Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

President Donald Trump can only escalate. He cannot help it.

On Thursday night, he spread from his own presidential account a video of the speaker of the House, edited to splice together moments when she stumbled over her words, in an apparent effort to deceive people into thinking her drunk or ill.

In 2016, Trump's Russian supporters performed this service for him with faked videos of Hillary Clinton. Now he seems to have decided that if you want a dirty-tricks campaign done right, you must do it yourself.

At the same time, he has put the declassification powers of the presidency to work as part of a larger campaign of cover-up.

"If Trump's claims had any basis in reality, he would convene an independent commission of respected fact finders. Instead, he has relied on supporters willing to do his bidding -- first Devin Nunes, now William Barr.

The mission he has assigned them: Fight to suppress documents properly subpoenaed by Congress to answer important public questions, then pick and choose U.S. national secrets to defame career professionals who sought to protect the integrity of the nation's elections against foreign adversaries who manipulated those elections in Trump's favor.

Where's the cover-up? This is the cover-up, as the White House and the office of the attorney general collude to conceal what the public deserves to know."

Bernie ran on 'the system is rigged', as evidenced in the Cankle Collusion of 2016.

He will applaud the unmasking of traitors like yourself, your corrupted party, and the upcoming trial of the Witch Hunters.
