The Russian radio pranksters who tricked Democrat Representatives Adam Schiff and Maxine Waters to solicit possible interference in the 2020 presidential election with bogus dirt on President Trump made it a hat trick this week.
This time, Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexei Stolyarov and a woman sidekick fooled Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders with the same ruse that worked on Waters: a call with “Greta Thunberg” and her father, “Svante.”
Sanders caught on to the pair when they suggested that he was a sleeper KGB agent, but not before the apologist for communist mass murderers invited them to help his campaign.
Soliciting foreign interference in the 2020 election was the Democrats’ charge against Trump during their failed impeachment.
The call opened innocently enough, with Sanders’ slathering on a thick pat of butter. “I just wanted to congratulate you on the extraordinary role you are playing in rallying young people and people throughout the world on this terrible, terrible crisis of climate change,” he said.
Then came “Greta’s” offer to help Sanders against Trump: “We would like to help you, in your campaign in some way, what is the best thing to do?”
Sanders, who can’t decide whether the world will end in 12 years or 50, leapt at the bait like a starving prisoner in the gulag diving for a bowl of borscht.
Well if you would like to help in our campaign that would be wonderful, and we would be very appreciative, because you have generated so much excitement among young people and all people throughout the world. You are admired very, very much.
Like the leftist media, Sanders apparently thinks the real Greta is a world-class climatologist despite her being just 16 years old, but anyway, after finding out that “Greta” and her father” will be in Washington, D.C., this month, Sanders continued: “Well, that’d be great, but if you wanted to make a statement in support of our plan and my candidacy, I would be very appreciative,” Sanders says.
“Of course, of course,” the girl’s “father” says, “we can do it.”
OK. That would be wonderful. We would appreciate that very much. What I would love to do, we can bring some folks together with you, and we can have a wonderful meeting if that’s something you are interested in.
A few minutes later, Sanders’ dream of bringing in foreign assistance for his campaign went up in smoke.
The pair brought up Sanders’ honeymoon in Soviet Russia in 1988, and said the KGB programmed him as a sleeper agent to be awakened at the right time — in this case, a run for the presidency.
“Your memory was erased so the CIA wouldn’t track you down,” “Greta” says. “You become [sic] a sleeper agent of the KGB, yes. Now it’s time to wake up and fulfill your mission: become president of the United States, build communism in the United States, and work for Russia. I will tell you the code phrase and you will remember.”
The two also explained that Russian hackers would ensure his victory, at which point, the poor old fellow hung up the phone.
Sanders isn’t the first Democrat on Capitol Hill to solicit foreign interference in the 2020 election by falling for what amounts to a sting operation.
A few weeks ago, The New American reported that “Greta” and her father convinced Waters they had recorded Trump’s admission that he wanted Ukraine’s help to defeat Joe Biden, whereupon she solicited a visit to Washington.
“Greta” even had “Auntie Maxine” believing that Trump made her cry when they met at the United Nations. “Greta” told the easily fooled congresswoman that Trump said he “wanted to push the Ukraine president to put my competitor on trial. And he will go to trial with you, with your bunch of ecology and Democrats. I would have a separate cage for all of you.”
“I was crying,” she said.
Replied Waters, “Oh, my God. Did you cry?”
That’s when Waters invited “Greta” and her “father” to Washington, D.C., for a meeting, most likely to collect dirt on Trump that could tip the 2020 election to the Democrat candidate or, even better, provide evidence for Trump’s impeachment.
“So, you have … compromising material on Mr. Trump?” the credulous congressman asked.
“Absolutely,” came the reply.
Schiff promised to bring in the FBI. That, too, presumably, would have helped a Democrat win in 2020.
Democrats have not announced plans to investigate whether Sanders, Waters, and Schiff attempted to solicit foreign interference to bring down Trump.
