On 16 February 2018 The Associated Press reported:
A year before Donald Trump announced his presidential candidacy, two Russian operatives landed in the United States to lay groundwork for an intelligence operation targeting the legitimacy of the 2016 election. What began as a Cold War-like attack by an old adversary would mix old-fashioned political agitation with 21st century social media tools that ultimately roiled the election and shook America's political landscape.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern government systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
The indictment of 13 Russians by special counsel Robert Mueller Friday (16 February) revealed that the now well-documented Russian social media campaign also relied on extensive intelligence work by operatives on U.S. soil. It also began earlier than commonly believed, first aiming to 'sow discord' ahead of the 2016 election and later to boost Trump's candidacy.
. . . To obfuscate their efforts, the operatives, working in concert with the Internet Research Agency, a St. Petersburg-based troll farm, purchased server space in the U.S. Using virtual private networks they could conduct their social media interactions while appearing to be based in the U.S.
They also relied on identity theft, stealing and then using the social security numbers, home addresses, and birthdates of real Americans without their knowledge, the indictment says.
