(PatrioticPost.com)- White House call logs from January 6 were leaked to the press last week by someone on the January 6 select committee. And according to reports, former President Donald Trump had tried to reach former Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell twice that morning, but McConnell didn’t return the calls.
See how the select committee and the press work together?
The point here is to get Republicans angry with Mitch McConnell during a midterm election season. These people are manipulative and despicable.
But it worked.
Now the pro-Trump crowd is mad that Trump’s two phone calls to McConnell on the morning of January 6 went unanswered.
The media also ran with a lie, claiming that the White House call logs contained a seven-hour gap.
They didn’t contain a gap. The call logs were complete.
But it was only after every mainstream news outlet ran with the lie, that the media corrected the story.
Make no mistake about it, members of the January 6 Select Committee wanted that lie out there as well.
They’ve been trying to prove that Donald Trump was using “burner phones” as a way to cover up the official White House records and hide his involvement in the so-called “insurrection.”
Getting Trump supporters angry at Mitch McConnell in the process is icing on the cake. Anything that gets Republicans fighting Republicans is a benefit to the Democrat Party in an election year.
In the grand scheme of things, McConnell not returning two phone calls from Trump on the morning of January 6 is a minor detail. But for the Trump-hating media, even a minor detail will be blown into a major story if it helps the Democrats’ narrative leading into November’s midterms.
This is why the news outlets that reported on these two unanswered calls quickly recapped the ongoing “feud” between Trump and McConnell.
In its report, Business Insider made a point of citing claims from the anti-Trump book “Peril” by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.
The bogus select committee “investigation” of January 6 is what the Democrat Party plans to run on in the midterms. It is nothing but taxpayer-funded Democrat opposition research.
And happily for the Democrats, the media is more than willing to play along.
