Congressional and Justice Department investigators are now probing whether the digital campaign operation run by Trump son-in-law and top adviser Jared Kushner helped Russia target U.S. voters with fake news stories about Hillary Clinton, according to a new report.
…material from the Russian government that “would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to [his] father,” Trump Jr. replied, “‘If it’s what you say, I love it especially later in the summer.”
Schiff observed, “He’s already talking about timing. So if there was any kind of coordination on the timing of the pushing of either negative stories or false stories by Russian social media trolls then that’s something that we need to know.”
…Russia’s apparent ability “to target states and levels of voters that the Democrats weren’t even aware (of) really raises some questions. How did they know to go to that level of detail in those kinds of jurisdictions?”
…Warner found it noteworthy that the Russians were able to target women and African Americans in Wisconsin and Michigan, while Democrats were “too brain-dead to realize those states were even in play.” Clinton ended up losing Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
