Russia has been trying to intervene in the Democratic primaries to aid Senator Bernie Sanders, according to people familiar with the matter, and intelligence officials recently briefed him about Russian interference in the election, Mr. Sanders said on Friday.

Cripe Sanders could probably run for office in Russia.

It would be good for them in either win. The opportunist is great, but a really passionate Russia lover is a decent second-best.

According to Joe, it has to be real:

I wish someone were keeping track of how many stories like this come out from an unnamed official, are dismissed . . . as hearsay, then later confirmed to be true (sometimes within a matter of hours).

I'd bet that close to 95% of them are proven true.

Hey, Sanders should be glad Trump is President.

They were warned.

If it were Obama they would already have spies in the Sanders campaign.

Russia assisted Sanders and Trump both in 2016. It should excite everyone to have the major political parties running candidates promoted by Russia, right?

America's own disinformation games are already under way, and domestic players are in the throes.

The Kremlin's also in luck: Bernie Sanders, a candidate it allegedly sought to buoy in 2016, is emerging as the Democratic front-runner. (As my colleague Ronald Brownstein pointed out, the Democratic field pummeled Michael Bloomberg at this week's debate"leaving Sanders relatively unscathed and doing little to thwart his rise.)

"If the election does end up being a Trump-Sanders face-off," Kathy argues, "one of the Kremlin's favored candidates from 2016 is guaranteed a win. They are far apart ideologically but nearly equally suited to the Kremlin's interests, both in being divisive at home and in encouraging U.S. restraint abroad."

New: Trump's new intel chief Ric Grenell, widely known as a Trump loyalist, called Trump "dangerous" and spoke out regularly in favor of John Kasich in 2016, according to deleted tweets we reviewed. He also called Trump "reckless" and "unserious."

Trump's new intel chief was a Trump critic in 2016

Richard Grenell, the acting director of national intelligence, has been described as a Trump loyalist. But that wasn't always true.

Russia Interfering in Primaries to Aid Sanders

The Russians are brilliant. They're sowing (more) chaos into the Democratic Party.

This simply give the Bruces of America (who blame Bernie for Hillary's loss in 2016) more reason to be angry at Bernie. So, when the General Election comes, they'll sit it out, vote third party, or vote for Trump.

It's almost like this has all already played out.

It's the same voting strategy voters in open primary states like Texas use. In Texas, we don't have to register a party. So the Republicans will vote (support) the weakest candidate in the democratic primary to help him win. The weakest candidate would be easier to beat in the general election.

For the same reason it is stupid to worry about it now, ten years ago, twenty years ago...
There are ALWAYS Russian submarines off our coast snoofy, and always have been (well, soviet) sine the start of the cold war.

This doesn't answer why it's stupid.
It simply says the thing people are being stupid about is a common occurrence.
Suicide is a common occurrence too, 21 veterans will do it today. Some people worry about stuff like that. Others call those people stupid.

It's answered with a "for the same reason."

I thought you'd be smart enough to understand why no one worries about Russian subs off the coast of the US since the cold war.

My bad. You apparently, by your own admission, are not as smart as I gave you credit for. Ask the next person you see with an education level Freshman in HS or above.

I'll try not to overestimate your intelligence again.

FBI warned Trump in 2016 Russians would try to infiltrate his campaign

In the weeks after he became the Republican nominee on July 19, 2016, Donald Trump was warned that foreign adversaries, including Russia, would probably try to spy on and infiltrate his campaign, according to multiple government officials familiar with the matter.

The warning came in the form of a high-level counterintelligence briefing by senior FBI officials, the officials said. A similar briefing was given to Hillary Clinton, they added. They said the briefings, which are commonly provided to presidential nominees, were designed to educate the candidates and their top aides about potential threats from foreign spies.

The candidates were urged to alert the FBI about any suspicious overtures to their campaigns, the officials said.

Trump was told in July or August 2016 about the Russians. The first Carter Page FISA warrant was in October.

Weird how you can't just explain why the fear is baseless and unfounded.
They're nuclear subs, right?

#106 All I've heard is that the Russians are following their 2016 playbook. You could read the Mueller report and/or Mueller's indictment of the Russians for more details.

Here's an article Rsty posted last night that describes a few ways:

Russian misinformation agents and hackers worked to boost Trump's electoral chances, but also threw some of their support behind Sanders as he ran against Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary. Special counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of the Internet Research Agency troll farm detailed how IRA operatives were instructed to "use any opportunity to criticize Hillary and the rest (except Sanders and Trump--we support them)." In the summer of 2016, pro-Sanders IRA Facebook accounts spread rumors that Clinton had stolen the Iowa caucus from Sanders and that her campaign had gotten illegal mail-in votes in Broward County, Florida.

"The IRA's left-leaning accounts focused their efforts on denigrating Clinton," concluded the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence's definitive look at Russian interference, "and supporting the candidacy of either fellow Democrat candidate Bernie Sanders or Green Party candidate Jill Stein, at the expense of Hillary Clinton."

Russia has already gone after Biden aggressively, likely hacking into Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company whose connection to Hunter Biden has been the focus of conspiratorial narrative by Trump and his allies. Moscow's disinformation efforts in support of Sanders once again focused on Iowa, whose caucus earlier this month was beset by technical difficulties (which, to be clear, have not been connected to foreign hacking).

"We saw Russia amplifying conspiracy theories suggesting that delays in reporting returns were part of an effort to deny Senator Sanders a clear win," says Jessica Brandt, head of policy and research for the Alliance for Securing Democracy, a bipartisan nonprofit that tracks and counteracts Russian disinformation. "We also saw them highlighting theories purporting murky ties between other candidates and the company that created the caucus app."

Buy Facebook and delete all the posts?

He has loudly and publicly denounced any foreign assistance. It's a far cry from "if it's what you say it is, i love it." But you rounding it up to that is probably exactly what Russia wants. Congrats on being a dupe.
