Even if Russia was behind the Wikileaks dump on Hillary, I always figured it was to embarrass her and the US process, not to aid Trump specifically.
So were the Russians in contact with the Trump campaign, as a Russian diplomat claims?
If this is an ongoing disinformation campaign intended to tie the US in knots, its working. And since the Russians have switched sided and are now hand-in-glove with the American Left, this is an alliance with legs.
And is it true? At this point, what difference does it make?
TROLL LEVEL: SCARY:
OK, the Russians have game here. I do love this:
There were no further details given [by the Russian side] on the claimed contacts, including names in the Trump campaign or other specifics.
Asked for clarification about the meetings, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova countered: “Are you paranoid?”
“It seems to me that you’re not far from having your own 1937,” she wrote in an electronic message, in a reference to the height of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin’s purges. “They’ll be putting people in prison as Russian spies.”
Scaring people who want to be scared will be a layup drill for them.
