Scorched Earth: This Liberal Reporter Torched His Colleagues' Russian Collusion Peddling

I don’t agree with everything Michael Tracey writes about; he is part of the progressive/liberal slice of the media. He’s open about his biases, however. He’s honest. And he’s worth a follow, despite his defense of Ilhan Omar. Again, I don’t agree with him all the time. Yet, as the liberal media was pushing the Russian collusion myth hard, Tracey was skeptical. He was reserved. And he saw how this narrative was quickly becoming a cuckoo cult. With the Mueller report now submitted and its summary released—the full report will be released soon—it’s quite clear that no collusion occurred. Since the start of this wild goose chase, there’s been zero evidence to corroborate such a loony claim. It was something that half the nation knew already: this was a witch-hunt. And, given the revelation that top DOJ/FBI officials were discussing ways to remove Trump from office via the 25thAmendment. That is coup talk. It brings into maturity the rapid politicization that has occurred within the DOJ over the past decade, which has now leeched into our election process. Yes, it would appear that some election meddling was happening in 2016—and that call was coming from inside the house

With the Mueller report, most of what the media has pushed for the past two years has collapsed. They perpetrated a fraud and that Trump dossier, which was compiled by an ex-British spy, Christopher Steele, was not only exposed as a fabrication—but also a Clinton campaign project. It was opposition research, which was allegedly used to secure a FISA spy warrant against Carter Page, who had served as a foreign policy adviser for the Trump campaign.

Every bombshell the liberal media peddled ended up blowing up in their faces. There will be no apology, no acts of contrition, and no admission that they have irreparably damaged what little credibility the media has left. Tracey went on a scorched earth campaign against his colleagues that pushed this myth. No one was safe—and his Twitter feed for the past couple weeks has been nothing short of brutal to those who wallowed in this garbage. He also said John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strozk, Lisa Page, and Christopher Steele need to be dragged back up to the Hill to explain their actions. 

The Page-Strzok connection tied the FBI to this mess. Strzok was a top counterintelligence agent who reportedly signed off on the probe into Russian collusion in July of 2016. He was engaging in an extramarital affair with Page, a bureau lawyer, exchanged tens of thousands of texts—most of them anti-Trump, and exposed the egregious unprofessionalism emanating from within the halls of the J. Edgar Hoover Building. These two also discussed an “insurance policy” against a Trump presidency, with Strzok flat-out saying that they will stop Trump in a later exchange. The two also voiced concerns that the bureau was going too hard on Hillary during the email probe, another investigation where Strzok was the key player. 

Tracey used to work for The Young Turks and was forced to call out his former employer, saying they went MSNBC-lite with their Russian collusion peddling. And yet, while he’s torching liberal reporters and taking their respective publication to the woodshed for peddling in conspiratorial drivel, he also noted that the continued freakout over Russian collusion continues to do nothing but help the Trump White House. And from the looks of it, the Left cannot let this go. Their emotional attachment, or addiction, won’t allow it.
