WASHINGTON – During a Monday appearance on The Evening Edit, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) discussed the mainstream media’s repeated use of faulty sources to push their false collusion narrative.
A video of the interview can be found here, and excerpts are below.
“When I was briefed on August 6, I felt that briefing was a complete setup. Which by the way, I’ve been set up in the past where it has been leaked that I had been briefed on Russian disinformation or be careful about information out of Ukraine... I always felt that the August 6th, 2020 briefing was a political set-up. Now they’ve sprung the trap. They’ve done exactly what I thought they would do, is use that briefing to say that Senator Johnson was warned about Russian disinformation, and he proceeded anyway. I would ask anybody who takes a look at our report, where is there any Russian disinformation?”
“There’s obviously an unequal administration of justice in the United States nowadays. It’s very sad to see, but you know I go back to that text we highlighted between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page on December, in 2016, Strzok texted Page ‘our sisters are leaking like mad, scorned, worried, political, they're kicking into overdrive.’ What’s he talking about there? Well he’s talking about the leaks to the news media about Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, which was completely false and the mainstream media has never outed the sources that provided them with completely false information. They're doing the exact same thing now in 2021. It’s shameful, but it’s just proving that the mainstream media is completely biased, they're part and parcel of the Democratic party, and I hope America is waking up to this reality.”
