From the beginning of her covering the Russia hoax, Sara A. Carter was sure the story she discovered about a fake dossier and an effort to ensure President Donald Trump would never take office would be one the mainstream outlets would pick up.
She quickly learned that wasn’t the case.
“I remember when I first started breaking stories on the FBI, on Andrew McCabe, on James Comey, what was going on in the FBI, the unjust investigation into Michael Flynn, the FISA, the unmaskings, I thought ‘well this story’s only gonna be handled by me for a short time period because the New York Times, the Washington Post, all the other news outlets with all the money and all the power behind them are gonna jump on this and they’re gonna expose this,” Carter told Fox Business host David Asman Thursday night.
At first, Carter was “stunned” at the fact that those mainstream news outlets weren’t covering or investigating that story further. Soon, she learned it was because of their “hatred towards President Trump.”
It’s still the case today. For example, this week former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates testified before the House Judiciary Committee and revealed many surprising facts about the origins of the FBI’s targeting of former White House National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, saying the Bureau’s Director James Comey went “rogue.” That big nugget of information wasn’t covered by ABC, NBC, and CBS. In fact, those outlets chose not to cover the hearing altogether.
“So they were willing to let these agencies be weaponized, spy illegally on a presidential campaign all because they themselves have animous towards this President,” Carter said. “And, remember, David, a lot of their sources were these folks that were basically breaking the law… yeah, the same people that are being investigated by John Durham.”
She added, “So it’s not surprising to me at all that they just ignored Sally Yates completely, they ignored the idea of what she said, that he went ‘rogue,’ and she should’ve been pressed further because January 25th, when she ran back to the White House to get Flynn fired.”
“Just remember, this is how the rats try to jump off a sinking ship.”
With reports that U.S. Attorney John Durham is nearing an end to his investigation into the origins of the Russia probe, Carter says she’s still cynical as to whether anyone will actually be held accountable and if there will be any indictments.
“Look, we saw what happened under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, absolutely nothing, even with Huber,” Carter explained. “And, now, we’re sitting around waiting. All of us, scratching our heads wondering ‘well what’s going on here? Why hasn’t there been a report? Why hasn’t there been an indictment?”
“We know that they left out exculpatory information on this FISA, they were spying illegally on Carter Page, they made up information, we have a fake Russian dossier, I can go on and on and on about what happened here. We all know the facts.”

CA to provide all low-income illegal immigrants health care at a cost of ‘$2.7 billion a year’
On Thursday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a $307.9 billion operating budget “that pledges to make all low-income adults eligible for the state’s Medicaid program by 2024 regardless of their immigration status” reports the Associated Press.
The guarantee of free health care for low-income immigrants here illegally, is a “move that will provide coverage for an additional 764,000 people at an eventual cost of about $2.7 billion a year” adds the AP.
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, a health care nonprofit, people living in the country illegally in 2020 accounted for roughly 7% of the population nationwide, or about 22.1 million people. The border crisis and number of migrants entering the United States illegally has skyrocketed to historic levels since 2020 when President Joe Biden took office.
Medicaid nationwide is the current combination of federal and state governments assisting Americans and low-income adults and children to receive free health care, but the federal government does not cover those living here illegally.
“Some states, including California, have used their own tax dollars to cover a portion of health care expenses for some low-income immigrants” reports the AP. “Now, California wants to be the first to do that for everyone.”
“This will represent the biggest expansion of coverage in the nation since the start of the Affordable Care Act in 2014,” said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access California, a statewide consumer health care advocacy group. “In California we recognize (that) everybody benefits when everyone is covered.”
While 92% of Californians currently have some form of health insurance, “that will change once this budget is fully implemented, as adults living in the country illegally make up one of the largest groups of people without insurance in the state” the AP concludes.
