Trump contradicts Pompeo, holds China responsible for cyber attack

On Friday, Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo claimed that Russia was ’pretty clearly’ the source of the cyber attack against the United States. However, on Saturday, President Trump contradicted Pompeo stating that China was the country behind the espionage. The former justified his stance by asserting that the media is ’petrified’ of ’discussing the possibility that it may be China (it may!).’

“Trump’s unsubstantiated claims come just a day after U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo said Russia was “pretty clearly” behind the cyberattack.” “Pompeo was the first Trump administration official to publicly tie the Kremlin to the widespread intrusion.” “We’re still unpacking precisely what it is, and I’m sure some of it will remain classified,” Pompeo said in an interview late Friday with radio talk show host Mark Levin. Pompeo said it was a “very significant effort.” “And I think it’s the case now that we can say pretty clearly that it was the Russians that engaged in this activity,” he continued. Why does trump continue to defend Russia and rarely holds them accountable for anything? So very suspicious.

Trump wouldn’t understand it if they presented it to him in join-the-dot format. You can just imagine him asking “How about we turn off the internet? Can we do that?”

Perhaps Trump can pursue one of his true passions after January 20, epidemiology or cyber security. He’s already mastered bankruptcy and the “collusionary” arts. Nothing more than a meme with a twitter account.

These hackers can hide their identity online, so how can you be certain who is behind it? It seems like they want to blame someone, and it must be Russia or China. We will never really know.

China dropped a pandemic virus on the world. During the ensuing economic downturn, they siezed islands and declared waterways far from China to be Chinese territory. They forced slaves to pick cotton and they've expanded their border claims near India.... But no.. There's no way they'd launch a cyber war on the west... Never.

Do any of you people understand what cyber espionage is? A common use is tunneling into a vpn server in another country and then infecting connecting clients turning them into zombies and pretending to be that country when carrying out your attack. Russia is by far the largest hoster of low cost vpn servers globally. Russia is also notoriously bad at cyber security. This means OF COURSE IT WILL LOOK LIKE RUSSIA YOU DIMWITTS.
