Trump Staff Tied to Network to Scam His Own Supporters

A memo written for Special Counsel Robert Mueller was made public on Monday, April 2. It details the creation of a massive fake news network within days of former campaign manager Paul Manafort joining Trump’s campaign.

What follows will outline a series of coincidences which defy explanation. A post Tuesday details how Katrina Pierson, former Trump Campaign Spokeswoman, recently promoted to Trump’s 2020 Campaign Spokeswoman, has made significant sums of money by maintaining a relationship with a “ghost” contractor (Clifford S. Tang).

That this network launched days after Manafort, in addition to the existing Pierson relationship, may lead you to conclude campaign coordination and campaign finance laws were violated. This network is of such vast size and engaged in such egregious practices, that I, a Trump supporter, and other Trump supporters who have reviewed my work have mutually agreed immediate investigations must be initiated against members of Trump’s inner circle, among others.

In this article I will put forth records, screenshots, and background to compel investigation to verify the following:

  • A network of 18 million Facebook fans centralized around “TruthFeed” spread Russian military propaganda during the election and has a proven connection to top officials at the Trump campaign, definitively Katrina Pierson (we speculate 5+ top officials).
  • Katrina Pierson has a direct financial relationship with TruthFeed, screenshots attached prove she has made significant sums of money from her association with this fake news network.
  • The TruthFeed network went online within days of Manafort joining Trump’s campaign.
  • TruthFeed at present day is hosted on a LiquidWeb server with Pierson (Only 4 domains, 2 from TruthFeed, 1 Pierson).
  • Immediate questioning of “ghost” contractor Clifford S. Tang (network head) and Pierson is needed to determine if their relationship dated back to the campaign (violating campaign coordination laws).
  • Trump is likely unaware his own campaign officials made huge profit by prospectively funding and definitively profiting from “clickbait” stories often originating in Russia that were designed to mislead his own supporters.

We have attached as many records, screenshots, backups, and details on members of this network as possible after our team encountered a leak which subsequently resulted in the deletion of information further implicating Pierson.

The “network” currently estimated at 18 million Facebook fans, but which we assess may be exponentially larger, was utilized not to prove that Trump was the superior candidate but was a weaponized technological force, which on countless occasions spread stories designed to scare Trump’s own supporters. The TruthFeed network notably shared a story about “voter fraud in Broward County,” which was later found to be Russian disinformation in an indictment by Special Counsel Mueller. Despite the fact that the “network” was sharing Russian disinformation to Trump voters as a way to make a profit off of their fears, Pierson maintains an ongoing financial relationship with the network.

A report by a BuzzFeed reporter showed fake news stories receiving more attention on social media than stories of significance by legacy media.

It is now speculated that the TruthFeed network, which was prolific in its spread of fake news during the election, would have been exponentially more influential than the Wall Street Journal. Business records, detailed in the memo tie TruthFeed and Donald Trump For President as business partners through a mutual connection, thus we assess they are both “network”. These two pages encompassed but a small fraction of the network, however, the graph below, produced by BuzzFeed will give you an approximation of the influence of just a fraction of the network.

This investigation began after a Bloomberg reporter requested this reporter conduct an analysis of Facebook pages which were receiving disproportionate traffic despite a recent algorithm change which reduced the reach of political pages by up to 80% compared to February 2018.

The network, which exclusively targeted Trump supporters who became fans of the Facebook pages associated with Tang’s TruthFeed Network, filled their Facebook feeds with a constant barrage of information which was not merely “partisan” but which disregarded truth as a matter of habit so long as it would result in more website traffic.

It remains unknown how long Pierson has had a relationship with Tang, and no public comment has been made by her or her attorney, who previously threatened to sue Bloomberg over a story they wrote linking KatrinaPierson.com and TruthFeed together, a source revealed that the gist of the lawsuit was that since the article described the primary author of TruthFeed as a white supremacist, and subsequently mentioned Pierson’s name, it was implied she was a white supremacist. The details TruthFeed.com and TruthFeedNews.com domains are hosted on the same server as KatrinaPierson.com (the server only has 4 domains, 2 belong to Tang, 1 to Pierson, the other is random).

The memo to the Special Counsel speculates that top-level Trump campaign officials solicited a donor under auspices which remain unclear. Those funds were then somehow used to bring the network into inception. Tang, a primary actor within the network has gone to extensive lengths to remain anonymous.

Lawyers have been contracted and there exists no arrest records or photos of Tang. The only public record which exists of him is financial ties to film projects and property records in Los Angeles under his name. Though he is effectively a “ghost” due to the property records we speculate he is, in fact, a real person.

Extensive efforts were made to find the source of this constant stream of fake news which was objectively an act of hostility against the election. Researchers pulled a version of the 2016 TruthFeed website and, through observing the website code, a Facebook comments plugin had an ID attached to a Facebook account under the name “Clifford Satori.” This Facebook account maintains complete privacy, however, a single mistake led our team to assess that the “Satori” account is the account through which Clifford S. Tang operates his Facebook assets. His profile photo below is that of a Cliff (his name) and a background photo of the universe (Satori is Japanese for awakening), on speculation he is implying he is “on the edge of an awakening”.

The “Satori” account made the mistake of not closing off the public vision of the groups to which it’s connected. Those groups were created by the Facebook pages which, during the election, spread what has been definitively declared propaganda by the Russians. These “groups” contain lists of “Satori’s” (aka Tang’s) employees, whom this reporter suggests may be aware of information which the Special Counsel may find beneficial.

After the memo’s release sources came forward to verify certain facets of the story. Both a confidential source and a reporter at Buzzfeed confirmed that Paris Wade, owner of the page “Liberty Writers” had a foreign international as a business partner. The source also revealed that TruthFeed and LibertyWriters had an agreement known as “post sharing” in which pages share each other’s posts in order to both reduce workload and to mutually benefit from posts deemed successful. Thus, Pierson maintains a present-day relationship with Tang who previously held business relationships during the election with foreign actors.

While the exact nature and duration of the relationship between Pierson and Tang remain unknown, the facts as they stand establish that Pierson either has no knowledge of the fact that her “business partner” Tang not only spread Russian propaganda but also engaged in a propaganda campaign with foreign elements. These foreign elements through their disinformation practices are what one may, without being overzealous, call “enemies” of the democratic process, due to their disregard for the truth.

Roughly one month ago, one of the Facebook pages owned by Tang operated under the username “defendingtheusa.” Should a person have gone to “facebook.com/defendingtheusa,” you would have found a “network” page which was pointing regular traffic to Pierson.

Not only was there a Facebook page called “Defending The USA,” but there was also a Twitter account under the same name, “@defendingtheusa,” and a YouTube Channel under the name “Defending The USA.” Research by lawyers and technology experts have been unable to find any record of any formal organization under the name DefendingTheUSA or any iteration of it. Although it was presented to the public as what one would consider a Political Action Committee, it was merely a username chosen by a network agent.

DefendingTheUSA was used as a high response media asset to bolster Trump’s approval with African-Americans during a time in which he was polling low in that demographic. When a media report claimed that Trump was a racist, a day later on the YouTube channel of DefendingTheUSA, Lynne Patton, the current head of New York HUD, appeared in a viral video in which she put forth messages to counter public narratives against the allegation made.

Lynne Patton’s Twitter profile is a picture of her with Pierson.

There also exist many photos of them together, and the assertion that they are “close” does not seem improper. Patton was the front facing representative of media assets controlled by Tang.

Screenshots provided will show that DefendingTheUSA destroyed their Twitter account. Around this time, the Facebook page was “renamed” under the username “teamtrump2018.” The page’s name “USA Patriots For Donald Trump” remained the same. It was only a discrepancy observed in a tracking program which led to the observation of this name change.

Why they chose to destroy significant portions of the internet history of this organization remains speculative. The methodical destruction of the web history of a front-facing media asset utilized publicly by the campaign suggests that the problem may not have to do with the asset itself, but the way in which it was financed. Tang owns the Facebook page previously named “defendingtheusa” which is commensurate with this thought line.

Then-candidate Trump, Eric Trump, Kellyanne Conway, Dan Scavino and Michael Cohen engaged in habitual social media contact with “DefendingTheUSA.” Screenshots of these interactions are attached. DefendingTheUSA has had almost all trace of its existence save for its YouTube channel and the tweets screenshotted have been removed methodically.

The above “coincidences” and subsequent appearance of a cover-up increase the probability that campaign coordination may have occurred, and further campaign finance laws were prospectively skirted or violated. That these officials of Trump’s campaign acted with more malice than Russian propaganda agents, the latter who were under orders, and the former who have profited heavily from the lies they have told to Trump’s own supporters.

Further, if there was collusion of any kind with foreign actors, it seems as if this set of media assets would be fruitful to investigate.

As asserted in the memo, communication channels prospectively existed between the network and Trump campaign, it would have been incredibly easy to transfer data to the Trump team about visitors to the network’s site.

Using simple technology, such as Google Analytics or a Facebook Pixel, the network would have been able to track tens of millions of voters who it had manipulated to believe that incidents and threats existed which never did. The Trump campaign, should it have received this data, would have found these users to be of “high value” in that they were easily impressionable and would have been prime targets in what is known as “get out the vote” efforts.

The president promised to come to D.C. to “drain the swamp.” Based off of the above findings, an entirely different kind of swamp animal, with equal or greater disregard for the American people, exists in his inner circle.

Based off of the memo, our subsequent piece illustrating Pierson’s means of monetizing her relationship with the network, and the sources thereafter who came forward to verify assertions made in the memo, it seems overwhelmingly likely that something of an illegal nature took place here.

The above findings are collectively substantive and demand an urgent investigation. The President’s inner circle should be purged of actors who have performed malicious acts, and potential crimes, against the public.

The “TruthGate” architecture contains instructions on how to expedite your vetting process.

—- Update Friday April 13th 7:53 PM PST: Evidence not yet published on the website which analyzes code sequences has resulted in my assessment with a high probability that Pierson & Tang share advertising revenue from the same bank account. We assert this based off of a sequence of ad codes we found which we evaluated were generated within a 10 minute window from a company we are highly familiar with. We have also found matching Facebook App ID’s, Google Analytics tracking codes, Google Adsense ID’s which we have compiled into a color coded sheet which directly tie this network together, and in doing so tie Katrina into it. Additionally, we have found code strings which indicate a single tech worker managed these properties, the next step to take is to use the wayback machine, evaluate comparable coding irregularities in the TruthFeed network that existed in the iterations of the website leading up to the election, find the commonalities (as we did with the aforementioned ID’s) and thereafter run a program to detect these ID’s and code sequences across every domain which was documented to have been a traffic producing website during the campaign, by doing this it will reveal what is the “true” size of the network, which I continue to believe is 50-100 million fans, spread across dozens of Facebook pages and dozens of domains. — While aspects of this network have been destroyed or relocated subsequent to this report(in present day), they will be unable to alter the iterations which were logged in the way back machine. Furthermore, the data is likely still on the Facebook servers. The account identified as Clifford Sattori(Clifford S. Tang’s account he has as of now deactivated) will either have the bulk of the advertising spend on it, or it will be linked to an account in some form directly connected to it. With even a moderate amount of investigative effort this is truly a roadmap that has been made elementary to follow. I am requesting contact by the aforementioned parties, or others who are able to help me. I am a target of continuous harassment and threats.

Here is a brief sample of this new evidence:

There are similarities between a lot of the sites in the Truth Feed Network, specifically the ad, analytics and social application identifiers
One particularly perplexing correlation is the below article RevContent ad unit on KatrinaPierson.com and TruthFeedNews.com.
There are several identifiers on the ad code that strongly suggest that they were both generated within the same RevContent account.
The first one in ad code (rcjsload_1173de) is a unique identifier that it’s given when the widget is originally generated. Each unit has it’s own ‘rcjsload’ identifiernone of them are the same. Except in this case. The second one is the widget ID, which is an identifier for the particular ad unit. It’s a sequential ID number, in other words, if you created four in a row they would be, 1, 2, 3 and 4.
You’ll notice the second widget ID on both sites are only 2 digits apart (84704, 84705 and 84706). Meaning they were generated very close to each other. We estimate based off some tests within the RevContent ad platform that these three units (84704, 84705 and 84706) must have been created within no more than 10 minutes of each other.
The likelihood of these three units being generated in two or more accounts is very minimal. Which leads us to believe that they sit in the same RevContent account. The ‘rcjsload’ identifier on KatrinaPierson.com and TruthFeed.com should NOT match, the only reason that it does means that it was copy and pasted and only the widget ID’s were updated.
