Mainstream media avoid investigating Obamagate and Bidengate

The mainstream media continues to show little interest in investigating what are shaping up to be the two biggest political scandals ever in American history – Obamagate and Bidengate – in which Presidential contender Joe Biden is the common denominator.

Obamagate involved the FBI in October 2016 – during the Obama-Biden administration – using a dossier compiled by Christopher Steele (Steele Dossier) at the request of Fusion GPS – a Washington investigativefirmto obtain a warrant from the FISA Court enabling the FBI to spy on:

  • an American citizen – Carter Page – and indirectly on
  • the Trump 2016 election campaign Committee and
  • the Trump transition team readying to move into the White House.

The warrant was renewed in January 2017 for another three months just days before the Obama-Biden administration came to an end.

Steele was a British intelligence officer with the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) from 1987 until his retirement in 2009. He ran the Russia desk at MI6 headquarters in London between 2006 and 2009.

The Steele Dossier:

  • Contained information provided to Steele by his Russian intelligence contacts and was
  • Paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee

The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of the US Department of Justice concluded in December 2019:

Steele himself was not the originating source of any of the factual information in his reporting. Steele instead relied on a Primary Sub-source for information, who used his/her network of sub-sources to gather information that was then passed to Steele. With Fusion GPS’s authorization, Steele directly provided more than a dozen of his reports to the FBI between July and October 2016…


The OIG further concluded that:

  • the first FISA application contained seven significant inaccuracies and omissions that were repeated in the application for renewal in January 2017
  • 10 additional significant errors were included in the January renewal application.

In May 2019, Attorney General William Barr requested Connecticut’s U.S. Attorney John Durham to look into issues related to the origins of the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation. Durham’s report is yet to issue.

The mainstream media has taken no interest in pursuing this story.

Bidengate raises questions concerning alleged corruption by the Biden family including his son Hunter Biden and Joe Biden’s claim that he had no knowledge of his son’s business activities.

A laptop computer allegedly owned by Hunter Biden containing allegedly incriminating emails was seized by the FBI in December 2019 from a computer repair store. Hunter Biden has not disputed he is the owner of the computer or the authenticity of the emails released so far.

A receipt given to the store owner at the time of seizure included a case number: 272D BA 3065729.

“272” is reportedly the bureau’s classification for money laundering, while “272D” refers to “Money Laundering, Unknown SUA [Specified Unlawful Activity]-White Collar Crime Program,” according to FBI documents. One government official described “272D” as “transnational or blanket.”

The receipt was accompanied by a subpoena to the store owner to testify before a Grand Jury on 17 December 2019.

NPR provided its reason for not investigating this emerging story:

The Washington Post noted Fox’s extensive coverage whilst outing CNN and MSNBC:

It is, for example, a staple of Fox News’s coverage, with Hunter Biden’s name arising repeatedly on both the main network and its sister, Fox Business. It’s barely been mentioned on CNN or MSNBC.

A later Washington Post article attempting to write off Bidengate fails to mention the receipt suggesting money laundering being involved or the Grand Jury subpoena

The mainstream media’s failure to investigate Obamagate and Bidengate will destroy its credibility and see its followers desert it in droves.
