A lot of ink was sacrificed over the Russian hacking of the DNC and other political activists. But now it’s dropped off the map. Why? Just because the election is over doesn’t mean the Russians aren’t actively attempting to hack both parties, news media sites, law enforcement agencies, the power grid, and of course all areas within the federal government.

So even if the GOP doesn’t want to pursue those ‘past sins’, they should be pursuing anti-hacking technology and spending money on anti-hacking research to prevent contemporary and future incidents.

What are they waiting for?

    By all accounts the work of the investigation continues and the hearings will still be forthcoming. Most DC reporters who opine on this topic say their sources are talking of this matter coming to a head this fall. This is far from over–and the men such as Graham, McCain, and McConnell are not about to let this slide/

    The GOP is “attacking,” supposed Russian hacking by attempting to end our press freedoms and open news reporting as wonderfully explained by Glenn Greenwald on Democracy Now this morning.

    Demonize the messenger, Julian Assange and Wikileaks, rather than the actual supposed hackers if these hackers are entities other than US intelligence leakers and not Russians or other foreign influenced sources at all.

    Democrats have no excuse for losing in 2016 other than the Clinton machine and the corporate DNC/DLC. Ed H seemingly falls victim to Democratic excuse making and propaganda with this piece.

      I have done nothing of the kind. I am complaining about the US government not taking Russian (or Chinese or North Korean or non-government) hacking seriously all around. Did I not clearly state: attempting to hack both parties, news media sites, law enforcement agencies, the power grid, and of course all areas within the federal government?
