Huh: Super-Pro-Trump Russians Also Tried to Hack Heritage Foundation, Dubbed "Trump's Think Tank," Shortly Before Election

It's almost as if Russians were trying to generally undermine democracy in America, as they've been doing for 70 years, sometimes with direct cooperation by Democratic Senators.

The same hackers believed to have been behind the hacking of the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chair John Podesta targeted employees at the conservative Heritage Foundation during the run-up to the 2016 election, The Daily Caller has learned.

The influential nonprofit worked closely with the Trump transition team both before and after the election, and was dubbed "Donald Trump’s think tank" by CNN. The Trump campaign relied on Heritage’s research for policy ideas, a fact that the nonprofit proudly promoted on its website.

Heritage alerted employees to the phishing attempts in an email just two weeks before the election, adding that the FBI had contacted Heritage about the phishing attempts.

I'm sure this will merit intense coverage from the usual suspects.
