Bernie Sanders Blames Crooked Hillary For Hiding Russian Meddling Info
Last week dirty cop Mueller indicted 13 Russians for operating an online troll farm to meddle in the 2016 presidential election.
The indictment showed these Russian trolls were also supporting Hillary’s Democrat rival, Bernie Sanders.
Sanders said Wednesday that he had no idea Russians trolls were promoting his campaign then blasted Hillary Clinton for not doing more to inform people about the trolls.
The left is eating its own over the Russia hysteria and it’s glorious.
Bernie Sanders gave an interview to Vermont Public Radio Wednesday when one of the listeners seemed to accuse Sanders of knowing about the Russian trolls during the election.
The exchange between Sanders and the interviwer:
“If he was aware that Russians were trying to promote him and divide Democrats against Mrs. Clinton, why did he not communicate this to his supporters?” the listener asked Sanders.
“This was not supporting me any more than they were supporting groups like Black Lives Matter that are fighting for social justice,” Sanders said.
“I did not know that Russian bots were promoting my campaign,” Sanders added. “Russians bots were not promoting my campaign. What we found out is that in April and May, it appeared that there were lots of strange things happening, attacking Hillary Clinton.”
The interviewer asked Sanders why he and his campaign did not tell his supporters about Russian interference if they knew Moscow was meddling to sow divisions.
“I would say that the real question to be asked is what was the Clinton campaign—they had more information about this than we did, and at this point, we were working with them,” he responded.
“So did the Clinton campaign say, ‘Don’t talk about this?'” the interviewer asked.
“No, of course not, but who do you think would be raising that issue?” Sanders said.
“I could see a world in which Mrs. Clinton said, ‘It’s the Russians,’ and Sanders supporters say, ‘Oh, that’s baloney,’ but if Sanders says it, they say, ‘OK,'” his interviewer said.
“We knew what we knew when we knew it, and that’s about all that I can say,” Sanders said.

This is hilarious. The Russian trolls weren’t promoting any candidate in particular. To the chagrin of the fake news media, Russian trolls posted anti-Trump, pro-Trump and anti-Hillary and pro-Hillary ads.
The fake news media is quietly shifting their Trump-Russia collusion hoax to ‘why isn’t Trump doing anything about it?’
The Russians set up shop in 2014 while Obama was president which is another blow to the media’s Trump-Russia hysteria.
President Trump unleashed ferocious tweetstorms this week hammering Obama for doing nothing about the Russian troll farms which were created under his watch.
