It's undeniable Russia wanted Trump to be elected and Russian media actively participated. http://www.russialies.com/russias-to...ional-edition/

Comey confirms Wikileaks served as front for Russian hacks of Democratic National Committee

Here's that moment: Comey confirms the Russians hacked both Dems & Republicans, but didn't release any GOP info

Timed Fake News Bots, Russia and the U.S. election. This already beggars belief.

AGAIN the first long use of information warfare by Russia in the Balkans to drive their narrative/agenda....

Russia unleashed a massive information war against Ukraine a FULL two years before annexing Crimea and invading eastern Ukraine.

How influence of Russian media risks making Serbia a Moscow bureau

One of the major Ukrainian independent media outlets...

We've secured our account after a hacker attack.

Thanks all for your support of independent journalism.

Attack came from far eastern Russia....

Comey: "An unauthorized disclosure of a FISA is extraordinary and we are taking it very seriously." Did he just confirm existence of FISA?

Initial social media reporting from the JUL timeframe indicated a FISA warrant had been issued to investigate the two servers talking to each other...one in Alfa Bank Moscow and one in the Trump Tower...

That investigation is still evidently ongoing..especially since Alfa Bank attempted via a press release to "blame unnamed hackers" for creating the illusion of a communication....

BTW...long after the info became public..you would think they would have stated that back in JUL 2016...

This individual was the one on FOX News that picked up the Russian media conspiracy of the UK spying on Trump and then broadcast it without fact checking and which was then repeated specifically by the Trump WH as being factual and totally true...it was also picked up by the right wing media outlet Infowars as well...

Getting rather brazen, I'd say..."Russian Alfa Bank threatens US academic researcher with suit over DNS request data"
https://www.cyberscoop.com/alfa-bank...uit-dns-data/#


This is the same Russian bank the FBI has a FISA warrant on...and I would hate to be the Russian bank when the lawyer for the researcher does a "discovery request"...actually the FBI might actually enjoy that request....

This is the same Russian bank that weeks after they were named back in OCT suddenly discovered they were "hacked"....

This is an extremely interesting article as it goes to the heart just how disinformation and the Russian propaganda 6Ds principles functions.......

Social science research suggests that #Trump 's "alternative version of reality may appeal to his supporters." : NYT

The second reason that Russian disinformation and propaganda functions well.....

Putin’s ‘secret weapon’ against the West – massive illegal cash hordes in foreign#countries
http://euromaidanpress.com/2017/03/2...maidan-press/#

Here is an interesting example......of just how the money works.....

There was for years a left leaning radio talk show host Ed Schulz who rode the unionist...leftist view and fired shot after shot against the Republicans...and was heavily involved in attempting to push back actions be taken by the Wisconsin government against unions.

He then landed a MSNBC nightly show .....still pushing his left leaning agenda but this time on TV.....

THEN he lands suddenly a multi millions TC show on of all places Russia Today WHERE he suddenly swings into full time support for Trump...the Republicans and pushes a proRussian agenda....voicing similar narratives as does the mother ship Russia Today in Moscow......

Another example was the 48K paid to Flynn to show up at the recent RT celebration in Moscow and who sat on the same table as Putin....

Did absolutely nothing but smile and got 48K for a single dinner...
