How Russia Hacked the DNC Emails

We begin this sordid tale in June of 2016 when a hacker going by the handle Guccifer 2.0 hacked into the Democratic National Convention's database and stole "emails". In his first blog post Guccifer claims he is a lone romanian hacker hell bent on exposing "The Illuminati" Yes... This set the conspiracy theorists all up in a frenzy. I don't know if the Illuminati exists. I do know Russia exists.... So....
Anyway, back to 2016... The buzzword highlighted in everyone's talking points were emails. It's a little more than emails, Kids. That data contained candidate assessments with strengths and weaknesses relevant to swing States like Pennsylvania and Florida, analysis of demographics and campaign recruit material, among others.

Guccifer sent the data to Assange... Assange began leaking emails to discredit the democratic national party. Assange wasn't the only person to receive the data. People like GOP political operative in Florida, Aaron Nevins also received a database. He proceeded to use this information to target swing voters in Florida.
Meanwhile, Roger Stone or "The Penguin" (that's the costume he chooses at Halloween each year) kept on his media campaign to assure everyone Guccifer was a lone hacker, not a Russian. You may have remembered seeing him on EVERY news channel spewing these lies.
Meanwhile, on the campaign trail, Trump uses the leaked 'emails' against Hilary, invites Russian hackers to find the missing emails... he believes they will be rewarded greatly by the US Fake News media. Sigh.
Now. Flash Forward to the shit show We are experiencing today: Just recently Guccifer failed to activate the VPN client before logging in, so he was able to be traced to the Russian Foreign Military Intelligence Agency - GRU AKA Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces office on Grizodubovoy St in Moscow. Where is Moscow, Kids? Say it with Me... RUSSIA!
***Please don't ask me what a VPN does... I don't know. Go have coffee with your favorite tech geek and have them bot-splain it to you. All I know is the exit was in France. Good Luck****
So this week, Mueller has now taken over the Guccifer investigation and folded it into the Russia investigation. Will we get Guccifer? Probably not. He never left Russia. I'm sure they killed him for screwing up and now knowing too much. My guess is that guy was tortured or gassed or poisoned or whatever they do over there to people who make mistakes. And now you know why Roger Stone just looks really, really sad all of the time and has stopped speaking with the press.
As for Assange... That mother fu**** needs to come on out of that embassy and take in the ass like a MAN.
And that's I really feel. Namaste!
