NBC’s Mitchell dings Clinton for ongoing 2016 conspiracy theories
On a recent MSNBC “Rachel Maddow Show” broadcast, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell publicly chided Hillary Clinton for continuing to blame her 2016 presidential election loss on Russia.
Ms. Mitchell, discussing Mrs. Clinton’s recent tirades against the vast right-wing conspiracy, said: “Well she first of all, really drilled down on the fake news, the role of Infowars and said that it was very clear to her that there were Americans directing and colluding, conspiring really, with the Russian hackers, with Guccifer, with the others who were involved in the hacking, in the dropping of WikiLeaks … and saying that they were doing so with such political sophistication. She’s basically pointing to the Trump campaign, saying that the dots are now being connected in the investigation.”
Mrs. Mitchell went on to note Mrs. Clinton brought up Jared Kushner, Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway — all as supposed links in the line that led to Russian-Republican collusion.
“So, she is drawing a conspiracy theory,” Mitchell said. “She doesn’t have the evidence, but she is obviously hoping that this is what — that Robert Mueller and what the congressional committee’s going to do.”
