Trolls, leaked emails, punish HRC and fostering a mistrust in US democracy was that the plan of Russia this election season?

Russia, this story contends, spread fake news to punish HRC.


The flood of “fake news” this election season got support from a sophisticated Russian propaganda campaign that created and spread misleading articles online with the goal of punishing Democrat Hillary Clinton, helping Republican Donald Trump and undermining faith in American democracy, say independent researchers who tracked the operation.


Can't tell if this attempt by Russia to punish HRC and help Trump was effective, but it did help make a mistrust in the US democracy.


There is no way to know whether the Russian campaign proved decisive in electing Trump, but researchers portray it as part of a broadly effective strategy of sowing distrust in U.S. democracy and its leaders. The tactics included penetrating the computers of election officials in several states and releasing troves of hacked emails that embarrassed Clinton in the final months of her campaign

Now isn't the Washington post. now owned by that Mexican Billionaire friend of the Clintons, who's wealth it is rumoured to have come from the drug cartels. They must have dreamt that one up during a vacation on Epstein's island.

Of course they did. They started a really odd Conservative like of Putin, almost to the point of being 'fanboyish'.

Putin knows Clinton would be no 'pushover' and has described Trump as 'a colorful figure'. Of course Putin wanted a Trump win.

This has been covered in many news reports. Focusing on WAPO as slanted does not erase this.

Lenin had a good phrase for Trump and his supporters, "useful idiots." Let that sink in for one second.

This whole website was in love with Putin long before this election cycle.

Oddly enough, he only became a villain again when the "russians" started "hacking" everything in site.

Perhaps if this is true, Putin thought he did not like Hillary and her thoughts of how to start WW3.

You complain about people sticking their noses in your elections while you cause crap like the Arab Spring, multiple wars all over the world and even spy on supposed friends.

I hate hypocrisy.

Let's not forget how Obama tried to influence the outcome of Israel's election by sending in his personal election campaign team to try to get the opposition elected over Netanyahu.

Whatever you think about Netanyahu, you cannot complain about Russia trying to influence an election unless your own hands are clean.

When exactly did Lenin mention Trump? My knowledge of history isn't that good but I have noticed that he hasn't made too many speeches recently.

Their is also a phrase that would suit the Clintons, "Marxist Leninists" Where you grab power by any means, when you have it you shoot anyone who disagrees with you.

No accountability once again. Doesn't matter who hacked the emails, they came out and were damaging.

But you don't want to touch all of the American media outlets that played antitrump rhetoric on a 24 hour loop for almost a year.

Or Vladdy knew HRC would start a war with Russia and he wants to avoid the fallout. He maybe saw what 1/2 the country saw, a leader that was logical and not bought by big corps like HRC is, oops was.

But they were true, and showed the type of person who would be President. The Media told a different story.

They still haven't got to the point about what this "fake news" is even about. All they care about is how it swayed maybe 1% of voters away from Clinton - they are concerned about that because it was not a result of their own propaganda machine. Instead of listening to the crap on telly, some voters (too few to really be effective) changed their mind because they took seriously the allegations which were being made, such allegations that outlets such as the Washington Post are still yet to directly report on.

what so the emails, lying to congress,pay to play,bill cutting deals with lynch, benghazi, fbi investigating the clinton foundation, plus the whole host of other stuff had nothing to do with the U.S citizens putting a boot in her ass.

it took fake news on the internet to do her in, yeah sure i believe it. i also believe there are little gray men pulling the strings in the world.

that might work for butt hurt snowflakes that swig down the kool aid. but people that have any rational thought know better.

Let's not even address the point that for many, the hacked emails only provided proof of what we have always suspected about Hillary anyhow.

She was already done in by the first email scandal as far as I was concerned. It doesn't matter that Comey backed off and decided not to prosecute anyone with eyes, a brain, and ears could see the law and hear him lay out how she violated every aspect of it.

What really happened is NEW MEDIA won OLD MEDIA lost.

You and I are new media and we are winning.
