31. ... For example, starting in or around June 2016, Defendants and their co-conspirators, posing online as US persons, communicated with a real US person affiliated with a Texas-based grassroots organization. During the exchange, Defendants and their co-conspirators learned from the real US person that they should focus their activities on "purple states like Colorado, Virginia & Florida." After that exchange, Defendats and their co-conspirators commonly referred to targeting "purple states" in directing their effors. [p 13]

CORDAT: But it does beg the question, How is that these Russian operatives knew how to focus on purple states like Michigan and Wisconsin, and your campaign didn't?
