Trump Goes On Wild Twitter Rant About Debunked Hillary/Russia Conspiracy Theory

-

If you believe in a supreme power, now is the time to get praying. Just when Americans likely thought that President Donald Trump maybe had some functioning brain cells left, he proved us all wrong.

As a result of the ongoing House Intelligence Committee investigation into President Trump and his campaign team’s communication with Russia, due to concerns over potentially colluding to secure the presidency, Trump is losing his marbles.

Maybe because he has something to hide.

In yet another distraction technique, President Trump sent out this asinine tweet late Monday evening:

‘Why isn’t the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech money to Bill, the Hillary Russian “reset,” praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company. Trump Russia story is a hoax. #MAGA!’

Hm, let’s see Donald, maybe because much like your claim that President Barack Obama ‘wiretapped’ Trump Tower — this allegation against Bill and Hillary Clinton was proven to be untrue.

He is referring however, to the baseless conspiracy theory that speculated a “quid pro quo” deal whereby the Clinton’s traded one-fifth of America’s uranium deposits for a $145 million donation to the Clinton Foundation. Except neither Clinton had the authority, nor made any attempts to obtain the authority, to make that deal. They had absolutely nothing to do with it. Moreover, it was determined that only one person even remotely related to the deal made any donation to the Clinton Foundation, and the following explanation was provided by The New York Times:

‘His donations through the Fernwood Foundation included $1 million reported in 2009, the year his company appealed to the American Embassy to help it keep its mines in Kazakhstan; $250,000 in 2010, the year the Russians sought majority control; as well as $600,000 in 2011 and $500,000 in 2012. Mr. Telfer said that his donations had nothing to do with his business dealings, and that he had never discussed Uranium One with Mr. or Mrs. Clinton. He said he had given the money because he wanted to support Mr. Giustra’s charitable endeavors with Mr. Clinton. “Frank and I have been friends and business partners for almost 20 years.”‘

This is an allegation which Donald Trump threw around back in September as well, resulting in a variety of memes circulating crucifying Hillary which was essentially a giant propaganda scheme to discredit her and hurt her chances at the presidency.

Furthermore, Vladimir Putin identified that he did not want Hillary Clinton to become president because he felt she was at fault for dissidence within Russia. He acknowledged that she had a greater aversion to his government and his country than Donald Trump. That, in essence, was the entire motivation for the Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. They wanted Donald Trump to win because he was seen as the friendlier option for Russia!

There is so much wrong with this rant, one could go on forever. At the base of it though, is another blatantly obvious distraction attempt from the Trump/Russia investigation and the propagation of “alternative facts” and legitimate “fake news.”
