Hollywood is ramping up its efforts to get Joe Biden elected.
Almost every celebrity in the entertainment industry publicly and viciously hates Donald Trump.
Now Hollywood released one piece of ridiculous fiction to go after Trump.
Leave it to Hollywood to try to turn disgraced former FBI Director James Comey into a national hero.
That is the central premise of the Showtime limited series “The Comey Rule.”
The project was originally set up at CBS, but was eventually moved to Viacom’s premium service Showtime.
Jeff Daniels, who has been a staunch critic of Donald Trump, plays Comey, whose laughable memoir “A Higher Loyalty” serves as the basis for the series.
As expected, the project is filled with nonsense aimed to make the Trump administration look bad and paper over the fact the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign.
Billy Ray, the director of the project, naively bought the RussiaGate narrative, and he’s completely committed to it in this film.
Ray said in an interview, “The tipping point in that election, the deciding factor, was the infiltration by the Russians. That came directly from James Clapper; that’s not a matter of conjecture; that’s fact. And they’re trying to do it again in 2020.”
Using Clapper, Director of National Intelligence under Barack Obama, as some truth-teller is laughable.
Clapper famously lied about NSA surveillance on American citizens, and has been relatively quiet as Attorney General William Barr and lead investigator John Durham find more malfeasance related to the Russian collusion hoax.
In one of the scenes in “The Comey Rule,” Trump campaign staffer George Papadopoulos met with Australian diplomat Alexander Downer and told him the Russians hacked into the DNC and stole Hillary Clinton’s emails and were willing to release them on Trump’s behalf.
This is a flat-out lie.
Papadopoulos simply told Downer the Russians had damaging information on Clinton, which could’ve been related to the thousands of emails Clinton deleted after she was caught illegally using a private server or related to Clinton top aid John Podesta’s dubious connections to Russian businesses or the Clinton Foundation receiving over $100 million from Russian oligarchs.
The series also paints Trump campaign staffer Carter Page as a Russian asset, but ignores the fact he was a CIA asset and the CIA told the FBI about it.
The FBI ignored this information and lied on their FISA court application to spy on Page and other members of the Trump team.
The series also gives the most charitable interpretation of the loose coup talk between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
In the series, one of their trysts plays out as follows:
Page: Trump can’t become president, right? Right?
Strzok: No. He won’t. We’ll stop him.
Page: “We” as in the Bureau? You just gave me a boner.
Strzok: No, “We” as in the public.
The second part of the series has yet to air, but there probably won’t be any mention of Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz ripping Comey and the FBI for their actions regarding RussiaGate.
This is the type of propaganda Hollywood has been getting away with for decades.
