Tony Shaffer on Russian Story: ‘The Mainstream Media Colluded With the Democrat Party’ Against Trump
SHAFFER: "I am, actually surprised that they retracted it. But this is actually not making progress. The premise is still incorrect. The four agencies which did supposedly make this assessment still — there is no basis, factual basis for that it’s a good beginning. But, no cigar. The atp, 28, 29 tools which the Russian — evidence of the Russian hacking, so-called hacking was simply going in to email accounts and there is no basis to really confirm the Russians did it that’s the biggest point. Secondly, to this whole narrative, look, this was put out there as weaponized information. We have talked about weaponized information here several times over the past five months. This was put out there for purposes of the Democrat party, people like Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, all the others to put this up as a weapon against president Trump. So, we have to understand that this was meant to do what it did. Attempt to undermine the belief that our election process was valid. It was. And simply put, the mainstream media colluded with the president — I mean, with the Democrat party to go against the president."
