The Russian US Election Meddling Hoax Won’t Die
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
If mainstream journalism the way it should be existed in the US and West, instead of press agent reporting that serves wealth and power interests, the Big Lie of Russian US election meddling never would have gotten out of the starting gate.
Not a shred of credible evidence suggests Russia or any other countries ever interfered in the US election process.
Indisputable evidence shows the US interfered with and continues interfering in countless numbers of elections worldwide, what’s gone on throughout the post-WW II period.
US elections are farcical when held, always turning out the same way.
One-party rule with two extremist right wings runs things. Dirty business as usual wins whenever elections are held.
House, Senate, and Mueller reports last year found no evidence of Russian US election interference, nothing suggesting an illegal or improper Trump campaign connection to Russia.
Yet phony accusations persist. The Big Lie refuses to die.
On Wednesday, CIA-connected/Russophobic Washington Post editors resurrected the issue, saying:
“The Senate Intelligence Committee has released a bipartisan report with a stark bottom line: What…Trump calls the “Russia hoax” isn’t a hoax at all (sic),” adding:
It “unanimously (claims) Russia sought to subvert Americans’ belief in our democracy (sic), bring down Hillary Clinton (sic), and bolster her rival (sic).”
The phony report includes no credible evidence because none exists — not earlier, not now, not ever.
Why would Russia or any other country try to interfere with America’s political process that’s been hard-wired and unchangeable since Republicans and Dems alone took turns in power — the US system since the 19th century.
No credible US intelligence community or Senate Intelligence Committee investigations were conducted, just the illusion of claiming it to concoct phony anti-Russia accusations.
They’ll never end as long as US dark forces intend bashing the country and its leadership.
The same goes for other nations on Washington’s target list for regime change, ones unwilling to sacrifice their sovereign rights to US hegemonic aims.
Republicans and Dems on the Senate Intelligence committee lied, saying:
They produced a “coherent and well-constructed…basis for the case of unprecedented Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election (sic).”
Russophobic WaPo editors applauded the phony report, saying:
“The Senate Intelligence Committee deserves accolades for its clear-eyed examination of a subject that shouldn’t be political but has become polarizing thanks to the president’s provocations (sic).”
There’s plenty to criticize Trump for, notably his high crimes of war and against humanity, his disdain for the rights and welfare of ordinary people everywhere, his racism, narcissism, serial lying, and much more.
In office because of Russian support was and remains a bald-faced Big Lie.
If credible evidence existed, it would have been released long ago by the House, Senate, and/or US intelligence community.
It never was because there is none — just phony accusations with nothing but hot air preventing the Big Lie from dying.
