Collapsed Lafayette Square narrative is yet another 'fact-checked' story gone bad

Recommended Posts

Another left-leaning media narrative with fact-checker cover went belly-up this week, as an Inspector General report found former President Donald Trump did not have Lafayette Square forcefully cleared of protesters so he could pose in front of a church last year.

"Fact-checked" mainstream media stories unhelpful to Republicans or conservatives – like ones related to Russia or vaccine development or police shootings or the origins of the Coronavirus – have later fallen apart or been amended, updated, corrected, or retracted over the past few years. And observers are taking note it doesn't seem to go the other way.

But an investigation released this week by Interior Department IG Mark Lee Greenblatt says U.S. Park Police and the U.S. Secret Service deemed it necessary to remove protestors from the park on June 1, 2020, in order to install anti-scale fencing. The decision was reached after at least 49 U.S. Park Police (USPP) were injured while policing protests days earlier.

At 6:30 pm???  At Barr's apparent suggestion they're clearing an area (with tear gas) to set up perimeter fences at 6:30 pm??  An area that Trump then just happens to decide to walk through to get to a church where he poses with a Bible?

Now, I'd find that believable if they cleared the area during the early afternoon or late morning.  But after normal work hours?  Doesn't add up.

Timeline of the events of that day is here:  https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/06/02/timeline-clearing-lafayette-square/

It has an air of “we’ll excuse that offence, in order to build a bridge” to me.

When Greenblatt mentions "our career investigative staff" - he's talking about the Deep State, isn't he?

I thought the Deep State was against The Donald, or does the DS automatically switch to bring against whomsoever is the sitting President each election?

Look, there's probably very fine people on both sides.
