White House press secretary Jen Psaki once again tried to propagate the conspiracy theory that Russia was involved in manipulating the results of the 2016 presidential election.
On the famous Chinese app, TikTok, she stated Russia “hacked” the elections, thus contributing to Hillary Clinton’s loss.
Psaki Continues her Smear Campaign Against Trump
Over time, Democrats have accused former President Trump of undermining the integrity of the US electoral system, as he questioned the results of the 2020 presidential elections.
However, Democrats have been consistent in denouncing the results of the 2016 elections themselves.
While she was briefing TikTok influencers about the persisting geopolitical crisis triggered by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Psaki emphasized the United States has been tackling pervasive disinformation campaigns using “truth.”
Jen Psaki tells the Tik-Tok influencers in her briefing that Russia "of course hacked our election here" in 2016.

According to her, the White House managed to declassify a lot of information in recent times, which is helping the country in busting fake news.
Following these claims, Psaki made a weird analogy of the persisting crisis with the 2016 presidential election.
She expressed the United States neither declassified information in 2014’s Russian invasion of Ukraine, nor in the 2016 presidential election when Russia “hacked our elections.”
While the Russian government was found stealing emails from some Democratic officials, as per the latest reports, there is no evidence to date that Putin managed to spin 2016 election results.
An official of the National Security Council joined the press secretary on call and further touted declassifying information.
Thus, the official noted the White House has more credibility, as it predicted the Russian invasion of Ukraine correctly.
It is pertinent to note here the Russian invasion of Ukraine became inevitable when subsequent satellite images showed the country amassed mighty troops at the border.
However, as the Biden administration took credit for predicting the invasion, the official continued, Russia took every step predicted by the White House.
Likewise, according to the official, the policies of the Biden administration minimized the credibility of Russian disinformation campaigns.
However, the official noted, the White House is still trying hard to dismantle the prevailing crisis of disinformation campaigns.
All 2016 Investigations Ended in Trump’s Favor
Democrats launched a smear campaign against Trump right after the results of the 2016 presidential election, which has continued to date.
However, subsequent investigations found no proof of any irregularity regarding foreign intervention in American elections.
For instance, Muller investigations found no evidence the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the elections.
Anyone know if the tax payers can sue Hillary for the cost of the Muller investigation? https://t.co/IycM9wfykz

Similarly, the ongoing Durham probe found Hillary Clinton launched a purposeful campaign against Trump and collaborated with conspirators in her bid to destroy Trump’s reputation.
Former Attorney General Bill Bar noted neither Democrats, nor the liberal media, could accept the truth that the scandal against Trump was false and used in a partisan manner.
