Are we seeing a pattern here yet, liberal media? Are we starting to get it when it comes to Russia? No. You people are still a bunch of insufferable morons on this stuff. For years, you thought the Trump campaign and the Kremlin colluded during the 2016 election, despite there being zero evidence to back up that allegation. It was a myth. It was a hoax. It was based on a shoddy piece of political opposition research funded by the Clinton campaign that was exposed as bunk not by one, but two reports. Ex-Special Counsel Robert Mueller trashed it as did the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Still, the Left has been consumed by Russophobia. Collusion delusion is still a thing, but now the shots are being fired inside the ship. U.S. officials informed Sen. Bernie Sanders, the frontrunner for the 2020 Democratic nomination, that the Russians are trying to help his campaign (via WaPo):

U.S. officials have told Sen. Bernie Sanders that Russia is attempting to help his presidential campaign as part of an effort to interfere with the Democratic contest, according to people familiar with the matter.

President Trump and lawmakers on Capitol Hill have also been informed about the Russian assistance to the Vermont senator, according to people familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence.

It is not clear what form that Russian assistance has taken. U.S. prosecutors found a Russian effort in 2016 to use social media to boost Sanders campaign against Hillary Clinton, part of a broader effort to hurt Clinton, sow dissension in the American electorate and ultimately help elect Donald Trump.

“I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president,” Sanders said in a statement to The Washington Post. “My message to Putin is clear: stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.

That’s it. Based on the Left’s rules on this nonsense, Bernie is a Russian agent. His trips to the USSR in the past were really meetings with his KGB handlers. He’s now a U.S. Senator. It’s the Manchurian Candidate. The Kremlin is taking over. Panic! Panic! It’s time to impeach Bernie Sanders to figure out what the hell is going on—we can’t trust him with these Russian ties, right? These are the Lefts rules. We didn’t write them. Bernie Sanders is now a Russian agent based on the liberal media’s criterion for who is really a traitor. Forget Jill Stein, it was Bernie!

Of course, I'm being facetious, but this is how insane this Russian stuff has become since 2016.

UPDATE: Oh, Bernie knew about this...a month ago
