In an interview with the New York Times this morning, Trump called the investigation of the Russia hack “a witch hunt.” That’s the same phrase used this morning by Russia Today, aka RT, a Russian state propaganda organ.
It’s no coincidence that Trump and the Russian government are using the exact same new talking point at the exact same moment in time. Either Trump’s team coordinated with the Russians, or at the very least, Trump saw the Russian report and decided to parrot it.
Which raises the question of why Team Trump continues to use Russian government sources to inform their campaign and now transition. This isn’t the first time that Team Trump has been caught using Russian talking points.The narrative on the left that Trump is PUtin's stooge, or at least they are coordinating.
Remember how Obama was the "Manchurian candidate" for the right?
Remember how the left all but accused the right of treason in trying to delegitimize Obama, or HRC condemning Trump for not saying he would automatically accept the election results?
The more things change, the more they remain the same. Politicians will be politicians, and partisans will always be partisans.
Trump and Russians use same talking point to disparage CIA, Congress over hacks
