Third paragraph in -

"The intrusion into the DNC was one of several targeting American political organizations. The networks of presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were also targeted by Russian spies, as were the computers of some GOP political action committees, U.S. officials said. But details on those cases were not available."

I'd be interested in looking "inside the RNC's dirty little world" and "inside the the Trump campaign's dirty little world" myself.

So what's stopping the Russians from getting these files to Trump? I'm sure his campaign would love to see the DNC's dirt and have a response to every attack cooked up before it's made. Don't the Russians also have her emails? Seems like there's a chance Russia could decide the election if they see the need.

Default DNC hacked by Russians

According to this article confirmed by the DNC.

Quote:
https://www.washingtonpost.com/world...a_breakingnews

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.


The intruders so thoroughly compromised the DNCís system that they also were able to read all email and chat traffic, said DNC officials and the security experts.
Not good, I'm certainly not liberal but you have to draw the line somewhere and a foreign government that my be attempting to influence elections is the line.

Wouldn't be surprised if it comes out later that they hacked the RNC, too. All to gain info on the next President, regardless of who wins in November.

Forget the Cold War, we're in a Cyber War (and have been for awhile).

I'd have to ask why all of this isn't encrypted. Should be step 1.
