Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri is the first known target of Russian midterm election interference. Hackers targeted McCaskill’s office, but there is no evidence that their attempt was successful.
McCaskill said that she “would not be intimidated” by Russia, but used the incident to highlight the ongoing problem.
Trump later took to Twitter to talk about Russian interference, saying that he was “concerned”. Then, he went full ludicrous: “Based on the fact that no President has been tougher on Russia than me, they will be pushing very hard for the Democrats. They definitely don’t want Trump!”
Wait, what? Either Trump is completely delusional, or (more likely) he knows his supporters will believe anything he says.
