What It Means That ‘Hillary Clinton Did It’

20 May 2022 ~~ By David Zukerman

The Wall Street Journal ran a scathing editorial on May 20, called "Hillary Clinton Did It".
This editorial began: "The Russia-Trump collusion narrative of 2016 was a dirty trick for the ages -- and now we know it came from the top -- candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton." The editorial quickly explained: "That was the testimony Friday by 2016 Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook in federal court [in Washington, D.C.], and while this news is hardly a surprise, it's still bracing to find her fingertips on the political weapon." (Also not surprisingly, The May 20 print edition of The New York Times did not include a story on Mook's testimony.)
Mook's testimony was heard at the trial of attorney Michael Sussman, charged with lying to the FBI in calling to their attention a story that Donald J. Trump, by means of connections with Russia's Alfa Bank, was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The lie at issue was not the false claim about a Trump-Alfa connection, but the charge that Sussman brought this matter to the FBI as a good citizen, and not as a representative of the Clinton campaign.
As the Journal editorial noted:
"Prosecutors say [Sussman] was working for the Clinton campaign." The editorial pointed out, "Mr. Mook said Mrs. Clinton was asked about the plan [to call attention to the Trump-Alfa ties] and approved it. A story on the Trump-Alfa Bank allegations thus appeared in Slate, a left-leaning online publication."
The concluding paragraphs of the editorial are worth quoting in full:
"In short, the Clinton campaign created the Trump-Alfa allegation, fed it to a credulous press that failed to confirm the allegations but ran with them anyway, then promoted the story as if it was legitimate news. The campaign also delivered the claims to the FBI, giving journalists another excuse to portray the accusations as serious and perhaps true."

"Most of the press will ignore this news, but the Russia-Trump narrative that Mrs. Clinton sanctioned did enormous harm to the country. It disgraced the FBI, humiliated the press, and sent the country on a three-year investigation to nowhere. Vladimir Putin never came close to doing as much disinformation damage."

~Snip~
Never in the history of this Republic have so many citizens been so ill-served by so many "elitists" in government and the media.

Commentary:
Indeed, most of the press will ignore disclosure of the source of the baseless accusations of Trump-Russia collusion
Case in point....
Hillary is neither scared nor disturbed that these revelations have come to light.
Sure, some of her lapdogs like Sussman and perhaps Elias may go to jail, but Hillary will not. Just as no matter what Hunter and the Biden crime family have committed,
Remember if Red Kennedy could get away with murder in plain sight, what have Democrats got to fear.
Orwell said it best.... "Some pigs are more equal than others".

Everywhere but nowhere
It means nothing!

The political class has separate rules than the worker class.

It won't be hard to prove that Sussman is guilty of reporting a false story. He's admitted as much. The only way to nab Hillary is to find proof that she told them to run the story.

One thing that it means is that the Dem Voters are brainwashed cultists if they continue to trust the Media and their Dem leaders.
The Hillary scandal leads into the Obama spying on Trump scandal.
Then we have the 2020 election scandal that will eventually be exposed.

Since there's clear proof she paid for it and approved the "leak" to the NYT so in a fair trail her ass would be cooked.

Getting a fair trial in DC however is just about impossible.

More than a few people need to go to jail over this,
Who? Why? Politics isn't a crime. Opposition research isn't a crime. Dumping a scandal about your opponent isn't a crime.

Did Trump ever go to jail for his dirty tricks against his opponents in the 2016, or 2020 presidential contests? Nope!

Sussman isn't being charged with giving a false story to the FBI, he's charged with allegedly lying to the FBI, about giving them the info on his own accord or doing so for a paid client, Hillary..

No one is being charged with giving a fake story to the FBI. The story about Russian ALPHA Bank and a Trump Organization server communicating with each other was true....and it is still an unknown, as to why.....
