While Democrats have continued to desperately and relentlessly reach for a Trump-Russia scandal for more than a year now, the only evidence the never-ending “investigation” has yielded to date completely contradicts the liberal narrative. That is, until now. Well, sort of.
Yes, it appears Russia really was trying to interfere in American politics, but…not in the manner which liberals have been hoping.
From the Blaze:
Russian president Vladimir Putin has colluded with someone in America to hurt the United States. He has teamed up with U.S. environmental groups to paint fracking in a bad light, according to a June 29th letter sent to Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin.
The letter, sent by Representatives Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and Randy Weber (R-Texas) of the Subcommittee on Energy, states that “Russia … engaged actively with … environmental organizations working against shale gas – to maintain dependence on Russian imported gas,” according to the former secretary general of NATO.
American environmental groups have been trying for years to kill fracking, despite evidence showing that the practice is better for the environment. Russia would also love to end American fracking, but for different reasons:
Chris Salcedo said on today’s “Chris Saledo Show” that the strong American energy exports President Donald Trump is promoting release Eastern European nations from Russia’s energy stranglehold. “Doesn’t seem very Russia-friendly to me,” he remarked.
The news comes as President Trump has renewed America’s commitment to energy independence. In a recent interview with Christian Broadcasting Network, Trump highlighted his support for fracking, suggesting is the exact opposite of what Russia would want:
Trump said that if Hillary Clinton won in 2016, she would have “decimated” the American military, to Putin’s approval.
“Why would he want me [to win]?” Trump asked, adding that he supports hydraulic fracturing which threatens Russian oil interests.
And fracking isn’t his only point of contention here, folks. In case anyone has forgotten, the US air strikes in Syria which targeted Assad forces that are friendly to Moscow, were strongly condemned by the Russian government.
I’m sure liberals are in dismay over this news, but as you know…the narrative they’ve been spinning will probably continue, anyway.
