Huge story coming out about how Russian hackers are cutting into some Left Wing Democrat groups and demanding payments to keep things hush-hush !!

Reportedly, some groups have been paying up to keep the exposures down and out of sight !!

Another "Russian" set of victims !!


Russian Hackers Said to Seek Hush Money From Liberal Groups

Russian hackers are targeting U.S. progressive groups in a new wave of attacks, scouring the organizations’ emails for embarrassing details and attempting to extract hush money, according to two people familiar with probes being conducted by the FBI and private security firms.

At least a dozen groups have faced extortion attempts since the U.S. presidential election, said the people, who provided broad outlines of the campaign. The ransom demands are accompanied by samples of sensitive data in the hackers’ possession.

In one case, a non-profit group and a prominent liberal donor discussed how to use grant money to cover some costs for anti-Trump protesters. The identities were not disclosed, and it’s unclear if the protesters were paid.

Bolding mine

Shouldn't we be cautious about stories that open with "people said?" Reminds me of how Fox news opens so often with "some people say…."

Also, why did the Russians hack or bribe only left wing affiliates and not right through all of this? Makes it seem like there was favoritism to the right maybe?

Now if this pans out to be true, I agree it is wrong and those involved should be punished.

Lol bloomberg article!
First off why would people who want secrets to be kept go to the fbi who will want access to their computers. Second its a political party who the fbi is supposed to have oversite over lol. Thats like going to the cops as a drug dealer demanding the cops look into other drug dealers demanding hush money or pay to keep quiet. Are people really this stupid?

However lets look at what the article is trying to prove. A: collusion with trump or republican with russian hackers.
B: Russian hackers have hacked the dnc or other left leaning groups.
which their is no proof of and in actuality two muslims men who worked for the dnc just got caught stealing information from the dnc not russian hackers.

Who ever wrote this article is devoid of critical thinking skills! Lol only the slowest left leaning extreme liberals would actually believe this non sense.

that can be said with 99% of the "stories" in the news today...

How many front line stories in the last 6 weeks ended up being an anonymous source, or sources familiar with..

How can this be?
Surely the Russians didn't hack anyone. You guys have been claiming no evidence since Christ was born. Now how can this be true if they didn't hack anyone?

So, they are blaming it on the Russians. As if a Russian hacker is going to say they are Russian.


I think this is just a ploy, some of the members of the group decided they need some money so hacked themselves. That would be my guess.

Read the article lol then do some more research. The russian didnt hack the dnc lol.

Take it from someone who actually has a degree in information security and not someone who doesn't understand the technical aspects of hacking or data foriesics

Those Muslim IT guys worked for the house and senate not the DNC. I believe the DNC emails were given to Assange by Seth Rich whom was later murdered. Assange didn't admit that Seth Rich gave Him the emails because if He turns in a source then no one will ever leak to wikileaks ever again. He might not of admitted it in words but He did offer a 20k reward for anyone whom had info on Seth Rich's murder. I know I might be stretching the conclusion but I believe it's a lot more believable than some shadowy group of Russian hackers that never leave behind clues.
