I realize it is Skinner's decision to make as to how much he wants to pursue, discuss about the matter. However, IF this was part of a larger effort to shut down Dem/Progressive voices and information prior to and following the election, in light of what happened with social media and the Russians, this does need to be explored IMO.

I was trying to understand, I was trying not to cry.
I was frightened beyond belief and trying not to panic realizing what it all could mean.

Curious...may I ask why you're directing your questions to 'Morning Joe'? Thanks.

to keep DUers from communicating with one another and finding interference in the election on election day. I hope the FBI, if the owners wish, find the culprits.

I couldn't get in at all and that stupid thing kept on coming up. I'm usually not superstitious but I took it as a omen.

On a night that we could have been altogether posting our comments we were hijacked and hacked.

It took me a long time to come back here. That just freaked me out, & I thought immediately, we were hacked by something or someone. When this Russian hacking scheme came to the forefront, I felt in my gut, it was them.
