Democrats Misrepresented Intel Claiming Russia Favored Trump

It appears likely that Adam Schiff and company are once again spinning yarns.

Intelligence officials are pushing back against recent Leftmedia claims that Russia was actively working to interfere in the 2020 presidential election to “try and get President [Donald] Trump reelected.” Following a closed-door February 13 House Intelligence Committee meeting in which top election-security official Shelby Pierson briefed lawmakers on Moscow’s interference efforts, The New York Times headlined its report on U.S. intelligence officials’ warning: “Russia Backs Trump’s Re-election, and [Trump] Fears Democrats Will Exploit Its Support.”

That report, which was quickly “confirmed” and disseminated across the Leftmedia landscape, predictably and understandably drew the ire of Trump, who disputed the claims as yet another politically motivated Democrat hoax. Trump likewise challenged a similar report a week later asserting that the Russians were actively seeking to interfere on Bernie Sanders’s behalf.

Now, as has become all too common during the Trump presidency, the Leftmedia’s reporting has been exposed for being nothing more than propaganda for the Democrat Party. You might call it fake news. NBC News reports, “Intelligence officials say that [the report of Russians seeking to help Trump’s reelection] was an overstatement, fueled, they believe, by a misinterpretation by some Democratic lawmakers on the committee.” In other words, it looks like yet another episode of the Schiff Show, as Hollywood wannabe Adam Schiff has pawned off another of his fictitious scripts as more “evidence” in support of the Democrats’ long-debunked Russia-collusion hoax.

Democrats still haven’t come to grips with the fact that Trump won the 2016 election fair and square. And their refusal to admit this reality and learn from it has led Democrats to the disastrous field of current presidential candidates over which they are now panicking. It’s easier to blame the Russians for supposedly “poisoning” Americans’ minds against their economy-killing, Liberty-destroying, big-government policy proposals than to acknowledge the fact that Americans simply don’t want what they’re selling. They still refuse to accept that Trump stands as the American people’s repudiation of their elitist, top-down, control-everything agenda.
