Daniel Goldman, the former federal prosecutor who served as the chief counsel for House Democrats in the impeachment of President Donald Trump, said on Saturday that the president and his allies are going back to the 2016 playbook ahead of the 2020 election by encouraging and promulgating Russian disinformation to influence voters.
“Trump was told that Russia was using Giuliani to spread disinformation to influence the election,” Goldman wrote. “What did he do? He encouraged [Rudy Giuliani’s] efforts and welcomed the help from Russia. If that sounds familiar, it’s because it is. The same thing happened in 2016. This is collusion. Again.”
