The last sentence of yesterday’s post began with “déjà-vu, perhaps” and, with the Guardian stating “British intelligence reportedly provided a vital tipoff to the US in 2015 about the extent of Russian hacking on the presidential election” , that might be an appropriate way to start of this short post.
“Allegations about the depth and nature of contacts between the Trump camp and Moscow have been passed to the FBI”, we are told, and, with Trump afterwards still saying “no evidence that foreign interference had influenced the outcome of the election” , caution at least must be advised when it comes to believing what is in essence unsubstantiated evidence.
Oh, and the “déjà-vu”? Well, is it really so long ago that key intelligence “based on fabrication, wishful thinking and lies” was provided by Britain and was used to justify an illegal war. The neo-cons have their agenda and it might be suspected that they will have their next war by hook or by crook, even if that means a full confrontation with a revisionist, right-wing president.
