    Donald J Trump might be the enabler of the Russian Cyber-Attack, he must be the Russian Agent put in place by Putin!!!

  2. There is nothing “virtual” about the “REAL” results of their attacks. Is there?

  3. I lay this cyber-attack, cyber threat and National and international violation at the feet of Donald Trump and the Republican Party! Donald Trump in the Republican Party have all but enabled Putin since the day Donald Trump took office!

  4. It’s like somehow they had a political power helping them.

  5. Inside job, via Trump.

  6. Start with Trump ,he’s close to putin .he loves him.

  7. tRump the Russian asset colluding with Russia yet again.

  8. Putin showing his power over the pupit POTUS clown

  9. It wasn’t a cyber attack. Frump gave Putin the passwords during one of their private calls.

  10. Imagine what will come out when he walks out that door on January 20th.

  11. Putin knows that his puppet, Conald J Swamp, won’t challenge him.

  12. I don’t think there’s anything “virtual” about it.

    Donald = “Russia if your listening , here is pass word to the Government computer system”



    • Ahhh these Trump trolls… Deny everything logical, rational, sane, and obvious… Embrace everything illogical, irrational, insane, and baseless.

      Trump is one of the most transparent politicians we have EVER had. Not intentionally, just due to his utter incompetence. Anyone who is willing to accept reality, despite any political affiliation, can follow the glaringly obvious clues and deduce that this “President” has been compromised from day one. I have NO allegiance to ANY political party for the very reason we see playing out in our country right now. We have been manipulated into believing we must swear allegiance to one party or the other. Then we are told to despise the other party at all costs and deny any obvious evidence implicating members of our chosen party in any unsavory light. If we all “step away” from allegiance to ANY political party for a minute and just focus on what we have seen with our own eyes and heard with our own ears, we can begin to see reality. Trump has been compromised from the start. Even if just due to his extremely numerous conflicts of interest related to business dealings he has in numerous countries around the world. EVERY President should be forced to divest from ALL foreign business dealings BEFORE they are ever allowed to begin serving our country. They should also be forced to turn over 10 or more years of tax and business records so we can ensure there’s no conflicts of interest that can hold influence over them. Otherwise THIS IS WHAT WE WILL END UP WITH!

    • @S Russell Thank you.well said

  14. Is this a cover story so when Trump starts selling out secrets, he will blame the leaks on this hack ?

  15. The new battlefields are cyber battlefields and America is basically fighting with sticks and stones while its enemies fight with missiles.

  16. In his fancy dacha Putin is smiling to himself while pouring a cup of black tea and saying ” Da , da Donaldivich Ivan tRumpsky well done. Very well done. Spasibo “

  17. Gee do you wonder who opened this access to Putin??

  18. Trump probably gave them the code, he is trying to dedtroy us after all.

  19. does no one remember when Trump told Russia ON AIR to hack Hillary’s email and then they did… come on.
