Left Claims 'Russian Meddling' to Protect Bidens
Russians allegedly hacked into Burisma, which Democrats conveniently blame on Trump.
As America enters another election year, the Leftmedia and Democrats hope to resurrect their 2016 narrative about Russian interference in their ongoing effort to paint President Donald Trump as illegitimate. On Monday, many Leftmedia news outlets “soberly” covered a report released by Area 1, a Silicon Valley-based cybersecurity firm, that alleged Russia had successfully hacked into Burisma, the Ukraine gas company that infamously employed Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden on its board of directors.
The report’s authors sought to elevate the political relevance of their findings, writing, “Our report is not noteworthy because we identify the GRU [a Russian military intelligence unit] launching a phishing campaign, nor is the targeting of a Ukrainian company particularly novel. It is significant because Burisma Holdings is publically [sic] entangled in U.S. foreign and domestic politics.” The authors also add, “The timing of the GRU’s campaign in relation to the 2020 U.S. elections raises the spectre that this is an early warning of what we have anticipated since the successful cyberattacks undertaken during the 2016 U.S. elections.”
Just what the Russians were after or what information they may have collected is not known, but that hasn’t stopped the Leftmedia and Democrats from seeking to establish an absolutely unsubstantiated narrative. You see, this is all part of a grand conspiracy by Russia to aid Trump once again by working to discredit Joe Biden, who would be a shoo-in to win the election just like Hillary Clinton was if it hadn’t been for Russian meddling.
As Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates ridiculously asserted, “This proves that both Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin understand the true stakes of this election. Joe Biden is running to bring our country together and restore American leadership in the world — repairing the damage Donald Trump has done to our national security and alliances. Donald Trump tried to coerce to Ukraine into lying about Joe Biden and a major bipartisan, international anti-corruption victory because he recognized that he can’t beat the vice president.”
The question is, if Joe Biden had nothing to hide and had no concerns over his son Hunter’s dealings with Burisma, then why even give this story the time of day? If there’s nothing damning in Burisma’s records, then Russia has nothing on Biden. In reality, this story is designed as a setup to write off any damaging information that might emerge regarding the Bidens and Burisma as merely “Russian meddling” and then spin the blame onto Trump for allegedly encouraging this meddling. The bigger questions remain unanswered, and those have to do with the Bidens, Burisma, and Ukraine.
