Professional Clinton-hater Victoria Toensing is ginning up this "FBI-informant" Clinton-Russia story

Toensing and her husband and legal partiner Joseph diGenova have spent decades attacking the Clintons and blathering about them as much as they can to any media outlets that will listen.

Toensing's latest claim that a former FBI informant she's representing was silenced when he tried to bring forward information damaging to the Clintons seems like a replay of what she did -- and the claims she made that were debunked -- during the Benghazi hearings.

Here's Media Matters' page listing its articles on Toensing

including this article from 2013, "Who Are The Right-Wing Media's Benghazi Lawyers Victoria Toensing And Joseph diGenova?":

1. Of course she is. Lying about Clinton and Dems is what she does.

That being said, just keep in mind how fucking liar Joe DiGenova was treated like a paragon of truth and virtue by lots of DU'ers during Primary 2016. Hopefully we won't see a repeat of that now.

3. Fox News "legal expert"

told them a impaneled grand jury was going to indict Clinton any day now. Of course they liked that. They recced it up to the max. Anybody who pushed back on DiGenova and recounted his history was belittled and ridiculed.

I need to take a break from DU. Or get out completely. I get reminded of all this shit that happened that we're now being gaslit about. I should probably just shut up.

9. The Hillary is going to be indited was the best hope that some of the opposition had for their

candidate. But I think the worst of them were trolls.

5. Here's an example:

https://www.democraticunderground.com/1280153524

They're discussing what diGenova said about Clinton on C-SPAN.



I found that sort of thing extremely painful to read.


Anyway, it's important to know who's behind news stories. If they trace back to Toensing and diGenova, they're likely to be partisan, hate-filled BS.

6. Btw, almost all the RW stories about this refer to Toensing's role in the Reagan administration,

skipping over the decades as a professional Clinton-hater. The RW media is trying to make Toensing sound more credible than she is.

8. I really appreciate you giving us a heads-up on Toensing's "silenced FBI-Informant" nonsense.

I wasn't aware of this at all.

Mueller must be getting awfully close to Trump. All of these creeps coming out of the woodwork to distract and deflect.
