Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Yes, you did:
Besides, it seems that Russians tried to support Sanders against Clinton....
is a conclusory statement, a "claim". This claim does not refer to any facts other than your recall and opinion of Mr Sanders' repudiation of alleged illegal foreign political activities.
If Sanders had not explicitly condemned all of their actions, I would have been very uncomfortable with him, however much I liked the way he brought the political discourse leftwards.
"why should my post imply that an event did not occur?"
Your conclusory remarks do not refer to any facts which "seem" to represent either specific illegal political activity OR specific legal political activity during the US primary or general election period. Your "post" assigns significance to indeterminate events.

Events which I link (above) represent counterfactual arguments to your statement.

In fact "it seems" that "real US persons" tried to support Sanders against Clinton. There are additional factual arguments representing legitimate, contemporaneous, and significant "support" for Sanders against Clinton archived as well at eurotrib.com, not least of which are legal briefs and orders concerning Sanders' delegates litigation against DNC "political activities".

Now.

Say what you want. Respond to my comments if you will or not.

I'll not be silent on matters of measuring and assigning significance to speech, while US gov litigation against IRA seeks to define "meddling and interference" and restrict the scope of "political activity" anywhere at anytime to telecommunications produced only by "real US persons." Because I can.

Were the Special Counsel's prosecution of IRA trivial, illegal political activities to prevail here, US gov could in future indict and prosecute you, any commentary about US political candidates, and the owner(s) of eurotrib.com URL under FARA because none of you had registered your "real" persons as a foreign agent operating in the USA.

With the assistance of your national gov and EU gov statutes and law enforcement agents. Quid pro quo.

Don't think the next figure of US justice won't try.

"Your conclusory remarks do not refer to any facts which "seem" to represent either specific illegal political activity OR specific legal political activity during the US primary or general election period. Your "post" assigns significance to indeterminate events."

You claim to have an advantage over us of a lot of cumulative knowledge, so much so that you write with the implicit assumption that people have read a whole lot of documents, so it should have been a given that you were aware of the Mueller indictments.
Which are rather more researched than articles in the press.
Since you link to them, surely you have read them.

"Events which I link (above) represent counterfactual arguments to your statement. "

No they did not. That some American people were campaigning for Sanders (would anyone suggest otherwise?) is not a counterfactual to the suggestion that Russian bots smeared Clinton while deliberately not attacking him.

Sanders himself does not seem to deny it:
"https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2018/02/21/bernie_sanders_i_did_not_know_russian_bots_were_ promoting_my_campaign_real_question_is_about_clinton.html"

As for your fantasy that an organised operation, funded by people with very clear geopolitical interests, that pretends to be a huge number of US citizens posting on all sorts of social media, is in any way similar to a website where people, who at no point pose as what they are not and only post within its confines... well, you say you won't stop because you can, so I guess there is no point in commenting...
