Hillary Approved Russia Collusion Hoax, Former Campaign Manager Testifies

Hillary Approved Russia Collusion Hoax, Former Campaign Manager Testifies

Robbie Mook testifies on decision to disseminate (false) claims about a supposed secret link between the Trump campaign and Alpha Bank: “I discussed it with Hillary as well…. She agreed to that.”

The Russia Collusion Hoax perpetrated by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign starting in 2016, acting in part through their lawyers to hire Fusion GPS to produce the Steele Dossier, was one of the dirtiest campaign disinformation tricks ever. It was false from the start, yet it was rolled out in such a way as to cast a cloud over the Trump campaign and victory, and to freeze the Trump administration with the Mueller and other investigations.

Hillary herself tweeted out the allegations regarding a secret bank connection between the Trump campaign and Alpha Bank, based on news reports (that were planted by the Clinton operation) :

It was dirty, but how high up did it go? It was unfathomable that it could have been done without Hillary’s knowledge and approval, but until now that was just informed speculation.

Now we know Hillary’s dirty hands were all over it. Her former campaign manager Robby Mook, testifying at the trial of campaign lawyer Michael Sussman, testified that it rolled out with Hillary’s approval as Fox News reports:

Former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook testified Friday that then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton approved the dissemination of materials alleging a covert communications channel between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank to the media, despite campaign officials not being “totally confident” in the legitimacy of the data.

Former FBI General Counsel James Baker testified Thursday that the bureau investigated the data alleging a Trump connection to the Kremlin-linked bank, and found that “there was nothing there.”

Mook was called to the stand for testimony by Michael Sussmann’s defense Friday.

During cross-examination by government prosecutor Andrew DeFillippis Friday, Mook was asked about the campaign’s understanding of the Alfa Bank allegations against Trump and whether they planned to release the data to the media….

He also said he discussed whether to give the information to a reporter with senior campaign officials, including campaign chairman John Podesta, senior policy advisor, now White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, and communications director Jennifer Palmieri.

“I discussed it with Hillary as well,” Mook said.

“I don’t remember the substance of the conversation, but notionally, the discussion was, hey, we have this and we want to share it with a reporter,” Mook said.

The government asked Mook if Clinton approved “the dissemination” of the data to the media.

“She agreed,” Mook testified.

Mook later said he “can’t recall the exact sequence of events,” when asked if he shared the idea to give the Trump-Alfa Bank allegations to the media with Clinton before or after the decision was made.

“All I remember is that she agreed with the decision,” Mook testified.

Politico reports:

Mook said he had no knowledge of Clinton approving Sussmann to go to the FBI with the server information on behalf of the campaign.

“I don’t see why she would,” he said.

Mook confirmed that top campaign officials were aware of the Alfa Bank “secret server” allegations in the summer and fall of 2016, but said they favored handing them off to a reporter.

“Going to the FBI does not seem like a very effective way to get that information out to the public. We do that through the media,” he said.

Mook said that after discussions at the highest levels of the campaign, they decided to do just that. He also said that somewhere around that time he informed Clinton personally and she concurred.

“I discussed it with Hillary as well,” Mook said. “She agreed to that. … She thought we made the right decision.”

If Hillary’s operation addresses this at all, she’ll claim she had no idea that the information about Trump was false.

Meanwhile, Mook better watch out for a sudden case of Arkancide.

I was wondering if LI was going to cover this trial. Seems fairly important

    LI is good, but it seems hesitant to cover a lot of things that are outside the mainstream narrative. Which is okay, because I really value their perspective on those issues.

    The “conspiracy theory” stuff isn’t going to be here.

This has to end HRC 2024 bs.

Well… if Hillary approved, it must have been above board. She is a stickler for doing things by the book.

If Hillary had been caught for doing 10% of what she has gotten away with in her life she would be on death row.

    What’s most creepy is not Hillary Clinton ‘getting away’ with anything: it’s the fact that there are THOUSANDS of people inside our government who are part of the treason and corruption.

    My preduction: the closer Durham gets, the ‘sicker’ Clinton will become.

Did she approve lying to the FBI? That is a crime ( conspiracy).

or, did she approve lying to the media? That is not a crime and this whole thing is going nowhere. As usual.

Mook is tying Clinton to the political dirty trick of taking the lies to the media while separating her from the felony of conspiring to take the lies to the FBI.

Of course she knew what Sussman was doing then and she knows what Mook is doing now.

It does show that they are a bit afraid of Durham if they are willing to take this hit.

This is a bad buried lede unless there’s another testimony implicating Hillary and/or Obama on weaponizing this info for an FBI witch hunt.

Just saying she approved it for going to the press and saying she didn’t know whether it was real is just typical Democrat campaign sludge (and not illegal). I hope this wasn’t meant to seem like a bombshell.

    ‘A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step’.

    In fact this is a big deal. The principle HRC campaign manager declaring in open CT that HRC was briefed about and approved the delivery of this content to media allies in order to shape a narrative that DJT was comprised by Russia.

    Remember that the narrative relies upon the element of FBI investigation/involvement to lend a patina of credibility. Without the FBI then it’s just OPPO research at best and typical campaign dirty tricks and lies at worst.

    The defense managed to get a favorable ruling to exclude a series of HRC Campaign emails regarding some aspects of this plan. With this testimony that might open up an avenue to reconsider whether those emails are now relevant. In any event this is the first time the HRC campaign has admitted that the dossier was in fact a load of BS that they paid for and disseminated to media to influence the election. Previously they have maintained the info was part of an FBI investigation and not something they paid to have cooked up and delivered.

And, remember, it was the Republican led Congress which approved the investigation into the Trump campaign.

This was a coup. The 2020 election sealed it.

They were ALL in on this Coup. Obama too. They all knew, they all covered it up and they all vouched for each other. They ALL belong in prison for treason.

When Hillary finally surrenders will she signal her intent with the cloth she wiped the server with?

Democracy dies with Democrats. Demos-cracy is aborted at The Twilight Fringe. #HateLovesAbortion

Crone Clinton, narcissisti-incompetent, Obama, James Comey, John Brennan, Andrew McCabe, Sussman, and, the whole vile, rotten lot of them, are lawless snakes.

For the people in this country (conservatives) who actually care about corrupt Presidents and presidential contenders colluding to lawlessly sabotage and undermine a candidate and eventual President’s campaign and tenure in office, the last five years have proven to be instructive, in terms of revealing the foul depths and noxious miasma of D.C. Swamp corruption. Law firms, Deep State bureaucrats, dutiful media puppets/lackeys/lemmings, and, of course, powerful Dumb-o-crats are all entwined in this incestuous cesspool of corruption and subversion of our democratic process.

I read thousands of the stolen emails from Hillary’s campaign while at Sparta Report. I can verify that Podesta tried to make Mook a fall guy over leaked information at one point, and that Mook was hired to be a straight arrow to insure the finances of the campaign met with FEC regulations. He never was part of Clinton world. The defense putting Mook on the stand was simply stupid.

Repeat after me, Hillary is…PURE EEEEEEEEVIL.

Hillary didn’t approve it.
She created it.

Can you imagine during the trials of the Watergate Plumbers, had they pointes the finger at Nixon for initiating the burglary?
So when do we get the hearings televised like they did back then on the Big Three networks?

    Hopefully this is the John Dean moment needed for this to get some traction.
    If this trial results in a guilty verdict and the defendant starts getting nervous, it could get the ball rolling in the right direction.

This got more attention in the “mainsteam” media when it fake news. Now it is being exposed and ignored.

one way or another she and her husband are marked meat. As are many more….watch.

Thinking the Democrats wouldn’t care if Hildabeast is tossed under the bus if it saves everyone else.
She is done anyway in politics, only she hasn’t figured that out.
