    First attempts by foreign hackers to disrupt the election came in the form of malware and phising emails, which allowed them into systems inside the Democratic National Committee.

    U.S. intelligence sources tell CBS News this type of cyber hacking could not have happened without Vladimir Putin’s blessing, saying: “The orders to do it would have had to come from the highest level.”

    It took months for an urgent alert from federal investigators to get through to the party.

    “The FBI called the DNC help desk which then got transferred to the DNC IT administrator,” said Adam Hodge of the DNC.

    “It took several months before the DNC realized that it had been contacted by the FBI?” Pegues asked.

    “To verify the authenticity of the FBI agent who said that he said who he said he was,” Hodge said

    “Several months?” Pegues asked.

    “It’s hard to believe, but that’s the reality,” Hodge said.


    Huh?

    Victimized by malware emails and phishing? Mis-routing an FBI call and ignoring the FBI for months? As I was reading the article, I half-expected to read that the DNC blew half its money in a deal with the Crown Prince of Nigeria's efforts to get back his royal fortune.

    If there's a swamp that really does deserve to be drained, it's the DNC and maybe the Democratic party. Unprecedented losses in state governments across the country, no control of either Congressional House in 2 straight elections and a loss in a presidential election against an offensive dim-witted oaf in an election that almost could not be lost.

    When a majority of the American people (and often a clear majority) agree with you in virtually all planks of your platform and you still can't win an election to save your life, there's a problem. The Democratic organization has become the standard in incompetence that was masked by the personal charisma and popularity of Barack Obama. With no more Obama to save them, the incompetence is there for all to see.

    Blow it up and start over.

    Yes, They can start by getting rid of the Clinton's. Send them off to the book tour or something. Some fresh faces on the left wing would be welcome change.
