McK 1, wow, I expected more from someone who works at a firm as supposedly prestigious as yours. Are you able to post a single comment without excessive cursing or name calling? Yes, meddling with foreign elections and governments is an act of war - so when are GWB and more importantly, Obama, going to be tried for their war crimes? Unnecessary foreign intervention, overthrowing governments, and nation building epitomize our foreign policy. And for the record, you are incorrect when it comes to our meddling with Russia. Not only do we meddle with them directly (see: 1996 election - which then resulted in Putin just a couple years later... oops), we also influence political processes in their allies' governments as well as antagonize them by putting boots on the ground in surrounding territories. Also, polls show that Trump tapes hurt Trump more than anything hurt Hillary. But like dem emails, the tape was his own damn fault.

Some facts that people are either not grasping or choosing to ignore: The Democratic primary is not the same thing as a general election. There's no constitutional protection for a free primary election - hell in a lot of states only democrats can vote in democratic primaries. The purpose of that election is to help both parties choose who their candidate will be, so if the party favors one candidate over another in order to field a candidate with the best shot in a general election that's not undermining American's fundamental right to free elections - nobody's forcing you to vote for your party in the general. So it is completely different to suggest party insiders favor one candidate over another candidate in I primary versus state actors influencing the general election

Seriously whatever they're doing covertly better hit Putin individually hard. The U.S. is not an eastern block country to screw with an election.

So let me understand. You are not outraged by the shit the DNC emails contained but rather blame the source. Secondly, they were released by Wikileaks and Assange himself alluded to the fact that it wasn't Russia and probably an inside job. Thirdly, RNC weren't hacked, a couple of members were. They did an audit and it confirmed. So the problem is within the Democratic party but they would rather blame everything in Russians just like all of Obama's failings are blamed on Congress and Bush. Nice.

Also the entire switch from "it's not rigged you're just losing" to "omg but Russia!!!!" Is the most pathetic meltdown I've seen from our elected officials. And I say this as someone who did not even vote for Trump.

DNC emails were leaks, John podesta's emails were a result of him being ridiculously incompetent when it comes to security. Clicking on a phishing link? Using "p@ssw0rd" as password? Come on dude - plus Assange came out of hiding just to give an interview emphatically stating the source wasn't Russian Either way, "Russia hacked the election" is the most misleading statement ever. Per recent polling 50% of democrats now think it means they hacked the voting machines. 🙄 Sending a phishing link to Podesta is nothing compared to what we do to other countries. Must I remind everyone that our continuous undermining of sovereign governments has led to literal death and destruction across the world?

Would there be as much outrage if Hillary won? There are a couple of points here: 1. Information warfare happens regularly, no one bats an eye. 2. We've deposed of numerous dictators in the past 8 years by "influencing" elections with more than simple media influence 3. Hillary still wouldn't have won 4. This is literally shooting the messenger Bottom line is the DNC is incredibly and contradictorily corrupt. They shot themselves in the foot. Here's a great idea: let's leave a mess for the next president. Let's not try to work towards a common good. Yea "hope" - all you liberals are such a walking contradiction

All countries hack each other. We hack Russia, China and even Germany among others. The US meddles in elections all the time, including Russia. The DNC did all it could to fix its own primary and HRC was terrible about securing her own email. Now it is a "hack" rather than a leak or expose. Nothing revealed was shown to be false. So a reveal of truth is to blame for Trump winning the election? Not that HRC was a terrible candidate that took states for granted? No one should like outside influence in our election but the time to act was on the individuals and institutions was prior to being hacked.

It's not about who won. Very few dispute Trump won fair and square. It is about the audacity of a foreign power to try and undermine our democracy. Just the attempt to do so requires s firm and punitive response

No one screwed with the election itself. There was no hacking of voting machines. There's 0 proof of that and nothing has been released to prove otherwise.

Excuse me C2? "All you" conservatives were flipping your shit in 2012 about how Russia is our greatest geopolitical foe; now that they've fucked with our election, we should become friends and work towards a common good? Fucking pot, meet kettle.

The US has openly subverted the democratic process all over the world. In the 80's it was South America and there has been no shortage of intervention in the middle east. Turkey, Iran, Iraq and a host of other instances where the US has empowered brutal dictators and provided refuge to others. Here Russia didn't "tamper" with election results. People willingly cast their votes based of evidence that all appears to have been true. Where do we draw the line between and hacker and subversive versus an activist or whistle blower?

like

The DNC was completely tilted towards HRC from info provided and donor access to giving actual debate questions to the campaign. Why is that not as much of a story? Why not the anger and scandal there? That was tampering it what we are told to believe is a free election. On one hand emails and security weren't a big deal and now they are. It is ironic given how cavalier HRC was with her email. If true hacks can so sway an election then how strong are our democratic institutions? Why did the Dems so fail to protect them in this instance? Trump is terrifying in so many ways but the RNC did let the process play out.

I agree, where is the specific tangible proof of the hacks? Either way, this doesn't sound good at all for world piece :(

Russia deliberately engaged in subterfuge with the intent to influence our election. The effectiveness of said subterfuge is irrelevant; that is some fucked up shit and requires a response. If you try to brush this off as inconsequential, you're either a fucking idiot with no understanding of how the world works or you're intentionally obfiscating because you're an ideologue.
