Court Records Reveal A Mueller Report Right In Plain View

WASHINGTON (AP) —

The Democrats had blamed Russia for the hacking and release of damaging material on his presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton. Trump wasn’t buying it. But on July 27, 2016, midway through a news conference in Florida, Trump decided to entertain the thought for a moment.

“Russia, if you’re listening,” said Trump, looking directly into a television camera, “I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing” — messages Clinton was reported to have deleted from her private email server.

Actually, Russia was doing more than listening: It had been trying to help Republican Trump for months. That very day, hackers working with Russia’s military intelligence tried to break into email accounts associated with Clinton’s personal office.

It was just one small part of a sophisticated election interference operation carried out by the Kremlin — and meticulously chronicled by special counsel Robert Mueller.

RUSSIA, LOOKING TO INTERFERE

The plot began before Bernie Bros and “Lock Her Up,” before MAGA hats and “Lyin’ Ted,” before there was even a thought of Trump versus Clinton in 2016. It started in 2014, in a drab, concrete building in St. Petersburg, Russia.

There, a group of tech-savvy Russian nationals, working at an organization called the Internet Research Agency, prepared “information warfare against the United States of America.” The battleground would be the internet, and the target was the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

2. 5k in facebook ads is sophisticated?

I love these pieces that all have as their underlying premise 'trust us, its too complicated for you to understand'.

4. Trump "asked Russia" to find Hillary's 30K missing emails.

By the time he asked, Hillary's server had been shut down for more than a year, and wiped clean, like with a cloth (actually, with bleachbit). At that point, Russia couldn't have done what he asked even if they wanted to. Trump never got the thing he asked for. Hillary's defenders claimed that her server was never hacked. The FBI said even if it had been hacked, they wouldn't be able to tell. If Trump got what he wanted, that would mean that her server, which contained classified material, was hacked, which would frankly look worse for her than it would have for him.
