Okay; is there anyone here in the Tank over the age of 6 and with an IQ greater than 50 who believes that no major country ever interferes in another countries elections and politics?


Come on, any?

They all interfere. Of course major governments would prefer that certain people not run other countries.

Yes, we have absolutely done so in the past, much more than we've engaged in militarily-backed regime change. I have insufficient knowledge to talk about present tense.

What is different now is that algorithm-driven social media is an invention ideally suited for targeted propaganda manipulations, just as the cell phone was a wet dream for ubiquitous surveillance. The collective lack of appreciation of the implications of these near-universally-accepted inventions doesn't help.

How about....everyone doing what they are supposed to do prior to pulling the handle and doing their due diligence and researching the candidate instead of picking the talking head.

Russia has a long way to go to catch up to the United States given the number of elections we have influenced over the decades. Our history even goes so far as to actively support coups when leaders with whom we disagree are chosen--just ask Mohammad Mosaddegh, former Prime Minister of Iran in the early 1950s.

I am not saying Russia actually did interfere in our 2016 election but if they did we certainly deserved it.

The recent leak of documents to The Intercept about Russian attempts to hack voting systems in the United States came from Reality Leigh Winner, a contractor with Pluribus Inernational, an NSA subcontractor. She copied the documents, printed them, carried them out of her secure location, then sent them to The Intercept. Ms. Winner's social media profile indicates that she is avidly anti-Trump.

It is interesting to see some on The Left (check the DN! transcript) bending over backwards to both praise Ms. Winner for her leak yet also stating that she must be charged with a crime because they think "the public's right to know" outweighs keeping classified information classified. These are the same people who excoriated Julian Assange when WikiLeaks was releasing documents harmful to Hillary Clinton--they wanted him silenced.

Anyway, for someone working in intelligence Ms. Winner wasn't very intelligent. She printed the documents on a color printer...which uses very small tracking dots which identify the exact printer used as well as exactly when the document was printed. She also used a non-secure e-mail account to communicate with The Intercept before turning over the documents--it took the FBI less than a week to track her down.

Whoops, the Russians never hacked the DNC, it was actually a leak made to look like the Russians.

So it was a " Russian inside the DNC " hack job..... Razz
Data transfer at 22 MB's is more than a net transfer.. Shocked
Sounds like a HD to a memory stick transfer.
Which means that the "Hacker" was at a terminal on the DNC network
or directly accessing the server. Evil or Very Mad

Lets blame Bernie!!!!

As soon as more media sources learn of this analysis it can enter the general public's pool of information and we can finally put Russiagate behind us and move on to real topics.

Here is the analysis from The Forensicator.

Perhaps we should also revisit why that DNC staffer was killed. It wasn't a robbery and technically the case is still open.
