Democrats Demand Twitter, Facebook Crackdown On #ReleaseTheMemo "Russian Bots", There Is Just One Problem...

  • 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

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).

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..." 

That said, contrary to the ASD's Russophobic website, by The Daily Beast claims  that internal Twitter sources confirm that the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag has been pushed by actual 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.

And then there's this:

Meanwhile, the Kremlin's reach must know no bounds - as GOP lawmakers have been fervently pushing for the release of said memo...

In response to the Democrats' latest attempt at diversion, people are mocking Feinstein and Schiff, as they should:

Pathetic indeed. The letter can be read in its entirety below:

Blatant, arrogant, illegal, in-your-face corruption and sedition and obstruction of justice.

Is there no respect left for the American voter?  

Feinstein, have you no shame?  Do you call yourself a representative of the people and an upholder of the rule of law?

It will be interesting when Feinstein and Schiff's alternate reality comes head to head with the rule of law - which is pretty inevitable now. Definitive head explosions all round in the MSM and Democrat roach motel.

To whit:

In 1981, Oscar López Rivera, a Puerto Rican Nationalist and Vietnam war veteran, was convicted and sentenced to 70 years in prison for seditious conspiracy and various other offenses.

 

Unlike others, I am pretty sure there will be perp walks - this shit cannot be erased from the US psyche unless there is some serious jail time (and McCabe's pension flying south). I have a theory that come the day of reckoning, when the cabal (or their minions like Strzock, Page and Ohr at least - let's not be too optimistic) are facing a judge and asked on charges of sedition, they will all plead temporary insanity due to Trump Derangement Syndrome*.

 

Trust me. It will be their only out.

 

*Conveniently diagnosed, after discovery and publishing of said condition in the American Medical Journal. Probably by some Harvard quack in their psych dept.

Weird how the quite openly paid hasbara trolls never merit a mention in the lying (((press))), nor does the fact that it was Israeli, not Russian ‘meddling’ thus far exposed by Mueller’s absurd witch hunt.

And it seems to be Jews, front and center, fomenting the anti-Russian hysterics, beyond partisan politics...

Now someone tell me how dimz can't be described as fucking commies...

Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State. 

...I'll wait ;-)

Clinton's most likely illegal alien housekeeper got to read and send classified documents. So why doesn't some congressman just send the memo to Sean Hannity.

Comey made losing, deleting, mishandling classified data a non issue.

Until the bitch hangs, there is no classified.

This hasn't made the news but you can find it on "whatreallyhappened.com", scroll down a ways until you find it.

In 1985 the head housekeeper of the Clintons was "mysteriously" let go. She had no family so it was assumed she just moved on to greener pastures. Last week, she was found in a shallow grave in Arkansas where she had been buried for over 30 years. Here's the kicker, she had been wrapped so tight in plastic that her DNA was still intact. Her DNA and that of her unborn baby, who they also retrieved a sample from. So, here we go, is it possible that this DNA will turn up to be Bill Clintons? How fucking sweet would that be?

IDK about that story but other women who Bill was either screwing or raping have been killed.  They have killed so many people that you can't even keep track.  I am sure he knocked somebody up eventually and you know damn well that they would kill them, as they have countless others.  These people are like the American version of Caligula.  Bill is tied to two child traffickers.  They ran drugs for the spooks.  Pray that whatever this is gets exposed, both for the children that the organized criminals have taken and the whole planet.  It is so mind blowing but I guess it shouldn't be because evil is evil.  I don't think they are the same thing as us.  The psychopath, NPD and sociopath are not human, or at least their souls aren't.

They need to compare the unborn child's DNA with Danny Williams, the man who claims he is Bill Clinton's son born of his prostitute mother.  If that turned out to be a match, then that should be ample evidence to get a search warrant to take Bill Clinton's blood sample and to make him the prime suspect in this murder.
