    In Fight Over Russia Memo, Republicans Have Unusual Ally...Russia


    By Warren Strobel and Jonathan Landay

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican lawmakers criticizing Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into U.S. President Donald Trump's ties with Russia found themselves on Friday with an unusual - and perhaps unwelcome - ally.

    As Republicans called for the release of a classified memorandum that they say shows anti-Trump bias at the Justice Department, a network of Kremlin-controlled Twitter [TWTR.N]accounts swung into action to amplify that demand, according to specialists who monitor online activity sponsored by Moscow.

    The use of the hashtag #releasethememo increased 315,500 percent in roughly 24 hours on 600 Twitter accounts known or suspected to be under Kremlin influence, according to the Alliance for Securing Democracy, a project of the nonpartisan German Marshall Fund think tank.

    "I've never seen anything quite like it," said Bret Schafer, an analyst at the Alliance.

    So the GOP is still working with our national enemy to undermine the USA!

    Because Trump/GOP supporters ARE the missing link.

    Both Twitter and Facebook need to at least ban political ads, "until we can get this figured out" to borrow Trump's statement concerning foreign travelers.

    Actually a link is needed. You know saying something is not true on a forum like this with out backing it up with a link to support your statement is a big fail.
