Even though the Cold War has been over for many years, the U.S. continues to be at odds with Russia. As the relationship evolved, so has the nature of the fight between the two countries. Now, cyberattacks against the Democratic National Committee have led to finger pointing as to who is the blame.
Recently, Russia has been linked to the July 2016 data breach at the Democratic National Committee. The breach exposed e-mails that led to the ouster of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) as DNC chairwoman and showed a plan to undermine the campaign of then-Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and cybersecurity professionals believe that Russia is the main culprit behind the hacks. However in an interview with Bloomberg News, Russian President Vladimir Putin denied that the Russian government was involved in the DNC hack. Instead, he called the attack a public service because it brought important information to light.
As a response to Putin’s dismissal and amid growing tensions with Russia, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) sent a letter Sept. 6 urging Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to “come together” to “defend our democracy from Russia’s meddling.” Both the Democrats and Republican “must present a united front in the fact of Russia’s attempts to tamper with the will of” U.S. citizens, Pelosi said.
