Russia: "There were contacts" with Donald Trump's campaign before election

It's a KGB tactic, to weaken a country from within. Trump and his supporters have been used.

Just wait till Trump's tax returns are made public, if they ever are.
Russia: "There were contacts" with Donald Trump's campaign before election

MOSCOW -- A top Russian diplomat said Moscow had contacts with Donald Trump’s campaign ahead of his election as president.

Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov was quoted as telling the Interfax news agency Thursday that “there were contacts” with influential people in Trump’s circle. “I don’t say that all of them, but a whole array of them supported contacts with Russian representatives.”

The report did not give further details.

If this is true, then it might eventually get really bad for Trump in the years ahead. Then again, on the flip side, as you pointed out often when attacking Trump, this could be false misonformation from the Russians meant to divide us even further with the election of a controversial candidate, now President elect, thereby weakening us even further and eroding our foundational beliefs in the system.

The cause of the "flip flopping" to which you refer is your habit of hearing what you want to hear.

For the last month or so I've noted numerous times how the Russian state-run media has been hammering the US and our electoral process while it's been praising Putin. You've ignored my reporting because it doesn't fit in with what you want to hear.

This malady from which you suffer is so acute that you offer up the NYT as a source to be trusted, expecting me and others to ignore how often "your side" speaks ill of the NYT, and rightly I'd add given that it's the liberal version of Faux News.

Here's the latest:
Russian hackers throw Trump victory party with new spear phishing campaign

Less than six hours after Donald Trump won the US presidential election, a new spear phishing campaign was launched by a Russia-based group. The group is apparently one of the two organizations connected to the breach at the Democratic National Committee, and it's responsible for nearly a decade of intelligence collection campaigns against military and diplomatic targets.

Security firm Volexity refers to the group as "the Dukes" based on the malware family being utilized. According to a report by Volexity founder Steven Adair, the group is known for a malware family known as "the Dukes"—also referred to as APT29 or "Cozy Bear." The Dukes' primary targets in this latest round of attacks appear to be non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and policy think tanks in the US.

According to Volexity's data, the threat group sent e-mails from purpose-built Gmail accounts and what may be a compromised e-mail account from Harvard University's Faculty of Arts and Science. The phishing e-mails dropped a new variant of backdoor malware dubbed "PowerDuke" by Volexity, and this malware gave attackers remote access to compromised systems.

Volexity has been tracking a number of campaigns based on PowerDuke since August, when some "highly targeted" malicious e-mails were sent to individuals at a number of policy research organizations in the US and Europe. The e-mails were disguised as messages from the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), Transparency International, the Council on Foreign Relations, the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), and Eurasia Group. Another wave of similar e-mails targeted universities in October.

The latest round of e-mails, sent out on November 8 and 9, "were sent in large quantities to different individuals across many organizations and individuals focusing in national security, defense, international affairs, public policy, and European and Asian studies," Adair wrote. "Two of the attacks purported to be messages forwarded on from the Clinton Foundation giving insight and perhaps a postmortem analysis into the elections. Two of the other attacks purported to be eFax links or documents pertaining to the election’s outcome being revised or rigged. The last attack claimed to be a link to a PDF download on 'Why American Elections Are Flawed.'"
