All the panic on the left about Russia is a ruse. The same media which was freaking out about ‘fake news’ last week is now engaging in just that. They’re promoting the idea that Russia influenced the election to create doubt about Trump’s victory and de-legitimize him. It’s a completely dishonest political move.
Newt Gingrich talked about it last night on the Hannity show:
Gingrich: Furor over CIA report on Russian election meddling ‘stupid’
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Monday that calls for an investigation of claims Russian government actors intervened in the U.S. election were “as stupid as anything I’ve seen the left try.”
“Think about it. Barack Obama’s now saying that his administration was so incompetent that they stood around sucking their thumb while the Russians snuck in and hacked into an American election because of the utter incompetence of the Obama defense system,” Gingrich told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on ‘Hannity’. “Now, I don’t know why one would want to go make that case.”
Gingrich went onto say that he did not believe the claims of Russian hacking had any effect on the outcome of the election.
“I don’t believe that the Russians carried Pennsylvania. I think Donald Trump did,” the former Speaker said. “I don’t think that the Russians carried Wisconsin.”

If the last few weeks are any guide, this will all be forgotten next week and a new fake controversy will become the focus. They’re just throwing stuff against the wall to see if something sticks.
