In a recent State Department US intelligence review it has been disclosed that since 2014 russia has invested over $300 million to exert influence and sway elections worldwide. This figure is under estimated according to the report, and russia is increasing this amount for future elections.
One wonders how is this done? It occurs through cash, gifts, cryptocurrency, and electric fund transfers, however shell companies, organized crime, and think tanks are also used.
While these efforts have been studied and followed for years the intelligence community is now declassifying their work, and sharing this information worldwide.
Maybe this is what the orange prez was trying to hide at his resort?
