1) Disturbing to me in #Mueller indictments was allegation of #Russia plant of #IaCaucus #Fraud stories. That broke the back of the party in #Iowa 4 2016 cycle. Caused mass party switches to independent in some parts of #IA. Remember #DemExit? #TrumpRussia #IaPolitics #IaDem
When #DemExit on #twitter & #FB was ongoing, I had a face2face discussion in #Fairfield of voter registration changes at the #JeffersonCounty court house. There were quite a few -- a direct consequence of #Bernie people being angry cuz they had seen SM fraud stories. #IaPolitics
3) I really saw damage from #TrumpRussia #IaCaucusFraud allegations in Oct 2016 going door-to-door in #Fairfield. The #DemVoter lists were "squishy." Lots of changed parties, lots of discussion of the #IaCaucus allegations of fraud and not voting #IaDem. #Mueller #iapolitics
5) The #TrumpRussia social media #FakeNews abt #IaCaucus fraud, as alleged in #MuellerIndictments broke the back of the party in #Iowa. At a minimum, statewide, I think it caused #IaDems to lose the state Senate, ,& created statewide blowout for #TrumpGOP. #iapolitics #IaLegis
6) Conclusion: #WeWuzRobbed! The #MuellerIndictments indicate #FakeNews#IaCaucusFraud allegations were promoted by #RussiaBots. Did it break the back of #IaDem election effort by causing division in the party? Yes. Did we lose badly in #Iowa cuz of it? Yes. #IaPolitics #Mueller
7) read this entire thread to get my take on the impact of #TrumpRussia #IaCaucusFraud #FakeNews on the 2016 election in Iowa.#MuellerIndictments #Mueller #ialegis #iapolitics #IaDem #IaGOP #IaCaucus @DMRegister
8) Even now, the follow on from the #TrumpRussia #FakeNews on #IaCaucusFraud social media is a move to end #IaCaucus. I do think that that this push will die down some as the news from the #Muellerindictments spreads. #IaCaucus #iapolitics #Mueller
