Pro-Trump operatives coordinated viral #StopTheSteal events. Facebook shut them down.

In 2019, a group of right-wing political operatives promoted a fundraising website to build a section of border wall, and the site later became the subject of a money-laundering investigation. Now those same operatives are behind a Facebook group dedicated to delegitimizing election results that don’t favor President Trump, which went viral Thursday.

Microsoft isn’t just taking the stage at the big CES conference next year, it’s helping to actually power the stage, as the Consumer Technology Association announced Monday that it has selected the tech giant as its technology partner for the all-digital event.
