A new investigation published by Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald confirmed that Donald Trump is directly being fed and is repeating Putin lies and propaganda at his rallies under the disguise of making America great again.
According to the magazine, Eichenwald uncovered several instances of Trump reading propaganda directly from Putin at a recent campaign rally in Pennsylvania. Most recently, the Russians took a story that Eichenwald wrote and turned into a “John Podesta email” that hours later Trump read on stage at his rally.
In his report, Eichenwald wrote that Putin is directly feeding lies to Trump:
“The Russians engage in a sloppy disinformation effort and, before the day is out, the Republican nominee for president is standing on a stage reciting the manufactured story as truth. How did this happen? Who in the Trump campaign was feeding him falsehoods straight from the Kremlin?
The Russians have been obtaining American emails and now are presenting complete misrepresentations of them—falsifying them—in hopes of setting off a cascade of events that might change the outcome of the presidential election. The big question, of course, is why are the Russians working so hard to damage Clinton and, in the process, aid Donald Trump? That is a topic for another time.”
This should not come as a surprise. Back in July, Trump openly called on Russia to hack Hillary Clinton’s email server on live TV.
“I will tell you this, Russia: If you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” the Republican nominee said at a news conference in Florida. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”
Trump’s comments set off an immediate uproar from the intel community, which blasted the remarks as a threat to national security.
Every American should be troubled by this development. Putin has moved beyond dabbling in the election by hacking the DNC to using Donald Trump puppet to inject Russian propaganda into US media.
Beyond being a misogynist who brags about sexual assault, Donald Trump is now a threat to national security.
