Russians not only ones screwing with US, it’s Americans

quote [ the whole fascinating thing, the Citizens United unleashed the Mercers, it unleashed a lot of powerful wealthy people. But this go-round this election cycle, it seems like it unleashed the Mercers on us, and this is really one of the first times that we're actually able to have an understanding of who they are, how they worked throughout this campaign, first backing Ted Cruz then switching over to Donald Trump ]

This is an important news story, missed by most main stream news.

WaPo did an extensive profile of the Mercers, focusing on their relationship with Steve Bannon right around the same time as the HuffPo piece. Both are very interesting reading.
