NBC’s Mitchell dings Clin­ton for on­go­ing 2016 con­spir­acy the­o­ries

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Ch­eryl K. Chum­ley

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.”
