If you follow politics you’ll have review about the “scandal” of the “FBI texts.” This liaison involves two FBI employees, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. The span exchanged content messages about all between sky and earth, including presidential candidates. This isn’t really odd, deliberation it was in the center of an election, and they were having an affair. But GOP’ers and Fox News have been trying to make it into something sinful for utterly a while.
And now they consider they have their smoking gun.
The FBI “Secret Society?” to Undermine Trump?
Apparently, one of the content messages pronounced “Perhaps this is the first assembly of the secret society,” and anyone with a teeny tiny clarity of irascibility would take it for what it was: tongue-in-cheek. But not the GOP; they’re going full Dan Brown with Fox News entertaining them on (big surprise!).
Maybe we shouldn’t be too repelled about this since when it comes to “secret societies,” the GOP has a history. No, really, there was a secret society, but it wasn’t in the FBI.
The Real Secret Society in the US Government
On Jan 20th, 2009, the very day President Barack Obama was sworn in for the first time, a organisation of men held a assembly in which they done a agreement to “undermine the presidency,” to use a very adored stream worried phrase.
The participants were the following:
Frank Luntz (Republican Party strategist), Newt Gingrich (former Speaker of the House), Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI), Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA), Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX), Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), Sen. John Ensign (R-NV), and Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ).
These men affianced to retard and hinder President Obama on any and all legislation, and time has positively shown this to be the case. Mitch McConnell even pronounced in 2010 “The singular many critical thing we wish to grasp is for President Obama to be a one-term president.” Luckily, that didn’t go so good for the Ole’ Turtle.
So, the next time a goblin starts yelling about “obstructionism” and “secret societies,” show ’em this article. Maybe it will help (who are we kidding?) to boar a seed of doubt in the worried fen of his mind.
There was a secret multitude to criticise a president, regardless of the good or bad that man did. It just wasn’t in the FBI, nor by Democrats, nor against Trump.
