The White House issued a fiery statement on Thursday, ripping the “breathless” media coverage of the Russia collusion “hoax” and said now that it’s all over, journalists should turn their attention on Obama-era scandals.
“While the establishment media has breathlessly covered this partisan witch hunt for nearly two years, they refuse to cover the real scandals that plagued the previous Democrat administration,” said a White House official.
The administration cited the email scandal that dogged former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The administration also noted that former President Barack Obama gave the email scandal a pass when, on “60 Minutes,” he said it was a “mistake” but not a “national security problem.”
Obama’s comment raised concern in national security circles, and one former official said: “That’s a problem, right?”
The White House also cited the destruction of over 30,000 Clinton emails from her private server in New York after a preservation order had been issued.
Additionally, the White House wants the Clinton Foundation’s funding investigated and the efforts by FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok to undermine Trump and help Clinton in 2016.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you agree with the White House?
