Truest statement of the week II

Russiagate fanatic Michael Isikoff, co-author of “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin's War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” has been producing a series of “Conspiracyland ” podcasts for Yahoo News so as to put an end to any suspicion that Democratic or Clinton operatives murdered Seth Rich, the young Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer who was shot dead on his way home from work on July 25, 2016, in Washington, D.C. Curious project—Isikoff’s—because the best way to bury inconvenient suspicions, expressions, or even truths is to ignore them, refuse to talk about them, or pretend they don’t exist. Why start a radio drama series, replete with music and special effects, about something you want people to forget?  
Seth Rich had access to the DNC emails. He could have downloaded them to a thumb drive and then given the thumb drive to Wikileaks, or he could have uploaded them to a dropbox, but no one has ever produced any definitive proof that he did. Whether they were downladed or hacked, the emails exposed the DNC conspiracy to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders. No one, however, has proven that that’s why Clinton lost. “The evidence that WikiLeaks had an impact is circumstantial,” wrote Five Thirty Eight political analyst Harry Enten in December 2016. “Trump, for instance, won among voters who decided who to vote for in October [by] 51 percent to 37 percent, according to national exit polls . That’s Trump’s best time period. He carried voters who decided in the final week, when you might expect Comey’s letter to have had the largest impact, [by] 45 percent to 42 percent. (Although, Trump’s margin among those who decided in the final week was wider in the exit polls in some crucial swing states .) And while Clinton’s lead was dropping in the FiveThirtyEight polls-only forecast before the Comey letter was released, the drop accelerated slightly afterward. Of course, onething didn’t sink Clinton. The evidence suggests WikiLeaks is among the factors that might have contributed to her loss, but we really can’t say much more than that.”
Former NSA Technical Director William Binney conducted several data transmission experiments and thereby proved that the email could not have been sent across the Atlantic at the speed indicated by the time stamps. However, another security state pro suggested that the DNC might have had an unusually speedy Internet connection. However, if that were true, wouldn’t the DNC have long since produced their Internet service bills to prove it?
In any case, it would seem more important that the DNC interfered in the 2016 presidential election. They stole the nomination and most likely the presidency from Bernie Sanders, but that was of course buried in liberal hysterics over Trump’s election. The Democratic National Press (DNP) had to find someone to blame besides the Democratsand their own thieving national committee, so we were subjected to the two-year, $30-million Russiagate investigation that finally ended with the grudging conclusion that there’s no evidence to indict Trump.
