Massachusetts senator Ed Malarky, er, that’s Ed Markey (D), used conspiracy-theory blogs as sources for information on alleged Trump-Russia connections, according to an assistant from his office.
Worse yet, Markey has been peddling the information as real on mainstream cable news.
“In fact, subpoenas have now been issued in Northern Virginia in regard to General Flynn and General Flynn’s associates. A grand jury has been em-paneled up in New York,” the Democrat said in a Wednesday CNN interview.
One of Markey’s aides told The Daily Caller that his sources were Louise Mensch’s blog and a left-wing shock-journalism site called The Palmer Report.
Mensch is well-known as a Cold Warrior who thinks even Ted Cruz is working for Moscow.
Markey offered a limp apology in a statement released today. There has been, of course, no retraction from CNN.
