Taibbi: Hillary Clinton should be ‘banned from Twitter’ as Sussman Trial proves she perpetrated ‘massive fraud’

Former Rolling Stone reporter Matt Taibbi addressed an obvious question on Friday in his Substack article, “Shouldn’t Hillary Clinton Be Banned From Twitter Now?” in response to discoveries from the ongoing Michael Sussman prosecution.

In her post, Taibbi questioned why the fact that Clinton helped start the media’s Russia collusion myth isn’t making more headlines.

The piece also includes a video compilation of how often the media repeated Clinton’s anti-Trump, anti-Russia talking points.

“Prosecutor Andrew DeFilippis asked ex-campaign manager Robby Mook about the decision to share a bogus story about Donald Trump and Russia’s Alfa Bank with a reporter during the trial of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann last week. Mook answered by giving up his one-time boss” at the beginning of the piece.

“‘I discussed it with Hillary,’ he claimed, explaining his pitch to her: ‘Hey, you know, we have this, and we want to share it with a reporter… She agreed,'” Taibbi went on to say, quoting Mook.

The reporter went into detail on how this revelation was a blip on the mainstream media’s radar, adding, “This would have been a huge story in a country with a functioning media system.”

“Obviously, this isn’t Watergate; Hillary Clinton was never president, and Sussmann’s trial doesn’t equate to prosecutions of people like Chuck Colson or Gordon Liddy. But, as we’ve slowly learned over the years, Russiagate was a massive public-relations fraud,” the reporter concluded.

Taibbi said, referring to Clinton’s effort to derail Trump’s 2016 political prospects, “Mook’s testimony added a substantial piece of the picture, implicating one of the country’s most prominent politicians in one of the more ambitious disinformation campaigns we’ve seen.”

After that, Taibbi explained why this story isn’t getting more attention, despite the fact that it deserves it. “There are two reasons the Clinton story isn’t a bigger one in the public consciousness.”

“One is admitting the enormity of what took place would require system-wide admissions by the FBI, the CIA, and, as Matt Orfalea’s damning video above shows, virtually every major news media organization in America,” He asserted.
