You have to see this.

It just cracks me up. Wired.com was all over Trump for being a Russian agent

2018

Did Russia Affect the 2016 Election? It’s Now Undeniable

In the indictment, Trump campaign officials are referred to as “unwitting” participants in Russian information warfare. This gives the White House an out—and a chance to finally act against what the Kremlin did. But the evidence presented in the indictment makes it increasingly hard to say Russian efforts to influence the American mind were a failure.

2019. The hysteria grows

Trump Must Be a Russian Agent; the Alternative Is Too Awful

What we haven’t seen in any of these instances (and many others) is the “why.” That’s where we’ll ultimately learn the truth about which scenario we face: an incredibly hapless and easily coopted president—or an active criminal conspirator. Why was Manafort funneling campaign polling data through Konstantin Kilimnik? Why does Mueller believe Kilimnik is tied to Russian intelligence? Why does the US believe the Russian president himself approved the attack?

Well, a month ago Bernie Sanders was briefed that Russia was trying to help his campaign

Wired.com: 2020 Russia? Did someone say Bernie?

Russia Doesn’t Want Bernie Sanders. It Wants Chaos

If there’s one line intelligence officials have stuck to about Russian interference in US elections, it’s that it never stopped. Not after the 2016 election, not after the 2018 midterms, and certainly not now, well into the 2020 primary season. Which is why it should be no great surprise that, as The Washington Post first reported Friday, US officials warned Bernie Sanders that Russia is “attempting to help” his presidential campaign. It also shouldn’t be read as any kind of endorsement.

This is really amusing. Wired.com has it this way- Russian interference meant Trump was a Russian agent, but when it came to Bernie, it was something other than Bernie being a Russian agent, despite the fact that Bernie Sanders’ philosophies are much more aligned with Russia’s than Trump’s ever were.

They actually finally got it right but only because their ox was being gored.

The Russian goal is and always was the same

“The strategic goal of this alleged conspiracy, which continues to this day, is to sow discord in the U.S. political system and to undermine faith in our democratic institutions,” said U.S. Attorney Zachary Terwilliger.

Russia does want chaos. That includes duping the feeble minded into believing the idiocy that Donald Trump is a Russian agent.

Russia was very successful at that.

Those who still believe it have their brains wired wrong.
