Biden Spox Melts Down; Insults Journo Who Revealed Unmasking Role As 'Partisan, Rightwing Hack'

Biden Spox Melts Down; Insults Journo Who Revealed Unmasking Role As ‘Partisan, Rightwing Hack’

Update (1745ET): The day just keeps getting better and better. The left is now moving the goalposts, parroting the new talking point that: ‘sure, Biden unmasked Flynn – but that just goes to show how concerned everyone was about him.’

Biden spokesman Andrew Bates, meanwhile, took to Twitter to insult journalist Catherine Herridge as a “partisan, rightwing hack who is a regular conduit for conservative media manipulation…” for revealing Biden’s involvement in unmasking Flynn.

He then deleted the tweet and issued a statement accusing President Trump of “dishonest media manipulation to distract from his response to the worst public health crisis in 100 years,” adding that the documents “simply indicate the breadth and depth of concern across the American government — including among career officials — over intelligence reports of Michael Flynn’s attempts to undermine ongoing American national security policy through discussions with Russian officials or other foreign representatives.”

Somehow their response failed to include why Biden tried to lie on Tuesday about knowledge of the Flynn investigation.

Update (1635ET): It did not take long for the liberalati to try and distract from what just dropped and to turn their cognitive dissonance up to ’11’. None other than Ben Rhodes quickly ranted:

“The unconfirmed, acting DNI using his position to criminalize routine intelligence work to help re-elect the president and obscure Russian intervention in our democracy would normally be the scandal here…”

To which The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel rebuked rather eloquently…

“This is the best they’ve got–to complain about transparency.

But perhaps most notable is the fact the unmasking involved here occurred BEFORE the Kislyak call that was supposedly triggered the move against Flynn et al.

Another riddle we are sure Messrs. Biden et al. will quickly mumble-splain.

A list of Obama administration officials who participated in the ‘unmasking’ of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has been released by Sens. Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley. The names include former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and former Vice President Joe Biden.

The revelation comes after Biden was caught trying to lie about his knowledge of the Flynn investigation during a Tuesday morning interview – changing course after host George Stephanopoulos pointed out his documented attendance at a January 5 Oval Office meeting in which key members of the Obama administration discussed the ongoing investigation into Flynn’s intercepted contacts with the Russian ambassador.

Notably, Obama asked Comey to conceal the FBI’s investigation from the incoming administration.

As we have previously noted, “unmasking” is a term used when the identity of a U.S. citizen or lawful resident is revealed in classified intelligence reports. Normally, when government officials receive intelligence reports, the names of American citizens are redacted to protect their privacy. But officials can request that names, listed as “U.S. Person 1,” for example, be unmasked internally in order to give context about the potential value of the intelligence. Unmasking is justified for national security reasons but is governed by strict rules across the U.S. intelligence apparatus that make it illegal to pursue for political reasons or to leak classified information generated by the process.

Last week, Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell visited the Justice Department with the list of unmaskers, which the DOJ effectively said was up to him to release, according to a Fox News report.

After Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice was outed as the ringleader of an unmasking campaign, the Wall Street Journal reported that she wasn’t the only administration official to participate in Flynn’s unmasking.

The new disclosure comes after the FBI was revealed to have attempted to ensnare Flynn in a perjury trap, despite the agency’s own DC field office suggesting that the case be closed.

  1. Ben Rhodes? The same dork who bragged about deceiving the media? As far as Catherine Herridge, Ive watched her early days as a correspondent at Fox and a cancer survivor. She adheres to her personal code of ethics and nobody tells her what to do or say.

    Yo Benny, for such a bright boy, you just havent seemed to have learned your lesson. Once you hit that send button, nothing can ever really be deleted or retracted.

    1. Bidumbass is an old piece of shit. This cocksucker should hang it up. Nobody but AOCocksucker will vote for the motherfucker.

      1. Great Job Debbie! You are absolutely right, that POS deserves everything you said and more, much more. Thank you for your post.

      2. The only thing you are missing is a cadence to your post that will give rise to a chant for hecklers at events.

        Bribem’s a Lyin piece of shit
        His denials sends him in a fit
        If ever he quits sucking Obama’s dick
        He’ll turn him around, give his ass a lick
        He’s an addict he just can’t quit.

        Best I could do in a couple of minutes.

      1. Biden makes me sick. This creap next to Shithead Schiff is the biggest liar most corrupt politician ever. That’s all he does is lie. I would walk through fire to vote for President Trump. This Country is in trouble if Biden gets in. TRUMP 2020

    1. I think Biden .Brennan .rice.comey.hillary.poloie Nancy pelosi.shift.and OBAMA. NEED JAIL TIME . MAYBE WE SHOULD BRING BACK FIRING SQUADS JUST FOR THEM.
      UNFORTANTELY I WAS A DEMOCRAT WHAT WAS I THINKING THERE DOWN RIGHT EVIL.IM A 30 ARMY COL.AND IM APPULD BY THIS .YOU WILL SEE AS HISTORY WILL SHOW THAT PRESIDENT DONALD J TRUMP WILL GO DOWN AS PROBABLY THE BEST PRESIDENT THIS COUNTRY HAS EVER HAD. DYNASTY HIS SON AND DAUGHTER.?

  2. The Democrats have admitted that Biden is a cocksucking idiot with shit for brains. They have said that Biden is so stupid that he can’t even tie his shoelaces. Plus that he’s an alcoholic and a pedophile. But that doesn’t stop them from supporting the motherfucker. They love him all faults included. They say that he will beat off Trump in the debates.

    1. I don’t see how Biden is going to beat Pres. Trump in a debate, when he can’t even put together a coherent sentence unless somebody writes it down for him to read. He is like his cohort Obama in that, because Obama sounded like a blithering IDIOT, unless somebody wrote what he was supposed to say and put it on the teleprompter for him to read. And as his dementia progresses, it won’t be long before Creepy Uncle Joe forgets how to read!

      Well, not to worry–I’m sure if there IS a debate–highly doubtful–they’ll have Candy Crowley handy to jump in and contradict what Pres. Trump says, if it looks like their senile candidate is floundering.

      1. When it comes to the debates, I suspect that the MSM will treat Biden the same way they treated Hillary. Give him and his team the questions in advance so that they can work up the answers and have them on the teleprompter. That way all the demented POS has to do is read them off. I hope that some independent hacker gets into the system and messes up his responses. Something like, Moderator: “Mr Vice President, What do you see as the biggest challenge this country will be facing in the next four years?” Biden: “I see the biggest challenge as being able to finger-fuck all of the pre-teen girls in the coming years.” (Smile hugely)

  3. Left wing partisan hack. A demented one at that. Calling honest, fact exposing people hacks is just par for the course for the really foul former vp.

  4. AS always a biased news person who claims to be unbiased. Lack values. I guess they accept their kids lying to them cause their only acting like their parent.

  5. Funny how the conniving Demmunists and their media attack dogs always gloss over or ignore details like their “unmasking” of General Flynn occurred BEFORE the phone call that supposedly triggered the unmasking. And their “presumed nominee” being in the meeting at which I have no doubt Obama gave all his flying monkeys their marching orders in how to go after Gen. Flynn and other members of Pres. Trump’s staff, in hopes of “sweating” on of them into giving them something they could use as an excuse to try to unseat Pres. Trump.

    Of course in Gen. Flynn’s case, it wasn’t just about “getting” then-Pres. elect Trump. Gen. Flynn had PUBLICLY denounced Obama calling ISIS “the JV” and helping to arm and finance them, and Obama, being the nasty, vindictive little sociopath that he is, was just looking for an excuse to make Gen. Flynn PAY for having the nerve to point out that the emperor in the White House was bare-a$$ed naked, while everybody ELSE was fawning over him and gushing about how great he looked in his “new clothes.”

    And, finally, they’ve got a LOT of gall calling Catherine Herridge a “right wing partisan HACK” when 98.9% of the “mainstream” media are RABIDLY left-wing “partisan HACKS” who do nothing but LIE when they are not just reading the propaganda scripts the DNC provides them every day.

  6. Catherine Herridge is one of if not the BEST and TRUTHFUL investigative reporter in the business today!!! She tries very hard to not show any bias and gives us the clear unvarnished news. No opinions from her!!!
    Yes, all across the Obama administration people were terrified of General Flynn. He knows the truth of what occurred during the time Obama tried to destroy our country. They all knew he had to be gotten rid of ASAP if all the crap was to remain hidden. KT Macfarland was also targeted to get rid of her too was necessary to keep the skeletons in the closet and the fresh bodies buried(Seth Rich comes to mind). They have succeeded so far. Now it is up to a TRUE PARTISAN HACK JUDGE SULLIVAN to try to keep it under taps.
    Showing just how many partisan political not career Intelligence professionals were involved in unmasking not just General Flynn but many others is very necessary for the healing of this country to begin!!!

  7. first of all biden is so far at the end of the line he thinks he is 1st 2nd this black bastard of a so called judge is nothing more than a lousy cotton field N. FUCK HIM AND HIS MOTHER

  8. I agree with most of what I’ve read here in the comments. I have to admit that I’m surprised that Joe hasn’t added Maxine Waters to his list of possible VP canidates. Wouldn’t that be a winning combination. I hope I didn’t give him any ideas.

    1. JoAnn Debbie didn’t say joe would beat Trump in the debates she said he would Beat Off!(circle jerk) Trump in the debates.

  9. Scares me the most is that the Demonazi’s know that Bumbling Biden is done—they just want to get him in so Obummer (ThirdTerm) would be run from a ‘political bunker’ somewhere. He’s be calling all the shots through Bumbling Joe!!!

  10. Judge Sullivan is a RACIST, supported by Obama,Sharpton ( who owes millions in taxes) Eric Holder ( the fast and furious killer) Spartacus (who ran Newark NJ into ruin) and other Demorats who are after Trump and ANY & ALL of his supporters!!! Trump did more for this country in his First year than the Obunglers(HIM&HIM) did in 8 years! These demorats are TEARING this country apart, and they could care less, its ALL about POWER TO THEM!!!! As long as they keep themselves and their CRONIES in power, F–K the rest of America and their children!!! PEOPLE, WAKE-UP,vote ANTI-DEMOCRAT before its TOO LATE!!!!
