Israeli psych-ops firm diagrammed dirty Trump tricks in PowerPoint presentation — and Mueller has a copy

Published

on

An Israel-based private intelligence firm made a Power Point presentation in which it appears to have bragged about the ways in which it used social media dirty tricks to help the Trump campaign, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The presentation was uploaded and featured pages on making fake news sites, using “avatar seeding” to get fake news in front of groups and infiltrating opposition to seed discord, such as using a pro-Bernie Sanders Facebook group to radicalize supporters against Hillary Clinton.

The nine-page presentation, which the Journal uploaded, was marked with the words “confidential” and “do not circulate.”

The report says that Robert Mueller’s investigators have a copy of the presentation about how Donald Trump’s 2016 election was helped by fake news and fake social-media accounts.

As the paper writes, “it is unclear how much of the presentation consists of the firm’s analysis of online activity during the campaign and how much is a hypothetical pitch.”

The presentation discusses how “bots” and fake news sites energized Trump voters. A slide called ‘Trump Campaign Components’ shows how ‘fake news sites/avatars/content’ were created during the early part of the election year and leveraged to spread ‘uncertainty’ during the heat of the campaign.
