The establishment is already trying to spin the narrative that any damaging revelations about Hillary Clinton that come in the form of an “October surprise,” including information about her ill health, will be the work of Russian disinformation agents working on behalf of Vladimir Putin.

The Washington Post reports that the much anticipated “October surprise” could take the form of new revelations about Hillary Clinton’s ill health. However, the pro-Hillary publication asserts that any such information will almost certainly be doctored and leaked by the Russian government.

The Post’s Dana Milbank asks, “Are Vladimir Putin’s operatives planning to dump edited DNC documents on the eve of the presidential election?” before going on to suggest that this contrived October surprise could “show that (Hillary) really did lose most of her brain function in that fall several years ago.”

“Perhaps they’ll show that the Clinton Foundation has been funding the Islamic State, or they’ll have Hillary Clinton admitting that she didn’t care about those Americans who died in Benghazi after all,” he adds, claiming that any such damaging leaks will be the outcome of Russian “dezinformatsiya” campaigns.

“The hyper-competitive American media environment is vulnerable to the sort of technique the Russian hackers used in the Soros case — stealing documents, altering them, then releasing them as the original. If Putin’s hackers were to release such a doctored document smearing Clinton in, say, late October, it’s likely that competition would lead outlets to report on the hacked documents before they had a chance to see whether and how they were altered,” writes Milbank.

The October surprise is almost certainly going to come from Wikileaks’ Julian Assange, who has repeatedly challenged those who accuse him of using Russian sources to provide proof.
