So Dutch intelligence recorded the entire Russian hack of the US election, & has the hackers & their visitors *on* *video.*

Things just got exciting.
.@CNN .@ABC .@CBS .@NBCNews .@MSNBC
In other words, it’s even more beyond question that Russia hacked the election – we literally have them on camera doing it. We have their faces, & the faces of those directly overseeing them.

MUST-READ: How the Kremlin's tactic of pushing propaganda through *paid freelance journalists* was successful in 2016 and especially 2017. washingtonpost.com/world/national…
The FBI's counterintelligence investigation of this infiltration of US journalism - codenamed "NorthernNight" - was in operation in FEBRUARY 2016. Almost two years ago.
The Kremlin's goal? Penetrate left-leaning US media with propaganda that dovetailed with its direct intelligence operations, such as the hack of US political parties.

<INTEL TECHNIQUE THREAD>

If the Steele Dossier is going to get used by media to drive suspicion, then let's talk about how HUMINT tradecraft works.
NOTE: WHEN WE HAVE TO TALK ABOUT THIS STUFF IN PUBLIC, IT MEANS THINGS ARE VERY WEIRD.

That said, it's 2017, and we're discussing how "HUMINT" gets verified.

Huh?
HUMINT is spook jargon for Human Intelligence - the information derived from people. "We know a guy. He said X."

This is in contrast to IMINT, Image Intelligence, or SIGINT, Signals Intelligence.

1. There are tens of thousands of folks who dedicate their lives to protecting the US, who go periodically go through faintly rigorous background checks and state of the art training, who take lower pay, who can’t talk about their work even to defend themselves.
2. There are many different types of information these intelligence professionals following very strict legal guidelines collect and analyze l, cross check, verify, and report. They work countless hours sometimes in isolation to provide the best assessments for the president.
3. Sometimes they get it wrong, sometimes they get compromised, but there are safeguards and various other mechanisms to help ensure these factors are accounted for in the final products presented to the president.

Trump plays checkers, while those around him play 3-D chess🔥

Investigative leads ARE being pursued. Good things ARE happening.👀
Team🇷🇺Trump was *VERY* sloppy w/their phones, computers, networks & otherwise. USIC is getting LOTS of help from our friends‼️

#FVEY
Remember, @TrumpRussia🇷🇺isn't just about US. It's BIGGER. This is about MONEY buying governments. It started in small countries, but now⁉️

1. "Former" MI-6 officer - HEAD OF ITS RUSSIA DESK.

2. Hey, did Trump and his Russian spy pals break laws? We are so curious! 😍😎
3. "UNVERIFIED" 😂😂😂😂 Yeah, we just didn't want you to know how freakin' verified this stuff was, as it read like finished intel.

Thread.

Something I've learned and can't explicitly report on, in Trump Russia, but which I'm totally certain of now;
America is so powerful in matters of cyber anything and SIGINT anything that if @PutinRF understood it, he'd never have tried this.
It's not just America's overwhelming military might, and national prosperity. It is also their total dominance in all forms of communication
