Is the Daily Kos Guilty of Obstruction of Justice?

Did the Daily Kos collude with Putin to silence Black Lives Matter?


WASHINGTON, D.C. (Accredited Times) – The Daily Kos/Black Lives Matter scandal exploded early Monday morning as anonymous sources raised the prospect of Russian collusion and possible obstruction of justice in new bombshell developments in the case.

The Daily Kos has faced an avalanche of controversy from progressive activists in recent days for its apparent efforts to silence Black Lives Matter. The racially charged controversy erupted late last Thursday when Accredited Times commentator Black Lives Matter (“BLM”) posted an article, Death By Cop, to the Daily Kos. Daily Kos users wrote glowingly of the article, but Daily Kos moderators nonetheless sought to silence BLM from using the phrase “Black Lives Matter” in an apparent effort to stymie the Black Lives Matter movement.

“Are you saying that I can’t say BLACK LIVES MATTER?” BLM asked late last Thursday. “I will keep saying BLACK LIVES MATTER over and over again until the day I die. I don’t care if you attempt to censor us or stop us from saying it.”

Now anonymous sources have raised the prospect of Russian collusion and possibly even obstruction of justice.

“I think the Daily Kos elites just hate Black Lives Matter”, one anonymous source told us. “They were originally open to the movement, but when Black Lives Matter shut down a Bernie Sanders event during the election campaign, that was it for them. The Daily Kos and other affiliated media outlets have mostly been on radio silence about the Black Lives Matter movement since then”.

Another anonymous source raised the prospect of obstruction of justice, a felony under federal law. Under 18 U.S.C. § 1512(b)(3), “Whoever knowingly uses intimidation, threats, or corruptly persuades another person, or attempts to do so, or engages in misleading conduct toward another person with intent to . . . hinder, delay, or prevent the communication to a law enforcement officer or judge of the United States of information relating to the commission or possible commission of a Federal offense . . . shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both”.

Legal experts told us that an obstruction argument would be “frivolous”, meaning groundless, because there was no actual hindrance of any communication to any law enforcement officer relating to the commission of an actual federal offense. Progressive activists, however, have argued strenuously that the Daily Kos “knowingly” threatened Black Lives Matter and that the threats should result in a criminal indictment.

According to one anonymous source, the prospect of obstruction indicates the possible involvement of yet another unwelcome character: Vladimir Putin.

“There isn’t any actual evidence of Russian involvement in the Daily Kos scandal — no witnesses, no emails, no memos, no documents, nothing. They haven’t even proved that the Russians hacked the Daily Kos website. But, hey, that didn’t stop those idiots from making the same stupid arguments about Trump, so why not?” one anonymous source wondered.

The racial controversy has triggered progressives around the world and threatened the Daily Kos’ polling numbers. “Actually, we found that the Daily Kos’ readership numbers are unchanged, but again those idiots write the same stupid crap about Donald Trump every day, so why not make the same same stupid argument in your idiotic ‘objective’ article?” the same anonymous source asked.

Experts remained skeptical of the situation, a turn of events that could spell doom for people we dislike. “Come on, you idiots don’t actually even have any anonymous sources or experts with any real information, do you?” the same anonymous source prodded. “Those are just your friends making up whatever stupid crap you want to write”.

I think there’s certainly a solid legal case to make here, BLM – the AT’s lawyers are still looking into it. I disagree however that there’s no evidence for Trump’s collusion with Russia – there is evidence, it’s just confidential. The evidence has been discovered by high level anonymous sources and is documented in classified reports. The reports conclude that Trump colluded with Russia, but the detail is confidential. We need to trust them.

At least 17 impartial US government intelligence agencies have given off the record confirmation that Putin manipulated the elections to elect Trump. Case closed; Trump is Putin’s ‘agent orange’.

These agencies are hamstrung by legal restrictions set up when no one would believe a dangerous far right populist idealogue could emerge as premier in the USA, as happened early 20th century Germany.

Legal experts agree that it is constitutional to kill American citizens abroad without due process; suppose the miscreant is in the air -is he on ‘American soil’?. Does the constitution cover people flying in planes (hint: does it even mention planes?)?.

If Obama had a fault it was that he muzzled the power of our 17 assorted intelligence agencies to investigate and act, his authority as a constitutional scholar meant a failure to properly encourage the sharing of sigint on Trump’s Russian connections during the elections.

A tragic accident would soon be forgotten, and the country would now have been enjoying the benefits of the first female president of the United States of America. But Obama always played by the rules, and now we have a Russian puppet.

Yes, if our intelligence agencies had properly investigated Trump’s Russian ties before the election was over, Trump wouldn’t have been able to obstruct justice like he’s doing now. This is exactly what Hitler did to people trying to investigate him after he was elected – will we ever learn from history?

The IRS is totally impartial, as is the FBI. How do you explain an FBI investigation of Bernie if that isnt so?.

This all smacks of conspiracy theory by greedy right wingers who dont want to pay their fair share.

The Uranium thing is a red herring; the accredited media know it is a nothing burger, and have ignored it.

I hate to say it, but your insinuation that Obama used the IRS for political purposes smacks of subliminal racism.

It’s OVERT racism! And his criticism of Hillary is thinly veiled sexism!

“Those are just your friends making up whatever stupid crap you want to write.” – a perfect summary about AT (PBUAT). I thank the AT staff, for coming out of the closet, and showing themselves for what they really are.

If what we write is such garbage, then why is it mirrored by the most illustrious news publications on the planet such as the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Guardian?
