(National Sentinel) Cover-up: Former NYPD officer, U.S. Secret Service agent and current conservative talk host Dan Bongino on Saturday accused Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media of working overtime to hide the biggest political scandal in the countryâ€™s history â€” weaponized spying on the Trump campaign.
â€œTrust the department, not the president. So your reaction to how Democrats are reacting to the White House decision to say, hey, letâ€™s make sure we are not releasing anything to compromise national security in this memo,â€ saidÂ <em>Fox News</em>â€˜ â€œFox & Friends Weekendâ€ co-host Pete Hegseth, in reference to President Donald J. Trumpâ€™s refusal on Friday to agree to the release of a memo authored by Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee because it contained classified information.
The Democrat memo, authored by Ranking Member Adam Schiff of California, reportedly contained classified information.
â€œPete, the Democrats have forfeited all credibility on this case. They havenâ€™t told the truth from day one,â€ Bongino said.
â€œPete, hereâ€™s what even more tragically amusing about the Democrats. They step â€” they lie so much they step on their own story. They told us before the release of the Nunes Republican memo oh my gosh sources and methods, itâ€™s going to jeopardize national security,â€ he continued.
â€œNobody should see this. Cover it up. Sweep it under the rug. Then the memo came out, â€˜oh, this is a big nothing burger.â€™ This is a total dud. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along. They have not told the truth from day one on this,â€ Bongino said.
â€œThey have forfeited all their credibility. This is important. They are covering up what I believe to be the biggest scandal in modern political history. That is the spyingÂ on of the Trump team by the Obama Administration with no evidence to do so,â€ he said.
Bongino also noted that the campaign of Hillary Clinton essentially â€œboughtâ€ an FBI investigation of her opponent, President Donald J. Trump, adding to the level of scandal.
