    War on WikiLeaks: Pro-Hillary Media Fabricates Email to Discredit Whistleblower

    The barrage by the establishment media echoing the Clinton campaign’s line that the WikiLeaks dump was a "Russian misinformation campaign" laced with false documents began to take a dark turn when news networks began pushing out a fraudulent document that pre-dates the dump.

    WikiLeaks released a transcript of Hillary Clinton’s speech before Goldman Sachs where she called Bernie Sanders supporters and the poor a “bucket of losers” in what is the news scoop of the century. Right? While the words do seem to echo, likely intentionally, Clinton’s gaffe about a “basket of deplorables” there is a little rule in life – if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

    The problem with this fake document being pumped around, starting with MSNBC national security analysts Malcolm Nance – who was an intelligence officer for 35-years – is that it has nothing to do with the WikiLeaks Podesta Emails document release at all. It was never included in the release and, in fact, it pre-dates the WikiLeaks file dump by several days.

    That did not stop Nance, who with a firm intelligence background should have been able to easily spot the fake with "(chaos)" actually written in the side bar and "((makes air quotes))" written before the “bucket of losers” piece in the completely comical so-called transcript, from referencing the document and saying: "Official Warning: #PodestaEmails are already proving to be riddled with obvious forgeries & #blackpropaganda not even professionally done."

    ​Yes, that is what an actual disinformation campaign looks like with the information passed along to Nance by KA Semanova whose WordPress account shows a notorious image of the Russian President and Donald Trump kissing in what has become the leading symbol of slandering the outsider by the growing ranks of the Russophobic punditry class.

    It didn’t stop there, though. FoxNews personality Megyn Kelly, who has recently been blasted by her colleague Sean Hannity as clearly being in the tank for Hillary Clinton, cited the very questionable transcript on live television attributing it falsely to WikiLeaks before later apologizing on air saying that the document was clearly not a Clinton campaign document but refusing to correct the record on WikiLeaks.

    ​After Megyn Kelly pushed the false narrative and then apologized on air, another more establishment FoxNews personality Howard Kurtz also referenced the "bucket of losers" statement from the grotesquely comical fake transcript that has nothing to do with WikiLeaks whatsoever and claimed it was from the WikiLeaks document release which, again, a five second typing in the whistleblower’s search box would tell you immediately otherwise in what no doubt tees up Clinton to claim it’s all a fraud at the debate.

    One would also have to immediately wonder why WikiLeaks would respond to John Podesta’s tweet that “Don’t have time to figure out which docs are real and which are faked…” with a response Tweet – "@johnpodesta Submit to WikiLeaks another copy of all your emails. We’ll compare the two identical archives for you," unless they were absolutely certain of the veracity of their source.

    ​Several other outlets also supposedly fell for the fake transcript, which is all but impossible based on its truly hilarious content and a five second typing into a search box, as what began as an establishment misinformation campaign against WikiLeaks and to cushion Clinton from the fallout of the leak continues to unfold right before our very eyes. It would all be funny if it weren’t so sad… and blatantly obvious.
