Report: Russia used Social Media ads to cast doubt on the legitimacy of Trump’s election victory​

According to Testimony from Facebook and Twitter Russia used Ads after the election to cast doubts on Trump’s election victory

Politico:

Top lawyers from Facebook and Twitter said Tuesday that Russian-linked posts and advertisements placed on the social networks after Election Day sought to sow doubt about President Donald Trump’s victory.

Facebook general counsel Colin Stretch told a Senate Judiciary panel that content generated by a Russian troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency after Nov. 8 centered on “fomenting discord about the validity of [Trump’s] election.” That’s a change from Russia’s pre-election activity, which was largely centered on trying to denigrate Hillary Clinton, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said in a January report.

This is just more evidence to support the fact that Trump didn’t collude with Russia during the campaign. It is clear that Russia’s meddling in our election had less to do with electing a certain candidate and more to do with further dividing our country. The left and Mainstream Media have fallen right into the trap Russia set and continue to let their attempts to enter our political discourse be a great success.
