Andrea Mitchell has a tough time interviewing Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) who is not one easily steered into small, limited-scope discussions on a topic. Mitchell is attempting to play the “I told you so” card on behalf of her comrade Hillary Clinton, and tries to pin Rep Rohrabacher down. In the end she’s left just shaking her little liberal head.
She asks, “Now that Bob Gates has come out and there has been a statement by the FBI as well as the CIA, are you willing to accept that Russia tried, no one’s saying they succeeded but tried to intervene and influence attitudes towards the outcome of the American election?” Is that really what she intended to ask, if Russia was trying to influence attitudes towards the outcome of the election? Wouldn’t it make more sense to be influencing the outcome itself?
Rohrabacher takes exception with a portion of her introduction as well, noting that her claims that he had some doubt that Russia did this were unsubstantiated. He said, “I have never expressed doubt that Russia hacked into these emails and made them available to the American people. I never doubted that. What I have said is I don’t care who provided us those emails, the emails were factual and thus the American people, it did not hurt the American people to have more factual information available to them.”
Rep Rohrabacher says, “This is just a frantic effort to try to discredit an election because the American people rejected the liberal left effort, the massive campaign against Trump and the media cannot accept that the people have rejected them. They’re looking for some excuse.”
Mitchell interrupts in the supposed interest of “fact-checking,” saying the issue is whether a foreign power for the first time tried to not only hack and succeeded but also leaked to WikiLeaks. She says, “So it’s not the issue of the output, the issue is the interference and whether or not that kind of hacking needs to be retaliated against or should have been prevented. Whether the cause was weakness on the part of this White House?” Does Mitchell really believe 2016 was the first time a foreign power tried to hack into the RNC or DNC?
Rohrabacher reiterates, “If people are giving the American people more information why are you so upset about it?” Mitchell replies with an impassioned, “because it was stolen,” although she couldn’t have cared less when Clinton exposed our documents on her personal server to theft from all corners of the globe. This was something much more important that American lives and security, this is a matter of Democrat power. The more truthful answer would be because it cost us all [establishment elites] the election.
He raises the specter of Chappaquiddick Ted Kennedy making a trip to Moscow during the 1984 election and meeting with the KGB leadership in an effort to obtain Russian assistance in creating a event that would dislodge Reagan’s support in the upcoming election. “Now that was treason,” Rep Rohrabacher says as Mitchell is resigned to shaking her head in defeat.
