Failed Charade -- Despite MSM media counterspin -- Most of USA "gets it" that Obama Team wrongly spied on Trump campaign
comments and news VIDEO from net, Posted in Politics / National
(JOHN NOLTE of BNS News Service reports) -- An IBD/TIPP poll shows that "Americans overwhelmingly believe the Obama administration 'improperly surveilled' Donald Trump's presidential campaign."
Despite the disgraced American media's best and most cynical efforts to bury and obfuscate the facts, this poll we will quote (and another poll addressed below) indicate the American people are disbelieving the skewed, mostly-hysterical "main stream media" (MSM) and looking to alternative news media for more objective reporting.
The IBD/TIPP poll results unambiguously show that a majority of the public believe the exact opposite of what a coordinated MSM campaign wants them to believe - which is that President Trump colluded with the Russians to win the 2016 campaign and that the heroic, angelic FBI is being unfairly smeared by whistleblowers.
Despite more than a year of this relentless propaganda coming from all four corners of the mainstream media's fabricated reality, here are the polling results from actual reality...
A clear majority of 55 percent believe that the Obama administration "improperly surveilled the Trump campaign during the 2016 election." That includes 31 percent of Democrats, 87 percent of Republicans, and 55 percent of Independents.
A clear majority of 54 percent want a special counsel to investigate "whether the FBI and the Department of Justice improperly surveilled the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election." Only 44 percent said no. The partisan breakdown shows that 74 percent of Republicans and 50 percent of Independents want a special counsel - as do a full 44 percent of Democrats.
Separately ...a just-released Rasmussen poll shows that a full 50 percent of Americans "believe senior federal law enforcement officials broke the law in an effort to prevent Donald Trump from winning the presidency." A lesser 40 percent disagree.
Another Rasmussen poll from this week shows that only 42 percent of Americans believe Russia actually "seriously" meddled in the 2016 presidential election more than the FBI. Moreover, a full 34 percent believe the FBI meddled more than the Russians, while 24 percent are unsure.
In other words, 58 percent of Americans either believe our own FBI meddled in a presidential election more than a hostile foreign government, or are not convinced the FBI did not.

(NY Times Report)-- DOj'er jumping ship for career survival:
Rachel Brand, the No. 3 official at the Justice Department, plans to abandon ship after just nine months on the job at a time when exposes of uncomfortable facts have scandalized the DOJ, FBI, CIA and NSA.
Brand, who was named associate attorney general last May, is bailing for a job in the private sector after working at Justice for the past three administrations.
Brand could have found herself on the hot seat if Trump fired Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing Robert Mueller's hyperbolic "Russia Project".
If Rosenstein were canned, Brand would have been put in charge and could have faced pressure to fire Mueller or shut down his 'investigation'. Looks like she chose to get out of the kitchen as the heat escalates.
