Consortium News has the article The FBI Hand Behind Russia-gate.
Despite the extraordinary gravity of the charge, even New York Times correspondent Scott Shane noted that proof was lacking. He wrote at the time: “What is missing from the [the Jan. 6] public report is what many Americans most eagerly anticipated: hard evidence to back up the agencies’ claims that the Russian government engineered the election attack. … Instead, the message from the agencies essentially amounts to ‘trust us.’”
This excerpt is the least of what is in this article, but it does show why I stopped believing in Russia-gate. This is about the initial ‘intelligence” report that “proved” it was Russia doing the meddling.
