The never-ending Russia-Trump saga continues to dominate the new cycle, even though no one has produced any concrete evidence to support their flimsy claims.
But it’s not just Trump liberals are claiming had “back channels” to the Russians.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, and others, have all been accused of secretly meeting with the Russians for unknown reasons.
But while these incidents have been either fabricated or taken out of context, the clowns in the media are forgetting that Obama himself had his own secret lines of communication with the Kremlin.
As reported at Young Cons, the Obama White House had a “modern-day red phone” to complain to Moscow after Russian operatives tried to infiltrate software and databases used by state election officials.
In October, two of the sources said the White House contacted the Kremlin on the back channel to offer detailed documents of what it claimed was Russia’s role in election meddling and to warn that the attacks risked setting off a broader conflict.
While the red phone wasn’t literally a phone, it was a secure messaging channel for ”urgent messages and documents,” according to Bloomberg.
So Obama used this secret line of communication to talk straight with the Russians after evidence emerged of their hacking, and as he and other officials have pointed out, they were successful in getting their point across.
No one in the media cared about this or described it as some sort of secret collusion.
But in the instance of Trump and his aides, they’re making it out to be some kind of scandal, rather than the non-story it is. Of course, government officials are going to try and open up lines of communication to improve relations.
But it appears that it’s only a crime when a Republican does it.
The Left is bound and determined to undermine US-Russian relations for some insidious reason, so they’ll exaggerate and lie about the nature of the Trump administration’s attempts to improve relations.
We should all support a cooling of relations with the Russians because there’s no reason for the US to spill blood or treasure combatting them.
But Trump faces a difficult road ahead thanks to the un-American Left’s thirst for war.
