Hello darkness my old friend..

Excuse being pushed by high ranking GOP officials to rank & file GOP Reps when indictments hit:

Coordinating all their cons to claim the same excuse when Indictments are unsealed.

"It is not illegal"!!

From the NYTimes article:

The Republicans’ Fake Investigations



"We’re extremely proud of our work to highlight Mr. Trump’s Russia ties. To have done so is our right under the First Amendment.

It is time to stop chasing rabbits. The public still has much to learn about a man with the most troubling business past of any United States president. Congress should release transcripts of our firm’s testimony, so that the American people can learn the truth about our work and most important, what happened to our democracy."

Glenn R. Simpson and Peter Fritsch, both former journalists, are the founders of the research firm Fusion GPS.

An inside look at One America News, the insurgent TV network taking ‘pro-Trump’ to new heights

By Marc Fisher
July 5, 2017

One America's owner, Robert Herring Sr., a millionaire who made his money printing circuit boards, has directed his channel to push Trump's candidacy, scuttle stories about police shootings, encourage antiabortion stories, minimize coverage of Russian aggression, and steer away from the new president's troubles, according to more than a dozen current and former producers, writers and anchors, as well as internal emails from Herring and his top news executives.

OAN, based in San Diego, made its first splash in the opening weeks of the Trump campaign, when the channel became the first to carry Trump's campaign speeches live and in full — a decision followed quickly by the owner's directive that other candidates' rallies not be given the same treatment, according to internal emails.

Since then, OAN has become a reliably sympathetic voice of the administration's goals and actions.
Trump's former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, has a deal to appear regularly on the channel.
The network's White House reporter, Trey Yingst, has become an administration favorite who was called on at the daily news briefings 27 times in Trump's first 100 days in office.

On Friday, OAN won a seat in the White House briefing room, albeit in the back row and shared with the BBC."

"During the campaign, for example, he banned stories about polls that showed anyone other than Trump in the lead, according to emails and interviews with OAN journalists."

"Christopher Wood, one of OAN's first news writers, recalled, "We'd have staff meetings on Wednesdays, and Mr. H. would say he wanted more stories from Breitbart, the Drudge Report and other conservative sites. It was his way or no way."

In 2000, Robert Herring Sr., who is 76, sold the family's business, Herco Technology, for $122 million.
He retired and met a woman in Russia who became his third wife. An insomniac, Herring spent much of his nights watching TV. After a while, he decided to dive into the business himself.

OAN is Trump News propaganda just like FOX.
"Money & Media"

OAN sounds like another RT start-up to move the Kremlin political agenda through US media.
