Danielle Ryan - Media linking NHS leak to Russia is absurd, but using the Atlantic Council & Ben Nimmo as the source is journalistic malpractice

Jeremy Corbyn had a leaked document showing the secret talks between the Conservatives and America diplomats on the trade talks where the NHS was discussed. Boris Johnson was embarrassed as he said there had never been any meetings.

Anyway, who leaked the documents?

Well, would you believe, now they are saying the Russians did it.


The new effort to cast doubt over leaked NHS documents as a potential ‘Russian influence’ plot is nothing more than a pre-election smear campaign against the Labour Party, concocted by con artists and amplified by the Tory press.

But who would be willing to bravely step up to the plate and point the finger at Moscow. Enter the Atlantic Council — the omnipresent US-funded ‘think tank’ where researchers specialize in magicking up Russia links wherever a desperate status-quo protecting political party might need them. This astonishing talent for sniffing-out alleged traces of Russkie interference is matched only by their ability to have the establishment media collectively gasp in admiration at their sleuthy skills.

Whoever leaked it, deserves a note of thanks.
