Monica Crowley, who bowed out of a possible post in the Trump administration after she was accused of plagiarizing her work, lashed out at the charges saying she was the victim of a “political hit job” and claiming the plagiarism charges against her have been “debunked.”
Here she is with Sean Hannity. The entire clip as to be watched to be believed:
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): You were going to go to the administration, You got viciously attacked. And by the way you’re not the only one it’s Steve Miller, it’s even Melania, and they’re going after Jared, they’re going after Ivanka, they went after a 10-year-old kid, it’s pretty ugly. Now they’re going after Sebastian Gorka which is ridiculous. But it seems that everyone around the president’s getting attacked. I wanted to give you a chance because you hadn’t been out there publicly for personal and other reasons to respond to this.
MONICA CROWLEY: Well look, what happened to me is a despicable straight up political hit job. Ok, it’s been debunked, my editor has completely supported me and backed me up. There is a very toxic and is getting increasingly toxic and poisonous atmosphere of personal destruction in Washington and the media. It’s always sort of been there but now it’s at a whole different level. This is exactly why smart and good people do not want to go into government service. I will tell you that nothing and nobody is ever going to stop me from speaking out on the issues I care about, about the future of this nation.
In some ways, I was something of the canary in the coal mine, the attack on me was a test. What happened to me, what happened to General Flynn, what’s happened to Attorney General Sessions and others is all of a piece. There is a very dangerous and very effective destabilization campaign underway against this president, his administration and his agenda.
She goes on to say there is a large destabilization effort going on that is looking to take Trump down and “…personally destroy him, destroy his presidency and they’d like to see the man in prison.”
Crowley says she is not “overstating” things since she was a “victim’ herself.
I have to say; I can’t find any evidence the charges against her for plagiarism have been “debunked.” If her editor backs her up, why is her book not available for purchase in any format on Amazon (not even used)?
Her appearance comes off more like somebody who has sipped from the same batch of Kool-Aid given to Hannity, Laura Ingraham and others who are all aboard the Trump Train. The talk about the destabilization efforts sounds like the words of Alex Jones, not a scholar.
