The propaganda machine has been turned up to 11 to sully the reputation, or worse, of Donald J. Trump. Jill Stin’s asinine recounts and the threat of faithless electors are one thing. This is different. The once reputable Washington Post has decided to cash in on their journalistic street cred to peddle bullshit for the CIA – the same CIA who lied to us about WMD’s. This time, the fiction is that “anonymous sources” have claimed that the Russians provided Wikileaks with hacked emails. Furthermore, independent Presidential candidate and former CIA employee Evan McMullin from Utah has been pushing this Russia narrative HARD. To top it off, the establishment is freaking out over FAKE NEWS and RUSSIA with the fast-tracking of the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act – all based on this unfounded narrative over Russia influencing our election.
The left has been hanging their hat on FAKE NEWS the Russian hacker thing as the reason Hillary lost – when in fact if anything it was the content of the emails which blew everyone’s mind and redpilled any and all who cared to examine the evidence. Furthermore, the source of this Russian hack narrative – which has now been parroted by virtually the entire MSM, is as flimsy as a cheap plastic bag.
Per Glenn Greenwald at The Intercept:
These unnamed sources told the Post that “the CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system.” The anonymous officials also claim that “intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails” from both the DNC and John Podesta’s email account. Critically, none of the actual evidence for these claims is disclosed; indeed, the CIA’s “secret assessment” itself remains concealed. (source)
Reactions around the internet have been quick to call out the CIA, WaPo, and McMullin on this bullshit. The propaganda wing of the establishment wasn’t trained to deal with crowdsourced investigative work and the light-speed flow of information (which is why they are trying to censor it). Enjoy your remaining free speech while it lasts!

WaPo report cites second-hand *characterizations* of CIA claims, not even CIA claims themselves. And the characterizations are conflicting.

So the media is now saying Russia "stole" the election by exposing REAL Podesta emails? It was what was IN the emails that was the problem.

Did Russia also hack Hillary's campaign calendar and delete all her stops in rural Wisconsin, Penn., and Michigan?https://t.co/5lUnrvsGpy

Part of the BS narrative, by the way, is that the RNC was hacked – but the Russians wanted Trump to win so they only released the Hillary bombshells. Right.
