Russiagate, prosecutor Muller incriminates the Russian troll factory

Contested interference in American political and electoral processes. For the first time the investigations directly affect Moscow


A kind of "Specter 2.0". Super Prosecutor Robert Mueller accuses three companies and 13 Russian "conspiracy" citizens for sowing divisions and chaos in American politics. It is the "Project Lakhta" launched in 2014 and culminated in the 2016 presidential elections. Objective: to support the candidacy of the outsiders, Donald Trump first, but also the Democratic senator Bernie Sanders, attacking mainly Hillary Clinton and the Republican senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. The Russians also had contacts with "representatives" of the Trump electoral committee who were, however, (and this is the key adjective in this phase) "unwitting", unaware of the identity of their interlocutors. The Russian interference did not go so far as to "alter" the result of 8 November 2016. Trump, therefore, He did not win because the hackers in Moscow put their cards down. Concepts repeated then in a brief press conference by the Deputy Minister of Justice, Rod Rosenstein, who specified: the investigation on the Russiagate goes on. Meanwhile, Trump, who until now had never fully recognized the Russian interference, goes to the collection with a tweet: "Russia began its anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced my candidacy. No impact on the election result. The Trump committee did nothing: no collusion! " Moscow reacts with a dry judgment of the foreign ministry spokesman: "All absurdity". Meanwhile, Trump, who until now had never fully recognized the Russian interference, goes to the collection with a tweet: "Russia began its anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced my candidacy. No impact on the election result. The Trump committee did nothing: no collusion!

The preliminary investigation of Mueller, 37 pages, therefore, fixes some passages of great importance, but not conclusive.
In the list of the offenders the most interesting character is Eugeny Prigozhin, who started from a hot-dog kiosk to become a catering boss and one of the oligarchs closest to Vladimir Putin. Prigozhin, with its St. Petersburg companies, «Concord Management» and «Consulting and Concord Catering», paid 1.2 million dollars a month to the Internet Research Agency Organization, the operating platform for disturbance maneuvers, the «troll factory », The provocateur factory via the Internet.
Since the beginning of 2014, Russian specialists have infiltrated social media, creating false identities due to American activists. In mid-2016 the "factory" runs at full capacity. The "conspiracy" moves on at least three levels. The base: formation of thematic groups in particular on Facebook and Instagram to shake and divide public opinion. Account such as Secured Borders , secured borders, or United Muslims of America or Army of Jesus, and so on. Initiatives conducted with skill: followers are hundreds of thousands.
The second development is on the territory. The agents of the «Project Lakhta» cross the country, from Nevada to Michigan, from Texas to Illinois, trying to gather information on the areas where the political battle is in the balance, as in Virginia, Colorado and Florida.
Finally the synthesis, with the third director. Campaigns of denigration and hatred against the candidates an expression of the establishment such as Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio or otherwise an obstacle to Donald Trump, like Ted Cruz. Some examples of the hashtags released: #TrumpTrain, # Trump2106, # Hillary4prison.
And we are at point 45 of the document, politically the most sensitive: "The accused used false identities to communicate with unwitting representatives, volunteers and supporters of the Trump campaign involved in local communities, as well as in the grassroots groups. ... The accused monitored the dissemination of their propaganda material through these channels ». Mueller's conclusion, therefore, is that "these" 13 Russians did not make an explicit pact with Trump to harm Hillary Clinton.
But the Russiagate is not finished. There is still much to explore. Beginning with the contacts between Michael Flynn, Donald Jr Trump and other figures referable to Moscow.
