So Far So-So

An interesting perspective, and particularly relevant given the multiple connections between the FBI’s Russia Hoax and the UK. The atmospherics and voices of participants add texture to the story. I get the impression though that The Telegraph is doing its bit to help the British government distance itself from the scandal and toss Christopher Steele under a bus albeit a double-decker. I wonder if the lies told by the FBI to the FISA court will be discussed in future episodes along with the falsehoods peddled by now former intelligence officials. Since those corrupt practices did not take place on British soil, exposing those abuses of government power may not come within the remit of this podcast. Nevertheless, I plan to listen to every episode and I recommend you do as well.

Still deciding.

So far, it sounds like he is taking the Democrat’s line. Podcast is well done and easy to listen to but he has definitely taken the bait hook, line, and sinker. I will keep listening and hope he tells BOTH sides of the story!
Well, I kept listening and unfortunately it is riddled with MSM talking points. So sad, this is why Americans don’t trust the mainstream media anymore!

Hoped I would learn something. Ridiculous wast of time

I suffered through all 6 episodes hoping that I would gain some objective insight into the issues.

Stop the spin! Stop the rhetorical questions.

Episode 6 was the final straw. Thank God it was the last one.

What a complete waste of time.
