CNN delves here into people in the U.S.
who were used as stooges by the Russian campaign to help elect Donald Trump. Russians paid one man to build a cage to hold a likeness of an imprisoned Hillary Clinton.

Florine Gruen Goldfarb runs the Team Trump Broward County Facebook page, which posted numerous times about events that were promoted and encouraged by the Russians. Speaking to CNN on Sunday, she said she didn’t believe she was influenced by the Russians and said she thought that Friday’s indictment was a ploy to distract from the FBI’s mishandling of tip-offs it had received about the Parkland, Florida school shooter.
