Are online Trump supporters really at it?
Not the slightest idea as to what FP is, but it’s Wikileaks that has now placed 3,630 Fillon-related documents on its Twitter site.
Is Wikileaks a Putinesque Russian mouthpiece? Maybe naively, I still find that very difficult to credit at all. Though Wikileaks apparent inability (disinterest? unwillingness?) to produce anything critical of Russia merely adds to suspicion. For me, Wikileaks’ constant reminders of the need for a continuing debate about how ‘our side’ behaves allows me to forgive a lot … even if the Wikipedia-Podesta email dump will have certainly contributed to Trump’s election.
Has this public humiliation of Fillon been organised by ‘their side’? Fillon is, for what little it’s now worth, an articulate and public Putin ‘supporter’. Are ‘they’ now pursuing a strategy of getting Le Pen elected – the favourite candidate by far for under-35 voters with one-third supporting her – so that Armageddon should follow? The Russian Connection is already well established in relation to the FN’s finances, as is their support for Putin’s political line.
