Without Evidence, WaPo Writer Says Trump Wouldn’t Have Won Without Russia

It has become one of the Washington Post’s favorite headline constructions: “Without Evidence, Trump Claims ______”

Since they’re so fond of using this tactic – even when it isn’t true – we thought we’d turn it around on them. Because on Tuesday, WaPo columnist Max Boot – one of those so-called conservatives who has made a name for himself hating on Trump – made the extraordinary, unproven claim that the president could not have won the 2016 election without the aid of the Russian government.

In his piece, Boot makes an argument, no doubt about that; he goes on for nearly 1,000 words while trying to prove his point. But does he provide any EVIDENCE to back up the claim in the headline: that without Russian help, Trump would have lost to Hillary? No. No he does not.
