An Israeli private intelligence firm produced three separate proposals to manipulate social media in the USA and spread misinformation for the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential elections, according to a new report. That's according to The New York Times, which reports Gates contacted Psy-Group, a company staffed by former Israeli intelligence agents, seeking ways to undermine Hillary Clinton's campaign.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex., addresses the delegates during the third day session of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Wednesday, July 20, 2016.
A senior Trump official solicited an Israeli intelligence firm to generate online propaganda for the 2016 presidential campaign to defeat Hillary Clinton.
Even if the Psy-Group's plans were ultimately discarded, Gates's solicitation of the company shows the Trump campaign's willingness to play dirty online.
Meanwhile Psy-Group would conduct opposition research, create a series of "intensive influence activities and campaigns" and "complementary intelligence activities" with the intention of exacerbating the political divide along party lines and within the Republican Party's supporters themselves. And he wanted to use social media to sow division and deepen rifts among the American electorate.
Zamel's lawyer tells the Times that the Trump Tower meeting was cursory.
That meeting, revealed in May by The Times, was also attended by George Nader, an emissary from the ruler of the United Arab Emirates, and by Erik Prince, a Republican donor and the founder of the private security company formerly known as Blackwater.
The Psy-Group owner only outlined for Trump Jr.
While there is no evidence that the plans were implemented, the fact that a Trump campaign official covertly sought to manipulate social media plays into the claim that Russian Federation used social media to help Trump.
Mueller's team has obtained copies of the proposals and questioned Psy-Group, the Times said, adding it was unclear whether the proposals would have violated laws governing foreign involvement in U.S. elections.
