Russian pranksters Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov have struck again.
The Russian radio personalities that once duped Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) have struck again, this time catching Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) making some rather embarrassing statements, according to Fox News.
After the embarrassing call that duped Schiff in February 2018, you would think our Democrat representatives would have a much better vetting system when taking calls. But it seems the two Russian pranksters managed to convince Waters that she was talking to the teen climate change “genius,” Greta Thunberg and her father.
Kuznetsov and Stolyarov posted the audio of the phone call on their YouTube channel on Wednesday. During the call, Waters could not heap enough praise on Thunberg, and even thanked her for coming to her state.
Dirt on Trump?
Much like what happened with Schiff, the pranksters lured in Waters with the promise of dirt on President Donald Trump. The fake Thunberg set the table by relaying the “terrible meeting” she had with Trump at the U.N. building in September 2019.
When Thunberg’s “father” took over the call, he promised Waters he had some dirt on Trump specifically related to Ukraine. Waters sounded like she was about to hit the lottery, stating: “Oh, my God! He mentioned Ukrainian president?”
Take a look:
Silence from Maxine
Waters eventually invited the two of them to her office to share their information — which, of course, begs the question of whether Waters was enlisting a foreign agent to help taint the outcome of a U.S. election.
When news of Schiff’s embarrassing incident broke, he tried to explain his phone conversation away, saying he knew it was a prank all along, so Waters will probably do the same.
However, either both of them are incredible actors, or they are outright lying. Based on their track records, it’s not unreasonable to lean more towards the latter conclusion.
According to Fox News, Waters’ office has not responded to inquiries about the prank phone call.
