Entire Russian Hacking Story Falls Apart
Entire Russian Hacking Story Falls Apart
© JB Williams www.jb-williams.com
Thanks to advancements in social media, computer and internet technologies today, it is easier than ever for 14-year-old kids around the globe or foreign governments to “hack” pretty much anything they want to hack, including our Pentagon. The notion that Russia might have an interest in the outcome of our elections is no sillier than the interest our politicians have in foreign elections.
So, the Russian hacking narrative was not hard for even the average American to believe. We monkey around with other foreign elections like France and Germany – and even overthrow foreign governments at will, such as Egypt, Libya, Lebanon, Tunisia, Yemen and Syria. So, that pretty much justifies foreign interest and intrusions into our elections, doesn’t it?
However, in this case, the story appears to have been false, or at the very least, grossly exaggerated from the start. For over a year now and at the expense of millions in tax-payer funded investigations, the public charges have been as follows…
- Russia tried to alter our 2016 elections by hacking into our election systems
- Russia worked with Wikileaks to hack Democrat servers and expose DNC corruption
- Russia exposed criminal Clinton emails during the election to help Trump
- Members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in this effort
- Trump himself colluded with Russia in this effort
- 17 National Security Agencies confirmed these findings
- The effort resulted in a stolen election by Russia and Trump
These accusations have been atop every news outlet in America and around the globe for the past year. Every day, the New York Times, Washington Post and CNN would relaunch the narrative mostly using unsubstantiated and uncorroborated “unnamed sources” to claim that Trump and his campaign, along with Russia, were under investigation on this matter.
Despite repeated testimony from Obama Administration officials to the contrary, the news headlines continued. But in recent days, the entire story has taken a critical turn…
CNN Announcement: Three CNN journalists, including the executive editor in charge of a new investigative unit, have resigned after the publication of a Russia-related article that was retracted. Thomas Frank, who wrote the story in question; Eric Lichtblau, an editor in the unit; and Lex Haris, who oversaw the unit, have all left CNN.
“In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignations of the employees involved in the story’s publication,” a spokesman said Monday evening. An internal investigation by CNN management found that some standard editorial processes were not followed when the article was published, people briefed on the results of the investigation said.

However, thanks to Project Veritas, video footage confirms that the problems at CNN reach far above the paygrade of the three who resigned. According to John Bonifield a Sr. Producer at CNN, the problem goes all the way to the top of CNN, CEO Jeff Zucker. Reaching well beyond CNN staff, other left-leaning surrogates with media access perpetuate the problem despite the entire story being a “big nothing burger.”
From the top of CNN down, the entire operation was simply chasing a ratings bonanza with the knowledge that nothing they were reporting and promoting was true. The damage it has caused a duly elected administration is unparalleled in history. What CNN has done is far worse than anything they falsely accused Russia or Trump of doing. The resignation of three low-level fall guys is not nearly enough penalty for CNN.
In a June 29, 2017 “correction” posted at the back of the paper in the corrections section, The New York Times was forced to retract their endless reports of seventeen national security agencies confirming the Russian narrative. In the year-late NYT retraction, seventeen agencies reported was reduced to just four, which in reality is only three, the CIA, FBI and NSA. The fourth agency named by the NYT, Director of National Intelligence, is not an intel agency. It is a cabinet post held at the time by DNI James Clapper.
What the NYT retraction exposes is the Russian narrative was really only confirmed by three Obama Administration individuals, DNI James Clapper, FBI Director James Comey and CIA Director John Brennan, all of whom have testified before Congress that they had found no hard evidence that Russia had succeeded in hacking the election, or that the Trump campaign had any involvement in any such effort.

Proof that the NYT knew they had it wrong five months ago… A one paragraph “correction” buried in the back of the paper in NOT nearly enough penalty for the NYT involvement in reporting and promoting what they knew was a false narrative.
The Washington Post has been the worst offender of all, not only issuing a daily diet of “fake news” attacking Trump and his administration with the overt intent to undermine a duly elected President, they have invented numerous other “fake news” reports aimed at substantiating their other “fake news” stories.
Although the WaPo has yet to retract any of their baseless attacks on the Trump Administration, they have been issuing retractions of other “fake corroborating stories” they used to back up the “Russian hacking” narrative, such as their false report that Russia had hacked a U.S. utility grid in Bernie Sanders Vermont.
“News of the supposed hack had set off a firestorm of recriminations, with Vermont leaders calling Russian President Vladimir Putin “a thug” earlier Saturday, after one of the state’s electric utilities found a virus on a laptop computer. A utility spokesman has also told the Burlington Free Press the laptop was not hooked into the grid.”
“The Washington Post has retracted its story about Russian hackers penetrating the nation’s electricity grid with a virus found in a Burlington, Vt., electric company laptop. “Authorities say there is no indication of that so far [that Russians had penetrated the US electric grid],” according to an editor’s note attached to a corrected version of the story on the paper’s website.

READ Meet WaPo – Fake News Ground Zero to understand why WaPo is one of the most dangerous anti-American propaganda rags in America today. No penalty is high enough for WaPo…
So, the FAKE Russian narrative was launched by DNI James Clapper, FBI Director James Comey and CIA Director John Brennan. It was repeatedly leaked out to the press largely via WaPo, The New York Times and CNN. Then it was regurgitated by Obama-Clinton surrogates in interview after interview for almost a year now…
As the Russian hacking conspiracy theory falls apart, evidence of a very real conspiracy between Clinton, Obama, the DNC, their friends at WaPo, NYT and CNN, and their official surrogates to undermine the Trump Administration takes shape…
- Russia tried to alter our 2016 elections by hacking into our election systems – No evidence
- Russia worked with Wikileaks to hack Democrat servers and expose DNC corruption – Denied by WikiLeaks and no evidence
- Russia exposed criminal Clinton emails during the election to help Trump – No evidence of collusion between WikiLeaks and Russia, or Trump campaign
- Members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in this effort – No evidence
- Trump himself colluded with Russia in this effort – No evidence
- 17 National Security Agencies confirmed these findings – FALSE, it was only three people
- The effort resulted in a stolen election by Russia and Trump – FALSE – no such evidence
Since the multiple ongoing investigations into Russian hacking of the 2016 elections has turned up nothing other than a clear conspiracy by leftist political activists to undermine Trump, how much longer should taxpayers fund those ongoing investigations and when should investigations into the real conspiracy to undermine Trump begin?
FAKE NEWS is exactly what these so-called journalists are engaged in… all driven by Clinton and Obama administration officials and circulated by their leftist surrogates in the leftist media. Trump has called it right all along…
