If you run a website that doesn’t reflect the Progressive Hate Machine’s ideology, chances are you might be part of the Deep State’s “investigation,” or attempt to legitimize their fake news story that Russians robbed their queen, Hillary “I hate at least half of America” Clinton.
According to a report in McClatchey, Federal Investigators might just be probing your site for evidence that Russians are behind your efforts, because, you know, you have to be working with Putin if you’re not towing the Progressive Hate Machine’s party line.
Federal investigators are examining whether far-right news sites played any role last year in a Russian cyber operation that dramatically widened the reach of news stories — some fictional — that favored Donald Trump’s presidential bid, two people familiar with the inquiry say.
Operatives for Russia appear to have strategically timed the computer commands, known as “bots,” to blitz social media with links to the pro-Trump stories at times when the billionaire businessman was on the defensive in his race against Democrat Hillary Clinton, these sources said.

The bots’ end products were largely millions of Twitter and Facebook posts carrying links to stories on conservative internet sites such as Breitbart News and InfoWars, as well as on the Kremlin-backed RT News and Sputnik News, the sources said. Some of the stories were false or mixed fact and fiction, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the bot attacks are part of an FBI-led investigation into a multifaceted Russian operation to influence last year’s elections.
