Carlson on Possibility Dems Won’t Take Control of Congress: ‘Public Has Recognized That the Russian Investigation Is Not What They Said It Was’

Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson gave a scathing critique of Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election.

Carlson said the investigation wasn’t about any of its stated purposes, but as a means to explain Democrats’ 2016 election loss. He argued that since Democrats have not come to terms with what cost them that election, they stand to lose again in the November midterms.

“More than anything, we’ve learned just how clueless the people who run Washington, D.C. are,” Carlson said. “Rather than accept the fact that they created Donald Trump themselves by abandoning and then coming to despise the rest of the country they run. They couldn’t face that, so they concocted the Russia collusion story as a way to sustain a world where they did nothing wrong. And they only lost because their enemies betrayed this country to a foreign power. For more than a year, Russia was all they could talk about because they certainly didn’t want to talk about the issues that got Trump elected in the first place — drug ODs, a vanishing middle class, their agenda of literally replacing the people who live in this country with immigrants. They didn’t want to talk about that. But it hasn’t been working.”

“For most of Trump’s presidency, Democrats have looked forward to the big midterm wins that will give them control of Congress once again,” he continued. “That’s the whole point of all of this. But it hasn’t worked. Their lead is dwindling. It’s now within the margin of error. They may not win back the House at all. It looks like the Senate is going to be beyond their reach. Why? Because the public has recognized that the Russian investigation is not what they said it was. It is and has been from the beginning been a witch hunt created by a cabal frantic to keep it hold on power.”

Last week, reports indicated Stefan Halper, a Cambridge professor and longtime aide to some of Washington’s most powerful figures, was outed as an FBI informant planted inside Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. The New York Post writes: Halper made his first overture when he met with Page at a British symposium. The two remained in regular contact for more than a year, meeting at Halper’s Virginia farm and in Washington, DC, as well as exchanging emails. The professor met with Trump campaign co-chair Sam Clovis in late August, offering his services as a foreign-policy adviser, The Washington Post reported Friday, without naming the academic. … Days later, Halper contacted Papadopoulos by e-mail. The professor offered the young and inexperienced campaign aide $3,000 and an all-expenses-paid trip to London, ostensibly to write a paper about energy in the eastern Mediterranean region. Here are a few fast facts about Halper’s history in politics. Got His Start in Nixon/Ford Years The Stanford and Oxford-educated Halper started his career in government in 1971 as a member of President Richard Nixon’s Domestic Policy Council. The foreign policy expert served as the Office of Management and Budget’s Assistant Director of Management and Evaluation Division between 1973-1974. Halper then served as an assistant to all three of President Gerald Ford’s Chief of Staffs — Alexander Haig, Donald Rumsfeld, and Dick Cheney — until 1977. Accused of Leading a Spy Ring Inside Jimmy Carter’s Presidential Campaign The Reagan-Bush presidential campaign hired Halper to serve as Director of Policy Coordination in 1980 and would later be embroiled in the Debategate affair, a scandal in which CIA operatives were accused of leaking the Carter campaign’s foreign policy positions to the Republican ticket. The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald reports: Four decades ago, Halper was responsible for a long-forgotten spying scandal involving the 1980 election, in which the Reagan campaign – using CIA officials managed by Halper, reportedly under the direction of former CIA Director and then-Vice-Presidential candidate George H.W. Bush – got caught running a spying operation from inside the Carter administration. The plot involved CIA operatives passing classified information about Carter’s foreign policy to Reagan campaign officials in order to ensure the Reagan campaign knew of any foreign policy decisions that Carter was considering. Halper also worked as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs during President Ronald Reagan’s first term. Had a Stint as a Bank Executive In 1984, Halper was chairman of three financial institutions — National Bank of Northern Virginia, Palmer National Bank, and George Washington National Bank. White House official Oliver North wired loaned funds from the Palmer National Bank to a Swiss bank account, which were later used to aid the contras. Believed Hillary Clinton Would Be a Better Steward for U.S.-UK Relations In March 2016, Halper told Russia’s Sputnik News that he believed then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton would prove to be a steadier hand in preserving the “special relationship” enjoyed by the United States and Britain. “I believe Clinton would be best for US-UK relations and for relations with the European Union. Clinton is well-known, deeply experienced and predictable. US-UK relations will remain steady regardless of the winner although Clinton will be less disruptive over time,” Halper said.
