High Crimes and Misdemeanors – Not by Trump but Obama and Democrats

via High Crimes and Misdemeanors – Not by Trump but Obama and Democrats

Increasing evidence emerges that confirms what ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern suggests was a classic off-the-shelf intelligence operation initiated during the last year of Obama’s presidency against the Trump campaign by employees of, and others associated with, the CIA, FBI, and the NS. Yet the public is being counseled to ignore possible proof of state misconduct.

The historic and unprecedented timing of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of twelve Russia military intelligence officers on the eve of Trump’s meeting with Putin, was clearly meant to undercut Trump’s authority. This still did not pique the journalistic curiosity of an ostensibly independent press to at least pretend to question the possible motivation for these indictments at such a specific moment. 

Instead of critical questions, Democrats, along with the corporate liberal media, flipped the script and suggested that those questioning the allegations of Russian manipulation of the 2016 U.S. elections, which supposedly included the active or tacit support of the Trump campaign, was ipso-facto evidence of one’s disloyalty to the state — if not also complicit with implementing the Russia inspired conspiracy.

    The first question that comes to mind is consider the source:

    Now, who the heck is this?

    How Russia Wins an Election

    You don’t need a security clearance to understand how Vladimir Putin does it.

    Just open your eyes.

    As analysts who have spent years studying Russia’s influence campaigns, we’re confident the spooks have it mostly right:

    The Kremlin ran a sophisticated, multilayered operation that aimed to sow chaos in the U.S. political system – if not to elect Trump outright.

    But you don’t need a security clearance or a background in spycraft to come to that conclusion. All you need to do is open your eyes.

    So how did Putin do it?

    It wasn’t by hacking election machines or manipulating the results, as some have suggested. That would be too crude. The Kremlin’s canny operatives didn’t change votes; they won them, influencing voters to choose Russia’s preferred outcome by pushing stolen information at just the right time — through slanted, or outright false stories [“alternative truth” and “fake news”] on social media.

    As we detailed in our recent report, based on 30 months of closely watching Russia’s online influence operations and monitoring some 7,000 accounts, the Kremlin’s troll army swarmed the web to spread disinformation and undermine trust in the electoral system.

    And America was just the latest target. These “active measures” are techniques Moscow has honed for decades, continually adapting its formula to changing technology and new circumstances. All of it is in service of Putin’s grand strategy of breaking up the European Union and NATO from the inside out — without even firing a shot.

    Politico reports today that according to a knowledgeable source, Facebook knows that “shadowy Russian buyers” purchased advertisements on its platform aimed to influence the 2016 presidential race.

    The ads, we learn, praised Donald Trump, Green Party candidate Jill Stein, and Hillary Clinton’s Democratic primary rival Bernie Sanders — even after he dropped out of the race.

    Although many of the ads said nothing about Clinton, they all either boosted a Clinton rival, or were otherwise aimed at sowing divisions on issues prevalent in the campaign.

    The Politico scoop is just the latest tidbit of information we have learned about Facebook’s role in disseminating Russian-backed propaganda aimed at disrupting the 2016 presidential campaign, following its belated disclosure that Russian entities had indeed used fake accounts to buy political ads.

    Which raises the question: How much can Facebook tell us about what really happened when it comes to Russian sabotage of the 2016 election?

    The other question in my mind is ‘What was Jill Stein doing in Russia sitting in the same room as Putin?’

    And here is Jill Stein’s running mate, Ajamu Baraka, helping out sharing coq.
