Elon Musk has found something else to agree with Republicans about, namely, the Russian Collusion Hoax.
Musk made his view on the matter known in a tweet that he released this week.
It started with the following tweet from Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH). Jordan posted the tweet last Monday, May 16.
Jordan wrote: “Christopher Steele created the dossier. Glenn Simpson sold it to the press. Michael Sussman took it to the FBI. And, Democrats and the media lied to you about it all.”
Four days later, on May 20, Musk replied to Jordan’s tweet, writing, “all true.”
“Bet most people still don’t know that a Clinton campaign lawyer, using campaign funds, created an elaborate hoax about Trump and Russia,” Musk added. “Makes you wonder what else is fake.”
Musk attached to his tweet a link to a BBC article having to do with the ongoing trial of Clinton-linked attorney Michael Sussmann, who stands accused of lying to the FBI. The BBC reported on courtroom testimony that Sussmann “lied to the FBI to ‘manipulate’ the agency in order to win” the 2020 presidential election.
Musk is turning red
Recently, Musk found that he is in agreement with Republicans on many issues. Most notable would be his agreement with Republicans about the importance of free speech. Musk has made it clear that this is one of the top reasons why he has sought the acquisition of Twitter.
In other tweets, Musk has made it clear that, although he has voted for Democrats in the past, he is going to start voting for Republicans.
“In the past, I voted Democrat because they were (mostly) the kindness party,” Musk wrote. “But, they have become the party of division & hate. So, I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold.”
Musk then followed this tweet up with another in which he wrote, “judging by the relentless hatestream from the far left, this tweet was spot on.”
The significance of Musk’s conversion to the Republican Party ought not to be underestimated. He might just bring many more over with him.
