It should be an interesting day. Here are the relevant Trump tweets which address the hacking.
The "Intelligence" briefing on so-called "Russian hacking" was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!
Julian Assange said "a 14 year old could have hacked Podesta" - why was DNC so careless? Also said Russians did not give him the info!
@FoxNews: Julian Assange on U.S. media coverage: “It’s very dishonest.” #Hannity " More dishonest than anyone knows"
Somebody hacked the DNC but why did they not have "hacking defense" like the RNC has and why have they not responded to the terrible things they did and said (like giving the questions to the debate to H). A total double standard! Media, as usual, gave them a pass.
The dishonest media likes saying that I am in Agreement with Julian Assange - wrong. I simply state what he states, it is for the people to make up their own minds as to the truth. The media lies to make it look like I am against "Intelligence" when in fact I am a big fan!
How did NBC get "an exclusive look into the top secret report he (Obama) was presented?" Who gave them this report and why? Politics!
The Democratic National Committee would not allow the FBI to study or see its computer info after it was supposedly hacked by Russia, so how and why are they so sure about hacking if they never even requested an examination of the computer servers? What is going on?
That most recent one
"So how and why are they so sure about hacking if they never even requested an examination of the computer servers? What is going on?"
He probably could have asked them himself if he bothered taking his briefings

Details of how to hack various systems are shared out, there is even a free hackers tool kit which does most of the heavy lifting for you. Of course hacking a system which you arent asked to do is very wrong and will get you jailed. Ethical hacking when you are invited to try break someones network is perfectly legal.
In truth the hack could have been done by anyone and just becuase it has the 'hallmarks' of 2 hackers - that does not mean in anyway shape or form it was them. They are just using various methods which by now other hackers will also know about.
Rather than shouting about foul play - there are 2 things that should have some light focused on them.
1. Why their servers werent hardened and been subject to the usual penetration tests
2. Much more importantly why hasnt the main stream media focussed on what was actually discovered - the down right corrupt way in which the democratic party and the clintons tried to frig their own nomination process.
Im guessing there are so many skeletons in the closet on that one that everyone wants to sweep it under the carpet and just focus on the old evil empire trick.
ps Wikileaks also published the info about Sarah Palin (Republican) and what she was up to in trying to avoid the freedom of information laws in the US.
It is baffling she is still a politician.
Someone said it yesterday on reddit. If the media changed the term "hacking" to "guessed their password", people would take password security far more seriously!.
Latest Trump tweet.
I am asking the chairs of the House and Senate committees to investigate top secret intelligence shared with NBC prior to me seeing it.
I watched all the Assange interview - and hope others do to. Having watched some of the MSM reporting of this - it seems misconstrued to say the least.

How to tell when it's trump tweeting and when it's not.
Assange is correct though - if someone says they believe it was the Russians - then you can bet your wage packet - it wasnt them.
Both Obama and the various 'services' have been rather cute in their terms of language according to Assange and they try and let the media believe they have the facts but cant release the info.
Trump was right to ask why NBC news had the info before he did. The various services here need to realise they answer to him and do what he wants - not the other way round. Trump may well do what Ronald Reagan did with the air traffic controllers that went on strike again and again and again - he sacked them.
Indeed, CNN I think were the latest to issue an apology over inaccurate reporting. I hope Trump continues with this - maybe it will make them report facts rather than self interested fiction
Actually, I think that, for better or worse, the last person to talk in this piece has got it right.
The fella in that BBC piece was spot-on, you have to view a news report and then find a 180° opposite opinion, and draw your own conclusions.
I think it unlikely that the Russian expulsions would have been instigated without good reason. Such things are usually reciprocated and the fallout could have escalated had it been a spurious action - and the fact that the Russians are happy to wait until Trump is in the driving seat says something.
"....As far as hacking, I think it was Russia. But I think we also get hacked by other countries and other people. And I — I can say that you know when — when we lost 22 million names and everything else that was hacked recently, they didn’t make a big deal out of that. That was something that was extraordinary. That was probably China."
I find it strange that people have called Trump a "traitor" to America.
The world is pretty sick of American dominance and foreign policy.
Being a traitor to America in regard to the current norm is probably good for the majority. Why would the world want a continuation of the current American foreign policy??. What is morally right about continuing it!.
A guy yesterday on twitter said that the news conference was the least statesman like event he has seen. "A circus", "I don't know what I am seeing, I am shaking".
George Bush played golf while talking bout dropping bombs on Iraq.

Using proxy IP addresses, using the TOR network, hacking via bot net from exploited machines all over the world - and when you have hacked in and got the info you wanted - you leave a little calling card to make it seem you are someone else from somewhere else.
I dont care who says what - you can never 100% say it was person A from Country B. They would be far better spending their time and money on hardening their servers and securing their networks for a start. And as far as the democrats do - stop saying one thing in public and the complete opposite on emails and documents you leave on your servers.
Blimey lads, even Trump himself concedes it....
But it's pretty clear to anyone who isn't grasping at straws that 'thinks' in this context from a fairly stubborn man like Trump is as good as conceding. If he said conclusively 'it was Russia' then he'd be undermining himself in humiliating fashion just before he takes on the job.
And you know this, but nice try at doing a Feedback
You're working hard, I do credit you that, but it has no legs.
