As 21WIRE reported earlier, since this past summer Washington and its media surrogates have been seeding the news cycle with the talking point that Russia was responsible for the DC Leaks and WikiLeaks document dumps, and that Russia is somehow trying to ‘hack’ the US elections.
Here’s what the Clinton campaign claimed:
Once again, Russian propaganda network RT shows collusion w/ @wikileaks by promoting new email dump before even WL does.

Of course, they were completely wrong.
21WIRE’s Patrick Henningsen spoke to RT International about the Hillary Clinton campaign’s ridiculous accusation that somehow RT News had the latest batch of emails before WikiLeaks did, and how the US media and political establishment can’t comprehend a reality beyond their transient Twitter feeds.
