Winston Churchill famously said that “history is written by the victors.” Somehow the media missed out on that tidbit because the losing party of last falls election has completely hijacked the narrative and is making a mockery of President Trump’s win.
The DNC is so devastated that they didn’t get what they wanted, that they’ve spent almost every single minute since November 8th blaming any villain they can get their hands on for the Trump win. Most notably, of course, is the Russian interference story. That cloud has hung over the administration in an attempt to invalidate every single move they make.
President Trump has admitted that there might have been another country trying to tamper with the election, but experts say that it might not have all been in President Trump’s favor.

The White House went on offense Wednesday amid the firestorm over Donald Trump Jr.’s campaign-season meeting with a Russian lawyer, trying to turn the tables by alleging the Democratic National Committee and the Clintons are the ones caught up in “collusion.”
The White House has been grappling all week with revelations of a meeting the president’s eldest son held last year with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya, who was said to have dirt on Hillary Clinton as part of a Russian government effort to help the Trump campaign.
But Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders used Wednesday’s off-camera briefing to highlight DNC and Clinton ties to foreign governments including Russia and Ukraine.
In politics we talk about party loyalty, duty to constituents and sometimes even religious influences to make sense of why politicians do what they do. But you’d have to be brand spanking new to politics (and maybe just adulthood) if you don’t know that when you want to find out who is behind something, all you’ve gotta do is follow the money, honey.
If the money says that the Russians had a vested interest in Hillary, then that’s your answer. There is, of course, the possibility that since there is more than one Russian in the world there might have been more than one allegiance.
However, if we’re stacking the odds in one camp’s favor, it doesn’t look good for the one whose campaign manager is using the Russians to become even more wealthy and who’s brother actually represents a Russian bank’s interest here in the United States.
And as if that’s not enough to nail the Democratic coffin, Breitbart reported on some formerly overlooked emails that were released by Wikileaks, which make even more disturbing connections between the Hillary campaign and the Russians.
The email in question was purportedly sent by Jesse Lehrich, a Clinton campaign foreign policy spokesman and [a] member of the campaign’s rapid response communications team.
In the correspondence, which has not yet received news media attention and remains searchable in the WikiLeaks archive, Lehrich writes that the campaign “killed a Bloomberg story” attempting to link Clinton’s opposition to the anti-Russia legislation known as the Magnitsky Act to a speech that Bill Clinton delivered in Moscow for $500,000.
The May 21, 2015 message, titled, “May 21st Nightly Press Traffic Summary,” was purportedly sent by Lehrich to the campaign’s “HRCRapid” Google group, and was captured by the leaking of campaign chairman John Podesta’s Gmail account emails.
Lehrich’s list of press actions carried out by the campaign included this:
With the help of the research team, we killed a Bloomberg story trying to link HRC’s opposition to the Magnitsky bill to a $500,000 speech that WJC gave in Moscow.
Based on Peter Schweizer’s bestselling book Clinton Cash, the New York Times in April 2015 reported on Clinton’s $500,000 speech in Moscow and its possible ties to a deal in which the Russians gradually assumed control of the Uranium One mining company.
The newspaper reported “the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States.”
The newspaper further reported:
Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.
The more we look the more we see that there is indeed a Russia connection to the 2016 election, but maybe not in the way the media would have you believe.
