Dem website cites unsourced report by leftist fringe site claiming the entire Weiner sexting deal was a *setup*

Herewith, another example of how the Lying Leftist Media works:  Two days ago a Democrat-fellating website called "The Hill" ran a piece titled

Report: Girl in Weiner sexting case lied to damage Clinton

As of today (two days after it was published) the article has been shared just under 20,000 times, so it's getting lots of traction.  Let's take a look:
The teenage girl who exchanged sexually explicit text messages with former Rep. Anthony Weiner lied about her age and political motivations to harm Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, according to a report by investigative news site WhoWhatWhy.

In a report published Monday, the website said the girl who exchanged the messages with Weiner was closer to 17 and not 15, as initial reports said. That also puts her above the age of consent in North Carolina, which is 16.
 Note the word "report":  The unsourced hit-piece by WhoWhatWhy isn't described as a "story" or an "article" but as a "report."  Makes it sound...official, eh?
In addition, she and her family were also not Clinton supporters, as the girl claimed in a letter published by BuzzFeed, according to social media posts unearthed by the website. The report also says the girl initiated the contact with Weiner.

The website suggests this could mean that Weiner was the target of a politically motivated plot.
“Seeing that Weiner is both a repeat offender and associated with one of the most important people in Clinton’s inner circle, it is conceivable that this was a set-up from the beginning, with the objective of embarrassing the Clinton campaign,” the WhoWhatWhy report reads.

The investigation of Weiner and his accuser led the FBI to announce just weeks before Election Day that it was again looking at Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of State. It did so because it had found a number of Clinton's emails on Weiner's laptop, some of which were forwarded to him from his wife, Human Abedin, a longtime aide to Clinton.

Clinton lost the election, and many in her camp have blamed the FBI and its then-director, James Comey.

Weiner last week pled guilty to a charge of distributing obscene material to a minor, which carries a sentence of up to 10 years in prison.

WhoWhatWhy is a nonprofit investigative reporting site...
Ah, "non-profit"!  Leftists read this as code for "You can trust 'em," cuz everyone on the Left knows wanting to make a profit automatically means you're eeeeeebil.

Wonder what their staff uses to pay their rent and buy food?  Maybe food stamps?  EBT cards?  I doubt it.  There's money here, salaries.  Follow the money and you'll find out who these assholes are working for.  I guarantee they ain't doin' it for free.
...that describes itself as "forensic journalism" that looks to "unearth the facts interested parties want hidden." Its editor-in-chief and CEO is Russ Baker, who has written for The New York Times, The New Yorker and The Washington Post. Baker is also the author of a book called The Family of Secrets, which alleges connections between the Bush family and historic events like Watergate during former President Richard Nixon’s presidency.

The WhoWhatWhy report, citing a court record, says the girl was just shy of 17 when she approached Weiner, and not 15 as The Daily Mail cited when it initially broke the story.
It argues that this "lie" seems "clearly designed to produce the maximum public outrage and put Weiner in greater legal jeopardy."

WhoWhatWhy cites a number of social media messages and photographs to argue that the victim was from a Republican-friendly family and that this suggests a political trick may have been in play. 
It says that the victim celebrated Trump's victory on social media, that her father is a registered Republican and that “her mother tweeted derisively about the Black Lives Matter movement.”
“It’s not yet clear whether the motive was primarily money, a plot to smear Clinton, or both,” the report notes.
So, a major Democrat-supporting organ cites a "report" claiming the whole Weiner/sexting-teen-girl/his-laptop-held-600,000-Hillary-emails thing was a setup, eh?

To say there are several problems with this is a profound understatement.  First it would mean that neither the FBI nor Weiner's pricey law firm bothered to investigate the girl's age back when it could have been used to totally demolish the "underage" charge.  So, Democrats:  Was the FBI part of the plot against Hilly?  Of course since the FBI worked for Trump that would be very plausible...except, oooh, wasn't the Emperor in command of the FBI back then?

Oooh, yeah, dat's right.

Well maybe Loretta Lynch was a secret Trump supporter.  Yeh, dat's it.

Get real.

While Weiner's sexting did get law enforcement involved, what caused Comey to re-open the investigation into Hillary's emails wasn't Weiner sexting a girl he believed was 15.  Instead it was that when the FBI searched his laptop, they reportedly found tens of thousands of emails from Hillary--some of which reportedly contained classified material.

Unless the girl and her handlers had a remarkable level of ESP how would they know there were Hillary emails on the laptop of her estranged husband?  (Recall that all Weiner's "sexting" was done by phone texts.)

So why would leftist Russ Baker be taking the time to run this story now, after the election is long over?  My guess is it's part of the campaign to oust Trump, by peeling away just enough GOP senators to give Dems a shot at removal after the impeachment they're hoping for.

But with all that said, if this was all a superbly intricate plot to sink Hilliary, it's the best news I've heard since election night--because it means Trump has some people working for him who are FAR smarter than any of the media ever thought.
