Fetterman's new chief-of-staff peddled Trump Russia collusion hoax

The Moscow Project was "dedicated to analyzing the facts behind Trump’s collusion with Russia and communicating the findings to the public," its website stated.

Pennsylvania Democratic Sen.-elect John Fetterman's chief of staff helped launch an initiative that accused former President Donald Trump of colluding with Russia and flaunted the debunked Steele Dossier.

Adam Jentleson is the confounder of the Moscow Project, which started at the hands of John Podesta's Center for American Progress Action Fund (CAPAF) at the start of the Trump administration.

A 2017 Politico report found that Jentleson ran the Moscow Project's War Room, Fox News reports.

The Moscow Project was "dedicated to analyzing the facts behind Trump’s collusion with Russia and communicating the findings to the public," its website stated. The site has since been deleted, though it was archived.

In March of 2017, Jentleson wrote that he was "excited" about the project and linked to a copy of the Steele dossier.

"If you've been wondering how much of the Steele dossier is backed up by fact, we annotated it here. (Hint: a lot.)," Jentleson wrote at the time.

As explained by Fox News: "The dossier by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele – controversially published in its raw form in 2017 by BuzzFeed News – alleged that Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election over Hillary Clinton and claimed that the Kremlin had blackmail material on the former president, including a tape of prostitutes urinating on him in a Moscow hotel."

The dossier led to a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant being served against campaign aide Carter Page. The dossier has been completely disproven.

"The Moscow Project helpfully annotated it for you," Jentleson wrote of the dossier in April 2017. "Steele is former MI6 head of Russia desk."

Jentleson accused Trump of Russian collusion on multiple occasions throughout the Mueler investigation. 

"If you're not #ff @moscow_project it's not too late to correct your mistake," he tweeted in July 2018. "From the beginning, no one has tracked Trump/Russia collusion more aggressively or provided more valuable resources for context and analysis."

"The evidence of collusion is already damning," he tweeted in March 2018. "The only problem is it’s too obvious and obscured by the crush of breaking news. @moscow_project is an essential #ff for rapid response, analysis and context on Trump/Russia news."

Jentleson was hired by Fetterman to be his chief of staff earlier this month, reported Politico. He previously worked for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), and for multiple liberal organizations.
