Federal Communications Chairman (FCC) Ajit Pai said it was a “fact” that there was Russian interference in the public comments ahead of its controversial net neutrality vote last year, amid sparring between another commissioner about a lawsuit the agency is in the midst of.
The admittance was made in response to a lawsuit filed by the New York Times, who requested access to records surrounding the public comments that they argued would “shed light to the extent to which Russian nationals and agents of the Russian government have interfered with the agency notice-and-comment process about a topic of extensive public interest.”
The public comments left ahead of the FCC’s net neutrality vote have been at the center of much scrutiny—with millions of fraudulent comments (including the names of dead people and current members of Congress) being used.
One recent study recently found that of the real comments, nearly 100 percent were made in favor of the FCC keeping the existing net neutrality rules.
From the article:
"“Nearly eight million comments were filed from e-mail domains associated with FakeMailGenerator.com. On top of this, roughly half a million comments were filed from Russian e-mail addresses"
Note that if it was a fraudulent email address, it is by definition not attributable to its original author. Which is to say that is has no verifiable national origin without first determining the actual sender. Essentially the argument here is that a known documented fiction, should have one part of its content believed but not another part, and only in so far as it contributes to the current propaganda meme.

Huh? You might want to enroll in an ESL class, as your use of the language is nearly incomprehensible.
His English sucks, but his Russian is a lot better than yours.
His English isn't bad, but his abuse of the comma might be criminal.
Maybe you need to do the same...might be a comma splice, but it's perfectly understandable. What part are you having trouble with exactly?
