BIG story for some journo here. Reading btw lines: BS staffer, frustrated BS wouldn't address the problem, went to HRC camp himself. And staffer prev said "flood" began in March 2016, not at "the end" of his camp. What did BS know, when did he know it, what did he do/not do? 🧐
BS downplayed Mueller’s indictment as “old news” and pre-empted what he knows will come out. Taking credit for a staffer *bypassing him* and going directly to HRC camp. Absolving himself of his own responsibility to warn his supporters they were being targeted.
BS doesn’t get enough credit for being a master at using words that technically say one thing but that he knows people will attach a different meaning to. Carefully parsed “end of camp when appeared HRC was going to win”=March (so not a lie) but knowing most will hear it as June.
He's implying Russia didn't help him in the primary. They did.
He's implying his campaign took action when they discovered Russian interference. They didn't.
He's implying Russian propaganda had the same affect on Black and Muslim voters as it did on *his* supporters. It didn't.
He's implying there's no news in Mueller's indictment. There is.
His supporters love to claim he's authentic, a straight talker. He isn't.
His answers on MTP, from Russia to lying about his record on gun control, were rehearsed, practiced, parsed, and tweaked beforehand. #Fraud
Coming back to add this 07/2017 piece. Read abt BS staffer Mattes (starts 8th paragraph). Then understand how crafty BS was on MTP to cover his ass knowing this was out there. Even his adding the news that Mattes went to HRC camp was cover for HIS inaction

Bugged me for months no journo followed up on the obvious Qs raised by this article. Why didn't BS warn his supporters when he found out they were being targeted by a foreign state? Why didn't he notify the FBI? He needs to be grilled.
