Trump Team Sought Israeli Firm's Help to Defeat 'Bear'

Trump Team Sought Israeli Firm's Help to Defeat 'Bear'

The meeting allegedly took place in August 2016 after Donald Trump's top campaign aide, Rick Gates, requested proposals from Psy-Group to help defeat Republican primary opponents and Clinton with online manipulation.

There is no evidence the Trump campaign acted on any of the alleged proposals, which would have forced Psy-Group to double in size, hiring an additional 50 staff.

That same month, Mueller indicted 13 Russians and three companies in connection with a wide-ranging, multimillion-dollar enterprise to interfere with and "sow discord" in the American political system using social media.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex., addresses the delegates during the third day session of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Wednesday, July 20, 2016.

While Gates ultimately rejected the proposals, according to the Monday report, Psy-Group head Joel Zamel apparently outlined the idea to Trump's son Donald Trump Jr.at a August 3, 2016 meeting at Trump Tower in Manhattan.

SpaceX rocket launch causes social media stir in Southern California
This facility, which SpaceX leases from the Air Force, used to feature two launch pads, known as SLC-4 East and SLC-4 West. Social media went into a frenzy in Southern California Sunday night after odd lights appeared to cross the evening sky.

"Mr Zamel never pitched, or otherwise discussed, any of Psy-Group's proposals relating to the United States elections with anyone related to the Trump campaign, including not with Donald Trump Jr., except for outlining the capabilities of some of his companies in general terms", Zamel's lawyer, Marc Mukasey, said in a statement as cited by The Times. Another proposal describes opposition research and "complementary intelligence activities" about Mrs. Clinton and people close to her, according to copies of the proposals obtained by The New York Times and interviews with four people involved in creating the documents.

Psy-Group claimed that it would provide "all services in accordance with the laws and regulations of the country/ies in which they are conducted".

Robert Mueller is looking into the Trump campaign's discussions with an Israeli intelligence firm to go after opponents in the 2016 election campaign, reports the New York Times.

After scouring social media accounts and all other available information to compile a dossier on the psychology of any persuadable delegate, more than 40 Psy-Group employees would use "authentic looking" fake online identities to bombard up to 2,500 targets with specially tailored messages meant to win them over to Mr. Trump.
