White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany verbally body-slammed CBS News “reporter” Steven Portnoy, who smugly suggested that Obamagate is not a real scandal.
Obamagate is the wide-ranging cluster of crimes perpetrated by the Obama FBI and DOJ to destroy the Trump presidency since the day Donald Trump got elected. They include:
- The illegal unmasking, entrapment, and malicious prosecution of Michael Flynn.
- Obama FBI’s multiple FISA abuses to obtain sham warrants to illegally spy on Trump aides.
- The unlawful leaking of top-secret intel to the media to push the Russia-collusion hoax.
All these activities culminated in the Democrats’ botched impeachment, which was done to stage a failed coup against President Trump.
At Friday’s White House press briefing, Steven Portnoy of CBS News suggested that the Obamagate crimes were not illegal.
Portnoy disingenuously asked: “The President calls it ‘Obamagate.’ What is it? What crime was committed, and in what way?”

Kayleigh McEnany is an attorney who graduated from Harvard Law School. She replied: “I’m really glad you asked because there hasn’t been a lot of journalistic curiosity on this front. There were a number of questions raised by the actions of the Obama administration. The Steele dossier was funded by the Democratic National Committee. The opposition political party to the President was used to attain [bogus] FISA warrants to listen in on conversations of people in the Trump campaign.”

McEnany continued: “There was the unmasking of the identity of Michael Flynn. And we know that in a January 5th meeting in the Oval Office with President Obama, Sally Yates from the Department of Justice learned about the unmasking — not from the Department of Justice or for the FBI — but she learned about it from President Obama and could barely process what she was hearing at the time. Because she was stunned at his knowledge of that.”
McEnany also blasted the left-wing media for gaslighting the public with the Russia hoax, which they pushed even when they knew it was a lie.

Kayleigh said: “For three years, you all talked about collusion and there was none. It was a huge injustice — not just to this administration — but to the American people who deserve truth, not the alleging of absolutely false allegations against the president.”

McEnany then urged the media to do their jobs by investigating Barack Obama’s weaponization of the intelligence community to illegally spy on his political opponents, entrap them, and fabricate evidence to maliciously prosecute them.
“We know that there was a lot of wrongdoing in the case of Michael Flynn. The FBI notes, for instance, that [entrapped him by asking should we] by saying “get him to lie?” as they pontificated about their strategy.
We know that the identity of this three-star general was leaked to the press — a criminal leak to the press of his identity and violation of his Fourth Amendment rights. These are very serious questions. They’ve been ignored by the media for far too long. Justice does matter. Those questions, they matter.”
Portnoy bleated: “I heard you mention one thing you said was criminal. And that was what?”
Kayleigh McEnany responded by rattling off the long list of misdeeds and crimes committed by former Obama FBI and CIA officials.
“The leaking of [Michael Flynn’s] name and the very real questions that have been raised,” she said. “Andy McCabe leaking to the Wall Street Journal and then lying about it. I’m happy to talk about James Clapper lying before Congress saying the NSA does not monitor phone calls. John Brennan telling Congress that the bogus “Steele dossier played no role in the Russia probe,” when in fact we know it did and was the basis for obtaining [sham] FISA warrants.”

McEnany added: “There is a lot of mistruths there that were said — many of them under oath…So perhaps you should look into it and get me the answers. That is, after all, the job of “reporters” — to answer the very questions that I’ve laid out. And I hope you guys will take the time to do it.”
