We now know it’s the Russian military that deployed a chemical weapon in UK. The same agency that attacked US elections. Our govt is refusing to investigate deeper links. And it should terrify us all that only answers coming from citizen investigators

Thanks to Bellingcat we now know Skripal attack carried out by the GRU. Thanks to Mueller we know same agency hacked @HillaryClinton & DNC. And that Facebook, Insta etc subverted & weaponised. Extraordinary that UK govt is choosing to ignore. Point blank refusal to investigate

I cannot believe that law-&-order tories & national security tories are keeping quiet. Salisbury is heart of UK defence establishment. And Mueller has proved that in 2016 our public sphere was hijacked by hostile foreign power. Why wouldn’t the government investigate?

Anyway. Nice to pay homage to some key open-source investigators whose work underpinned Cambridge Analytica investigation (@podehaye pictured next to dragon he slayed). And thank a few of the many 100s on here doing such brilliant, helpful, important work. Dig on, people.
