The Russian collusion hoax is one conspiracy theory that will not die.
Democrats continue to breathe life into this falsehood.
And Hillary Clinton crossed the line with this accusation about Donald Trump and Russia.
Trump-hating media activist Maggie Haberman is out with her new anti-Trump book entitled Confidence Man.
Haberman and her publisher timed the book for election season in the hopes that the media coverage will keep Trump at the forefront of the public’s attention and amplify the Democrats’ campaign narrative that the Midterm elections are a referendum on Donald Trump.
Instead, the book inadvertently revealed the depths of the Clinton campaign’s insanity about the Russian collusion hoax.
Haberman did not intend for this to happen, as the emails WikiLeaks released from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta back in 2016 revealed the campaign viewed Haberman as a friendly reporter they could count on to tee up a story.
In the book, Haberman describes Clinton’s campaign descending into a panic over a rumor spread by California Senator Dianne Feinstein’s husband that Trump and the Russians planned to poison Clinton when the two shook hands before the debate.
“Democrats found themselves almost perpetually disoriented by autumn. During preparations for the third debate, Clinton’s team was disrupted by a warning from the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein, who said he had been told that Russians might try to poison Clinton through a handshake with Trump, to inflict a dramatic health episode during the debate,” Haberman reported.
Clinton aide Ron Klain asked the obvious question and “wondered how Trump would poison Clinton but not himself.”
But the Clinton campaign took the accusation so seriously that Hillary deputized a top aide to see if there was anything to it.
Obviously, it was all nonsense sourced to an academic who indulged in wild fantasy.
“Her Communications Director, Jennifer Palmieri, took the prospect seriously enough to check it out; the warning turned out to be mere speculation from a historian with no knowledge of Russian plans,” Haberman wrote.
But Clinton and Trump did not shake hands before the debate.
This episode crystalizes the Clinton campaign’s madness about buying into lies regarding Donald Trump and Russia that drove the next several years of American politics.
The Clinton campaign paying for the Steele dossier formed the backbone of the Russian collusion hoax, which Democrats, the Fake News Media, and the anti-Trump FBI all seized upon as the basis to stage a coup in hopes of overturning the results of the 2016 election.
