Response to Iliyah (Reply #3)

4. Its less about lying than it is about keeping an issue alive that fires up the Republican base.

I suspect most Republicans in DC know there is no case for linking Clinton to the Russsians via Uranium One or Ukraine or whatever. However, the Republican base is angry about it because right wing media is pressing the baseless conspiracy theories as a way to distract from the 45-Russia investigations. As we have seen time and again, the right wing base drives the media narrative far more than the left wing base drives it.
