Democrat Russian Collusion: Michael Moore Involved In Russian Sponsored Anti-Trump Rally
According to information released last Friday by Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, progressive filmmaker Michael Moore participated in an anti-Trump protest in New York that was organized by the Russians.
Moore has long accused President Trump of colluding with Russians. He previously posted videos and pictures of himself participating in the protest in Manhattan that was organized by Russians in November 2016.
Throughout Trump’s campaign, Moore was a vocal opponent, appearing at a number of anti-Trump rallies.

Special counsel Robert Mueller announced last week the indictment of 13 Russian nationals who ran the Internet Research Agency, a shell-company used to sow political discord and undermine American democracy. The agency originally sought to discredit Hillary Clinton, but after Trump won election, the agency worked to undermine him.
The agency did most of their work online, but they also helped organize rallies nationwide. Authorities believe Moore was a part of one those rallies, an anti-Trump rally in November 2016.
According to Fox News, the government said the Russian operatives organized the Nov. 12, 2016, “Trump is NOT my President” rally in New York City. Mueller said the goal of the rally was to “sow discord in the U.S. political system.”
The protest included a march from Union Square to Trump Tower, which is a distance of about 40 blocks in Manhattan. It was one of the many rallies hosted in the days after the election to protest the then-president-elect. There were similar rallies in other major cities nationwide.
Approximately 25,000 protesters turned out in New York for the rally, chanting slogans rejecting the then-president-elect according to New York Police Department estimates.
Moore posted about his experience at the rally on social media, including a picture of himself posing with fellow anti-Trump protesters:

Rush Limbaugh discussed Moore’s ‘collusion’:
One week after the election, the same troll farm began promoting anti-Trump rallies. “He’s not our president” rallies. The Russians actually organized a massive “he’s not our president” rally one week after the election. And guess who promoted it? CNN. MSNBC. Michael Moore. These three and other leftist organizations became tools, useful idiots of the Russian troll farm.
The Russians converted American news networks into agents, advancing their agenda of provoking discord in the American political system. And MSNBC and CNN had no idea that it was a Russian thing. They thought it was grassroots Americans. CNN and MSNBC both thought that this was real anti-Trump hatred and real anti-Trump protests. There were ads that were placed on social media. These ads encouraged people to show up and Michael Moore retweeted these ads. CNN and MSNBC promoted these ads.
Brian, let’s switch to that one right there. “Not my president.” Put this one on the Dittocam or switch it over there. This is a tweet. I took a screenshot of “Not my president.” You can see Trump there with a red X drawn through his face. This is a Russian sponsored rally and a Russian ad that was retweeted by Michael Moore, and the networks were all promoting this before it happened, all excited, CNN and MSNBC all excited this thing was happening. This is a Russian operation you’re looking at right there after the election.

The indictment proclaimed that there were no Americans wittingly participating. I guess Moore gets a pass for collusion, but not hypocrisy.
“There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity,” Rosenstein said, adding there “there is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election.”
FBI Director Chris Wray and Rosenstein briefed the President on the indictments at the White House on Friday morning, a White House official said.
“President Donald J. Trump has been fully briefed on this matter. He is glad to see the Special Counsel’s investigation further indicates — that there was NO COLLUSION between the Trump campaign and Russia and that the outcome of the election was not changed or affected,” the White House said in a statement.
