Fusion Nat Bertrand Writes in Politico That a Previous Article -- Published in Politico Itself! -- is a "Conspiracy Theory" with "No Evidence"

On January 11, 2017 -- one day before the Clapper/Tapper ring would execute the plan to give the fake dossier a "news hook" -- Ken Vogel and David Stern reported for Politico that Ukranian officials had interfered with the US elections -- on Hillary Clinton's side.

Donald Trump wasn’t the only presidential candidate whose campaign was boosted by officials of a former Soviet bloc country.

Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found.

A Ukrainian-American operative who was consulting for the Democratic National Committee met with top officials in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington in an effort to expose ties between Trump, top campaign aide Paul Manafort and Russia, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation.

The Ukrainian efforts had an impact in the race, helping to force Manafort's resignation and advancing the narrative that Trump’s campaign was deeply connected to Ukraine’s foe to the east, Russia. But they were far less concerted or centrally directed than Russia’s alleged hacking and dissemination of Democratic emails.

The Ukranian officials colluded with a DNC official named Alexandria Chalupa.

Because the fake dossier was given a "news hook" and reported on by Jake Tapper -- as had been arranged -- the next day, and also, of course, because the media was trying to prove foreign collusion on Trump's behalf and not Hillary's, this story didn't get much attention.

Right-leaning channels keep pointing it out -- and the leftwing media and NeverTrump corporate-funded GOPe clique just keeps ignoring it.

But it's never been disproved or even "credibly alleged" to be in any way false. Certainly Politico has never retracted it.

But the story is inconvenient for the leftwing media/Democratic effort to execute a coup against the duly-elected President, so it has to be Disappeared.

Enter Natasha Bertrand -- or "Fusion Nat" as I like to call her.

She now pens an article, also for Politico, essentially claiming that the earlier Politico article was Fake News and should presumably be retracted. In an article co-written with Andrew Desiderato, she now claims that Politico published, and I do quote, "a conspiracy theory" with "no evidence" to "support" it:

Two top officials who served on President Donald Trump’s National Security Council staff [Fiona Hill and Vindman] testified that they had seen no evidence that the Ukraine government interfered in the 2016 election, contradicting a claim the president has made in public and private.


The testimony undercuts a conspiracy theory that has been pushed by Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, as he sought to upend the intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia sought to help Trump defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016.

According to Giuliani, Ukrainian officials conspired with the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to help boost the Democratic nominee's campaign and damage Trump’s candidacy. No evidence has emerged to support that idea.

No evidence except for a well-sourced article published by Politico itself, quoting Ukranian officials.

I mean, other than that -- sure, "no evidence" for this "conspiracy theory."

BuzzFeed decided to join the MinTruth in destroying all record of this wrongthink article and now writes the Politico news article itself out of existence, claiming that this "conspiracy theory" merely comes from a "viral article on FaceBook," rather than a news organization which obviously leans very far to the left.

Media delenda sunt.

Julie Kelly is all over Fusion Nat, who's trying to protect Andrea Chalupa more than ABC was protecting Jeffrey Epstein:
