Hillary Clinton has accused Representative Tulsi Gabbard of being recruited to be a Russia asset in the 2020 election. Members of the mass media have justifiably come out and dismantled her opinion, and even called it “bizarre” and a “conspiracy theory.“
It may seem like they finally are doing their job, but the irony is that they have been selling a more bizarre conspiracy theory for the last two years. The media themselves have accused President Trump of being a Russian asset. They wrote and produced stories without having evidence, citing anonymous sources and witnesses to tell the American people that they had elected a man to be President who was taking direct orders from Moscow.

In Gregg’s new book, Witch Hunt: The Story of the Greatest Mass Delusion in American Political History, he shows how the media, both knowingly and inadvertently, were used by deep state actors in an effort to claim that Donald Trump is a Russian asset. James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, and Andrew McCabe all used their media contacts to sell the script that became the witch hunt.
Hillary Clinton has come out and used the script that the media have been selling to the American people for two years; they seem angry that she is copying them without giving them proper credit.
