isn't it? The same corporate media outlets, journalists and pundits
that were all in for Hillary, are now trying to convince the country
that a poorly run, hardly seen Russian troll campaign is grounds for
reversing the election, and launching a war with a nuclear power. This
is insanely irresponsible.

according to FEC filings Clinton's CTR PAC disbursed $9,617,828.28 in
2016. Most interesting is that CTR PAC listed $0 for expenditures,
other than $4k in filing and administrative costs.
Brock spent $10 million dollars and claimed it wasn't part of any
normally listed campaign expenditure. He spent $10M on sock accounts,
trolls and paying off mods on social media. That’s nearly a factor of
ten times more than what has been claimed the 13 indicted Russians

on Republicans. They helped flood social media with dank memes, and
virulent messages, aimed at Blue Check moderates, who reacted so
poorly. CTR/OfA socks also promoted the more fringe characters on the
alt-right, pushed down the less extreme, and helped smear alt-lite
