Hillary Clinton tried to pick a fight with Donald Trump.
It did not go as planned.
Clinton joined the liberal pile-on after President Trump’s press conference with Vladimir Putin.
Trump refused to fall for the media’s trap and forcefully rejected the idea that Russian “meddling” had anything to do with the outcome of the Presidential election.
Since Trump rejected the Washington groupthink, it led the media and many Democrats to call him a traitor.
And the failed 2016 Presidential candidate gleefully hopped aboard this runaway train of media outrage by tweeting that Trump was a Russian asset under the control of Putin and the GRU.

But Clinton’s attack backfired in a big way.
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul appeared on Fox News Channel’s America’s Newsroom and blasted Clinton as the candidate who really colluded with the Russians.
Paul cited Clinton campaign money being used to hire a foreign spy who colluded with Russian intelligence officials to put together the controversial Trump-Russia dossier.
“The president sees the Mueller investigation. He sees all these accusations from partisan Democrats, Hillary Clinton, saying ‘Oh, he colluded with the Russians,” The Kentucky Senator explained. “The only people who we actually know colluded with the Russians were Hillary Clinton who paid a British agent who paid Russians for information for the dossier.”
The Kentucky conservative also noted that President Trump is correct to assess the Mueller investigation as tainted.
The Inspectors General report – as well as bombshell revelations about spies and FISA warrants – paints a picture of an FBI and intelligence community scheming to frame a then candidate Trump and his campaign for collusion with Russia.
“[Trump] feels like the intelligence community cooked up a political and partisan investigation,” Paul stated, “but also, part of the Mueller investigation is something that should have investigated, and that is: Who hacked into Hillary Clinton’s emails?”
Paul concluded his remarks saying that from day one, the media has deployed the alleged Russian meddling as a partisan club to beat down the legitimacy of Trump’s win.
Journalists conflated the two stories so that meddling equals collusion.
The media’s dishonesty – and barrage of fake news stories that ended up being debunked – has convinced Trump that the questions being posed by journalists are not being made in good faith.
Senator Paul declared, “And so I think he’s the part where is accused of collusion and he responds to that and it taints the entire investigation where as there is part of the Mueller investigation that is legitimate and part of it that is a partisan attack on the president.”
The irony of the situation – as Senator Paul pointed out – is that the Clinton campaign colluded with foreign spies who worked with the Russians to produce a dossier claiming it was really the Trump campaign that colluded with Russia.
Journalists and Democrats may try to sweep that fact under the rug, but they won’t get away with their attack on fundamental and objective truth.
Do you agree with Rand Paul?
