The people actually pushing the Russian agenda are those who push the conspiracy theories, since that serves Russia’s purpose of pushing chaos and attacking our electoral process.

An official spokesperson for the Democratic National Committee pushed a conspiracy theory that Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah) decided not to run for reelection in 2018 because he is being blackmailed by Russia.
Adrienne Watson is the acting deputy communications director at the DNC, and a former spokesperson for David Brock’s Correct the Record super PAC and Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign.
After Chaffetz announced he would not seek reelection in 2018, Watson directed her Twitter followers to a tweet from Louise Mensch that said her “sources” told her there was compromising material, or “kompromat,” on the Utah congressman.
