Your daily popcorn - FBI wiretapped Russian gambling ring headquartered in Trump Tower (2011-2013) & FBI investigating Breitbart and other conservative media

At some point my long-ass titles are going to break a GT rule, I think. Anyway - let’s get started.

FBI wiretapped Russian gambling ring headquarted at Trump Tower for two years

The FBI had a court-sanctioned warrant from 2011 to 2013 to monitor a Russian crime organization working out of a unit three floors below President Trump’s penthouse, according to an ABC News report.

Listening in on the Russians’ happenings resulted in more than 30 people being indicted in April 2013, with federal agents raiding the Trump Tower apartment. But the mastermind, Alimzhan Tokhtakhunov, got away and has since fled the United States justice system.


Poor Trump probably had no idea Russian mobsters were using his home like that! /s

FBI ‘investigating role of Breitbart and other right-wing websites in spreading fake news with bots’

The FBI is reportedly set to investigate right-wing news websites like Breitbart over allegations that they worked with Russian-backed operatives to disseminate stories favouring President Donald Trump.

Investigators are looking into whether agents used online “bots” to disseminate both real and fake news stories which supported the billionaire businessman across social media, at times when his campaign appeared to be struggling.

The Bureau suspects people working for Russia designed the bots – a type of software used to replicate simple activities online much faster than a human – to spread pro-Trump and anti-Clinton articles.

Again, this is stuff anyone with basic human intelligence could figure out. Well, except Trumpsters.

But I’m glad it’s being investigated. FINALLY - someone is going after these propaganda networks.
