MSNBC “national security analyst” Malcolm Nance suggested the conspiracy theory Friday that the Department of Justice’s criminal investigation into the origins of the agency’s Trump-Russia probe could be “the ultimate distraction to help steal an election.”
“WARNING: I heard a DC rumor fm a close Trump source in May 2017 he wanted to charge [Barack] Obama, [Joe] Biden, [John] Brennen [sic] & [Hillary] Clinton w/treason over Russia. Now with [William] Barr as AG this may be crazy but viable. It could incite civil unrest…the ultimate distraction to help steal an election,” Nance wrote on Twitter.
AG Barr had testified in May that he believed “spying did occur” on the Trump campaign. “I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal,” he told Congress. “I am not suggesting that those rules were violated, but I think it’s important to look at them.”
The far-left Nance has written a book about Russian collusion in the 2016 election, claiming the Russians were “working” for the Republican National Committee.
