My synopsis:

The opporesearch on Trump was intentionally leaked by the DNC, conflated with the Podesta leak and blamed on Russia.

This fabricated narrative was used to discredit Flynn for speaking out against Obama policies and obtain fraudulent #FISA warrant to spy on Trump.

Statements in a CrowdStrike report, dated Dec. 22, 2016 and used to buttress claims of Russian hacking, were revised and retracted. The report was reposted on March 23, 2017. [15]

The entire Trump Russia narrative looked like bullshit to me from the beginning.

The media began framing a Trump collusion narrative BEFORE the alleged “hacking” occurred and immediately after General Flynn, an outspoken critic of Obama policies, began advising Trump.

The Guccifer 2.0 moniker and the DNC opposition research “leak” coincide suspiciously with payments to Perkins Coie and FusionGPS. I think there is ample evidence to question whether this leak was intentional.

The DNC/DCCC leak and the Podesta emails leak are two separate “incidents” that have been conflated into one by the DNC and Crowdstrike.

Here are the *reported* dates of the “hacking”:

⏳➡️March 10, 2016—

Reported date of Attack on DNC servers according to AP. The data allegedly exfiltrated was opposition research on Trump. [16]

⏳➡️March 16, 2016—

Reported date of attack on John Podesta.

The data exfiltrated includes thousands of emails.

I think these were two separate incidents: An intentional leak and an unintentional leak. Dates likely inaccurate. DNC has refused to provide further evidence.

And let’s not forget about how our Corrupt FBI allegedly offered a Russian cash and citizenship to admit to the DNC “hack”. [17]
