CNN has proven time and time again they cannot be trusted to deliver real news.
The network’s hatred of Donald Trump is driving all editorial decision-making.
And one legal expert shredded CNN after the bold move that Trump just made.
The Democrats and their propaganda arm of the so-called mainstream media have been pushing the Russian collusion hoax for four years.
Special counsel Robert Mueller hamstrung the Trump administration for nearly two years in a witch hunt where Trump associates were charged with absurd process crimes.
The Democrats created a conspiracy theory based on opposition research from a Hillary Clinton ally.
Much to the dismay of the Democrats, Mueller’s investigation proved no collusion, but many lives were ruined in the process.
One of the people ensnared in the Russiagate hoax was Trump supporter Roger Stone.
Trump recently commuted Stone’s sentence, sending the entire left into a furor.
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said the commutation was “the most corrupt and cronyistic act in all of recent history…This is simply not done by American presidents. They do not pardon or commute sentences of people who are close to them or about to go to prison. It just does not happen until this president.”
This is entirely wrong.
Legal expert Jonathan Turley, a professor of law at George Washington University, called out Toobin and brought the receipts.
Turley is actually a liberal, but he’s an old-school liberal who still believes in due process and rule of law – in fact, Turley testified in favor of Trump during the manufactured Ukrainegate hoax.
Turley pointed out that several presidents in recent history have executed commutations far worse than anything Trump did.
Turley believes Stone should’ve gotten a new trial instead of a commutation, but he still took Toobin to school:
“Bill Clinton committed some of the worst abuses of this power, including pardons for his brother Roger Clinton and his friend and business partner Susan McDougal. He also pardoned the fugitive financier Marc Rich, who evaded justice by fleeing abroad. Entirely unrepentant, Rich was a major Democratic donor, and Clinton had wiped away his convictions for fraud, tax evasion, racketeering, and illegal dealings with Iran.”
Even worse, McDougal could’ve implicated the Clintons in the Whitewater scandal in Arkansas.
Episodes like this are why the corporate press is the enemy of the American people.
They hide the fact they’re partisan activists and pretend they’re delivering real news.
During Ukrainegate, the Democrats and the media went to extremes to shield the identity of the whistleblower because they didn’t want the American people to know he’s a partisan actor with clear animus toward Trump.
The corporate press is entirely broken and can’t be counted on to deliver accurate news – and without accurate reporting, it becomes harder for the American people to make informed decisions.
And that’s how the Democrat Media Complex wants it.
