GOP Stoops To New Low With Plan To Censor Media Outlets That Criticize Trump
The Republican Party, who claim to be the constitutionalist party, seem to only like free speech when it benefits them. A new report revealed on Saturday that the GOP is looking to shut down news outlets who criticize Donald Trump.
According to The Atlantic, Trump’s allies at the Republican National Committee, as well as the super PAC America First, are planning an offensive against journalists: “Any reporter who tries that will be hit with 30-second spots of all their ridiculous claims about collusion,” said an anonymous source within GOP strategists’ orbit. “Their tweets have all been screen-capped. It’s all ready to go.”
The GOP seems to be holding on to a four-page report summary that was released by Attorney General William Barr last week that claimed that the Mueller report did not show enough evidence to conclude that Trump colluded with the Russia government.
But the full report has yet to be revealed.
To take things further. The Republican Party is also urging House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) resign for saying there was evidence of collusion. In reality, Barr’s letter doesn’t actually say there was no evidence of collusion, just not a prosecutable case — and until the actual Mueller report is released, there’s no way to know the extent of what he did find.
