RNC Member: DNC Hack Controversy Is ‘False Flag’ To Make Trump Look Bad!

Dr. Ada Fisher, a member of the Republican National Committee representing North Carolina, has an interesting theory about the hack of Democratic National Committee emails.

At Trump’s rally in North Carolina on Tuesday, Fisher told The Guardian that the controversy over the DNC hack is “a false flag to cover up [Clinton]’s transgressions” and “probably the biggest lie I’ve seen.”

Since emails from DNC staffers were published by Wikileaks last weak, U.S. officials have begun investigating whether Russian hackers were responsible for the leak.

Questions about Russia’s involvement and its potential interest in influencing the 2016 election have put the Donald Trump campaign on the defensive. During a Wednesday morning interview on CBS’ “This Morning,” Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort said that questions about Russia’s involvement in the hack are “an absurd attempt by the Clinton campaign to try to get the focus off of” Clinton’s private email server.

TPM readers may remember Fisher from her 2006 run for Congress, after which it was revealed that BMW Direct, the political firm in charge of her fundraising, kept most of the money it raised for the firm’s own expenses.

    Ada, Ada Ada, The Democrats don’t need to run false flags to make Trump look bad, he manages to look bad without any help from us.

  2. Trust me dipshit, we don’t have to do ANYTHING to “Make Trump Look Bad”.
    He takes care of that all by himself daily.
    So do his clueless sycophants.

    You need a new eyeglass prescription. He doesn’t need help to look bad.

  4. If Dr. Fisher supports Trump and this “false flag” is the biggest lie she’s ever seen, she should think about getting thicker glasses.

  5. This is the current position of many disgruntled Bernibots…they claim that it’s a red herring to keep people from looking into the DNC email “scandal”
