Clinton-Connected Charlotte City Councilman Attended Rally Organized By Indicted Russians

In November 2016, a Charlotte City Councilman with ties to the Clintons attended a rally reportedly organized by Russian interests.

“Defendants and their co-conspirators organized a rally entitled ‘Charlotte Against Trump’, in Charlotte, North Carolina, held on or about November 19, 2016,” said an indictment by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III against 13 Russians, released on Feb. 16.

The indictment alleges that Russian special interests bought advertisements and created groups on social media to influence American voters in the 2016 presidential election.

Rafael E. “Ted” Cruz (R.-Tx.), and President Donald J. Trump. Unwitting Americans subsequently participated in those rallies.
