As the Russian collusion hoax continues to collapse with the Durham probe, news networks that were once preoccupied with coverage of Russia are now running from it.
According to NewsBusters, “On Thursday, Special Prosecutor John Durham brought Russian national Igor Danchenko — who was the primary source in the infamous and debunked dossier — into court on charges of lying to the FBI with his information.”
Reports are nonexistent of Danchenko’s indictment on the networks that devoted themselves to covering Russian collusion during the early years of Trump’s presidency. NewsBusters reports, “The ABC, CBS, NBC evening news programs (January 20, 2017 – July 20, 2019) alone devoted an astonishing 2,634 minutes to it.”
Journalist Glenn Greenwald appeared on FNC’s MediaBuzz with host Howard Kurtz to detail how the news of Danchenko’s indictment demolishes any trace of trustworthiness of the media.
“News networks that were once preoccupied with coverage of Russia are now running from it…”
“The overall narrative of the Trump presidency that came from the liberal sector of the media is proving to be a fraud and not an innocent one but a deliberate and coordinated one that came from a union between Clinton operatives, the security state services, the FBI and the CIA, and the corporate media. Those are the guilty parties that drowned our politics in this fraud for three or four years,” Greenwald said.
Greenwald explains that the media is trying to pass this embarrassing mark on their record by using a strategy that pretends “the Steele dossier [was] covered only by cable crazies like Rachel Maddow and people like that, they’re kind of trying to scapegoat her and pretend that the real serious journalistic institutions like The New York Times and the Post that gave Pulitzers or were given Pulitzers for this story were actually serious journalists who didn’t fall for any of this.”
Greenwald adds that there was “one little sentence buried in the Washington Post article, ‘Oh this calls into question some of our past reporting.’ I guess it’s better than nothing but it’s kind of shocking that that’s all they are going to do in passing — is just to say ‘Yeah, I guess it maybe actually shows that much of what we said was wrong.’”
The false narrative of the Steele dossier was peddled incessantly by the media who had their goal set on destroying President Trump and his administration.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’
Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social, “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”
Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”
It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.
Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.
And the escalation of war is visible.
Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.
Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.
Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”
Morning. Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”
F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.
Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
