NY Times makes up massive story alleging that Trump’s campaign was communicating with Russian Intelligence Officials. Comey: The NY Times article was wrong in the main. The article is still up, no correction/retraction. CBS, MSNBC, NBC, and other repeat the lie.
Feb. 14: One Hell of a Buried Lede
The Claim: “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence.”
The Facts: James Comey testified that in the main it was wrong.
The Times reported Trump’s people communicated with Russian intelligence officials at around the same time hackers were publishing personal email stolen from of Democratic National Committee staffers and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta. The problem with this is that the NY Times filled it with anonymous inaccurate sources and false facts.
How do we know this? Well, watch this video and see Comey testify before Congress that this article was not factually accurate in the main.
