​Trump adviser cites West Virginia fan site as Russian hack plotline thickens

Former Donald Trump campaign manager Roger Stone weirdly cited a post on a West Virginia fan board amid discussions about Russian hacking.

Former Donald Trump campaign manager Roger Stone weirdly cited a post on a West Virginia fan board to claim FBI director James Comey testified that the Russians were not WikiLeak’s source for John Podesta’s leaked emails.

The post on the West Virginia site includes a copy-and-paste of an article from the Gateway Pundit that says, “the most important piece of information that Comey disclosed to Congress (Monday) was that the Russians did not provide WikiLeaks HIllary’s campaign manager John Podesta’s email.”

To clarify, what Comey said was Podesta’s information was provided to WikiLeaks via a third party.

Vernon Bailey, owner and publisher of WVSports.com, is one of many amused that the site has been inserted into one of the biggest stories facing the country.
