I started heading down the road of investigating this group ("Youth Against Sexual Violence") which was seemingly created to support Tara Reade.

I ran out of time to keep digging right now, but they seem to be entirely fictitious. Feel free to take this stuff and run with it!
Here is the breakdown of the Youth Against Sexual Violence group:

It's run by several supposed teens (Sophia, Anna/Anya/Jocelyn/Brian) They all have brand new accounts that are obsessed with Tara. And Tara even follows one of these kids.
This ⬇️ is the founder, Sophia Arnold, a sophomore in high school. Her Twitter account was created this month and she has 8 followers. They include the other members of the group and pro-Bernie account I had already blocked. She claims to love banana bread.

Can Russia Use the Coronavirus to Sow Discord Among Americans?
Close observers of Russian disinformation tactics in electoral interference have 2 big Qs as the 2020 election approaches: How large is the appetite for escalation among RIS this time around? And where was, and is, S.V.R., Russia’s counterpart to the C.I.A.?
The internal competition between Russian spy agencies is fierce, and SVR a potent and storied foreign intelligence agency, is widely recognized as more competent, stealthier, than Russia’s bumbling military spy agency, G.R.U.

This was the perfect opening for GOP/Kremlin bots/trolls to jump in, pretending to be #Resistance & sow division

And if I hadn’t seen it happen with my own eyes, I would’ve never believed we were so tribal
H/t: ⁦@ewarren…
I blame the two candidates (both of them) for not appreciating the stakes in this election.

We, their supporters, have put our time and energy into helping our candidate win. Some of us are bound to take the attacks personally.
But we shouldn’t.

We should realize Warren and Sanders are just people, after all.

We should realize that either one is better than Trump.

And that’s what this comes down to.

@PostOpinions Power Rankings- seem packed w Bernie Backers & ignores FACTS: Bernie is NOT a Democrat. He's a SOCIALIST who was, still is 1 of Russia's #activemeasures Ties to Kilimnik mentioned in Mueller report & 2 Mueller indictments, WHY ZERO mention of that? Shame on YOU. 1/
@PostOpinions 2/ Bernie voted FOR giving GUN MANUFACTURERS immunity from product liability law suits, AFTER Sandyhook. Supreme Court overturned that last fall, giving win to Sandyhook families. YOU DIDNT KNOW THAT? He votes against Russian sanctions, is an RT regular -except in this campaign.
@PostOpinions 3. You're too intellectually lazy to do research & only read, report what 's in your Beltway Bubble echo chamber, reducing you all to the laziest of that group whom you quoted in the article. @CillizzaCNN just parrots other talking heads & the echo chamber. Press did same in 2016

@SusanPage @costareports @michaelcrowley Feb. 16 indictment said, “engaged in operations primarily intended to communicate derogatory information about Hillary Clinton, to denigrate other candidates such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and to support Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump.”

The #MuellerReport reveals #Russia's sweeping subversion of US politics. It's only a piece of Putin's larger war. Here's a new guide to Russian #ActiveMeasures in #Ukraine—testing ground for Kremlin #disinformation warfare in US & Europe. #SurkovLeaks…
"Russia’s activity in Ukraine is a reinvention of 'active measures,' a form of political warfare pioneered by the SovietUnion. The strategy [uses] ‘reflexive control’, a…Soviet technique to manipulate an opponent into making decisions leading to their own defeat"
Remember how ppl wondered how Russians knew about swing states?
"the Kremlin conducted painstaking research into the intricacies of Ukrainian daily life to understand the Ukrainian world view and identify vulnerabilities that could be exploited. Then, using media, front groups…

The #LARPwars are in full swing. It's been wild since 2016 WikiLeak, #SethRich - what will happen next now that there's another election in sight? Not to mention an ever increasing number of court cases. #LARPindictments #UnsealTheLARPs
2. I'm making my way through Defango's 4 hour subpoena stream. Some gems already! I believe this is the wife of Defango's former attorney, who is representing Robert David Steele in his defamation suit against Jason Goodman. Note the date: same day as Port of Charleston #govLARP
3. Here's Tanya introducing RDS to her stoner buddy, Nora Maccoby. Her family are deeply involved in Dem politics, "would have known Seth Rich if he was real & she's never heard of him"
Nora "outed [Manafort] as working for Russians".

@AC360 Yes! Thank you Anderson. Charlottesville was NOT a protest about Civil War statues. It was the Unite the Right rally, organized by two @UVA grads, Jason Kessler and Richard Spencer, which brought neoNazis, Nazis, KKK, white supremacists, to the march. 1)
2) One thing that should be noted is that Charlottesville and the entire issue of Confederate statues are among 2016 and current Russian #ActiveMeasures @AC360 @AliVelshi When a second rally was attempted by Spencer in DC in 2018, without the extra “help” from the FSB, it flopped
3) But thank you for pointing out that the Unite the Right event in Charlottesville was about much more than the statue of Robert E. Lee. There was something malevolent in that gathering, genuine menace, pure unadulterated HATE, and evil. Thank you Anderson. @AC360

“His defining characteristic has always been his willingness to do anything and sacrifice any principle to amass power for himself. What separates him from the garden-variety politicians — what makes him a radical — are the lengths he is willing to go.”…
Here is the #NationalEmergency I am most concerned about this #PresidentsDay! Did I say "concerned"? Too polite! We are in a civil war, this time the slavery is for all-colored, political, social and economic. And the 1% has allied itself with raving lunatics to save their pork.
But lest we forget, there is a silver lining...

@ValentinoMuseum are you aware of Russian #ActiveMeasures ? Anything to incite divisions in our country. Stoking racial strife over Confederacy monuments is one of them. Charlottesville was a Russian AM. @RTDNEWS Who are we helping here? @VCUarts @VCU Think about it.
Russian #activemeasures helped Trump defeat @HillaryClinton in 2016. There’s a documentary on @ActMeasuresDoc on @iTunes Suggest everyone watch it.

1)Thread. BREAKING: Chinese intelligence-backed hackers penetrated the computer system of a U.S. law firm. #Cyberlaw #hackers #CyberAttacks #ActiveMeasures
@TrickFreee @tribelaw @BartSlawson @WillBenton1 @BillTilley
2) Attackers used stolen user credentials "possibly gained via a third-party supply chain compromise" to gain access to the firm's network in late 2017, before installing malware that allowed them to obtain user passwords.
#Cyberlaw #hackers #cyberattacks #ActiveMeasures
3) The unidentified law firm represented clients in the pharmaceutical, technology, electronics, biomedical & automotive sectors. The sensitive information law firms hold has made them prime targets for hackers in recent years. #Cyberlaw #hackers #CyberAttacks #ActiveMeasures

The ONLY reason @tedcruz and @GOPLeader are calling out Steve King, is because 2020. His visits with racist nationalists from Europe (Marine LePen, in side Trump Tower), never bothered them. His bringing racists to CA (Geert Wilders), never bothered them. @GOP is racist. Own it.
Steve King is trying to bring criminal racist Tommy Robinson from the British nationalist party, here. Why? He has drug convictions, starts riots, assaulted a police officer, and attempted to enter theUS on a fake passport. Why do we need this criminal here? Will @GOP stop this?
Perhaps @GOP should watch #ActiveMeasures documentary, to learn how Putin funds and supports “populist” movements - that Steve King and Dana Rohrabacher conspire with - to undermine law enforcement and governments in European countries. #YellowVests

1/ This "1Weesel" is a Kremlin troll, regardless of the substantive issues at hand. His job is to divide and reap chaos.

They told us @HillaryClinton was just as bad as @realDonaldTrump.

Hell, @SusanSarandon said she was worse.

She should really never open her mouth about politics again, ever.


U.S. to partners of U.N. LGBTQ staff: Get married, or get out… via @NBCNews
That anyone ever fell for that ridiculous lie is beyond disgraceful.

Even if Clinton were guilty of the types of corruption they claimed she was she would still not be comparable in this way to Donald Trump.

Not even close.

But she's clearly not.

As the nation braces itself for the @GOP's latest betrayal in the runup to the #BrettKavanaugh confirmation vote, it is becoming clearer that even those we once believed retained some recognizably moral standards, simply don't.

@SenatorCollins, @lisamurkowski--we see you.

#ActiveMeasures by Russian intelligence services are the tactical/operational component of Strategic Deception.

What is Strategic Deception?

It is not only deceiving an adversary at strategic level, but fundamentally altering how the adversary sees/thinks/acts.
The #counterintelligence challenge lies in not just the identification of penetrations, breaches, operations, and preventing/stopping them, but in understanding their purpose, manipulating them (not thru traditional law enforcement), and turning them back on the adversary.

Collusion is worse than a crime.
To debate whether Trump acted criminally is to miss the greater point: He’s a national security threat

“It’s a crime for a US presidential campaign knowingly to receive or even solicit anything of value from any foreign entity.”

“It’s a crime for anyone, camp’n or not, to knowingly receive stolen data.”

“receiving stolen data triggers a complex nexus of crimes, both state & fed.”

DonJr, Kush, Manafort & other top 45 aides met with Veselnitskaya RIS spy offering damaging info re HRC.


“CrossfireHurricane began with SIGINT supplied by NSA & allied intelligence services. This happened BEFORE any drunken boasting was tipped off to FBI. Some of this intelligence included suspicious money movements into US political campaigns...”
