(CNSNews.com) – The Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia unsealed a criminal complaint on Friday that is based on an affidavit filed by FBI Special Agent David Holt that alleges that Russian Internet trolls created social media accounts for “U.S. fake personas,” who then advocated either liberal or conservative views about American politics and elections. Some-from the liberal side-defend Special Counsel Robert Mueller and even support his indictment of the alleged Russian operation itself. Jpg” width=”789″/>
On Feb. 16, 2018, when Mueller released an initial indictment of Russians interfering in U.S. elections, another “liberal” Russian-created American persona reposted a Tweet that celebrated that indictment.
“Yevgeniy Viktorovich Prigozhin is a Russian oligarch who is closely identified with Russian President Vladimir Putin,” it says. “Prigozhin began his career in the food and restaurant business and is sometimes referred to as ‘Putin’s Chef.’ Prigozhin controls Concord, which has been paid by the Russian government to feed school children and the military. Concord and Prigozhin spent significant funds to further the Project Lakhta operations.
“On February 16, 2018,” the complaint notes, “a grand jury in the District of Columbia returned an indictment charging thirteen Russian nationals and three Russian companies, including Prigozhin, the IRA, and Concord, with committing federal crimes while seeking to interfere with U.S. elections and political processes, including the 2016 presidential election.
