A “blockbuster” story out of McClatchy today accuses Jared Kushner of manipulating his digital operation prior to the election to help Russia help Trump.
There is no evidence provided and the sources are anonymous. This is another leak and it’s allegedly out of the Mueller investigation.
The House and Senate Intelligence committees and the DoJ are said to be examining the Trump campaign’s digital operation under Jared Kushner. They are probing into whether it guided Russia’s sophisticated voter targeting and fake news attacks on Hillary.
The story claims that Kushner directed bots to Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania to defeat Hillary in those states and did so in coordination with Russia.
There is no doubt the Trump team targeted states that showed signs of leaning away from Hillary. They are the same states where her base was not excited about her candidacy and didn’t come out to vote.
There is nothing new in the story. It’s a well-developed version of what we already know. Pencil neck Adam Schiff, the House intel ranking Democrat, said the accusations have been proven and the Trump team committed all these heinous acts. The irresponsible Democrat has not a scintilla of proof.
All of their sources spoke anonymously because Mueller’s investigation is confidential. That was how they phrased it in all seriousness.
Some guy named Mike
Deep into the article the authors quote some unknown Pentagon official named Mike Carpenter who had his suspicions that someone was cooperating and targeting a disinformation campaign. He didn’t name any American suspects or provide any evidence.
Of course someone in the U.S. could have helped. The United States is open and free. In fact, our borders were unguarded. There is one report out that China alone has 25,000 spies in the United States.
In the end, someone has to explain why Putin wouldn’t want Hillary. She gave Putin a U.S. uranium mine in exchange for more than a hundred million dollars to her Foundation and lucrative speaking engagements for Bill. She would never protect Poland with a missile defense system. Certainly, she would have continued downgrading our military. Why would Putin want Trump over her?
Again, this McClatchy report was based on air. We will hear this kind of thing every day for the next four years because the left wants to destroy any chance Republicans have of ever leading. They want a one-party socialist state. The useful idiots in the Republican Party, like John McCain and Lindsey Graham, gladly assist.
McCain said his sons would have been court-martialed
McCain actually told the media his sons would have been court-martialed if they did what Donald Jr. did.
Senator John McCain sharply criticized Donald Trump Jr. for taking a meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya during the 2016 campaign, claiming such an interaction would have been unacceptable when he was the Presidential nominee in 2008.
“I can assure you the people around me would not be inclined to do that kind of thing, especially not one of my sons. ‘Cause my sons—they’re in the military. You know, they’d probably be court-martialed,” McCain said Tuesday, the Weekly Standard reports.
Democrats colluded with the Russians
Finally, if anyone colluded with the Russians, it was the Democrats as The Washington Times pointed out.
The disinformation dossier on Trump came from a former British intel agent named Christopher Steele who was paid by Democrat operatives at Fusion GPS with money from a Hillary backer.
Mr. Steele explained his sources were almost exclusively sources linked to the Kremlin and Russian President Putin.
There are more ties but that one is being largely ignored.
