(Natural News) Anyone who still doubts that the American corporate media is not part of the anti-democratic deep state should take heed: More evidence has emerged indicating they were heavily involved in helping to establish and then perpetuate the blatant lie that Donald Trump was a stooge of Vladimir Putin when he successfully ran for president in 2016.

According to a report by Blacklisted News, Franklin Foer, a writer for The Atlantic who, at the time, worked for Slate, sent a draft copy of a propaganda piece to Fusion GPS for editing, according to leaked emails contained in a court filing by special counsel John Durham.

Fusion GPS, you may recall, was the opposition research firm that commissioned the fake “Russia dossier” written by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. Fusion commissioned the dossier using money funneled to the firm by the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign, meaning that in reality, she was the presidential candidate that year who was really ‘colluding’ with Russia.

The Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway highlighted Foer’s treachery on Twitter, as did other users:

Last week, the Washington Times noted:

Special counsel John Durham has revealed that employees of the research firm Fusion GPS sent journalists hundreds of emails with unverified accusations against President Trump to trigger negative news stories.

Mr. Durham was responding to efforts of people with ties to Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign to keep potentially explosive evidence out of his hands during the upcoming trial of a Clinton campaign lawyer accused of lying to the FBI.

In a court motion filed late Monday, Mr. Durham said the slew of emails undercuts the assertion of Clinton campaign officials that Fusion GPS’s research for them should be protected under attorney-client privilege.

The story-peddling by Fusion GPS led to a number of negative stories on Trump including:

— A Wall Street Journal article about a Trump adviser meeting with a former KGB official close to Russian President Vladimir Putin

— A Washington Post story about a Trump campaign adviser investing in Russia

— New York Times and Reuters articles about the FBI investigating a secret setup between Trump and Russia’s Alfa Bank.

There was no ‘secret’ link between Trump Tower and the former president’s campaign and the Kremlin-aligned Alfa Bank; that was pure fiction. There was also no Trump adviser meeting with the KGB nor anything to the story that a Trump adviser had been or was investing in Russia (and even if there were, the investment was not considered illegal or improper — unlike the Biden Crime Family taking money from the Moscow mayor’s wife or a ChiCom government-controlled bank).


“We’ve known for quite some time what happened here. And what the Durham indictments are just proving is how not only complicit but the Clinton campaign did this. They literally did this,” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), who has been investigating the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax along with Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) for years, told the Times.

“What the Clinton campaign did in terms of political dirty tricks, we are still putting up with the repercussions. Would Vladimir Putin have invaded Ukraine if Trump was still in office? That’s an interesting question,” he added.
