Russian Military Hacked Burisma as Impeachment Inquiry in House Reached Public Phase

Russian Military Hacked Burisma as Impeachment Inquiry in House Reached Public Phase
by Matt Naham | 7:58 pm, January 13th, 2020

Russian military intelligence officers hacked the Ukrainian gas company, Burisma Holdings, as the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump was shifting into overdrive in the House of Representatives back in early November.

November, you may recall, was the month when numerous Trump administration officials began testifying publicly before Chairman Adam Schiff’s (D-Calif.) House Intelligence Committee. According to the New York Times, it was also the month that Russian hackers began hacking the firm where Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden used to be a board member.

What on earth could they have been looking for and why? Unsurprisingly, it was suggested that Russia was looking for dirt on the Bidens, in a manner reminiscent to all of Russia’s widespread 2016 election interference — particularly that which targeted the DNC and Hillary Clinton. President Trump and Rudy Giuliani’s quest for dirt on the Bidens and related efforts to get the Ukrainian government to announce “investigations” are at the very heart of the impeachment inquiry.

Per the Times:

The Russian tactics are strikingly similar to what American intelligence agencies say was Russia’s hacking of emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman and the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 presidential campaign. In that case, once they had the emails, the Russians used trolls to spread and spin the material, and built an echo chamber to widen its effect.
