    Russian leaders, "But how do we know the hacks are coming from Ukraine?"

    Russian intelligence, "We recognize their work."

    Russian leaders, "How?"

    Russian intelligence,"We recruited them, & trained them."

    Russian leaders, "So they know our computer systems?"

    Russian intelligence, "You could say that, but we don't like to."

    If I had the mad skills of @MeltedMetalGlob I could make the above extremely funny.

    If we've gotten this far that it is in the news, you know damn well that Smith and his team, if not the whole DOJ, DHS and CIA are drilling down into it.
    Perhaps the findings will make the FL judge change her tone and tune.

    That's got implications even beyond all the others...OR makes what was found altogether even more impacting and significant.

    Alexei Navalny, the fiercest foe of Russia's Putin, has died, Russian authorities say

    Well, no shit!
    He was a fool for going back.

    They poisoned him BEFORE he returned...proven.
    And when he went back, they immediately imprisioned him...with a sham case.
    And slowly made it worse and worse for him.

    He should have stay away and made waves from outside Russia.
    A shame.

    Russia is still proving itself, a dick. :mad:
    the leadership, that is.

    I'm hoping Biden get reelected so that he can kick out the incompetent shit-for-brains, & the pro-Trumpers in the CIA, & the Secret Service. I would love to see criminal prosecution against the officials who knowingly hindered Biden illegally.

    The sad news something like this goes so deep it's much easier to forgive than to fight. Much like the efforts to prosecute NPD Trump.

    Russia isn't just a bully, it's a scam artist.
    It's mantra is "chaos to the enemy".
    Not just propaganda influencing the masses...but direct bribes. (probably using cryptocurrency like bitcoin, because it's untraceable and encrypted)

    And its targets are falling behind...the US and EU (and others)
    Congress, legislators, courts, counter-intelligence and police...can't keep up (and they may be corrupted and bribed themselves)

    Russia has no rules, no ethics, no hesitation - just CONSTANT hits and improvements of methods. - huge funding too.

    Again, WHY aren't they punching back
    And WHY aren't thet investigating the corrupted and indicting them???

    Russia doesn't mind the lag. :rolleyes:
