The media has been helping Democrats hide the truth, and win elections, for as long as anyone can remember. Most mainstream “news” platforms are little more than propaganda machines for liberals. The Wall Street Journal, however, just broke ranks big time.
According to Twitchy, in a recent Wall Street Journal Op-Ed Ford O’Connell wrote:
“The Russia-Trump collusion narrative of 2016 and beyond was a dirty trick for the ages, and now we know it came from the top—candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton. That was the testimony Friday by 2016 Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook in federal court, and while this news is hardly a surprise, it’s still bracing to find her fingerprints on the political weapon. Mr. Mook testified as a witness in special counsel John Durham’s trial of Michael Sussmann, the lawyer accused of lying to the FBI. In September 2016, Mr. Sussmann took claims of a secret Trump connection to Russia’s Alfa Bank to the FBI and said he wasn’t acting on behalf of any client. Prosecutors say he was working for the Clinton campaign.”
“In short, the Clinton campaign created the Trump-Alfa allegation, fed it to a credulous press that failed to confirm the allegations but ran with them anyway, then promoted the story as if it was legitimate news. The campaign also delivered the claims to the FBI, giving journalists another excuse to portray the accusations as serious and perhaps true. Most of the press will ignore this news, but the Russia-Trump narrative that Mrs. Clinton sanctioned did enormous harm to the country. It disgraced the FBI, humiliated the press, and sent the country on a three-year investigation to nowhere. Vladimir Putin never came close to doing as much disinformation damage.”

Thank you, Wall Street Journal, for talking about how Hillary Clinton will do whatever it takes to bring down an opponent. She failed, however, when it came to Donald Trump, at least in 2016. But her false Russia-Trump collusion claim did do considerable damage, even though it was ultimately disproved. She cost this country millions, with the investigation that stemmed from her lies. Should she be forced to repay the country?
