Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton also appeared on “Lou Dobbs Tonight” on the Fox Business Network to discuss former FBI lawyer Lisa Page’s testimony on Capitol Hill and special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
Tom Fitton, president of the government watchdog group Judicial Watch, said in a recent interview that “everyone in Washington, D.C. knows there’s no Russia collusion” with the 2016 Trump campaign, and they’ve known it for “at least a year.” He added that because there is no evidence of collusion, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe is effectively a “zombie investigation” — it’s dead but it keeps on wandering around.
During an interview with The Epoch Times at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Fitton was asked, “As far as I can tell – correct me if I’m wrong – there really is no evidence [of collusion], there’s nothing to substantiate any of this activity or justify any of this activity?”
“We are not the reservoir of objectivity that I think we were,” Koppel lamented in the interview.
“We have things appearing on the front page of the New York Times right now that never would have appeared 50 years ago. Analysis, commentary on the front page,” Koppel said. “I remember sitting at the breakfast table with my wife during the campaign after the Access Hollywood tape came out and the New York Times, and I will not offend any of you here by using the language but you know exactly what words were used and they were spelled out on the front page of the New York Times.”
“I turned to my wife and I said the Times is absolutely committed to making sure that this guy does not get elected,” he said. “So his perception that the establishment press is out to get him doesn’t mean that great journalism is not being done. It is. But the notion that most of us look upon Donald Trump as being an absolute fiasco, he’s not mistaken in that perception and he’s not mistaken when so many of the liberal media, for example, described themselves as belonging to the Resistance.”
This isn’t the first time Koppel has lobbed criticism at his profession. In October of 2018, Koppel got under the skin of CNN’s Brian Stelter when he said that the network’s ratings would be in the toilet if it weren’t for Donald Trump, despite the anti-Trump bias that oozes from the television set. It’s all part of a rather funny dynamic. The media hates Trump, but they get rating boosts when they broadcast his rallies, which in turn could help him win re-election in 2020.
Meanwhile, former Congressman Jason Chaffetz exposes fired FBI Director James Comey for his frequent lying under oath on FISA abuse cases. Comey has repeatedly lied to members of congressional committees during his testimony in open hearings as well as closed, classified sessions, according to GOP congressmen and congresswomen. Chaffetz is now a Fox News Channel contributor.
