Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton floated a conspiracy theory on national television Monday night.
Appearing on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Moulton said the U.S. bombing attack on Syria “could very well be an attempt by the administration to get out from under the claim that they are colluding with Russia.”
Pressed repeatedly by Carlson, Moulton declined to provide any evidence for the claim, saying instead that “there are people who think that.” Throughout the interview, Moulton could not name a single person who ascribes to that theory.
“Are you saying, that this was part of an elaborate ruse, that in fact he was working with the Russians to divert attention from this diabolical conspiracy you’ve been alleging, that this was a Potemkin bombing, a fake bombing designed to fool the rest of this into thinking they’re not really in league with each other?” The Daily Caller co-founder asked.
