Terrified Democrats and Deep State operatives are working overtime to blame #ReleaseTheMemo on Russian trolls

Facebook and Twitter have found no “Russian troll” evidence.

The timeline of the ‘missing’ text messages spans a 5 month period which begins on December 14, 2016 and goes through to May 17, 2017, which happens to be the same day Robert Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel for the Trump-Russia collusion investigation.

“Jawdropping” text messages recently discovered have FBI agent Peter Strzok claiming that as far as Trump-Russia collusion is concerned “there’s no big there there”…and even more frightening messages have been discovered exposing a ‘secret society’ of folks within the Department of Justice and the FBI to include Page and Strzok, to be working against him [Donald Trump].”

One cannot fault US President Trump for taking to Twitter Tuesday morning to blast the text message scandal unfolding within the FBI and DOJ.

Trump tweeted…

“Where are the 50,000 important text messages between FBI lovers Lisa Page and Peter Strzok? Blaming Samsung!”

Zerohedge summarizes how a now terrified Democrat-Deep State cabal is working overtime to blame the entire #ReleaseTheMemo movement on, you guessed it, Russian trolls…

  • Last week, a four page memo detailing FBI abuse of FISA warrants against the Trump campaign was circulated within the US House of Representatives
  • Amid calls from several Congressional Republicans, the hashtag #ReleaseTheMemo immediately went viral
  • In an effort to downplay genuine public concern, a “Russian propaganda” tracking website used primarily by Democrats and Neoconservatives has suggested that #ReleaseTheMemo went viral thanks to Russian bots
  • California Reps. Dianne Feinstein and Adam Schiff sent a letter to Facebook and Twitter CEO’s on Tuesday, asking that they take action against the Russian scourge
  • Meanwhile, Twitter’s internal analysis of the hashtag has thus far found that authentic American accounts, not Russians, are driving #ReleaseTheMemo, according to The Daily Beast

Zerohedge further reports that despite 63 GOP lawmakers petitioning for the release of an explosive four-page memo detailing FISA warrant abuse against the Trump campaign, California Democrats Dianne Feinstein and Adam Schiff have fired off an embarrassing letter to the CEO’s of Twitter and Facebook, imploring the social media giants to take action against Russian bots pushing the hashtag #ReleaseTheMemo. (Feinstein, ironically, #ReleasedTheTranscripts of closed-door Congressional testimony by Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson in early January in an effort to influence public opinion).

According to Zerohedge, using information gleaned from the “Alliance for Securing Democracy” propaganda website which supposedly tracks 600 Twitter accounts “linked to Russian influence operations” and counts Neocon Bill Kristol as an advisor – the letter from Feinstein and Schiff reads in part:

Dear Mr. Dorsey and Mr. Zuckerberg:

We seek your companies’ urgent assistance. Public reports indicate that accounts linked to the Russian government are again exploiting Twitter and Facebook platforms in an effort to manipulate Public opinion. These recent Russian efforts are intended to influence congressional action and undermine Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation… 

we seek your assistance in our efforts to counter Russia’s continuing efforts to manipulate public opinion and undermine American democracy and the rule of law…

…Several Twitter hashtags, including #ReleaseTheMemo, calling for release of these talking points attacking the Mueller investigation were born in the hours after the Committee vote. According to the German Marshall Fund’s Alliance for Securing Democracy, this effort gained the immediate attention and assistance of social media accounts linked to Russian influence operations. By Friday, January 19, 2018, the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag was “the top trending hashtag among Twitter accounts believed to be operated by Kremlin-linked groups.” Its use had “increased by 286,700 percent” and was being used “100 times more than any other hashtag” by accounts linked to Russian influence campaigns. These accounts are also promoting an offer by WikiLeaks to pay up to $1 million to anyone who leaks this classified partisan memo.

If these reports are accurate, we are witnessing an ongoing attack by the Russian government through Kremlin-linked social media actors…

…We understand Facebook at Twitter have developed significant expertise in identifying inauthentic and malicious accounts. Further, your forensic investigations into Russian government exploitation of your platforms during the 2016 U.S. election have helped expose to the American public the vast extend of Russia’s covert influence efforts. We therefore request that your companies conduct an in-depth forensic examination of this real-time activity on your platforms…”

The Daily Beast refutes Alliance for Securing Democracy’s claims noting that internal Twitter sources confirm the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag has been pushed by Americans.

a knowledgeable source says that Twitter’s internal analysis has thus far found that authentic American accounts, and not Russian imposters or automated bots, are driving #ReleaseTheMemo. There are no preliminary indications that the Twitter activity either driving the hashtag or engaging with it is either predominantly Russian.

In short, according to this source, who would not speak to The Daily Beast for attribution, the retweets are coming from inside the country.

The source pointed to influential American users on the right, including Donald Trump Jr., with his 2.49 million followers, pushing the hashtag forward. It’s become a favorite of far-right Republican congressmen, including Steve King, who claimed the still-secret memo shows the FBI was behaving “worse than Watergate” in one viral tweet. Mark Meadows called it an “absolutely shocking” display of “FISA abuses,” referring to a counterintelligence process.

Democrat Adam Schiff, who has pegged his entire career on the Trump-Russia collusion story, is in full panic mode…

GOP lawmakers (not Kremlin lawmakers) are aggressively pushing for the release of said memo…

Meanwhile, Senators Feinstein and Schiff are openly being mocked…

Feinstein and Schiff’s pathetic letter to Facebook and Twitter CEOs, begging them to pin the memo release movement on Russia…
