Our Hacking Detected Their Hacking!

Note the unacknowledged irony in this New York Times story, “Putin Led a Complex Cyberattack Scheme to Aid Trump, Report Finds”:

“The public report lacked the evidence that intelligence officials said was included in the classified version… [including] the harvesting of computer data from ‘implants’ that the United States and its allies have put in Russian computer networks.” 

Why does the US government believe that the Russians hacked the DNC’s and John Podesta’s email accounts? Because US government hackers who have infiltrated Russian computers say so.
