Timeline of Alleged Democrat-Ukrainian Meddling in 2016 Election
As we rapidly approach Campaign 2020, Democrats and Republicans have fired up a new debate about which foreign entities tried to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Both sides agree that Russian interests made attempts to meddle in the 2016 campaign. Special counsel Robert Mueller wasn’t able to connect any Americans to the alleged scheme, but filed a case against 13 Russians. He charged that they were instructed to write social media posts opposing Clinton and “to support Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump.” Although it hasn’t been widely reported, Mueller also testified there were instances of Russian social media support for Hillary Clinton as well. But there’s widespread disagreement on the role Ukraine may have had in U.S. election interference in 2016.
