Rick Gates, the former deputy chairman of the Trump Campaign was allegedly in contact with an Israeli intelligence firm about a social-media disinformation campaign targeted at Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton and to the benefit of Trump, according to the New York Times
Sputnik interviewed investigative journalist Max Blumenthal according to whom, Gates was approached by Zamel who is supposedly very well connected to the Israeli lobby in the US.
What we have here is one of a dizzying array of cases of Israeli direct interference in America’s political system and more specifically in the 2016 elections,” Blumenthal said.
The report that Gates attempted to work with an Israeli firm to create a pro-Trump “troll farm,” as reported by Sputnik, is the latest in the “Israelgate” saga. Sputnik also cited journalists who claim that “Israelgate” is much more substantial than “Russiagate.”
