The idea that Hillary was the motivating force behind the Russia hoax (yes, we know it was a hoax) has been around for a long time. Declassified information was just released that indicates that then President Obama was briefed that Hillary was the source.
The Politico covers the story by spending the first half of the article saying this information was previously rejected so that the reader just knows what follows is wrong.
“Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Tuesday declassified a Russian intelligence assessment that was previously rejected by Democrats and Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee as having no factual basis, according to two sources familiar with the matter.”
That’s just the opening paragraph. It continues on from there in the same way.
Switch over to FOX and you get a different slant on the story (no surprise there).
“The Director of National Intelligence (DNI) declassified information indicating that former President Obama’s administration knew of allegations that former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was attempting to tie Trump to the Russia and distract from her email scandal before the 2016 presidential election.”
That’s the first paragraph of the FOX story.
Fortunately you can read the actual report for yourself. I’ve included it as a PDF below.09-29-20_Letter to Sen. Graham_Declassification of FBI's Crossfire Hurricane Investigations_20-00912_U_SIGNED-FINAL
The thing that jumps out at me most is the use of the word “alleged”. Whenever we see that word we know that the matter isn’t settled. This doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. This doesn’t mean that there isn’t evidence that it happened. What it means is that absolute proof hasn’t been set so that the thing is a certainty.
It is easy to see why these two publications could take two different views of the same information. It comes down to what you believe. For me, based on the preponderance of the evidence I believe Hillary had something to do with the Russia hoax. I think the more information you obtain on this subject the closer you will come to agreeing with me on that.
