Live from music row Monday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 am to 8:00 am – host Leahy welcomed the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio.
During the top of the third hour, Carmichael weighed in on the information that is surfacing around the Obama administration’s illegal surveillance of General Mike Flynn. He ended the segment by discussing how the host of Meet the Press, Chuck Todd is not only a high paid un-intelligent left-wing media outlet but joked with Leahy that he is a complete tool after watching his so-called ‘apology’ which aired a misleading Bill Barr interview.
Leahy: In the studio with us the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael. Crom, it just seems like new information is piling up all over the place about how the Obama administration was out to get Mike Flynn.
Carmichael: Well there’s information piling up on many different aspects of the Obama administration in the closing days as well as your report that they were after Mike Flynn all the way back to…
Carmichael: 2015 and 2016.
Leahy: There was a complaint filed by a whistleblower according to the whistleblower’s statement made to Neil McCabe at the Tennessee Star that lead to the filing of a complaint in March of 2017. Now we haven’t confirmed that with the Treasury but nonetheless the complaint said, hey you’ve been collecting data about the bank records of Mike Flynn since 2015. You shouldn’t be doing that.
Carmichael: What you are saying is that a whistleblower followed the actual whistleblower procedure and reported it to the inspector general of his or her department and then the inspector general sat on it.
Leahy: Apparently the Obama appointee Richard K. Darma has had this according to our source reported by Neil McCabe hasn’t done anything with this complaint for three years and two months. We will follow up with the Treasury Department to see if they have filed that report. But it’s one of many things going on.
Carmichael: Yes. Yes. This is hysterical to me that the left-wing media is complaining when Republican Senators leak information. (Leahy laughs)
Leahy: That’s their modus operandi.
Carmichael: When Adam Schiff leaks information he’s doing a public service and he’s a patriot. When Republicans do it they are nefarious evil people.) But apparently Crowdstrike which is the technology firm that supposedly did the investigation on the DNC servers that were supposedly hacked by the Russians. When the president of that firm had to testify behind closed doors. Under oath, he said they had no evidence.
Leahy: Of course with no evidence, they needed to start an investigation right?
Carmichael: They had no evidence that the Russians had ex-filtrated.
Leahy: Ex-filtrated. As opposed to infiltrated. What’s the definition of ex-filtrate?
Carmichael: Getting the information from. Pulling the information out of. They said they found zero evidence that any Russians pulled information off the Democratic servers. By the way, it was the Crowdstrike, the so-called Crowdstrike report that said that the Russians did hack which now turns out to be exactly false. Completely backward. That’s why the so-called 17 agencies all agreed was true.
And now we know that it’s 17 agencies were buffaloed or they were Obama appointees which are similar to Chuck Todd. (Leahy chuckles) I’m going to take that over to a segway to Chuck Todd’s apology over the weekend were on the previous Sunday show he took a sentence that Bill Barr said in an interview with Catherine Harris and he cut it in half. Or at least I thought he had cut it in half.
Leahy: It appeared that he intentionally misled his audience of what Barr said.
Carmichael: The sentence was cut in half. In his apology, he made it clear that he wasn’t the one who cut it in half and that his producers and editors are the ones who cut it in half and he didn’t know.
Leahy: I thought he was in charge of everything he’s saying?
Carmichael: No. Michael, what we have said and I have stipulated, all of these people on these big left-leaning media outlets are paid millions of dollars to say what they are told to say. They are not intelligent enough. They truly aren’t intelligent enough to look at what they’re told to say and question it. And they don’t. And Chuck Todd has admitted it.
Leahy: He’s admitted it.
Carmichael: He has now admitted it.
Leahy: He admitted that he’s just what?
Carmichael: He is a tool.
Leahy: He’s a tool.
Carmichael: Chuck Todd is just a tool.
Leahy: (Chuckles) He has admitted it.
Carmichael: Anyone who has not seen his apology needs to go to YouTube and see it.
Leahy: We’ll play it tomorrow.
Carmichael: It is priceless how clearly he states that he’s a tool without using the tool word. (Leahy laughs) But the rest of its right there.
