Savage told that 4chan created the dossier that Buzzfeed published on Tuesday
Thursday on WWBA 820 AM the Michael Savage’s radio show there was a caller who was claiming to represent the Internet forum 4chan. the called who called himself “John,” insisted his site was the origin of the fictional 35 page dossier painting a very salacious story about President-elect Donald Trump and reported in detail by BuzzFeed on Tuesday.
The story was based on a dossier of memos, reportedly prepared by a former British intelligence operative, has been floating around political and media circles in Washington for months. The story was so outrageous that no legitimate news operation was willing to print it or broadcast the findings.
A caller called “John, told Savage “We expected some garbage outfit like BuzzFeed to pick it up, or maybe the New York Times. We didn’t expect government entities to take interest in our fan-fiction.”
According to Savage, 4chan’s claim is that the phony story was sent to veteran Republican strategist Rick Wilson, a supporter of the presidential campaign of former CIA officer Evan McMullin, who then put it in the hands of the CIA.
Also according to Savage, Wilson has vehemently denied the 4chan claim, both on Twitter and Medium.
“If you believe the Russian/4chan spin that this information came from them, you can’t use a calendar, or common sense. This information on Trump’s various personal and business dealings in Russia was being pursued by major campaigns and by major media to my knowledge as early as late July of 2015, and the ‘Ritz Carlton’ information was out in the summer of 2016,” he said in a Medium post.
“The allegations I ‘took the memo to the CIA’ (or caused others to do the same) are utterly, entirely, and profoundly false and risible.”
The same thing that “Rick,” said on The Michael Savage Show, were reported this week in the prestigious U.K. newspaper The Daily Mail. The London based paper attempted to source the 4chan story to no avail at least as of now.
Again, for the record The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and a number of news outlets passed on the story that Buzzfeed published. It was also not used by the Hillary Clinton campaign when the information ws offered to them.
Meanwhile, even the two highest ranking Democrats in the country don’t believe what the Buzzfeed report and the dossier reported.
Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday said he and President Obama were briefed on memos containing damaging but unverified allegations about President-elect Trump because intelligence officials were afraid the information would leak.
Biden on Thursday said intelligence officials told him and Obama – whom the VP said wanted to know why the information was relevant – that they didn’t want the president to be caught off-guard if the information surfaced. Ultimately it did, with the dossier’s contents published by BuzzFeed on Tuesday.
“Well, we feel obliged to tell you, Mr. President, because you may hear about it,” Biden said the intelligence officials told him and Obama. He also said they drew no conclusions.
“I think it’s something that obviously the agency thinks they have to track down,” Biden told reporters. He added later, “It surprised me in that it made it to the point where the agency, the FBI thought they had to pursue it.”
