MSNBC host Rachel Maddow gave a “heads up” to other news organizations on Thursday after she was sent what she believes are faked National Security Agency documents alleging collusion between a member of the Trump campaign and Russian government.

“Somebody, for some reason, appears to be shopping a fairly convincing fake NSA document that purports to directly implicate somebody from the Trump campaign in working with the Russians in their attack in the election,” Maddow said in a lengthy segment on her show.

She suggested that the unidentified muckraker who sent her the fake documents hopes to undermine news organizations in general and deflate the Trump-Russia collusion investigation, which has been going on for nearly a year.

“This is news, because: why is someone shopping a forged document of this kind to news organizations covering the Trump-Russia affair?” Maddow asked.

On June 7, an unidentified person sent documents to an online tip line for Maddow’s show, she said.

That was two days after The Intercept published legitimate NSA documents that were stolen by Reality Winner, a contractor for the agency.

Maddow said that the documents sent to her show appeared to have used The Intercept’s published documents as a template. Secret ID markings on The Intercept reports appeared on the documents passed to Maddow.

  • Rebel w/out a Cause

    Probably someone from Rachel’s own staff.

    “Let’s see. How can we restore our credibility? I know! ‘Anonymously’ send a fake document to ourselves. Then we can claim that the only reason we offer up fake news is because we’ve been set up by those evil alt-right Trump voters. It’s THEIR fault. All WE’RE trying to do is report the news. Yeah, that’s the ticket!”

    Now let’s see how deeply they dig to find the culprit. Like CNN.

    James O’Keefe strikes again .

    • Rebel w/out a Cause

      Jeez, Renee. I HOPE that was sarcasm….

  • Milly Vanilly

    Probably Soros is behind it….always stirring the pot.

  • Phil_Ossifer

    Sounds suspiciously like the (in)famous MJ-12 documents which also were obtained from anonymous sources. Whenever documents just show up out of thin air a high level of skepticism as to the documents’ authenticity it warranted, to sa the least. Why even mention these fake documents unless they’re trying to set up an alibi for their reporting of fake news (“We were lied to…”). More like, “We made stuff up and got caught.”

  • How do we know that Rachel Maddow didn’t create them the same way Obama created his bogus birth certificate?

  • A bridge too far

    I thought the article would read, someone sent Rachel Mad Cow hoof and mouth disease.
