Hillary Clinton goes down a list of things that we supposedly know but the first thing that should be noted in any discussion in which she is involved is the fact that she is a pathological liar. Everything that she says must be subsequently verified for accuracy. The statements she made about Russia came in the same interview with Chris Wallace in which Clinton was busted for lying about the statements of FBI Director James Comey regarding her lies about the criminal home server.
In her recent lies in the unending series, Clinton said, “We know that Russian intelligence services, which are part of the Russian government, which is under the firm control of Vladimir Putin, hacked into the DNC and we know that they arranged for a lot of those emails to be released. And we know that Donald Trump has shown a very troubling willingness to back up Putin, to support Putin.” The piece is mercifully cut off at that point by Fox and Friends, cutting to the couch.
Clinton appears to be attempting to avoid responsibility for yet more of her familiar careless handling of documents by blaming Russia and the “all powerful super villain Vladimir Putin” and connecting her opponent in her own crazy conspiracy theory with a foreign government. It’s the kind of crooked dealings she engages in on a daily basis through her foundation, but not the kind of thing that Donald Trump would do. Unlike her he’s neither criminal nor a traitor to his nation.
Kilmeade and Doocy point out the projection of her offenses upon Mr. Trump, as documented by Peter Schweitzer in his book, Clinton Cash. While the narrative is a convenient one for the Clintonistas, the man who set up the NSA surveillance system and has since become a whistleblower, Bill Binney, argues against its supposed veracity.
Binney believes it may have been the NSA who hacked the Democrats and then gave the information to Wikileaks. Their motivations may not have been the nefarious self-serving ones that are instinctive and reflexive for Mrs. Clinton but actually a patriotic response to the reckless release of sensitive information by the former Secretary of State.
