Hillary Clinton has long fancied herself some sort of political mastermind, despite her repeated failed attempts at winning the White House.
But those losses don’t speak to her undeniably conniving personality that cooked up a bizarre conspiracy theory about Donald Trump somehow being a Russian asset back in 2016.
And, to make matters worse, it was revealed this week in a court filing by the Durham probe that Clinton’s associates were attempting to digitally infiltrate the network at Trump Tower during that period, presumably in an attempt to dig up alleged dirt on her political competition.
This week, Clinton attempted to slyly laugh off the bombshell.
The former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee tweeted Wednesday, in her first public statement reacting to Durham’s Feb. 11 federal court filing, which Fox News first reported Saturday.
Durham’s filing alleged a “Tech Executive-1,” now identified as Rodney Joffe, and his associates, including a lawyer for her presidential campaign, Michael Sussmann, “exploited” internet traffic pertaining to a “particular healthcare provider,” Trump Tower, Trump’s Central Park West apartment building, and the Executive Office of the President of the United States in order to “establish ‘an inference’ and ‘narrative’” to then bring to federal government agencies tying Trump to Russia.
“Trump & Fox are desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones,” Clinton tweeted Wednesday. So it’s a day that ends in Y.”
Then came some serious projection.
“The more his misdeeds are exposed, the more they lie,” Clinton tweeted, linking out to a piece published in Vanity Fair “for those interested in reality,” which she says is a “good debunking of their latest nonsense.”
Clinton’s denial has largely been brushed off as a transparent attempt to deflect this very serious allegation, and the mainstream media’s unwillingness to report on this revelation has proven to be evidence that something heavy is afoot.
