The alleged personal cell phone numbers and email addresses of nearly all Democrats in the House of Representatives have been released by the Russia-linked hacker that took credit for the digital break-ins of multiple Democratic organizations.
The dump came as part of a large release late Friday of documents allegedly stolen from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which acknowledged last month that it had been hacked. Other leaked documents include campaign overviews of specific House races, DCCC event memos and committee passwords.
A hacker going by the name “Guccifer 2.0” — who claims to be behind the DCCC digital assault, as well as an intrusion at the Democratic National Committee — released the information.
The article goes on to reveal that researchers are convinced that Guccifer 2.0 has ties to Russian military intelligence.
Those are Putin's people.
If this were being done by some shadowy group it could be chalked off to hi-jinks or simply a group trying to spread general anarchy.
But when the Russian government does it there is going to be a real definite purpose behind their actions.
Publishing this personal information from Democrats in the House causes mayhem, disrupts reelection campaigns, and causes the Dems to focus on something other than working together.
This only benefits Donald Trump and the Republican party.
There can no longer be any doubt that the Russians are working to help to get Donald Trump elected and help Republicans gain more power in this country.
Now imagine the response by the conservative media if that were found to be true on the other side of the aisle.
