'Dumb, Partisan Fiction': GOP Strategist Slams Trump's 'House Co-Conspirators' for Strzok Sideshow As Mueller Indicts 12 Russians
Following special prosecutor Robert Mueller's indictment of 12 Russian officers who actively sought to influence the 2016 U.S. election, Republican strategist Rick Wilson blasted the Republican sideshow in the House that found right-wing representatives interrogating FBI agent Peter Strzok.
The conservative congress members attempted to downplay the role of Russian intervention on then-candidate Donald Trump's behalf by suggesting the investigation came from a place of Strzok's personal bias.
"The reality distortion field on the right that even now denies Russian interference, and minimizes, ignores, or elides Putin's intent to elect (and suborn) Trump, is a dumb, partisan fiction that always collapses in the face of actual intelligence and prosecutorial diligence," Wilson wrote on Twitter.
"Yesterday's clown show trying to make Peter Strzok into History's Greatest Monster just had its ass kicked," Wilson continued. "Real indictments and real intelligence beat imaginary conspiracy b.s. every single time."
