On today’s show we talk about the reaction to the official firing of disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok. Liberals warn firing a guy who had a demonstrated political bias that tainted to major investigations is somehow an affront to the justice system. But if you can’t fire a Peter Strzok, after a year exposing how his personal animus colored his judgement, no one in government can be fired.
Listen to the show:
Strzok had a long-term affair with a co-worker, Lisa Page, which not only was what ultimately exposed his bias through childish text messages, it also opened him up to potential blackmail. Still, leftists rallied around Strzok, donating more than $200,000 to his GoFundMe page. And that’s before whatever book deal you know he will get. It pays to be disgraced and fired, if you oppose the right people.
CNN spent a lot of time attacking President Donald Trump for his criticism of journalists, saying his words could lead to actual physical attacks on reporters. Yesterday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo came to the defense of Antifa after members of that radical group had physically attacked reporters and police. To Cuomo, “all punches are not equal.” He justifies the violence of Antifa because they “fight hate.” He did so with no sense of irony or, seemingly, sense of self-awareness. We play the audio and dissect it.
