Voiceover by Harold Hoover
CNN has returned to life the unsubstantiated document that claims the Russian government has damaging information about President Trump.
On February 10, the network published the article “US investigators corroborate some aspects of the Russia dossier.” CNN argued that officials told them “some of the conversations described in the dossier took place between the same individuals on the same days and from the same locations as detailed in the dossier,” but “officials who spoke to CNN cautioned they still have not reached any judgment on whether the Russian government has any compromising information about the President.”
The original dossier was described by Trump and his administration as ‘fake news’ and indeed the most sensational part of it was likely relied on a joke by 4Chan trolls.
However, it looks that CNN’s editorial staff have not learned the lesson and are going to further speculate on a mighty Kremlin hand behind Trump’s victory in 2016.
