Stop freaking saying Russia "hacked" the election

Reporters and politicos are muddying the waters on President Trump’s alleged ties to foreign interests by claiming inaccurately that Russia “hacked” the 2016 presidential election.

The Russians were involved in stealing emails from accounts belonging to Democratic National Committee staffers and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, according to a declassified U.S. intelligence report.

“We assess with high confidence that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election, the consistent goals of which were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency,” the report read.
