Beginning in April, Russia’s Internet Research Agency purchases ads on social media condemning Hillary Clinton and supporting Donald Trump. Some of the ads target black voters.
Here are just a few of the ads, as discovered by investigators ahead of the Mueller indictment:
April 6, 2016 – Social media ad purchased by the Agency: “You know, a great number of black people support us saying that #HillaryClintonlsNotMyPresident.” The indictment includes several other such ads scattered over the course of 2016.
April 7, 2016 – Ad: “I say no to Hillary Clinton / I say no to manipulation”
April 19, 2016 – Ad: “JOIN our #HillaryClintonForPrison2016″
May 10, 2016 – Ad: “Donald wants to defeat terrorism… Hillary wants to sponsor it”
May 19, 2016 – Ad: “Vote Republican, vote Trump, and support the Second Amendment!”
May 24, 2016 – Ad: “Hillary Clinton Doesn’t Deserve the Black Vote”
