Intrepid entrepreneur and seeming free-speech savior Elon Musk once again waded into the fraught political waters of American uniparty schemes, this time calling out failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for her elaborate “campaign hoax” in 2016.
Musk has previously commented on Jeffrey Epstein’s client list, George Soros’ donations, Donald Trump’s Twitter saga, and voting Republican.
Musk was prompted by a Twitter user to discuss Hillary’s involvement in the 2016 insurrection against a populist presidential candidate and eventual presidential winner, as well as how pushing such obvious propaganda will be treated under his ownership. The user asked about the new disinformation policy should he take over the company.
“@elonmusk I have reported this tweet as misleading disinformation to the powers that be at @twitter,” the user began. “I would be interested to know if, when you receive control over the company, anything was done with this at any level. Pls advise soonest.”
Musk responded in kind.
“You are absolutely correct. That tweet is a Clinton campaign hoax for which their campaign lawyer is undergoing a criminal trial,” Musk then linked to a BBC article about the trial of Michael Sussmann, who served as an attorney for the Clinton campaign in 2016.

The tweet in question was from the fruitless October surprise bandied by Clinton and high-level Democrats, including, if reports are to be believed, then-President Barack Obama and heads of various intelligence agencies.
Clinton tweeted in late October of 2016 as a response to Joe Biden’s current National Security Advisor, who was then working on the Clinton campaign.
“Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank.”
Sullivan’s memo read in part:
“This could be the most direct link yet between Donald Trump and Moscow. Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank. This secret hotline may be the key to unlocking the mystery of Trump’s ties to Russia. It certainly seems the Trump Organization felt it had something to hide, given that it apparently took steps to conceal the link when it was discovered by journalists.”

Conservative Brief, commenting on an interview with Donald Trump on Fox News, reacted to the ongoing trial of Clinton lawyer Michael Sussman and the Former President Donald Trump reacted on Saturday to Mook’s testimony, asking specifically how he was supposed to get his reputation back.
“Trump said in an interview with Fox News Digital that the entire Russia investigation is “one of the greatest political scandals in history,” and that he likely will “never” get his “reputation fully back.”
“This is one of the greatest political scandals in history,” Trump told Fox News. “For three years, I had to fight her off, and fight those crooked people off, and you’ll never get your reputation fully back.”
“Where do I get my reputation back?” Trump reiterated.
“I had to fight them off,” Trump said. “And if we had real leadership, instead of people like Mitch McConnell, they would do something about it. And guys like Bill Barr. They would have done something about it.”
The former president also said that the law enforcement and intelligence resources used to investigate the phony allegation during the 2016 campaign distracted them from what “could have been a real danger with Russia.”
