Volume 1 of Senate Intel investigation into Russian interference is out. 

You have to be joking. Check out the first finding. Extensive hacking activity since 2014. We can’t tell you anything about it (Redacted). No votes were changed though.

Yes, and it worked really well

This is why Russian hacking combined with influence is so powerful. Double edged sword - Mitigation steps can still undermine public confidence

Russia was in a powerful position but chose not to delete or change voter data in Illinois

CHeck this out. Russia was attempting to send election observers to polling stations. Why? Maybe provocations? Or to take real time photos for shaking confidence in the integrity of the vote

Oh boy....not good

I think the recommendations in the Senate Intel report are good. But also find the minority view by @RonWyden a great read. This report makes me have doubts about local ability to protect elections & ensure integrity of votes

Again, more evidence of the synergy between hacking and influence. Russia was preparing to drive us crazy if Clinton won.
