Trump Team Sought Israeli Firm's Help to Defeat 'Bear'

A senior Trump campaign official approached an Israeli intelligence company for proposals on building a campaign involving fake social media accounts and social media manipulation to influence Republican party voters in a bid to help defeat then-candidate Donald Trump's rivals and afterwards Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016, the New York Times reported Tuesday. That's according to The New York Times, which reports Gates contacted Psy-Group, a company staffed by former Israeli intelligence agents, seeking ways to undermine Hillary Clinton's campaign.

Mueller's team has obtained copies of the proposals and questioned Psy-Group, the Times said, adding it was unclear whether the proposals would have violated laws governing foreign involvement in USA elections.

The messages would describe Mr. Cruz's "ulterior motives or hidden plans", or they would appear to come from former Cruz supporters or from influential individuals with the same background or ideology as a target.

Gates ultimately rejected the company's social media campaigns, according to the Times.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex., addresses the delegates during the third day session of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Wednesday, July 20, 2016. Last year, Rick Gates and his boss, Paul Manafort, were indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller's team on multiple counts of fraud and tax evasion. The meeting also included Blackwater founder Erik Prince and George Nader, the adviser to the UAE Crown Prince and the go-between for Prince's meeting in the Seychelles with a powerful Russian businessman.

A lawyer for Zamel denied to the Times that he had discussed the proposal with anyone from the Trump campaign.

Psy-Group created several secretive proposals for the Trump campaign at the behest of Rick Gates, who has since pleaded guilty and offered to cooperate with the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into foreign meddling in the USA election, The New York Times reported.

Psy-Group claimed that it would provide "all services in accordance with the laws and regulations of the country/ies in which they are conducted".
