Senate Russophobes Falsely Accuse Moscow of US Election Meddling 

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Accusations of Kremlin US election meddling are part of an elaborate hoax to delegitimize Trump for defeating Hillary, along with vilifying Moscow.

Dark forces are behind it, media scoundrels complicit in the scam, reporting disinformation, Big Lies and fake news, abandoning journalism the way it’s supposed to be on this issue and others mattering most, especially on war and peace, along with anything about Russia.

In March, a previous article explained a GOP-led House Intelligence Committee probe found no evidence of Russian US election meddling.

Rep. Michael Conaway said his panel “found no evidence (of Kremlin) collusion, coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.”

House and Senate investigations have been ongoing since January 2017, special counsel Mueller’s since last May.

Yet no evidence of Russian US election meddling was found because there’s nothing to find – no matter how long investigations continue.

Last October, Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr admitted his committee found no evidence of Russian US election meddling.

Yet he said “consensus among (committee) members and staff (is) that we trust the (intelligence community’s) conclusions” – even without evidence proving them, proof positive along with lots more about a debauched system.

On Wednesday, the Senate Intelligence Committee agreed with the intelligence community, falsely claiming Russian election meddling – contradicting a House panel saying otherwise.

Undemocratic Dem Senator Mark Warner claimed “(t)he Russian effort was extensive, sophisticated, and ordered by President Putin himself for the purpose of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton” – a bald-faced lie. 

The Senate committee cited no evidence backing its clearly fabricated claim – the Big Lie to remain outstanding as long as US dark forces intend perpetuating the hoax.
