Yesterday a gang of reporters at the Washington Post, including Ellen Nakashima, released an article that Rudy Giuliani claims is totally false. This is not the first time Nakashima was behind dirty false hit pieces on conservatives.
Here is the lead paragraph for the Washington Post’s piece written at least in part by Nakashima on Rudy Giuliani:
The FBI warned Rudolph W. Giuliani in late 2019 that he was the target of a Russian influence operation aimed at circulating falsehoods intended to damage President Biden politically ahead of last year’s election, according to people familiar with the matter.
From the start we can see a problem in this piece because it’s referencing “people familiar with the matter” and not giving any kind of indication whether they are senior officials or just a DOJ intern who heard it as a watercooler rumor.
Here’s how the Post lays out their second paragraph:
The warning was part of an extensive effort by the bureau to alert members of Congress and at least one conservative media outlet, One America News, that they faced a risk of being used to further Russia’s attempt to influence the election’s outcome, said several current and former U.S. officials. All spoke on the condition of anonymity because the matter remains highly sensitive.
The problem for Nakashima again is Rudy was on with Steve Bannon yesterday and he claimed he never was approached by the FBI. This completely blows away the WaPo’s bogus piece.
We wrote about Washington Post reporter Nakashima before. She was used to dump a false report about Trump team member Richard Grennell and she was the spark behind the bogus Russia-Collusion lies.
Nakashima was one of the first, if not the first, to claim Russian hacking of the DNC. The good Deep State pundit reported that the firm Crowdstrike had uncovered this information.
Russian government hackers penetrated the computer network of the Democratic National Committee and gained access to the entire database of opposition research on GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to committee officials and security experts who responded to the breach.
