Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been eerily silent on failed presidential candidate and smear merchant extraordinaire Hillary Clinton but he just broke his silence on her latest scandal.
Jim Jordan said on Twitter: “ Christopher Steele created the dossier. Glenn Simpson sold it to the press. Michael Sussman took it to the FBI. And Democrats and the media lied to you about it all.”
Enter Elon Musk who responded to the GOP Rep with: “All true. Bet most people still don’t know that a Clinton campaign lawyer, using campaign funds, created an elaborate hoax about Trump and Russia.”
He added, “Makes you wonder what else is fake.”
Musk linked to a BBC article titled:
“Clinton lawyer lied to manipulate FBI over Trump.”
Former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook testified under oath today that Hillary was consulted before they pushed the fake story in the press.
And that she approved it.

Mook also admitted the campaign was not totally confident the data was accurate.
“I discussed it with Hillary as well,” said Mook. “I don’t remember the substance of the conversation, but notionally, the discussion was, hey, we have this and we want to share it with a reporter.”
When asked how Clinton responded, Mook said: “She agreed to that.”
“A reporter could vet the information and then decide to print it,” he said.
From Fox News:
Sussmann has been charged with making a false statement to the FBI when he told Baker in September 2016, less than two months before the presidential election, that he was not doing work “for any client” when he requested and attended a meeting in which he presented “purported data and ‘white papers’ that allegedly demonstrated a covert communicates channel” between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank, which has ties to the Kremlin.
Durham’s team alleges Sussmann was, in fact, doing work for two clients: the Hillary Clinton campaign and a technology executive, Rodney Joffe.
Following the meeting with Baker, Sussmann billed the Hillary Clinton campaign for his work.
Sussmann has pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Mook, earlier in questioning from the defense, was asked whether he or anyone on the Clinton campaign approved or gave Sussmann permission to bring the allegations to the FBI, to which he said: “No.”

Glenn Simpson sold it to the press.
Michael Sussman took it to the FBI.
And Democrats and the media lied to you about it all.
