  1. When I worked for the FBI mainframe database center. American for some reason hired the Japanese to program our computers, stating that it would be cheaper than hiring US citizens. Could this be the case again

  2. Oh my god, you guys at CBS, are clueless. Stop all this cloak and dagger BS and pretending that the hacks had any affect on 2016. The only thing shocking in that election were corporate news awful biased expectations. First, the voting is too decentralized. Second , the cities with idiot IT are stewarded by Democrats, one being Baltimore who's mayor just got ousted for corruption while they got their systems infected. There's no need for paranoia and conflation of issues invented by media cluelessness. All that is required is accountable officials able to govern with conpetency, voter ID, and paper ballots.

  3. Excuse me!?? And who do you think heads up homeland security!? I smell bs. Paper ballots in every county. Replace republicon favored company owned, old hackable voting machines.

  4. For sure the chicons will do their con thing as they want a different US president in power to give them better trade deals.

  5. If you don’t think theU.S. mettles in the election of other countries you’re blind. Who elected the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt??? His name starts with an O and he hates America

  6. So far, not one ransomware attack on anything but computers hooked to the Internet. In New York City, for example, the voting scanners and election data storage are isolated from the Internet. The same federal government that allowed Jeffrey Epstein to be murdered in his locked prison cell is now, through the totally corrupt Homeland Security Agency, trying to control the count in national elections.

  7. This country is getting stupid!

    Why have "any" of our voting machines electronic!

    We need to go back to paper ballots, otherwise they are inviting more problems!

    Just ignorant!

  8. Voters it’s insane, you wait till 2020 this is going to happen the Beast is coming The US to me it’s the evil is coming this guy is really going to be bad news the people have no clue because they don’t know about Jesus Christ, this earth it’s about over all there sin , Hollywood, music industry, drugs, sex , rock & roll , also money Wall Street , anything else , no one from another plant is coming , please Gods the creator , the US and the Lucifer he runs the world system, the earth is in trouble

  9. Bunch of lies. Russians didnt do anything to the voting system. Fear mongering and putting in place a fake reason to contest the Trump win that will be overwhelming.

  10. Good luck on that.

    With every new lock someone comes up with a key or they find a way to cut the lock off. It is neverending.

  11. I always…. Say Befor
