The New York Times would like everyone to know that if Trump is re-elected in November, it wasn’t because of his accomplishments, the economy, or packed stadiums full of dedicated supporters.
Nope – Putin’s at it again!
In an unbelievable Thursday report, the Times claims that five anonymous sources leaked the details of a Feb. 13 briefing to House Lawmakers by intelligence officials warning that Russia has already been interfering in the 2020 election.
So – the Kremlin wants the president who, according to political analyst Ian Bremmer, has been tough on Russia – instead of, say, Bernie Sanders – the Democratic socialist who honeymooned in Moscow and would likely crash the US economy, thus weakening it, with his draconian socialist policies.
The Times report gets better; the House briefing reportedly angered President Trump so much that he berated outgoing director of national intelligence, Joseph Maguire, and that he was particularly irritated that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was included in the session. The report implies that Maguire was replaced with pro-Trump ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, as a result of the incident.
During the briefing to the House Intelligence Committee, Mr. Trump’s allies challenged the conclusions, arguing that Mr. Trump has been tough on Russia and strengthened European security. Some intelligence officials viewed the briefing as a tactical error, saying that had the official who delivered the conclusion spoken less pointedly or left it out, they would have avoided angering the Republicans.
That intelligence official, Shelby Pierson, is an aide to Mr. Maguire who has a reputation of delivering intelligence in somewhat blunt terms. The president announced on Wednesday that he was replacing Mr. Maguire with Richard Grenell, the ambassador to Germany and long an aggressively vocal Trump supporter. –New York Times
Moments after the Times report was published, CNN immediately picked it up for their dozens of viewers.
And of course, the hot-takes:

This story claims that it had five (5!) people criminally leaking alleged content from a classified briefing. And why not, since no one gets prosecuted for these crimes. Still, we have a serious problem with our supposedly professional "intelligence" and "oversight" communities. https://t.co/zuAdwXpU2L

Until heads roll and hoaxers are sent to prison, the seditious Russian collusion hoaxers will never stop. They will lie and leak and fabricate evidence, whatever it takes, to prevent the American people from taking charge of their own government. https://t.co/wijJ07QKOO

Oh, please….let it GO! Do you think the entire Republican Party is that dumb with every Dem looking for a reason to impeach???
Actually, yes, the entire Republican Party is that dumb, considering the comments below. The story is about Trumps’ Intelligence officials warning about the interference! Joseph Maguire was put in place by Trump and fired because Trump didn’t like what he found. All the posts below talk about is how it’s fake because it was put forth by the NYT. Just because the NYT puts a lot of fake news out there does not mean it is all fake. This story was run on every major news source including a Fox channel for god’s sake so to call it fake is akin to putting your head in the sand pretending it’s not true!!
Will somebody tell me EXACTLY WHAT is Russia doing to make people vote for Trump? Interfering and meddling are vague at best. No Russian or anyone else is threatening me or holding a gun to my head.
Look moron we know it was the democrats that leaked this story. We all know it can’t be true we have not even started voting yet. It is the democrats and the media that is trying to change the outcome of the election. They the liberal media and the democrats are on the globalist payroll. George has them all in his pocket, along with a few RINOs. We are Americans we live in America, America leads the way for the world to follow. The democrats want us to follow others so that they can become the ruling class. American will never follow others and socialism will never be better than capitalism. If you don’t like leading the world then go live in one of those great countrys you want to be like. We will pay for your move
Here we go again with the leftist doneys playng the same game of RUSSIA RUSSIA!! We’re tired of listening and reaeding about their dirty and lying tactics.!!! STOP THE PROPAGANDA! MAGA2020!
Russia has been trying to influence elections for YEARS! This is nothing new, however the NYT’s is once again putting out fake news to sway the voters. Grow up demo-nuts, it’s time to move on!
President trump needs to clean the “CESSPOOL” OOPs I meant the “swamp” completely and BOTH HOUSES put in a law that states that anyone found to attempt or do as many have done will be investigated immediately and punished according to crime and level or WE The people can contact representatives in Washington DC and demand it be passed . I live in Louisiana and swamps are not muddy and can see a foot or more underwater
An don’t for the people of nation ,but get richer!
Who in the USA would trust the New York Times…..they get their news from Schiff, Pelosi and other democrats and angry Clapper, Brennan, Comey and Justice dept employees who were kicked out of their positions.
Freedom of the press ,this is nation freedom. thank God
NYT yep you bet that’s true, full of BS. Impeach cause we can’t defeat, enough is enough.
This’ Russia Thing’ doesn’t work anymore. The Liberal Newspapers are going to have to find another scheme to sell newspapers and push their agenda.
If I had a nickel for every lie that the times wrote I’d have enough to buy the damn newspaper building and all. But then, who would want to associate themselves with a rag like that.
Well, we’ve now been led by the hoop in our nose, full circle courtesy of the VERMINcRATS and lame-stream media. Started with Russia thus the libs attempting to delegitimize OUR PRESIDENT’s election and now three years later, a myriad of investigations, a kangaroo impeachment, a failed coup d’etat to remove OUR PRESIDENT from office and we’re back to Russia again, with impeachment threats in the offing. When do we get our $200 for passing GO? Tell Shifty and you tell the world.
It would not hurt my feelings if someone decided to walk up to Shitt and punch his lights out. nope.
5 classified leakers = 5 prison terms period. Make it happen. We the people are tired of all this. And if something isn’t done. We the people, the true Patriots, will put a stop to it. God Bless America, God Bless my patriotic brothers and sisters, and God Bless out President.
The NEW YORK TIMES as well as the DEMOCRATS are composed of a bunch of lying assholes. I will never read another New York Times or vote for a dammed Democrat for the rest of my life.
It is one thing to leak secure information. It is even worse to publish it without any confirmation or information on what specifically was the basis of the accusation. What specifically were the Russian’s supposedly doing?
The leakers should be indicted and prosecuted.
The NYT should be sued for defamation. They intentionally publishing information from known biased sources with no independent confirmation or verification. They get around liable by simply blaming everything on the unnamed source.
By the way, what hypocrites we are! The good old USA has interfered in more other country elections than any other country on the planet. That includes the Russian Boris Yeltsin election. Putin hates the Clintons because Bill funneled money to Yeltsin who beat Putin’s candidate. These are proven facts, not biased unsubstantiated assertions or speculation.
How stupid can the Democrats be. Every time they do this, Trump’s rating goes up. You would think they would wise up.
Ahh The NYT and there bombshell from Adam Schiff!! Nice try guys, but keep it up and watch Trump rise and rise and rise , well, you know.
Where is the proof, all I see is more redundant allegations. And I thought the NYT’s and all the other news outlets would do there due diligence and find the proof. Until I see reputable proof I consider this story as fake news!
In spite of everything possible being done to undermine Trump, he is on the way to a second term. He will win in a landslide!
The Democrats are in desperation mode!! Have no doubt………….They will do and say anything to stop him!
I don’t think anyone with common sense could or would dispute that his very life is in danger from these demented Democrats and the “Deep State” trying to cover their backsides!
THE NYT IS SO FULL OF SHIFF ITS UNBELIEVABLE. ONCE AGAIN THEY ARE LYING AND NEED A REALITY CHECK. IMBECILES MORONS AND ASSHOLES ALL OF THEM
The only Russians interfering in the 2020 election are Comrads Sanders and Warren, the rest of the Democrat party and Fake News NYT and their “sources”.
They refuse to believe that we rejected them so they would rather make up a fake stoty to hide their shame! They have failed to serve america they have only served themselves! And how is it that Russia can force millions of people to vote for Trump?! They need to get over it!
People will call the NUT back news, but it and CNN, MSNBC and other like the are nothing more than Democratic Propaganda machines. If the people had anything resembling a trusted news they have played their bias and propaganda for to long no one trusts them anymore.
Cottection. The iPad change NYT versus Nut and back for FAKE news.
I dont think the NYT ever has had a source that wasnt “SECRET” by doing this it gives them time to invent a source gthat could fit if they get caught! This is not what I learned in Journalism class. I guess the old Soviet Schools had a different version!
COMMUNIST ZUCKERBERG AND MUSLIM OWN WASHINGTON POST SHOULD BE BANNED FROM POSTING LIES FABRICATED FROM THEIR HATEFUL SICK BRAINS.
ANOTHER WHISTLEBLOWER WITH NO NAMES, JUST VOICING THEIR VICIOUS COMMENTS DRIVEN BY HATE, JUST LIKE EVIL SCHIFF.
Are they trying for another 4 years of Liars, leakers and liberals with impeachments, trials and millions wasted on fake prosecutors? Please spare the Nation of your propaganda. Where does this information come from. Is it from the old refugees from the revolution and murder of the Czar and his family?.. I know there are a bunch of Russians living in NYC and NY state. We know you all hate Trump and his family –can’t the rest of us who vote for him have just a little peace and quiet? If you do not like the government here in the USA–I am sure there is someplace else where you would be happy.. GO THERE AND LEAVE US ALONE.
