Bloomberg and Ars Technica both reported this morning that election databases and related systems in 39 states, far more than initially reported, were attacked by Russian hackers during the 2016 election. The attacks all intruded into systems storing information about voter rolls, and tried to delete or modify voter registration data to disrupt voting on Election Day.

Wisconsin, which went for popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп by just over 20,000 votes, purged 200,000 Democratic voters (primarily African-Americans) from its rolls. Most of the voter suppression was accomplished via draconian voter ID laws. But the new revelation about direct Russian hacking raises a far more sinister possibility in that state.

When asked about this, a White House aide rolled her eyes and said, “Duh, how else would  Трамп have eked out those victories in a few key states by just over 70,000 votes?”

The aide was then quickly taken away by agents of HYDRA after Jared Kushner dropped a smoke bomb.

Serial fabulist and white supremacist Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, the current Attorney General of the United States, is scheduled to speak to the Senate Intelligence committee at 2.30pm EST today, to answer questions about various lies he told in relation to meetings he had with Russia in an open session.

Senate Republicans meanwhile are working behind closed doors to take away health care from millions of Americans.

Senate Republicans are hoping they can draw out their questions to Sessions, to both make it appear that he didn’t lie and to give more cover to their colleagues trying to take away health care.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein affirmed his support for Russia special counsel Robert Mueller on Tuesday, despite recent suggestions that President Trump was weighing Mueller’s dismissal.

“Director Mueller is going to have the full independence he needs to conduct that investigation,” Rosenstein said. Rosenstein went further and said he would only be able to fire Mueller for good cause.

As a reminder, Rosenstein wrote the memo explaining the good cause for firing FBI Director James Comey.

Aides say that Rosenstein may change his mind later depending on how hard popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп tries to shake his hand later today.
