Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, November 02, 2017

Former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn followed five Twitter accounts based out of the Russian-backed "troll factory" in St. Petersburg -- and pushed their messages at least three times in the month before the 2016 election. Over 2,750 troll accounts based out of the Kremlin-backed Internet Research Agency were made public by House investigators on Wednesday. The accounts, some of which had previously been identified by The Daily Beast as Russian-generated, were pulled from Twitter due to their ties to the troll factory over the past three months. The news that Flynn also pushed Russian propaganda comes at an unwelcome time for the former three-star general and head of the Defense Intelligence Agency. Flynn is one of the people under investigation by Robert Mueller's widespread probe into Russian influence in the 2016 campaign.

Maybe after all this we will finally start to treat elections seriously, but I doubt it.

There's just too much at stake in our pay to play system for moneyed interests not put in a bid for the candidates of their choice. Sometimes, both candidates.

And this is why the lesser of two evils is the best America can ever hope for.

Amazing:

Jenna Abrams, Russia's Clown Troll Princess, Duped the Mainstream Media and the World

Roseanne Barr and Michael McFaul argued with her on Twitter. BuzzFeed and The New York Times cited her tweets. But Jenna Abrams was the fictional creation of a Russian troll farm.

If Flynn isn't already under a secret indictment, his name is in Mueller's queue. Guaranteed!

A long time ago Flynn had publicly asked for immunity in exchange for testimony.

Amazing how the same people stupid enough to be influenced by the russians are the same people too stupid to understand how the russians interfered with our election.
