    CNN and MSNBC collectively used the word “impeach” nearly 200 times on Friday before the Special Counsel’s office disputed a bombshell report by BuzzFeed News.

    According to a Daily Caller review of TV clipping service Grabien, personalities on CNN and MSNBC used the words “Impeach,” “Impeachment,” or “Impeachable,” 179 times.

    The review included only original Friday programming and ran up until each network learned that BuzzFeed’s report was in dispute — shortly before 8 pm.

    CNN mentioned impeachment 82 times while MSNBC mentioned it a whopping 97 times.

    As we now know, the frothing left has learned that this was an over-hyped nothing burger.

    The news was of course revealed late on a friday, so other leftists will find out about this in the days to come.

    CNN/MSNBC played its viewers for ratings, imo.

    Perhaps now, the other half of America will realize why its called fake news.

    Rachel Maddow interviewed the BuzzFeed editor after the story was reputed by the Mueller team. Buzzfeed is still standing by their reporters. What fools they must be !!

    I wonder if she and Buzzfeed realize that someone on the Mueller team was smart enough to squelch the story before it would cause an internal DOJ investigation. Three different angles of deflection.

    The ONLY place where these reporters could have obtained the information that they claimed was leaked to them is by someone on the Mueller team who then transferred it to an outside source.

    Do they not realize that both Baker and McCabe are in trouble specifically for the crime of leaking? And that Priestap has recently been given immunity for his testimony?

    If the Mueller team is investigated, it will now be conducted by a DOJ with two leaders who won't be scared to find out what has been going on.

    Ah yes, the dreams of impeachment are once again dashed.

    Obviously impeachment is a necessity if the report of MAGA directing someone to lie to Congress checks out. That is what the discussion has been about. It is a serious offense. In fact, it was serious enough to get the normally silent Mueller team to issue a statement.

    Someone on the Mueller team was smart enough to try to provide cover for the stupidity of someone else on the Mueller team.

    But BuzzFeed, with the help of MSNBC, is now blowing that cover out of the water.

    They have been getting away with this stuff for so long that they don't realize that their firewalls are now gone.

    The worst part is that we have millions of "Useful Idiots" consuming the lies and repeating the lies. Gruber was right about Leftists.

    Now that BuzzFeed is not retracting their story, Mueller will have to answer for the leak. It could have only originated from a member of his team.

    This is great news. The new DOJ AG and Whitaker could not have been handed a more easy way and valid reason to open up an investigation on Weissman and several others.

    If President Trump told Mr Cohen to lie to Congress and then he went a lied to Congress then President Trump could be accused of orchestrating obstruction, that's an actual charge. But here's the massive roadblock between that and getting to impeachment: PROOF.

    Mr Cohen would have to admit he lied to Congress, because simply asking someone to lie for you doesn't meet the requirements of orchestrating obstruction - they'd actually have to do it. Now I'm sure Mr Cohen, scumbag tax cheat, is a man of such high moral character that he would willingly admit he lied under oath and welcome a few more years on his sentence. Yea, that makes sense.

    The admission of a lie would have to be verified. Every word he gave under oath in the 2017 Congressional investigation was recorded and the likelihood of him being able to roll back an element of testimony, modify it into being a "lie", and have it hold water is basically non existent because his testimony has already been put under a metaphorical electron microscope. So if a lie was there its practically impossible to reasonably believe it hasn't been found out already.

    But lets say Cohen did manage to slip one past the investigators and the army of lawyers that have been looking for literally anything to nail him and President Trump with. Lets say this lie was told. Now Mr Cohen has to prove that President Trump told him to tell it. Mr Cohen's word is worthless. He is a criminal facing a large prison sentence working with a man (Mr Mueller) that is known to be willing to recommend light sentences for dirt on President Trump (be it true or not). And on top of that he would basically be standing there saying "yes your honor I lied back then but I'm telling the truth now about lying back then". Without solid evidence, some DNA laced signed letter or complete audio recording, this goes nowhere. Its one criminal's word against the US President's.

    And this has all just been an exercise in mental masturbation because Mr Mueller basically came out and said Buzzfeed is fake news so /closebook.

    Robert changed to red and enlarged. My opinion is that is the most vital of the entire statement.
