There was a lot of testimony during this past week's impeachment inquiry about foreign interference in our 2016 election, including the president's assertion that Ukraine was involved. But the president's own intelligence agencies say it was the Russians who "hacked" the 2016 elections. Special counsel Robert Mueller spelled it out in his report.
Now the Justice Department has at least two open cases against Russian citizens for interfering with our presidential and congressional races, we decided to take a closer look at one of them - the case against 12 Russian military officers accused of breaking into the Democratic Party's computers, stealing compromising information, and selectively releasing it to undermine Democratic candidates. There's no evidence of similar operations against Republicans in 2016. With the 2020 election approaching, the story of "The Russian Hack."
Robert Anderson: The Russians never left. I can guarantee you in 2016 after this all hit the news, they never left. They didn't stop doing what they're doing.
Marc Caputo has covered Florida politics for 20 years. The senior writer for Politico was one of the reporters who received and wrote about the hacked documents.
Bill Whitaker: Not a lot of people know that the Russians interfered in five congressional races here in Florida. When did you first get wind of it?
Marc Caputo: Well, I'd been paying attention, like the rest of the press corps, that Russia had been hacking and Russia had been trying to interfere in our election system. And then out of the blue I got contacted by this blogger, Hello Florida.

In this piece, we find Democrats and Politico used the hacked material for their own agendas.
Democrats had no problem using any hacked material to go after Democratic opposition.
Is there *anyone* under 80 who watches 60 Minutes?
They fall asleep about 5 watching football and never change the channel hence the ratings.
I just watched that whitewash too. No mention of Crowdstrike, no mention of Imran Awan, no mention of refusal to allow FBI to inspect server, no mention of Concord MGmt. demanding exculpatory evidence etc. IOW, totally slanted. Mueller cronies still working on the case.
No mention of 2018 elections. Why didn’t the Russians interfere with 2018 elections?
How pathetic. CBS is still trying to rehash this Russian collusion nonsense. This is as absurd as Hillary going on her Why I Lost tour.
They just cannot get over the fact they lost a rigged election.
I think I may steal that as my new tag line. Hope you don't have a copyright.
wouldnt this mean the dems should be going after the russians, then....? If the report isnt complete bullshiite?
Did they stage more fake ford engines blowing up too?
Seth Vladimirovich Richsky?
I wish assange would blurt out tyat seth rich was the source of tye dnc leak
I think that was Dateline...not that there's any difference.

Any mention of ukraine?
Any mention of seth rich?
Russia Russia Russia must have been sent out on todays mockingbird media talking points memo.
Chris Wallace on Fox is grilling LA Sen Kennedy now.
Wallace we all know Russia interfered in our 2016 election. All of iur intelligence agencies said so
breaking into the Democratic Party’s computers, stealing compromising information,
His name was Seth Rich.
They killed him for it.
In the Soviet Union, there were only a couple of channels saying the same lies. We have a myriad of them who do exactly what “the party” tells them to.
More Russian hoax. Well hear more of it again next year should Democrats lose.
If they lose its because of Russian interference, not because of voter rejection of them and their policies.
Its always a conspiracy against them.
LANGUAGE WARNING - Loads of F-bombs and other cursing.
It's an awesome dissection in spite of the language.
The bottom line is this company in Russia is a click-bait farm. They had no interest in interfering with our election or creating any chaos here.
It existed only to make money through the cyber equivalent of creating and selling client lists.

Ahab will give the first man to sight Moby Dick a doubloon, a gold coin, which he nails to the mast.
Starbuck objects that he has not come for vengeance but for profit...”
