Description

At the heart of President Trump’s impeachment is his request that Ukraine investigate how his political rival, former Vice President Joseph R.

New reporting from The Times suggests that Russian hackers may be trying to fulfill that request — and potentially hack into the 2020 election itself. Guests: Nicole Perlroth, who covers cybersecurity for The Times, spoke with Oren Falkowitz, a former analyst at the National Security Agency and co-founder of the cybersecurity company Area 1.

We must go retro...PAPER BALLOTS, PAPER BALLOTS, PAPER BALLOTS and they must be held under lock and key with 24 hour guard in each and every voting district all across this country. We have to find a way to keep our voting data out of Russian hands. One sure way? Don’t put it on a computer. Duh!

Whatever they don’t find, they’ll make up. That’s for sure. The real question at the heart of this matter: Will people be as gullible, as accepting? I’d like to think not. But this is America and Donald Trump is still president.
