CIA: Washington Post Report Linking Russian Government to Trump & Election Hacking Is “Outright Lie”

The Central Intelligence Agency is declaring the Washington Post’s much-hyped story linking the Russian government to hacking the presidential election to help Donald Trump an “outright lie,” according to CIA personnel with direct knowledge of the case. …

The Washington Post’s story, however, contained no CIA sources and in fact, no credible U.S. intelligence agency sources whatsoever. Instead, it hinged on what unnamed lawmakers had supposedly been told by unidentified, supposed CIA-linked sources in “secret” briefings …

“It’s an outright lie,” a CIA analyst divulged to True Pundit. “There’s nothing definitive like that. There are leads from activity originating in Finland, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Britain, France, China and Russia.”

Multiple CIA sources are now denouncing the Washington Post for knowingly reporting misleading national security intelligence. Intelligence insiders said no one in the Agency or in the FBI, who is running at least one parallel inquiry, has ruled out a possible internal leak within the Democratic National Committee from actor(s) inside the United States who funneled private DNC emails to Wikileaks. …

CIA and intelligence sources … quickly countered McCain’s claims as speculative at best, saying his information is simply not accurate and he, as the Arizona senator has done previously, was grandstanding for the media without knowing key facts. “If he (McCain) in fact is being told that information, it is bad information,” a CIA source said …

The CIA sources’ collective assessment that the Washington Post purposely and brutally misrepresented the CIA’s findings is the third blow to the embattled newspaper in the last week, having been busted writing two other high profile fake stories on national security that were quickly proven to be problematic and ultimately bogus. …

“They just make news up, fabricate whatever news was required at the time, especially when they were scooped or embarrassed by other publications,” said Gregg Morris. … Morris worked for Time Magazine, the New York Post, Gannett’s Democrat & Chronicle newspaper in Rochester, NY and Washington Star, … currently an award winning journalism professor at Hunter College in New York City.


Morris has chronicled the decline of the mainstream media, especially the Washington Post, for 30 years … Morris said the Washington Post’s latest foray into make-believe journalism with the CIA Russian story had several glaring inconsistencies that are often hallmarks of fabricated, fake news, …
“There are no sources with direct knowledge, it’s just all hearsay,” Morris said. “Who cares what some partisan Senators or lawmakers say they were told. The Post needs real sources on this. Without CIA sources, this story wouldn’t even make it out of my classroom alive.

“The editors should be fired. If you’re covering national security as a reporter for the Post or New York Times, LA Times, and don’t have CIA sources at your fingertips, find another job.” ... what it has truly uncovered is how the Washington Post itself spreads fakes stories and the outlandish lengths the paper will stretch to defend such problematic pieces of shoddy fiction disguised as objective journalism. And last week The Washington Post’s malfeasance reached epidemic proportions. …

More alarming, however, instead of apologizing for smearing General Flynn or True Pundit — or even simply admit its glaring errors — Washington Post personnel tried to cover up the gaffes. Post personnel edited the online story at least eight separate times throughout the day until its contents no longer resembled the original, fabricated edition. … By Wednesday, the Washington Post was in the news again but this time with a public apology for publishing a Nov. 24th story on fake news which the newspaper was now publicly admitting was likely based on fake sourcing. …

Let’s recap this not-so-epic week in fabricated Washington Post journalism:

Monday: The Post prints a story about fake news attacking General Flynn and True Pundit. That story turned out to be fake.
Wednesday: The Post admits its blockbuster Russian propaganda story on fake news, complete with a libelous blacklist, was indeed based on phony, unknown sourcing. That story? Fake too.
Friday: The Post ends the work week how it started it: publishing another false story, but upping the stakes by misrepresenting the CIA, another work of fiction now proven false by True Pundit.

If the Washington Post had any pride or professionalism left, a big “if” at this point, reporters and editors would be fired after last week’s brutal display of fake news on parade. …

If this is confirmed with named sources, would end up vaildating this news report:

...True Pundit is among the worst offenders of absolute BS news... lol

I don't know anything about TP other than the OP news but hard to imagine such a claim could be true. If you disagree, can you cite anything ever published by TP that could be worse offense than these crooked media outlets when it comes to BS?

- NYT pushed bogus/misleading Iraq WMD narrative day after day, published bogus Iraq Yellow Cake WMD stories to cultivate public opinion for war

- WaPo pushed bogus/misleading Iraq WMD narrative day after day, wrote 27 editorials supporting Iraq invasion
