Russian Hackers Allegedly in Possession of Damaging Info Seeking Hush Money from Liberal Groups

Russian hackers are targeting U.S. progressive groups in a new wave of attacks, scouring the organizations’ emails for embarrassing details and attempting to extract hush money, according to two people familiar with probes being conducted by the FBI and private security firms.

    I hope enough evidence is collected to prove that soros is indeed behind most turmoil so that he can get his comeuppance.finally.

    • We already know for a fact that the old Soviet KGB archives contain a file on Joe Biden, who back in the day they considered as a possible intelligence “asset”. I wonder what other information they have on Democrat “elders” from that period that would lead them to that assessment — that they could be possible intelligence assets for International Communism? I wonder if Communist Cuba has similar information on a younger generation of American Democrats, such as Obama, or militant progressives such as Canada’s Justin Trudeau?

      I personally think a lot of these people on the Left have been “blackmail-able” for many years, always due to their own ignorance and naivete when dealing with totalitarian dictators.

    As Churchill would say, the targets here are modest men with much to be modest about.

    In Russia, corruption in government is not just a feature, but is practically expected. Hence why if anyone ever told a Russian about Putin’s time as the Deputy Mayor of St. Petersburg (Where he got his start in Russian politics) and all the corruption he was involved with, they would be met with an indifferent “Yeah? So?”

    In the West, corruption is largely frowned upon, and blatant corruption is highly despised, and anyone with something to hide has much cause to be afraid. Hence, why they are sitting ducks for cloak n’ dagger attacks from nations like Russia who only need to reveal the scandals and watch the fireworks ensue.

    Either the hackers bleed liberals dry, or the liberals don’t pay up and the hackers release the goods.

    Either way, we win.

      Or, in a best-case scenario, the hackers bleed the leftists dry, and
      then release the goods anyway.
