CNN, the Washington Post and the rest of the media coup gang is crawling all over the indictments. They're crawling over one part of the indictment while rephrasing it in their own words.
Here's the original text
"By 2016, Defendants and their co-conspirators used their fictitious online personas to interfere with the 2016 U.S. presidential election. They engaged in operations primarily intended to communicate derogatory information about Hillary Clinton, to denigrate other candidates such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and to support Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump."
So where's the Bernie Sanders collusion investigation? We are talking about the radical leftist who honeymooned in the USSR and supported a variety of Marxist terror groups.
But the same quote that is used to cast suspicion on Trump, doesn't have the same meaning when it comes to Bernie Sanders.
On or about February 10, 2016, Defendants and their co-conspirators internally circulated an outline of themes for future content to be posted to ORGANIZATION-controlled social media accounts. Specialists were instructed to post content that focused on “politics in the USA” and to “use any opportunity to criticize Hillary and the rest (except Sanders and Trump—we support them).”
What does "we support them" actually mean?
It doesn't mean that the Russians were actually trying to influence the election, despite the claims made in the indictment.
"The majority of the Russian ad spend happened AFTER the election. We shared that fact, but very few outlets have covered it because it doesn’t align with the main media narrative of Tump and the election," Rob Goldman, the Facebook Ad VP tweeted.
The Russians weren't trying to influence the election, but to build social media influence and spread their propaganda by pretending to support the causes likely to attract dissatisfied Americans, that meant everything from Trump to Bernie Sanders to Black Lives Matter.
The indictment continues to push the lie that the Russians wanted to influence the election, rather than to influence Americans. That's why it began well before the election and continued after the election was over.
