FLASHBACK: Hillary Clinton Invented Russiagate Conspiracy Theory
The public origins of the left’s Russian “collusion” conspiracy theory appear to be an at-the-time innocuous video posted to then-candidate Hillary R. Clinton’s Twitter page in early August of 2016, three months before Donald Trump’s decisive election victory.
“Seriously, what is going on with Trump and Russia?” she captioned a Tweet, adding a video suggesting that then-candidate Trump was working with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

Several key events had already transpired by the time Clinton sent this Tweet, all but proving that the Russiagate conspiracy theory was a Clinton campaign invention.
In Spring of 2016, well before the Clinton Tweet, the Clinton campaign had already retained Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele to dig up dirt on Trump. Specifically, it was Democratic Party campaign lawyer Marc Elias who hired Fusion GPS through is firm, Perkins Coie. Fusion sub-contracted with former spy Michael Steele, who’d done long stints of intelligence work in Russia.
Steele quickly turned around and filed his first incendiary report with his Democrat-funded client on the 20th of June, 2016.
They hired Steele, who has deep ties to Moscow, and he compiled his still-unverified dossier that, among other bogus claims, said that Trump had hired Russian hookers to pee on him years prior.
On the same day as the Clinton Tweet, disgraced former FBI lawyers and lovers Lisa Page and Peter Strzok were scheming about protecting the country from a Trump presidency. Prior to August 2016, they had been monitoring the campaign, but had not outwardly spoken of using their power to defeat Trump.
Page told Strzok that he may be “meant to protect the country from that menace,” (meaning Trump), to which Strzok replied “I can protect our country at many levels.”
Two days later, Strzok reassured the lovely Lisa Page that Trump would never become president.
“We’ll stop it,” he said.
Almost 700 days later, the case set in motion by Clinton, the DNC, and Obama’s cronies in the FBI has finally been settled. Trump did not collude with anyone to win the 2016 election. Nor did he obstruct justice.
It was all a fantastic lie.
