U.S. officials informed Democratic 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders that Russia is trying to aid his presidential campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.
When asked by reporters about it, Sen. Bernie Sanders said he was briefed on the news ‘about a month ago.’
“President Trump and lawmakers on Capitol Hill have also been informed about the Russian assistance to the Vermont senator, according to people familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence,” the Washington Post said.
President Trump trolled Mueller and the 13 angry Democrats who investigated ‘Russian collusion’ for two years.
“Are any Democrat operatives, the DNC, or Crooked Hillary Clinton, blaming Russia, Russia, Russia for the Bernie Sanders win in Nevada. If so I suggest calling Bob Mueller & the 13 Angry Democrats to do a new Mueller Report, Democrat Edition. Bob will get to the bottom of it!” Trump said in a tweet on Sunday.
Of course we all now know the senior intel briefer “overstated” the assessment of 2020 Russian interference.
And jokes aside, President Trump makes a great point.
If Russia is ‘interfering in the 2020 election to help Bernie,’ why wasn’t he spied on by the FBI? Also, why was Sanders’ campaign briefed on intel the Kremlin was trying to help his 2020 campaign?
The entire US government was unleashed on Trump’s 2016 campaign on fake, Hillary-funded intel claiming that Donald Trump was colluding with the Russians. Let that sink in.
