Yesterday, Hillary Clinton and her allies were restarting the offensive against Donald Trump by trying to rehash the wild theory that he is somehow a Russian agent working for the Kremlin’s interests.
Perhaps the Clinton campaign has become desperate, completely running out of ammo to divert attention away from the reopened FBI investigation into Hillary’s private email server, and in a panic tried the old “Trump is a Russian agent” narrative.
The timing for Clinton couldn’t have been worse, as shortly after she sent out a tweet demanding that Trump release his supposed ties to Russia, it was then revealed by the FBI that there is no evidence of Trump having anything to do with the Kremlin.
In what was no doubt a painful headline for the writers at The New York Times to produce, they reported on the announcement that “Investigating Donald Trump, F.B.I. Sees No Clear Link to Russia“. I can only imagine that really took the wind out of the Clinton campaign’s sails, as it seems their last course of attack on Trump before the election was to try and convince voters of his imagined ties to Russia.
Wikileaks even joined the fray, as Julian Assange has also been accused of working with Russia to influence the US election, pointing out the irony that the only candidate who has had concrete dealings with Russia is in fact Hillary Clinton and her campaign chair John Podesta.
No link between Trump & Russia
No link between Assange & Russia
But Podesta & Clinton involved in selling 20% of US uranium to Russia

So we have the FBI clearing Donald Trump of any Russian connections while at the same time they reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton and her mishandling of classified materials during her tenure as Secretary of State. We also have the Clinton’s connection to Russia, as she was one of the parties responsible for improving the sale of 20% of America’s Uranium to a Russian company, while at the same time receiving millions of dollars from Russia through the Clinton foundation.
It’s almost as if the Clintons are projecting their own flaws onto Donald Trump, as all of the misdeeds they claim he has performed, they are in fact guilty of.
Does Hillary Clinton have any damaging attacks to throw at Donald Trump to stop her nose dive in the polls due to her constant scandals? Time is running out if they do, as even if they did launch a serious offensive it would take days for it really run it’s course in the media and impact voter’s decisions. Absent some sort of horrific event, Donald Trump definitely has the momentum going into election day.
