Fox News guest suggests possibility of FBI plot to assassinate Trump before he took office — Video

While appearing on Tuesday’s edition of Fox News’ “Outnumbered,” guest co-host Kevin Jackson floated the possibility that FBI agents who sent anti-Trump text messages may have planned to kill Donald Trump before he took office, The Hill reported.

According to The Hill:

“Well, I think they’re going to say, what was his intent, right?” Jackson asked, referring to a quote from FBI agent Peter Strzok, which referred to an “insurance policy” against Trump getting elected.

“Because that’s exactly what FBI Director — former FBI Director [James] Comey said when he was letting Hillary Clinton off the hook. And his intent, regardless of whether it was an assassination attempt or whatever, it was definitely something,” Jackson added, to the other hosts’ surprise.

“Whoa, whoa,” co-host Harris Faulkner could be heard saying.

Jackson, a radio talk show host and author of “Race-pimping,” went on to say the FBI’s “fingerprints” were all over the 2016 presidential election.

“Well, I’m just saying, we don’t know what it was,” he further said.

“When you say, ‘we’ve got to make sure that this guy doesn’t get in at all cost,’ what does that mean?” he asked. “So I’m saying there’s a spectrum of what does it mean, but one thing that we know for sure is that he was plotting in an election against a candidate, and there’s FBI fingerprints all over this.”

Faulkner and others pushed back against Jackson’s assertion.

“Because I know how things get clipped on social media, I just want to press in on the fact that no one has floated any sort of an idea that it was…” she began.

“Oh, it’s been floated. When I talk about this, I’m talking about social media stuff and, you know, that’s out there, I’m not talking about media sources,” Jackson said.

“Nothing credible,” one of the other hosts said.

“Well, I mean, yeah,” Jackson said in response.

Here’s video of the exchange:

The left-wing Daily Beast, citing the Soros-funded Media Matters, said Fox News is “no stranger to giving airtime to unfounded or debunked right-wing conspiracy theories.”

But is it really so far-fetched to think that someone may have seriously considered murdering Trump to keep him out of office?

As I reported after the election, several GoFundMe pages were set up with the express purpose of funding the assassination of the newly-elected president.  Liberals across the country also suggested and even threatened to kill Trump.

Rhetoric from Maxine Waters, the California Democrat obsessed with impeachment and Russia, inspired calls to murder the president.  Waters, by the way, has refused to condemn threats and calls to kill Trump.

Given the rhetoric from the left, and even some in the so-called “mainstream media,” it’s understandable that someone might speculate that such a plot existed.

Strzok, The Hill added, was removed from Mueller’s team after it was discovered that he wrote: “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office—that there’s no way he gets elected—but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”
