New York Times editorial* published on Thursday that lays out the case for how the Hillary Clinton campaign was colluding with the Russian government, and then tried to cover it up by blaming her election loss on Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found, Politico is a leftist organization by the way.
A Ukrainian-American operative who was consulting for the Democratic National Committee met with top officials in the Ukrainian Embassy.
Then again in March, Mr. Putin’s spokesman said that Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak met with members of Mrs. Clinton’s campaign several times while she was running for president in 2016. Further, the campaign never disclosed the number or nature of these secret meetings. What are those meeting about?
The leftist media only wants to focus on one side, Trump Jr. Meeting about mostly nothing, seeming the Russian attorney had nothing to say of value.
Democrats, as indicated above, also have a long history of business and political ties with Russia, for the simple reason that there is money to be made by people who can peddle their political connections. And sometimes these Democrats don’t disclose their Russia ties. If this is all the Times needs to accuse Trump and his associates of having “an unusually extensive network of relationships with a major foreign power,” then Clinton is equally guilty. (The one difference is that Hillary actually has a record of being soft on Russia.)
Of course, Clinton isn’t president, so who cares? Still, even if she had won the presidency, would The New York Times, or anyone else for that matter, have cared one whit about her “extensive” ties with Russia? Somehow, that seems unlikely.
