Just when you thought the federal government couldn’t stoop any lower, they exceed all expectations and totally shatter any credibility the Washington Swamp had left.
Let’s be honest, the Washington Swamp had zero credibility. This just puts the final nail in their coffin.
House Democrats have hired James Goldston, a former ABC News executive, to advise them as they prepare to host what they hope will be made-for-primetime TV hearings to convince Americans that Donald Trump attempted an insurrection on January 6, 2021.
Goldston was forced out of ABC News for his handling of multiple scandals, most notably a major coverup of the Jeffrey Epstein story. A political megadonor and close friend of many prominent Democrats, Epstein is a convicted sex offender and child trafficker who died under questionable conditions while in prison for his crimes.
Undercover journalist network Project Veritas exposed ABC after it obtained a secret video of news anchor Amy Robach expressing frustration that her network refused to publish a story from 2015 that would’ve exposed Prince Andrew’s connection to Epstein.

Robach also said in the video that she believed Epstein’s death was murder, not due to suicide.
Golston – the 1/6 Committee’s newest hire – was at the helm at ABC News during this scandal.
Side note: ABC News is owned by Disney.
Really makes you think!
Following the Project Veritas bombshell, House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy sent Golston a letter asking for an explanation as to why his network buried the story. McCarthy argues that Robach’s 2015 hit piece could’ve prevented further assaults against underage girls.

ABC released a statement of their own after the Robach videos went viral online.
Here’s ABC’s response to a Project Veritas video of Amy Robach expressing frustration that her Jeffrey Epstein piece didn’t run.

Meanwhile, the Jan. 6 Witch Hunters are hoping Golston can help convince the American public that Donald Trump was orchestrating a takeover plot by inciting a riot at the Capitol.
This entire “blockbuster” – of course – is nothing but Soviet-style propaganda used to drum up support for the Democrat Party ahead of November’s midterms.
It’s entertainment, not actual political discourse, but if history tells us one thing it’s that propaganda actually works.
The first hearing will air on Thursday at 8 p.m. Eastern.
