(Whew! This has been quite a week here in the Spruce Tunnel with deep, dark, dire postings – and maybe more to come. But time out now for a little humor . . .)
So I thought I would offer this official government memo to help those who are still looking for any “reports” of Russian influence on the outcome of American elections.
“An agency subject to the provisions of the Federal Reports Act may enter into an arrangement with an organization not subject to the Act whereby the organization not subject to the Act collects information on behalf of the agency subject to the Act. The reverse is also true.” *
Or these people could just stop their fruitless quest and accept the numerous and consistent denials from government agencies that there is no evidence of Russian influence.
Or, did Russia successfully deliver votes on behalf of one candidate or the other? Well, on the liberal West Coast and on the liberal East Coast, Mrs. Clinton seems to have received millions more votes. Certain people could turn their questing to that issue.
Maybe that government memo can be of help!
.* A memo from the Office of Management and Budget, ca 1993, quoted in the little book called: “The 776 Stupidest Things Ever Said.“
(You may be hearing from that book again, from time to time.
