Does anyone here still folllow Debbie Lusignan the Sane Progressive?

I always thought she was a Russian troll.

Debbie Lusignan? @saneprogressive

Repeat a lie often and big enough...and it becomes the truth. The fact that ANYONE believes the Russia fairytale is based on this premise:

2017 Lie of the Year Readers’ Poll results

By Angie Drobnic Holan on Tuesday, December 12th, 2017 at 6:30 a.m.

President Donald Trump calling "the Russia thing" a "made-up story" has overwhelmingly won the reader competition for most significant falsehood of 2017. It is the same falsehood selected by PolitiFact for Lie of the Year.

2017 Lie of the Year: Russian election interference is a 'made-up story'

By Angie Drobnic Holan on Tuesday, December 12th, 2017 at 6:30 a.m.

A mountain of evidence points to a single fact: Russia meddled in the U.S. presidential election of 2016.

In both classified and public reports, U.S. intelligence agencies have said Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered actions to interfere with the election. Those actions included the cyber-theft of private data, the placement of propaganda against particular candidates, and an overall effort to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process.

Members of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, have held open and closed door hearings to probe Russia’s actions. The congressional investigations are ongoing.

Facebook, Google and Twitter have investigated their own networks, and their executives have concluded — in some cases after initial foot-dragging — that Russia used the online platforms in attempts to influence the election.

After all this, one man keeps saying it didn’t even happen.

"This Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story. It's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should've won," said President Donald Trump in an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt in May.
