According to a report in the news magazine Spiegel, an Israeli company is manipulating elections worldwide. Who exactly is behind the company is still unknown. International research in which Der Spiegel was involved shows that the secret company apparently controls fake news campaigns and hacks high-ranking politicians. All this for money and to influence elections for the clients.
The head of the company is an ex-soldier with the code name “Jorge”, it says in the mirror. That’s why the secret company calls itself “Team Jorge”. It attacks politicians with hacking tools and runs large-scale campaigns of disinformation and lies for its clients.
