CNN drove the final nail in their coffin with this fake news story about Russia

CNN’s anti-Trump crusade just came back to bite them.

The network celebrated what they thought was the smoking gun that proved Trump colluded with Russia.

But it ended up being the final nail in their coffin.

CNN led 4 hours of program with a supposed bombshell story.



The network claimed two sources informed them that Donald Trump, Jr. received an email on September 4th from someone named Mike Erickson providing a link and encryption key.

CNN promoted this as a bombshell with top of the hour coverage throughout the morning because it appeared to them as evidence a mole provided the Trump team advanced knowledge of hacked Clinton emails.

But within hours the story crumbled.

The date of the email sent to Trump Jr. was September 14th.

That was a pivotal detail as WikiLeaks tweeted out the link to the emails and the encryption key on September 13th.

All the Trump team was sent was a link to publically available information.

This was hardly master espionage.

Erickson was also a Trump supporter who had previously donated $40 to the campaign.



The Daily Caller reports:

“But a copy of the email provided to The Daily Caller shows that Erickson sent the email on Sept. 14.

That date is significant because WikiLeaks had released a batch of stolen documents on Sept. 13. The group touted its release of the DNC documents, which were published by Guccifer 2.0.

The email shows that Erickson messaged Trump Jr. stating that “Wikileaks has uploaded another (huge 678 mb) archive of files from the DNC.”

“It is too big for me to send you by e-mail attachments, but you can download it yourselves,” he added, providing a link to the same website cited by Wikileaks the day before.

  1. Proves some people will say and print anything, and we allow it!!! After more than 18 months CNN still does not get it, or, does not want to. Their moto: no facts, no truth, our kind of story (and really news worthy if makes President Donald Trump look bad). Journalism today is the communist best friend; liberal left propagandist rags. And, to be fair, where was this great news coverage during Obama’s Era of wrong doing???? Maybe would not be in this continuing witch hunt (s) today.

  2. CNN is overdue for shutting down after dipping the public with their rotten lies. They need to shut the EF up and get out of town. They must be banned from hiding in the WDC Swampland. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!

  3. Once long, long ago on a planet called earth I trusted CNN. Over the years I discovered CNN lied, manipulated the news. I refuse to watch them now and will not watch them until they
    right their errors, apologize to Trump and Americans who supported him continue to support him. Sad the company cannot be sued for libel nor slander.

  4. All this bull they keep telling surely somebody can get them for slander, or something. They just out right lied, and for all those people who think the President is wrong, and should resign can kiss between my back pockets. CNN was started by Ted Turner back in the late 90’s what has happened since then is anybody guess.

    • I just knew that something irrational was occurring. Something crazy, insane and, well, just plain stupid! But it was all made clear when I learned that the main CNN investigative reporters were being supervised by three men named Larry, Moe and Curly.

      • U got that right they are The Three Stooges and all three of them should be fired for lying to the public instead of just telling the plain truth kick them to the curb just like We the People kicked Hillary to the curb hell yeah

  5. Must be this Dee person is abbr. for Democrat Elitist Echo of Liberals bias. I feel sorry for you too. But everyone does have a right to an opinion.

  6. IF ITS A BEAUTIFUL DAY OUT AND CNN SAYS THAT THE SUN IS IN THE SKY YOU BETTER FO CHECK TO MAKE SURE..THEY ARE PROBABLY FULL OF SHIT..CNN IS PEEING ON EVERYONES LEGS AND ARE TELLING YOU THAT ITS RAINING OUT.

  7. CNN and all of the leftist liberal lying media need to be jerked up by the straps on their collective rears and censored for the false news they produce. If the FCC does not jerk their licenses then the FCC needs to be jerked. The whole thing is so far fetched that not even the most noted fable tellers could recognize the truth if it was written on the screen before their warped eyes. Of course a person who is pure at heart can tell when they are lying – their lips are moving. If the FCC does nothing to end this madness then Congress needs to quit funding that organization. Simple corrective measures are out there – tell the truth or do not print, tell, or put into the general public that information or story that is not. Geesch, and most of these clowns took journalism in college, that is the reason. They learned it, so now we have to take the liberals out of the colleges. Wow, a long way around the barn to get to the out house!

    • CNN is fake news NOT

      I learn more from tump fake news. I hear what tump says, flip it and learn the truth. In other words, what tump says is the opposite of the truth. And yet readers believe tump because he says it.

      I remember Kelley Ann the day after the Inaguration telling us we needed to accept “ALTERNATIVE NEWS”; the moderator called it what it was, untruths. We are asked to ignore what we see with our own eyes and hear with our own ears. Me, I remember my history of Hitler taking control of Germany and writings like 1984.

      Not ALL we know can be false. Tump wants us to believe it is all false. Do you really believe all tump says?

      • You’ve obviously been sippin’ too much of that Obummer Koooolaid. How’s that “hope” and “change” workin’ out for you, Hon? Are your welfare checks a little bigger now?

        • Obviously, this person has listened to the INTERPRETATION of what “tump” has said as done by CNN, MSNBC, etc., etc. rather than the words he spoke directly from his lips. This is what a no-information liberal DOES. To come up with an approximation of the truth, take whatever these media talking-heads say and HEAR exactly the opposite of their “interpretations”.

  8. CNN is a far-left organ of the Communist Party USA. This former refugee from a communist hell easily recognizes all their tricks and lies.

  9. CNN as does not care about truth. Just as the rest of the “media”. Once the faux story is out… CNN is NOT responsibile. They have accomplished what they wanted to do. Throw slime.

  10. They need to start be responsible for this fake news people need fired for putting this crap out there is it any wonder people don’t believe anything they say!? Enough of this don’t they even have sources anymore don’t they investigate these things anymore or are they just strictly propaganda?! They are nothing but opinions like the women on the view! Nothing more nothing less! Pure FAKE NEWS!! FAKE NEWS!!

    • Nothing will change because it will make no difference to CNN’s brain dead followers. They will believe ANYTHING anti Trump because they want to.

    • Do your own research and answer your own questions.

      There is lots of false understanding on most of the comments

      It has never been truer than today: “WE HAVE MET THE ENEMY AND IT IS US” Pogo

    • Dear David, I agree except that I quit long before you. No rotting flesh, just bones and cartiledge left here. It’s been at least 15 years since I watched their shit!

  11. CNN has NOT been a News Media for quite a long time…..as well as some others. I can still remember when the news reported the news instead of giving their opinion. I no longer watch them. I watch only my local news…which still report the news.

    • CNN should consider starting a fishing tour on the Atlantic coast. They could sell franchises, and suggest to owners “how to catch fish “.
      They would certainly also know ALL the bait to use, how to put the bait on the hook, and then throw into the water. I am sure some amazing fish might be caught. They know NOTHING about factual
      “news reporting “….so….fishing might be their game !! good luck

  12. It should be obvious to all readers/listeners by now that this type irresponsible reporting will continue until a penalty for this type misinformation is developed AND that penalty is a greater cost than the perceived benefit this inaccurate reporting gives the news media.

    • The press provides the news. How we understand the news is due to our bias. What is your bias? If you are a thinking human you have a bias.

      • THE PRESS DOES NOT REPORT THE NEWS,MOST OF THEM ARE REPORTING THEIR OPINIONS AND FALSE STORIES TO PROP UP THEIR LIBERAL HERO OF CHOICE..I DO FEEL BAD FOR U THO DEE.YOU HAVE THE DISEASE AND THERE IS NO KNOWN CURE

  13. I’m not surprised. Is anyone really surprised that a FAKE news station has stooped low and lied … again… just to come up with false hopes for Libturds? Just another day for them. They’ll try again tomorrow, with the same results. You might ask, “When will they ever learn?” but the fact is that they’re so STUPID that they are unable to learn. They still have their heads up Obama’s ass.

  14. The usual Democratic Party espionage and lies, and of course massive corruption! Put Hillary Clinton in jail, R move Barack Obama’s pension to nothing, take back much of the money he stole!

    • What is the basis of your comment. Even non-fake news should have support documents. Look for them. Tump went looking for supporting documents for his position and finally had to admit OBAMA was born in a state of the USA, Hawaii Documents supporting the news are available. Look for the documents and non-alternative facts to prove or support your beliefs. This site is not a source.

      • NON FAKE NEWS IS SUPPORTED BY DOCUMENTATION AND OTHER PROOF..RHATS WHY IT IS NON FAKE NEWS..DOPE..OOPS SORRY.YOU WOULDNT KNOW THAT..YOU OBVIOUSLY DONT READ”NON FAKE NEWS”

      • I don’t think Trump ever actually “admitted” that Obama was born in one of the states. He merely put his request for convincing proof of that alleged “fact” on the back burner because he had more pressing matters to address,
        ….like running the country.

  15. CNN = Clinton News Network = Communist News Network. CNN is everything that is wrong with reporting and reporters.
    Is CNN fake news? YES, How could any reasonable person think not.

      • Let’s see minimum wage, safe work environments, safe cars, cleaner air, parks ….which LIBTURD accomplishment do you want to give up. Add SOCIAL SECURITY and MEDICARE which is so LIBTURD, Ryan and tump want to get rid of it next year. Is this fake news?

        • You’re obviously out of ideas how to trash our President TRUMP. The last name “Trump” really bothers you, doesn’t it? You’ve been making the same stupid mistake over and over by misspelling it. At least when Obozo gets a nickname, like O’bummer, it’s at least mostly accurate… but “tump?” You sound like a mentally handicapped person.

          • Not mentally challenged. It is just an abbreviation that is not a false disrespectful name like obozzo.

            Or o’bummer. Mentally challenged is one who uses insulting names based on alternative facts, a Trump position as stated by his government representative the day after the Inaguration. But I imagine you missed that news clip while you focused on petty trump position that the mall was packed.

            More women marched in DC the next week than attended the trump Inaguration. Prove we wrong with accepted sources of news not linked to trump. It should be there.

            But I doubt you will do it. Truth hurts. So do alternative facts.

        • DO U MEAN THE SAFE WORK ENVIRONMENTS WHERE ALL THESE WOMEN ARE BEING SEXUALLY HARASSED BY ALL THESE OLD PERVERTED LIBERALS?OR THE SAFE PARKS U MENTION?THE SAME PARKS WHERE BLACK INNER CITY FOLKS CSNT TAKE THEIR KIDS ANYMORE BECAUSE THE PARKS ARE LOADED WITH THOUSANDS OF DISCARDED NEEDLES THAT THE LIBERALS PASS OUT FREELY TO DRUG ADDICTS?U HAVE NEEN INFECTED..SEEK HELP
