If anyone thought the Democrats or the mainstream media is giving up on their obsession with President Trump and his alleged collusion with the Russian government they were obviously misguided. As one story fades away, proven to be a non-story due to lack of credible evidence another pops up in the form of the president’s son and his meeting with a Russian lawyer.
CNN and other news sources would have their viewers believe these stories are new and credible but such could not but be further from the truth. Amidst the baseless hunt for evidence of Russia- Trump collusion, a different picture is emerging – public record reveals that it is the Democrats who have used Moscow disinformation first to seek to influence the presidential election and now to undermine Trump’s agenda.
That disinformation campaign has been fueled by a dossier written by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. The document’s information has been proven to be built on Russian-fed information that sought to point to Trump’s campaign aides in the hacking of Democratic Party computers.
Democrats have been more than willing to circulate that now discredited information on numerous occasions.
Steele was bankrolled by a Hillary Clinton backer through Fusion GPS, a Democrat-funded opposition research firm. Fusion GPS distributed the dossier among journalists and Democrats which was then passed along to the FBI. The Bureau used that information in large part to investigate Mr. Trump’s campaign aides.
Mr. Steele has made it clear that his unproven charges came almost exclusively from sources linked to the Kremlin. He identifies his sources as a “senior Russian government official,” “a senior Russian Foreign Ministry figure,” and a former “top level Russian intelligence officer active inside the Kremlin.”
The same Democrats who have repeatedly condemned Russia’s election interference fake news and hacking email servers quote freely from a dossier more or less ghost written by the Kremlin.
If anyone colluded with the Russians, it was the Democrats,” said a former Trump campaign adviser who asked not to be identified because of the pending investigations. “After all, they’ve routinely shopped around false claims from the debunked Steele dossier, which listed sources including senior Kremlin officials. If anyone should be investigated in Washington, it ought to be Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Mark Warner and their staffers.”
In other words, there is undeniable evidence of indirect but significant collusion between Democrats and Russian disinformation sources.
This eagerness to quote from a debunked source is nothing new. Rep. Maxine Waters (Dem – CA) appeared on MSNBC in March saying she believed the dossier section on Mr. Trump and supposed sex acts with prostitutes in Moscow.
“Oh, I think it should be taken a look at,” she said. “I think they should really read it, understand it, analyze it and determine what’s fact, what may not be fact. We already know that the part about the coverage that they have on him with sex actions is supposed to be true. They have said that that’s absolutely true. Some other things they kind of allude to. Yes, I think he should go into that dossier and see what’s there.”
Before the dossier story broke, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (Dem – NV) was already quoting the document last August. With the Clinton campaign in trouble, Mr. Reid made public a letter to then- FBI Director James B. Comey.
Reid called for an investigation into Carter Page who lived and worked in Moscow as a Merrill Lynch investor. According to Reed – drawing directly from discredited dossier – Mr. Page “met with high-ranking sanctioned individuals. Any such meetings should be investigated and made part of the public record.”
Reid and other Democrats apparently count on the fact that no one will ever actually read the Kremlin sourced dossier since Mr. Steele clearly states in that document that his anti-Trump accusations come from the Kremlin. Democratic leadership apparently has no problem in willingly repeating Moscow propaganda for public consumption.
No Democrats have embraced the Russian-sourced dossier more than members of the House intelligence committee, which is investigating Moscow’s interference in the election.
James Comey, Navy Adm. Michael Rogers, and others in intelligence community also continue to refer to the same tainted information.
One person who says he knows it is a fabrication is Russian entrepreneur Aleksej Gubarev. He is suing Mr. Steele for libel in London and BuzzFeed in Florida.
Perhaps civil suits can bring to light information that Democrats would rather remain hidden in the shadows.
