Russian internet trolls sow discord & oppose Trump after the election

 

Russian firm — Internet Research Agency — continues to churn out discord via Facebook

Long term Russian interference:  Before and after 2016 elections the  Russian internet trolls sowed discord.

After the 2016  election,  Russian trolls opposed Trump–  writing posts that Trump  is  not a  legitimate President.  So we learn today from Facebook  lawyers testifying about Russian manipulation of Facebook via political ads.

One Russian firm — Internet Research Agency — churned out  80,000 (80 K) posts on Facebook  from Jan. 2015 through August 2017. “Most of these posts and ads are deeply disturbing” says Facebook General Counsel Colin Stretch.  “Coming from foreign actors using fake accounts is simply unacceptable.”

Internet Research Agency pits groups against other groups.  

Per the WSJ Oct. 31 2017, Facebook, Google and Twitter will divulge new details showing the scope of Russian backed manipulation both before and after the 2016 elections.

Twitter and Google testify Nov. 1 2017 in front of the House and Senate intelligence committees which are conducting probes to uncover what happened during the campaign for President.

Lawyers for Facebook testify that Russians sought to de-legitimize the Trump Presidency after the elections.

So how does this square with mainstream media’s narrative for this past year  of collusion by Trump with Russia? It does not square.
