💥RUSSIAN SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN
"Internet Research Agency (IRA) carried out earliest Russian Interference Operations identified by the investigation—a social media campaign designed to provoke & amplify political & social discord in U.S."
"At the same time that IRA operation began to focus on supporting candidate Trump in early 2016, Russian government employed a second form of interference: cyber intrusions (hacking) and releases of hacked materials damaging to the Clinton Campaign."
"The social media campaign and the GRU hacking operations coincided with a series of contacts between Trump Campaign officials and individuals with ties to the Russian government."
In reaching the charging decisions described in Volume I of the report, the Office determined whether the conduct it found amounted to a violation of federal criminal law chargeable under the Principles of Federal Prosecution."
