The Deep State’s war on Trump is heading toward a conclusion.
Anonymous leaks have fostered an environment where Americans believe the President himself is under investigation.
But one new statement just crushed the Deep State’s biggest lie about Trump and his family.
America was rocked by a Washington Post report that special counsel Robert Mueller was investigating Donald Trump for obstruction of justice.
The report was sourced to anonymous “officials” close to the investigation.
This was followed by a second Post story claiming Mueller was digging through the business dealings of Trump’s son-in-law and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner:
“Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is investigating the finances and business dealings of Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, as part of the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter…
… The Washington Post previously reported that investigators were scrutinizing meetings that Kushner held with Russians in December — first with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, and then with Sergey Gorkov, the head of a state-owned Russian development bank. At the time of that report, it was not clear that the FBI was investigating Kushner’s business dealings.
The officials who described the financial focus of the investigation spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.”
Leakers fed reporters stories that suggested Trump and his family were a collection of corrupt criminals.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein responded to these stories with a highly unusual statement cautioning Americans not to believe stories based on anonymous officials.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appeared to be taking issue with recent Washington Post and New York Times stories that President Donald Trump himself is now the subject of an obstruction of justice probe, as well as a separate new report from the Post that Mueller is looking into White House senior adviser and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner’s finances.
Rosenstein’s statement, though, mentioned none of the reports specifically. Instead, he criticized articles that were attributed to unnamed officials.
“Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous ‘officials,’ particularly when they do not identify the country — let alone the branch or agency of government — with which the alleged sources supposedly are affiliated,” Rosenstein said. “Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations. The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations.”
This would not be the first time the Washington Post and other media outlets were caught running fake news leaked to them by shadowy anti-Trump forces.
Previous reports about Comey asking for more resources for the Russia probe before being fired, Rosenstein threatening to resign and Comey being prepared to contradict Trump’s claim he told him three times he was never under investigation were all proven to be fake news.
The so-called “mainstream” media’s poor track record of running stories that turn out to be debunked, plus Rosenstein’s statement, should caution every American not to believe what they read in what Trump calls the “fake news media.”
