Democrats have willfully and repeatedly peddled, discredited and disputed information to tarnish President Donald Trump and his administration, begging the question of who's actually colluding with Russia, The Washington Times reports.
What started as opposition research — most common during election campaigns — has become the bible of Democrats in their attempts to smear Trump long after the election, most uncommon, the Times reported.
Especially given that the author himself, former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, has distanced himself from it.
"If anyone colluded with the Russians, it was the Democrats," a former Trump campaign adviser told the Times. "After all, they've routinely shopped around false claims from the debunked Steele dossier, which listed sources including senior Kremlin officials."
Steele, who in an April court filing in London said the information he collected was unverified and should never been made public, used Kremlin-linked sources for his dossier on Trump, common fodder for Democrats to sling at the administration even now, the Times reported.
In other words, Democrats continue to peddle disinformation sourced from the same country they continue to try to link Trump and his former campaign to on a near daily basis.
Then Trump complained that Democrats aren't held to the same standards as members of his party.
"If anyone should be investigated in Washington, it ought to be Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Mark Warner and their staffers," the Trump campaign adviser told the Times.
Schiff and Swalwell are Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, and Warner is a ranking member on the Senate Intelligence Committee.
