Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin expressed disappointment for the House Intelligence Committee hearing today, which he believes “shed very little light on the accuracy of past media reports about the Obama administration (NSA, FBI, CIA, DOJ, etc.) investigative and intelligence activity respecting the Trump campaign.”
FBI Director James Comey was called to give sworn testimony Monday regarding a series of tweet allegations from President Donald Trump against his predecessor, Barack Obama, implicating the former president in an alleged “wiretapping” operation against the Trump campaign for president.
Director Comey revealed the existence of an ongoing investigation into possible connections between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, but as Levin pointed out in a Facebook post “neither he nor NSA Director Mike Rogers would confirm or deny past media reports respecting Obama administration actions (NSA, FBI, CIA, DOJ, etc.) during the course of the campaign and in the final days.”
“We also learned nothing about any information shared with prior White House officials, despite a New York Times report about White House officials receiving intelligence information and spreading it with various agencies,” Levin wrote.
The Democrats on the committee were utterly uninterested in being helpful. Levin criticized them for smearing and defaming various individuals in the Trump administration, noting that their behavior during the hearing was “Truly bizarre.”
At the end of the day, Levin thinks this hearing was “a bad outcome for the country.” The important questions remain unanswered, the media’s reporting of allegations Russian ties to Trump’s campaign remain unproven, and the Democrats continue to issue partisan anti-Trump propaganda.
