Did Michael Moore unwittingly attend an anti-Trump rally allegedly organized by Russians?

It's no secret that filmmaker and Michigan native Michael Moore is not a fan of our current Commander-in-Chief. Throughout Trump's campaign, Moore was a vocal opponent, appearing at a number of anti-Trump rallies, including one near Trump Tower in New York City on Nov. 12.


No biggie, right? Well, on Friday prosecutors said 13 meddling Russians were not only behind pro-Trump rallies, but anti-Trump rallies as well, including a "Trump is NOT my President" rally in NYC "on or around Nov. 12," according to the indictment signed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

It's been widely reported that the indictment claims the goal of the meddling was to "sow discord in the U.S. political system, including the 2016 U.S. presidential election." It reads, in part, "Defendants and their coconspirators
used false U.S. personas to organize and coordinate U.S. political rallies in support of then president-elect Trump, while simultaneously using other false U.S. personas to organize and coordinate U.S. political rallies protesting the results of the 2016 U.S. presidential election."
