I watched the news break on this around one o'clock. Other than identifying names that they want to question about their involvement, this is
nothing. It still states that there was Russians behind some social media stuff and an attempt to try to keep Hillary from winning. Putin said he
did not like Hilary, that is not new, it was a given. The statement also said that this propaganda was probably not enough to change the results of
the election of Trump, and it also said they did not target voting machines. It said they have found no collusion and that it appears people who
interacted with this Russia stuff were unaware they were actually interacting with Russians, they thought it was Americans.
There is nothing new here, this is the same stuff that has been officially stated all along. This is what the FBI has been saying and Trump said long
ago the same thing, he was aware that the Russians were doing this after being informed by the FBI about it. He stated that on TV. The Russians were
trying to trick people, even in the campaigns. The people were unaware they were talking to Russians posing as Americans.
Hillary brought the wrath of Russia on herself, she went there and tried to boss people around. I don't blame Putin, I probably would do the same
I learned of most of what I know that matches this here on ATS. Cool.
I did learn something from the TV news bulletin, that the two protests, one anti-trump and one pro-trump in New York were actually organized by these
hackers on the same day. This shows that Russia is trying to stimulate civil unrest. I thought the USA had a patent on that. The USA has the best
people in the world working on stuff like Russia did and also hacking the computers of other countries. How dare Russia try to get in on our action,
they need to back off so we can do it without getting caught.
Our government won't do much with this because when you point a finger at someone, three are pointing back at you. We would do better with this kind
of stuff if Russia would start selling websites to our spies, but they are pretty stingy, they do not want our propaganda in their country. Lots of
people have computers in Russia from what I read, a very high percentage of them use them. Maybe if Trump complains Putin will give him a back door
to spread propaganda. It is one sided now, the internet we have is actually very susceptible to this kind of thing, but of more concern to me is that
our financial network is too risky, and also that we are now an open door to scammers trying to trick us out of what we have earned and out of our tax
refunds. Our personal security is at extreme risk and everyone is at risk of being scammed by very highly put together scams with lots of evidence to
show they are real.
