The Alliance For Securing Democracy is popping up in the mainstream press during the President Trump impeachment saga to offer supposed expertise on Russian disinformation. Though presented in the mainstream media as a credible source of punditry, Alliance For Securing Democracy is actually a group of bipartisan anti-Trump neocon/neoliberal operatives closely linked to the Deep State.

Are Bill Kristol and Michael Chertoff the “conservatives” the mainstream media has in mind when calling this a bipartisan organization? Or maybe it's David Kramer, the former McCain aide who testified in a libel suit that a “BuzzFeed reporter took photos of [the Steele] dossier pages without his knowledge”?
Either way, the mainstream media is perfectly happy to quote them as objective experts on those darn “meddling Russians” whenever the need for an interference narrative arises.
One of the example citations is from an article published by the Washington Post: "The GRU campaign ‘demonstrates that there are a lot of targets that can be attacked by those who would interfere in our elections,’ said Laura Rosenberger, director of the Alliance for Securing Democracy, which tracks Russian disinformation efforts. “We should expect to see more of these reports.”

Another appears in the New York Times: “‘You don’t actually have to breach an election system in order to create the public impression that you have,’ said Laura Rosenberger, director of the Alliance for Securing Democracy, which tracks Russian disinformation efforts.”
