Last night, as I enjoyed a couple old McGyvers with a frozen pizza (3rd cheat day I've had, give me a break), I thought to myself, if we don't see a concerted effort to diffuse this tomorrow, with top level Dems all saying the same thing (for an example that the old media prints exactly what they are told, click here); we'll know there is something to this.
As of this morning, the only two people on my Twitter feed to vehemently deny wrongdoing? Jon Favreau (who sold his soul years ago and was not fired for this, if Obama killed someone, Favreau would say they deserved it) and celeb chef/restaurant owner Mario Batali.
Even then, Favreau used the same "did not order it" that Obama's statement did. When pressed by others, he acted as if the president is completely unaware of what and who our intelligence agencies are doing. Then he would say "did not order it" again.
So, this morning on the Sunday shows, the main person speaking out at length was Jim Clapper, who perjured himself to Congress, who denied Trump was the target, but not that the tap had taken place. The word choice is not accidental here.
We're on like mile one of a marathon here, but this certainly has the potential to be a history book worthy event. In the 30 hours since the Trump tweets, the lack of outrage and a consistent planned denial, using the same words like the above link on Conway; certainly does not imply innocence.
Note the sudden lack of concern about Trump's tweeting. He bypassed the old media, who are still trying to figure out how to best spin this, and I doubt the timing was coincidental...a SAT morning, when all the Dem operatives were spread out all over the east coast. It took time for them to get together, talk, and decide on their counterattack, even with technology.
A couple links to you to peruse on this day of rest:
A nice recap of what we supposedly know...a difficult task knowing intelligence and national security is involved.
From a year ago, but lots of this suddenly sounds very familiar.
