Fake News Now Claiming Russians Are Hacking French Election, Targeting Macron

And the Russian hacking insanity continues…this time it involves the French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron.

The left is using the same rinse-and-repeat formula they did in the U.S. election to set up for their next round of being sore losers. If Marine Le Pen wins the presidential election in France, the entire globalist establishment risks collapsing under the weight of growing populist, nationalistic sentiments.

We are sitting on the verge of another scandal looming. If Marine Le Pen wins, the entire French left, and the global left as a whole will pull together to continue to push narratives about Russian interference in global elections.

The claims are already coming from the notorious few who happily pushed the Russian hacking narrative in the U.S.: The Hill, the New York Times, the BBC, etc. The list goes on and will continue to go on as this narrative picks up.

Excerpt from the fake news New York Times:

The campaign of the French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron has been targeted by what appear to be the same Russian operatives responsible for hacks of Democratic campaign officials before last year’s American presidential election, a cybersecurity firm warns in a new report.

The report has heightened concerns that Russia may turn its playbook on France in an effort to harm Mr. Macron’s candidacy and bolster that of Mr. Macron’s rival, the National Front leader Marine Le Pen, in the final weeks of the French presidential campaign.

Excerpt from The Hill:

The hackers behind the Democratic National Committee (DNC) email breach appear to have made similar attacks against Emmanuel Macron, a French candidate for president, as well as groups associated with German political parties, according to a new report.

The security firm Trend Micro reports that the hacking groups known as Fancy Bear, APT 28 and Pawn Storm attacked the French and German targets using similar phishing schemes to the one that caught the DNC. U.S. intelligence, as well as the bulk of experts, believe Fancy Bear is a Russian espionage operation.

These folks are in lockstep and it is important to keep an eye on their narrative as it develops and as Le Pen inches closer toward victory in France.
