This is the language not of journalism in search of truth but of a cult. She had been trained in “information campaigns and how to resist them.” Those information campaigns would be run by The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, ABC News, CBS News, NBC News…and, yes, CNN. It wasn’t facts that led her to the conclusion but knowing “many people who voted for Trump,” as if it were impossible that many good people could have voted for Donald Trump and been unaware that his campaign had been working with Russians. That you know and love people who voted for Trump only proves that you know and love people who voted for Trump. The irony of this is that while the Mueller Report did not charge Trump or his campaign with criminal conspiracy, it did uncover the largest effort in American history by a hostile foreign power to influence the selection of our commander in chief. That was the actual “information campaign,” and it is a profound and deeply troubling revelation that is ignored by those eager to celebrate that Donald Trump was not indicted. The Russians’ intelligence agents working through the blandly named Internet Research Agency (IRA) referred to their efforts as “information warfare.” From the Mueller Report:

The IRA later used social media accounts and interest groups to sow discord in the U.S. political system through what it termed “information warfare.” The campaign evolved from a generalized program designed in 2014 and 2015 to undermine the U.S. electoral system, to a targeted operation that by early 2016 favored candidate Trump and disparaged candidate Clinton. The IRA’s operation also included the purchase of political advertisements on social media in the names of U.S. persons and entities, as well as the staging of political rallies inside the United States.29
