Journalist Michael Isikoff has built himself quite a reputation. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you about it because this is a family website. just suffice it to say that he didn’t get where he is through hard work and honesty. He is a propagandist, who pretended to write serious columns while working with the DNC. He is a favorite of the Deep State when they want to spread lies about someone in the opposition.
In 2017 it was reported that the FBI was able to spy on the Trump campaign based on a column Isikoff wrote while working with the DNC. Julian Assange blew the whistle on Isikoff and revealed his unseemly connection to the DNC and the Steele Dossier that we now know was a fake.
Emails reveal that Michael Isikoff, whose Yahoo News article based on the “Steele dossier” was used to obtain the FISA interception warrant against the Trump campaign’s Carter Page, was secretly “working with” the DNC. https://t.co/zsRlb9CcVm pic.twitter.com/dkc4JIV0XN

Democratic consultant Alexandra Chalupa wrote to Luis Miranda, communications director of the Democratic National Committee:
“I spoke to a delegation of 68 investigative journalists from Ukraine last Wednesday at the Library of Congress – the Open World Society’s forum – they put me on the program to speak specifically about Paul Manafort and I invited Michael Isikoff whom I’ve been working with for the past few weeks and connected him to the Ukrainians.”
Chalupa, you may recall was working with Ukrainian officials trying to smear Trump and members of his campaign using a fake ledger.
The memo on FISA abuse prepared by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and released earlier this year states:
The Carter Page FISA application also cited extensively a September 23, 2016 Yahoo News article by Michael Isikoff, which focused on Page’s July 2016 trip to Moscow. This article does not corroborate the Steele dossier because it is derived from information leaked by Steele himself to Yahoo News. The Page FISA application incorrectly assesses that Steele did not directly provide information to Yahoo News—and several other outlets—in September 2016 at the direction of Fusion GPS. Perkins Coie was aware of Steele’s initial media contacts because they hosted at least one meeting in Washington D,C, in 2016 with Steele and Fusion GPS where this matter was discussed.”
In the latest example, the Washington Post ran with a story from an anonymous informer that made a claim about a quote allegedly made by President Trump. Later, when it was revealed to be an intentional lie, the WaPo outer the anonymous source as Georgia Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs. Isikoff had run with the story and named the WaPo article as a source, but what he didn’t tell his readers is that it was a fake news story and that the WaPo had already retracted the article for being fake.
