Millions of Americans were outraged about what happened during the 2020 election.
Now the chickens have come home to roost for the left.
Joe Biden was asked to admit one thing about 2020 to Trump that will crush Democrats.
The Biden administration announced a number of sanctions against Russians for the Solarwinds hack and other alleged election meddling.
But the eye-catching part of the announcement was the U.S. intelligence community admitting that the story from last summer that the Russians paid bounties to the Taliban to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan was a hoax.
“Thursday’s sanctions will not be tied to allegations that Russia paid Afghan militants to attack U.S. troops. A senior administration official said U.S. intelligence had only ‘low to moderate confidence’ that Russia had made such payments because of the ‘challenging operating environment’ in Afghanistan,” Axios reported.
Seditious actors within the intelligence community leaked this story to The New York Times in the summer of 2020 to damage Donald Trump in the election and to cripple Trump’s plans to withdraw American troops from Afghanistan by fueling the deranged conspiracy theory that Donald Trump was a secret Russian asset.
Donald Trump dismissed the story as fake news and military commanders in Afghanistan said there was no evidence to substantiate the claim.
But that didn’t stop the corporate media and Joe Biden from attacking Donald Trump as a traitor leaving Americans vulnerable to death by assassinations carried out by paid mercenaries.
“His entire presidency has been a gift to Putin, but this is beyond the pale,” Biden falsely claimed back in 2020. “It’s betrayal of the most sacred duty we bear as a nation to protect and equip our troops when we send them into harm’s way. It’s a betrayal of every single American family with a loved one serving in Afghanistan or anywhere overseas.”
Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris echoed this lie.
“[There was] public reporting that Russia had bounties on the heads of American soldiers,” Harris declared. “And you know what a bounty is? Somebody puts a price on your head and they will pay it if you are killed. And Donald Trump had talked at least 6 times to Vladimir Putin and never brought up the subject. Joe Biden would never do that.”
When the story was exposed as a lie—exactly what Donald Trump said it was—reporters asked White House press secretary Jen Psaki if Joe Biden owed Donald Trump an apology for smearing a compromised commander-in-chief allowing the troops under his command to be killed for profit.
Psaki refused to acknowledge Biden’s lie that was based on a fake news hoax.
“I’m not going to speak to the previous administration,” Psaki stated.
For four years, treasonous leakers in the intelligence community fed lies and hoaxes to willing reporters that published the falsehoods without asking any questions because the leaks fit the political narrative they wanted to promote.
And just like the Russian collusion hoax, the Russian bounty story was a lie.
