Questions about the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russian intelligence agents to rig the 2016 federal election continue to swirl.  At the same time, concerns about the president having obstructed the ongoing investigation into this possible crime since taking office are ramping up.

In response to these questions and concerns, what did Jason Chaffetz say on Fox & Friends yesterday?

“Republicans need to get a backbone”, he said. Every time the Democrats say they need to call up Jared Kushner or Don Jr., call up Chelsea Clinton.”

He went on, “so every time a Democrat says ‘I gotta talk to Donald Trump Jr.,’ then go up and bring Chelsea Clinton in there.”

Why Chelsea Clinton?

Because, according to Chaffetz (but in the absence of any proof or evidence), she was “involved in the Benghazi situation”.

Wait, what? Are you kidding me? 

The Benghazi investigation is over, and Secretary Clinton was exonerated.

The election is over, so there’s no need to pretend that Banghazi is even an issue.

And, most of all, it’s a bald-faced lie to suggest that Chelsea Clinton had anything to do with Benghazi in the first place.

Fox & Friends is the land of lies. Beware all who tread there.

It’s Wednesday, the 26th of July, 2017. Its not a normal day.
