Jill Stein, Bernie Sanders under fire as Russian indictments reopen old wounds for Democrats

The feud over whether Jill Stein and Bernie Sanders helped sink Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid re-erupted after the Russian indictment found that the trolling operation tried to boost their 2016 election prospects along with those of Donald Trump.

The indictment of 13 Russian nationals and three entities released Friday found that they were working behind the scenes on behalf of Mr. Sanders during the Democratic presidential primary and Ms. Stein, the Green Party’s candidate for president.

“By 2016, Defendants and their co-conspirators used their fictitious online personas to interfere with the 2016 U.S. presidential election,” said the 37-page indictment from special counsel Robert Mueller.

“They engaged in operations primarily intended to communicate derogatory information about Hillary Clinton, to denigrate other candidates such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and to support Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump,” said the document.

Days before the November 2016 election, a Russian-run Instagram account called “Blacktivist” posted the message, “Choose peace and vote for Jill Stein. Trust me, it’s not a wasted vote,” according to the indictment.

    Russia has been trying to screw up the US government for over a half century. If you look at the many incidents down thru the years it’s evident that they keep trying.
    This time they seem to have hit a nerve with the Steele dossier. Not only did they provide Steele with propaganda for the dossier, they got the Clinton campaign & the DNC to pay for it.
    To top it off, the FBI & Department of Justice, it’s obvious, used that same propaganda to initiate spying on a presidential campaign & then appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the elected President.
    I would say that the Kremlin hit pay dirt this time around by exploiting personal biases in our intelligence system.
    We have only scratched the surface on this stinking mess & I fear that we will find that it isn’t confined to Russia but also extends to the DOJ & FBI management as well
