    Liar, liar. That is a false summary of that survey. Less than 1% think it is THE MOST IMPORTANT problem. That does not in any way, shape, or form mean that they "don't give a rat's ass" about it.

    The idea that Trump would even think about turning over a former ambassador to Putin for interrogation is beyond absurd. Maybe he doesn't know that people Putin doesn't like or who are inconvenient for him tend to turn up dead. Maybe we can also ask Kim Yung Un who he wants.

    Yeah, it terms of important problems it is very much into the "don't give a rat's ass" territory... The dems should be focusing on something that folks give a rat's ass about instead, like immigration/illegal aliens...

    I don't know about the former ambassador but Drumpf should give Bill Browder up to the Ruskies for not giving him any of that $400 million to his campaign.

    Trump already wants another meeting with his owner. Hopefully the GOP finds some patriotism and backbone and start caring about sovereignty and national security over domestic issues and partisan power.

    The Senate just voted 98-0 to tell Trump that the idea to send Americans over to Putin is a bunch of crap.

    Sarah Huckleberry Sanders rushes to the microphone minutes before the Senate vote goes down to tell us the President now doesn't agree with the idea. LOL. What a clown show this idiot president is.

    Bill Browder isn't an american... No rat's ass given.

    William Felix Browder (born 23 April 1964)[1] is an American-born British financier. He is the CEO and co-founder of Hermitage Capital Management, an investment fund that at one time was the largest foreign portfolio investor in Russia.[2] He gave up his U.S. citizenship in 1998 to avoid paying taxes related to foreign investment.

    Putin was asking for more than those two. It really wouldn't have mattered because Trump wouldn't have the authority to do it anyway. He's not a king yet. There is an extradition process and no court would have given the ok.

    In Bill Browder's case why would there be an extradition process? He is not an American. He gave up his protection as an American citizen in 1998 by giving up his citizenship and not paying taxes. We should just deport him to Russia.

    As for the actual American citizens I thought the deal was we allow Putin's boys to interrogate then in trade for interrogating his hackers to get to the bottom of this election messing around business. Why does that require extraditing anyone? We send Mueller over to Russia. They send their interrogators over here. The former ambassador and the others all stay in the US... except for the tax avoider Bill Browder. We send him wrapped up in a box to Putin.

    Even so he gave up his US citizenship just to avoid taxes... if you don't pay your protection money to Uncle Donald then you don't deserve protection.

    Even if they come here there is still the fifth amendment. 98-0. You may express your frustration with that to your local representatives if you want.

    I don't think Bill Browder is even living in the USA any more:
    Officials with the U.S Department of State had no serious plan to assist Browder find a new home in 2006, after he renounced his American rights for tax reasons.

    It seems he has already been deported... too bad. Maybe Drumpf can just let Putin know where they can find him instead.

    The Russians Who Hacked The DNC Have Targeted At Least Three 2018 Campaigns, Microsoft Says
    Six days after the US charged 12 Russian hackers with stealing and leaking DNC emails, a Microsoft executive says the same agency is targeting the midterm elections.


    The same Russian intelligence agency charged with hacking Democrats’ emails in 2016 has targeted at least three candidates running for election in 2018, a Microsoft executive said.

    Speaking on a panel at the Aspen Security Forum on Thursday, Tom Burt, Microsoft's vice president for customer security and trust, said that his team had discovered a spear-phishing campaign targeting three candidates running for election in 2018. Analysts traced them to a group Microsoft has nicknamed Strontium, which is closely tracked by every major threat intelligence company and is widely accepted to be run by the GRU, Russia’s military intelligence agency.

    Burt declined to name the candidates during the event, citing privacy concerns, and didn’t say which party they belonged to, but implied they were candidates of note and running for reelection.

    “They were all people who, because of their positions, might have been interesting targets from an espionage standpoint, as well as an election disruption standpoint,” Burt said.

    On Friday, special counsel Robert Mueller’s office announced charges against 12 GRU officers it accused of conducting a months-long campaign to hack Democrats in 2016, particularly those working to elect Hillary Clinton, and leaking what it found in an effort to hurt her candidacy. Those same hackers attacked the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee that year, using the fictitious persona Guccifer 2.0 to release assessments of candidates in various House races.

    The GRU’s tactics have rankled Western intelligence agencies, which view hacking politicians as standard spycraft, but leaking that information to be a major violation of norms. A hacker group from a second Russian intelligence agency had penetrated the DNC as early as 2015, but didn’t spread that information, and has avoided the kind of international condemnation aimed at the GRU.

    GRU hackers are believed to be behind a number of global hack-and-leak operations aimed at entities adversarial to Russia, including French President Emmanuel Macron’s 2017 campaign and the World Anti-Doping Agency, whose reports led to Russia’s ban from the 2018 Olympics over its massive doping program.

    In recent weeks, officials from the Department of Homeland Security have insisted that though they’re watchful of potential Russian hacking, they’ve seen no sustained campaign against election systems.

    DHS has considered election equipment and voter registration databases critical infrastructure, and thus under its umbrella of protection, since the beginning of 2017. But while the tech industry has provided campaigns with some free tools, there is no such overarching body or regulation specifically protecting them. A number of Democratic campaigns told BuzzFeed News in March that they had received no cybersecurity advice in 2018.

    When asked by BuzzFeed News, Microsoft also declined to address which parties it had seen targeted. A representative from the Republican National Committee didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

    A representative from the Democratic National Committee, Xochitl Hinojosa, didn't address whether any Democrats had been targeted, but told BuzzFeed News that “We saw the Russians attack our democracy in 2016 and we know they're a threat in 2018, 2020 and beyond. Unfortunately, the President refuses to acknowledge this serious threat to our country, and House Republicans are refusing to increase funding for election security.”
