It concluded that while there is no evidence that any votes were changed in actual voting machines, “Russian cyberactors were in a position to delete or change voter data” in the Illinois voter database.
So we can not trust digital voting machines, and need a paper trail now. Kremlin MItch???
I think it’s more accurate that credible stories of Russian interference hurt Republican campaigns.
I don’t know if Russian interference was effective enough to sway a presidential election, but the Republicans want to deny that it ever happened. If it never happened then they don’t have to admit that Trump, the Republican Party, and the CEC may have unintentionally aided Russian attempts to interfere.
I guess Mitch McConnell picked the wrong day to block a House-passed election security bill, implying that a bill designed to make it harder to hack rolls or votes and require a candidate or his team to report to the FBI whenever a foreign government approaches them with an offer to assist them a “partisan bill designed to help Democrats”.
Who were the Russians trying to help? Democrats need to be defeated by any measure necessary. When your enemy is dirty it doesn’t pay to play nice. Win or lose. How you got there doesn’t matter at the end of the day.
And didn’t the incoming National Security Advisor who was secretly working for at two entities other than the United States Government give Russia a call and ask them to not retaliate… that the incoming administration would take care it?
