In a cruel twist of fate for the darling of the liberal media, CNN itself is now being investigated by Russia for their involvement in Moscow’s legislative process.
CNN has been at the center of a war with both President Trump and conservative America over their phony allegations of Russia’s involvement in the U.S. election of 2016, and their purported yet unproven ties to Donald Trump himself. Now, having already earned the badge of shame of “fake news” by the President himself, Russia has decided to investigate the mainstream American “news” outlet for possible interference within the Russian legislature.
“The investigation would be carried out by the Committee on Information Policy, Information Technology and Communications, a committee in the State Duma. According to multiple reports, CNN, Radio Liberty, and the Voice of America were singled out by the parliament, but other ‘U.S. media’ will be investigated as well.
“The decision was reportedly made in retaliation to a bill introduced by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) earlier this week. The bill would empower the Department of Justice with more tools to investigate state-owned Russian media outlet RT America for any violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
“’We have good reason to believe that RT News is coordinating with the Russian government to spread misinformation and undermine our democratic process,’ said Shaheen in a press release issued by her office. ‘The American public has a right to know if this is the case. RT News has made public statements boasting that it can dodge our laws with shell corporations, and it’s time for the Department of Justice to investigate. My bill provides the authority needed to request documentation of RT News and find out who they’re accountable to.’”
Russia’s accusations are simply another in a litany of complaints made against the American propagandists, who openly and vehemently oppose the Presidency of Donald Trump and other republican politicians, and add yet another black eye to the already beleaguered institution.
