The mainstream media attack apparatus is engaged at full throttle, vacillating between assassinating FBI Director James Comey’s character and perpetrating bald-faced lies, like the one delivered by MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Thursday.
Mitchell propped up a key Clinton talking point Thursday, claiming Hillary Clinton is “not under criminal investigation.” This has been a lie repeated by Clinton surrogates. The very purpose of the FBI is to investigate crimes. The bureau’s investigation into Hillary’s mishandling of classified information is, by definition, a criminal investigation.
Mitchell disgraced herself yet again when she interrupted coverage of a Donald Trump campaign rally to “fact check” the candidate for addressing Comey’s recent announcement that he’d re-opened the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information.
“She’s [Clinton] not under criminal investigation,” Mitchell lied. “In fact, it’s not an investigation.”
“It’s just a review of the e-mails. She did not lie to the FBI, according to James Comey. There was no grounds to prosecute her. So there are no lies, there’s no criminality.” She fretted: “I don’t know even where to start….but I mean, we have to put it in some context.”
