While the debate rages on over how much Russia really influenced the results of the 2016 presidential elections, one detail put the entire controversy in perspective: Democratic operatives spent an identical amount of money on their project to create a Russian bot false flag campaign during the Alabama 2017 special election.
Multiple reports detailed the Russian government-backed Internet Research Agency spent up to $100,000 on Facebook advertisements throughout their entire disinformation operation. As The Daily Caller News Foundation reported Wednesday, billionaire-backed Democrats created more than a thousand Russian-language accounts that followed [Roy] Moores Twitter account overnight.
The group of Democrats behind the elaborate false flag operation, as described in an internal report obtained by The New York Times, also created fake conservative Facebook accounts for the purpose of convincing voters not to support Republican candidate Roy Moore.

The cost of the effort totaled $100,000 the identical amount Facebook says the Russian IRA spent during the last presidential election.
Much of Russias activity during the 2016 campaign, however, cost little-to-nothing. According to analyses of the IRAs activity, many of the Facebook posts created by the organization were seen by millions of Americans without a single dollar spent.
The $100,000 spent by the Russian IRA was just a small fraction of the nearly $40 billion in ad revenue Facebook received in 2017.

Shades of the silent coup against Trump.
Create a bullstalin document, create an echo chamber about the “news”, then report it AS news and “genuine”.
“’people’ online are talking about a write-in campaign to challenge Moore...”
These are the real traitors.
The four part sum of any member of the DNC is liar, lawless, murderer, thug.
This is true of DNC voters, representatives, and appointments.
Demonic-Rats worse than RUSSIANS!
Well, at least we know exactly how much it costs...
IS what the Democrats did LEGAL or Not? That is the only real prosecutable question. If they did, somebody charge them with election interference/tampering and possibly election fraud.
If anyone knows, please post it here at FR.
We wont know if its legal or not until the Mueller witch hunt plays out. That whole endeavor is based upon the hither-to unknown crime of fraud against the United States.
Thanks E. Pluribus Unum.
