CNN/Jack Delaney, an aspiring writer living in Brooklyn, New York, had his world turned upside down on Tuesday, when the 26-year-old found himself at the center of an apparent Russian plot to covertly insert itself into the American national conversation.

It all began in July when Delaney received a private message on Twitter from “Alex Lacusta,” who introduced himself as an editor with Peace Data, an independent leftwing online magazine.
The editor said he had seen some of Delaney’s pieces on other independent, mostly left-leaning sites and wanted to offer him a regular, paid column.
