The feds are not only investigating Russian meddling in the US election
and possible links to President Trump — they are looking into some
right-wing and conspiratorial websites that boosted the new president
and were sharply critical of Hillary Clinton.
In particular, the FBI is trying to determine whether bots that
promoted articles on websites like Breitbart News and InfoWars were in
some way related to Russia’s effort to interfere in the US election,
The FBI’s Counterintelligence Division is leading the probe.
The social media bots automatically retweeted and otherwise
disseminated posts from the sites throughout the election. It is
believed the bots were being run out of Russia.
“This may be one of the most highly impactful information operations in
the history of intelligence,” a former intelligence official told
Manafort is a douche.
Trump ex-aide Paul Manafort 'offered to help Putin'
US President Donald Trump's one-time campaign chairman secretly worked
for a Russian billionaire to assist President Vladimir Putin, the
Associated Press (AP) news agency reports.
Paul Manafort is said to have proposed a strategy to nullify
anti-Russian opposition across former Soviet republics a decade ago.
AP says documents and interviews support its claims about Mr Manafort.
Mr Manafort has insisted that he never worked for Russian interests.
He worked as Mr Trump's unpaid campaign chairman from March until
August last year, including the period during which the flamboyant New
York billionaire clinched the Republican nomination.
He resigned after AP revealed that he had co-ordinated a secret
Washington lobbying operation on behalf of Ukraine's ruling pro-Russian
political party until 2014.
Newly obtained business records link Mr Manafort more directly to Mr
Putin's interests in the region, AP says.
