It appears there has been a major twist in the left’s Trump-Russia collusion narrative. It seems the theory that the Trump campaign collaborated with the Russian government to influence the election has been dealt another blow.
On Saturday morning, President Trump stated that he believed Russia attempted to undermine his 2016 campaign. He tweeted, “In other words, Russia was against Trump in the 2016 Election – and why not, I want strong military & low oil prices. Witch Hunt!”
The president included a recent Fox News report in the tweet. The report discusses the details of Bill Browder’s testimony before Congress earlier this week. Browder, the co-founder and CEO of Hermitage Capital, stated that Fusion GPS — the firm that hired Christopher Steele to write the now-debunked Russian dossier — was tied to the Russian government. The firm was working on behalf of the Russian government to ease the sanctions that were imposed on Russia. But that’s not all — it gets even better!
Browder accused Fusion GPS of organizing a smear campaign against him. This campaign was allegedly led by none other than Russian Lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who met with Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner during the 2016 campaign. The left immediately jumped on this story as evidence that the campaign colluded with Russia — however, the facts show that no real information was given at that meeting.
The dossier in question leveled salacious allegations against President Trump and implied that the Russian government might have information that could be used to blackmail the president. Fusion GPS’ ties to the Russian government — and their actions against the president — could indicate that Putin was not just targeting Hillary Clinton. If this is true, it could cast major doubt on the idea that Trump worked with the Russians to influence the election.
The Fox News report adds another layer of intrigue to the ongoing Russia saga. The prevailing theory was that the Russian government wanted Donald Trump to win the election. However, if they were involved in the creation of the false dossier, it shows that they are not as friendly to the president as the left wants us to believe. Not only that, Trump and Putin have already butted heads on a few different issues, including Syria. The theory is that Trump worked with Putin to win the election in exchange for special favors, but President Trump’s actions since being elected do not reflect this.
If the establishment media wants to stay relevant, they must start reporting on all of the facts involved in a news story. Interestingly enough, the major news outlets have been suspiciously silent on the Fusion GPS issue. Whenever a story about “Russiagate” breaks, the media is quick to report on it.
However, if evidence that contradicts the Russiagate narrative surfaces, they report on it very little — if at all. This is one of the reasons why the American public has stopped trusting the media. We want news, not propaganda.
