Newly declassified documents have been released that show the New York Times February 2017 article on “Russian collusion” was completely fake.
FBI agent Peter Strzok used the article from the New York Times to build the case against the Trump campaign while working in his capacity as an investigator for Robert Mueller’s Russian collusion investigation.
However, in using the article Strzok knew it was fake as he noted, “This statement is misleading and inaccurate as written. We have not seen evidence of any individuals affiliated with the Trump campaign in contact with IOs [intelligence officials.]”
Further footnotes showed that nearly every factual allegation that the New York Times made was false.
Many of President Trump’s opponents cited the article as proof that he and his campaign had colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election. They literally relied on “fake news” to push the Russian collusion hoax all along.
With these documents out in the open now, The New York Times has earned the title of “fake news.” Isn’t it time the FBI does its own investigations, rather than relying on newspapers to establish facts?
