Democratic Senator admits Russia did not favor one party over the other in the 2016 election

August 1, 2018

  There is an old saying in politics which goes something like this, a gaffe is when a politician actually speaks the truth. And today it looks like Democratic Senator Mark Warner of Virginia made a gaffe on the biggest issue to encompass the political realm this year. I am of course talking about Russia colluding with Donald Trump to help him defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

  This investigation has dragged on for two years and still there is no evidence of any type of collusion and today Mark Warren let the cat out of the bag by admitting that Russia did not care which party won the election because the goal was simply to cause disruption and division in the country. Here is more:

During a discussion of social media platforms, Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) said Wednesday that the goal of Russian hackers wasn’t to favor one political party over the other during the 2016 presidential election, but to reap havoc.

“This is one where there’s no Democratic or Republican answer. Since, clearly, the goal of our adversaries was not to favor one party over the other, it was to wreak havoc and split divisions,” Warner said, about Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

  Of course most of us have known this for a long time because we followed the story about how both the Democratic and the Republican National Committees were warned they were targets of Russian hacking but only the Republican National Committee took the threat seriously and implemented the suggested actions, while the Democratic National Committee did not take the threat seriously–probably because they were too busy rigging the primary for Hillary Clinton. But I believe this is the first time since the Democrats began the Russian/Trump collusion narrative that a Democrat has admitted this was the case.

  Mark Warner is going to be in a little trouble with the Democratic leadership for telling the truth but at least the Democrats know the mainstream media will not find this story suitable for coverage so it will be as if it never happened. But what is most ironic about this whole issue is that Russia’s attempt to cause division in the nation over the results of the election worked and we have the Democrats and their voters to thank for that because they fell right into the trap.

    Just like we have been talking about the deep state to our detriment, namely in the form of tin foil. Interesting after all these years it has come to be accepted. Perhaps a slip, but perhaps the chorus will swell over this whole nonsense… question: Is he up for re-election? I didn’t think so,, Just wondered if he wanted to be thought of as sane.

      I didn’t even think of his reelection status, he could afford to be sane this time around because he is not up for reelection. 🙂

    The left can always chalk it up to jabberwocky while the right as always will pass up an opportunity to make their case.
