Election Hack Reality Check: Did the Russians Hack the 2016 Election?

John Schindler, a former analyst at the National Security Agency, wrote an insightful piece [1] debunking the Democratic Party-liberal line that Vladimir Putin hacked the 2016 presidential election: Instead, Schindler made the point that the Russians did hack the Democratic National Committee e-mails, but the Russians did not hack the election and did not hack election voting machines.

Too bad the liberal media and Democratic Party do not understand basic signals intelligence (known as SIGINT). SIGINT is what Russia did with the DNC, which is gathering information on another country. Yet, it’s a cautionary tale for the Republicans and Americans about the signals intelligence capabilities of the Russians and to be wary of future hacks.
