“Axios On HBO” With Chris Krebs Labeled President Trump A “Domestic Threat” For Pushing “Election Disinformation”

By Mary Fanning and Alan Jones | The American Report | August 9, 2021

AT&T / WarnerMedia’s CNN unit is attacking My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell’s claim that communist China hacked into the 2020 U.S. election via the internet and flipped the election outcome to steal the presidency from Donald Trump and install Beijing’s preferred candidate Joe Biden.

“AT&T has been in China for more than 30 years,” according to AT&T’s own website. “AT&T China has strong technical expertise with branch offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Tianjin and Shenzhen.” AT&T’s deep and long-term business ties to the CCP and Chinese telecom units puts tremendous pressure on CNN to bury Lindell’s assertions that China hacked the 2020 election and to discredit Lindell’s upcoming ‘Cyber Symposium.’

CNN’s And HBO’s Parent Company AT&T Is In Bed With The Chinese Communist Party And Xi Jinping

CNN’s parent company AT&T and the CCP’s state-owned China Telecom established a joint venture in 2000 and renewed that joint venture in 2017, the same year President Trump was inaugurated.

  • CNN’s parent company AT&T Has Operated In China For Over 30 Years 

  • CNN’s parent company AT&T In Joint Venture With CCP’s State-Owned China Telecom

  • Cybersecurity Experts Linked China Telecom, CNN’s and HBO’s parent company AT&T’s joint venture partner, To Cyberwarfare Attack Targeting 2020 U.S. Election

CNN’s parent company AT&T and the CCP’s state-owned enterprise China Telecom established a profitable cooperation agreement.

Cyber security experts uncovered forensic data showing that some of the cyberwarfare attacks targeting the 2020 U.S. election originated with internet protocol (IP) addresses owned by China Telecom.

CNN dismissed the idea that China hacked into the 2020 election as “complete nonsense,” despite the fact that CNN’s affiliate, AT&T / WarnerMedia’s HBO unit produced documentaries showing that U.S. voting machines can be hacked by foreign adversaries and are connected to the internet.

One would have to believe their lying eyes as they watched votes flip in real time from Trump to Biden on CNN’s live broadcast of the 2020 U.S. election returns.

CNN And HBO, In Concert With Obama’s Former CIA Director John Brennan, Aggressively Pushed Discredited Trump Russian Collusion Conspiracy Theory That Putin And Russian Intelligence Services Helped Trump Win 2016 Election

U.S. media and telecommunication conglomerate AT&T’s WarnerMedia, and WarnerMedia’s CNN and HBO units, used CNN’s cable channels and HBO’s cable and streaming platforms to propel the now-discredited and wildly-false narrative that Russia engaged in election hacking during the 2016 election in order to successfully install so-called “Russian agent” Donald Trump. Across wall-to-wall coverage spanning several years, CNN pushed that false Trump Russian collusion narrative. Perhaps “Russia, Russia, Russia” should have been “China, China, China and CNN.”

The eight-minute CNN segment aired on Anderson Cooper 360 on August 6, 2021 and featured discredited CNN reporter Drew Griffin interviewing Lindell.

One of the “experts” whom CNN and Drew Griffin referenced is Harri Hursti, which was completely ridiculous considering that Hursti was featured in two documentaries broadcast by CNN’s affiliate, AT&T subsidiary HBO, in which Hursti exposes that election machines are connected to the internet and can be hacked.

A 2017 CNN report featured a former Obama administration Department of Homeland Security adviser warning that “the 2020 election will be hacked no matter what we do.”

HBO’s 2020 Documentary “Kill Chain: The Cyber War On America’s Elections” Exposed That U.S. Election Computers Can Be Hacked By Foreign Adversaries And Demonstrating How Voting Machines Connect To The Internet 

In 2020, CNN’s affiliate, AT&T subsidiary HBO, released two election-related documentaries during the run-up to the November election. Both documentaries attempted to make the case that Russia hacked the 2016 election.

The HBO documentary, “Kill Chain: The Cyber War On America’s Elections,” featuring Harri Hursti, laid out how election machines were hacked, suggesting that the 2016 election was stolen, all while often alluding to the fake news conspiracy theory that Russia helped Trump win the 2016 election.

HBO’s March 2020 documentary “Kill Chain: The Cyber War On America’s Elections” confirmed in detail the many ways, including via the internet and WiFi, by which U.S. voting machines and election systems are vulnerable to hacking by foreign governments.

Husti proclaimed in a “Kill Chain” bonus clip that “America has been very successful at exporting everything, including exporting election technology, which is broken. So, U.S. actually, by their actions, or the actions of the companies, have made their allies vulnerable. And that scares the living shit out of me.”

HBO’s Kill chain also featured Minnesota Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar, who ran for U.S. president in 2020,  expressing concern that the voting machines are susceptible to hacking attacks.

The theme of the entire “Kill Chain” documentary appeared to be designed to convince HBO’s viewers that Russia hacked the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win — a conspiracy theory which of course would serve the additional purpose of compelling Joe Biden supporters to vote in greater numbers in an effort to stop Russia from supposedly “helping Trump win” again in 2020.

This is propaganda at its worst.

Hursti stated during a March 2020 interview that he worked on “Kill Chain” for three years, which suggests that production began in 2017, President Trump’s first year in office.

On March 26, 2020, just about six months before the 2020 election, HBO released the documentary “Kill Chain: The Cyber War On America’s Elections.”

Kill Chain heavily features cyber security expert Harri Hursti. At the very least, Hursti appeared to be  trying to push the narrative that the Russians stole the 2016 election for Donald Trump.

This is the same Harri Hursti that CNN mentioned as one of CNN’s “experts” who determined that Mike Lindell’s assertion that China hacked the 2020 U.S. election is “complete nonsense.”

Yet, CNN’s assertions are nonsensical.

Of note, the Kill Chain producers claim to have reached out to Dominion Voting Systems yet never heard back. Dominion never sued HBO, though Dominion filed a lawsuit against Mike Lindell for over one billion dollars.

American election technology is “broken” and nations using it are “vulnerable”, according to Harri Hursti in a bonus clip from HBO’s Kill Chain documentary released in 2020 by CNN’s corporate affiliate HBO. Yes, this is the same Harri Hursti whom HBO’s affiliate, AT&T subsidiary CNN, just consulted with for their hit piece targeting Mike Lindell.

Either America’s election systems are “broken” as Hursti said in 2020, or “the November election was the most secure in United States history” as the abruptly-terminated CISA Director Chris Krebs’ Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council attempted to sell to the American people.

“Axios On HBO” Teamed Up With Chris Krebs, The Former CISA Director Who Had Just Been Fired By President Trump, To Designate President Trump As “A Domestic Threat” Spreading Election Disinformation



So which is it? CNN and HBO can not have it both ways. The U.S. election system is not both “broken” and “the most secure in United States history.”

One might think that a coordinated disinformation campaign of this magnitude might be considered sedition.

Appearing on “Axios on HBO” in December 2020, Chris Krebs stated:


So certainly, the president [President Trump] is a big part of the disinformation that’s coming out there about the rigged election…Republican leadership needs to stand up and say this is not — this is just not what we need to be telling the American people right now. We need to be restoring confidence in the election. We need to be restoring confidence in democracy…

…what would we do if the Russians were doing this?


So is Donald Trump a domestic threat?


There is disinformation that he is spreading. I mean, disinformation is one type of threat.

Disinformation is a threat to America, and Chris Krebs is a known disinformation agent.

Once again, Krebs is functioning as a purveyor of the discredited Trump Russian collusion narrative. At what point does Krebs’ disinformation and propaganda become sedition?

Last summer, four months before the 2020 election, FBI Director Christopher Wray publicly warned Americans and U.S. businesses about the dangers presented by the Chinese government’s ongoing  cyberattacks against the United States.

CNBC reported on July 7, 2020:

In blistering remarks Tuesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray slammed the Chinese government for its use of espionage and cyberattacks against the United States which has amounted to what he called “one of the largest transfers of wealth in human history.”

“The stakes could not be higher, and the potential economic harm to American businesses and the economy as a whole almost defies calculation,” Wray said of the Chinese government during an address at the Hudson Institute.

The democrats and CNN, when it’s convenient for them, argue that U.S. election systems are vulnerable to hacking by Russia that, they falsely claim, helped Trump win the 2016 election.

When confronted with evidence that China hacked the 2020 election to help Joe Biden win, democrats and AT&T’s subsidiary CNN suddenly claim that the entire concept of foreign adversaries hacking U.S. elections is a conspiracy theory, and that even talking about it must  be banned across all media, including social media. Stalin would have been proud, as Stalin did the same thing —Stalin controlled the narrative.

Print is the sharpest and the strongest weapon of our party,” Joseph Stalin famously declared.

HBO attempted this, despite the fact that Joe Biden rarely emerged from his basement and though Biden could only attract a handful of supporters to his rare public appearances, including campaign events during which Biden was accompanied by Barack Obama.

Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris, of course, had such anemic voter support that she ended up dropping out of the Democratic primary race in December 2019. Harris is today most known for her failure to address the crisis along the open U.S.-Mexico border.

HBO’s 2020 Documentary Miniseries “Agents Of Chaos” Featured Former CIA Director John Brennan Declaring That Russia Influenced The 2016 Election And “Helped Mr. Trump become president”

On September 23 and 24, 2020, six weeks before the election, CNN affiliate, AT&T subsidiary HBO, broadcast a two-part documentary called Agents of Chaos. In Agents of Chaos, HBO collaborated with former CIA Director John Brennan to push the narrative that Vladimir Putin and Russia’s intelligence services interfered in the 2016 election and successfully installed Russia’s so-called preferred candidate, Donald Trump. It is important to note that CNN affiliate, AT&T subsidiary HBO, released “Agents of Chaos” in September, 2020, eighteen months after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released in March 2019. Special Counsel Mueller’s detailed report found no evidence that Donald Trump colluded with Russia. Yet, democratic operatives continue to push the demonstrably false “Russia, Russia, Russia” Trump-collusion narrative.


…That’s why something of that scope and scale and gravity requires the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, to authorize it and to direct his security services to do it…

…I think their primary objectives, uh, undermine the integrity of the election, hurt the incoming president, and, uh, if possible, get somebody into the Oval Office who’d be more amenable to Russian overtures…

…Yes, they did succeed. Absolutely they succeeded…They certainly, I think, helped Mr. Trump become president.

HBO’s 2006 Documentary “Hacking Democracy”

For fifteen years, CNN’s affiliate, AT&T subsidiary HBO has been exposing the reality that electronic voting machines in the United States are vulnerable to hacking.

It is worth mentioning  once again that AT&T is in bed with the CCP and Chairman Xi.

In 2006, CNN’s affiliate, AT&T subsidiary HBO, broadcast “Hacking Democracy,” an early documentary that presented evidence that voting machines are hackable. Now, however, CNN dismisses election hacking as “THE BIG LIE.”

CNN’s Lou Dobbs program broadcast a feature story about “Hacking Democracy.”

In 2019, CNN Affiliate, AT&T’s Subsidiary HBO’s Political Satire Program “Last Weekend With John Oliver” Exposed The Weak Condition Of U.S. Election Cybersecurity And The Fact That Voting Machines Use Modems To Connect To The Internet

As reported by Real Clear Politics, HBO’s political satire program “Last Weekend with John Oliver” in 2019 mocked U. S. electronic voting machines’ poor cybersecurity record and made the case that voting machines are connected to the internet via modems.

Now, in 2021, only eight months later, HBO’s affiliate, AT&T subsidiary CNN, while hoping their viewers have short memories, is awkwardly trying to reverse the narrative on CNN’s and HBO’s previous reporting, in a thinly veiled all-hands-on-deck effort to save the collapsing communist Biden-Obama regime.

CNN, more than most, participated in the fake Russia Collusion false narrative against President Trump. CNN’s hands are not clean. As the whole country is well aware, CNN anti-Trumper legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin’s hands are also unclean.The globalist network is obviously biased, anti-American and anti-Trump.

Perhaps AT&T’s defense contracts with the Pentagon and the NSA should be reviewed. “AT&T was awarded one of the National Security Agency’s most coveted classified tech contracts despite a bid that was $750 million higher than the other competitor’s bid,” NEXTGOV reported in 2018.

During a 1923 speech, Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin stated that “Print is the sharpest and the strongest weapon in our party.”

When it is convenient to tell one story, HBO’s affiliate, AT&T subsidiary CNN will tell it.

When HBO’s affiliate, AT&T subsidiary CNN wants another outcome, CNN will completely reverse themselves, only showing that CNN, “the most trusted name in news,” can not be trusted as purveyors of truth.

Results-oriented journalism is no journalism at all – it is propaganda worthy of Stalin, Hitler, and Mao, and CNN.

Query: “Is CNN is an anti-America news outlet?”
