(National Sentinel) Welcome to Reality: Leftists long ago made up their minds that POTUS Donald Trump “colluded” with Russia to “steal the election” from Hillary Clinton, despite there being absolutely zero evidence that’s true.
Liberals have long-since closed their minds to the fact that there is nothing to prove the claim but quite a bit of evidence to disprove it.
The House Intelligence Committee released a report in April clearing the 2016 Trump campaign and the president himself.
Now, the report did note that Russia did try to “meddle” in the election, mostly by sowing division and distrust among the American electorate — something that the disgustingly dishonest establishment media has helped Moscow with.
But hasn’t Russia been doing this for a long time?
Yes, it has, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made that perfectly clear during an interview with Fox News on Thursday, as reported by The Daily Caller:
“It wasn’t just the 2016 election. Somehow America seems to forget the history of Russia’s efforts to undermine western democracy for decades now. It gets confused because there are those who want to make a partisan case of it with respect to the Mueller investigation,” Pompeo said of Russian interference.
The secretary of state continued, “The president understands what Russia did in our elections of 2016. He has empowered each of us to make sure that it doesn’t happen again in the 2018 or 2020 elections here in the United States as well.”
Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein got in on it too:
Pompeo’s comments were bolstered by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who said Thursday, ”This is not a new phenomenon. Throughout the 20th century, the Soviet Union used malign influence operations against the United States and many other countries. In 1963, for example, the KGB paid an American to distribute a book claiming that the FBI and the CIA assassinated President Kennedy.”
Also Thursday, FBI Director Christopher Wray not only downplayed the Russian threat, but he noted correctly that we face a bigger threat from China.
He said it’s a mistake to underestimate or downplay Chinese efforts, which amount to nothing short of Beijing wanting to “position itself as the sole dominant superpower. They’re trying to replace the United States in that role.”
He noted that China’s espionage is “a whole of state effort” which includes “economic espionage as well as traditional espionage and human sources as well as cyber means.”
“The volume of it, the pervasive of it, the significance of it, is something that I think this country cannot underestimate,” he noted.
If you listen closely, you can hear liberal heads exploding.
