MSNBC producer Kyle Griffin is facing a twist on Twitter, which suggests that foreign interference in the fall election could only benefit President Trump.
On Friday, the director of the National Center for Counterintelligence and Security, William Evanina, issued a statement warning that many countries could try to get their thumbs up in November.
“We believe that Russia is using a number of measures to thwart former Vice President Biden and what he sees as an anti-Russian attitude,” Evanina wrote. “This is in line with Moscow’s public criticism of him when he was vice president for his role in the Obama administration’s policies toward Ukraine, and it̵
However, according to Evanina, Russia is not the only bad participant who can try to influence the outcome of the elections.

“We estimate that China prefers President Trump – whom Beijing sees as unpredictable – not winning re-election,” said the intelligence director. “China is expanding its efforts before November 2020 to shape the political environment in the United States, putting pressure on political figures it believes, contrary to China’s interests, to deflect and counter criticism of China.”
Evanina also said Iran “seeks to undermine US democratic institutions, President Trump and divide the country before the 2020 election,” using online influence such as “spreading misinformation.”
Griffin, a senior producer for MSNBC’s “Last Word,” shared an Associated Press headline that only underscored Russia’s apparent efforts to harm Biden, but did not mention China’s and Iran’s desire to undermine Trump.
“WASHINGTON (AP) – US intelligence says Russia is using a number of measures to discourage Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden,” Griffin tweeted to more than 800,000 followers on Twitter.
Griffin, who previously shared misleading tweets about Trump, has been accused of omitting crucial findings from Evanina’s statement in a bid to revive the story of a conspiracy in Russia since the 2016 election.

“The report says China and Iran hope Biden will win, but you won’t mention it because it contradicts your story and your deep thirst for Resistance clicks,” NewsBusters Managing Editor Curtis Hawk told Griffin.
“Interestingly, both China and Iran hope Trump will lose,” wrote Ariel Davidson, a senior analyst at the Jewish National Security Institute. “Kyle conveniently abandoned him, despite the fact that China and Iran pose a much greater threat to the United States [sic] national security than Russia itself and its crippled economy, “
Griffin was blown up in June for publishing only a small excerpt from President Trump’s remarks on chokes.
During an interview with Harris Faulkner, host of Overrun: Extraordinary Time, Trump was asked for his views on certain police reform measures following the death of George Floyd.

“I don’t like chokes,” Trump began. “And I’m going to say this … sometimes when you’re alone and you’re fighting someone, it’s hard. And you put someone in the ass, what are you going to do, say ‘Oh,’ and that’s a really bad person and you know that and they exist … If you have two people or in this case, we are talking about four people … this is a very, very difficult situation. “
He later continued: “I think the concept of chokes sounds so innocent, so perfect, and then you realize – if it’s one to one – now, if it’s two to one, it’s a slightly different story depending on the strength or power. .. but if a police officer is in a bad fight and he has caught someone in the ass – “

“Well, if it’s a one-on-one battle for life, that’s what you’re saying,” Faulkner explained.
“Yes,” Trump replied. “So you have to be careful. With that said, it would be, I think, a very good thing, which in general should end.”
“Trump on Fox: ‘I think the concept of chokehold sounds so innocent, so perfect,'” Griffin tweeted in a post shared by several journalists and even members of Biden’s campaign.
