Now we can see why they initially tried to keep a lid on the content of the infamous "Russia-linked" social media advertisements. Today, while grilling representatives of Google, Facebook, and Twitter, the Senate Intelligence Committee released a number of social media ads they claim were taken out by "Russia-linked" accounts for the purpose of interfering in the US electoral process.
The ads were supposed to have swayed Americans away from Hillary and toward Trump...or undermined our confidence in democracy...or...well something bad! But the truth is they were so strange and even funny that one might be led to believe someone is having a giant joke on everyone who is pushing the "Russia meddled" story.
Twitter erupted in laughter at what we are told was a sophisticated Russian operation targeting the American electoral system.
But the absurdity is unfortunately lost on a few dead-enders, namely a majority of the US Congress and seemingly all of the mainstream US media.
To these two groups, the following seemingly-unrelated advertisements taken out on social media were clearly part of an extraordinarily sophisticated and successful Russian intelligence operation to massively sway American public opinion.
