Skip to comments.FBI: Lincoln Project Never Trumpers Peddled Iranian Disinformation Meant To Help Biden
Posted on 10/21/2020 7:59:07 PM PDT by RandFan
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe and FBI Director Christopher Wray announced Wednesday that Iran and Russia are working to undermine the integrity of the 2020 election.
We would like to alert the public that we have identified that two foreign actors, Iran and Russia, have taken specific actions to influence public opinion relating to our elections, Ratcliffe said during an evening press conference, following efforts by the intelligence and law enforcement communities to ensure the election is safe and secure.
According to Ratcliffe, Iran and Russia got their hands on U.S. voter registration information, enabling the foreign adversaries to send false information to registered voters as a means to sow chaos and confusion and undermine the publics confidence in Americas electoral process.
To that end, we have already seen Iran send spoofed emails designed to intimidate voters, incite social unrest, and damage President Trump, Ratcliffe said.
The foreign nations arent the only disseminators of false information. American groups including Never Trump operation the Lincoln Project served as Irans American digital foot soldiers, buying into the disinformation and amplifying it.
After the Wednesday press conference, the Lincoln Project deleted its recent tweet, which claimed, The Proud Boys are attempting to scare voters away from the polls.

If I did that I’d expect to pay dearly.
Nothing to see here, of course.
The left is so stupid to believe anything as long as it’s anti Trump and anti American.
I really want to see George Conway pay for his crap.
the minute Fox News leaves Laura Ingraham, Shannon Bream begins with a mention of the Fox Hunter laptop/money-laundering scoop, & says Nunes will be on to discuss, but then she and the rest of Fox talking heads go on and on about the FBI/Iran/Russia “story,” including the “Proud Boys” rubbish, which they deny.
see how they control the narrative across the MSM.
then when they go to the laptop, the Fox guys says Biden is taking A DAY off!!! then has Biden denials/trashes the messengers etc. Jill’s nonsense.
then they finally get to some substance 8 minutes into the program.
Devin Nunes comes on...says it’s been a while since he’s been on with Shannon.
Shannon asks about FBI/Russia/Iran.
then Shannon continues on the same topic.
so much for him coming on to talk about the laptop developments.
12 minutes in, Shannon asks about the FBI laptop money-laundering story.
Nunes asks how come FBI didn’t bring this information about the laptop to Congress or The Senate during the Impeachment etc etc etc etc. such a serious matter, yet
Shannon has no follow-up and the serious business is all done in less than 3 minutes.
Shannon on to muting the Mics.
The Lincoln Project is a collection of extremely bitter and angry Bushie never Trumpers.
Those people are at least as angry at Trump as the most rabid dem partisan.
In fact, most have pledged to vote for Biden. Not only did he defeat Yeb! he told them all to go to hell when they approached him for cabinet positions.
They have lost all influence in DC and they Hate President Trump with White Hot Passion because of that.
Theres another threatening one floating around directed at a Trump supporters threatening to do violence against a Trump supporters, should Trump refuse to step down. A Facebook friend Posted it, I dont have the computer skills to link Facebook here. Apparently has shown up in several states.
It must be pretty pathetic to be a never Trumper, knowing that Trump accomplished so many things they talked about doing for years but never got around to doing.
You can bet that there is a lot of Chinese money flowing into the Biden campaign and the so-called “Lincoln Project’, what a disgraceful bunch.
I'll NEVER vote for anyone involved with the Lincoln Project. They're worse than democrats.
Russian disinformation peddled by anti Trumpers...?
What has changed in the last 4 years?
I’d settle for seeing Rick Wilson curled in the fetal position and crying.
this has a number of towns getting them in the comments:
20 Oct: WMUR: Police investigate threatening letters sent to Trump supporters
I think a lot of people are missing the most important thing about the statement today and the statement the other day about the laptop NOT being Russian disinformation.
Ratliffe is not allowing them to play the DC game of anonymous leaks from “intel sources” to damage Trump. He is getting ahead of disinformation within a day or two and he is blocking this as a viable trick for the media to play.
Notice today, Ratliffe spoke first. He is the DNI. He is arguably taking more control over the “counter-intel” mission of the FBI. The swamp is trying to play swamp games (again), but Ratliffe is signaling that he wlil not allow it. He dragged Wray to this presser today. He has showed him who the boss is. He resoundingly shut Schiff down the other day.
Good on him.
He and Steve Schmidt, the man with a head that looks like a penis, can spoon and cry together.
