Russians Promoted GOP Shutdown Talking Points on Twitter

“The White House branded the federal budget impasse… as the ‘Schumer Shutdown’ in its attempt to pin the blame on Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-NY). … But it wasn’t just Republicans using that phrase during the weekend government shutdown. Independent analysts said Twitter accounts linked to Russia have spread the same message.”

Publishing Plagiarized Propaganda

And you never seem to have enough,
Which is why he posted 1,000 Russian “news” articles without attribution.
