Russian government hackers penetrated the computer network of the Democratic National Committee and gained access to the entire database of opposition research on GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to committee officials and security experts who responded to the breach.This story is bullshit. Not the facts of it. I totally believe that the Russians penetrated the DNC computer system.
The intruders so thoroughly compromised the DNC’s system that they also were able to read all email and chat traffic, said DNC officials and the security experts.
The bullshit relates to what the authors are implying.
I don't think the Russians give a flying fuck about opposition research on Donald Trump.
I do think they have a serious hard on for the President and Hillary Clinton. I think they will do whatever it takes to embarrass the President and to kill the Clinton campaign.
Which leads me to what I think they're really up to. I think they have the goods on Hillary's server, and internal communication within the DNC.
If they release this news to a few of the European news organizations at a strategic time...like late Oct....then they could influence our election.
The weird thing is that the FBI had a chance to do the right thing, but they've dragged their feet for so long that there is no chance that they will actually indict Hillary because that would be seen as undue influence on the US political process. I'm guessing that the Justice Dept played a role in this protracted investigation...which means that its up to the Russians to inform the American people about one of their political candidates! Fucking AMAZING! The Russians are doing the job of the US Dept of Justice!
What I'm looking for isn't wrongdoing by Hillary. I consider that a given. What I want to know is how deep the corruption goes. How tied into our news media is the Democrat party? How much collusion is their between the political parties?
Many people see this breach of security as a bad thing. I see it as an opportunity to get a peek behind the curtain. Don't get me wrong. I'm not cheering the Russians. But in this instance I'm not exactly cursing them either!
