We Should Be Shocked, Shocked, at Reports of Russian Interference in US Elections | The Nation

Cyber-espionage is a serious threat, no question. But who is the villain?

When intelligence officers give the president his daily morning briefing, most of the information has been collected by our cyber-spies at the NSA and CIA. “It’s at least 75 percent, and going up,” said Mike McConnell, director of national intelligence for George W. Bush (kudos to Michael Riley of Bloomberg for his smart reporting on this in 2013.)
