According to the Washington Post, U.S. officials have announced that Russia is trying to help the Presidential Campaign of socialist Bernie Sanders in the 2020 election.
Will there be a special counsel investigation? Since he’s a Democrat, probably not.
Regardless, here is the breaking news report:
U.S. officials have told Sen. Bernie Sanders that Russia is attempting to help his presidential campaign as part of an effort to interfere with the Democratic contest, according to people familiar with the matter.
President Trump and lawmakers on Capitol Hill have also been informed about the Russian assistance to the Vermont senator, according to people familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence.
It is not clear what form that Russian assistance has taken. U.S. prosecutors found a Russian effort in 2016 to use social media to boost Sanders’s campaign against Hillary Clinton, part of a broader effort to hurt Clinton, sow dissension in the American electorate and ultimately help elect Donald Trump.
When asked about this matter, a spokesperson for the Sanders campaign declined to comment on the briefing by U.S. officials.
