What is this crap?
What does “hacking the election” even mean?
Why are we still hearing about this without having ever been given a simple explanation?
An alleged Russian hacker has been arrested in Spain at the request of American authorities.
Pyotr Levashov was arrested in Barcelona at the end of last week on a US computer crimes warrant, a spokeswoman for Spain’s National Court, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with court rules, told the Associated Press.
Levashov’s arrest drew immediate attention after his wife told RT he was linked to America’s 2016 election hacking.
RT quoted Maria Levashova as saying armed police stormed into their apartment in Barcelona overnight, keeping her and her friend locked in a room for two hours while they quizzed Levashov.
She said when she spoke to her husband on the phone from the police station, he told her he was told he had created a computer virus that was “linked to Trump’s election win.”
What the hell does that even mean?
How was a computer virus linked to the election win?
Congress and the intelligence community have confirmed that the voting machines were not hacked.
So what could a virus have done?
Sent Podesta a phishing email?
What is going on here?
