Similarities between RNC-sponsored data farm and Russian Facebook ads seems too close to be coincidence



iven what we know today, there are several important events in the Trump election timeline that deserve re-examination.

During an interview on Wednesday night with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, author Joshua Green revealed how he was invited into the data bunker of President Donald Trump’s inner sanctum during the final months of the 2016 presidential campaign.

Green, the author of “Devil’s Bargain,” explained that he and his colleagues were there so that the campaign could show off what they were doing.

Trump’s staff “wanted to show off they had different sources with opposing” scenarios, Green said. “They had a team of Cambridge [Analytica] scientists embedded in the Trump headquarters in San Diego doing sophisticated modeling work to help to inform where the campaign was going to send Donald Trump.”

The main locations identified by the CA team were Grand Rapids and Warren, Michigan, as well as Green Bay, Wisconsin. Perhaps not uncoincidentally, The New Yorker featured a story on October 31, 2016 asking why Trump was spending all of his time in those two states specifically.

“According to the polls, Donald Trump [had] been trailing Hillary Clinton badly in Michigan and Wisconsin for months,” reporter John Cassidy wrote at the time, citing two polls that showed Clinton in the lead by seven percentage points. He cited a third poll where the margin was six points. “It’s a similar story in Wisconsin, where the past three polls have shown Clinton ahead by four points, six points, and seven points.”

Cassidy then asked why –“with just more than a week left before Election Day — is Trump campaigning in these two states?” He said that it seemed smarter to him that Trump should be in places like Florida, Nevada, North Carolina and Ohio, where the polls were closer.

The Wall Street Journal also reported weeks before the election that the Trump campaign believed they could make inroads in those areas. They also claimed to “seek to create a bigger-than-expected turnout among Trump’s core demographic, and [they banked] on Democratic turnout being low.”

According to Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), the ads were generated by or linked to Moscow-linked bots — and tied to Michigan and Wisconsin. There were a few other ads in other states, but Burr specifically cited Michigan and Wisconsin.
