Then, on October 30th, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid wrote a letter to James Comey, the director of the F.B.I., charging that the Bureau was withholding information about “close ties and coordination” between the Trump campaign and Russia. On Inauguration Day, Liz Spayd, the Times ’ ombudsman, published a column criticizing the paper’s handling of stories related to Trump and Russia, including the Alfa Bank connection. Democratic senators expressed concern that Benczkowski had taken on work for Alfa Bank; he had been a senior member of Trump’s transition team and had good reason to expect that he would be appointed to a job in the Administration. He attributed the traffic to kompromat , but also expounded a scenario in which it had been caused by a technical glitch: Trump e-mails “hidden” in the system were intermittently processed by the bank’s security software, an application called Trend Micro Deep Discovery Inspector. Whatever the reason that the Trump domain vanished, Alfa Bank’s servers continued trying to look it up: Max’s group observed fifteen failed attempts that Friday, twenty-eight on Saturday, none on Sunday, ninety on Monday, twenty on Tuesday.

Without specific technical knowledge, this can be a pretty difficult story to explain. Suffice to say that some of this directly relates to what I do in my day job and to experts I have regular interactions with. Something very unusual and highly suspicious is going on. There's no way to tell specifically *what*, and that's entirely the fault of a complicit Republican party who refuses to conduct a thorough investigation, one assumes, because they know it will uncover additional corruption among their ranks. This is an example of why, even though I have a long list of issues with the democratic party, I think it's monumentally important they get control of the government and are pushed to actually deal with this stuff. Corruption is toxic and it spreads and infects the whole system—and at some point, it strains the patience of the governed. When government loses the consent of the governed, it's like opening Pandora's box. What comes after is bad news. https://buff.ly/2Rz8azt
