    Exclusive: Putin-linked think tank drew up plan to sway 2016 U.S. election

    This is confirmation of something we already suspected. If trump and friends colluded? That is treason.

    Exclusive: Putin-linked think tank drew up plan to sway 2016 U.S. election - documents

    A Russian government think tank controlled by Vladimir Putin developed a plan to swing the 2016 U.S. presidential election to Donald Trump and undermine voters’ faith in the American electoral system, three current and four former U.S. officials told Reuters.


    They described two confidential documents from the think tank as providing the framework and rationale for what U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded was an intensive effort by Russia to interfere with the Nov. 8 election. U.S. intelligence officials acquired the documents, which were prepared by the Moscow-based Russian Institute for Strategic Studies [en.riss.ru/], after the election.


    [...]

    Russia Today and Sputnik published anti-Clinton stories while pro-Kremlin bloggers prepared a Twitter campaign calling into question the fairness of an anticipated Clinton victory, according to a report by U.S. intelligence agencies on Russian interference in the election made public in January. [bit.ly/2kMiKSA]




    Trump was doing the same, preparing for his loss by saying the election was rigged against him while offering no evidence.

    It actually is not obvious, to me. But, yeah, if Trump conspired with them....
