Rick Gates sought help from Israelis to create fake Internet identitiiesFormer Trump campaign adviser Rick Gates, who has pleaded guilty in Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation, sought proposals from an Israeli company in 2016 to create fake online identities in an effort to aid President Trump's campaign, The New York Times reported Monday.

Gates reportedly solicited plans to use social media manipulation and to gather intelligence to help Trump defeat his opponents in the Republican primary, as well as Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in the general election.

Gates sought a proposal from a company staffed by former Israeli intelligence officers, Psy-Group, to use fake identities to sway 5,000 Republican National Convention delegates by attacking Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), an opponent of Trump's at the time, according to the Times.

Mark Mazzetti, one of the Times reporters who authored the story, said Monday on CNN that the firm proposed using “40 to 50 people to create thousands of different identities — fake personas on Twitter, Facebook, et cetera.”
