Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of 13 Russians on Friday confirmed what many of us already suspected about “Russian Collusion.” It appears the Russians used anti-Trump resistance to stoke division in the United States. They did not care who would win the election.
The Dailycaller reported: Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of 13 Russian nationals on Friday confirms Russia sought to promote anti-Trump protests after the election as a way of sowing discord in American society.
Russian operatives organized a rally titled “Trump is NOT my President” in New York City on Nov. 12, 2016, less than a week after the election, the indictment states.
Facebook ads turned over to the House Intelligence Committee last year showed that more than 16,000 people RSVP’d as attending the protest.
The indictment notes that the operatives organized a pro-Trump rally in New York the same day as the anti-Trump rally, although there is no indication that the pro-Trump rally was as successful as the anti-Trump rally, which had thousands of attendees, including left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore. The Guardian reported 10,000 attendees at the anti-Trump event.
The Russian operatives staged a similar anti-Trump rally, “Charlotte Against Trump,” a week later in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The Russian operatives sought to “promote discord in the United States and undermine confidence in democracy” by organizing the protests, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Friday.
Mueller’s indictment confirms what legal representatives for both Facebook and Twitter told a Senate panel on Oct. 31 last year: that Russian operatives sought to harm America by undermining public confidence in President Trump’s election.
