Report: Russia Hacked 39 States During Election; Zero Evidence Provided
The_Real_Fly, Zero Hedge, Jun 13 2017

This is wonderful. We’re moving past the stage of Russian hacking into John Podesta’s email account, since it has garnered very little traction. Plus, no one can actually prove that the Wikileaks changed votes, just innuendo. All of the ‘collusion’ the deep state and the left have been trying to pin on Trump just got blown up during Comey’s testimony, most likely thanks to Trump’s mention of the possibility of tapes. Had Trump not done that, there is a very good chance that Comey would have went all the way with his lies. Alas, Bloomberg is now reporting, six months after the elections, that 39 states were hacked by fucking Russians. Here is a delicate snowflake reporting. Check the venom in his cadence and the hatred in his eyes. Where is the proof, you ponder? Here it is:

In Illinois, investigators found evidence that cyber-intruders tried to delete or alter voter data. The hackers accessed software designed to be used by poll workers on Election Day, and in at least one state accessed a campaign finance database. Details of the wave of attacks, in the summer and fall of 2016, were provided by three people with direct knowledge of the investigation into the matter. In all, one of them said, the Russian hackers hit systems in a total of 39 states.

There it is, folks. Details of the ‘wave of attacks’ were provided by 3 people who have direct knowledge on the matter. Those 3 people, anonymous of course, told Bloomberg that it happened. Therefore, it happened. Bloomberg continues:

The new details, buttressed by a classified NSA document recently disclosed by the Intercept, show the scope of alleged hacking that federal investigators are scrutinizing as they look into whether Trump campaign officials may have colluded in the efforts. But they also paint a worrisome picture for future elections. The newest portrayal of potentially deep vulnerabilities in Pindostan’s patchwork of voting technologies comes less than a week after former FBI Director James Comey warned Congress that Moscow isn’t done meddling.

What details? Did I miss something? According to this new ground-breaking report, Russian hackers broke into the systems inside 39 states, but never tried to disrupt the vote. They posit that the Pindo warnings were enough to scare the rascals off, or perhaps, according to an anonymous source, the hackers failed to access the voting systems. So then what are we talking about here? Ah, the Russians are planning another attack:

One former senior official expressed concern that the Russians now have three years to build on their knowledge of Pindo voting systems before the next presidential election, and there is every reason to believe they will use what they have learned in future attacks.

Here is the smoking gun. An anonymous part-time contractor who works for the state board of elections in Illinois claims hackers accessed the state’s voter database and ‘compromised’ 90,000 records. In other words, according to this part-time worker at the board of elections in Illinois, about 0.75% of their fifteen million registered voter records had been ‘compromised.’ As to how they were ‘compromised,’ we may never know. Bloomberg reports the government then used digital signatures to prove it was the Russians, the very same signatures that cyber-security expert John McAfee said was complete horseshit. Bloomberg says:

The signatures were then sent through Homeland Security alerts and other means to every state. Thirty-seven states reported finding traces of the hackers in various systems, according to one of the people familiar with the probe. In two others, Florida and California, those traces were found in systems run by a private contractor managing critical election systems. In Illinois, investigators also found evidence that the hackers tried but failed to alter or delete some information in the database, an attempt that wasn’t previously reported. That suggested more than a mere spying mission and potentially a test run for a disruptive attack, according to the people familiar with the continuing counter-intelligence inquiry.

In summary…

In many states, the extent of the Russian infiltration remains unclear. The federal government had no direct authority over state election systems, and some states offered limited cooperation. When then DHS Sec J Johnson said Aug 2016 that the department wanted to declare the systems as national critical infrastructure, a designation that gives the federal government broader powers to intervene, but their opposite numbers in Congress balked. Only after the election did the two sides eventually reach a deal to make the designation.

With all of this evidence of obvious Russian hacking of the elections, how can we simply sit here and let Trump occupy the White House?
