Fox News Guest Host Casually Floats Conspiracy Theory That The FBI Plotted To Assassinate Trump [VIDEO]

Mediaite reports:

During today’s broadcast of Fox News’ Outnumbered, Kevin Jackson was asked about reports that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley wants Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe fired. Grassley added that the committee needed to get to the bottom of whether McCabe was referenced in a text sent by Strzok, which led Jackson down a rabbit hole.

“I think they will say, what was his intent, right? That is exactly what former FBI Director James Comey said when he was letting Hillary Clinton off the hook. And his intent, whether it was an assassination attempt or whether, definitely something — I am just saying, we do not know what it was.

“When you say, ‘we gotta make sure this guy doesn’t get in at all costs’ — what does that mean? I am saying, there is a spectrum of what does it mean, but one thing we know for sure, is that he was plotting in an election against a candidate, and there is FBI fingerprints all over this.”

As you’ll see in the clip, Jackson’s claim was so insane that every the Fox hosts were dumbfounded.

    • Judas Peckerwood

      They’re not crazy. They’re relentless, amoral propagandists well schooled in the Big Lie technique.

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        The Big Lie, even if it isn’t believed, normalizes the small to midsize lies, making them seem more believable.

        • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

          I’m not worried about the believable, it’s the acceptable that I’m worried about.

    • David Walker

      Rachel pointed out that the Strzok/Lisa Page emails skewered just about everybody in DC, and that they both sounded more like republican’ts than Democrats. Apparently, the fully-released “body of work” is being cherry picked not unlike the bible…it fits whatever you want it to.

    • HanyBaal

      He can read an assassination plot from a comment, yet when 45 tweets sexual innuendos about a sitting Senator, we’re told to get our “mind out of the gutter”

    • Craig C

      For the past week, Fox News has ratcheted up the propaganda that there is a coup imminent in order to make Trump look like the victim when the Mueller investigation comes out with a smoking gun.

      • Todd20036

        It’ll work among is shitty nazi base.

        • DN

          The more time passes, the more I think you’re right when you see the worst in their side. Hope you’re enjoying the nice weather today.

        • Craig C

          Sadly true.

      • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

        …or justification for suddenly firing Mueller on Friday.

  • sigh. my brother, the pain you feel right now is stamped on your face so hard it’s like you got kicked by a bull. “bottom” indeed. anyway, you can still walk away. you don’t really need the money. hell, you’d probably make a shit ton, writing a tell-all about life at faux. you can get a ghost writer. anyway, it’s not worth it. whatever you think you’re getting out of this, it will mean nothing, in just a few short years. when you won’t have any real friends, to start with.

    • Todd20036

      all minorities have their share of quislings, I’m afraid.

      It’s not a good thing.

      • i know a little bit about this. the thing is, it really doesn’t matter how smart you are, how well bred or trained in etiquette. hanging out with racists eventually means one or more of them will be… racist, towards you. personally. it’s like a splash of cold water in your face. there are ‘nice’ racists and obvious racists. the nice ones have black friends who just don’t know any better yet. gay people, of course, understand this.

  • Gustav2

    It is on Facebook, it must be true or I will make it up.

  • another_steve

    Why the far right (including the orange sexual predator) think it a good idea to alienate the FBI in the midst of a major investigation of the far right (Boyfriend Mueller) is totally totally beyond me.

    Are these people insane?

    • CottonBlimp

      They’re hoping they can delegitimize the FBI in the eyes of their followers, in the hopes that the meatheads will come to their rescue when law enforcement comes a-knockin.

      So far, it’s working.

    • William

      Once the FBI is closed or whittled down to a shoestring agency, Trump will replace it with Erik Prince’s spy network of loyalty police.

      • Christopher

        I promise you and everyone here, when/if Cheetolini’s Gestapo comes to fruition, I will fight them to my dying breath!

        I will NEVER live under Fascism! NEVER!

        And I’ll take a helluva lot of them down before I’m felled.

        Come the revolution, I’ll be very busy taking out the trash.

  • Todd20036

    Fox news is full blown Nazi propaganda. They aren’t even news anymore.

    Can anyone imagine CNN or MSNBC or WaPo pulling these stunts?

    Me neither.

    • Lazycrockett

      Thankfully their audience is getting smaller by the day.

      • Todd20036

    An 8 minute clip of fox noise ?

    I Don’t think so !

    • skyweaver

      I made it through about 7 seconds. I just can’t do it anymore, even out of curiosity

    • ChrisInKansas

      I got the full sense of crazy just from reading it, thanks.

  • Gustav2

    Where has there been corruption in the FBI?

    Because the general public trusts the FBI more than the Trump White House.

    • AJ Drew

      One would imagine this year’s holiday party at the FBI should be epic. “OMFG, the public trusts us! Kinda! Whoo-hoo!”

    • thatotherjean

      I suspect that the general public trusts used car salesmen more than the Trump White House. If not, they should.

  • William

    Is this an excuse to fire all FBI agents? It’s like a less messy version of the ‘Night of the Long Knives’.

            A couple of doubles of rum and I’m EVERYONE’s best friend. So to speak.

            The husband MAY refer to it as my demon aphrodisiac. I might have been known in the past to randomly, after said drinks, have found myself gnawing on a man’s beard where the grey is… THEN introducing myself. “Oh, hey, yeaaaah… nice beard?” (nomnom) “Uh… how’s your night?”

          • GanymedeRenard

            Would you like to be my guru?

          • MT YVR

            First: remove your sense of shame, knowing you’re going to embarrass everyone you know or have ever met. (Dishonour on you, dishonour on your family, dishonour on your cow!)
            Second: alcohol.
            Third: lower your standards. Not… like… GOP low. Just.. you know… “the lighting was dim so…”
            Fourth: alcohol.

            It helps if you start out as a slut, but you know the learning curve on THAT is pain in the ass.

          • GanymedeRenard

            Wow, thank you! Though I’ve unconsciously practiced some of your directions (it seems they come naturally to me), is there a temple I should worship you in as your devote follower now?

  • Lazycrockett

    Suggestions like this fundamentally hurts our democracy, which I guess is the Putin plan.

    • MichaelJ

      And the plan of the right and Republican Party. When discussing what America means to them, what they value, the right’s talking points always include the words “freedom” and “liberty,” but they never mention “democracy.” They prefer plutocracy, even it is established by a fascist.

  • GayOldLady

    Fox News has completely tipped over to Alex Jones level Tin Foil hat batshittery. These people better put a lid on it while they still can, because it looks as if they’re engaging in a conspiracy to obstruct justice.

    • AJ Drew

      Tepidly asking because… my sanity… what are they broadcasting now?

      Here’s hoping that someone comes along and puts bird seed on the cars every night. Rich assholes are the worst assholes.

      • peacfulseas inWA

        We do that to camp trailers at the rally’s and campgrounds to the redneck jerks.

      • Christopher

        Pour honey on the car first and then cover it with birdseed.

        • Bluto

          You’re wicked & I applaud you, Sir.

        • MT YVR

          Put Alka-Seltzer on the cars and invite in seagulls, to go with the old urban saw about exploding birds.

          Or just some sort of random lightweight exlax type dealie for the birds.

          Sad part is I’ve not even read this thread, just this one comment because it’s where my page stopped scrolling so I’ve NO idea what I’m contributing to… 😛

          • peacfulseas inWA

            Living in Upstate NY in the dead of winter ,heaters required, we’d shove Limburger cheese in the air ducts of assholes cars as we left the bar. It didn’t take a whole bunch and no one locked their car doors back in the dinosaur era but you soon learned too.

        • peacfulseas inWA

          You are indeed evil,Please come sit by me. Leave the birdseed but do bring the honey.

      • Bambino

        Oh, use the black oil sunflower seeds. They shit black oil all over. I stop putting the feed to attract the cardinals after my balcony was swamp by the sparrows over the summer. Cleaning up four times a day is not what I had bargain for.

      • Mark

        Put the birdseed on the ground. The mice will find it and then they’ll find the warm engine and start to nest…thus chewing wires, eau de mouse pee and poop in the a/c vents, burrowing in to the car and in general, destroying it….

    • ok, that’s really horrible. that said?

      partner is a super light sleeper. any noise at all can mean the end of only a few hours of much needed rest. we have a nice urban forest plot here, with… lots of birds. deer, possums, rabbits, and wild dogs and cats, too. but anyway, early morning in the summer is torture for those with a delicate ear. doesn’t bother me at all. but i am not going to show this post around, for fear someone might get ideas. i need birds in my garden ecosystem.

      • AJ Drew

        The way you write (well, type,) is so astute, you should be an editor… lots of online sites need you!

        • i am an editor, University of Chicago. i just don’t work there anymore. no one cares. it’s kind of sad. i’m trying to be the right kind of Revolutionary and failing, like a former lover of mine who is now a new parent. yikes. i chose not to do that and i’m glad, for all this person has genes of the 99%tile. better is a long, long way off, Kids.

          • AJ Drew

            well, take comfort in your words, sincerely. You write well, like prose. As Wordsworth wrote, write as if you are flowering, but remember to slumber.

          • AJ Drew

            Bodies die, bodies leave, but love remains… if you let it.

      • I’m the same way. I got a white noise machine to mask out environmental noises.

    • peacfulseas inWA

      Seems at least to be a humane way of dealing with the issue. I shutter to think what IF this was an issue is say Texas? How differently might it be handled. Haven’t these people heard of a car cover. They’re washable and not only protect against bird crap but damaging elements. Yeah they’re a pain. I’m currently watching the birds at my feeders that are driving my cats nuts watching their big screen view out the windows. Humming birds have been non stop today.

      • BobSF_94117

        It’s not humane. The spikes injure the birds’ feet. They get infected. Some die. If you’ve ever seen pigeons stumbling along on badly deformed feet, spikes are why.

        • peacfulseas inWA

          My apologies. I did not realize they were actual spikes but were more like whiskers on some sail boats not harmful and more of a deterrent. Love my wild birds.

    • Bambino

      To think that the neighborhood cats would climb the trees too. What an asshole!

    • ChrisInKansas

      I guess I’m terrible. If I had to park my car on the street, I wouldn’t want it ruined by bird droppings every day, either. That said, if you’re really wealthy, why aren’t you parking your car(s) in a garage?

      • Mark_in_MN

        Ruined?? Only if you are embarrassed by driving anything but a clean and spotless vehicle.

        • ChrisInKansas

          Bird droppings can eat away paint if you don’t wash it off.

          • thatotherjean

            So. . .um. . .wash it off? It wouldn’t take an entire car wash, just some windex or something, and a paper towel. Much less expensive and time-consuming than creating an entire tree full of bird spikes.

      • I guess that putting a fucking cover over the car is too much effort. Oh the pain, Poor little richie rich might ding a finger nail putting it on and taking it off. The horror.

    OT, entirely. But I’m amused beyond words right now because I’m a horrible person and thought I’d share.

    So the hub hates snow. Here in Vancouver we rarely get it. Snowpocalypse! every time. I don’t often, then, get to enjoy snow nor do I get to piss the husband off… this way. Often.

    Today, however. Multiple text messages, several including photos. All met with “fuck you, dear” responses. Until lunch. He decided to drop by and lo we went out together.

    It was all fun and games until he ran into a lowered tree limb and got snagged. In an effort to unsnag himself he took a big step away. And jerked.

    And lo there was an entire branch full of wet snow upon his head.

    I cried, happily. “(sniffle) This… this is the best (sniffle) day of my LIFE.”

    I’ve not stopped laughing.

    So, to get back to an earlier thread… yes, I absolutely am sure I’m going to hell. It shall be fun.
