Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer, among others, just highlighted the fact that the mainstream media is more or less ignoring significant courtroom testimony revealing that Hillary Clinton, herself, signed off on the Russia-Trump collusion hoax.
The testimony came during the trial of Clinton-linked attorney Michael Sussmann. Special Counsel John Durham, who is leading the Russian Collusion Hoax investigation, has charged Sussmann with lying to the FBI.
Durham alleges that Sussmann lied about who he was working for when he presented the FBI, in 2016, with information that he claimed showed a link between former President Donald Trump and Russia.
Sussmann claimed he wasn’t working for anyone. But, Durham says that Sussmann was at least working for Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
This past week, Robby Mook, the former Clinton campaign manager, took the stand. While being questioned by Durham’s team, Mook was asked what the Clinton campaign knew about the Russia-Trump collusion lie.
Mook said that he was first told about the link by Clinton campaign Attorney Marc Elias. But, he said that he wasn’t sure whether it was true or not, so he decided to pass it on to a reporter to further investigate it.
Before he did so, though, Mook said that he went around essentially asking for permission. Hillary Clinton was among those he sought permission from, and Mook testified that Clinton gave the go-ahead.
“She agreed,” Mook said.
Fleischer, on Saturday, pointed out that the New York Times, among others, appears to be running cover for Clinton.
“Today’s NYT has no story about Hillary Clinton authorizing a dirty tricks campaign about false allegations of Trump collusion with Russia,” Fleischer tweeted. “This is a perfect example of why the MSM is in denial and decline.”
“There are stories about the 1/6 investigation, abortion, Ginni Thomas, and the decline of the Bush family. But not a word about one of the worst, most damaging dirty tricks that helped launch three years of bitter animosity,” Fleischer added.
The sad part is that, by now, none of us are surprised by this. This is what the media has become: a propaganda factory for the political left.
