Russia Admits Hacking the GOP?
Russia – hacking – RNC
No Russia did not admit to hacking anything here in america and they’d really like for america to stop accusing them of it.
It’s enough already…
To be honest, I am kind of with them on this one.
Truthfully, I am still only seeing lip service provided by intelligence officials here in america. I have not seen any tangible proof of all of this Russian hacking that went on.
And do know that the NSA is pretty keen to Russian hacking, they’ve seen it and studied it before so they’d be able to catch it…still though.
These hackers released intel in an attempt to sway public opinion with regards to the 2016 US Presidential Election and I agree with that.
That’s per our intelligence here in the US. But do they really know for a fact that was Russia and not an insider instead?
Did it really sway public opinion all that much? Even if it did none of what was released was a threat to national security and it was all true.
What’s more is that officially, election numbers after votes were cast were not hacked and changed in any way.
I know that I like being informed about the person that I am going to vote for and if he or she is dishonest or the party they are part of is dishonest I’d like to know that.
I am an American Citizen, I have a right to full disclosure about the person and his or her party when I am casting my vote.
Whether or not political organizations like it.
But to see Russia get all of this blame is getting rather old. It may or may not have been Russia, either way our own intelligence communities and military have done the very same thing to other nations and countries.
Either way, here in the US our mainstream media and our own government need to start moving away from this ugly, very public blatant way in which they accused another country of something before they actually had any proof at all.
And then the very public threats of punishing Russia, it has just gotten to be so childish.
We expect more from our leaders and intelligence communities tasked with handling these types of investigations. IF you have to punish another country because they hacked into your political systems then do it and do it quietly.
Because our government has made this so public it has made me question more than once if they aren’t just full of it and blaming the wrong party here?
This Russian hacking or just someone hacking nonsense was just not handled very well by our government or our media.
At the end of the day, Donald Trump did not win because of Russian hackers, he won because he is Donald Trump and voters felt that he could be trusted more and that he was capable of doing the job.
The last thing, the very last thing that any country should be doing is broadcasting to the world about just how vulnerable and unprotected your country really is when it comes to cyber security.
