Despicable Me

Despicable Me is a delightful comedy with a bad guy, aided and abetted by minions, becoming good after adopting 3 little girls who melt his steely heart after a career of doing nefarious things like stealing the moon. Funny, insightful and pretty damn cool, it's an animation that works but, as per BRT, this blurb isn't about Gru but rather about the Russians and their alleged effort to give the election to Trump by compromising the election process, Needless to say, this is serious business that needs full disclosure now before disaster strikes in the way of diplomatic relations with an extremely powerful adversary. As prelude, here is a rant by yours truly regarding this rather amazing story.

He said, they said. Where is the conclusive proof.? Is it a leak or a hack? A very big difference as to what these two concepts mean, something the mainline "press" and brain dead politicians conveniently have not defined. 

To whit. 

A leak is where someone physically takes data and distributes to outside parties. Think Snowden and a thumb drive. 

A hack is a remote controlled process requiring breaking into networks and servers. Phishing is a really good way to do that. 

Question, if it was a hack, the NSA would know who did it and how it was done. With a leak, it's an inside job. Thus far, no arrests, nothing in terms of definitive evidence of Russian government involvement in trying to game the US election.

It's time to put this to bed and now, before it's too late.

Had to add this bon bon. Phishing anyone?

And so it goes. - K. Vonnegut

Addendum - The betting pool favors a leak as seen by guys who know the intel drill from the get go.
