The liberal media’s obsession with Donald Trump continued on Monday, when NBC News national security contributor and former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi to claim that the former president is a threat to national security because he is using “conspiracy as a deliberate strategy.”
He said this after host Nicolle Wallace asked him if Trump is a “clear and present danger,” a shameless question in it of itself, to say the least.
Figliuzzi Sounds Off
“You’re absolutely right. Let’s be clear here,” Figliuzzi said. “We’re not talking about conspiracies that just spontaneously sprung up from the population as they do urban legends that need to get swatted down or that take on a life of their own.”
“We’re looking at conspiracy as a deliberate strategy, deception as a strategy,” he added. “You could argue that the former president now out of office has absolutely no guardrails and zero accountability and can engage in this even more often.”
“We are now living in an era where it is true if you say it enough, it becomes reality. Repeated rhetoric becomes someone’s reality,” Figliuzzi continued. “It can be used as a strategy against us and the American people. So we’ve got to get far more educated on this in terms of savviness, digital literacy.”
Figliuzzi Doubles Down
“We see that language in the new strategy to combat domestic terrorism,” the former FBI assistant director stated. “But this can’t happen fast enough. Until we fill that out, yes, the former president remains a threat because the conspiracy theories will still be used to move forward his agenda, and people will believe it.”
“We’re dealing with one right now, which is the FBI did it,” Figliuzzi continued. “The FBI orchestrated the entire insurrection on January 6, right? And it has taken on a life of its own in multiple facets from the Revolver online magazine to Tucker Carlson to members of the GOP in Congress.”

It should be noted that Wallace’s ratings have plummeted on MSNBC in the wake of Trump leaving office, according to The Washington Examiner.
As much as she despises him, Wallace has no choice but to talk about Trump as much as possible even with him out of office, because most of her “fans” will simply turn off the TV if she doesn’t.
How sad is that?
