Murphy says Giuliani Russian asset.

It seems that Democrats now have a standard for dealing with anything that puts their candidates in a bad light — blame Russia.  That’s the case with Sen. Chris Murphy, who is very angry that the media isn’t completely ignoring the Hunter Biden story.

He’s also of the opinion this was all cooked up by the Russians (who happen to be everywhere, you know) who apparently turned Rudy Giuliani into an asset.

We’re not kidding.  The Trump Derangement Syndrome is powerful with this one.

Here’s Murphy’s alleged “thinking” on the subject:

The guy seems kind of paranoid. Do you think that when he goes to sleep at night, Chris Murphy checks under his bed and in the closet for Russkies? Maybe he thinks they are playing with the monsters under his bed that he imagined as a child.

Do you see the trend here?  Something bad about their guy comes out.  Instantly, Facebook and Twitter jump in to provide cover while giving them more excuses to censor conservatives.

Instead of seriously considering the allegations, Democrats immediately jump to “Russia, Russia, Russia.”  Facts be damned.

One person wondered:


No, because Murphy, like the rest of the Democrat-media complex, isn’t interested in the truth.  All they care about is the narrative and hurting Trump.

Here’s a good question:

Because truth doesn’t matter to Murphy or his colleagues on the left.

Then there’s this take:

By the way, we are told the FBI is investigating the emails, but only to see if they are, in fact, Russian disinformation.

The FBI is reportedly investigating whether emails published Wednesday by the New York Post in connection with widely discredited corruption allegations about Hunter Biden are part of a possible Russian effort to spread disinformation ahead of the presidential election.

NBC News first reported the existence of the investigation, followed by the Associated Press and CNN, which cite administration and congressional sources.

The alleged emails came to the Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid through President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who claimed to have acquired a copy of a computer hard drive belonging to the son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The authenticity of the emails has not been independently verified, and reporters pointed out major errors and holes in The Post story after it was published.

But Biden’s campaign hasn’t denied the NY Post story.

In a statement, Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said, “we have reviewed Joe Biden’s official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.”…

Biden’s campaign would not rule out the possibility that the former VP had some kind of informal interaction with Pozharskyi, which wouldn’t appear on Biden’s official schedule. But they said any encounter would have been cursory. Pozharskyi did not respond to a request for comment.
