    Nope, he was busy writing your responses to it.

    Every liberal here would have preferred that this TRUTHFUL information about the democrats remain buried so that voters would not know the full truth.

    That right there is treasonous and every single one of them should be ashamed of themselves.
    Prosecutor, jury and executioner Spookycolt!

    The fact of the matter is, the election wasn't decided by emails or leaks or hacking. It was decided mainly by Clinton's poor campaign strategy, secondarily by her underestimation of Trump support, and peripherally by the FBI's unprecedented interference — which might've been justifiable if someone was still under investigation or arrested at this point, but they're not. Comey still hasn't been made to answer for that, either.

    Anyway, there's no denying at this point that Russia was the vector of most of the damaging information released about Clinton, and that they attempted to gather information on voter registration as well, only stopping when the message was conveyed that any alteration of votes or voter privileges would be considered an act of war.

    The theft and general release of information is fairly unprecedented. The other stuff is completely unprecedented, and alarming. What if they hadn't been detected? Our whole system might've collapsed on election day, an event that would have served Russia's interests tremendously regardless of the outcome.

    If the reports are true that Trump campaign staffers or associates were in communication with Russian spies during the campaign, those people need to be investigated. If they saw signs that the people they were talking to were Russians and they did not report it, they need to be arrested. If they did this with any top tier authorization, such as from longtime Russia cat's paw Paul Manafort, then we're dealing with a very serious situation indeed.

    How? I was talking about the action of breaking into computer systems, stealing information, and then using it as a weapon. If the RNC's defenses did in fact hold, and they may not have we just don't know because the hackers are sitting on the product of their work until the time comes to use it then it wasn't for a lack of trying. Regardless of the target, what was done to our political organizations in 2016 by a foreign actor has no precedent. There is no comparison between that, France, Israel, Venezuela, whatever.
