As the Russia Narrative Implodes Hilariously, Apparently the Next Big Scandal Will Be "Trump Said Something About Mika"

Okay that last part is my gloss, but it sure does seem that the Usual Suspects are shopping for a replacement line of attack following the disaster that is the Russia Hoax.

Mollie Hemingway has a great post on how this entire Russian Hoax got started. Hint: It started in Hillary Clinton's war-room, hours after her November 8 2016 loss, per Jonathan Allen's and Anne Parnes' Shattered:

In other calls with advisers and political surrogates in the days after the election, Hillary declined to take responsibility for her own loss. She's not being particularly self-reflective,' said one longtime ally who was on calls with her shortly after the election. Instead, Hillary kept pointing her finger at Comey and Russia. 'She wants to make sure all these narratives get spun the right way,' this person said.

That strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech.

Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn't entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.

In Brooklyn, her team coalesced around the idea that Russian hacking was the major unreported story of the campaign, overshadowed by the contents of stolen e-mails and Hillary’s own private-server imbroglio.

And from their, their Deep State leakers went to work feeding stories to CNN, including that scandalously-unsourced Pee Party Dossier, which, as Mollie notes in a podcast and I have suggested myself before, was only "briefed" about to the president so that it could then be leaked to the press.

In other words, the Pee Party Dossier had been shopped for months to the media, with no takers. No one would publish it -- it was obviously silly.

So they concocted and Official Briefing so that the unpublishable, unverifiable (and where it could be verified -- provably false) dossier would have some kind of nexus to official Washington business and hence could be published.

The briefing was concocted to make unpublishable trash publishable and the Main Media Talking Point for going on seven months.

This is, as a friend with deep experience in covert ops told me, "an op" from start to finish.

Do check out Mollie Hemingway and David Harsyani talking about this here, as well as today's Twitter Outrage.
