Ah, finally it comes out.  So, will the American Media recognize and accept that they were the real pawns and influencers in this grand production played by Russia?

Facebook announced today that its internal investigation revealed fake Russian accounts bought at least $100,000 of political ads during the 2016 election season. But rather than push any particular candidate or position, the ads seemed designed to push us farther apart.

By now you’re familiar with the news. Whether President Donald Trump was involved or not, and whether they actually affected the vote or not, it’s very clear that Russian operatives took part in the 2016 U.S. presidential election in a number of ways, including hacking into the Democratic National Committee’s emails, according to FBI, CIA, and NSA investigations.
