Russian hacking?

Postby dru708 » Sun Dec 11, 2016

Did Russia 'interfere' in the election process? Thru leaks, fake news, etc.

Extraordinary claims demand extraordinary proof. I haven't seen any proof, just assertions from the spooks <sarc> and they're super-trustworthy</sarc> The CIA says the Russians hacked the DNC and RNC and only released the DNC stuff to Wikileaks. Assange says the Ruskies aren't the source of the DNC stuff and the RNC says they weren't hacked.

Show me some proof or it's just smoke.

Dru, you forgot the "Who the fluff knows" option in your poll so I didn't vote.

I need a "who the fluff knows" option too. I have searched and searched and I simply cannot find an unbiased report about it. Kinda scary. If the CIA, FBI, POTUS, ... anyone ... wants me to believe anything like this, I'll need to see it. They're gonna need to take me through the entire "this is how we know" trail. Otherwise its just a media soundbite.

Is fake news something like Hillary saying she got off a plane under sniper fire? :pop:

I agree. Mr. Trump and his Twitter Army do not, however.

In light of the 150 terabytes of child porn confiscated in Norway (that the American media is trying to cover like a cat that pooped on linoleum)...I'm guessing The NY Times is setting the stage for "Russian hackers planted all this child porn to frame our leaders".

I might be wrong, but my BS detector is usually pretty good.

Ya I had thought about the 'who the fluff knows' option.

I was really thinking about a 'gut' reaction.

What about the "false flag" possibility that John Bolton mentioned? Why would Russia leave any "fingerprints" that would lead the hack to them? Maybe a member much smarter than I can explain if it's possible to totally not leave "fingerprints."

It kinda seems that way. Regardless though, I through investigation should be done to find out what specifically was done, who was targeted, and any effect that it had. If it did happen, we should be more cautious and protected for future elections.

This guy Murray claims to know who the "insider" whistleblower (leaker) is... and agrees with Assange that it isn't the Russians.

So the DNC announcing that their servers had been hacked before any information or emails were released was them realizing that they had a whistle blower? If so then they would know who that person was and from everything else we know about that Clinton's then that person would be dead so it doesn't hold much water. Then the same whistle blower got access to Podesta's phone?

Murray's whole argument is that why has the US not extradited the person/people responsible? If it was state sponsored then the person would be in the KGB or GRU and there for would not be extraditable.

We know Clinton's homebrew email server and the DNC were hacked because the emails were leaked. The question is, who did it.

Wouldn't the NSA have the ability to trace this hack job to confirm if it were the Russians or not ...

This is classic self-limiting behavior, it is simply an excuse to cover up or draw attention from their own failure. It wasn't the Russians or the so called Fake News that cause the Democrats to lose this election. They would be better served looking into the mirror for that is where the answers are located.

I agree with this. Not that Putin didn't have his propaganda monkeys flood social media with fake stories, knowing Trump fans would gleefully spread them far and wide; he might well have. But even if true, the Democrats fumbled 2016 badly. They had the superior president-making machine, and blew it in their arrogance. They (and the media) misread the electorate and how that would play out in the Electoral College. They know it, too. I worry that they are in fact looking in the mirror and will be better prepared for 2020 than the Republicans.
