Can't make this stuff up: Russians planning pro-Trump rallies wired money to an unwitting "real U.S. person" to pay for "a cage large enough to hold an actress depicting Clinton in a prison uniform." Count 77, Mueller indictment. 
Seeking maximum discord, Russians played both sides of U.S. political divide, per Mueller indictment Count 57. Using "false U.S. personas," they organized a pro-Trump rally in NY Nov. 12, 2016, and a "Trump is NOT my president" rally same city, same day. 
They know us too well. Per Mueller indictment, Russians carefully monitored fake Facebook, Twitter accounts, tracking "audience metrics," reposts, likes, retweets, etc., and preaching best practices to maximize reach. 
Russian election meddlers used Facebook to organize two campaign rallies in NY in July 2016, one called "March for Trump," the other "Down with Hillary." Count 54, p. 21, of Mueller indictment. 
"Hillary is a Satan," "Hillary Doesn't Deserve the Black Vote," "Donald wants to defeat terrorism ... Hillary wants to sponsor it." These were among Russian-paid political ads on social media, per count 50 of Mueller indictment (p. 20).
