New Senate Report Pushes the Big Lie About Russian US Election Meddling

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

The long ago debunked hoax about Russian US election meddling keeps resurfacing because establishment media push the Big Lie.

Endless months of Mueller, House, and Senate probes found no corroborating evidence. Nor did the US intelligence community.

Former House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes earlier said: 

“After more than a year, the committee has finished its Russia investigation and will now work on completing our report.”

“We’re dealing in facts, and we found no evidence of collusion.” Senate findings at the time were similar.

The best the FBI and CIA US intelligence community members could come up with about alleged Russian US election meddling was saying they have “high confidence” it happened.

The NSA disagreed, expressing “moderate confidence” in that conclusion. The US intelligence community, Mueller, House, and Senate reports on alleged Russian US election meddling presented no evidence backing the claim because none exists.

Without it, allegations and accusations are groundless, how legitimate tribunals would rule on this issue, case closed.

Not in the US! Not anything related to Russia and other US adversaries!

Nearly the entire Congress and establishment media promote disinformation and Big Lies that won’t die. Carpet-bombed with rubbish gets most people to believe bunkum fed them.

A newly released Senate Intelligence Committee report put an exclamation point on the Big Lie about “extensive” Russian 2016 election meddling.

If falsely and absurdly claims Moscow targeted the electoral system in all 50 states. Like previous reports since 2016, not a shred of evidence backed claims made.

The report is heavily redacted to conceal the hoax it’s perpetuating — falsely claiming with no corroborating facts that Russia “directed extensive activity, beginning in at least 2014 and carrying into at least 2017, against US election infrastructure at the state and local level.”

US senator, presidential aspirant, right-wing extremist, Kamala Harris, a dubious figure Law Professor Marjorie Cohn accused of “egregious prosecutorial misconduct” when serving as California attorney general, falsely said the following:

“The facts are clear (sic). The Russian government mounted a deliberate and systematic attack on America’s election infrastructure in 2016 (sic).”

Indeed the facts are clear! The above statement is a malicious bald-faced Big Lie — reflecting her earlier prosecutorial misconduct and how she’d disserve ordinary Americans, the country, and world community if elevated to the nation’s highest office.

The new Senate report falsely accused “Russian hackers” of infiltrating or trying to infiltrate US electoral systems in all 50 states — while saying no evidence shows results were changed, an obvious red flag exposing the Big Lie.

The US is a one-party state with two extremist right wings. What possible benefit could Russia or any other country gain by trying to influence the result of US presidential, congressional, or other elections when results always turn out the same — dirty business as usual winning every time.

Names and faces alone change. US policies on major issues are backed by both wings of its war party.

On issues of war, peace, corporate empowerment, police state toughness on nonbelievers, and increasing totalitarian rule, undemocratic Dems at times are more extremist than Republicans.

Further, how could any foreign nation undermine the US democratic process that doesn’t exist, that never existed in America from inception.

The nation is governed of, by, and for its privileged class exclusively, ordinary people disserved and exploited to benefit Wall Street, other corporate interests, and high-net worth individuals.

The Russiagate witch hunt is one of the most disturbing political chapters in US history — clear evidence, along with volumes more, of a nation off the rails, its debauched governance too corrupted and depraved to fix.

The new Senate report turned truth on its head, saying: “Based on what the (intelligence committee – IC) knows about Russia’s operating procedures and intentions more broadly, the IC assesses that Russia’s activities against US election infrastructure likely sought to further their overarching goal: undermining the integrity of elections (sic) and American confidence in democracy (sic).”

US officials lie, cheat, commit high crimes, other wrongdoing, and otherwise disserve their constituents. 

They long ago lost the public trust. The rarest of rare exceptions prove the rule.

The only solution is sustained grassroots revolution to try changing things. 

The alternative is continuing the path to full-blown tyranny, ruin, and possible humanity-destroying nuclear war.
