We owe a debt of gratitude to Real Clear Investigations reporter Paul Sperry for exposing to the rest of us what the Deep Swamp Media already knew — that the original conspiracy against Donald Trump continues unfettered while all the fake investigations are barking up the wrong tree.
To be clear about it, the Hillary Clinton funded goons behind the Russia hoax are still hard at work trying to destroy President Trump. Sperry’s article is titled “Trump-Russia 2.0: Dossier-tied firm Pitching Journalists Daily on ‘Collusion.'”
GPS Fusion mastermind Glenn Simpson and his British spy-for-hire Christopher Steele are both working for The Democracy Integrity Project, which Sperry reports “pumps out daily ‘research’ briefings to prominent Washington journalists, as well as congressional staffers, to keep the Russia ‘collusion’ narrative alive.”
Funded by George Soros and Trump-hater Rob Reiner, TDIP “is led by Daniel J. Jones, a former FBI investigator, Clinton administration volunteer and top staffer to California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein.”
By all means, read Sperry’s lengthy report for yourself, but here’s what you need to know:
The project’s work has been largely shrouded in mystery. But a months-long examination by RealClearInvestigations, drawn from documents and more than a dozen interviews, found that the organization is running an elaborate media-influence operation that includes driving and shaping daily coverage of the Russia collusion theory, as well as pushing stories about Trump in the national media that attempt to tie the president or his associates to the Kremlin.
The group also feeds information to FBI and congressional investigators, and then tells reporters that authorities are investigating those leads. The tactic adds credibility to TDIP’s pitches, luring big media outlets to bite on stories. It mirrors the strategy federal authorities themselves deployed to secure FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign: citing published news reports of investigative details their informants had leaked to the media to bolster their wiretap requests.
In other words, these political operatives are feeding the Russian collusion hoax that they themselves created, and continuing to plat the national media and the American people for suckers. Meanwhile, Mueller and Schiff and Schumer refuse to look at the real collusion between Clinton, GPS Fusion, the FBI and the Justice Department. Unbelievable!
Jones’ project doesn’t just spin the news. Its more ambitious goal is to make news by essentially continuing the Clinton-funded investigation into alleged Trump/Russia ties that began in 2016, and then sharing findings with news outlets, congressional investigators and federal agents.
Jones has hired Fusion GPS, the same Washington firm co-founded by former journalist-turned-opposition-researcher Simpson that was paid more than $1 million by lawyers for the Hillary Clinton campaign to collect information damaging to Trump during the 2016 election.
Jones is also paying Steele, another anti-Trump partisan, to continue to dig up dirt on the president. Fusion GPS paid the former British intelligence officer $168,000 to produce a series of anonymously sourced memos for Clinton accusing the Trump campaign of hatching an espionage plot with the Kremlin to hack Clinton campaign emails and steal the election. The memos also claimed that the Kremlin held compromising material on Trump, including video of him carousing with prostitutes in Moscow. Three years of multiple federal investigations have failed to verify the accusations, which were nonetheless used by the FBI to obtain a secret court-approved wiretap on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
I’m just scratching the surface of what’s included in Sperry’s report. Please read it for yourself. This is more evidence of the Media Matrix I take to task in my new book. As I asked in my subtitle, “What if everything you know is fake?”
