Anti-Trump conspiracy theorist on London attack: ‘Make no assumptions’

A prominent #NeverTrump conspiracy theorist advised people via Twitter to “make no assumptions” regarding Sunday’s terror attack in London and then claimed that Vladimir Putin was responsible for the atrocity.

“Make no assumptions as to who caused [the terror attack],” read a Saturday night tweet posted by Louise Mensch, an independent journalist. Another tweet followed that said, “We know [Putin] funds ISIS, Al Qaeda, and Assad. We hold him responsible.”

“It kills [Putin] that we do not care to ostraci[z]e our Muslim compatriots,” Mensch tweeted. “I am so sorry my dear Muslim brothers and sisters. we [sic] will make [Putin] pay for this.”

Mensch was instrumental in establishing Heat Street, a libertarian website featuring news and commentary which is a subsidiary of News Corporation. Known as a harsh Trump critic, messages from Mensch appeared in John Podesta’s emails suggesting a campaign ad in support of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential bid, Politico reported.

According to the Observer, Mensch and her coworker Claude Taylor claimed in May that the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court had issued an indictment against Trump to lay the foundation for Trump’s impeachment—but such courts do not issue indictments.

The Daily Caller reported that Mensch “has previously blamed Russia or Putin, frequently without evidence, for incidents such as the terrorist bombing of a bus ridden by a German soccer team and the death of Andrew Breitbart.”

In a 2012 interview with the BBC’s Question Time, Mensch said, “I did serious drugs and it messed with my head. It’s had long-term mental health effects on me. It’s caused me to be more anxious than I need to be.”
