Sussmann Case Shows Far-Left Slate Journalist Was Tool for the Democrats and Hillary in Pushing Garbage Trump-Russia Hit Piece

Franklin Foer is reportedly one of many far-left tools the Democrats and Hillary Clinton used to push their garbage Trump – Russia lies.

In the second 2016 debate, Hillary Clinton claimed President Trump was connected to Russian leader Putin.

This was laughable at the time.  We could tell then that this argument was rubbish based on lies.  However, Hillary, the Democrats and the Deep State push this lie to this day despite it being a lie.

A couple of days ago one of Hillary’s attorneys was indicted for pushing this lie to the FBI.  Michael Sussmann was indicted for pushing the Trump – Russia lie.  But as we all know, there was a cabal of journalists, Democrats and Deep State actors who pushed this lie with Sussmann.  One such actor was a far-left writer from far-left Slate.

FOX News reports:

Journalist Franklin Foer appeared to admit Friday he was the journalist mentioned in a federal grand jury indictment who sent 2,500 words of his story to Fusion GPS the day before it was published.

The research firm hired by the Hillary Clinton campaign to investigate then-candidate Donald Trump wrote him it was “time to hurry” on the story for left-wing outlet Slate linking the Trump Organization and a Russian bank days before the 2016 election, according to the indictment of Democratic lawyer Michael Sussmann.

Sussmann is accused of lying to the FBI by the John Durham probe investigating the origins of the Russia investigation. The indictment accused Sussmann of hiding the fact that he was working for the Clinton campaign while pushing for an investigation into supposed ties between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank.

Foer was pressured by Fusion GPS, referred to as “U.S. Investigative Firm,” to “hurry” on his story about the possible backchannel between Trump and the bank, according to the indictment, referring to him as “Reporter-2.”

From Hillary on down, they all knew what they were doing.  They are just trying to get their stories straight so they don’t get caught.
