A story that would qualify as fake news would be the Marxist driven story that the Russians manipulated the American elections for the purpose of defeating Hillary Clinton. We have heard many accusations, but have been offered no proof that the Russians had anything to do with the leaks of these emails. A story in the national press stated that the CIA made the claim. When called to go before Congress, the CIA stated they were too busy to testify before the Congress, even though it is their constitutional responsibility
Congressional oversight is oversight by the United States Congress over the Executive Branch, including the numerous U.S. federal agencies. Congressional oversight includes the review, monitoring, and supervision of federal agencies, programs, activities, and policy implementation.
During all the accusations and claims made mostly by the losing Marxist Party, including the claim that they can read the mind of Putin because they know he wanted Trump to win, the DNC has never denied the accuracy of any of the emails that were released. In fact, individuals lost their jobs because of the accuracy of the leaked information including than DNC Chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Even John Podesta has never denied the accuracy of his leaked emails.
If the emails had been altered to give false information, the claims of the Marxists would have far more validity because one could make an argument that the election was swayed with false information. Although that would still be farfetched based on past elections including the election in 1964 between Johnson and Goldwater or the election in 1828 between Jackson and Adams. Perhaps more false and misleading information was reported in those elections than true and factual information.
Now the White House, through Press Secretary Earnest, has joined the perpetuators of false news with the following incredible comment: “There’s ample evidence that was known long before the election and in most cases long before October about the Trump campaign and Russia — everything from the Republican nominee himself calling on Russia to hack his opponent,” Earnest told reporters. “It might be an indication that he was obviously aware and concluded, based on whatever facts or sources he had available to him, that Russia was involved and their involvement was having a negative impact on his opponent’s campaign.”
“That’s why he was encouraging them to keep doing it,” Earnest continued, referring to the then-GOP presidential candidate’s invitation during a late-July news conference for Russia to find Clinton’s missing emails. At the time, Trump added that Russia would “probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”
Earnest was referring to a comment Trump made In a July news conference when Trump said this: 'Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,' Trump said. 'I think you'll be rewarded mightily by our press!' Trump was talking about the emails Hillary Clinton had deleted so she would not have to surrender them to Congress or anybody else. Trump went on to say this: “No, it gives me no pause,' the celebrity businessman said. 'If Russia or China or any of those country gets those emails, I've got to be honest with you, I'd love to see them.'
Not only would Trump have loved to see these emails, but Congress and all of America would have loved to have seen them. Yet, today we discuss an unproven and unprovable claim that Russia caused Hillary to lose the election, while nobody discusses the accuracy of the emails. The Marxists also do not want to discuss the real possibility that their candidate violated federal law, violated a congressional subpoena, and engaged in self-dealing while holding the office of Secretary of State.
No, the Marxists and their “useful idiots” choose to not only dwell on conjecture, but to promulgate even more conjecture from the White House, as opposed to looking at the real reasons Hillary lost. Hillary lost because she was a terribly flawed candidate promoting a terribly flawed philosophy; Marxism, the very philosophy this same White House followed for the last eight years. This election was a rejection of the past eight years as much as anything.
