Hackers targeted all 50 states in 2016.

https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2019/04/dhs-fbi-say-election-systems-in-50-states-were-targeted-in-2016/

The "actors" performed their research "in alphabetical order by state name," the bulletin states, "suggesting that at least the initial research was not targeted at specific states." The research focused on Secretary of State voter registration and election results sites, but it also drilled down on some local election officials' webpages. As they accessed sites, actors "regularly attempted to identify and exploit SQL database vulnerabilities in webservers and databases."

1. After Kelly left DHS it was revealed that they got into 20 states.

It took a whole year for us to be informed of that. And now it's 50 states. Nobody seems to care.

2. This is exactly why Democrats can't wait until 2020,

 

With all of the cheating, election fraud, voter suppression, and last but not least, voting into black holes, into machines that are never independently audited, there is no guarantee that we will win, that the votes are counted correctly.

Drastic times require drastic measures, and we all agree we are in drastic times. Subpoenas need to flow now and we need to impeach now because it is the only way we will get more of the Mueller report before the election.

We need tough as nails Democrats who aren't afraid to stand toe to toe with Trump and his traitors. I don't even give a shit about policy, Republicans win without having an agenda. Our agenda needs to be to take down Trump, to take down McConnell, to take down Barr. We need to fight them tooth and nail, the longer we wait, the harder it will get.
