A Fox News host who reported on Durham suggested that tensions between Ukraine and Russia were being inflated by Biden administration officials for political purposes by the network’s national security correspondent.
After hearing President Biden say at a press conference Friday afternoon that he is “convinced” Russia will invade neighboring countries, members of the Five control panel is considered.
Greg Gutfeld said the situation in Eastern Europe was “very very very productive”. “And I don’t know what it is.”
Kennedy, the co-host asserted: “I know what it is. “It’s Jake Sullivan,” she said, referring to Biden’s National Security Adviser and former adviser to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
“And he was in yogurt deep in the Durham probe, and he was the one who said, ‘We have a lot of intelligence, an invasion is imminent.’ He said that last Friday. Today is next Friday, here we are. I don’t think Putin will invade.”
Durham’s Report Allegations that former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman obtained White House data through a technology executive who had legitimate access to it. Fox News report that Sullivan was an unnamed “foreign policy adviser” mentioned in the indictment against Sussman. Since the report was released last Friday, several Fox News hosts and guests blew the report out of proportionsometimes make statements that are completely untrue.
Fox News National Security Correspondent Jennifer Griffin clearly wouldn’t know what Kennedy was talking about.
“First of all, I need to reset my level with the conversation I just heard,” she began. “What we are witnessing right now is not something that has just changed in the last 24 hours.” Griffin then gave a summary of information she had received over the past few weeks from various sources pointing to a Russian attack.
“This is a very different situation from… The Iraq War and the WMDs. And how do we know? We are seeing it first-hand,” she said. “If you can’t look at the types of Iskander missile battalions currently in Belarus [and] 30,000 Russian troops were there. Half [Putin’s] The air force has now been deployed towards Ukraine. I was told just a few minutes ago by a senior defense official that 40% of his 190,000 troops on the border with Ukraine are currently in offensive positions. That’s what we’ve been waiting for.”
“Every American should watch this right now and know that this is deadly serious,” Griffin concluded. She then references the 1997 movie Wag the Dogin which an American president tries to distract the public from a scandal by starting a war in Europe.
“This is not a number Wag the Dog situation. Even mentioning the Durham probe in the same sentence as what we know, and what we can witness firsthand about the military build-up and know what Vladimir Putin is capable of…”
Earlier in the week, Fox’s Maria Bartiromo and conservative radio personality John Catsimatidis also discussed the movie, but argues the opposite: that its plot is exactly what is happening now. Like Kennedy, Bartiromo claimed the Durham report was a scandal worthy of distraction.
“[Sullivan] was one of the people who had been selling this Russian collusion lie for four years, and now he is [National Security Adviser], coming to this hysteria over Russia,” she exclaims. Bartiromo then wondered if the whole thing was “a ruse” because “we’re getting the word out about this Durham and we’ve just seen the highest inflation in 40 years.” “.
