Look, we know it’s the National Enquirer, which once ran the headline, “Hillary Clinton Adopts Alien Baby” (insert your own Chelsea joke here).
But the grocery store tabloid has gotten a few big stories right, like former Sen. John Edwards’ secret love child; Jesse Jackson’s illegitimate daughter; Gary Hart’s affair with Donna Rice (who can forget that photo of Rice sitting in the former senator’s lap on Hart’s yacht, aptly named “Monkey Business”).
So, with a few grains of salt, consider the Enquirer’s latest “BOMBSHELL EXCLUSIVE! Hillary Clinton: How She Framed Donald Trump’s Family.”
“Hillary Clinton and a firm with ties to the Democratic party setup President Donald Trump and his family in an attempt to destroy the billionaire businessman and politician according to the National Enquirer,” writes the Daily Mail.
The tabloid magazine, which has made no secret of its pro-Trump agenda, came to this conclusion after what they describe as an ‘exhaustive investigation’ into the matter.
These attempts by ‘evil’ Hillary to bring down her rival included luring Donald Jr. into meeting with shadowy Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskyaya claims the tabloid.
And the firm in the middle of all this is Fusion GPS, according to the tabloid, the same group that allegedly compiled Christopher Steele’s scandalous dossier of claims about President Trump that was published in January.
Fusion GPS previously denied these claims, stating: ‘Fusion GPS learned about this meeting from news reports and had no prior knowledge of it. Any claim that Fusion GPS arranged or facilitated this meeting in any way is absolutely false.’
‘To put it in spy terms it was like a honey trap, Only they weren’t selling sex to Donald Jr. They were selling fictitious dirt of Hillary,’ said former CIA officer Larry C. Johnson.
‘And once they bit on the meeting, they had him right where they wanted him!’
As for why this firm, Fusion GPS, would want to aid in this setup, a congressional source told the tabloid: ‘These guys had a vested personal interest and ideological interest in smearing Trump and boosting Hillary’s chances of winning the White House.’
