Fake News Alert: The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming? - Nathan McDonald (2/3/2017)

Here we go once again: the Democratic party is doubling down on their "Russia influenced the US elections" narrative and are taking it to the next level. They are grasping at any straw they can in an attempt to justify why they got wiped off the electoral college map in the recent elections.

The next target of choice is Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whom the Democrats, aided by another "leak" from within the "deep state", are claiming misled Congress in his recent testimonies and therefore should be forced to resign from his newly appointed position.

Leading the charge is Nancy Pelosi, the leader of the House of Representatives for the Democratic party, and the very same person who misnamed President Trump as President Bush just a few short weeks ago at a press conference. This is just one of many recent blunders she has had.

This recent controversy has been sparked off by another illegal leak from someone within the intelligence community that claims Sessions spoke with a Russian diplomat last year during the campaign cycle. What is alluded here by the fake MSM and the democratic party is that Sessions was working together with Russian intelligence to influence the elections in favor of Donald Trump.

Of course, the leak itself doesn't even start this, and it is completely fake news. Yet, it is a strategy and a tactic that we have recently seen deployed against Mike Flynn and ultimately proved effective, although not for the reasons that they claim.

The drums are now once again beating loudly for the beheading of another Trump ally and the MSM is right there beside the Democratic party, assisting with the rhythm. You can expect a flood of fake news articles on the subject, filled with half-truths and omissions of facts - the go-to strategy of the MSM when attempting to push their agenda.

Whether or not they will be ultimately successful is yet to be seen, but let's hope not. This is an unhealthy precedent that they are attempting to set and one that could lead to even further instability in an already incredibly unstable time.

Luckily, the American people are seeing through this garbage, as the newly elected President has seen his approval ratings ticking higher on a weekly basis, as people become fatigued with the infighting and partisanship. Meanwhile, the approval rating of the dying, dinosaur MSM continues to experience new historic lows.
