    At this point, ironically enough, Russia has turned into the new internet hate machine.

    Well I assumed it would immediately suck less once it was wrested from zaigers hands but that's probably fanciful thinking.

    ED and a number of my mutuals on Twitter were frequently RTing the fake TEN_GOP account that was identified as a Russian account.

    It's funny how a bunch of the people derisively laughing at the idea of Russian interference were the ones actually following and sharing the propaganda.

    And none of these folks seemed to notice how they were suddenly spending a lot of time talking about how awesome Russia is and sharing shirtless pics of Putin wrestling bears and riding horses.

    No matter how many times Trump is publicly proven wrong in a huge way by his own words his supporters are still going to screech about fake news or deep state or whatever random conspiracy they're masturbating to that month.

    A republican appointed by Rosenstein (the guy Trump himself appointed) investigated this and says there's something to it. But it must be a democrat witch hunt? You guys gotta stop using so much Brain Force (tm).

    I still don't think Trump is a Russian agent. I don't think he has the temperament or loyalty to be anyone's lap dog. But Russia was still up to no good.

    Both those things can be true.

    Yeah that's been my position all along. I don't think Trump is smart enough or humble enough to actively seek outside help. He's just an unwitting egomaniac who bumbled his way into the presidency, to some degree aided by now well-documented Russian interference.

    I don't think anyone should be surprised, countries fuck around in other countries political processes all the time. The US, Russia, China, NK, etc have all repeatedly demonstrated their willingness to practice unconventional cyberwarfare on other nations

    Meanwhile @Likeicare over here working feverishly to convince everyone how much the Nunes memo matters



    I guess all those times I called likeicare a Russian agent were accurate.

    I was waiting for this to pop up. The OP is so misleading you could pretty much label it as fake news. Even CNN didnt try to spin it like that. Uber literally shopped around for a source that fit his narrative, some tiny local newspaper from Minnesota


    The facts, as stated by the DOJ, Facebook and Twitter

    They originally started in 2014

    IRA were pushing both Pro-Trump and Pro-Clinton propaganda



    Only a tiny fraction of their content was even election related, and the election related content reached almosy literally no people.



    The DOJ has explicitly stated that no americans were knowingly or unknowingly involved in working with these people

    No they meddled. The word means to interfere. That's what they did lol

    I'm not trying to start the argument that Trump isn't a legitimate president and didn't win on his own.

    Russia tried to interfere in the election though. There have been indictments as a result of these efforts. It happened.

    You really are turning into Baya. Stop believing everything you read on twitter just because it fits with YOUR narrative. You probably follow every single one of those Russian accounts.

    Sure. They attempted to manipulate peoples opinions

    But every country does that. Im not sure what the issue with attempting to manipulate someones idea is

    The original claims were that they had actually "hacked" the election which would be a major issue

    I think this is all even less of an issue seeing as the US will literally overthrow democratically elected foreign leaders if they dont like their politics
