How many times have how many Democrats told you that 17 agencies agreed there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia?
Personally, I’ve lost count.
But now, almost a year later, the New York Times – sheepishly and embarrassedly I would hope – is admitting that it was never true.
Excerpted from Holmes Lybrand’s article at dailycaller:
The NYT’s correction notes that: “The assessment was made by four intelligence agencies — the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Security Agency. The assessment was not approved by all 17 organizations in the American intelligence community.”
Former candidate Hillary Clinton made the claim in late May that all 17 intelligence agencies agreed “that the Russians ran an extensive information war against my campaign to influence voters in the election.”
Asking again, as I did earlier: how many times have you heard Democrats recite this “fact” as if it were the Holy Grail?
Now: how likely is this lie to be retracted by those Democrats, and the media which reported their words?
And how many of them will attack Hillary Clinton for lying about it?
And, since it was never true, why did the New York Times and all those other media venues so willing to parrot the Democrat Party line ever report it in the first place?
“Fake news”, anyone?
