President Donald Trump has shared a link to an article that refers to "crimes of the Deep State" and claims "treasonous swamp rats" are trying to steal the 2020 election.

The article, shared by the president amid a flurry of election-linked retweets as he continues to claim the result was tainted by fraud, refers to attorney Sidney Powell's "Release the Kraken" comments at a recent Trump campaign press conference.

It suggests the Kraken is actually a "cyber warfare program" that tracks and "aquires [sic] evidence of nefarious activities and crimes committed by the Deep State." It adds that this has allowed Trump, alongside "loyal patriots" in the military and Space Command, to have gathered the evidence they need to prove his claims of fraud.
