DHS Official Notifies 21 States No Votes Changed By Attempted Russian Hacking

DHS Official Notifies 21 States No Votes Changed By Attempted Russian Hacking
The Department of Homeland Security notified 21 states Friday that Russian hackers attempted unsuccessfully to interfere with their voting systems in the 2016 election.

I am not sure how to take this report only to say it looks like the Russians were trying to help Hillary Clinton rather than Donald Trump during the last Presidential Election.

In June 2017, Jeanette Manfra, Acting Undersecretary for Cybersecurity and Communications at DHS testified before the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee that ‘the owners of the systems within those 21 states have been notified. How could this be?

Give me a little room with this one. In Wisconsin, Trump had a lead, a small one but he still had one. Clinton never visited the stated thinking she had it wrapped up, as she did Michigan. Why in God’s name would she not visit Wisconsin, set foot in the state unless she “knew” it would go for her? If Russia was going to hack Wisconsin, why hack it for the individual who was leading already?

One more thing that some of us might have to eat crow. If this report is correct, the claims that we have been fighting against for the last eight months seem to put us in the wrong. If the Department Of Homeland Security is contacting 21 states informing them there were Russian attempts to interfere with voting systems, then were we wrong?

We’ve been given reports that no votes were changes for a few months now, but most of us have been yelling at the top of our lungs Russia didn’t even attempt to hack the elections and Democrats were sore losers. This report sort of makes that argument true.

The Department of Homeland Security notified 21 states Friday that Russian hackers attempted unsuccessfully to interfere with their voting systems in the 2016 election.

DHS reported that no votes were changed by Russian hacking, Reuters reports. DHS refused to disclose which state governments it approached, but Wisconsin officials made it known that they were among the group.

Wisconsin Elections Commission Administrator Michael Haas said that he was informed that “Russian government cyber actors” targeted his state’s voter registration systems.

Russian hackers “scanned internet-connected election infrastructure likely seeking specific vulnerabilities such as access to voter registration databases, but the attempt to exploit vulnerabilities was unsuccessful,” Haas said.

In June, DHS informed Congress that 21 states were targeted by hackers, but that while a few were breached, no votes were changes.

Wisconsin was a decisive state in the 2016 presidential election, casting its 10 electoral votes for Republican nominee Donald Trump for its first time backing a Republican since 1984. In the wake of the election, several analyses pointed to Democrat Hillary Clinton’s failure to visit Wisconsin as a major blunder during the campaign.

I have to admit I didn’t think this was true but under a Trump administration, if DHS is reporting this, then I might have to accept the story and move forward. I still have to think, Russians were trying to help the Clintons and not the Trumps. Liberals are more toward socialism and communism that Trump would ever be.

Trump promoted the United States and its values all through the campaign. Russia wouldn’t back unless they were becoming 100 percent capitalism. There’s a lot of confusion; I am sure you agree.
