This is pure, military industrial secrecy state warmongering and budget justifying. "Targeted" is a vague word. "Affected" is a vague word. Who exactly is doing what in the cyber realm is extremely difficult to ascertain. The claims are confusing and varied...at least as through the prism of the ignorant, mainstream, corporate press. The press sticks to its usual habit of not quoting any outside experts to evaluate what these reports say "Homeland" Security is telling the states, and certainly not skeptical experts. Not even to provide context for these claims.

"'What this boils down to is that someone tried the door knob and it was locked,' said Reid Magney, a spokesman for the Wisconsin Elections Commission.
"In June, Samuel Liles, the Department of Homeland Security's acting director of the Office of Intelligence and Analysis Cyber Division, testified that 21 states had been affected by the Russian hacking and said that vote-tallying machines were unaffected."

And through it all the final absurdity of not mentioning how Interstate Crosscheck really did skew the results of the election in many states. All this together adds up to disinformation, that air of unreality we tend to get from such quarters.

And, after spending over 700 million dollars trying to buy the presidency, with unlimited help from her puppet master Putin, and the corrupt DNC, the frail feeble elderly unstable careless reckless drunken Hillary still lost.

It's going to be fun watching Trump be re-elected.

Of course a pro-NAZI tabloid like the Washington Post is going to blame Russia.

More fake news, 17 intelligence agencies have all said there was no Russian hacking or interference in the election, James Clapper has been debunked, look no further than Seth Rich, the data was leaked, not hacked.

Trump Supporters are, obviously, the roughly Half of American Voters, that Drugs have completely rotted their brains.
So now, they simply live in a Mind-World of Complete Denial of ANYTHING they don't WANT to believe!
I say, again, that all Voters should be required to pass a Drug Test, and a Sanity Test before they are allowed to vote...and ALL Candidates for President, should be required to do the SAME THING before they are allowed to run!
TRUMP WOULD HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED, and we wouldn't have to be going through all this Hell that he's putting us, and the World, through, NOW!

Fake news media is at it again.

Homeland Security spokesman Scott McConnell said the following: "As part of our ongoing information sharing efforts, today DHS notified the Secretary of State or other chief election officer in each state of any potential targeting we were aware of in their state leading up to the 2016 election."

The information said nothing about Russia. NBC and Reuters are guilty of intentional distortions rivaling the doublespeak of Orwelle's "1984". Even the outrageous Leftist propaganda operative CNN said the identified States "were potentially targeted by Russian government-linked cyber actors." "Potentially targeted" is quite the insidious phrase.

The Trump Supporters are too high on drugs, to worry about anything, or to control themselves, either...just like the Holly Bobo Killers!

Just because you do not agree with it does not make it "fake news". Where there is smoke, there is fire. I hope that Muellar can come to the bottom of all of this. It seems to be that every American would want to find out the truth and stop it. If not, all Americans are in jeopardy. We are definitely losing the war in cyberspace. Are you OK with this?

Great Point. But the NAZI MSM will always blame Russia because of their role in defeating Hitler. It is really that simple.

To me, if there was an attempt at hacking, it should be mandatory to start with who owns the machinery, who makes it, who services it. Not saying that it was an inside job, but certainly that is where the greatest damage could be done.

Yep maybe, and Oklahoma was one of them. Let's see they are the only state where all 77 counties voted against Obama both elections. Wonder what the Russians were going to do..........besides nothing.

Of course liberals are whining children. They believe that the tooth fairy will come in the night and bestow them with all that life requires for free. Trump is keeping the tooth fairy at bay until the far left can once again bamboozle another group of ignorant youth that believe in the tooth fairy.

It's fake news that has been debunked, 17 intelligence agencies have all said there was no Russian interference or hacking during the election, the data was leaked by Seth Rick.

Where there's smoke, there is an inferno, the only collusion with Russian oligarchs involved the frail feeble elderly unstable careless reckless drunken Hillary and the Podesta brothers.

James Clapper has been proven to be a liar, had it not been for his help along with James Comey and Loretta Lynch Hillary would have been indicted before the election.

Well, none as far as Trump is concerned, there is a lot of smoke around the cozy relationship Hillary had with her puppet master Putin.

Oh, and if you paid any attention at all, Muellar has no intention of getting to the bottom of it, he is a distraction, the only collusion involved Hillary and her puppet master Putin,
