The FBI has revealed that the Trump-hating, fake conservative group called the “Lincoln Project” fell for a Russian/Iranian disinformation campaign aimed at interfering with our 2020 elections.
On Thursday, the FBI announced that it had identified the interference effort created jointly by the Russians and the Iranians that consisted of emails sent to Democrats aimed at intimidating them into voting for Trump.
The emails were sent as if they were authored by members of the right-leaning activist group called The Proud Boys.
But so-called Lincoln Project seized on the emails helping the Russians and Iranians push the lie that they were sent by the Proud Boys.
The Lincoln Project tried to delete the tweet, but we have a screenshot of it, nonetheless:
But it was all a hoax and the fake Lincoln Project helped out enemies push their lies.
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said Iranian intelligence sent “spoof emails designed to intimidate voters, incite unrest and damage” President Donald Trump. He didn’t elaborate on how the effort would harm Trump since the emails were sent to Democratic voters, threatening them against voting for former Vice President Joe Biden.
The emails were first identified by law enforcement and elections officials in Florida and Alaska before being turned over to federal authorities, U.S. officials told The Washington Post earlier Wednesday.
“You will vote for Trump on Election Day or we will come after you,” the emails warned
The emails were purportedly sent by the Proud Boys, which were “in possession of all your information,” instructing voters to change their party registration and cast a vote for Trump.
It’s all just one more reason to dismiss and distrust anything said by anyone in this treacherous Lincoln Project.
