Russian bots?
More worried about Soros leftist bots as we KNOW he and probably the DNC have paid posters on forums and their activists to stir up trouble at Trump rallies and conservative speeches. We know Twitter, Facebook, and You Tube are shadowbanning conservatives. These leftists have much more power and influence than Russian bots.

It's one of their most effective tactics and putin/Moscow couldn't be more pleased.

Why would Russian BOTS be trying to upset Trump, Vlad's good buddy?

We all know facts are not required and often discouraged in TrumpLandia.

BTW, when did snopes become a left wing site? LOL
Since Republicans decided that anything factual is 'left wing'.

Can you prove any poster here is paid to post?

No shortage of sensational thread titles to go around.

No shortage of disconnects between the thread title and the link.

That you are concerned only about “ Leftists” says more about you than your target.

Here's the thing everyone. It's not Russia's purpose to promote Right Wing politics. It's Russia's purpose to get us to fight among ourselves as Americans. Also, any lie or idea that get's us to doubt American leadership (on both sides of the aisle) is a win win for Russia. Keep this in mind as we argue daily on this and other public forums.

What will it be next.
As I understand it, the primary objective of so called Russian Bots was/ is to create division, distrust and chaos to demonstrate US democracy is inferior.

By the way, this is why we have checks and balances built into the US Constitution. Human beings have a tendency to become corrupt when entrusted with power. You may have heard the phrase: "Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Exactly correct, but it seems that your (I assume you support Trump) wants to break those checks and balances down, but his attacks on the media, the law enforcement and intelligence communities. No source needed, just look at his twitter feed.

Anyone who is advocating blind trust of any individual or group of individuals should definitely not be trusted. Of course the people who are doing that are almost entirely among the relentlessly lying and hugely divisive and manipulative Democrat left. Trump: "I am the only one who can fix it."

As far as the 'Cheeto' comments in your post, you just make yourself look like a troll when you do that. Just FYI. 100% agree with you here. Not necessary or helpful.

Yup. Go back and look at all the more virulent anti-Trump posters here on CD who dropped out the second Trump was elected. What ether did they vanish into?

He met with a woman who happened to be Russian. It was not "the Russians," as you know very well. Also, no information changed hands, as you also know very well. However, even if it did, there is no crime in receiving dirt on your political opponents, unless it is knowingly and willingly obtained from a foreign government or its agents, of which none were involved here in this instance.

In fact, it was Hillary Clinton and the DNC who paid for a smear document on Trump based in collaboration with Russian intelligence operatives, who provided the smear stories. Unlike your allegations, all of this is well documented and publicly established in no uncertain terms.

But let Mueller finish his investigation, by all means. That will exonerate Trump and establish the falseness of the assertions that Trump conspired with the Russians to steal the election from Hillary Clinton.

In fact, the Democrat left and their supporters in the mass media have aggressively tried to delegitimize our democratic process and wrongfully overthrow a duly elected president as the most spectacular political scandal in US history, with no other even coming close.

You people did that and you must be held accountable.

You don't need those when you have conservative radio/TV and liberal talk shows, and now mainstream media. By design, they're like the Morton Downey, Phil Donahue, Sally Jessey Raphael, etc. of the 90's to the present where they ham it up to build up audiences. You have the same crap on here with the idiots who are trying to garner clicks like the very first post. They have very little content to say, nothing original or insightful if they do share content, and the majority of the text is making accusatory remarks about conservatives or liberals in order to elicit a response or up the view count.
