Radio host Alex Jones has claimed that out CNN reporter Anderson Cooper is actually a CIA agent and will “rig” the Presidential debates against the Republican Presidential nominee. Mr Cooper will moderate the second Presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on October 9.
His selection marks the first time that an openly gay moderator has been selected for an official presidential debate. However, Mr Cooper has come under fire from Republicans after Trump alleged that Cooper is “biased” against him. One Trump-backing radio host has taken it even further, by claiming that Cooper is a CIA plant. Alex Jones of InfoWars insisted: “The fix is in at every level. It’s rigged. This is about the rigged system imploding. This is history happening and so I am desperate. I know Trump’s ahead, I know he’s winning, I know they’re going to pull out every stop. They’ve got CIA Anderson Cooper running the next debate. He’s admittedly CIA. And so we are storming the Bastille peacefully with 21st century warfare, which is information warfare.” Mr Cooper previously revealed he had a summer job at the CIA offices – aged 19.
