Media gins up Russiagate scandal in FL.. It’s even more dishonest this time around

The media is currently facing a reckoning for their role in propagating the Russiagate scandal while ignoring the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop.

E-mails and texts from Hunter’s laptop revealed that he likely engaged in foreign influence peddling for various clients, including Chinese state-owned businesses.  The media refused to report on that, and the story was censored on social media.

The media tirelessly reported on President Trump’s connections to Russia, much of which has now been proven false in light of the Durham probe and Congressional investigations into the origins of the Russiagate scandal.

Undeterred, the media is now redbaiting in Florida after it was revealed yesterday that DeSantis Press Secretary Christina Pushaw worked with the President of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili, from 2018 to 2020.

The Florida-based Tallahassee Democrat made a not-so-subtle nod to Russiagate by saying that Pushaw registered as a foreign agent for a ‘Former Soviet Republic.’

Florida Politics dishonestly claimed that Pushaw was registered as a foreign agent for a ‘Russian politician’ in a political cartoon.

Democratic politicians and operatives immediately took to social media to open a new chapter of the Russiagate scandal.

Florida State Representative Andrew Learned, D-Brandon, took to Twitter to speculate that Pushaw’s gig with Saakashvili explains why Florida hasn’t divested from Russia.

Another Twitter user created a 29 part thread attempting to tie Pushaw to Russia.  It reads like something that someone suffering from a schizophrenic episode would write.

The issue, of course, is that Pushaw’s employer, President Mikheil Saakashvili, was staunchly opposed to Russian influence in the country and is currently rotting in jail in Georgia for opposing Russian interests.  He was a close ally of President Zelensky in Ukraine.

Saakashvili was also the president of Georgia when Russia invaded the country in 2008.  He was a product of the Georgian Rose Revolution, where pro-Russian forces were toppled by protesters and Saakashvili became President. He consistently opposed Russian influence over the country and moved it closer to being a pro-western liberal democracy.

In many ways, Saakashvili sounds a lot like President Zelensky, who liberals and conservatives alike have come to admire for his brave stand against the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

It’s clear that the liberal media’s attempt to tie Pushaw to Russiagate is nonsensical.  Governor DeSantis aptly explained why he is indifferent to the smear attempt, saying that if his Press Secretary is being attacked by the Washington Post, she must be doing something right.
