Michael Hastings was that rarest of breeds: a mainstream reporter who wasn’t afraid to rail against the system, kick back against the establishment, and bite the hand that feeds him. On the morning of June 18, 2013, he died in a fiery car crash. But now details are emerging that he was on the verge of breaking an important new story about the CIA, and believed he was being investigated by the FBI. Now even a former counter-terrorism czar is admitting Hastings’ car may have been cyber-hijacked. Join us this week on The Corbett Report as we explore the strange details surrounding the untimely death of Michael Hastings.

  1. Great podcast James. Cyber hijacking of a car? If it did happen that way then as Richard Clark pointed out, it cannot be proven. Was it just an accident? Well it seems as the engine ended up over 50 feet away from the wreck then, this does not make any sense at all.

    • With the top of the range Mercedes Michael Hastings was driving being another factor to consider in this tragic death.

  2. ABC TV series “Designated Survivor”
    In Season 1 Episode 14, the corrupt deep state tries to kill former Chief of Staff Charles Langdon who knew about its false flag operation of blowing up the Capitol Building which killed the former President and all the high ranking officials.
    His car was remotely hacked and it drove off a bridge.
