    The first post on this thread -- Go look! -- concerned Robert Mueller's indictment of 13 Russian government-backed hackers for meddling in our 2016 Presidential election. They were part of Russia's GRU intelligence agency. Today, seven more GRU operatives have been charged with cyberattacks on the DNC, two Ukraine airports, Russia's central bank, two Russian media outlets, anti-doping organizations and a nuclear energy company. The US and Russia engaged in a "Cold War" from 1947 to 1991. In the 21st century, the two powers are embroiled in a Computer War.

    In the 1970s, Richard Nixon and Chuck Colson became infamous for their so-called "dirty tricks." They pale in comparison to all the many "dirty trick" perpretators in the current-day Republican party.

    Trump continues to attack his former political opponent and Trump continues to make outrageous accusations with absolutely no evidence to support them. So what else is new?

    Clinton fires back at Trump: 'You asked Russia to hack me on national television'
    The Hill, Oct 11 2018

    Hillary Clinton today offered one of her most direct rebukes of President Trump in months after Trump accused her of colluding with Russia during the 2016 presidential election. At a campaign rally in Pennsylvania Wednesday night, Trump told an arena of supporters that there was "collusion between Hillary, the Democrats and Russia" during the 2016 election, despite offering no evidence for his claim. An intelligence community assessment in 2017 concluded that Russia's efforts were aimed at undermining the Clinton campaign.

    "Seriously, you asked Russia to hack me on national television," Clinton responded in a tweet today, a reference to Trump's comments at a news conference on the campaign trail in 2016, where he appeared to call on Russia directly to find emails supposedly deleted from Clinton's private email server used during her time at the State Department.

    "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing," Trump said at the time, adding: "I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."

    The President has accused his former opponent of collusion with Russians before. In April, Trump quoted a Washington Post columnist who alleged that Clinton had sought compromising information on Trump from Russian sources during the campaign, which fact-checkers have found to be false.

    Most of these attempted cyber-attacks have been thwarted but the hackers never seem to tire or become discouraged. They keep trying.

    Twitter today released ten million tweets that came from 3,400 fake accounts created by Russians and 770 fake accounts created by Iranians. Their goal: To sow discord, to build up Trump and to tear down Hillary. They succeeded. And Robert Mueller's team is now looking at these tweets.

    Did Rosenstein just wake up from a two-year-long nap? He's telling us something that everybody already knows. Well, everybody except the squawking orange parrot: "Hoax! Witch hunt! Fake news! Awwkkk!"

    Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein says the Russia probe has uncovered a widespread Russian effort to meddle in the 2016 US election

    The first criminal charge has been filed in the Russian election meddling investigation. Surely there will be many more Russians charged with crimes. ("There will -- and don't call me Shirley.")

    Russian national charged with conspiracy to meddle in 2018 midterm elections
    CBS News, Oct 19 2018 5:11 PM EDT

    A Russian national has become the first person charged by the US for conspiring to interfere in the 2018 midterm elections, according to the FBI and Justice Department. Elena Alekseevna Khusyaynova is alleged to have participated in a conspiracy to "sow discord in the US political system and to undermine faith in our democratic institutions," US Attorney Zachary Terwilliger, of the Eastern District of Virginia, said in the indictment. The government says the conspiracy is also part of the 2016 influence operation that dates back to at least May 2014.

    Forty-four-year-old Khusyaynova of St. Petersburg was the chief accountant of "Project Lakhta," an effort funded by Russian oligarch Yevgeniy Viktorovich Prigozhin and two companies he controls, Concord Management & Consulting and Concord Catering. Prigozhin is close to Russian President Vladimir Putin and is often referred to as "Putin's chef."

    Khusyaynova is accused of overseeing a $35 million budget from 2014 to 2018 that covered spending on activists, social media advertising, registration of domain names, the purchase of proxy servers and promoting news postings on social networks. The Justice Department says the proposed operating budget for 2018 alone was more than $10 million. Those involved in the conspiracy made extensive efforts to appear to be American political activists, using virtual private networks and other tools to hide the fact that they were Russian.

    In 2016, Trump adviser Roger Stone bragged about being in contact with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who released hacked emails of Hillary Clinton. In 2017, Assange denied talking with Stone. In 2018, Stone denies talking with Assange. Stone also calls the Mueller investigation "illegitimate." Are Stone and Assange lying? No, of course not -- not any more than Trump and Trump Jr. and Kushner and Cohen and Hicks and Pruitt and Shulkin and Manafort and Spicer and Sanders and Price and Porter and Flynn and Bannon and Kavanaugh and...... .

    Trump's former campaign manager, who was sentenced to 14 days in prison for lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia, will meet with Robert Mueller's team investigating Russian election meddling. Ooh, the drama! Ooh, the suspense! I like what Obama told a crowd in Milwaukee today about Trump's pledge to "drain the swamp": "In Washington, they've racked up enough indictments to field a football team. Nobody in my administration got indicted, so how is it that they cleaned things up?"
