President Trump has repeatedly called American news sites “fake news” in an attempt to undermine stories that are hurting his credibility.

What the president doesn’t mention is that Russia is suspected of blanketing social media with “fake news” as part of a disinformation campaign to help Trump get elected.

Now CNN reports that the FBI was monitoring social media on Election Day for viral “news” of conspiracies and hoaxes, primarily focused on Hillary Clinton. 

FBI cyber and counterintelligence analysts have identified user accounts behind what appeared to be a propaganda campaign based overseas to flood social media with “fake news.”

Faced with the growing threat of cybercrime, the FBI has turned to dogs to help crack down on computer crimes.

The canines are trained to sniff out electronic components that store data, News12 reports. Some of the components are tiny and hard to find.

“Cybercrime has evolved and is such a threat right now,” says the Newark FBI’s Michael Brodack.

Electronics are growingly important and can help investigators find evidence against suspects.

“It’s the gang member with a cellphone; it’s the terrorist who builds a bomb using electronic components, all of those are devices that Iris (a dog) is trained to detect,” says Phil Frigm, a supervisory special agent in the FBI’s cybercrime division.
