In this Majority Report clip, after a brief stint at 'Trump TV,' Boris Epshteyn was questioned by the US government about possible Kremlin ties. Nothing fishy going on here folks! Just good, honest, local, Russian err... not Russian news. His employer, the massively conservative Sinclair Broadcast Group, owns most of the local news stations in the country. Tell grandma local news is poison.
"Until a few months ago, [Boris] Epshteyn was on the White House payroll. In addition to his special assistant position—which, per Politico, entailed “oversee[ing] White House officials who appear on television to speak on behalf of the administration”—he also served as communications director for the Trump inaugural committee and senior adviser to the campaign. There, the surrogate for America’s bully-in-chief developed a reputation for bellicosity. As the Daily Beast recounted, he’d pleaded guilty to assault in 2014. The House Intelligence Committee also wants to question Epshteyn, who was born in the then–Soviet Union in 1982, about his ties to the Kremlin. In March, not long after the Jewish staffer had crafted the notorious Holocaust Remembrance Day statement that omitted any mention of Judaism, he left the Trump administration amid reports that everyone at every cable news network hated him. A month later, Sinclair scooped him up as a pundit. Now he’s Trumpism’s chummiest salesperson, an everyman touting a #MAGA fantasy.
