    DNC is dealing with mythical 'Russian Propaganda'. Why not begin to deal with Israel's influence on the US politic or domestic terrorism?. All wars US fought are for Israel interests, not for American ones.Until now there is no one serious proof of any Russian involvement in any American political matter, except 24/7 lying of Deep State, presstitutes and Israel lobby.

    On Wednesday, lawyers for Facebook, Twitter and Google faced down Democratic lawmakers who essentially threatened them for not shutting down Russian propaganda during the 2016 election cycle. Democrats have been adamant that distribution of Russian propaganda on social media played a major role in Hillary Clinton’s election defeat, and are now seeking to use that assumption as a lever to regulate the internet giants.


    Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) complained that the platforms had been “misused.” She threatened, “you have to be the ones who do something about it – or we will.”

    Wonder why they don't clean up the voter rolls in areas of California and Chicago first? Clinton's and crew didn't seem to mind taking Russian, Chinese, Arab and anyone else's money to influence peddle throughout the country with their chit.

    The Russian ads released thus far, were all anti Clinton, pro Trump.

    The ads underscore how foreign agents sought to sow confusion, anger and discord among Americans through messages on hot-button topics. U.S. intelligence services say the Russian use of social media was part of a broad effort to sway the 2016 presidential election in favor of Trump. Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether the Kremlin worked with the Trump campaign to influence voters.

    Lawmakers release troves of Facebook ads showing Russia's cyber intrusion

    Yahoo posted the same news as the Tribune. Since Pubbies hold majorities in BOTH Houses of Congress, and the Presidency, Democrats have not threatened anything that can be done.
