    And why wouldn’t they, with no consequences?

  3. Parallax47 February 14, 2018 / 10:38 am

    Of course they’re still doing it. They got Trump into office, and nothing has been done about it.

    Fucking hell this post is getting swarmed by the whataboutists.

    Have the Russians learned something from their American counterparts? The US has been meddling forever.

  6. YoMammaMcJamma February 14, 2018 / 10:38 am

    We need voter ID or these Russians might get Trump re-elected.

    They won’t be the only ones.

    The American government sent the message loud and clear in 2017 – fuck with our elections and you will face zero consequences. We won’t even make any kind of effort to prevent it from happening in the future.

    Why would Russia not continued to meddle? Why would China not follow suit, only backing the Democrats instead?

    Americans have become so fucking petty and partisan in their bickering that their entire country is weaker for it.

    Grow the fuck up!

    Damn US culture is so hypocritical.

    Yuuus the fascists come to downvote:3

    Why would they stop? It got Trump elected and achieved their aim at cause upheaval in the west.

    Democrats start needing to use the T-Word

  11. DrMussintouchit February 14, 2018 / 10:38 am

    Why is this news? They have for decades as every other country in the world, including the US.

    Of course they are. They got an amazing return out of it. And what retribution have we fielded yet? We voted for sanctions but Trump is intentionally not enacting them as yet another dowry to Putin.

    They’re going to keep doing this for the remainder of our existence, at least until we get around to fighting back. We need to sanction them. We need to sanction them until the majority of their populace is going to bed hungry. We know it can work, our sanctions have *one hell* of an effect. In 2014 we cut Russia’s GRP almost in HALF. We can do that again, and worse. And we HAVE TO.

    If we don’t, we’ll be fighting this battle, over and over again, until the end of time. We cannot tolerate this.

    There’s some hilarious irony in that the Russians are fucking up the U.S through U.S companies.

    What I don’t get is, why isn’t the U.S striking back? Isn’t America equipped for cyber-warfare?

  14. purplespring1917 February 14, 2018 / 10:38 am

    So this is going to be the same excuse from.now on?

  15. Fuarian February 14, 2018 / 10:38 am

    It’s not about right and left. It’s about right and wrong!

  16. netrunui February 14, 2018 / 10:38 am

    Why the hell are people saying that Voter ID laws are the answer? It’s not like Russians are voting disguised as Americans. I guess it’s a pointless argument though, given that I’m just talking to bots.

  17. Berlin_Blues February 14, 2018 / 10:38 am

    Why are we making a big deal out of this? America has been influencing elections all over the world for decades.

  18. Vault111Survivor February 14, 2018 / 10:38 am

    By interfering they mean spewing propaganda everywhere. Like the americans do.

  19. SoCo_cpp February 14, 2018 / 10:38 am

    So is Saudi Arabia, China, and Israel, but you don’t see anyone complaining about them for some reason.

  20. Samantha_Q February 14, 2018 / 10:38 am

    Putin sees how easy it is to cause chaos in America so this is what he does. He is helped by the complete overreaction of the American media.

  21. uid_0 February 14, 2018 / 10:38 am

    Everyone meddles in everyone else’s election. It has been happening for decades.

  22. annoying_liberals February 14, 2018 / 10:38 am

    Remember guys, Russians are hacking our elections unless Democrats win. That’s the litmus test. If Democrats win Russians weren’t successful. Specifically the corporate, rubbing shoulders with bankers, hiding money in plastic bags in your freezer kind of Democrat. If they don’t win it was Putin’s minions all along! Those pesky Facebook ads and Twitter eggs!

    Y’all are dumb.

  25. chewdbacca February 14, 2018 / 10:38 am

    Why does nobody mention that the CIA does this and always will?

  26. Fancyplateoffosh February 14, 2018 / 10:38 am

    Many people say a lot of things, but evidence would be nice by now.

  27. StepYaGameUp February 14, 2018 / 10:38 am

    It’s not practical or politically popular but the quick solution is to geofence all traffic outside the US for Election Day.

    That or go through the nearly-impossible and far more labor Intensive task of hardening the entire voting system (processes, hardware, communications).

    Security and functionality are opposite ends of the IT spectrum.

    Edit: thanks Russia 😘
