Re: anonymous coward
I would wager that just every major power and many of the minor ones engage is these types of disinformation campaigns. I would also wager these campaigns are generally a waste of money as they have very little effect on the target country. However, this one has succeeded because the Donkeys need an convenient excuse for why they lost other than they were idiots. The Russians did not tell Hildafelon not to campaign in Wisconsin or Pennsylvania; her inept staff did. Bubba (the ex P) tried to tell her and her incompetents she needed to make several swings in these states otherwise they might go for Blowhard. It would have also helped if the Donkeys had run a candidate that was not widely detested thus giving Blowhard votes he never would otherwise have gotten. These are self inflicted wounds.
