You know, it’s pretty funny. Pretty damn funny, actually.
For the past couple of weeks, the mainstream media has been publishing so many quotes and tidbits from Bob Woodward’s new book, “Fear,” that it makes actually buying the book an exercise in redundancy. And through all of the salacious revelations, the media has instructed us that Woodward is a man of unimpeachable credentials: If he says he talked to these people and these people said what they said about Trump, you can take it to the bank. This is the man who, along with Carl Bernstein, broke the Watergate story wide open. If he says the Trump White House is a cauldron of chaos, you would be a fool to deny it.
Okay, so let’s take them at their word. When Bob Woodward says he’s investigated a matter to the fullest extent possible, his conclusions must be taken seriously.
No wonder no one in the left-wing media, then, is reporting on Woodward’s interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt.
“So let’s set aside the Comey firing, which as a Constitutional law professor, no one will ever persuade me can be obstruction. And Rod Rosenstein has laid out reasons why even if those weren’t the president’s reasons. Set aside the Comey firing. Did you, Bob Woodward, hear anything in your research in your interviews that sounded like espionage or collusion?” Hugh Hewitt asked Woodward.
“I did not, and of course, I looked for it, looked for it hard,” Woodward said. “And so you know, there we are. We’re going to see what Mueller has, and Dowd may be right. He has something that [Trump’s former lawyer John] Dowd and the president don’t know about, a secret witness or somebody who has changed their testimony. As you know, that often happens, and that can break open or turn a case.”
“But you’ve seen no collusion?” Hewitt asked.
“I have not,” Woodward said.
At the end of the interview, just to put dot the i’s and cross the t’s, Hewitt asked the legendary reporter one more time for the record: “Very last question, Bob Woodward, I just want to confirm, at the end of two years of writing this book, this intensive effort, you saw no effort, you, personally, had no evidence of collusion or espionage by the president presented to you?”
“That is correct,” Woodward said.
Where are the headlines?
Where are the left-wing pundits repeating this line for the world to hear (again and again)?
Nowhere to be found. They still aren’t ready to admit that this whole “collusion” storyline is a sham, a scam, and a blight on the American republic. We’re beginning to think that Robert Mueller himself could come right out and say, “Yeah, I got nothing,” and the media still wouldn’t admit that it’s over.
