Obama’s longest-serving Political Affairs State Undersecretary Wendy Sherman who said on Wednesday Hillary lost to President Donald J. Trump because Obama is black on June 5th spread the Associated Press fake-news lie that 17 U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded Russia interfered in the election.
Debating George W. Bush National Security Council Director Michael Doran last month at the American Jewish Committee Global Forum in Washington, Sherman said falsely, “The 17 intelligence agencies said without a doubt that Russia interfered with our election and it appeared from their analysis that they did so at least towards the end to advantage Donald Trump.”
At the AJC forum, Sherman held fast to the bogus Democratic Party line—one The New York Times continues to spread—that Hillary Clinton advanced at an Oct. 19th presidential debate. It was then the Democratic nominee said, “We have 17 intelligence agencies, civilian and military, who have all concluded that these espionage attacks, these cyberattacks, come from the highest levels of the Kremlin, and they are designed to influence our election”—a lie built off an Oct. 7th statement from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) that made no reference to the conclusions of 17 agencies.
Sherman’s wanton June 5th lie begins at 54 minutes into this clip:
A more comprehensive assessment the ODNI declassified for a Jan. 6th release made clear that only the FBI, CIA and NSA were confident in Russian interference and only they had been the sources for the ODNI’s October statement.
Sherman’s shameless deception for the Clinton campaign leaves little doubt why she played the race card at the Aspen Ideas Festival on Wednesday to explain why a white woman didn’t beat President Donald J. Trump, saying, “It was pretty hard to elect a woman after you’ve elected the first African-American president.”
Here’s video of Sherman saying that:
An outcry from patriots forced the Associated Press on Friday to admit that they had been telling the exact same, party-line Russia lie for nearly three straight months. The AP’s quiet admission has not resulted in their correcting a June 22nd article from their blogger Vivian Salama—which the Times republished and has still themselves not fixed—that insists, “All 17 intelligence agencies have agreed Russia was behind the hack of Democratic email systems and tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Trump.”
A White House Memo article on Monday about President Trump’s deflections and denials about Russia referred incorrectly to the source of an intelligence assessment that said Russia orchestrated hacking attacks during last year’s presidential election. The assessment was made by four intelligence agencies — the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Security Agency. The assessment was not approved by all 17 organizations in the American intelligence community.
Mainstream media liars, astonishingly, even less honest than the Times include USA Today‘s Eliza Collins who wrote in October “Clinton is correct” that 17 intelligence agencies had made a Russian interference assessment.
Collins’ shilling—in an article titled no less than “Yes, 17 intelligence agencies really did say Russia was behind hacking”—pretended to piggyback off of Politifact for her lie, but even her source Politifact had conceded at the time that 17 agencies had not made assessments “independently.”
