Longtime Democratic pundit James Carville chalked up Bernie Sanders’ resounding Nevada caucus victory to Russian interference on Saturday, claiming that Vladimir Putin was the ‘big winner’ of the caucus.

Carville is known for something of a running feud with Sanders. The Vermont socialist called the Democratic political consultant a “hack” earlier this month after Carville claimed he would be hopeless in a general election against Donald Trump.
It’s probably not too surprising that a figure closely linked to Bill and Hillary Clinton(Carville consulted Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 political campaign) isn’t a fan of Sanders. But his claim that Vladimir Putin is celebrating as Sanders stakes out a clear path to the Democratic nomination is nothing more than a cynical ploy.
Elements of the so-called intelligence community have made unsubstantiated claims that Russia is waging internet influence operations to boost the campaign of Sanders. The Democratic frontrunner pushed back against the Deep State-linked reports, which surfaced a day before the Nevada caucus.
Years after Robert Mueller’s seemingly endless probe into alleged grand Russian conspiracies to interfere in Americans failed to result in any major indictments or arrests, cable media entities remain wholly addicted to narratives alleging widespread social media influence campaigns waged by the Russian government.
Democrats are pulling of page out of a book they’ve used before in leveling Russian interference accusations against Sanders, and it increasingly appears as if the same set of vague and unsourced accusations are going to be trotted out against any political populist who threatens the interests of established interests within the Republican and Democratic parties.
HOAX: Police Report Alleges Texas A&M Student Faked Racist Letters on Car Dashboard
The suspected hoaxster stopped cooperating with police after being confronted with video evidence.
Texas A&M University police are describing an incident in which a black student claimed racist and anti-Black Lives Matter messages were left on his car windshield as a hate hoax, after investigating Isaih Martin’s claims that he was targeted with the messages.
Martin had claimed that three pieces of paper stating “All Lives Matter,” “You Don’t Belong Here,” and a racial slur were placed on his car windshield when his vehicle was placed in the parking lot of an on-campus apartments. His claims elicited an outpouring of sympathy from the university community, with Texas A&M’s official Twitter even consoling the supposed victim without waiting for any verification of his dubious claims.
However, shortly after police began investigating the incident, Martin’s claim began to unravel. The Texas A&M University police obtained footage from a pool camera revealing that while a few individuals walked within several yards of his car, none of them stopped at the vehicle long enough to place the three piece of paper under the windshield wipers. Instead, Martin was the only individual who interacted with the vehicle long enough to place the notes.
“Martin immediately walks to the passenger side of his vehicle, but does not open any doors. Martin is seen toward the front of his vehicle. A brief white speck is seen from about mid-torso of Martin moving toward his vehicle. Another white speck is seen near his chest area. Martin is then seen stepping back and onto the sidewalk in front of his vehicle, most likely taking photos and videos. He then approaches his vehicle again on the passenger side and remains there for a few moments. He is then seen walking around the front of his vehicle. Martin then enters the driver`s door and drives away a few moments later. The total time spent at his vehicle is 1 minute, 15 seconds.”
An investigating officer accused Martin of placing the notes on his windshield himself, confronting him with video evidence revealing that he was the only person close enough to his vehicle to place them there. Martin stopped cooperating with police on the investigation shortly after an officer confronted him on the video footage. The university senior won’t be charged because he didn’t file a formal police report on the matter.
Martin made his Twitter account private in the hours after the police report became public knowledge.
