The report details how Ukrainian lawmaker Andriy Derkach, who, according to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the US Treasury Department is a Russian agent, is disseminating false stories about Democratic nominee Joe Biden through congressmembers, lobbyists, the media, and people close to the president. Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani has been openly working with Derkach for several months.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow's call to defend American democracy likely didn't help as she sounded the alarm that "it's happening" and urged Americans to save democracy.
