MSNBC surrounds the wagons on Hillary

Yesterday on Andrea Mitchell's MSNBC show she spoke with Chris Chilla on Hillary's Money trail problem with the expected cover.

ANDREA MITCHELL: Hillary Clinton wrapping up a week that started in New Hampshire and ended at Tina Brown's Women in the World. But ended also fending off attacks from the Benghazi Select Committee and that new book, Clinton Cash.
Joining me now to sort it all out for our Daily Fix, Chris Cillizza, MSNBC contributor, founder of Washington Post's Fix blog, and New York Times political reporter Jeremy Peters, right here.
Well, Chris Cillizza, it's been the week that was and Hillary Clinton had a tough time with the Cash book. But truth be told, having gone through it last night once we got the book yesterday, there are a lot of holes. There is the question of, how do you connect the policy that she was pursuing as a secretary of state with the allegation that money was being contributed to the charity or speeches were being booked for Bill Clinton that wouldn't have otherwise been booked? You know, the timing may be fortuitous or suspicious or coincidental, but you can't make that connection in a lot of cases.
CHRIS CILLIZZA: Proving a political prid – quid pro quo – it's hard to say, it's hard to prove, Andrea. It's just very difficult, because as you say, a donation coming in and the State Department saying something or Bill Clinton giving a speech or whatever it may be, unless you can prove in an e-mail, in a text, in a phone call that it was directly linked one to the other, it's just tough. My guess with the book is if you like Hillary Clinton, you're going to largely dismiss it. If you don't like Hillary Clinton, you're going to see lots of things in there that deserve more reporting. Like most things with Hillary Clinton, sort of, people divide along their preconceived opinions about her.

Well Andrea couldn't make a connection to truth if it bit her in the fanny.  The laughable part is about the "email trail".  I mean seriously?

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

Monday Morning Intelligence with Kool Aid and the NY Times - UPDATE

Followup to previous post.

NY Times: 9/11 Commission's Staff Rejected Report on Early Identification of Chief Hijacker

Ok, I've been on the phone now for...oh, about three days, to some old chums in Tampa, checking this story out, asking questions,...etc. So far what I've heard is that IF this story is true, then those who are really in the know in the Intel world are feeling like a bunch of little red-hair step-childred.

Ed. Morissey is ready to hang the 911 Commission out to dry......mmm,

Ed, not so fast my friend.

Again, I am amazed at the vercacity the NY Times and AP is getting on this story, and from the same conservative bloggers who are normally parsing every "dot and tittle" the Times puts out. Who would think?...

Yeah, there is a lot of "anger" because of "Gorelick" fever where the blogshere and conservative media rightfully called attention to her conflict of interest while serving on the commission. But we can't let the "gotc…
