The GOP does not like to play by the rules. As was seen in Alabama following the Democratic victory in the Senate special elections, the state legislature changed the rule. They propose that the governor gets to choose the temporary Senator until the next general election. This means that Alabama voters can be deprived of an elected representative for as long as three years or half a Senate term depending on when the Senator leaves the post.
And while Republicans are known for breaking the rules and changing them to suit their agendas, they are also known for one more thing. They’re huge proponents of conspiracy theories. These “theories,” which are often just something created to cast doubt onto the facts, are tools Republicans use to keep their base of voters in the shadows of ignorance. Instead of letting them see the truth about how the Republicans colluded with Russia, for instance, Republicans create conspiracy theories to defend their stance.
The newest conspiracy theory involves Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with the Russian government to rig the 2016 presidential election. The new “theory” works to undermine Robert Mueller and his team of high-powered investigators. And when MSNBC’s host Nicolle Wallace heard the latest GOP conspiracy theory, she could not hold back her laughter.
The anchor was reporting on this week’s ‘theory’ from the Republicans that claims the FBI deleted text messages between an anti-Trump FBI agent, who has since been taken off the investigation, and a lawyer. Because the texts are not there, the Republicans claim the FBI is working on a massive scheme to “undermine” the president.
It really is laughable.
“Republicans seeking to discredit the Bob Mueller investigation have collectively honed in on a new talking point center around missing text messages between two FBI officials already under scrutiny for privately sharing their personal views about Trump and other politicians. Their theory goes like this – instead of a computer glitch, it was actually the FBI who deleted the texts as part of a widespread conspiracy to undermine Donald Trump.”
She can hardly contain her laughter at the ridiculous claims these desperate Republicans are making.
“The president tweeted about it last night,” Wallace added.
And as we all know, when the president tweets it is also a “fact.”
Wallace said: “Maybe he was being sarcastic, I’m not sure anymore.”
The tweet Trump spouted out at nearly 11 pm Tuesday night read:
“Where are the 50,000 important text messages between FBI lovers Lisa Page and Peter Strzok? Blaming Samsung!”
Wallace then tried to read Samsung’s statement defending itself. But it was just too much that she could not contain her laughter.
“I can’t keep reading this. This is too crazy. Let me just stop right here and say that just got bat-bleep crazy.”
Her interview with Intelligence and National Security reporter for NBC News Ken Dilanean outlines how the GOP’s “secret society” theory is absurd.
Republican voters need to question why the GOP is so desperate to disable Robert Mueller’s investigation? What do they know he will find?
