Because it makes since to try to hobble us: "The House Committee on Science Space and Technology released a report on Thursday detailing how Russia has been using social media platforms to disrupt domestic energy markets and influence domestic energy policies. The 21-page report includes Russian posts on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, some with photographs and slogans. “The committee began investigating Russian attempts to influence U.S. energy markets in the summer of 2017 when Chairman [Lamar] Smith wrote [to] the Secretary of Treasury regarding Russia’s intricate money-laundering scheme. Russian-sponsored agents funneled money to U.S. environmental organizations in an attempt to portray energy companies in a negative way and disrupt domestic energy markets,” the report states. “Upon discovering that Russia may have exploited American social media platforms to accomplish its disruptive objectives, the committee broadened the scope of its investigation,” the report outlines. “On September 26, 2017, the Committee requested data from Facebook and Twitter as part of this expanded investigation.” The documents social media companies provided to the committee confirm Russia’s influence peddling, according to the report." http://www.breitbart.com/big-govern...ting-pipeline-protests-climate-change-debate/ So many of the lefty causes that we believe harm our country are being supported by the Russians. That should tell you a lot about what is good for our country and what is bad. Chances are pretty good if the Russians promote something it is bad for the US. Let that be a lesson when you lefties keep trying to tear Trump down because of claims of collusion and support for Mueller's endless and limitless "investigation". Russia is laughing right now at how gullible the left and media are, thinking to themselves: "Boy this is easy."
