Final US Senate Fake News Russiagate Report

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

The CIA invented Russiagate US election meddling hoax remains a Big Lie that refuses to die.

The latest, alleged final, Senate Intelligence Committee report report laid an egg like earlier fake news that alleged Russian US election meddling no evidence proved happened — because none exists.

Since Russiagate surfaced during the US 2016 presidential campaign, reports by the US intelligence community, House, Senate, and special counsel Mueller presented no proof in support of claims about Russian meddling in the US political process.

In modern memory, no evidence suggests any nations ever tried to manipulate results of US elections — in sharp contrast to scores of times that the CIA and other US dark forces interfered in foreign elections to influence their outcomes.

In their book titled “Demonstration Elections,” Edward Herman and Frank Broadhead discussed manipulative US political practices abroad, saying:

“A (electoral) circus is held in a client state to assure the population of the home country that (US) intrusion is well received.” 

“The results are guaranteed by an adequate supply of bullets provided in advance.”

Manipulated elections by the US in client states aren’t open, free, and fair. They’re held to install pro-Western puppets in power.

Establishment media pretend sham elections are legitimate.

Throughout the post-WW II period, US dark forces interfered politically and belligerently in scores of nations to secure and maintain imperial control.

Not a shred of evidence was ever presented by Congress, the US intelligence community, Robert Mueller, or anyone else to suggest US election meddling by Russia or any other countries.

There was none in 2016, earlier, nor does anything suggest that US November elections are threatened by foreign interference from abroad.

Whenever fake news Russiagate accusations surface, material presented repeat what long ago was debunked as Big Lies.

In response to the latest US Senate Intelligence Community report, Tass quoted an earlier statement by Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov saying the following:

“The Kremlin regrets that as the US presidential elections in November 2020 approach, more and more reports of alleged attempts by Russia to interfere in the electoral process will appear,” adding:

These phony claims “have nothing to do with the truth.”

Below is a sampling of screaming headlines in response to the latest US Senate Intelligence Committee report released on Tuesday:

NYT: “GOP-Led Senate Panel Details Ties Between 2016 Trump Campaign and Russia (sic)”

The Times claimed “an extraordinary set of facts” that don’t exist show that “(t)he Russian government disrupted an American election to help Mr. Trump become president (sic),” adding:

“Russian intelligence services viewed members of the Trump campaign as easily manipulated (sic).”

CIA-connected WaPo: “Senate report details security risk posed by 2016 Trump campaign’s Russia contacts (sic).”

WaPo admitted that the Senate report “does not explicitly accuse the Trump campaign of direct collusion with Russian intelligence” — because no evidence proved what didn’t happen.

WSJ: “Senate Panel’s Russia Probe Found Counterintelligence Risks in Trump’s 2016 Campaign (sic)”

Reuters: “Senate committee concludes Russia used Manafort, WikiLeaks to boost Trump in 2016 (sic)”

AP News: “Trump campaign’s Russia contacts ‘grave’ threat, Senate says (sic)”

Fox News: “Senate Intel says…Russia ‘took advantage’ of Trump’s transition team (sic)”

CNN: “Bipartisan Senate report details Trump campaign contacts with Russia in 2016, adding to Mueller findings (sic)”

National Pentagon Radio (NPR): “Senate Releases Final Report On Russia’s Interference In 2016 Election (sic)”

Other establishment media reports were similar.

On Tuesday, Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Marco Rubio said the following:

“We can say, without any hesitation, that the committee found absolutely no evidence that then-candidate Donald Trump or his campaign colluded with the Russian government to meddle in the 2016 election.”

Instead of responsibly saying case closed, no illegal Trump/Russia connection, no evidence of Kremlin US election meddling, Rubio continued pushing the Big Lie that won’t die, adding:

“We found irrefutable evidence of Russian meddling (sic).”

“Now, as we head towards the 2020 elections, China and Iran have joined Russia in attempts to (meddle in) our electoral process and our republic (sic).”

Neither the Senate Intelligence Committee report or Rubio’s statement presented any evidence to support accusations made.

They were Big Lies similar to earlier ones since 2016, claims backed by nothing, rendering them baseless.

Russiagate, Chinagate, Irangate, and other propaganda campaigns against nations on Washington’s target list for regime change are part of the US landscape.

Instead of exposing them by truth-telling reports, establishment media consistently support misinformation, disinformation, fake news, and Big Lies over journalism the way it’s supposed to be.

Phony claims of Russian and other foreign US election meddling are here to stay.

Ahead of November elections and their aftermath, they’ll be endless fake news reports of foreign interference in the US political process.

Repeating earlier phony claims, no credible evidence will be presented ahead because there’s none to present.

Establishment media carpet bomb followers with state-approved propaganda and junk food news — truth-telling on key issues consistently suppressed.
