Singer Richard Melville Hall, better known by his stage name Moby, is claiming that the CIA asked him to spread the word on social media about the truthfulness of the Trump dossier. He also said that Trump is being “blackmailed” by the Russian government and that there was collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign.

Moby revealed the information during an interview with a Kentucky radio station.

Fox News:

The subject came up after the host, Kyle Meredith, asked the electronic singer about his cryptic Facebook post he wrote in 2017. The post stated that after he spent time with friends who “work in D.C.” he could “accurately post” that the Fusion GPS Dossier was “100% real. He’s being blackmailed by the Russian government.” The post also claimed Trump has colluded “with the Russian government, and has been since day one,” wants to go to war and there are “right-wing plans to get rid of Trump.”

after spending the weekend talking to friends who work in dc i can safely(well, 'accurately'…) post the following…

How did we miss this? This is bombshell territory.

Moby said he wrote the post because his “friends” he claimed are “active and former CIA agents” asked him to “pass on some information.”

“They were like, ‘This is the Manchurian Candidate, like [Putin] has a Russian agent as the President of the United States,’” he told Meredith. “So they passed on some information to me and they said, like, ‘Look, you have more of a social media following than any of us do, can you please post some of these things just in a way that sort of put it out there.’”

Moby concluded by saying he did not know if “there was collusion” but “where there is smoke there is fire.”

Mr. Hall is described as an “American musician, DJ, record producer, singer, songwriter, photographer and animal rights activist. He is well known for his electronic music, veganism and support of animal rights.”

Methinks Moby should start eating meat.

I’m sure veganism is healthy and all that, but humans didn’t begin to get really, really smart until they started to hunt, kill, and eat meat. Protein grew our brains, making us into the super-predators we are today.

Moby appears to be an antelope grazing on saw grass stuck on the savanna waiting for a lion to pounce. How else can you explain his falling for either a gag from his “CIA friends” or what amounts to a not-very-clever CIA disinformation campaign?

If the CIA wanted to spread a collusion story on social networks, they wouldn’t use one of their “friends” who would go on Facebook or on the radio and blab about being told to post about it. If it were true, they’d be the dumbest agents in the organization’s history.

The CIA is not above using the media to spread false stories. But generally speaking, they use individual reporters to unknowingly spread false information. The biggest question mark raised by this story is: what CIA employee in his right mind tells anyone who he really works for? And if Moby’s “friends” are so far down the CIA pecking order that they feel safe revealing their true identity, how much can they really know about Russian collusion?

Like Moby, only what they read in the papers.
