New York Times Falsely Accuses Trump, Then Exonerates Him?

Yesterday at the top of the stairs, the New York Times saw a story that wasn’t there. It wasn’t there again today. I wish that story would go away. And that is the way it is on the story with Donald Trump aides talking to Russians. They may have talked to Russians, or they may not have. It may be illegal, or it may not be illegal. It’s the seriousness of the charge, after all. 

As Written Joel B. Pollak for Breitbart: 

The New York Times published a story Tuesday evening claiming anonymous “aides” on President Donald Trump’s campaign had contact with Russian intelligence, citing classified information supplied by “four current and former American officials.”

Oddly, the Times reports that these officials concluded that there was “no evidence” they had seen that the “Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians on the hacking or other efforts to influence the election.” So there would seem to be no story.

However, the anonymous officials were reportedly alarmed by the “amount of contact that was occurring while Mr. Trump was speaking glowingly about the Russian president, Vladimir V. Putin.” The Times does not report who initiated the contact.

The Times misreports at least one key piece of evidence. It claims: “At one point last summer, Mr. Trump said at a campaign event that he hoped Russian intelligence services had stolen Hillary Clinton’s emails and would make them public.”

That is not true: the “campaign event” was a press conference, and Trump’s comment was clearly a joke, as Breitbart News reported at the time — though that did not stop the media …..
