A signature trait of Russian President Vladimir Putin "is his ability to convince people of outright falsehoods," said William Evanina, director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, while declining to comment on whether U.S. intelligence is investigating a possible Russian campaign to undermine Biden.

"In America, they're using social media and many other tools to inflame social divisions, promote conspiracy theories and sow distrust in our democracy and elections," Evanina said in a statement. "As we look ahead to 2020, one thing I can guarantee is they'll keep up their influence campaigns and utilize new vectors of disinformation."

Damn skippy. Putin's got Trump believing that he honestly won the Electoral College in 2016. Dude is better than Kreskin.

Joe Biden got 83k a month funneled to his idiot crackhead kid for preferential political treatment.

I think Joe should be assessing whether Joe is undermining Joe.

Joe is in a tailspin in Iowa, his meeting @ DesMoines Register...

"Look what's going on in Venezuela right now...
Millions of people are crossing the border destabilizing Bolivia."" @JoeBiden

Bolivia does not share a border with Venezuela, the two are separated by 700 miles of the Amazon rainforest.

I'm wondering which Democratic nominee Russia is supporting in the primary by attempting to damage Biden in this way.
