Gordy, your point is irrelevant.

 

1. Trump and his minions have repeatedly denied the Russians attempted to hack into the election. This statement from the head of Homeland Security disproves that because they did try to break into the system in 21 states.

 

2. If you read her comments, the Russians did succeed in a couple of cases, but we don't know how many.


1. Who are those "minions"? I haven't seen any such claims here.

 

2. How many votes were changed?

 

3. Obama was aware of the efforts and, apparently, did not take it serious enough.

"We saw a targeting of 21 states and an exceptionally small number of them were actually successfully penetrated," Manfra told NBC.

 

This is not exactly breaking news:

 

September, 2017

U.S. Tells 21 States That Hackers Targeted Their Voting Systems

 

Being targeted does not mean that sensitive voter data was manipulated or that results were changed. A hacker targeting a system without getting inside is similar to a burglar circling a house, checking for unlocked doors and windows.

Russians penetrated multiple states voter registration rolls in the 2016 presidential election, the head of cybersecurity at the Department of Homeland Security told NBC News. "We saw a targeting of 21 states and an exceptionally small number of them were actually successfully penetrated," Manfra told NBC.


Notice that Manfra said absolutely nothing about the twenty thousand plus bots, hacking of the vast majority of social media, or hacking and the considerable amount of financial assistance given to the NRA by Russians....

I posted about this in detail when it happened. The Right, at least the right wing posters here, simply do not care. I don't think they care whether or not the Russians and trump or anyone involved in his campaign conspired together.
