Watch Lester Holt Lie to the President of the United States Repeatedly During his Interview

by Scott Creighton

(A video of the extended version of interview can be found at the end of this article)

The big takeaway from this interview according to the complicit press, is that President Trump admitted he intended to fire FBI Director James Comey even before meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. They have harped on this all night saying it’s “proof” that Trump lied and is grounds for us all to panic because it is clearly yet another constitutional crisis.

That is bullshit. Yes, he intended to fire Comey. What he said in the short letter was that he received Rosenstein’s and Sessions’ recommendation and decided to fire him. Just because he wanted to fire him in the first place does not mean he’s lying about what happened. He did receive the letters of recommendation to fire Comey and he did fire him.

His personal opinion prior to that is a given. He didn’t HAVE to take their recommendation and act on it. He is the president and it is his choice. So clearly, he agreed with them even prior to the letters.

Again, don’t know how many times I can say this… I am NOT a fan of Donald Trump. However, I am a fan of not letting the complicit media undermine our democracy… such as it is.

The president of the United States gave Lester Holt an interview yesterday on the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Lester Holt was less than cordial. No matter what Trump talked about, he kept bringing the conversation back to the Russia investigation. Over and over again, he asked questions about that, even bringing up Trump’s tweets.

At around the 6:10 mark in the interview Trump says if Russia did something to the election he wants to know about it and Lester, condescendingly looks at the president and says “Well, there’s already intelligence from virtually every intelligence agency that, yes, that happened

What Mr. Holt is doing is parroting the misinformation regarding the Jan. 6th “intelligence report” on Russia’s involvement in our past election. This is what everyone says came from “all 17 intelligence agencies”

James Clapper mentioned it the other day during his testimony before congress.

“As you know, the I.C. was a coordinated product from three agencies; CIA, NSA, and the FBI not all 17 components of the intelligence community. Those three under the aegis of my former office… The two dozen or so analysts for this task were hand-picked, seasoned experts from each of the contributing agencies.” James Clapper

Clapper was deliberately putting to rest the myth fabricated by the complicit media that all 17 intelligence agencies came to the same conclusion about Russia hacking our election. In fact, it was only 3… the DHS actually said they didn’t stand by any of the conclusions in the report (which has been stricken in the newest version)

this report is provided “as is” for informational purposes only. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) does not provide any warranties of any kind regarding any information contained within.”

… and in fact, it was only about 20 agents who prepared the report.

Three is not “virtually all” of 17 last I checked.

After Trump responded appropriately to Lester’s bullshit about all the agencies backing that ridiculous report (and it was ridiculous… 4 pages of it dealt with various RT news broadcasts) Lester then asks him “Were you angry with James Comey when he went public and said he can’t support your unsubstantiated charges of wiretapping, that your predecessor wiretapped you?

To clarify…

“Britain’s spy agencies played a crucial role in alerting their counterparts in Washington to contacts between members of Donald Trump’s campaign team and Russian intelligence operatives, the Guardian has been told.

GCHQ first became aware in late 2015 of suspicious “interactions” between figures connected to Trump and known or suspected Russian agents, a source close to UK intelligence said. This intelligence was passed to the US as part of a routine exchange of information, they added…

The European countries that passed on electronic intelligence – known as sigint – included Germany, Estonia and Poland. Australia, a member of the “Five Eyes” spying alliance that also includes the US, UK, Canada and New Zealand, also relayed material, one source said” The Guardian

So we know that Britain, Germany, Estonia and Poland shared information with the Obama administration on several occasions relating to the Trump campaign throughout the course of the election process. We have to take them at their word as to what intel those communications contained as they have yet to release the documents.

Then we also know this:

1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied…

4. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.

5. January 2017: Buzzfeed/CNN dossier. Buzzfeed releases, and CNN reports, a supposed intelligence “dossier” compiled by a foreign former spy. It purports to show continuous contact between Russia and the Trump campaign, and says that the Russians have compromising information about Trump. None of the allegations can be verified and some are proven false. Several media outlets claim that they had been aware of the dossier for months and that it had been circulating in Washington.

6. January: Obama expands NSA sharing. As Michael Walsh later notes, and as the New York Times reports, the outgoing Obama administration “expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.” The new powers, and reduced protections, could make it easier for intelligence on private citizens to be circulated improperly or leaked.

7. January: Times report. The New York Times reports, on the eve of Inauguration Day, that several agencies — the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Treasury Department are monitoring several associates of the Trump campaign suspected of Russian ties. Other news outlets also report the exisentence of “a multiagency working group to coordinate investigations across the government,” though it is unclear how they found out, since the investigations would have been secret and involved classified information.

What part of all of that leaves anyone with the feeling that Trump’s claim that he was being spied on is “unsubstantiated”?

It’s unfortunate that Trump isn’t smarter or more well versed in current events. Had Lester Holt made the mistake of making that claim to someone like myself, he would have regretted it.

Lester then goes back to the fake Russia hacking bullshit, trying once again to imply that Trump fired Comey because of this baseless investigation.

He said there are “reports” that Trump is angry about it. President Trump said quite accurately that they are baseless reports coming from the complicit media which is something I covered myself just yesterday:

Politico published a report suggesting Trump was some kind of raging, out of control maniac running around the White House fuming over Comey still investigating his being a Manchurian Candidate for Vladamir Putin. This lovely piece of work is as well resourced as one might imagine:

“two advisers said…one adviser said…one person briefed on the administration’s deliberations said…a White House official said…Two White House officials said…one White House official said…several other people familiar with the events said…one White House official said…one senior official said…one White House official said…said one senior White House official…Several Stone allies and friends said” Politico

Unnamed sources made up the entirety of the article about Trump running around screaming at TVs like a madman.” Scott Creighton

After that, Lester Holt started in with the Gen. Flynn bullshit. Then moved on to ask him about his financial ties … with Russia.

Holt never asked him to specify why he fired FBI Director Comey. Never asked him. Not once.

Lester Holt didn’t want too know why Donald Trump fired James Comey. That wouldn’t serve his owner’s interests. And he didn’t want to give the president a platform to explain himself. All Lester Holt wanted to do was continue badgering the president and continue promoting lies that have already been exposed as lies. That’s what journalism is today.

But the complicit media have been out there going rabid over this interview and I will tell you why:

“But when I spoke with Putin he asked me whether or not I would see Lavrov. Should I have said “no. I’m not going to see him”? I said I will see him. During that discussion with Lavrov I think we had a great discussion having to do with Syria, having to do with the Ukraine, and maybe that discussion will lead to a lot less people getting killed and will lead ultimately to peace. So, I’m OK with those discussions Lester. I think it’s a good thing” President Trump

The new Cold War is a highly profitable venture for the military industrial complex. So is the regime change operation in Syria and the Greater Kurdistan project.

It doesn’t suit the interests of a certain segment of our rulers to mend ties with Russia at this particular moment in history and Trump appears to be willing to do just that. Ask the family of JFK what that idea got him back in the early 60s.

Trump did say at one point during the interview that the decision to fire Comey had been made “a while” before they let him go on Monday so it is clear to me that, like I reported when this news first broke, he probably decided to do it after Comey’s May 3rd interview before congress when he lied about how all those emails got on the laptop Weiner handed over to the FBI and they decided to make it official BECAUSE he was all the on the other side of the country… so they could go into his office and seize files and maybe even laptops associated with the Clinton server investigation.


Watching Holt’s interview is something like watching a kangaroo court proceeding. It’s not about finding the truth or giving someone a chance to make their case. It was about perpetuating propaganda and insinuating guilt by association.

Lester Holt lied to the president about these two subjects that he is certainly aware of, the ones I highlighted above. Due to his profession, he is probably more aware of them than the president.

The takeaway from the complicit press last night and this morning is that President Trump lied to Comey about why he was fired. And that he had all his surrogates lie to the media about it.

I don’t think that is true.

We do know James Comey lied to congress on May 3, 2017 when he told them Huma Abedin forwarded “thousands” of emails to Weiner so he could “print them out” for Hillary Clinton and then he lied when he said he wasn’t going to prosecute Huma because he didn’t think she violated the law “with criminal intent”

Those were lies and the FBI’s communication to congress on Weds. proves it.

And Lester Holt lied repeatedly to the president when he put forward propaganda about “virtually every intelligence agency ” saying Russia hacked our election and when he said the claims about the Obama administration spying on the Trump campaign were “unsubstantiated charges of wiretapping

Those are lies. Proven lies.

As I said before, I am not a Trump fan. But I am a fan of the truth and what they are trying to do to the president right now is shameful especially in the context of why they are doing it. To defend Hillary… to defend the lying FBI director… to undermine Trump’s Russian reset? Any number of these reasons and more? I don’t know. Whatever it is, it’s slimy and in many ways, even slimier than Trump himself.

  1. Excellent article.
    We should be ashamed of our media-journalists being allowed by the networks to lie and verbally abuse the President during an interview that Trump allowed.

  2. Thank you Scott. Appreciate you breaking down the information and your presentation of the facts.

    Belated Happy Birthday!

  3. Two liars reading from the same script. Seems like we’ve got the media and the president we deserve.

  4. That quote is a great catch. When JFK started talking directly with Kruschev, making peace, CIA shot him, and ever since US (i.e. CIA) policy is to seal off presidents from the outside world except for highly stylized, scripted ritual. CIA can’t shoot Trump because everybody with a three-digit IQ is onto that trick. So their next reflex is to stigmatize diplomacy as treason, the way they dealt with Alger Hiss. That background is still effectively concealed, so it’s up to Trump to lay it out: this is CIA versus the law, that is, friendly relations, pacific resolution of disputes, and peace defined as refraining from use or threat of force.

    Trump seems like the last guy in the world to understand this. But Trump’s milieu is the most internationalist subculture in the US (what David H. Fischer called New Amsterdam, plus Quaker Philadelphia with Penn looming all around Wharton.) Trump made a lot of money off various UN delegations. One of his best stunts was to offer lodgings to Gaddafy’s UN delegation, tent, hot Ukrainian boyguards and all. It’s quite possible he got some ideas from the UN member nations by osmosis.

    • “So their next reflex is to stigmatize diplomacy as treason”

      That is absolutely right. That is exactly what they are doing. And I agree that he probably doesn’t understand this on his own, but my guess is, he’s got advisers around him who do.
