never-Trumpers have sunken to establishing.
Most laughably, its editors bemoan the fact a Republican campaign may have been in any way interested in opposition research during a campaign “…for the purposes of winning an election…” stating “That may not be prosecutable, but it’s not normal.”
Seriously? It’s ‘not normal’ to use opposition research…no matter the source?
We wonder if the Democrats are aware of that new ‘normal’?
The Weekly Standard sets a very weakly standard trying to whitewash Mueller, and as an effort to – once more – tarnish the Trump presidency with a veneer of half-truths.
Pathetic. A hatred so virulent is destroying a once-respected publication.
People – a Democrat administration unlawfully SPIED on an opponent campaign!
As Andy McCarthy notes today “…the (FBI) bureau opened a counterintelligence investigation in the absence of any (a) incriminating evidence, or (b) evidence implicating the Trump campaign in Russian espionage. At the height of the 2016 presidential race, the FBI collaborated with the CIA to probe an American political campaign. They used foreign-intelligence surveillance and informants.”
Hatred can blind – even when it’s the STORY OF THE CENTURY.
