For the last four years the media and their bosses in the Democrat Party have been shouting about Russian election interference.
Meanwhile, most Americans now know the biggest interference is coming from places like Communist China and the Middle East.
And now Donald Trump has become the target of fake emails sent by Iran.
Almost four years ago Donald Trump won a stunning upset over Hillary Clinton to become the 45th President of the United States.
And almost as soon as victory was declared, the radical left and their media puppets tried to come up with excuses for their loss.
They settled on an unusual and completely made up villain – the Russians.
They even went to the extent of having a disgraced former spy create a “dossier” of purely fabricated stories about Trump and the Russians.
And even though all of it has been clearly disproven, for many on the left, and in the media, it’s still true. At least in their warped socialist minds.
Meanwhile the media has ignored the true culprits in U.S. election interference.
At a press conference this week, the Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe announced the U.S. government believes Iran, along with Russia, has acquired voter registration information and is attempting to influence the 2020 U.S. election.
“We have identified that two foreign actors, Iran and Russia, have taken specific actions to influence public opinion relating to our elections,” Ratcliffe said.
“To that end, we have already seen Iran sending spoofed emails designed to intimidate voters, incite social unrest, and damage President Trump. You may have seen some reporting on this in the last 24 hours or you may have even been one of the recipients of those emails.”
The emails were an attempt to scare voters into thinking Donald Trump supporters were threatening them.
Ratcliffe also said Iran had been distributing a video loaded with false information about fraudulent ballots.
“Iran is distributing other content to include a video that implies that individuals could cast fraudulent ballots, even from overseas. This video and any claims about such allegedly fraudulent ballots are not true,” the DNI said.
The surprise election security press conference was held after Democrat voters in Florida and Alaska alerted election officials that they had received threating emails to vote for Trump “or else!”
CNN and other outlets reported that the emails appeared to be sent from addresses associated with the pro-Trump group known as “Proud Boys.”
The chairman of the Proud Boys, Enrique Tarrio, however flatly denied that his group sent the emails when contacted by CNN and said they were working with the FBI to identify who was impersonating them.
“We have spoken to the FBI and are working with them. I hope whoever did this is arrested for voter intimidation and for maliciously impersonating our group,” Tarrio said.
Democrats, of course, responded to the claims of Iran interference with skepticism.
In fact, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) continued to insist that Russia, not Iran, was the real threat.
Of course, as usual, the Speaker could offer no evidence of such a thing.
