Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager admitted in Federal court on Friday that the Clinton campaign, authorised by the Democratic presidential nominee herself, was responsible for leaking fake info to journalists alleging connections between Donald Trump and a Russian bank.

Trump, who was was furious, told Fox News “this is one of the greatest political scandals in history”.

He added: “For three years, I had to fight her off, and fight those crooked people off, and you’ll never get your reputation fully back.”

Again Trump said “Where do I get my reputation back?”

Clinton’s former campaign manager Robby Mook testified as part of the first criminal trial out of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe. He said Clinton approved and “agreed” to share the discredited data with the media.

The Mail Online reports: Trump also lashed out at fellow Republicans Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, and his own Attorney General Bill Barr, accusing them of failing to respond more forcefully to the Russian collusion claims.

I had to fight them off,’ Trump said. ‘And if we had real leadership, instead of people like Mitch McConnell, they would do something about it. And guys like Bill Barr. They would have done something about it.’ 

Mook’s testimony came in the trial of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman, who is accused of lying to the FBI about his campaign ties when he brought them allegations that a secret server in Trump Tower was communicating with Kremlin-controlled Alfa Bank.

Former FBI General Counsel James Baker testified Thursday that the bureau investigated the ‘covert server’ allegation and found that ‘there was nothing there.’ 

Sussman was the first to be charged in Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the FBI’s 2016 Trump-Russia probe. 

Mook told the court that he was first briefed about Alfa Bank by campaign general counsel Marc Elias.

He said he also discussed it with then senior adviser Jake Sullivan – now the White House National Security Adviser- and campaign chairman John Podesta about whether to share the information with a reporter.

‘I discussed it with Hillary as well,’ Mook told the court.

He also admitted the campaign wasn’t ‘totally confident in the legitimacy of the data’, but was hoping a reporter would follow it up and determine if it was ‘accurate’ or ‘substantive.’

‘I don’t remember the substance of the conversation, but notionally, the discussion was, hey, we have this and we want to share it with a reporter,’ Mook said.

They decided to share it with the reporter after the meeting, he testified.

‘I recall it being a member of our press staff,’ Mook said. ‘We authorized a staff member to share it with the media.’


  1. He can’t tell the truth ,or doesn’t know it because Melanias a Catholic and she could divorce him and take him to the cleaners. .And Musk better watch his back with his new lady too .

  2. All the sane people saw that this was fake, question is, was Trump knowingly in on this? was it all an act? is he really the other side of the same coin. Kind of looks like he is.
    Typical Republican, they had the senate and presidency, but just could not do anything about anything. Sessions sat on his hands, then came fat boy, can’t remember his name, he was a do nothing. I think they all are in on the destruction of this country. I think the republicans play a role in this act to keep us at rest, and thinking that we have representation that will protect our rights and property. but I think we are totally mistaken. We are being led to the slaughter house.
    we keep on moooing our way there.

    • Fat boy Pompeii o sabotaged ruthlessly He did plenty They ,all of the Catholics that surrounded Trump the Protestant ,all did plenty Subversive saboteurs setting him up totally in every way possible .Pence , McConnel et Al .He was surrounded by agents of the Vatican .

    • Sheep bleat .The “good shepherd ” Wolfe’s in sheep’s clothing Romulus raised by she Wolfe’s deceives

    • Trump made the swamp bigger than when Obama was in there.

      Of course he’s was in on it!

      And look at all the GOP Congress members sitting on their hands. They tweet well but do absolutely nothing. It’s an all out war on the American citizen.

  3. What “reputation”? Seriously.

    You mean the reputation he gained by shutting down the economy and empowered huge corporations with the “essential” business label? Maybe he was referring to his reputation for funding untested toxic injections? Or perhaps he’s talking about his reputation for his two false flags in Syria, his false flag in Vegas (civilian massacre) or his major participation in the Covid 19 false flag?

    This cat is rotten to the core with the deep state stench. He belongs in Gitmo …… right along side the Clinton Crime Family, the Bush Mafia and the undocumented president and his drag queen boyfriend. DeSantis is also compromised by providing cover for the fedgov Covid (death) protocol.

  4. The real question will be “when do I get my Presidency back”, and how do we reconcile the fact that approximately 18 months or more we have been governed by a false government appointing false judges and cabinent officials making horrible decisions like allowing terrorists and infected illegals to cross our borders virtually unchallenged. And in the meantime the death jabs (Covid vaccines) are being forced on our armed forces which will weaken them and eventually debilitate the armed forces.
