Crime: Russia targets Democratic Party for Voter Fraud

Crime: Russia targets Democratic Party for Voter Fraud

Post Date: 07/01/2016

Jul-Aug-Sep: Starting in the summer of 2016, Russia targets the Democratic Party for fake voter fraud stories. These stories might sound familiar because Trump echoed them at rallies, and Fox News echoed them on air which led to their echo throughout the Trump info bubble. During the time right before an election, undecided and moderate voters check-in with these info bubbles and were fed fake news stories directly from the Kremlin.

Examples that STARTED with Russia, then Trump, then Fox News:

In Aug, Russia used their Facebook account “Stop A.I.” to allege “Hillary Clinton has already committed voter fraud during the Democratic Iowa Caucus.”

Also in Aug, Russia used their “@TEN_GOP” Twitter account to allege the fake news story that Democratic voter fraud was being investigated in North Carolina.

In Nov, Russia used their “@TEN_GOP” Twitter account to start the fake news story of “#VoterFraud by counting tens of thousands of ineligible mail in Hillary votes being reported in Broward County, Florida.”

Verified: In court documents.
