Does anyone else notice the irony of the left’s complaints that Donald Trump will “destabilize” the world order when it’s Barack Obama and his media henchpersons who are practically starting a new Cold War over the alleged Russian “hacking” of the presidential election?First of all, there was no “hack” of the election. You’d think if the Russians (or anyone for that matter) had wanted to “hack” the election to benefit Donald Trump, they wouldn’t have given Hillary Clinton close to three million more popular votes, right? So much for THAT fake news story.
Now the story is the Russians hacked into the DNC’s and John Podesta’s emails released by Wikileaks which revealed for all the world to see the collusion and corruption in the Democrat Party and Hillary camp. It bears repeating that no one on the left has EVER denied the veracity of the content. The storyline is that the Russians “meddled” in the U.S. elections by releasing information damaging to the Democrats (thereby helping Donald Trump).Except the Russians didn’t release the emails. Wikileaks did, and now founder Julian Assange is dropping a little truth bomb about the Obama administration.
Real Clear Politics reports, In an exclusive interview with FOX News Channel’s Sean Hannity the founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange said Russia was not the source for the DNC and John Podesta hacks.
HANNITY: Can you say to the American people, unequivocally, that you did not get this information about the DNC, John Podesta’s emails, can you tell the American people 1,000 percent that you did not get it from Russia or anybody associated with Russia?
JULIAN ASSANGE: Yes. We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party.
Hannity’s full interview with Assange airs tonight at 10 pm.
ASSANGE: Our publications had wide uptake by the American people, they’re all true. But that’s not the allegation that’s being presented by the Obama White House. So, why such a dramatic response? Well, the reason is obvious. They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House. They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate President…
ASSANGE: Our source is not a state party, so the answer for our interactions is no. But if we look at our most recent statement from the US government, which is on the 29th of December, OK, we had five different branches of government, Treasury, DHS, FBI, White House presenting their accusations to underpin Obama’s throwing out 29 Russian diplomats. What was missing from all of those statements? The word WikiLeaks. It’s very strange.
Yes it is strange. WikiLeaks has all but disappeared off the radar screen of the mainstream media and apparently the White House and five different branches of government. Forget about “shooting the messenger” — they’re ignoring him all together because it doesn’t fit the false narrative they’ve concocted.Also strange is the fact that the mainstream liberal media seems to think the American people still believe their crap, despite the election results and the fact that they’ve been so obviously exposed.
Perhaps one day a disgruntled Bernie Sanders supporter at the DNC will finally come forward and admit to having obtained the emails and forwarding to Wikileaks. But until then, we shall have to endure this spurious storytelling from the left.
