Ex-Campaign Manager for Hillary’s failed 2016 bid reveals she personally signed off on spreading Russia myths

In the course of Special Counsel Durham’s prosecution of Michael Sussmann, a great deal of information has come to light about the origins of the “Russiagate” disinformation.

Recently, we learned that the campaign had pushed a journalist into disseminating the false Russian server allegations. Now, however, we learn that Hillary Clinton had personally approved of this plan.

Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager Robby Mook testified in court as part of the Sussmann trial that Hillary Clinton was not only aware of the plot to push a journalist into publishing unverified (read: false) allegations of a secret server between Donald Trump and a Russian bank, Alfa–but she actively signed off on it, knowing that the allegations were unverified.

Jake Sullivan, now the White House National Security Advisor, was also briefed on the plot, although the level of his involvement is less clear.

On October 31st, after the story by the journalist broke, Hillary then spread further disinformation with a Tweet

She was not becoming aware of this disinformation for the first time, Mook confirms. She signed off on it in a plot to discredit then-Presidential candidate Donald Trump because she knew she would lose the election.

The plot, as it played out, consisted of a research firm hired by the Clinton campaign producing false information, such as the Alfa Server link and the Steele Dossier at large, then having the non-existent server link be presented to a journalist as if it was verified, and then for the press to do the rest.

Mook admits that the campaign wasn’t “totally confident in the legitimacy of the data,” which in other words means they had no evidence that it was legitimate at all. Because it wasn’t.

That Hillary Clinton was personally involved in this is damning.
