    https://www.yahoo.com/news/exclusive-hacked-emails-of-dnc-oppo-researcher-point-to-russians-and-wider-penetration-154121061.htmlJust weeks after she started preparing opposition research files on Donald Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort last spring, Democratic National Committee consultant Alexandra Chalupa got an alarming message when she logged into her personal Yahoo email account.

    “Important action required,” read a pop-up box from a Yahoo security team that is informally known as “the Paranoids.” “We strongly suspect that your account has been the target of state-sponsored actors.”

    Chalupa — who had been drafting memos and writing emails about Manafort’s connection to pro-Russian political leaders in Ukraine — quickly alerted top DNC officials. “Since I started digging into Manafort, these messages have been a daily oc­­­­currence on my Yahoo account despite changing my p­­a­ssword often,” she wrote in a May 3 email to Luis Miranda, the DNC’s communications director, which included an attached screengrab of the image of the Yahoo security warning.

    “I was freaked out,” Chalupa, who serves as director of “ethnic engagement” for the DNC, told Yahoo News in an interview, noting that she had been in close touch with sources in Kiev, Ukraine, including a number of investigative journalists, who had been providing her with information about Manafort’s political and business dealings in that country and Russia.

    “This is really scary,” she said.

    Cybersecurity Experts Say Russia Hacked the Democrats

    Bob Gourley, a former chief technology officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency and now the co-founder and partner Cognitio, a cybersecurity consultancy, told me Sunday that he thinks the Russians did it.

    “The software code that I have seen from the hack had all the telltale signs of being Russian, including code re-used from other attacks,”

    If true, it's total proof that Crooked Hillary isn't bright enough to outsmart Trump. I get a hearty chuckle out of her campaign being so outraged about someone else rigging shit.

    Maybe Putin just wants revenge against the Clintons who conned him out of money for US Uranium mines:

    Haha... After spending months denying Hillary's server had been hacked, now all of a sudden... they are concerned with Russians (Guccifer 2.0).

    Many of us knew all along that a home brew server in a garage probably would be hacked immediately. The DNC wikileaks easily prove the case. How much do they have on Hillary? Russia probably prefers she get elected as they have the goods on her.

    How does it feel when someone else rigs the game?
