Democrats and the media have been claiming for over a year that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election.

Trump claims this is fake news.

Now one CIA agent has stepped out of the shadows to reveal the bombshell truth about Trump and Russia.

Philip Giraldi was a former CIA and Army Intelligence officer for 20 years.

He spent his career working terrorism cases in Europe and the Middle East.

And he has a shocking admission.

The entire Trump-Russia collusion angle was fake news cooked up by the Clinton campaign.

He wrote in The Daily Caller:

“At roughly the same time the Clinton campaign began a major effort to connect Trump with Russia as a way to discredit him and his campaign and to deflect the revelations of her own campaign malfeasance coming from WikiLeaks. In late August, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid wrote to FBI head James Comey and demanded that the “connections between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign” be investigated. In September Senator Diane Feinstein and Representative Adam Schiff of the Senate and House intelligence committees respectively publicly accused the Russians of meddling in the election “based on briefings we have received.”

The linkage between the dossier and the timing of the Democratic Party attempt to tie Trump to Moscow is significant given what has been revealed over the past several days. As it turns out, it has been confirmed that Steele’s firm Fusion GPS was indeed paid not only by the DNC, but also by the Clinton Campaign itself. A Washington lawyer named Marc Elias, whose firm Perkins Coie worked for both the DNC and Hillary, was the go-between on the arrangement, which began in April 2016 and continued until the election.

As a former intelligence officer who has seen numerous overseas investigations done for clients, I can say with some confidence that the Steele Dossier is a composite of some fact, a lot of speculation, and even occasional fiction. Some indisputable and confirmable information is inevitably used to provide credibility for a lot of speculation and false stories that were intended to sow doubt and confusion. Gossip and rumors are reported as fact, with the whole product being put together in such a fashion as to appear credible to satisfy a client interested in exploitable information rather than the truth. Including some proper names, which the dossier does occasionally, provides credibility and the FBI’s ability to confirm some of the dates and places regarding travel and meetings provided bona fides for the entire document and resulted in the launching of a top-level law enforcement investigation.

The dossier was designed to dig up “dirt” on Trump and his associates, but, more to the point, it was clearly intended from the start to do so by manufacturing and nurturing a Russian angle. It sought to discredit Donald Trump and to deceive the public, which suggests that Trump has been right all along regarding something like a conspiracy against him which included the active participation of the FBI and possibly other national security agencies.”

The FBI has been conducting an investigation into these allegations for over a year, and it has now morphed into Robert Mueller’s wide-ranging special counsel probe.

Three Congressional investigations have dragged on for months.

They all have one thing in common.

None of them have turned up one shred of evidence of collusion.

Do you agree the Trump-Russia collusion story was fake news cooked up by the Democrats?
