DAILYKENN.com -- Michael Moore? In collusion with Russians?
Before I share my conspiracy theory, let me note that:
The media prefers to the term "collusion" rather than "conspire."
This allows the media to avoid being accused of spreading conspiracy theories.
Truth is: Collusion theory and conspiracy theory are usually synonymous.
Here's an impromptu conspiracy theory:
The Republicans conspired with the Russians to bait the Democrats.
The Democrats took the bait and accused the Republicans of conspiring with the Russians.
Meanwhile, the Russians ACTUALLY WERE conspiring with the Democrats.
The Republicans effectively roped the dopes and, once the media ran with the Republican-Russian collusion theory for a year or so, the Republicans began leaking collusion stories linking Russians and Democrats.
The Michael Moore event is one example.

Michael Moore, the polemical filmmaker who has long accused President Trump of colluding with Russians, posted videos and pictures of himself participating in a protest in Manhattan that was allegedly organized by Russians in November 2016.
Prosecutors said Friday that the Russians indicted for meddling in the presidential campaign were also behind anti-Trump rallies that occured after the election.
The government alleged in an indictment signed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that the defendants organized a Nov. 12 “Trump is NOT my President” rally in New York. Their “strategic goal” was to “sow discord in the U.S. political system,” the indictment said.
On Nov. 12, Moore tweeted: "At today's Trump Tower protest. He wouldn't come down."
He attached a picture of himself posing with a large number of protesters.
