Of course it is wrong for any country to interfere in another country's internal election process. Russia knows this and every one else knows it.

Yet just what could they do to actually create a problem? Every state should have a voting policy where it is on a paper hard copy and then a digital process, as we have in KS.

So I ask just what could Russia do to upset Hillary's position in the elections?

Everyone knows it, but many are willing to ignore it because it didn't bite them in the ass this time. Selective ethics.

The poll is very limited in options. Probably why very few have voted on it and those that did are mostly left leaning people here. An option could have been, "Yes I am not happy Russia involved in our elections however they did expose the DNC and I am happy with that". There is others that could have been added.

With that Russia is not the only one that has hacked into the systems of the US. I guess we also found out how vulnerable Hillary's home made server was. Boy there was a few here that sure defended her server and how no one has ever hacked into it.

But now that we know someone hacked into it you all need to know that whoever did is not the first and doing a investigation into this is a waste. If we do prove Russia did it what can we do about it. Can't change the outcome and Sanctions don't work.

My opinion is take the money you are going to spend on this 5 year investigation and instead build a system that is fool proof that can't be hacked into. Heck the other night on the news they showed us how a electronic voting machine can be hacked into and change the outcome of that machine. Not only is our infrastructure weak so is our security

Can't change the past but you can fix the future.

Just my 2 cents is all.

If you mean the Russian's exposed the truth on the DNC, Hillary R. Clinton planning to mess up B. Sander's or her e-mail mess, like she and the DNC did themselves in, and the media try like they might could not cover for her this time.

And I see around 6 or 7 non left persons here Kert. A post might replace a vote if done correctly. Then to why bother voting for a or something that might not have even happened.

I mean to say the dang Govt., has lied to us many times before now.

If, and it is a big if, Russia interfered in our election process then it would be just as bad as the US interfering in Iranian elections, or anywhere else.

I've never seen anyone publish insider dirt from Putin's United Russia Party.

Maybe that's about to change. Just don't expect Wikileaks to be the NSA cutout.

A lot is going to change because these Liberals can't accept Hillary lost the elections by failing to do what was needed, plus all the new crap about back dooring Sanders her continued e-mail mess.

She is a loser... And if I ran against her I would be going to the W.H. in a few weeks.

So Obama has to play with Putin over what? What could a hacker do to make her lose, tell me.
Leave Putin alone clown.

I'm curious. What is too much Russian hacking for mlurp? Knocking out entire US power grids? Tampering with SCADA controls at US nuclear power stations?

When exactly does mlurp say enough is enough?
