In all the news surrounding Trump’s election, it seems we’ve lost track of the fact that by all indications, a hostile foreign government apparently succeeded in influencing the result of the American presidential election. Today the Director of the NSA spoke on the topic:
There shouldn’t be any doubt in anybody’s minds, this was not something that was done casually, this was not something that was done by chance, this was not a target that was selected purely arbitrarily. This was a conscious effort by a nation-state to attempt to achieve a specific effect.
One hopes that once some of the immediate post-election excitement dies down, this will get much more attention than it has been.
