Moscow Becomes Republican Ally Over Mueller Memo
On Friday, Republican lawmakers criticizing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into U.S. President Donald Trump’s ties with Russia found themselves with an unusual ally.
According to specialists who monitor online activity sponsored by Moscow, 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 accounts swung into action to amplify that demand.
According to the Alliance for Securing Democracy, a project of the nonpartisan German Marshall Fund think tank, 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.
