(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Sen.-elect John Fetterman, D-Penn., has tagged a radical election-denier and conspiracy theorist who routinely spread disinformation during the Trump presidency to be his chief of staff, Fox News reported.
He even wrote a book about ending the filibuster titled Kill Switch: The Rise of the Modern Senate and the Crippling of American Democracy.
Jentleson also has lengthy experience in slandering public officials, especially former President Donald Trump.
Back in 2017, he helped launch an initiative to cover the Russia-gate hoax and routinely accused Trump of colluding with the Russians to win the election.
He also co-founded the Moscow Project, the entire poing of which was to undermine every action taken by the Trump administration throughout his presidency.
The Moscow Project, which has been defunct since President Joe Biden took office, was “dedicated to analyzing the facts behind Trump’s collusion with Russia and communicating the findings to the public.”

And yet, despite having no solid evidence to prove his claims, Jentleson repeatedly claimed that the evidence was simply “too obvious” for people to recognize.
The evidence of collusion is already damning.
The only problem is it’s too obvious and obscured by the crush of breaking news. @moscow_project is an essential #ff for rapid response, analysis and context on Trump/Russia news https://t.co/hcvVkK9aKa

Fetterman’s new hire also has previous senatorial experience, having worked for former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., as well as numerous other leftist organizations.
Reid notoriously lied on the Senate floor during the 2012 election, claiming he had damning information about then-GO candidate Mitt Romney’s taxes.
He later shrugged off the deception by unapologetically boasting, “Romney didn’t win, did he?”
When asked how Jentleson’s radicalism might affect the mentally unstable Fetterman, his campaign issued the following statement: “John Fetterman is his own man with his own views; there is no one else like him in the US Senate. John is deeply proud of the team he is putting together for his Senate office. This should not be hard to understand.”
