Alleged SETH RICH conspiracy source is UFO/cataclysm website that warns of ‘Nordic aliens invading Texas’

Intellectual fraud has been the hallmark of Russiagate since Hillary Clinton first blamed Russia for her loss to Donald Trump.

An essay published in Politico by former Clinton campaign spokesman Jesse Ferguson describes how the Democratic Party plans to win following the 2016 debacle: move rightward toward Romney Democrats.
