After admitting that they spread conspiracy theories, the social media manager of @RT_Deutsch has been reported missing.

Strange is it not...but confirmed the individual has not been to work since he admitted this via twitter....

Identified proRussian US troll.....

Seth Abramson

@SethAbramson
(PS2) What changed? The far-right Mensch saw she could become famous in America by trolling progressives—and calling many Russian agents.

@SethAbramson
(PS) Mensch, weeks after saying DJT had ties to Putin: "I'm very very nearly on the Trump train. I'm definitely thinking about getting on."

Us Trump supporters stand % with Sean Hannity because he's stood with us from the beginning and he's always stood with Trump! Don't stop!

One does have to wonder just where FOX News is lately..is it a US media outlet or is it really working for the current ongoing Russian active measure influence operation directed straight at the US....

I will address this suffering family tonight at 10. It breaks my heart. Know this, I will pursue the truth wherever it may lead, 4 justice.

THIS story has been branded a TRUE fake news article ALL designed to DEFLECT anything on the Russian connections and change the media narrative in order to protect Trump.

This twitter account is one of the major disinformation centers on Twitter on the US side...claimed for months he was a double agent who had worked for the FBI...FBI informed him that he had to stop that comment......and that he was not a former FBI agent ...attacks accounts of social media journalists who are investigating the Trump Russian connections......

Just want to make this clear tweeting at the FBI versus walking in and filing a complaint with the FBI are two VERY different things.

A MUST read article.....

@citizenlab MUST-READ report on Russian espionage & active measures—fresh evidence on targeting, forgeries

Fake documents is a longstanding Chekist Active Measures ploy. Seems FBI fell for this deza.

You thought Russia didn't interfere with the FBI's handling of HRC's emails? Think again.

So whoever inside the NYC FBI division that was handling the Clinton investigations needs to be thoroughly reviewed......and asked why and how he got the document??

Anyone who has handled Wikileaks dumped data often finds scattered in that datadump fake documents...even in the Podesta email datadump there were fake documents....

ShadowBrokers will release new NSA exploit trove in June
7 days ago

thatsnumberwang

Quote:
ShadowBrokers, the hacking outfit that uncovered the EternalBlue windows exploit behind WannaCry, claim to be in possession of ‘75% of the NSA’s arsenal’ and will start to release it in June.

WannaCry is still causing chaos across businesses and government agencies in 150 countries across the globe, although it is now losing momentum.
After spending May ‘feeling guilty’ about WannaCry’s devastation, which included operating theatres having to reschedule vital surgeries in the UK, ShadowBrokers are gearing up to release fresh NSA tools that cover web browsers, routers, smartphones, data from the international money transfer network Swift and “compromised network data from Russian, Chinese, Iranian, or North Korean nukes and missile programs”.
The standard of English on the group’s Medium and Steemit pages is very poor, sometimes bordering on illegible. However, the group have never failed on any of their claims.
The Microsoft 10 operating system is specifically mentioned as being the victim of one exploit, suggesting that the Microsoft security patching team are in for a rough time once again, and that the Cold War brewing between Microsoft and the NSA is set to be amplified further.
Many individuals, including NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, believe based on contextual evidence that ShadowBrokers are linked to the Kremlin. Ultimately, no one has brought to light any hard evidence from the group’s methods or digital footprint to prove that this is the case.
Another theory claims that ShadowBrokers have a source within the NSA’s Tailored Access Operations team, and that the NSA was never even hacked. Some NSA data obtained the ShadowBrokers was reportedly stored on a physically segregated network that was not attached to the internet, making it impossible to access via remote hacking.
The NSA have so far refused to comment on the new breach in their trove of cyber weapons.
There is in fact an ongoing war between Shadowbrokers and The Equation Group....

Some are alluding to the NKs as being involved if in fact reports indicating a potential NSA hack on NK missile production did in fact occur....

CyberBerkut used David Satter's compromised email to try to phish me, too. Alerted David to this at the time:

Russia's #Donbass propaganda is getting truly desperate. Now reporting mass horrors committed in #Mariupol, yet they only publish a WW2 Pic?
