Trump's chief-of-staff now says Russia is to blame for hacking the DNC - the opposite of the president-elect's repeatedly stated position
Donald Trump's designated chief-of-staff, Reince Priebus, just had an interview with NBC's Chris Wallace. And he flubbed it big time.
Mainstream shill heavyweight Wallace was prying Priebus relentlessly on the absurdly fraudulent DNC "Russia hacking" charge. Priebus immediately caved, claiming Trump accepts the CIA's findings. (Trump has made no such statement.) Then he tried to back peddle a little by spreading blame around:
I think he accepts the findings, Chris...But here's the thing that everyone needs to understand. When this whole thing started, it started from the Russians 50 years ago. In other words, this is something that's been going on in our elections for many, many years. The Russians, the Chinese, the Iranians — it happens, every election period.
Apparently not satisfied, Wallace continued pressing Priebus to name Russia at the culprit:
Wallace: Who's the primary actor here?
Priebus: The primary actor is the foreign entity that's perpetrating the crime to begin with, I'm not denying that.
Wallace: Which was?
This is an epic fail by Trump's chief-of-staff - an establishment insider picked to grease the new outsider president's interactions with Congress.
Donald Trump has the neocon establishment in a head-lock. They have been caught red-handed lying, with the truth being disseminated widely in alternative media. The US government's and media's claims being demolished on a daily basis. It would be crazy for The Donald to throw in the towel now - and anyway, it's totally against his style.
Reince is a careerist cuckservative who seemed promising, but he may have just screwed himself. Detente with Russia is going to be the centerpiece of Trump's foreign policy. He cannot afford a chief-of-staff who is contradicting his boss's stated position at every turn.
