Sources are leaking more information about this morning’s report that a U.S. grand jury has indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for conspiring to defraud the United States, with additional charges of wire and bank fraud and aggravated identity theft.
One of the defendants, 28-year-old Richard Pinedo of California has pleaded guilty to identity fraud for helping Russian entities hack PayPal security and other online payment platforms.
Also among those charged is Yevgeny Prigozhin, a Russian oligarch known as Putin’s “chef” who financed the “Internet Research Agency” that waged “information warfare” on the U.S. electoral system during the 2016 presidential election to tip the outcome in favor of Donald Trump in exchange for lifting sanctions.

Founded in 2013, the Internet Research Agency sought to “sow discord” in the U.S. political system through social media and, by early 2016, began to support Trump’s campaign while slandering Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Many of the defendants posed as U.S. citizens to organize rallies, promote or troll the candidates of their choice, and cultivated “unwitting individuals” within Trump’s campaign and political activist groups.
The court documents elucidate how defendants created hundreds of social media accounts to develop fake “thought leaders” who could help them attack Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, in order to shift support in favor of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump.
Trump’s thin facade of legitimacy is receiving fatal blows from the Special Prosecutor that will topple his presidency and all who aided and abetted his treason.
