Trump Impresses So Media Distracts With Another Russian Collusion Story

It’s no coincidence that a year-old meeting became “breaking” news during Trump’s successful European trip.

On Saturday, the day after Donald Trump met and faced off with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, The New York Times trolled out yet another article aimed at reviving the Leftmedia’s Trump/Russia collusion conspiracy. This time the story relays the existence of a meeting that took place in June 2016 involving Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner and a Russian lawyer. Allegedly the lawyer claimed to have dirt on the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton being funded by Russians. But Trump Jr. said he ended the meeting after about 20 to 30 minutes because the lawyer’s comments were “vague, ambiguous and made no sense.” So has the Leftmedia finally found its long-sought-after smoking gun? Nope.

A better question to ask is this: What did New York Times “journalists” know and when did they know it? How “convenient” for the Times to suddenly come across “breaking news” of a year-old meeting directly after Trump confronts Putin over Moscow’s meddling in the election. Clearly the timing is designed to overshadow another successful foreign trip for Trump. And once again the sources are anonymous government officials. We’ve seen this movie before, and it’s getting old.

The Times and its media kissing cousins are eagerly engaging in an anti-Trump smear campaign using trickled-out fake news. Their insistence on pushing the Trump/Russian collusion conspiracy is evidence of a no-holds-barred effort to impede and undermine Trump’s presidency. The irony is that the Leftmedia has been playing right into Moscow’s hands, as Putin would love nothing more than to undermine Americans’ trust in our electoral system. But Trump is not the darkness threatening the American republic; the source of that darkness is these fake news stories published by the Leftmedia.
