Unfortunately, for Hillary Clinton et al., her "Russian bots" slander was exposed earlier this year as a fraud, a hoax, a sham, as revealed in the NY Times and by Glenn Greenwald in The Intercept . It turns out to be ridiculously easy to fake a "Russian bot" presence and smear your political opponents, in this case one Judge Roy Moore of Alabama:

" NBC News, to smear Gabbard as a Kremlin favorite, relied on a group that it heralded as 'experts' without telling its audience about the major fraud which this firm just got caught perpetrating in order to, on behalf of the Democratic Party, fabricate claims of Kremlin interference in the Alabama Senate race (Greenwald). "

Fabrications. This company is "New Knowledge," and its head, Jonathan Morgan, was actually banned from Facebook for pulling this fraud:

" That fraud was overseen by New Knowledge's CEO, Jonathon Morgan... In other words, Morgan used his own fake Russian accounts to lie to the public and deceive the national media into believing that Kremlin-linked accounts were trying to defeat the Democratic Senate candidate when, in fact, the accounts he was citing were ones he himself had fabricated and controlled (Greenwald)."

The thoroughly debunked "Russian bots" smear against Major Tulsi Gabbard appeared in Greenwald's piece, "NBC News, to Claim Russia Supports Tulsi Gabbard, Relies on Firm Just Caught Fabricating Russia Data for the Democratic Party."

" Within a few days of Gabbard announcing her presidential bid, DisInfo 2018 , part of the cybersecurity firm New Knowledge, found that three of the top 15 URLs shared by the 800 social media accounts affiliated with known and suspected Russian propaganda operations directed at U.S. citizens were about Gabbard."

This was all but settled in February of 2019, until Hillary Clinton resurrected the smear last week.
