Exclusive: Alabama Attorney Explains How Democrats May Have Broken the Law to Defeat Roy Moore

Published

on

An Alabama attorney spoke with Big League Politics and explained how Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) benefitted from the social media hucksters at American Engagement Technologies to defeat Judge Roy Moore in the 2017 special election, breaking Alabama law in process.

“The advertisement section of [Fair Campaign Practices] Act (FCPA) requires accurate disclosure of campaign ads, including social media,” former Alabama criminal defense attorney Johnny Davis told Big League Politics. 

Davis, who now runs an international and Constitutional law consulting firm in the state, knew Moore during Moore’s tenure as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.

As reported, Silicon Valley billionaire and LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman donated $750,000 to American Engagement Technologies, a firm run by a former Google employee named Mickey Dickerson.

That firm distributed $100,000 of that money to a cybersecurity firm called New Knowledge, run by Jonathon Morgan. Morgan used the cash to flood Moore’s Twitter account with apparent Russian bots in an effort to connect the campaign to Russian “meddling” in the 2016 presidential election. He also created Facebook pages intended to cause strife between Republicans in Alabama and split the vote between Moore and a write-in candidate.

Moore lost the election by a mere 21,000 votes.

Alabama’s Attorney General Steve Marshall is looking into this fraudulent activity, but has not yet opened an official investigation into the matter.

So, is this practice illegal? According to Davis, the answer is unequivocally “yes.”

Davis said that the FCPA clearly spells out the rules for social media advertising, and that a campaign must make it clear when advertising on social media that who is funding the ads. According to Davis, Project Birmingham’s creation of opposition Facebook pages and apparently-Russian Twitter bots constitute advertising against the Moore campaign. But the actions were never disclosed as an opposition gimmick meant to take down the Moore campaign.

Morgan has denied running working in conjunction with the opposing campaign, describing his actions as “research.” But Morgan did influence the campaign via his verified Twitter account which has more than 10,000 followers, when he posted a Tweet linking Moore to Russia:

This Tweet send the media into a hysterical Russian “collusion” craze. When the New York Times originally reported on Morgan’s activities, it characterized them as an “experiment.” But BuzzFeed called that characterization into question in a Dec. 27 report.

“A copy of a confidential report about the Alabama effort, obtained by BuzzFeed News, raises new questions about whether the project was — as the Times said — an ‘experiment,’ or whether it was a straightforward Democratic attempt to replicate the model of the Russian Internet Research Agency,” BuzzFeed said.

Scott Shane, a Pulitzer Prize–winning New York Times national security reporter, was one of a handful of speakers at a meeting held in Washington in early September by American Engagement Technologies, according to an agenda obtained by BuzzFeed News. AET is run by Mikey Dickerson, who previously served in the Obama administration. The organization received $750,000 in funding that originated with Hoffman and spent approximately $100,000 of that on what was dubbed “Project Birmingham.”

During the meeting, Dickerson and Sara Hudson, a former Justice Department employee who now works for a company partly funded by Hoffman, detailed the results of their attempt to use social media and online ads to suppress Republican votes, “enrage” Democratic voters to help with turnout, and execute a “false flag” to hurt the campaign of Republican Roy Moore.

The Birmingham Project report states that between September and December of 2017 the group “ran a digital messaging operation to influence the outcome of the AL senate race.” It claims the effort contributed to high Democratic turnout and a drop in Republican turnout, and says that it “drove write-in votes to a number of candidates.” On one page it says its “sustained targeting” of Republican voters “had enormous effect” on turnout, though it does not back this up with relevant data.

Naturally, Jones has attempted to distance himself from Project Birmingham.

“Illegal influence operations are a serious threat to our democracy, regardless of where these activities originate or who they seek to support,” he said.

“Any coordination with these illegal activities will make the Jones campaign subject to both lawsuit and criminal prosecution,” Davis told BLP.

TRAITOR: Pro-ANTIFA Congressman Denver Riggleman Threatens to Vote for Joe Biden Over ‘Conspiracy Theories’

Riggleman was always a Never Trumper.

Published

on

Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA) is doing everything he can to prove the skeptics correct who said he was a Never Trumper that never cared about the Republican Party, just his own ego and bottom line.

Riggleman showed his extreme contempt for Trump-supporting patriots during a recent appearance on CNN, which the left-wing blog Blue Virginia was happy to cover. Riggleman said he would consider voting for Joe Biden unless President Donald Trump said conspiracy theories were bad, or something.

“I think there’s going to be a lot of people voting for [Libertarian] Jo Jorgensen or looking for somebody else right now…I want to vote for President Trump based on USMCA…but if he doesn’t come out and repudiate this type of insanity, it’s hard for military members like me to vote down that line; you have to vote for what’s right, and I’m going to look for integrity first…and if people don’t like it, I really don’t care,” Riggleman said while appearing on the fake news leader.

“I would consider [voting for Joe Biden]; I’m a free-thinking American…I think you’ve got to put people over party at some point…We have got to stop the insanity of conspiracy theories…that are anti-Semitic and are fictional…combines the ‘Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ with ‘Dr. Sleep’ from Stephen King; that’s ridiculous…I don’t even have the words,” he added.

Riggleman is enraged about the QAnon movement that is raising awareness of child sex trafficking and pedophiles within the highest levels of government. Interest in the movement has spiked due to the mysterious death of pervert Jeffrey Epstein along with the public release of thousands of court documents related to his pedo ring. This has resulted in Riggleman and other lawmakers springing into action to discredit the global movement that is putting predators in the spotlight.

Future congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has called out Riggleman’s transparent agenda. Riggleman refuses to condemn ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter terrorists who are waging war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution while bashing QAnon to score points with mainstream liberals.

After Riggleman’s humiliating defeat in Virginia’s 5th Congressional District GOP by Christian conservative Bob Good, the libertine lawmaker has dropped the veil and shown exactly how much he loathes President Trump and his supporters. He even pulled a Hillary Clinton after his loss and refused to accept that he lost fair and square, causing division within the Virginia Republican Party that may cost them elections.

“Voting irregularities and ballot stuffing has been reported in multiple counties in the #VA05. Voter fraud has been a hallmark of this nomination process and I will not stand for it,” Riggleman said following his loss, refusing to accept his failure gracefully.

“Republican Party of Virginia needs to reevaluate their priorities. We are evaluating all our options at this time,” he added.

Big League Politics has reported on Riggleman’s history as a Never Trumper, refusing to vote for the president in the 2016 election, and only acting like a Trump supporter when it benefited his political career:

Freshman Congressman Denver Riggleman (R-VA) is starting up his first re-election campaign, and he is counting on support from President Donald Trump to help him keep his 5th District Congressional seat. He even participated in a photo op earlier this month delivering paperwork to put Trump on the ballot for 2020 in the state of Virginia.

Riggleman has quickly gained a reputation as a Republican who will not stand for conservative values. He officiated a gay marriage, thumbing his nose at the Christian conservatives of Virginia who supported him, as one of his first high-profile moves as a sitting Congressman last year.

“My real belief is that government shouldn’t be involved in marriage at all, but if it is, everybody has to be treated equally before the law,” Riggleman told the Washington Post. “And that is part of our Republican creed. And it also comes down to love is love. I’m happy to join two people together who obviously love each other.”

Riggleman’s libertarian brand of politics also caused him to not support President Trump during his presidential campaign against Hillary Clinton in 2016. Riggleman called Trump a “buffoon” and said there was little difference between he and Hillary Clinton in a social media post shortly before the 2016 election.

“I will be writing myself in for President,” Riggleman declared with just a couple of weeks before the election.

In his post, Riggleman noted that he had “no problem with Trump being investigated by the media” before giving Clinton credit for having a “much better political machine” than Trump.

Riggleman is auditioning for a job on CNN right now. When he is out of Congress, he will not be missed by anyone except maybe the Koch network backers who he served.
