    I knew it was russia before the election. All that hacking op intel given to candidates, conspiracy theorists, propagandists and usual outlets was more than enough to sway votes.

    I mean, imagine if Clinton had tons of private intel on Trump and his dealings. You can keep the 'drip drip drip' going for a long time. It also doesn't help that Trump and RW media welcomed the hacks and the information they discovered. But that's not the whole russian influence in the election. They also spread propaganda and fake news stories into social media sites.

    Komrade Trumpsky put on a rather petulant performance today. The real fun is around the 2 minute mark. :D :D :D

    Most hacks will be Russia or China because they devote extensive resources to doing it. I could believe Russia has something to do with hacks, but I'm tired of the Russia/Trump FUD/Fake News. Will Russia try to hack us again? Yeah, without a doubt. :D Trump actually being connected to it? That's a damn reach... Yet the liberal media was printing exactly that for a week. Time to stop taking news from them. :D

    Anyway, my understanding of the DNC security is basically that it is a level that would have been acceptable in the 80s not now. This is sort of like blaming Russia because you don't lock your front door, then get mad when someone just walks in.

    If you leave your door unlocked and someone robs you, you still call the police.

    Anyone with an ounce of intellectual honesty knew it was Russia. We have to ask why they denied this for so long? What was their motive? Why was it so easy for them to stay so deluded for so long?

    Yes, but the blame is not entirely on others if you purchase weak security. That's a choice you make, and something you can avoid. Security is, on the whole, very cheap and it's just reckless not to have the bases covered. One could argue that the Democrats are not capable of running a government in a modern technological society.

    Trump supporters don't care about facts or evidence, etc. They will do whatever Trump says and they will trust him. So now that Trump has possibly admitted that Russia is behind the hacks, expect the Trump supporter to follow suit. He is their dear leader, he can do no harm

    Using your logic, the woman is at fault for being raped because she looked sexy. That's just so much BS as to defy all logic. It was a spearfishing that worked. The RNC was just as exposed, but lucked out.

    Admit it! You're saying this only because it's true! Don't deny it! I know how you people operate. You want us to use truth instead of blindly following Komrade Trumputin! Heresy! I will no longer answer your questions because the only way I can hope to deflect it is to label it "Fake News". No, it doesn't matter that "Fake News" got Komrade Trumputin elected. We can only tolerate it if it benefits Komrade Trumputin and his alter ego, Max Twitler!

    I think a better analogy would be the crook who commits
    a crime, but is caught cuz of inadequate steps to hide it.
    Hillary & the DNC remind me of the burglars who drew their masks on....
    They make their mark in mug shot history - CNN.com

    If you're caught doing wrong, you shouldn't blame the one who caught you.
    That bespeaks not just immorality, but immaturity & bad judgement.

    Actually, he's your leader too if you live in the USA, but anyway Russia could be hacking that doesn't mean Russia is hacking for Trump, lol. Trump can do plenty of harm, but I have yet to see any of it... Maybe that is because he's not even in office yet... :D

    The DNC really have no one to blame other than themselves for choosing a shoddy candidate. She was damaged goods from the beginning...

    Yeah, is it really a crime to expose someone who is committing crimes? Even if the information came from "Russia" it would still be important for us to know.

    Not one I'm willing to follow. You can have my piece of Komrade Trumputin. No, no... I insist. I'll pass.
