“The cynical view is that [FBI Director James] Comey is still carrying water for Clinton and is trying to get everybody to stop paying attention to the WikiLeaks dump because it’s starting to have an impact,” Limbaugh said.
“So you announce you’re opening the inquiry, get everybody all hot and bothered and focused on it, and then after three or four or five days, announce that it was a false alarm, nothing to see here. The investigation is now officially over — and, meanwhile, in that five-day period everybody’s forgotten about … WikiLeaks,” Limbaugh said.
It’s a good thought. My only issue with it is:
- Those of us paying attention aren’t going to stop. If we’ve held on to the memory of Fast and Furious and Benghazi this long, Wikileaks won’t be an issue.
- The people most likely to forget probably don’t know much about it anyway. The mainstream media hasn’t exactly been all over it, and for many people, if the mainstream media doesn’t hand it to them a silver platter, they certainly aren’t going to look it up themselves. So if they even know those Wikileaks are out there, they probably don’t know much about what they say.
