    Default It Begins: Journalists start admitting Trump-Russia conspiracy was a fabricated lie

    Yahoo News’ Michael Isikoff (formerly of Newsweek and NBC News) has reversed course and started acknowledging that the left's projection of its own disloyalty and collusion with foreign powers against this country's interests, on vivid display in the Trump-Russia hoax, has been exhaustively investigated, that there is zero evidence of anyone but Democrats colluding with Russia or rigging elections, and that all the key pillars of this astonishingly dishonest scam are "likely false." He won't be the last to be forced to admit that Democrats invented the entire thing, just like they did with Roy Moore.

    Dossier fails the test of time; Trump-Russia collusion claims now called 'likely false'

    Mr. Isikoff this month told Mediaite columnist John Ziegler: “When you actually get into the details of the Steele dossier, the specific allegations, we have not seen the evidence to support them, and in fact, there is good grounds to think that some of the more sensational allegations will never be proven and are likely false.”

    Mr. Isikoff is best friends with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, who hired Mr. Steele in May and June 2016 with money funneled through a law firm from the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Mr. Isikoff was one of a handful of mainstream journalists who met with Mr. Steele in Washington as arranged by Mr. Simpson.

    Mother Jones magazine’s David Corn wrote the second Washington dossier story based on an interview with Mr. Steele, who acknowledged he was desperate to stop the Trump campaign and prompt the FBI to ratchet up its investigation.

    Mr. Isikoff and Mr. Corn would team up on a March 2018 best-selling book, “Russian Roulette.” It told Mr. Steele’s story in a favorable light amid a narrative on Moscow’s direct election interference by hacking Democratic Party computers.

    Woodward isn't on Mueller's team, is he?

    If you read Woodward's book, he concludes that Trump is a liar.

    Hint to Woodward: all politicians are liars lol.

    Why are you desperate to change the topic from the Dossier being worthless?

    As far as I know most of the raw intelligence has been cross verified by European intelligence sources. They were watching Trump for years because they were following Russian money laundering in NY, Hamburg and London.

    Why not wait until its over. I would be very surprised if Trump isn't a criminal since he has always surrounded himself with criminals and otherwise shady characters.

    These poor bastards cannot help themselves, Kudzu.

    The puppet masters pull their strings...and they do what the strings require of them.

    Best to just enjoy it for a while. At some point this year, we will probably find out what the investigation has determined...and listen to listen to them either call it bullshit...or rejoice over it.

    In the meantime...life goes on.

    If they knew Trump was laundering money for years, why didn’t they charge him years ago?

    That tangent aside, here is Isikoff:

    “When you actually get into the details of the Steele dossier, the specific allegations, we have not seen the evidence to support them, and in fact, there is good grounds to think that some of the more sensational allegations will never be proven and are likely false.”

    That makes some significant people liars, right? Isn’t spreading *that kind* of misinformation a kind of lie?

    Maybe slightly more insidious than exaggerating one’s net worth in a political campaign?

    Well, Woodward is an investigative journalist, he's not FBI or CIA and probably isn't highly connected to government intelligence in the UK, Holland or Germany.

    Regardless of what Mullet turns up or doesn’t turn up ‘we’ will continue to call bullshit on the origin of the Russian investigation. And the role the Dossier played in it.

    Or, we can just let it slide and decide ‘this is the way this game will be played’ from now on.

    When the Mueller report comes in...you puppets of the right will cheer if it says what you want it to say...and call it a witch-hunt hatchet job if it doesn't.

    That is the way puppets are designed to work. The puppet does what the puppet master wants it to do...AND NOT ONE GODDAM THING OTHER.

    Good luck, Darth.

    I hope the strings do not require you to do stuff even you will be able to see as daffy.
