    Kelly Says He Didn't Call Trump "Idiot", As White House Slams Woodward's "Fabricated

    Kelly Says He Didn't Call Trump "Idiot", As White House Slams Woodward's "Fabricated Stories"



    "The idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true. He always knows where I stand, and he and I both know this story is total BS." - John Kelly

    Tue, 09/04/2018 - 15:29

    One of the most provocative leaked passages in Bob Woordward's new book "Fear", was a quote allegedly from Trump's Chief of Staff John Kelly, who reportedly called Trump an "idiot" adding that he had gone "off the rails" and that "I don't know why any of us are here."
    White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly frequently lost his temper and told colleagues that he thought the president was "unhinged," Woodward writes. In one small group meeting, Kelly said of Trump: "He’s an idiot. It’s pointless to try to convince him of anything. He’s gone off the rails. We’re in Crazytown. I don’t even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I’ve ever had."
    It didn't take long for Kelly to deny any of this happened: “The idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true,” Kelly said in a statement distributed by the White House. “He always knows where I stand, and he and I both know this story is total BS.”
    John Kelly's full statement below:
    "The idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true. As I stated back in May and still firmly stand behind: "I spend more time with the President than anyone else, and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship. He always knows where I stand, and he and I both know this story is total BS. I'm committed to the President, his agenda, and our country. This is another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration's many successes."
    Meanwhile, the White House also blasted Bob Woodward new book, calling it "nothing more than fabricated stories."
    The full White House statement:
    "This book is nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees, told to make the President look bad. While it is not always pretty, and rare that the press actually covers it, President Trump has broken through the bureaucratic process to deliver unprecedented successes for the American people."
    "Sometimes it is unconventional, but he always gets results. Democrats and their allies in the media understand the President's policies are working and with success like this, no one can beat him in 2020 – not even close."

    Woodward has sunk so low with this book. Nothing but gossip and potty talk. What a long fall for a once great investigative reporter.

    SAD!!

    And pathetic.

    Sidney Blumenthal: Bob Woodward has been an 'FBI asset' since Deep Throat

    September 13, 2018

    It’s déjà vu all over again: senior unelected FBI officials conspiring with the Washington Post and New York Times to harm and eventually drive from office a Republican president.

    Sidney Blumenthal: Bob Woodward has been an 'FBI asset' since Deep Throat

    By Thomas Lifson
    It's déjà vu all over again, in Yogi Berra's memorable expression: senior unelected FBI officials conspiring with the Washington Post and New York Times to drive a Republican president from office.
    Kudos to Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit for spotting a 2014 State Department email from SecState Hillary's aide Sid Blumenthal that was declassified and released in 2015. In it, Blumenthal states as a fact that Bob Woodward has been an "FBI asset" since the days of Deep Throat. See for yourself:
    Deep Throat revealed himself in 2006 as Mark Felt, who had been the number-two official at the FBI and who was apparently enraged that President Nixon passed him over for promotion to the top spot. Given his senior position there, rather like that formerly held by Andrew McCabe, it might not be so surprising if he actively leaked to the Washington Post duo, and formed a mutual relationship between the bureau and the useful journalists, obtaining revenge while demonstrating the fearsome power of the FBI over elected officials.
    It might also explain why Woodward's latest book, Fear, is such an attack on President Trump.

    Bob Woodward in 2016 (via Wikipedia).
    Thanks to Sara Carter's latest scoop, we know that the FBI lovebirds Strzok and Page were playing the same game with the same newspapers that broke Watergate via leaks:
    A series of text messages released Wednesday reveal that former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok was in contact with reporters at the New York Times and Washington Post regarding stories they published about the FBI's investigation into alleged collusion between Russia and President Trump's campaign during the spring of 2017, according to a series of texts obtained by SaraACarter.com.
    The text messages suggest that Strzok, along with his paramour, former FBI Attorney Lisa Page, had been in contact with reporters from both newspapers. Strzok specifically mentioned two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times writer Michael Schmidt his text message to Page.
    Strzok wrote, "Also, apparently Times is angry with us about the WP (Washington Post) scoop and earlier discussion we had about the Schmidt piece that had so many inaccuracies. Too much to detail here, but I told Mike (redacted) and Andy they need to understand we were absolutely dealing in good faith with them," Strzok texted to Page on April 14, 2017. "The FISA one, coupled with the Guardian piece from yesterday." (The New York Times did not respond immediately for comment. The Washington Post also did not respond immediately for comment.)
    It is all so familiar: unelected senior people in the FBI conspiring with liberal media to harm – and eventually drive out of office – a Republican president whom they hate.

    I don't know if this is true or not, but considering what we've heard over the last year and half, I find it believable. I take it with a grain of salt though because a lot of folks get mad and disparage their boss on occasion.
