Richard Melville Hall, better known by his stage name, ‘Moby,’ claimed during an interview with WFPK’s Kyle Meredith that CIA agents “passed on some information” to him and asked him to spread the word on social media that Russia is “blackmailing” the president into being their “Manchurian candidate.”
Moby has claimed for nearly a year that the unsubstantiated claims contained in the Fusion GPS dossier are real. Now, he says CIA agents in Washington, D.C. gave him “information” and told him to spread the word on social media.
Last February, following the Presidential inauguration of Donald Trump, Moby posted on social media claiming to have insider information on connections between the Trump administration and Russia. The producer/DJ said that “after talking to friends in DC,” he had allegedly learned that the Fusion GPS dossier was “100% real” and that the Russian government was “blackmailing” the president. Now, in a new interview with WFPK in Louisville, Kentucky, Moby has doubled down on his claims (as CoS points out).
Moby claims that CIA agents he met in DC were “really concerned [about] this fusion GPS report of Trump essentially being run as a Russian agent. And these are some active and former CIA agents who were truly concerned. They were like ‘this is the Manchurian candidate. We have a Russian agent as the president of the United States.'”
Moby seems to believe that CIA agents thought President Trump was a “Russian agent” and that they believed the largely discredited Trump-dossier. To this day, most of the Trump dossier amounts to no more than rumor and has no fact-based evidence to supports its claims. Yet Moby thinks CIA agents wanted to find a solution to the “Manchurian candidate.”
Obviously, the CIA had no evidence that Trump was a “Russian agent.” Yet Moby says agents asked him to post anti- Trump attacks on social media.
“And so they passed on some information to me,” Moby continued. “and they were like ‘look, you have more of a social media following than any of us do. Can you please post some of these things just in a way to sort of put it out there.'”
The “information” that was supposedly passed to Moby isn’t evidence of any sort, but baseless rumors about Trump.
It’s easy to conclude that Moby was either making things up or going crazy. But there’s another possibility.
Moby could have been duped by intelligence agents who wanted a negative ad campaign to spread conspiracy theories about Trump. Moby’s tale obviously appeals to his own arrogance. CIA agents would hardly need to recruit Moby to post things on Twitter to get the “truth” out.
Perhaps intelligence agents really did approach Moby. If so, they fed him conspiracy mumbo-jumbo, knowing he’d be too flattered and stupid to realize they were using him to spread lies.
Moby, however, seems absolutely convinced of several conspiracies. He says Trump didn’t just collude with the Kremlin but is also involved in organized crime and terrorism.
Furthermore, he thinks things will get worse. Without backing up anything he says with facts or even sentence structure, Moby’s interview starts to appear like he and Kyle Meredith are playing Mad Libs.
“It’s really disturbing,” Moby said, “and it’s going get quite a lot darker. Like the depths of the Trump family and business, their involvement with organized crime, sponsorers of terrorism, Russian oligarchs. It’s really dark.”
Is Moby just trying to get attention, but only convincing enough to interest America’s dumbest music fans?
Or was he used as a pawn by some intelligence agents who claimed to be CIA?
