Shot: #SethRich conspiracy theory tied to Russian intelligence.

Chaser: Seth Rich conspiracy theorists @CassandraRules and @JackPosobiec spread a thread by @aaronjmate falsely suggesting that a US judge ruled the Internet Research Agency has nothing to do with the Kremlin.
Also note the path of propagation - the dubious IRA claim traveled through Syria chemical attack truther @DanielLMcAdams to reach Fairbanks, and Russia Today reporter @DanCohen3000 to reach Posobiec.
Footnote: since the duo of hyperkinetic trolls who latched onto this thread seems to be more interested in spamming already-debunked talking points and countering arguments no one is making, I have blocked them so that they may more effectively #KeepThatEchoChamberEchoing.

1/ Let’s talk about Alexandr Dugin, ‘The Fourth Political Theory’, ethno-nationalism, neo-Eurasianism and how these attempted theories relate to horseshoed American far right and far left wing ideologues and political operatives.

Cc: @A_G_Dugin
2/ Before we begin, I would like to take some time to introduce you to @A_G_Dugin
3/ @A_G_Dugin is best described as a Russian Alex Jones impostering his way through Heidegger, while concocting an “anti-globalist” yet very globalist philosophy.

He’s a meta-modern, angry white man, who fantasizes about Carthage’s destruction, like a teen boy video gamer.

Jens Stoltenberg's speech to Congress marking NATO's 70th anniversary drew bipartisan praise this week.

Rather than voice their support, Trump & Bernie—who have long shared Putin's goals of defunding & delegitimizing NATO—have focused their attacks on Biden, a staunch NATO ally.
America should stop “wasting tens of billions of dollars helping to defend Europe." -Bernie Sanders

“We protect countries, and take tremendous monetary hits on protecting countries. We lose, everywhere. We lose monetarily, everywhere." -Donald Trump

Meanwhile...

“I strongly support NATO. I believe it is the single most significant military alliance in the history of the world. And I think it's been the basis upon which we've been able to keep peace and stability for the past 70 years." -Joe Biden

Russian troll accounts purged by Twitter pushed Qanon, other conspiracies nbcnews.com/tech/social-me… via @NBCNews
A new batch of troll accounts identified by Twitter as having ties to Russia’s propaganda operation revealed an emphasis on promoting far-right conspiracy theories such as Qanon to Americans.
Twitter announced Thursday the removal of 418 accounts tied to the Kremlin-backed Internet Research Agency, the disinformation group whose employees were indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller last February for election interference.

The kook-right and kook-left are working hard to discredit Special Counsel Robert Mueller. This effort is being amplified by many of the usual (bot and troll) suspects.

Don’t worry, folks. Bob Mueller’s credibility is not in doubt. Certain people simply want you to think it is.
To be clear, this is “getting worse and worse” because Trumpers—along with Jason Leopold’s friends and apologists—are making it that way.

Ask them why. #Horseshoe

Truth is, after getting caught fabricating sources and stories in the past, what little credibility Jason Leopold has left is the result of his work pushing Kremlin propaganda outlets and figures like these.

Don’t buy the phony hype.
