Jonathan Turley Puts Hillary Clinton on Notice: ‘The Most Successful Disinformation Campaign in American Politics’

Liberal law professor Jonathan Turley has slammed Hillary Clinton for pulling off “one of the most successful disinformation campaigns in American politics.”

The George Washington University legal scholar put Hillary on notice after 2016 Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook testified Friday that personally approved the false Trump-Russia Alfa Bank smear.

Mook testified during the trial of former Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann.

Sussmann is currently on trial for lying to the FBI on charges stemming from the investigation of Special Counsel John Durham.

Mook testified under oath that Hillary Clinton ordered her team to push the smear to the media, despite doubts that it wasn’t legitimate information.

Turley responded to the admission by stating that “Mook implicated Clinton as green-lighting the gas-lighting of the electorate.”

Turley wrote: “Yet, there was her former campaign manager, Robby Mook, telling a jury that Clinton personally approved a plan to spread the claim of covert communications between the Trump organization and the Russian bank.

“It was one of the most successful disinformation campaigns in American politics, and Mook implicated Clinton as green-lighting the gas-lighting of the electorate.

“The mere mention of Clinton’s name sent shockwaves through Washington.

“In past scandals, the Clintons have always evaded direct responsibility as aides were investigated or convicted, from the Whitewater land dealings to cattle futures.

“Even when long-sought documents in Whitewater were discovered outside of the family quarters and bearing Hillary Clinton’s fingerprints, Washington quickly moved on.”

Turley continues to prove his point by bringing up an important but largely ignored incident.

“On July 28, 2016, then-CIA Director John Brennan briefed President Obama on Hillary Clinton’s alleged plan to tie Donald Trump to Russia as ‘a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.’

“Obama reportedly was told how Clinton allegedly approved ‘a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service.’

“Thus, Mook testified that Clinton did precisely what Brennan warned Obama was being planned.”

Turley then brings the issue back to the future.

Biden just had to pause his new disinformation board after it came out that the person he picked to lead it was a serial spreader of misinformation.

He wrote:

“Months after approving the Alpha Bank strategy, Clinton called in December 2016 to censor opponents whom she accused of spreading falsehoods to try to influence elections.

“She declared that ‘it’s now clear that so-called fake news can have real-world consequences.’

“Indeed, Clinton has pushed for state and corporate censorship while demanding a ‘global reckoning’ with those who spread disinformation.

“Of course, Sussmann could still face the real consequence of conviction given the strength of the evidence against him.

“Yet, there will likely not be consequences — let alone a reckoning” — for Hillary Clinton,” he wrote.
