Anyone following all of the political drama in the US will be aware of two things: 1) things are so messed up, you couldn’t write this kind of stuff for fiction and 2) the far right has been celebrating a memo (which no one seems to have seen by the way) outlining some dodgy practices in the FBI’s handling of the Russia Investigation.
Well, not the plot thickens…..or get’s weirder (you decide). It now appears that the hashtag #releasethememo which is used to highlight the FBI corruption around the investigation, is trending. It is not trending due to general popularity, instead, it would appear that the Russians are up to their tricks again.
According to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), they have asked Twitter and Facebook to investigate the significant rise in Russian activity around the hashtag campaign.
According to the memo:
“If these reports are accurate, we are witnessing an ongoing attack by the Russian government through Kremlin-linked social media actors directly acting to intervene and influence our democratic process.”
We will keep an eye on this one, if only out of morbid curiosity.
