Fiona Hill, the Brookings Institution sapient who served for a while in the Trump administration, finally emerged from the fog last month. In a New York Times op-ed, she noted that while Kremlin diplomats unpersuasively tried to deny meddling in U.S. politics, the Russians very persuasively pointed out that Americans turned molehills into mountains to serve their own grubby domestic agendas.
The full truth, were it known, likely would be so embarrassing, so discrediting, to the CIA and FBI that neither would survive without a major keelhauling. Even the Trump-hating former FBI counterintelligence deputy Peter Strzok, in his new book, has no doubt whose meddling changed the 2016 election outcome. It wasn’t Russia’s, it was the FBI’s.
The saddest part: So bamboozled and neurotic is our press, because of its anti-Trump virtue signaling, that it now angrily demands that the public be kept in the dark about matters that are the definition of news. The New York Times, the New Yorker and ABC News once led in exposing Hunter Biden’s history of trading on his father’s public status. Now they seek to suppress the story to protect Candidate Biden.
