Russian election meddling is back, but this time in Africa

Russian election meddling is back, but this time in Africa 1


The Russian trolls are back — and once again trying to poison the political atmosphere in the United States ahead of this year's elections. But this time they are better disguised and more targeted, harder to identify and track. And they have found an unlikely home, far from Russia itself. CNN's Clarissa Ward reports.

    It’s amazing that no one ever talks about actually doing something about them.

      @Jeff Goddin Also, I noticed you conveniently couldn’t answer my questions.
      Why was it ok for the DNC to request dirt on Manafort and Trump from Ukraine during our 2016 election and why was it ok for Obama to use tax payers money to interfere in PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s re-election?
      Is it only ok for one side to seek foreign interference and not the other?
      Is it only ok for the US to interfere in others politics?
      If so, why?


    • @GROWN WOMAN you’re an idiot.

    • @GROWN WOMAN Trump is set to win. Turn off the caps , you’re broadcasting your stupidity here loud and clear.

    • @John Patrick Two separate subjects. And it sounds like we agree on both. No question America’s naive attempts to influence the domestic politics in other countries have backfired disastrously repeatedly throughout modern history. And not just the sneaky attempts, even direct sanctions have yet to produce results. But, that’s not a moral observation, but a practical one. Is there a moral reason why we shouldn’t attempt to interfere? Probably not. I’m not objecting to Russia’s efforts as a matter of principle, like, that’s not fair! play by the rules! I’m objecting because it’s not in our interest to allow them to interfere unchecked, and I’d like to see some robust counter-response. Now if only you’d clear the conspiracy theories out of your head, I think we could be friends. Also: I’m not a Democrat, and have never voted for one, and am not partial to Obama or Hillary. I’m partial to America and facts. And I can’t stand by when people disregard facts to the detriment of America’s security.

    Trolling: pitting one group against another ‘jest’ for one’s own personal amusement seems kind of mean.
    Not if it’s hilarious!
