Yes, Russians tried to interfere in a US election in 2016, by using social media and by planting phony stories.
2) #Russia #socialmedia #phonystories #Hillary #HillaryClinton
If you look at what was planted, it is clear they wanted #HillaryClinton to be elected POTUS, because what was planted followed the left’s agenda of convincing the voters that Trump & the “right” was going to divide Americans & that #Trump was all sorts of #Negative things. 3)
But what #Russians did via social media and providing one campaign with a #dossier of lies was because they had no access to other means of interfering. Other nations have been using other means of influencing American elections for 100 years or more. 4) #electionmeddling #Russia
Since the 1920’s European Governments have lobbied in Washington for their interests, interfering in the US process, threatening at times, making payoffs and deals at times. And they still do.

When #DonaldRumsfeld suggested in 2001 that it was time for Europe to pay for its own defense & that US rents on bases in Europe should be discontinued, Germany, France, the UK & others active used every means they could to influence the USA...6) #Europe #payforowndefense
...not to make any changes that would deny Europe of more than $300B in money annually. That is being repeated now as well, everything from trying to influence individual politicians, to threatening US businesses so that they would lobby Washington. 7) #EuropelobbyingWashington
Do not underestimate the influence foreign governments have on US politics. 8) #foreignlobbying #USpolitics
And the US is far from guilty when it comes to trying to influence foreign elections. The Truman Admin interfered in elections in Europe in the past WWII period, especially in Italy & Greece, picking favorites. 9) #Truman #USlobbying #ElectionMeddling #Europe #Italy #Greece
In the 50’s, John Foster Dulles under Eisenhower, actively interfered in Latin American political issues from Argentina to Venezuela, to Cuba, as well as involving the USA in events in Vietnam which created problems for later. 10) #Eisenhower #LatinAmerica #Vietnam #Cuba
In the 1990’s, the Clinton Admin bombed Serbia to help create a second Albanian state called Kosovo, led by terrorists that were financed by Muslim organizations.

And in the Obama Admin, this went on steroids, favoring Muslim Brotherhood Control in Egypt & Turkey, bombing Lybia, leaving chaos and a Muslim Brotherhood-controlled regime in place,...12) #MuslimBrotherhood #Egypt #Turkey #Lybia #Chaos
...following the EU’s interference in creating a coup in Ukraine & financial & manpower support interfering for the left in an Israeli election. & this is just a short list.

Something to think about. 13) #EUInterference #Ukraine #Left #IsraeliElection
