Dan Bongino Mocked For Wild Claim Mueller Is Investigating Trump to Protect Obama, Clinton: ‘Truly Crazy’
— Fox News (@FoxNews) May 7, 2018
Dan Bongino — the former Secret Service agent turned pundit and expert on the the criminality of the Russia investigation — declared on Fox News that special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe is really a “smokescreen,” manufactured to protect none other than Hillary Clinton.
Bongino, a frequent Fox News guest, made the claim while appearing on Mark Levin’s Sunday night show, Life, Liberty & Levin.
“Mueller’s sole purpose right now is to run a smoke screen while investigating Donald Trump, to protect Hillary and Obama and their empires,” Bongino declared.
Bongino then embarked on a wild theory about the FBI raid on Michael Cohen — which would require a dimly-lit basement and a large cork board to truly keep track of — that implicated The Atlantic Council, Ukrainian gas company Burisma, Joe Biden’s son, John Kerry’s stepson’s friend, CrowdStrike and The Clinton Foundation.
The frenzied bit of punditry earned mockery from a number of commentators on Twitter who struggled to make sense of Bongino’s declarations:

Absolute and utter civic poison. The civics version of the love canal. It’s worse than state TV. Muck less subtle and 400 percent crazy. There are absolute striking similarities between the daily narrative on RT and FNC

This is dumber than Posobiec’s Cinco de Mayo tweet from Saturday. And I’ve had two cups of coffee. https://t.co/DO0M1Aefig

Throwing a partisan fire-breathing former law enforcement officer on TV to objectively “analyze” legal issues that are so far beyond said officer’s circle of competence is simply stunning.

Bongino responded to one of his detractors, informing the critic that he “can’t debate morons.”
You’re a fool brother. You know it, we know it. You didn’t listen to a word of the show or you’d stop humiliating yourself on twitter. I’m blocking you simply because you’re a moron. I can’t debate morons.
