Chuck Grassley Schools the Media: ‘everybody was sold a bunch of snake oil, and now the jig’s up!’

What Finger News

By S. Noble

Senator Chuck Grassley is an Iowa gentleman who is more discrete at times than some of us would like. But today, he let it all hang out when reporters cornered him about Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.

Senator Grassley defended Barr’s assessment of Robert Mueller’s report and dismissed the media’s latest fake crisis, that is, Mueller is unhappy with Barr’s summary of the top conclusions of the report.

He listened to the reporters politely and all expected his usual euphemistic response. That is not what happened.

A reporter asked, “The last time he was here they said, ‘Has Bob Mueller expressed any concerns to you?’  He said no, he doesn’t know of any concerns. He had a letter that clearly said there are concerns.”

[This is such a non-never-mind.]

“He had that conversation and you heard him say, and I have to assume that Mueller said it to him, that he was only concerned about how the media played it,” Grassley said, referring to Mueller’s infamous letter to Barr complaining about “public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation.”

Barr indicated that he had called Mueller after the complaints and was told “he was not suggesting that we had misrepresented his report.” That information was available in the same Washington Post report that said Mueller was unhappy.

HERE IT COMES!

“Here’s where we are,” Grassley went on, in a calm and polite tone.

“The Democrats and you folks in the media are not concerned about the report,” he pointed out honestly.

“I think you’re concerned about the results weren’t what you expected. And I think we’re finding out that everybody was sold a bunch of snake oil, and now the jig is up!” he said, before abruptly turning and walking away.

This must be how he got his nickname Chuck ‘gangsta’ Grassley.

About S. Noble

Welcome from Long Island, New York!We want to present the news that the mainstream tends to ignore from a right-of-center perspective.I’m an ex-liberal and am amazed at all I didn’t know when I was a liberal, like: the Constitution isn’t a “living” document; giving out endless welfare checks is a bad idea; pity for prisoners is better spent on the victims of their crimes; guns aren’t evil but people are; free speech matters more than I knew which is why PC needs to be obliterated ASAP; women can be evil too; big government doesn’t do a good job.Kumbaya, We Are the World, It Takes a Village, and anything even remotely resembling those concepts are now out of my head unless I’m using them to make fun of somebody; war is necessary when under attack; socialism and communism have absolutely no redeeming qualities as systems of government; Carter wasn’t a good president and Reagan was, Green should go back to being a color.Independent blogs like this one provide an opportunity for common folk to battle the corrupted mainstream media in a search for truth. We are searching, always searching…We research and are as factual as possible and provide links to sources though commentary is commentary. If we make a mistake, we correct it.I have published educational articles, short stories for children and was a copy editor for This Week Magazine. I have a B.A. in English Literature and masters degrees in Education, Secondary Education and Administration. For 33 years, I worked in education as a teacher of English and later, Special Education, and spent years as an elementary principal, secondary principal and central office administrator.The name Sara Noble is a nom de plume. There are a few reasons for the nom de plume and included in those is the fact that many of my family members are liberals and don’t want their last name out there on a center-right blog. I started out with the pseudonym and just kept it. It’s a family name.Pity me, I’m surrounded by liberals and I live in New York.
