Zakaria Gives Hil a Pass on Her Campaign’s Role in Russia Hoax

May 4, 2021

Sunday on CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS, host Fareed Zakaria asked bitter, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton whether Russia sought “revenge” on her in the 2016 election — neglecting to mention that her own campaign was responsible for the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory.

Instead, Zakaria painted Clinton as the helpless victim of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s machinations. But it was Hillary’s people who paid Fusion GPS to develop the fraudulent “Russia dossier” that became the basis for the hoax that Russia had colluded with the Trump campaign.

“Madam Secretary, let me ask you, you started out your tenure as secretary of State trying a re-set with the Russians and trying to figure out whether there were ways to compromise with them,” the propagandist Zakaria began. “What transpired by the end of it was Putin deciding that you had tried to support pro-democracy movements in Russia and therefore he was going to take revenge on you by all accounts, by American intelligence accounts that is one of the reasons he interfered in the 2016 election. So I guess what I’m wondering is, can you be objective about this? Is it worth another re-set with Vladimir Putin?

Hil replied, “I think, Fareed, my approach would be similar to what I see happening, which is to sanction Russia over its cyberattacks, over its election interference, making it absolutely clear that they are a bad actor when it comes to their continuing efforts to undermine democracies in the West particularly…”

Fact check: the real threat of election interference, the real bad actor undermining Western democracy, is Hillary’s own Party and its media enablers like CNN and Fareed Zakaria.
