The Paid Russian Ads on Facebook By the Indicted Are Ridiculous and Bipartisan


Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee released examples of Facebook ads paid for by Russian actors during this afternoon’s hearing with Facebook, Google and Twitter. Ads were displayed in the hearing room to drive home their concern about foreign governments “weaponizing” social media content.

The details: According to the metadata attached to the ads, they targeted both Republicans and Democrats and were paid for in rubles. The ads were intended to stoke discord on divisive issues such as religion, racial issues and immigration.

Facebook’s chief lawyer said Wednesday afternoon that the company had not found overlap between the targeting used by Russian trolls meddling in the 2016 election and the Trump campaign…


Now more than ever I realize Mueller has NOTHING.

Wait, no, he has something. A cache of crap.

  1. to quote James Comey, “thats it?”
    millions of dollars and FBI time gets us 3rd rate ads? I really thought russkies would’ve done better.

    goes beyond nothingburger to a nothing Whopper

  2. The FBI is looking like they couldn’t find their way out of the bottom, of an open paper bag, laying in its side, with exit signs all over the inside, pointing to the wide open end.

    Not even if there were a dozen democRAT congress persons building a fire at the open end, threatening to burn everything up.

  3. Rob Goldman (Facebook’s VP of Advertising) said “The majority of the Russian ad spend happened AFTER the election. We shared that fact, but very few outlets have covered it because it doesn’t align with the main media narrative of Tump (sic) and the election.”

    Stay away from Fort Marcy Park, Rob.

  4. Part of me laughs at how stupid this looks on Muller chasing 13 juvenile trolls,
    But when charges are brought on free speech issues it should make us all pay attention.

    ……”All appear to borrow from the now-discredited “honest services” theories Mueller’s team previously used in corporate and bribery cases, cases the Supreme Court overturned for their unconstitutional vagueness. The indictment raises serious issues under the free speech clause of the First Amendment and due process rights under the Fifth Amendment.“

  5. Mueller may not ever get Trump, but he had great success in feeding the narrative; Now every natural uprising in support of conservatism, every grassroots effort in support of conservative policies, will be dismissed by the left and their media as AstroTurf, Russian bot propaganda. There will be no need to pay any attention to our side, because we are all Russians now.

    When China makes a big move that totally catches the Left off-guard, because they were obsessed with Russia, don’t be surprised. Everything is unexpected by the Left. Just be glad to know that Trump is giving China the gimlet eye and preparing us for something bigger than a grimy, little propaganda war started by desperate has-beens for their own petty, pointless reasons.

  6. If this story is not entertainment or “Onion” type satire, the Dumbing Down of Former USA is completed. Batten down the hatches, people.

  7. When will the so called ” Dreamers” be indicted for meddling in our political process? They are lobbying congress as well as threatening elected officials.

  8. Russia isn’t our main enemy – our politicians and elitists are the main enemy. Just as Hillary Clinton and the left did after the election, Mueller is engaged in trying to find a bad guy for people to focus on instead of looking at the Democrat party. Russia fits this role well because we don’t have the economic ties to Russia that we do with China, and because Mueller seems heavily influenced by cold-war era James Bond movies.

  9. My wife watched Democrat shill mouthpiece CBS News last night, I caught the piece where they were breathless, apoplectic even, that this all proves Russian interference in the election is threatening our democracy. And that President Trump was proven wrong when he called it all a hoax. They played the Trump soundbite and brought Democrat “experts” on to tout how wrong Trump was.
    You and I look at this and immediately realize IT IS A HOAX.
    But CBS, the Washington Post, the NY Times are all spending valuable air space and front page headlines touting this as a big deal, and that the Trump Administration is somehow negligent for not making this nothingburger a bigger deal that needs fixed.
