The mainstream media, while reporting on the investigation into Russia's possible meddling in the 2016 election, is picking up false information "purposely" planted by the Russians, best-selling author Ronald Kessler claimed Thursday morning.
For example, Kessler, author of the "Secrets of the FBI," pointed out to Fox News' "Fox and Friends" that some language being used in media reports is not the language ever used by the FBI, including the term "person of interest."
"They simply do not do that," Kessler said. "Anybody who knows the FBI knows that that term doesn't exist when it comes to a counterintelligence investigation, and this is an example of the false stories being planted by the Russians because the Russians encrypt their communications."
This means, said Kessler, that whenever such communications are picked up, that "means by definition that the Russians purposefully put them out.."
