An op-ed published by the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board blasted Hillary Clinton this week over her role in promoting the now-debunked Russia-Trump Collusion Conspiracy Theory.
Clinton’s own campaign manager told lawyers that the Democrat candidate personally approved the release of a story alleging connections between Donald Trump and a Russian-based bank.
From the Wall Street Journal:
The Russia-Trump collusion narrative of 2016 and beyond was a dirty trick for the ages, and now we know it came from the top—candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton. That was the testimony Friday by 2016 Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook in federal court, and while this news is hardly a surprise, it’s still bracing to find her fingerprints on the political weapon.
Mr. Mook testified as a witness in special counsel John Durham’s trial of Michael Sussmann, the lawyer accused of lying to the FBI. In September 2016, Mr. Sussmann took claims of a secret Trump connection to Russia’s Alfa Bank to the FBI and said he wasn’t acting on behalf of any client. Prosecutors say he was working for the Clinton campaign.
