Valerie Jarrett’s Daughter Laura Now On The Get-Donald-Trump CNN Team
In political life, attorney generals sometimes “recuse” themselves even when it leaves a knife in the back of a newly elected president.
In March of 2017, Jeff Sessions recused himself from any investigation into the 2016 presidential election, including the so-called Russia probe, after the Washington Post reported he had met with Sergey KIslyak at least twice in 2016, contacts he was accused of failing to disclose during his heated confirmation hearing.
While recusing himself may have been the easiest way out for Jeff Sessions, it left President Donald Trump in that category best described as a “hard road to hoe”.
“Two months later, Sessions told President Trump in a letter that he had concerns about FBI Director James B. Comey, who was leading an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. Sessions concluded that “a fresh start is needed at the leadership of the FBI.” (Washington Post, July 29, 2017)
“In his letter, Sessions referenced a letter from Rod J. Rosenstein written May 9. The letter argued that Comey should be fired for his actions in handling the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
Trump fired Comey on May 9.”
But for Sessions it was one of those ‘You’re on your own, Mr. President, the whole affair’s much too hot for me’ moments.
Everyone’s ganging up on President Trump who committed the unforgivable sin of defeating power-crazed Hillary Clinton—which is really what the Russia conspiracy probe is all about.
Everyone now includes the daughter of Barack Obama longtime consigliere Valerie Jarrett:
In ‘journalism’, television networks don’t recuse but excuse themselves when they hire political activists with no experience in reporting as television journalists.
Laura Jarrett, daughter of Barack Obama’s top advisor Valerie Jarrett has joined the hit team at CNN in going after Trump via the never-ending Russia/Trump probe.
“The Justice Department on Thursday turned over to congressional committees a closely guarded set of memos that former FBI Director James Comey wrote recounting his conversations with President Donald Trump. (Laura Jarrett, CNN, April 19, 2018)
The Russia/Trump probe is a set-up in which CNN has long played a starring role.
So now Laura Jarrett is in on the act, by being put in a position to ‘report’ on it.
More than her Mom, Valerie Jarrett, are now screeching loudly, “Go, Laura, Go!”
“A source familiar with the matter told CNN that special counsel Robert Mueller’s office was consulted on the release and did not object.” (CNN)
Why are we not surprised?!
Though Jarrett got the byline on the CNN story, “CNN’s Jeremy Herb, Manu Raju and Gloria Borger contributed to this report.” (CNN)
“Thursday’s letter to lawmakers enclosed redacted versions of the memos, with classified information blacked out. Lawmakers will be permitted to review unredacted copies Friday in a classified setting on Capitol Hill. (CNN)
“Comey told CNN’s Jake Tapper during an interview Thursday on “The Lead” that he had no problem with members of Congress reading the memos.
“It’s fine by me,” Comey said.”
Letting Hillary Clinton skate on her email scandal was also Comey-stamped “It’s fine by me”, but it wasn’t fine by millions of citizens who know Big Government corruption when they spot it.
The sticky spider web goes much further than Laura Jarrett, CNN reporter on the pumped-up Russia scandal.
As Valerie Jarrett’s lawyer daughter, Laura is tied into the Obamacare website scandal through her mother:
