Remember when the media, lefties and Never Trumpers were howling that President Trump had failed to stand up to Russia?
I predicted that the Dem 2020 candidate will run on restoring relations with Russia, the way Obama did. And with the INF toast, an America presence in the Arctic, and moments like this, the media is starting to clumsily pivot to, “Trump will get us into a war with Russia.”
The US military’s Cyber Command has begun targeting Russian operatives believed to be attempting to influence the 2018 midterm elections as part of a broad effort in coordination with several government agencies, an administration official confirmed to CNN.
The operations are aimed at making meddling more difficult.
It’s CNN so the article mentions several administration officials, but not Trump. Also, no context is provided. Context like this.
Former President Barack Obama’s cybersecurity czar confirmed Wednesday that former national security adviser Susan Rice told him to “stand down” in response to Russian cyber attacks during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Michael Daniel, whose official title was “cybersecurity coordinator,” confirmed the stand-down order during a Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing held to review the Obama and President Donald Trump’s administrations’ policy response to Russian election interference.
Old narrative: Trump is failing to stand up to Russia. Get ready for the new narrative, Trump is standing up to Russia too much.
