New intelligence shows that Putin became personally involved in the computer breach and directed how hacked material from Democrats was leaked, two senior U.S. officials say.Putin’s objectives were multifaceted, a high-level intelligence source told NBC News. What began as a ‘vendetta’ against Hillary Clinton morphed into an effort to discredit American politics, especially among foreign allies.
This story is now being widely cited by the world’s media. But is it based on false news?
NBC cites but does not identify sources in this story. Until clear evidence is published by an unbiased source, I’m inclined not to believe this NB headline.
As for Putin, he’s still more fast footed than his adversaries.
