This has not been a good week for the senile old cooter Joe Biden.
On Tuesday, he did a softball interview with Clinton guy George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America and he got caught in a lie.
Only a senile dude like Joe Biden can bungle a softball interview.
Stephanopoulos asked Joe about the investigation into Michael Flynn, and Joe said unequivocally “I knew nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn.” Then he went on to claim President Trump was using the entrapment of Flynn as a “diversion” from the Wuhan pandemic.
Stephanopoulos then asked Joe about the January 5, 2017 meeting with James Comey and Sally Yates where Obama told them about Flynn’s call with the Russian Ambassador.
And apparently senile Joe wasn’t expecting a follow-up.
He then tried to bungle his way out of his claim that “I knew nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn” by saying, “I thought you asked me whether or not I had anything to do with him being prosecuted. I’m sorry. I-I-I was aware that there was … that there … they asked for an investigation.”
He answered with the words “I knew nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn.”
Operative word here: Investigate.
Then he claims he thought George asked about Flynn being prosecuted?
I think Joe figured saying “I knew nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn” then accusing President Trump of trying to use it as a diversion would be enough to get Stephanopoulos to move on.
The follow-up clearly flustered him.
He’s a Democrat being interviewed by a Democrat operative after all. Joe had reason to believe his denial wouldn’t get challenged.
Naturally Joe has a built-in defense for contradicting himself in less than a minute. The guy is a senile old coot in the throes of dementia.
And if all that happened was that bungling answer on Good Morning America, Joe probably would be okay.
But yesterday, his problems got a worse when acting DNI Richard Grenell handed over to Senators Grassley and Johnson the list of Obama people who had unmasked Michael Flynn’s name in the waning days of the Obama presidency.
And Double-Oh Senile is on that list.
And here’s the weird part. Joe requested Flynn’s name be unmasked on January 12, 2017 — the very same day that someone illegally leaked the details of the Flynn/Kislyak phone call to the Washington Post.
Hmm. What a coinkidink.
And it isn’t as if we can ask Double-Oh Senile about it. Given that Joe couldn’t remember his answer to Stephanopoulos less than sixty seconds after giving it, I’d say the chances of him remembering what happened on January 12, 2017 is unlikely.
I wonder if his archived records at the University of Delaware could shed some light on it.
The Biden Campaign’s responded to this news by attacking the messenger.
First, Biden’s spokesman Andrew Bates attacked CBS News reporter Catherine Herridge for reporting on the story — calling her a “hack.” Then Bates released a statement accusing Senators Grassley and Johnson of “abusing congressional powers to act as arms of the Trump campaign.” And he parroted Double-Oh Senile’s claim that this whole thing is Trump’s attempt to distract from the Wuhan pandemic.
Like I said yesterday, Joe Biden has much bigger problems than Tara Reade’s accusation against him. Between his and his son’s shenanigans in Ukraine and China, and now his involvement in poking around classified intelligence and unmasking Michael Flynn in his last days in office – not to mention his January 17, 2017 trip to Ukraine — Senile Joe has a lot to answer for.
But let’s be honest. He won’t be asked.
As it is, the very same media outlets that flew into fits of orgasmic excitement over every stupid Trump-related “scoop” that turned out to be untrue are either ignoring or pooh-poohing the release of this list of unmaskers.
The media has been quick to dismiss the news — claiming unmasking happens all the time.
But of course they’re dismissing it and making excuses for it.
Keep in mind, the news media didn’t “report” on the Russian collusion conspiracy; the news media was hip-deep in creating it.
It’s exactly why the Washington Post had no problem abetting a felony by accepting and reporting the classified information on Flynn’s call to Kislyak.
The declassifications now taking place are exposing this collusion between the Obama White House and the American news media.
Double-Oh Senile isn’t the only one who has a hell of a lot to answer for.
The so-called “news” media does as well.
One final note. Watch the following video so you can understand how unmasking works and what restrictions are in place if an American’s name is unmasked.
Then ask yourself, why would Double-Oh Senile need to get Mike Flynn’s name unmasked a week before leaving office?
Just so there is NO mistake this is how unmasking works as explained by the former Director of the NSA Mike Roger who during this time period in question was the head of the agency that does the unmasking. pic.twitter.com/29oqpKrIRI— Roscoe B Davis🎖⭐️⭐️⭐️ (@RoscoeBDavis1) May 13, 2020
But because Obama is the great god and light bringer of the Left, nothing his alleged “Scandal-Free” administration did will be scrutinized by the so-called “free” press.
And because Double-Oh Senile is the Obama folks’ ticket back into the White House, nobody in the press will ask why, seven days before he left office, the outgoing Vice President requested the unmasking of Mike Flynn.
This whole thing stinks to high heaven. It always has.
And something tells me that Ric Grenell has only just begun to uncover the source of the stench.
