If you want to throw suspicion off of your self and onto someone else, what would be the best way of doing it? Of course its to blame the other party for the same or worst thing that you are trying to cover up.
The 2016 election is the perfect example of this type of deception. Hillary made so many mistakes that she surely would have faced jail time, along with her other campaign staff, and possible going even as high as Obama. That they had to shift the focus from them to something or someone else. With the media’s help they most likely deliberately, concocted the Russia collusion scandal. For 2 years the Democrats have pushed this narrative to the point that it was 24 hours a day news. They created a special counsel to investigate it, and tried their best to convince the American people that President Trump with the help of the Russians stole the election.
