RUSH: If there were real journalism in America today, there would be questions right now that these real journalists would really want to ask people like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, such as, “President Obama, were you made aware of spying on the Trump campaign while you were in office?”
“President Obama, are you shocked at the possibility of spying on a political campaign in post-Watergate America?” “President Obama, are you supportive of Attorney General Barr’s efforts to fully investigate the reasons for this spying?” “President Obama, if FISA courts were deceived in any way by your FBI, would you characterize that as a scandal — and, if not, how would you characterize it?” “President Obama, when you said that you learned about Hillary Clinton’s secret email server by reading about it in the papers, were you being honest, sir?
“Because we know that you sent her emails on that server knowing full-fledged that it had an address that was outside the State Department.” “President Obama, looking back, are you shocked that the secretary of state would create and maintain a private, poorly secured email server that processed top secret documents for her entire term?” “President Obama, was President Trump correct in his assessment that he was surveilled by your administration?”
Now, for Mrs. Clinton — and you might even think of some better ones for Obama. “Mrs. Clinton, when did you first read the Steele dossier that you paid for?” “Mrs. Clinton, what was your reaction when you saw BuzzFeed actually publish the dossier despite their admission that it had not been verified or corroborated? Did you feel successful?” “As a former first lady, senator, and secretary of state, you are familiar with investigative reports from intelligence agencies. Were you fooled by the information in the Steele dossier? Did you believe what was in the Steele dossier?
“Did you pay for what you knew was not verifiable or corroborate-able in the Steele dossier?” “Who in your organization gave the Perkins Coie law firm the assignment to secure the dossier from Fusion GPS, and were you aware of the assignment?” “If the FBI, DOJ, CIA, and Director of National Intelligence abused their powers, spying on and undermining the Trump campaign, transition, and presidency, would you condemn those actions?”
“Mrs. Clinton, are you at all worried that the Steele dossier can be tied to your campaign and that it was thus knowingly used to secure four fraudulent FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign, or did you feel like it was an eminently successful political operation?” I have to take a break. There are obviously a plethora of questions you could create. But the point is, there isn’t one ounce of curiosity from any reporter anywhere (in the Drive-By side of things) in any of this.
