CNN is trying their best to continue the silly Trump Russia collision story. They just published a story this week that unnamed sources allege that Russian spies attempted to “use” Page to “infiltrate” the Trump campaign.
(CNN) The FBI gathered intelligence last summer that suggests Russian operatives tried to use Trump advisers, including Carter Page, to infiltrate the Trump campaign, according to US officials.
The new information adds to the emerging picture of how the Russians tried to influence the 2016 election, not only through email hacks and propaganda but also by trying to infiltrate the Trump orbit. The intelligence led to an investigation into the coordination of Trump’s campaign associates and the Russians.
These officials made clear they don’t know whether Page was aware the Russians may have been using him. Because of the way Russian spy services operate, Page could have unknowingly talked with Russian agents.
Think about what this story implies. It admits that the Russians were unsuccessful in infiltrating the Trump campaign. Why are we still talking about this? Because the democrats have nothing positive on their side to talk about.
They just lost a major election. They were caught lying, cheating, and literally committing crimes and so the narrative must be about Trump as the corrupt immoral one. It’s a way to deflect from their sins.
Doubling down as they normally do with Trump, CNN invited an ex-Spy to discuss the report. He as well admits that there is really not much there. It’s an awkward interview as the anchors push and probe for Something they can use against Trump, but the guest literally tells them that most of these types of operations are “counterproductive.”
This is a fail if I’ve ever seen one. Time for the democrats to give it up.
