This is a perfect example of where the liberal media is right now.
They have no facts and they live in a fantasy world with no relation to reality whatsoever.
No, Louise Mensch, Steve Bannon will NOT receive the “death penalty” and your “sources” are a complete joke.
I wonder if the NY Times is proud of their contributor.
New York Times contributor Louise Mensch claims that the death penalty is being considered for Steve Bannon on charges of treason in the latest example of Trump Derangement Syndrome run rampant.
“My sources say the death penalty, for espionage, being considered for @StevenKBannon. I am pro-life and take no pleasure in reporting this,” Mensch tweeted today.
Despite facing immediate ridicule for the claim, Mensch doubled down, asserting that the death penalty was also “being considered for others. Guiliani begged for a deal and was told to pound sand. He sang completely for “consideration” at sentencing.”
“Louise Mensch is obviously beyond parody, but her Russia conspiracy worldview is only one or two steps removed from your average Democrat,” tweeted journalist Michael Tracey in response.
Glenn Greenwald highlighted how Mensch’s “journalism” has previously been praised by CNN contributor Donna Brazile, MSNBC host Joy Reid, and Harvard professor Laurence Tribe.
Mensch, who was given the platform of an NY Times op-ed column earlier this year to rant about Russian collusion conspiracy theories, has repeatedly published outlandish claims yet is still treated seriously by the ‘Never Trump’ crowd and segments of the mainstream media.
The former Conservative MP has previously claimed, with zero evidence, that Vladimir Putin ordered Andrew Breitbart’s murder so Bannon could replace him as chief executive at the right-wing news outlet.
She has also claimed that Islamic terror attacks such as the 2017 Istanbul nightclub shooting are actually Russian false flag operations, again with no evidence whatsoever, and that Bannon was to blame for bomb threats against Jewish community centers.
As part of Wikileaks’ release of John Podesta’s emails last year, Mensch was also exposed as having suggested a campaign ad for Hillary Clinton while stating, “I worry no end about Donald Trump becoming our President … much rather have your girl Hillary.”
