The FBI and Russiagate: Facts or Fabrications

Thomas Riggins

Well, here's the evidence that has so far been made public, with more to come, that the Putin/Russiagate scandal was cooked up by elements of the Obama administration's intelligence services to help Clinton win: it was our own government not the Russian government that tried to manipulate the election and sabotage our democracy. The corruption of the top leaders of both parties, but with respect to the Russiagate hoax, especially the Democrats, may have really bad consequences for them in the midterms. Those on the left who mindlessly went along with the hoax, even when there was no real evidence to back up the charges, and still promote and defend Hillary, have only themselves to blame for the aid and comfort this scandal will give the ultra-right. Let's hope they will learn from their mistakes and end their rightward drift and return to the progressive left camp, but if the past is prelude, they, as did the Bourbons, will have learned nothing and forgotten nothing.

Special Report: In the Watergate era, liberals warned about U.S. intelligence agencies manipulating U.S. politics, but now Trump-hatred has blinded many of them to this danger becoming real, as ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern notes. By Ray McGovern…
