Fun fact: The @OANN reporter with the Russian accent who did this wildly misleading story filled with unsubstantiated claims that Trump has now referenced on Twitter moonlights for Russia's state-run propaganda and disinfo-peddling network @SputnikInt.

His name is Kristian Rouz and @kpoulsen profiled him here:  https://www.thedailybeast.com/oan-trumps-new-favorite-channel-employs-kremlin-paid-journalist 

FWIW, Sputnik called Rouz "a former contributor to Sputnik News" last year. But the outlet often doesn't publish bylines on articles. So, who knows.  https://sputniknews.com/us/201912031077477374-linguist-refutes-msnbc-host-maddows-defense-in-russian-propaganda-defamation-suit/
