Russia Hacked State, Local Computers ‘In Recent Days’ to Help Trump – ‘Broad Access’ to Voting Infrastructure: NYT



The New York Times has just published a bombshell report, alleging Russian hackers “in recent days” were able to access state and local computer networks, in an effort to help President Donald Trump win re-election. These “breaches…could allow Moscow broader access to American voting infrastructure.”

The revelation is in keeping with Russia’s stated goal of undermining confidence in the U.S. elections system.

“The discovery of the hacks came as American intelligence agencies, infiltrating Russian networks themselves, have pieced together details of what they believe are Russia’s plans to interfere in the presidential race in its final days or immediately after the election on Nov. 3,” the Times reports.

“Officials did not make clear what Russia planned to do, but they said its operations would be intended to help President Trump, potentially by exacerbating disputes around the results, especially if the race is too close to call.”

For months Trump has been sowing seeds to allow himself and his supporters to claim the election was not free or fair, repeatedly calling it “rigged.”

The Times claims there is “no evidence that the Russians have changed any vote tallies or voter registration information.”

But experts say this isn’t over.

“This could be the reconnaissance for disruptive activity,” says John Hultquist, the director of threat analysis at the security firm FireEye.

“American officials expect that if the presidential race is not called on election night, Russian groups could use their knowledge of the local computer systems to deface websites, release nonpublic information or take similar steps that could sow chaos and doubts about the integrity of the results, according to American officials briefed on the intelligence.”

Fox News Anchor: ‘President’s Tweet Ripping’ Ukraine Ambassador Yovanovitch Added ‘An Article of Impeachment Real-Time’



President Donald Trump stunned America and likely many around the world when he engaged in what experts are calling “witness intimidation” and “witness tampering” in real time by tweeting attacks against former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch as she testified before Congress during Friday’s House impeachment hearing.

Trump also timed the tweets to post while she was talking about feeling intimidated when she learned he had told the President of Ukraine she would “go through some things,” an obvious threat to her and possibly even her well-being.

Trump’s actions Friday morning did not go unnoticed by his number one champions, Fox News.

Here’s one of the conservative cable news network’s top anchors, Bret Baier, making clear Trump engaged in an impeachable act in public, with America as a witness.


Baier was not the only Fox News anchor to admit Trump just committed another impeachable offense.

Chris Wallace, the face of Fox News’ news division, agreed Trump appeared to have engaged in “witness intimidation and witness tampering.”

Here’s Wallace praising Yovanovitch live on-air:
