Ever since President Trump was elected liberals have been pushing the idea that Trump colluded with the Russians in order to win. You might have heard the argument, numerous times, that all 17 intelligence agencies believe that he did. This lie was started by the New York Times. As it turns out, only four out of the 17 intelligence agencies think this.
The author put a tiny correction at the bottom of her article. “Correction: June 29, 2017
A White House Memo article on Monday about President Trump’s deflections and denials about Russia referred incorrectly to the source of an intelligence assessment that said Russia orchestrated hacking attacks during last year’s presidential election,” says the article.
“The assessment was made by four intelligence agencies — the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Security Agency. The assessment was not approved by all 17 organizations in the American intelligence community,” she wrote.
The Associated Press also admitted their fake news. “In stories published April 6, June 2, June 26 and June 29, The Associated Press reported that all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies have agreed that Russia tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump,” they wrote.
“That assessment was based on information collected by three agencies – the FBI, CIA and National Security Agency – and published by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which represents all U.S. intelligence agencies. Not all 17 intelligence agencies were involved in reaching the assessment,” they wrote. Are you glad Fake News is finally being caught?
