Recent events have emerged showing Rudy Giuliani, and the Trump administration is not the only one who is interested in the Biden scandal. Russian military hackers have been caught hacking into the Ukrainian gas Company known as Burisma. The Russian and the Ukraine government are closely related as they are allies, and both agree former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden were behind the corruption involved with Burisma. Hacking attempts have been ongoing since November of last year, and there is no information as to what they have found, but there is the word they have found out something.
With the timing of the hacking and the large scale drawn to everyone’s attention, experts are saying it is evident the Russians are looking for anything they can use to embarrass the Bidens. It is apparent to be the same information President Trump was requesting from Ukraine, which led to the Democrats impeaching him in the House.
American intelligence agencies are saying the tactics are similar from when the Russians hacked the emails sent back and forth from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman to the Democratic National Committee. It was the same type of scandal from the 2016 elections where no evidence was shown President Trump had any association within the scandal. There was no collusion. The evidence reverted back to Russia and Ukraine only.
The Russian hackers derived from the military intelligence unit formally known as the GRU. Private researchers called them by the name “Fancy Bear.” The group used phishing emails to steal passwords and usernames, according to Silicon Valley, also known as Area 1. Hackers built websites and sent out waves of sign-in pages to other employees within Burisma to make it seem like the emails were coming from within the company.
Some of the employees fell for the scam and gave their login credentials. All it takes is for one employee to give away their information, and the hackers can have a field day with Burisma’s other servers.
A co-founder of Area 1, Oren Falkowitz, said, “The attacks were successful.” Mr. Falkowitz added, “The timing of the Russian campaign mirrors the G.R.U. hacks we saw in 2016 against the D.N.C. and John Podesta. Once again, they are stealing email credentials, in what we can only assume is a repeat of Russian interference in the last election.”
The hacking taking place within Burisma is running side by side with Russian spies who are also looking to unearth information on the Bidens from Ukraine. Russia is not a country to be trusted by anyone.
One official said, “The spies are trying to penetrate Burisma and working sources in the Ukrainian government in search of emails, financial records, and legal documents.” Neither Burisma nor Russia have commented on the accusations.
Even after the Trump administration placed sanctions on Russia for hacking into the 2016 elections, American officials are once again warning that Russia is in the works of doing it again before the 2020 elections. It is unclear precisely what they are looking for, specifically.
Still, it is possible, they may want to keep an eye on what American intelligence knows. They may be looking for something to use against us or another country when their timing is right for whatever it is they are planning. The problem is President Trump will most likely be the one Democrats blame for this too.
President Trump views the Russian interference in the 2016 elections as an attack on his legitimate victory in the presidential race. Trump also works alongside the intelligence agencies to ensure this type of intervention never happens again. We all know Hilliary and the Democrats were behind the scheme, but they still lost a rigged election.
The Biden campaign did not take long to blow everything out of proportion and attack President Trump when the news came out about the hacking into the Burisma Gas Company. They were the first to blame Trump immediately.
A spokesman from the Biden campaign stated, “Donald Trump tried to coerce Ukraine into lying about Joe Biden and a major bipartisan, international anti-corruption victory because he recognized that he can’t beat the vice president. Now we know that Vladimir Putin also sees Joe Biden as a threat.”
Bates added, “Any American president who had not repeatedly encouraged foreign interventions of this kind would immediately condemn this attack on the sovereignty of our elections.”
Bates is a bit behind the times because President Trump already condemned and punished Russia with sanctions.
