I don’t know if there’s anything left to say about Trump, there have been so many empty words on both sides. I wanted to write something about the contents of the WikiLeaks releases, but this article goes above and beyond in its analysis of the tactics employed by the Clinton campaign to collude with the media, manipulate identity politics, dump Sanders, elevate Donald Trump to the spotlight, and outright lie about Her socioeconomic priorites. These things aren’t speculation anymore. They have all been documented in the Podesta emails.
And before you say something stupid about Russia interfering with our elections, just read this. It is the *only* evidence put forth by our government for Russian involvement, and it can’t even make a concrete assertion, instead relying upon phrases like “are consistent with,” “we believe,” and “could have.” It explicitly states “we are not now in a position to attribute this activity to the Russian Government.” It was the conclusion of *two* intelligence agencies—not 17 as Clinton claimed in the third debate—one agency created by the Patriot Act (DHS) and one headed by the man who perjured himself in front of the U.S. Senate in 2013 (Jake Tapper) when asked about NSA surveillance. This document is the only primary resource for journalists, pundits, and bloggers articulating the certainty of Russian involvement.
Lastly, I would like to address another counterfactual meme currently in circulation: that the FBI “confirmed there was no criminality” in Clinton’s unsecured server set-up, which exposed classified information to the internet. In fact, what Comey recently confirmed was that the FBI had not changed its original conclusion. That conclusion was: Hillary Clinton violated U.S. Civil Code as Secretary of State and thereby committed a felony, but will not be recommended for indictment because it is unlikely she can be successfully prosecuted.
Here’s a great video from MSNBC on the whole server dust-up, but seriously, read the article I linked to at the beginning of this post, it will show you exactly how the sausage is made with thorough research into the Clinton campaign that has been lacking from other writers.
